More Fun Samples from May New Release!

Hi, everyone!  Today I would like to share two more samples created with the May new releases from Divinity Designs LLC.

My first card gave me the giggles when it was finished!  It features the Dinosaur Stamp/Die Duos set, along with the Geometric Paper Pad and the following dies: Bethlehem (trees), Slimline Tree and Hill Silhouettes, Floating Frame Front, Matting Rectangle, A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer, and Clouds and Raindrops (sponged clouds). The frame and dino's were popped up with Foam Mounting Tape for dimension and Blending Brushes were used for most of the coloring. (My secret for coloring is to use a clear glaze pen on all of the items which will stay white, then colored the dino's with blending brushes in different yellow and green tones.  Since I don't have Copics, this method is my fave way to get a smooth look.)

I had fun creating my second card as well.  I began with Blending Brushes and ink on a slimline sized panel to create the water and sunset, then used the Pierced Waves Background Die twice in order to create enough for the three sections. The trees were cut with the Bethlehem Dies, the "sandy dune" was cut with the Slimline Tree and Hill Silhouettes Dies, and the sentiment was stamped and cut with the All Occasions Stamp/Die Duos set.  The Slimline Pierced Large Windows Frame was popped up with Foam Mounting Tape over the scene. Other dies used are the Slimline Pierced Rectangles and Slimline Card Base.

Happy 30th Anniversary!

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Karen aka ksenzak1....congrats, Karen!!  I chose this adorable cas card for inspiration today.  Tomorrow is Anniversary number 30 for hubby and I, so I created this card for him using the 'Wish You Were Hare' set by My Favorite Things.  He knows how busy I am since I work full time plus design for Divinity Designs, so he doesn't want me to spend a lot of time on cards for him. This set was perfect for a one layer card.  The image was stamped with Stazon Jet Black; the ears and nose were colored with a pink marker; a clear glaze pen coated the pink plus any of the spaces I wanted to stay white; lastly, the scene and image were colored with blending brushes and sponges using masking, reverse masking, and stenciling.  Cutting several masks took a little while, but I love how it turned out.  Since I don't have Copics, this is my fave way to color to achieve a smooth look.  I used a journaling pen to add the 30 to the heart.  The colors I used in my card are from the MFT Color Challenge, so I will be submitting to this as well.

Divinity Designs LLC May New Release!

Hi, everyone!  Welcome to the Divinity Designs LLC May New Release party!!!  To see the full release plus some AMAZING designer samples, please click HERE.  Also, if you follow DD on Instagram, there is an Instagram Hop today....with prizes!!

Here are the new items used in my three samples for today:

My first card features the Pierced Waves Background Die, Bold Blessings Stamp/Die Duo set, Pierced Vintage Labels 2 Dies, along with the Matting Rectangle, A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies, Foam Mounting Tape, and Gemstones. The pattern in the background die reminded me of a peacock, so I found some pretty embroidery thread and cardstock which coordinated with it.  It took several days to do the stitching but I love how it turned out.  The purple layers are metallic so this looks really cool in the real!!  For the sentiment, I cut an extra layer with back as a shadow layer for more dimension.

My second card is a shaker card, featuring the adorable Dinosaurs Stamp/Die Duo set, Slimline Pierced Large Windows Die, along with the Slimline Pierced Rectangles Dies, Slimline Card Base, a fun pattern from the Beautiful Beaches Slimline Paper Pad, Foam Mounting Tape, and Sequins.
Last but not least, I created this fun fancy fold design with the All Occasion Stamp/Die Duo set, Pierced Vintage Labels 2 Dies, along with the Accordion Fold with Layers DiesVintage Labels 2 Dies, Bethlehem Dies (palm trees), Belly Band Dies, Park Silhouettes Dies (couple), Cowboy and Cactus Silhouettes Dies (bird), and two pieces of the same sunset pattern from the Sunset Skies Slimline Paper Pad. For the belly band design, the palm trees were cut from the black panel to show the sunset pattern beneath, then the trees were adhered to the scene on the card panel.

Hug A Cactus

Hi, everyone!  This week's Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to find inspiration from Party Swizzle.  When I saw these super cute wine charms, I thought of this punny 'Let's Stick Together' stamp set from My Favorite Things.  My brother and I are known for our bear hugs, so I made this card for him. The image was stamped directly onto the kraft cardstock and colored with markers.  I used the pointillism technique for the ground.  The edges of the card base were sponged for a little more depth.

