Springtime Fairy Card

Hello Everyone! Today I want to share with you a Springtime Fairy card that I made using one of the Gorgeous Fairy stamps from Vilda Stamps.


To create my card I used Vilda Stamp Sitting Fairy V15 that you can find in the Vilda Shop here:


To make my card first I stamped the sitting fairy onto 110 lb. plain white card stock. Next I colored the image in with Copics, and then used a white paint pen to add my highlights. I then fussy cut this Beautiful fairy out and set her aside while I created my card base.
To create my card base I cut 2 fancy frame mats from plain card stock and then inked the edges with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. Next I cut the flowers from plain white card stock and used Distress ink in Picked Raspberries and Mustard Seed to blend onto my flowers so that they would match my fairy, and tie the whole card together. To finish I glued all of the flowers and leaves onto my card base, and then attached the fairy with foam tape for some added height and dimension. I then added some Nuvo drops in Purple for some extra embellishment. I hope that you are inspired by my card to try out your own creations with these Gorgeous stamps.

To create my card I used the following stamps and dies from La-La Land Crafts:







To create my card first I stamped the Paper Doll Marci and the Pumpkins onto 110 lb. plain white card stock. When I first saw this Adorable Paper Doll Marci stamp I just knew I had to transform her into Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Hair: R59, R29, R35, R22
Skin: BG45, B05, BG15, BG10

Pumpkins: YR07, YR04, R-02, Y00

for my card base I just layered the dies cut from plain and patterned card stock onto my card base. For the moon I cut a 2 inch diameter circle from plain white card stock and then used Distress Ink in the following colors to detail my moon: Mustard Seed, and Ripe Persimmon. For a smooth blend I just used a regular foam makeup sponge. To finish my card I added rhinestones, ribbon, and some paper flowers. I hope that you are inspired by my card to try out your own creations with these Beautiful stamps and dies. Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

A Royal Birthday

Hello Everyone! Today I want to stop by and share with you a Royal Birthday Card that I created using an Adorable stamp from La La Land Crafts.


To create my card I used the following supplies: 



I just love this sweet Egyptian Princess, and even though she was meant to be a Halloween stamp I wanted to show you that she could be used for other occasions as well by just coloring her a different way. 

To make my card first I cut my base card layer in a ocean blue card stock. For my next layer I used a spellbinders die and cut the intricate frame in gold metallic card stock. I then used one of the smaller frames from that same die set and cut the next layer from a pattern paper I created using an image of papayrus scrolls.

Next I sized the sweet Marci Egyptian Princess to about 4" tall in Illustrator and then printed her off onto 110 lb. plain white card stock. That is one thing I really love about using digi stamps is the ability to size the image based on your intended use. I then colored the image in with the following Copic colors:

Skin: E11, E00, E000, R20, RV21
Hair: 100, C-7, C-5, C-3, C-1
Dress and shoes: YR04, Y17, Y06, Y00, B05, B12, B00

After I was done coloring her in, I then fussy cut her out and attached her to my card base with foam tape and glitter die cut wings placed behind her to give the illusion she has Isis wings. 

To create my flower embellishments I used the Water Lily Die and cut all the pieces 3 flower layers per flower from plain white 110 lb. card stock. I then used Distress Ink in Mustard Seed to blend into the center of the flowers with a foam blending brush. Next I used Distress Ink in Mermaid Lagoon to add the blue tint to the edges of the petals. I then just glued all the layers together and then added a rhinestone and glitter stamen to each flower in the center. 

I really hope that you enjoy my card and are inspired to try out your own creations with these Beautiful stamps!

Treasure Troll Card

Today is Day 4 of our February Product Release over at Craftin Desert Diva's, and today I want to share with you a Treasure Troll Card that I made using our new Treasure Troll stamps, Mine digi stamp, and Gemstone papers.


Here are the products I used and the links to the items in the shop: 






To make my card first I printed out the pink tone of the gemstone papers (sized to standard 8.5" x 11") and the mine digi stamp (sized to 5" x 5") onto two different sheets of 110 plain white card stock. Next I used Copics to add color and shadows to the background digi stamp. I created both the digi stamp and the papers as CDD exclusives to coordinate perfectly with our Adorable new trolls. 

Next I used Prima Watercolors in Decadent Pies to add some contrasting watercolor washes over the background, and to add pops of color to make the gems look like they were lighting up the mine walls. I used wet into wet washes so that I didn't end up with any harsh lines. Once I was done with the background I set it aside to let it dry completely. 

While my background was drying I stamped the cute little trolls and gems from the Treasure Troll set onto plain white card stock and then colored the images in with Copics. I then used a white paint pen to add my highlights and fussy cut the images out. To finish I cut my bottom mat from the gemstone papers and distressed the edges. I then used the inside scalloped frame dies from Craftin Desert Diva's to cut my frame from gold glitter cardstock. I then layered the frame over my finished background and trimmed the background down to fit the frame. After that I attached all of the layers to my card base and then used foam tape to add the little trolls and gemstones to the front of my card. To finish I added just a few rhinestones for some extra sparkle and shine. I really hope that you are inspired by my card to try your own creations with these amazing stamps!
