Birthday Invites | Craftin Desert Divas

Hello Friends!  Today I am sharing with you McKinley’s Birthday Invites.  We are taking her and a couple friends to the swimming pool.  So we are going with a Luau theme.  Thankfully, I had these cute stamps from CDD to use!  This is Island Paradise.  Love it!!

I stamped the face image in white on craft for a nice background.  Then I added a nice border with the Fancy Frames dies. 


These were SUPER simple, which is what I love when making multiples of cards.

Back to School Cutie | Craftin’ Desert Divas.

I don’t want to share this, but school is coming!!  UGH! 

We did get all of our supplies yesterday so we are prepared.  Sports Physicals this week and then a couple more free loafing days left. 


Mojo MOnday CDD Image

I wanted to play with the Mojo Monday post this week, and wanted to use up this image too.  This is the super cute School Desk Girl image.  Pairing her with the Back to School papers and Red, White and Blue sprinkles worked well. 

I wanted to use the Fancy Frame dies but it was a bit wider than I needed.  So I shrunk it by just running the side edge of the die through my Big Shot.  Worked perfectly!


Love how it all came together! 

The layout and sketch came from the Mojo Monday Sketch this week.

Thanks for joining me again today! 

Fun Stampers Journey Stamps

Hey you there!!  How are you all? 

We are all enjoying some lazy summer days.  We have this brief window of summer where NOTHING is planned!  Whew!  Perfect to get us all feeling better!


So, in my looking online I stumbled across this stamp company called, Fun Stampers Journey.  They are a direct sales company and have some AMAZING stuff!  So I picked up a couple of things and the amazing Janice Whiting sent me a free lil set too!  Awe!

So I am sharing all that with you guys today – enjoy!!

Rainbow Fish

Hello there!! 

How is your week going?  We are tackling the To Do list with cleaning out closets today!  Yuck!!  But good way to spend the HOT day!!

Today I have a fun card.  Of course, when I saw the Rainbow Challenge at the Lawnscaping Blog, I was on board asap!!

Lawn Fawn Rainbow Card

I decided to go with some rainbow fish!  I stamped and colored them all pretty.  I even added some Wink of Stella. 

I pulled apart the sentiment from this set, Fintastic Friends and paired it with the sentiment from Loveable Legends.  How fun was this!!


I also wanted to play with the Can You Case it Challenge.  It was a sketch, which I tried to use the fish rather than circles.  And it’s for birthdays. 




Thanks for stopping in.  We are off to muck out some bedrooms now!  Enjoy your day!

CTMH Christmas In July Swap

Hey there!

I recently joined a swap on the CTMH Bulliten Board that was Christmas in July themed.  I pulled out my Woodland Romance set to start with and my Cricut Artistry cart to die cut all the papers. Christmas in July Swap CTMH

These were fun to create and I’m excited to see what I get back in return.   I will keep you posted.

You’re A Cut Above

Hi again!!  Another birthday card.  This time, it’s for my sister in law.  She loves to sew, so I knew this set from Stampin Up! would be perfect.  Retro Sketch Challenge

I stamped the “cut” lines across the top and bottom before I stamped the sentiment and scissors.  I pulled the colors from this week’s Global Design Project  and found some older DSP to add in for the black.  I also thought it would work well with the sketch over at Retro Sketches.  

I finished it off with some sequins and it’s ready to go.  It’s very simple, but I know she will love it!


I have even cleaned off my craft table of PAPER supplies and sewed her a couple cute pot holders! 


Ham it Up On Your Birthday

Hey you!!  Thanks for the visit today!

I am working on a few more birthday cards for my stash today and wanted to share this one with you!  I shared how I had stamped out all these cute lil piggies, so I picked one up to play with today! Ham It Up Color Challenge

I pulled some fun patterened paper from my Lawn Fawn paper pad, and die cut some circles.  The colors are coming from a new challenge I found, Can You Case It.  The colors were pinks, blue and nuetrals.  How fun is that combo!

Beachy Linky Party CDD
I wanted to use this sentiment as soon as I saw it on the blog!  I work with Middle School-ers, and I live with teenagers.  So I am extremely UN-HIP and say things like Awesome Sauce all the time!   That's how I roll.   <----  See? 
 Anyway, I colored this lil boy with Copics and fussy cut him out.  I wanted to make a shaker card, so I made this one 5.5" by 5.5".  The papers are from the Doodlebug Anchors Aweigh pad.  I love all the words on it, they are perfect for this. 
I used our Stitched Scallops dies to create the waves and popped the lil boy up on them.  This is a super fun card!!
Thank you for checking in today!  Make sure you play along with us!!
