CDD June 2017 Release Sneak Peek Day 5 ...

Hello and Happy Thursday everyone !!
Today is Day 5
of our Craftin Desert Divas
June 2017 Release Sneak Peeks .

Today we are sneak peeking the
Coffee Trolls Stamp set .

I was inspired by one of the new sequin mixes being released 
for the colors I used . 

I used Fancy Frames Dies for this card . 
I created the look of a shaker card , without it actually being a shaker . 
I colored my images in first , using Copic markers . 
I love coming up with different combinations , 
sometimes they work and believe me sometimes they don't . 
I then used Distress Inks to create the background . 
I used Tattered Rose ( one of all time favorite colors ) , 
Fired Brick and a bit of Worn Lipstick (I believe ...I forgot to write them down ) . 

For the next card I created to share with you 
I was inspired by the Color Combo Challenge 
This is the inspiration photo : 

This is the card I created : 
 I colored up the cute cake and cupcake image from the Sugar Rush stamp set , 
but I ended up not using them for this card . 
Hopefully , I am able to create cards with them before the challenge is over . 
 I die cut the word Happy from 110lb. cardstock . 
I then used my Distress Inks to create the stripes . 
I used Picked Raspberry , Fossilized Amber , Mowed Lawn and Mermaid Lagoon . 

I love the bright colors ! 
I decided to use the butterfly dies from the 
I used the same colors of Distress Inks to color them in . 

The sentiment is from The Party stamp set . 

I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create !! 

Thank you so much for stopping by !!
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !!

I have a feeling more combos work for you than don't. :) You have such a great eye for colors and card design. And your coloring skills are so distinctive. Fun card!!
