CDD July New Release Wrap Up – Day 1

Today is the first day of the Craftin Desert Divas New Release Wrap Up. For my first wrap up card, I used the adorable and brand new “Sunny Smiles” Stamp Set and “Ocean Border Dies”. I am loving that the stamp & die sets being released all have a coordinating theme and can be combined with one another for even more possibilities!

For the first step in making my card, I stamped and colored all of the images in the Sunny Smiles Stamp Set. Here is a video sharing how I colored in all of my images. This is something new I am trying on my channel, videos that are strictly coloring with only background music. Here’s a peek at the first one!

After coloring the images, I fussy cut each one with a small white border and started putting together scene with the stamps and die cuts. I did use the Stitched in Circles die set to make a circular scene. I also used the Fancy Frame die set to create some layering. Using Distress Inks and my mini ink blending tool and a bit of water droplets I created a very vibrant background with some bleach spots.

Finished Card 1.1 (2)
On the inside of the card, I used the little alligator from the Sunny Smiles stamp set, along with the wave dies from the Ocean Border Dies to create a small scene along the bottom of the card base. Then I adhered the “Sending You Sunny Smiles” sentiment, which was stamped onto a flag banner die cut, in the top center with double sided adhesive!
