Craftin Desert Divas August Release – Sneak Peek Day 3!

Hey lovelies!
It’s day 3 of Craftin Desert Divas’ August release sneak peek week! Today there is a whole lotta cuteness being showcased for your inspiration, so be sure to head over to the Craftin Desert Divas blog post to see what the other DT members have created for you!
Today I’m showcasing the Dam Shame set with this sweet little beaver and bug!
1.jpg
I started by cutting a panel from white card stock using the Torn Paper Dies, I blended over the polygon stencil using Broken China and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink having them overlap in the middle to create the green shade. I lightly sprayed my panel with my Distress Sprayer bottle to give it a distressed look and dried the excess water droplets with a paper towel. I put down some of the Broken China Distress Oxide ink on a stamping block, mixed with a little water and splattered over the surface too for an extra layer before setting it aside to dry.

I stamped out my cute little beaver and bug using Memento Tuxedo Black ink before moving on to colouring with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

I used TN5, TN3, TN1, GB2 & GB1 for the beaver’s fur. I used a combination of BG5, TN5 & TN3 for his tail and I filled his nose in with IG5. I used TN5 & TN3 for the twigs, along with LG5 & LG3 for the leaves. For his glasses I blended DR2 & CR7 and finished him up with a little GG1 to shade his eyes and just under his top lip before adding my highlights using my white gelly roll pen. I coloured the body of the bug with GB4 & LY1 and the wings with GT1 & IB1 and added a few small highlights along the top of his head and wings.

I cut a panel using white card stock and used the large Torn Paper die to cut a window so I could inlay my ink blended panel. I prepped my panel with my powder tool applicator before stamping my sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I fussy cut my characters out and popped them up with some foam tape to the left of my sentiment.

I adhered my panel to my card base using some foam tape and added some glow in the dark Nuvo drops in the shade Blue Crush to finish my card, leaving them to set for a full 24 hours in a safe space.

Craftin Desert Divas August Release – Sneak Peek Day 2!

Hello lovelies!
August release week with Craftin Desert Divas is finally here! I know some of you have been just as excited as I am, so I’m here to showcase a card I made using the brand new adorable set Grateful Trolls and the new Hill Scene 2 stencil! I am madly in love with this set and I know all of you will be too! Make sure you click “going” to the facebook event for this release so you don’t miss out on any of the fun!
1.jpg
I started off by cutting down a panel from white card stock. I blended in clouds using the Hill Scene 2 stencil, Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink, changing up which side of the stencil I use each time and sometimes even flipping it over! I lightly sprayed the panel with my Distress Sprayer bottle when I had covered the entire panel and mopped up the excess using a paper towel.
2.jpg
I stamped my cute little troll using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. I added some rosy cheeks with a pink pencil, added three little dots to each cheek using my white gelly roll pen before adding highlights to the rest of my image. Once they had dried I fussy cut my image out and set it aside for a bit.
3.jpg
I cut a strip of white card stock to fit across my panel for my sentiment and to ground my troll later on. I prepped the strip with my powder tool applicator, stamped my sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink, coated it in clear embossing powder and set it with my heat tool. I adhered the strip to my panel using double sided tape.

I adhered my troll to my panel using double sided foam tape before backing my entire panel with the same tape and adhering to my card base. I adhered a couple of sequins from the Fall Harvest mix using liquid adhesive to finish this card up and give it a little sparkle!
