Wishing you a lifetime of happiness

Hi everyone, this is my last post as a design team member for Craftin Desert Divas. I've decided to step down for the upcoming term but I had such a wonderful time at this incredible and talented team!

For my final card I created a rather unusual one for this time of year. But I guess everybody needs some cooling down during these hot summer months. I printed these cute penguins on some mix media card stock and colored them in with Zig markers.

I decided to create a distressed background using different shades of blue. I then die cut the distressed card stock with the medium square of the Inside Scalloped Square dies and keep both the frame as well as the inside piece. Using some foam tape, I adhered the square on a standard white card base and also adhered the penguins in the center.

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment "Wishing you a lifetime of happiness" with black ink below the square. 

I hope you enjoyed this last card from me. Have a great day!

Without the rain there would be no rainbow (Craftin Desert Divas)

Hi everyone, I am back with another fun card. I absolutely love the Stormy Weather stamp set by Craftin Desert Divas that was released not so long ago. The images are so adorable and I like the sentiments that come with it.

So for this card I started off stamping the little mice holding the umbrella on mix media card stock and colored him in with my Zig markers. I also wanted to create a simple but unique background that looked like rain and puddles. So I pressed different blue Distress Inks on a slick surface, spritzed them with water and pressed a piece of watercolor paper into the ink. I did that a couple of times, letting the ink dry in between, until I was satisfied. I used the largest of the Fancy Frame dies to die cut the background panel from the watercolor card stock. 
I then die cut the cloud from the Rainbow Die from white card stock and stamped the sentiment "Without the rain there would be no rainbow" on top. To finish off the card I adhered the background panel to a white card base and also placed the mice in the bottom left corner using 3D foam squares. I did the same with the cloud.

I hope you like this card! Have a great day!
