Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party - "Back to School"

Happy Monday!
Today is the Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!! Welcome to our mid post for this weeks "Back to School" challenge.  Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along. 
This week we have some fabulous sponsors.

One stamp set

$10 code

Clearsnap gave each DT member some beautiful ink and Art daubers 

I just couldn't wait to ink up these daubers with this fabulous ink.....

I started with a stencil I created using a chevron pattern and I used the actual chevron cut out like a stamp. I used white colorbox ink and then embossed it. Once it dried I just used the daubers to add the rainbow of colors.

I used some great papers from DCWV and the CDD School zone stamp set and paper pieced the apple and worm and stamped the sentiment on the finished pattern. Lastly, I added some pretty Peppermint Stick Trendy Twine. I love how it turned out! Thank you Clearsnap for the fun products!!

Don't forget... if you purchased a set from CDD, please make a project and enter the challenge or join the Craftin Desert Divas Gallery and show us your creation!
Have a WONDERFUL day!

Die Cuttin Divas - Pinterest Inspired or Fellow Crafter Inspiration

Happy Tuesday!!

It's time for another Die Cuttin Divas Challenge. Today's challenge is to create a project that is inspired by pinterest or a fellow crafter. So I came across this fabulous project on pinterest. I loved the idea of a camera shaker card and just had to try it.  Debbie over at Craftin Chaos created the card that inspired me HERE. Now I knew I couldn't do this card justice by recreating it so I used the idea and then added my own details. Sometimes you just need to leave the original project as perfect as you found it :)

So here is my inspired project.
I just loved that shaker camera so I used an MCT die cut and with some careful adjustments I was able to make a shaker out of it just like Debbie's.

Instant photo Die - Lil Inker Designs
Paper - My Minds eye
Sentiment - Computer Generated

Thanks Debbie for allowing me to share you card!

Please pop over to Die Cuttin Divas Challenge and check out the DT and join us for the challenge! We would love to have you.

Craftin Desert Divas - Gotta Wear Shades Set

Hi CDD Fans!
It's my day to share a card over at Craftin Desert DivasI'm showcasing one of the newest stamp sets "Gotta Wear shades" How cute is this set??? So, over the last couple weeks I showcased the bear on a beach towel HERE and the bear floating on an inner tube HERE and today I'm showcasing "The bears in a pool"

Oh look at these cuties! 
After I stamped these adorable little bears, I used some copics and colored pencils to color them up. I matched them to some fab Echo park paper and  added some star fish for fun!

The sentiment is actually from the Summer Lovin set I thought it went great with this fun little card!
I hope you enjoyed my card and hope you stop by Craftin Desert Diva's Gallery for even more inspiration!
