CDD Flower Basket Skunk Pop Up Box Card

Hello. I'd like to share a Pop Up Box Card I've made using a adorable Craftin Desert Diva's digital stamp called Flower Basket Skunk. If you like this guy there are so many fabulous new images, svg files and die cutters in the store at the moment you can find them here. Over on the Craftin Desert Diva's Gallery Group there have been lots of fantastic inspiration creations by the Design Team showcasing them.


Here's a close up of the adorable Craftin Desert Diva's image!!

I had so much fun with this card! I loved creating the scene for the adorable image. I've coloured Flower Basket Skunk using Touch Five Markers and Rembrandt Aquarell Pencils. I created the background base from grass die cuts coloured with Green Grass Distress Inks. I've added brick embossing folders on the under base of the card and swirl embossing folder to the blue background. The sentiment I computer generated myself. Then I embellished with lots of flowers, a Heart Banner Die, flower and bird die cuts on the side and small butterflies punches stuck to acetate.

I created this card for the Craftin Desert Diva's May's Mood Board Monthly Challenge. You can find this challenge in the Facebook group.

Using this mood board.

LS Bride and Groom Card

Hi. Today I'm happy to be sharing my new creation for the new Lemon Shortbread Blog Challenge which is challenge #42. I've done a bit of experimenting with this make using two digital stamps merged together to create a Bride and Groom. The images I've used are Bride Gown and Kissing Couple. Here's where you can find more of Lemon Shortbread's beautiful images.


I've coloured them using Touch Five Marker and pencils. I've used die cutters to make the frame, flowers and foliage. I did a bit of recycling and experimenting with the windows pattern glass effect. I used a plastic milk bottle and ran a M&C Boutique flourish die cut that I got from The Works. It created this lovely effect on the reverse. So I decided to add it to my card. So you could see the effect I created more clearly I put dark blue card stock behind it. I must say I was pleased by how the window turned out. I computer generated the sentiment myself.

SBS May Blooms Double Diamond Fold Card

Hi. I'd like to share my very feminine double diamond fold card I've made for Simply B Stamps Facebook Group Progressive Challenge. I have to say I really enjoyed creating with this beautiful image called May Blooms Digi.


I coloured her using Touch Five Markers and pencils. The sentiment on the right came with the image from May Simply B Stamp. The sentiment on the left is from Clearly Besotted stamp set called Butterfly Wishes. I've added two pattern papers to the diamond's which to be fair look more like rectangles.. I think I got my measurements wrong. I added a die cut, two premade flowers and some sequins on sting behind the image. I also added a small gem at each end of the card.
