Rainbow Inlaid Background

Hello Everyone!! I am so excited to be jumping into the second day of August New Release Sneak Peeks!!! Today the DT is sneaking two brand new stamps sets, Twinkle Toes and Live, Love, Plan, and also one brand new die set, Inside Scalloped Rectangle Dies. I have a few projects to share with you, the first using the brand new die set! Be sure to watch the video tutorial below to see exactly how I put this inlaid rainbow background and shaker card together!


For all the details on this card, be sure to watch the video tutorial above! Here’s a few photos to give you a closer look!

 Finished Card 4

This card was almost 100% die cutting, but the sentiment from the Weather Gnomes stamp set fit perfectly with this card! And because this card was almost all die cutting, the matching stitching of the CDD dies made this card so easy to pull together with all of the dies I used!!

Finished Card 7

For my second card today, I am using the brand new and super adorable “Live, Love, Plan” Stamp Set! It is perfect for your planners, card, and back to school!!! Not to mention, it’s TROLLS!!!! To put this card together, I first colored my image with alcohol markers and fussy cut her, but remember, Craftin Desert Divas does offer SVG cut files for all of their stamp sets!! I also colored in a little planner in the set and fussy cut it as well!!

Finished Card 1

For the background on this card I used my Distress Inks, mixed with white pigment ink to create a creamy color that I used to do some ink smooshing. I also added a few splatters for fun! The frame around my little troll girl is made from inlaying the dies from the Crazy Stitched Frame Die set into one another.

Finished Card 1.2

I wanted my little troll girl to appear as if she was day dreaming, so I pulled out the scene builders die set and die cut a cloud and three small circles (that are actually supposed to be spots on the mushroom). I ppped up all of my fussy cut images and die cuts with fun foam and double sided adhesive onto an A2 top folding white card base. Finally, I added the “Dream Bigger” sentiment, stamped on a flag banner, and added it to the bottom of the frame to finish off the card!

Finished Card 1.3

Be sure and head on over to the Craftin Desert Divas August Release Event on Facebook to check out the rest of the sneak peeks!!!
