Divinity Designs LLC April Mid-Month Release

Hi, everyone!  This month at Divinity Designs LLC there is triple goodness!!!  On the first was the April New Release, today is a new Mid-Month Release,  and those of you who have been waiting for the quarterly Blessings Box, it's coming soon as well and oh my, your socks will be knocked off!!!!  To see the entire new Mid-Month Release plus some awesome designer samples, please click HERE.

The new items featured in my three samples for today are below; for previously released items, please click the links in the descriptions (since I haven't figured out the new Blogger format yet!)


My first card, made for a co-worker to give to his wife, features the new Mini Slimline Scalloped Rectangles Dies, the Mini Slimline Rectangles Dies, the Mini Slimline Layering Rectangles Dies, the Mini Slimline Card Base, Large Numbers Dies, Letter Board Dies, Sentiment Strips 2, the Whimsical Wildflowers Paper Collection, Butterfly and Bugs Stamp/Die Duos, and the Celebration stamp set.  No fancy techniques here, mostly die cutting and layering with X-press It Double Sided Foam Tape.

I had a blast creating my second card, which features the 'I Am' stamp set, Mini Slimline Leaf Background Die, Mini Slimline Scalloped Rectangles, Mini Slimline Card Base, Scalloped Ovals, Ovals, Bitty Blossoms, X-Press It Double Sided Foam Tape, and Crystal Rhinestones.  The leaf background was cut from an alcohol ink panel from my stash; since it had copper tones within it, I chose copper embossing powder for the scripture and copper cardstock.  X-Press It Double Sided Foam Tape was used on the backside of the die cut to give extra dimension.
My third card features the following: Mini Slimline Scalloped Rectangles Dies, Mini Slimline Rectangles Dies, Mini Slimline Card BaseThank You with Layers Dies, Gift Card Pockets and Layers Dies, a floral pattern from the Bold Blooms Paper Pad, and Sparkling White Sequins for embellishments.  The Thank You sentiments were popped up with X-Press It Double Sided Foam Tape. This sample shows that you can add anything to the pockets....gift cards are not the only option!

Divinity Designs LLC April New Release

Hi, everyone!  Happy Spring!! Welcome to the April New Release party for Divinity Designs LLC!!  This month's release includes a fun variety of stamps, dies, and an awesome new paper pad too.....see the entire new release plus some amazing designer samples HERE!

Below are the new products used in my samples for today.  For the 'previously released' items, please click the links in each paragraph.


My first card was created for one of my nieces who LOVES to fish.  I paired the 'Great Catch' Stamp/Die Duos set with the new Gift Card Pockets and Layers Dies and the fun new Happy Birthday with Layers Dies set.  The background panel was created with aqua ink, using the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique; once dry, it was cut out with the Pierced Rectangles Dies, matted with the Matting Rectangle, and layered onto the card base cut with the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies. The bluegill was stamped with Stazon Jet Black onto watercolor paper, then water-colored.  Sequins were added to mimic air bubbles and baker's twine was used since I couldn't locate my fishing line. (And yes, I know I forgot to dot the 'I' but the card is already long gone!)

For my next card, I paired up the 'I Am' stamp set with the new 'Bold Blooms' Paper Pad, along with the Quilted Background Die, Bitty Blossoms Dies, Bitty Borders Dies, Double Stitched Circles Dies, Circles Dies, Matting Rectangle Die, A2 Landscape Card Base with Layer Dies, and sequins for the flower center and a bit of embellishing.

My third card is for my in-laws who check on our house while we are on vacation each year.  We like to leave them cards on the kitchen counter as a surprise.  Once they head home, they can stop at Dairy Queen for a treat!!!  For the card, I used the Gift Card Pockets and Layers Dies, the new Thank You With Layers Dies, along with the images from 'What's the Scoop?', designer papers from the Birthday Brights Paper Pad and the following dies: the sprinkles from the 'Beverage Cup' Dies, Pierced Ovals, Ovals, Pierced Rectangles, Matting Rectangle, and the A2 Landscape Card Base with Layer.
My last card is a birthday card for my boss.....with lots of room for everyone at work to sign!  Here are all of the goodies used to create all five sections of the scene:  Slimline Happy Birthday and Layers Dies, Slimline Z Fold Card with Layers Dies, 'Tickled Pink' Stamp/Die Duos, Grass Border Die, and the Clouds and Raindrops Dies (for sponging the clouds).
This is a view of the opened card. The back two panels are decorated in the same manner.

Here are the new products featured in my three samples for today:

My first card features the following dies: Quatrefoil Background, Cross Layering Combo, Inspiration Words, Fancy Circles, Pierced Circles (to cut out the center of the Fancy Circle), Ornate Ovals, Scalloped Rectangles, and A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer.  All of the layers were cut from either Ivory Shimmer or Light Peach Shimmer cardstock....the photo does not capture how pearly and delish the papers are!!  The Quatrefoil Background was cut and embossed, then with the pieces still in the die, a sticker panel (created with a Xyron sticker maker) was pressed onto the backside of the die in order to lift all of the pieces out at once.  For the Cross Layering Combo Dies, each layer was alternated with the peach and ivory cardstock.

