Tags for Edible Christmas Gifts

Hi everyone, today I have an easy and fun project for you. I made a cookie mix and a mulled wine mix for two friends of mine for Christmas. I used two glass jars for my ingredients so the recipients can immediately see them.
I wanted to include the ingredients and instructions on tags so I went ahead and die cut a tag from white and red card stock using the "Shake It Up" die set as well as the "Stitched In Circles" die set. I also used the add ons for the tag from the first set to create some stitching. 

On the red tag I wrote the name of the mix and also the ingredients included in the mix. On the second, white tag I wrote the instructions so the recipient will know how to proceed. For the cookie mix I also included the little cookie from the "Kitchen Cuties" stamp set because it was just perfect for it.

I really love giving self-made gifts and I think my friends will like them. And in addition they will also have a nice jar for storage. I hope I could inspire you to give your own mixes to friends and family and decorate them with goodies from Craftin Desert Divas.

Happy Insta Girls Christmas Hop 2016

Hi everyone and welcome back to another Happy Insta Girls Blog Hop! This group was initiated by the lovely Birka and I am happy that she asked me to join this group over a year ago with so many amazing and talented girls!

I am so excited to show you the card that I got from Maike! But she did not only send me a card but also included an advent calendar and a little gift that I want to show you before.

Aren't these gift super sweet? Thank you so so much, Maike! But now I want to show you the wonderful card that I got from her! As you might know I love interactive card. That's why I was so happy that I got one from Maike: a twist and pop card! But take a look for yourself! 

Isn't this wonderful? The inside scene is so beautifully done! I can't stop looking at it with all the little details! Thank you so much! 

But now I want to show you the card that I made for Biggi. And you might have guessed already in which direction I was going. Yes... I made an interactive card ;) This time I made a pull card which I had never done before but I like how it turned out. 

I used the cute Yeti stamps from My Favorite Things which reveal a German sentiment when you pull on the flaps of the card. Here is a video so you can see the card in action. 

I really hope you enjoyed the card that I made. Now hop on to see what Biggi created!

Dragon LED Candle Lantern

Hi everyone, I am back with another fun project. I thought the dragons from the new "Dragon Festival" stamp set would be perfect to decorate a lantern. So I created a simple lantern cutting file and cut it from dark red card stock.

You can download the cutting file here: DOWNLOAD (.fcm, .svg, .pdf)

Then, I cut four pieces of vellum which were a bit larger than each window of the lantern to be able to glue to the inside. Before assembling, I decorated each window and stamped the cute dragons, lanterns, and Chinese symbols on the vellum with VersaMark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder.

I also did some basic Copic coloring with red and yellow markers. Tip: To avoid coloring the white embossing powder color the images from the back side. 

Then I adhered each vellum piece to the frames and assembled the lantern.

Please only use these lanterns with LED candles and NO real candles due to fire hazards.
