Kitty In the Window

Hello friends!! Happy weekend! I am down to the crunch at work with only one more week of classes and shows and then I am off for the summer! Woo-hoo! I have so much crafty fun planned for myself I can hardly wait! Today I have a card I made for my Mother-in-law to share today.

I made this adorable window card. This sentiment from the Craftin Desert Diva's Just For Mom set is perfect. It can be used for any occasion you want to make a card for that special Mom!  My MIL loves cats and she used to have one that was white and fluffy like this. The cat is from the Cricut Pet Shop cartridge. I also used my Cricut Freshly Picked cartridge for the flowerpot and flowers.

I embossed the background using a Darice brick folder. I also water colored the background with Distress inks.  The window is a Spellbinders die. Of course I had to add my favorite butterfly sequins from the CDD shop.

Here are the CDD products I used:

Fluttering by to say...

Hello everyone!! Today I am on the Craftin Desert Diva's blog on a
Throwback Thursday to share with you a project I made using an 
older CDD stamp set.

 I have a birthday card I made using the sentiments from the
  CDD Lil Bit Buggie  and one of my favorite's, Simply Said.

I made this pop out butterfly card. 

The pop-out butterfly was designed by Shirley at Shirley's Cards. 
I altered the file in DS just a bit to make this an A6 sized card. The sentiment
 goes wonderfully and I embellished with the Butterfly Wishes sequins 
and some pearls.  I then made a bow with some pink shimmery ribbon. 

 The pink designer paper is from We R Memory Keepers Tiffany's pad.
The inside also has a pop-out and I stamped Happy Birthday from the Simply Said set.

Here are the CDD products I used and you can find these and much more 
at the CDD Shop HERE!

Thank you so much for hopping by!  

Have a blessed day!!

easy with the new CDD The Skies The Limit stamps and dies.

Here is what I've created for you today...

I made some tags using the new Tag Essential Dies along with The Sky Is the Limit stamps and dies! When I make tags they have to be simple and these were certainly just that! I started by cutting out the larger tag and cloud, and the sun stitched die using some cute papers from DCWV. I stamped the little faces on their own circles and popped them up. I cut the large cloud in half and glued each side under the sun. The sentiment is from the CDD Simply Said set. I added ribbon and I was done! So easy!


My next project is a card using the Little Super Star set...

First I stamped my own background paper with the "super" stamp and the stars
 from the Witch Crossing set. I am really getting into making my own paper!  
Shhh, don't tell my hubby cause I have SO MUCH PAPER it is taking over
 my room, lol! But hey, I'm using paper to make paper right?!  I cut out 
her bow and boots using the Doodlebug Patriotic Picnic  paper that is 
now available at the CDD Shop! The medallion is from the TCBJ freebie 
and the stitched star die is from the CDD Banner Dies. The little banner is 
from the Cricut Small Talk Frames and Tags. 

My last card is using the Garden Cuties set!

All the cuts are from DS. The adorable papers are from the DCWV Violet Leaf pad. I used the CDD Mini Blooms Sequins to add a little sparkle as well as a butterfly from the CDD Butterfly Wishes Sequins. I added a little wink of stella to give her a little shimmer on her leaves and bow.

Today we are showcasing a new stamp set called Garden Cuties and 
a Stamp & Die Set called The Sky Is The Limit

Using Garden Cuties I made a little card using this sentiment and adorable
 little Sweet Pea! For the background I used the CDD Banner Dies.

I added these little CDD Mini Blooms Sequins and topped it off with a ribbon. 
To finish it up I added this beautiful butterfly sequin from the
  CDD Butterfly Wishes Sequins pack.

For my second project using The Sky Is The Limit I made a shaker card.

I just love these stitched cloud dies!! You will probably recognize these two cuties from the CDD Fur-ever Friends set. I put them under this new umbrella stamp that I paper pieced.

These two cuties go perfect with this sweet new sentiment. I also added these
 tiny hearts from the CDD True Love Sequins.
