CDD – July Monthly Challenge

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

   I’m sharing a pop-up card I’ve made for the CDD monthly challenge! This months theme is so cute that I just had to make another card. To play along, just use CDD products with the mood board inspiration, and then share it on social media. Be sure to tag Craftin’ Desert Divas with #cddmonthly for a chance to win! More information is available in the Craftin’ Desert Divas Gallery Facebook Group.

   For the front of my card, I used the hermit crabs from Craftin’ Desert Divas’s new Ocean Friends stamp set! The sentiment is from the new Mermaid Lagoon stamp set. I popped up the middle crab on some foam tape.

   For the inside, I used the Ocean Border dies to make two borders. For one, I just cut off the coral and seaweed. I colored these up using my copic airbrush set. To make the splatter, I used the brush end of the nib in the marker holder. I also made my own cuts to get it to be a pop-up. For the top of the back panel, I used Faded Jeans, Peacock Feathers, and Broken China Distress Oxide inks. For the bottom, I used the same technique with my copic airbrush system.

   Here, you can see the pop up from the side. I made it about a half inch deep because I wanted there to be a lot of depth in this part. Isn’t that little octopus using the hermit crab as a party hat adorable?!?!? I used the seahorses, seaweed, and seashell from Mermaid Lagoon to help complete the scene. I also used a starfish from Summer Vibin’.

   To make this little crab’s string actually show up, I just traced over it with a copic marker before putting it through my Scan N Cut.

   I had to bring some starfish in to finish off the setting. An ocean party isn’t complete without a few starfish. I used the starfish from the Mermaid Lagoon stamp set. I also used the sentiment from the Mermaid Lagoon stamp set. I thought it went perfectly with my card.

   I do hope you like my card and I also hope you join us over at the Craftin’ Desert Divas Gallery on Facebook and play along!



I’m sorry, but there are too many Copics to list! I’d be putting down over 100 marker numbers.

I will have to add a supply list when I return home on the 28th.

Molly Says Thank You

This is my second post for today! I know, right?!?!? Here’s the link to the first one. June Mood Board Card

   I wanted to share a card I made for the Tiddly Inks Challenge called “Make it a Rectangle”.

   I colored her up with Copics (colors listed below).

   I just love all of the characters that Christy draws, but I seriously LOVE the Molly’s! Plus, I needed a thank you card for my friend Christina, who gave me my new little puppies!!!


This is from the first night we brought them home. The one on the left is a little boy named Sherlock. The one on the right is a little girl named Lady. They are so sweet and precious!
