There are only 11 days left in the month of October!! That means you still have some time to enter a card of your own into the Craftin Desert Divas monthly social media challenge! It is so super easy to play along and the prizes are awesome!! If you are interested and want to take a closer look at the rules, you can head HERE to check them out! This month’s mood board is full of beautiful inspiration. Here’s a closer look!


For my card today, I did a window scene and filled it with tons of falling leaves, which I thought was just perfect for this month’s inspiration! Creating die cut scenes is one of my favorite ways to make cards, especially when I just don’t particularly feel like coloring. Die cut scenes can certainly pack a punch for your cards and you can choose to add some stamping or colored images to them, but for this card, I left it at just die cuts!

CDD Challenge 3

On this card, I used quite a few of the Craftin Desert Divas die sets. But because all of the CDD dies have the same signature stitching, I knew all of the stitching would coordinate perfectly! Here’s the die sets I used on my card today – Window Pane Die, Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies, Fall Border Dies, Scene Builder Dies, & Flag Banner Dies.

So after all of that die cutting, it was time to put everything together. I like to use a mixture of both liquid and paper adhesive, depending on the size of die cut and the size of what I’m adhering the die cut to. Also, a pair of tweezers and my Quickstik tool make putting together these types of scenes so much easier. Each leaf was a snap to put on with the help of my Quickstik tool, which you can now find in the CDD Shop!! I added a simple sentiment from Simply Said Stamp Set to finish off this card!