My second card is a slimline design created with the following dies: Slimline Quatrefoil Background, Slimline Scalloped Rectangles, Slimline Layering Rectangles, Slimline Grasses, Slimline Card Base, Large Letters, I Love You.  The letters were cut from the Spring Flowers 2019 Paper Collection and the butterflies are from the Butterfly and Bugs Stamp/Die Duos set. There was nothing difficult about this card....just simple die cutting and layering.

My third sample features the 'Be Still' stamp set, Easter Card Collection 2016 Paper Pad and the following custom dies: Cross Layering Combo, Quatrefoil Background, Mini Tags, Matting Rectangle, A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer. The scripture verse from 'Be Still' was gold embossed onto vellum and adhered to a pattern from the Easter Card Collection 2016 Paper Pad then cut out with the largest cross die from the Cross Layering Combo

You Color My World

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Dawn aka dawnmercedes.....congrats, Dawn!!  I was inspired by this creative card.....I loved the fun colors and the strips reminded me of a rainbow.  For my card, I stuck with the same colors but created a rainbow and clouds.  The rainbow strips and clouds are from the Slimline Rainbow and Clouds Dies.  The tiny hearts were cut with the Clouds and Raindrops Dies.  The sentiment is from Rainbow of Hope and was cut and matted with the Sentiment Strips 2 Dies. The largest of the Pierced Frames Dies was cut from red cardstock and popped with foam tape over the pattern paper from the Birthday Bash Paper Collection.  The card base was cut with the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies. (All items used are from Divinity Designs LLC.) 

Thanks for stopping by today!

Divinity Designs LLC February New Releases!

Hi, everyone!  Wow, January flew by and now it's time for another new release from Divinity Designs LLC!  To see the entire new release plus all of the amazing designer samples, please visit the Divinity Designs LLC Blog or find them on social media.

Here are the new products I have featured in my three project for today:

My first card is a slimline design using the new Slimline Rainbow and Clouds Dies set, along with the 'Rainbow of Hope' stamp set, Neighborhood Border Die, Slimline Scalloped Rectangles Dies, Slimline Rectangles Dies, Slimline Card Base, and Sentiment Strips 2 Dies.  The rainbow was cut from white cardstock, the center strips removed from the rainbow, the remaining frame was colored with markers, then turned into a shaker by adding a layer of acetate and tiny cut foam tape strips to pop it up.  All of the sequins are from Divinity Designs LLC as well.....find these and more HERE.  Layered on top of the rainbow is the neighborhood die, which I carefully lined up and cut twice since it is A2 sized. (The trick is to leave the end of the die outside of the cutting plate so you can hand trim carefully line up the die again to continue the scene with the next cut. I then cut the neighborhood from white and hand trimmed the houses to adhere to the green panel.

For my next card, I have used the fun 'Peek-A-Boo with Layers' Dies set, along with the Wedding Wishes Paper Pad, tiny hearts from the 'Clouds and Raindrops' Dies, Bitty Borders Dies, and the 'Long Lasting Love' stamp set. The view from the front of the card shows the greeting which I created with three stamps from the set; open the card to see the hidden panel magically appear! (Next photo)
The wedding cake image slides into place when the card is opened.  Make sure you watch Lisa's video to see how easy this card is to make.  There are instructions printed within the die packaging as well.
My third card features the 'Rainbow of Hope' set, A2 Rainbow and Clouds Dies, along with the Pierced Rectangles Dies, A2 Landscape Card Base with Layer Die, and Crystal Rhinestones.  The rainbow was cut from white cardstock, then adhered to another white panel to keep all of the pieces together.  After water-coloring the rainbow, it was popped up with foam tape,  The sentiment was white embossed onto the blue background then the crystal 'raindrops' and baker's twine were added.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  It's greatly appreciated!!

Tropical Sunset

 

Hi, everyone! This week's Sketch Challenge 838 over at Splitcoast will be my last one on the sketch team for this term.  It was a blast creating samples each week but was a big time commitment since I also work full time.  Since the sketch was slimline sized, I chose to use goodies from Divinity Designs LLC to create this card for my honey.  Since it is hard to guess when we might be able to go on a cruise vacation again, due to the pandemic, I created this tropical card for him.  He loves wearing Hawaiian shirts on vacation, so I chose this fun pineapple design from the 'Cool and Casual' Paper Pad; the dark green paper is from the 'Rustic Christmas' Slimline Paper Pad.  The image is from 'Bon Voyage', stamped with Stazon Jet Black, then sponged with yellow, orange and pink.  Here are the dies I used: I Love You, Pierced Circles, Circles, Slimline Card Base, and Slimline Rectangles.


Thanks for stopping by!