Simple Bouquet 'Perfect Birthday'

Hi, everyone!  This week's Clean and Simple Challenge theme over at Splitcoast is 'Blooms'......I am obsessed with this 'Blessings of Home' bundle from Stampin Up so I made another card with the similar colors as my last.  The image was stamped onto the card base with Versamark but the camera did not capture it well.  The image was then stamped with Stazon Jet Black onto watercolor paper and colored with an aquapainter.  The sentiment was cut out with the Sentiment Strips 2 Dies from Divinity Designs LLC and popped up with Foam Mounting Tape.

Happy Wedding Day Gatefold

Hi, everyone!  I am in love with this month's release from Divinity Designs LLC!!  The floral patterns from the new 'Wedding Flowers' Paper Pad are sooooo gorgeous!!  I used my favorite pattern for this gatefold design.  This front view shows the card closed and wrapped with the Belly Band Dies, decorated with the Mr. and Mrs. with Layers Dies, Spiral Sphere Die, Fancy Flourish Die.  The card base and layers were cut out with the Gatefold Card with Layers Dies and the tiny hearts are from the Clouds and Raindrops Dies.

This is the inside view......more of the delish designer paper from the 'Wedding Flowers' Paper Pad, plus I added a gift card holder which was cut with the 'Gift Card Pockets and Layers' Dies; a sentiment from the 'Lovebirds' stamp set was added to the gift card layer.  More tiny hearts were added along with a flower and leaves cut from the Bitty Blossoms Dies.

All-Star Wrestling Card

Hi, everyone!  This week's Ways To Use It Challenge theme over at Splitcoast is 'All Stars'.  My card today was created for a young man who is excelling on his high school wrestling team; the jaguar is the school mascot and his wrestling uniform is red and white.  I printed out the jaguar image from the school's website, fussy cut the pieces, temporarily adhered them to red cardstock, then cut out the individual pieces which were then adhered to the white panel. The background panel was embossed with a tiny star embossing folder.  The dies I used are from Divinity Designs LLC: Sparkling Stars, Pierced Squares, A2 Thin Pierced Frame, A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer, and Pierced Rectangles (on the inside).  The jaguar and tiny stars were coated with a clear glaze pen, so the photo makes them look darker. The frame and panels were popped up with Foam Mounting Tape. On the inside is a scripture verse from the 'Teamwork' stamp set which reads, 'Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.' 1 Cor 10:31.

Rustic Wooded Birthday x 3

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Gayle aka fostergaylej....congrats, Gayle!!  This awesome scenic card reminded me of the 'Reflections' set by The Greetery which I picked up during the Black Friday sales last fall but had not used yet.  Using the MISTI, I duplicated this scene on three different background panels.  I used a piece of scratch paper to make sure each layer stamp was lined up correctly, then inserted each of the good panels and made three cards easily by doing this!! One scene was stamped on a wood-grain pattern from the 'Weathered Wood' Paper Collection by Divinity Designs LLC, one scene was stamped onto white cardstock (overstamped with the Wood Background Stamp by Divinity Designs LLC), and one was stamped onto kraft cardstock (overstamped with the Wood Background as well).  The panels were cut out with the Pierced Rectangles, matted with the Matting Rectangle and adhered to cards cut with the A2 Portrait Card Base with Layer Dies (all dies from Divinity Designs LLC.)

Hello, My Friend!

Hi, everyone!  Today's Friday Free4All Challenge over at Splitcoast is to make a card for one of your crafty friends....this is for my friend, Sandy, who is very creative but does not do anything online.  I have used the 'Blossoms in Bloom' set from Stampin Up.  This set has intricate layering dies, but I tend to grab it for quick, CAS cards instead. I used the MISTI for the large flower stamp to make sure that they all stamped well.  The stamp was inked with a pad, then the centers sponged with a darker color.  Once the card was removed from the MISTI, the yellow centers and green leaves were stamped.  Gems were added for a finishing touch.

Minnie Mouse Birthday

Hi, everyone!  This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Cindy H....congrats, Cindy!!  When I saw this adorable card, it reminded me that I had not used this Minnie pre-made die-cut I bought at a scrapbooking booth last year at a stamp show.  Instead of red and yellow like Cindy's card, I coordinated the colors with the Minnie die-cut.  I used the following items from Divinity Designs LLC to create the card: 'Princess' stamp set (retired), A2 Thin Pierced Frame Die, Layering Hearts Dies, Clouds and Raindrops Dies (tiny hearts and clouds), Grass Hill Die, Blending Brushes, and Foam Mounting Tape. A yellow bow tied with the Bow Easy was the finishing touch.
