Bumblebee Note Cards

Hello friends!  Happy hump day!! I love Wednesdays! It is a day that I get a few hours to craft! Today I have a couple shaped cards I made that I am also sharing on the CDD blog.


I made a pair of hexagon shaped cards with a bumble theme. I embossed them both with a honeycomb embossing folder. The first card features the adorable bees from the Sending Love stamp set. I stamped the "thanks" sentiment from the Short & Sweet Tags set inside the flutter heart. I also used the stitched oval die from the CDD Banner dies.


For the second card I used this cutie pie bee and a sentiment from the Just Bugcause stamps. I glittered up the wings and finally added some bows I made with some lovely crinkle ribbon from Karen at the Little Scrap Pieces blog . Did I tell you how much I love these bees? 



Here are the stamps and dies that I used and you can find them at the Craftin Desert Diva's shop!!

Mother's Day Linky Party at CDD

Hi there crafty friends! It is time for another challenge and we would love for you to join us! This Linky Party theme is to make a...Mother's Day project!!



Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi weekly linky party over at Craftin Desert Divas. We hope you will share your projects with us! And don't forget about the prizes! Every linky party will have a Winner and a Top 3.....the more times you link up, the more chances you will have to win! 

Our sponsors are:

ONE STAMP SET

$25 GIFT CARD (REGULAR PRICED ITEMS)

Here is what I made...


I made a shaker card! For this card I wanted to use the new scissor shaped Cut It Up sequins and so I thought of doing a sewing themed card. The floral double sided paper was from my stash. I stamped the edges of this layer with the zig zag stitch stamp from the Sew Raggedy stamp set. For the shaker I made a pouch with acetate so that I could adhere it to the side of the card. 


The scissors is a cut from the Cricut Nate's ABC's cartridge. The sentiment if from the CDD Just for Mom stamp set. I stamped it on half an oval from the CDD Banner Dies.


For the inside of the card I stamped Happy Mother's Day from the Happy Celebrations stamp set. I also stamped a sentiment from Sew Raggedy on the little heart. I added a couple tiny scissors and I was done.


Here are pics of the supplies I used. You can find them at

Music Shaker Card with CDD Pitch Perfect Sequins

Hello friends! Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am! (Phew! It has been a busy week!) I have some exciting news! Craftin Desert Diva's has added some new sequins in the shop!!That's right! I just can't tell you enough how much I LOVE these shaped sequins. I've been on a shaker card kick lately and these are so perfect for adding excitement and fun to my cards! Here is what I made with the new sequins....



I designed a shaker card and used the new Pitch Perfect music note sequins.  I teach music so they are a must have for me! I decided to do some more water coloring for the background.  First I designed the top layer with the treble clef and notes. I painted some rainbows for the window. I added a lavender layer and ribbon.


I really tried to do a clean and simple look but it seemed too boring, lol! So I added some paint splatter to livin it up a bit. I used these two sentiment stamps from the CDD Say It Big stamp set.


And finally I added a few sequins and music notes...


I love how these shakers look. I guess I am not a CAS kinda gal, lol! But at least I've been expanding my crafting style and actually making projects without cute animals, lol! 

Here are the new sequins and there is also a special deal at the CDD Shop available starting today!! 


This is a pic of the stamp set I used:

I hope you liked my project!

Have a blessed day!!

Today we are showcasing the Just Bugcause Stamps and Dies!

Here are my projects that I've created for you...



First I have a card I made using the new CDD Banner Dies and this cutie pie snail and flower stamp. The papers are from K & Company. I used a flower embossing folder that came with my Cuttlebug to add some dimension. I used eyelets and added some gauzy ribbon and some Skittles.


I thought this sentiment describes me sometimes when it comes to finishing the many projects I want to make... It is perfect for when I'm late getting my cards out, lol!


My next project is a little tag I made using this bee! I used the CDD small banner die and just added this scallop circle with the bee stamped on it. 


This was so easy and I hope to get more done because I rarely have tags ready for my gifts. And the small banner die makes it super quick! I did use a Fiskars texture plate to emboss the hexagons. The ribbon and burlap bow was in my stash.  I hand cut the tiny banner and stamped it with this cute sentiment.  



Be sure to join us tomorrow for another great new stamp set sneak peek.
