Another Year Just Flew By - Birds Of A Feather

Hello there dear friends..

Today is Day 2 of Craftin Desert Divas August Release.  It's a special day because it's also my birthday :) and one of my crafty friend birthday as well. So...

My card/project today featuring Birds Of A Feather stamp.  I made this espcially for my sweet crafty friend who is sharing the same bithday as me.  Lisa R Bzibziak... this is on the way to you.  Have a Wonderful Birthday!

Here is what I made for her

I love how it turned out.  There are so many birds and nature elements in this Birds Of A Feather stamp set.   This Box dies is amazing and it's so easy to put all together and together with Outdoor Landscape 2 dies the sky is the limit.  I used the birch trees as well as the grass border dies from Outdoor Landscape 2 dies to decorate the outside panels as well as to attach the branches for the birds to stand on.


I colored all the images with copic markers then I couldn't find any pattern paper that I like to match my card theme for the 4 flaps so I decided to do my DIY pattern paper.


This is how it looked like after I cut the panel with one of the dies that included in the Box dies.  I love how it turned out.

Here is the closer look at all the images again


I hope you enjoy all my projects for Craftin Desert Divas August Release and Thank you so very much for taking take to take a look.  Have a Beautiful day!

Hugs

Ok I think I covered the esential infomation and here are the fun part :)  I made a couple of projects and I'll share with you 2 cards today.

Project 1 :  Twinkle Toes stamp and 

It's impossible for me not to do any project with this adorable piggie from Twinkle Toes stamp.  It's a love at first sight *lol*   Pig loves mud we all know that so I decided to make her the most happy pig on earth to dance in her tutu and played in the mud puddle :) 


I took my time to color her in with Faber Castell Polychromos colorpencils.  Building up layers upon layers until I was happy with it.  I used the pond image from Build A Scene 2 stamp to create the mud puddle as well as the buttlefly and dragon fly are also from Build A Scene 2 stamp.

I cut the frame from white card stock using Inside Scalloped Rectangle dies and colored it with blue/green copic markers then used no. 0 colorless blender to make the dots effect.  I then dropped Nuvo Crystal Drop Bubblegum Blush to accent my card.

Project 2 : Get Wild stamp

I made this one layer card using the adorable gorilla and the little bird images from Get Wild stamp.  I stamped them at the middle of my panel and began to create my scene.  I hand drawn the trees and leaves and I colored all the images and the whole scene with Faber Castell Polychromos colorpencils as well.


I also used the Crazy Stitched Frame dies to give decorative edges on my panel and then dropped Nuvo Crystal Drop Caribbean Ocean here and there.

I hope you like both of them and I have one more box card to share with you tomorrow featuring Birds Of A Feather stamp.  See you soon & Thank you.

Hugs,
Jan

Here is what I made for Aloha mini stamp

I created this one layer card scene using the adorable Aloha Troll from Aloha mini stamp together with the waterfall rock images from Build A Scene 2 stamp. 

Here is how I planned and prepared my card design 

I colored all the images including the background scene with copic markers. :) I know I refilled my blue and green markers along the way. *lol*


Here are the closer look

I used Crazy Stitched Frame dies to create my decorative edge and also accent my card with Novo Jewel Drop Pale Periwinkle.

Here is the card that I made with Wet Feet mini stamp
This card came together quite easily I just stamped the adorable flamingo from Wet Feet mini stamp toward the bottom left of my card panel.  


I torn the printer paper at slightly curve shaped and used it as a mask to do ink blending for the ocean.  I used Distress Oxide Inks in broken china and cracked pistachio.  For the sand and the flamigo itself I colored with copic markers.  For the sky, I used Distress Oxide Inks in spiced marmalade and worn lipstick with ink dusters to get the rough texture for the sky.

Here is the closer look 

I used white gel pen to give some wave texture where the sand meet the sea.  I then cut my panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies and dropped Nuvo Crystal Drop Morning Dew here and there.

I  hope you like both of them and Thank you so much for stick with me thru out the release days.  Appreciate it!  Have a wonderful day

Hugs,
Jan

Here is what I have for you.

I had a blast creating this card with load of leaves coloring.   I believe I used all of the leaves images and some plumeria flowers from Birds Of A Feather stamp.  I did alot of masking on those leaves and flowers to create the border scene.  


After I colored them with copic markers. I cut my leaves border panel with Crazy Stitched Frame dies and fussy cut the inner frame leaving a little bit of white border around.

On another white card stock, I estimated the position that I want the bird and the branch to be and stamped them floating on the panel.  I did used my homemade cloud stencils with very light blue ink.

Here is the closer look

I popped the whole front pannel up with form tape to give some dimensions.  Lastly I dropped Nuvo Jewel  Drop Strawberry Coulis here and there.  And it's done!

I love how it turned out and Thank you so much for stopping by and I wish you all a Wonderful day!

Hugs,
Jan

Today we are shocasing "Get Wild" stamp set

***Special for this release***

All new release product will be in the CDD Shop on 8/9/17 at Noon EST.

This is what I made for you

I played along with this Get Wild stamp set and couldn't help to pair it with Dino Dig stamp from our previous previous release.  I wanted to created a see-thru box using our newest Box dies setting scene for adventure above the ground and under the groud. :) 


Here is the above ground front view.  I colored all the images with copic markers and fussy cut them out.  I also used Flag Banner dies for the sentiment, Outdoor Landscape 2 dies for the grass and decorated the box flaps with doodlebug Hello Sunshine paper pad.


Here is the underground front view, I white heat embossed the dinosour skeleton onto heat resistant acetate sheet.  The die that I used to cut the window is also included in the Box dies for window as well as for layer decoration paper panels.

Since it's a see-thru box so I did decorate the inner panel with the dirt die from Garden Border dies as well as the small skeleton, egg and bone from Dino Dig stamp and tucked them inside.



And here is the top view with the adorable adventure safari girl, rhino and ox images from Get Wild stamp.  The flowers are included in the Box dies as well...

I hope you like my box card and please come back for tomorrow for another project for Craftin Desert Divas August Release Day 5.  Thank  you for stopping by.

Hugs,
Jan
