Gems and Trolls

Hello CDD Friends Waleska here to share with you a very magical card with our cute and famous Trolls and the very versatile Garden Border Die... Aren't you just loving all our border dies?


I started with the night sky, and my two favourite colors to create a very easy night sky are Distress Inks in colors Blue Print Sketch and Black Soot.  I put a light blend of the blue and added the black only on the edges and blend both to create the night sky.  I cut a longer piece of the border die to mask the border of the soil to create a light halo for all the gems, for that I used Distress Oxide Ink Fossilized Amber, for the soil I used regular Distress Ink Walnut Stain with water splashes.

I color all the Trolls  with markers to coordinate the scene.  For the gems I used the same colors of the Trolls and added stickles for sparkle.

I also added little white dots with a gel pen along the card  to create stars and with Versafine Ink I stamped the sentiment.

I love how you can tuck almost anything into the Garden Border die... I tucked the little diamonds, but you can put vegetables, flowers, plants this is a great die for many different types of cards.

I hope you can be inspired to create a magical card for someone special for you, and you can create night sky very easy.

Have a Wonderful day!!

Hello, there... It is time for another Pin-Sight Challenge at the ClassRoom blog, the beautiful inspiration for my card has lots of pinks and oranges...I did a very cool technique with Oxide Inks and vellum... Want to know how? let me share it with you.....


I started with the vellum piece, I first put a little of  Spiced Marmalade in my Ranger Mat and I added a little bit of water... I wanted the ink to be thick, and smooshed the vellum into the oxide ink ( I did not add more water to the piece) I only added the oxide ink and dry it with a heat gun, I did the same thing with the Worn Lipstick ink in the parts I thought it needed.   When I finally got the look I wanted I flip the vellum piece and use the back of it for my card.

                              Vellum Front                           Vellum Back

I stamped with Embossing ink the Mondo Hydrangeas in the right corner of the vellum and added gold embossing powder I also added the same gold embossing powder to the Be-You-tiful Ellen Hutson Die to match the flowers. To frame everything I used the Postage die from Avery Elle in white cardstock. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh the Clear Mix.

I love the effect on the vellum, it kind of looks like Marble, the Oxide inks look Awesome on vellum, but remember you have to use the back of your piece!

Sunny Studio Stamps/Perfect Popsicles/Cool Dad

Hello Friends it is Monday again and that means it is time for another Challenge at the Always Fun Challenges Blog, this week's challenge is "For Male/Father".  I have to say many agree with me that masculine cards are very hard to do; there is not too many male colors to use and you can not embellish the card too much... but I came up with this cool card I hope you like.

CARD DETAILS: I used the Perfect Popsicles from Sunny Studio Stamps and stamped them in different green ink colors to make it a lemon flavor,  I love to mix Lawn Fawn stamps with Sunny Studio because both have Amazing stamp sets and they look great together.  I stamped the cool sun glasses from the new Aloha mini stamp set and the mustache from Dad + Me to create a very cool  Dad popsicle, for the sentiment I used the great Well Connected Alphabet from My Favorite Things (a must have, in my opinion) to personalize the word DAD and finally stamped the sentiment that comes with the Sunny Studio Stamp set! To finish my card I used Nuvo Drops as embellishments in color Apple Green (by the way I need every color there is of this Nuvo Drops) they are almost always the best embellishment! For the card base I used the Avery Elle Postage Die.

I hope you have an Amazing week and you can celebrate the great Man in you life... in my case is my sweet hubby who supports me and is my biggest sponsor for this hobby that makes me so happy!
Remember to enter your projects in the Always Fun Challenges blog.... and have Fun with us!

Lawn Fawn Ahoy, Matey/Cute Beach Girls

Hello.... Today's card was inspired by the June beautiful Butterfly Reflections Ink Mood Board...  I loove this cute girl pirates...  I am on a Beach mood lately and I had this and many more ideas to create summer cards... It is going to be an AWESOME summer!

CARD DETAILS: I started with the sand shaker cutting a hill from Desert Storm Cardstock and with a craft knife I cut 1cm. around the inside of the hill and glue acetate to the back of the hill to create the shaker window.

For the beach background I used Oxide Inks... they blend so effortlessly that I just can't put them away.. for the sunset Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade and for the ocean Faded Jeans with some water splashes.   I added the sand to the card base and add the sand cardstock piece with double sided tape to create the shaker (you have to press extra hard because the sand is more heavy than regular sequins). to glue it to the card.

I colored all the cute girl pirates matching the color combination of the mood board and die cut the great palm trees of the newest release... I glue my girls and add the sentiment with Versafine Onyx black ink.... knowing the Awesome girls I know you can make any girl happy with this one!

I hope you have a great weekend... Mine started today because my kids are home... I am rushing to write this because... you know... they were up at 6:00 a.m. today but on school days can hardly stand up at 7:00 a.m.... and right now they are calling me... MOM, MOM, MOM, MOM....

I am here for you!

Hello Crafty Friends and Lawn Fawn Lovers thank you so much for visiting my blog  today... I hope your starting week is Awesome! I created this card for the current Lawnfawnatics Challenge "Cheerful Get Well" as always I Mix and Match some amazing products from Lawn Fawn.

CARD DETAILS: I cut the Lawn Fawn Hills in desert Storm cardstock.  For the background I used distress inks in colors Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade.  I stamped the dinosaurs on green cardstock and with distress ink I gave them a little color on the edges.  I used the  On the Mend stamp set to accessorize the cute scene!  Most people would agree that when we are not feeling so good... a good friend is always a great medicine! for the ground I used desert storm cardstock also but colored it with distress ink Walnut Stain! for more inspiration please follow me on instagram "craftinglovew"
where I post more often and I share a lot of inspiration.

Hello, I hope you are having a nice day! For my today's card I used almost all of the new an amazing Oxide Inks... Do you know we now have them at the CDD shop? you can also find Nuvo products lots of CDD sequin mixes, cute Doodlebug Paper and Washi... well you might want to check out the Supplies section at the shop and include some of the new products we have to your next purchase!

Now for my card  I used the cute girl from the "Weather Gnomes" and color her with markers in the same colors of the rainbow background.  For the background I sponged the oxide inks in rainbow order to the card base and after that I added lots of water for the colors to move.  When that was dry I sprinkled more water for a more fun effect.  I die cut a cloud and glue the cute painting gnome, as embellishments I used Nuvo drops!
