CDD There For You Mini Release .....

Hello everyone !! 
I feel like it has been a while since I have blogged and 
had projects to share with you !! 
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving . 
I hosted it this year ....it had been a couple of years since I hosted. 
I seemed to have forgotten how much work goes into 
preparing and hosting Thanksgiving. 
I have a whole new deep respect for each and every person 
that takes the time to cook !! 

For today we are doing a mini release 
for Craftin Desert Divas . The stamp set is 
called There For You


This is from the CDD blog : 
Recently, our happy world of CDD encountered a bit of heartbreak. Unbeknownst to Tara (the owner of Crafting Desert Divas), CDD was the victim of intellectual property theft. Many beloved CDD images were stolen, manufactured, and are being sold by a Chinese online retailer. These CDD copies are of the lowest quality and at a completely unbelievable price point.  Imagine the heartbreak that Tara felt. These creatures that were lovingly created for CDD fans through many hours of brainstorming, blood, sweat, and tears were made available to the public without her consent.

Such a sad but heartbreakingly true situation . 
That is the reason for this release . 
We would like to promote awareness . 
If you would like to read the full post please

I have two cards to share with you . 
LOVE the sentiments from this set !! 


For this card I focused on the sentiment from the set . 
I paired it with the yeti from the Yeti Fun set . 


I adore how the yeti is holding the fox . 
I thought the sentiment was perfect for this image . 


I colored them in using Copic markers. 
For the fox I began with E18, E35, E31. 
For the yeti I used E55,53,51,50 . 
For the fur I used W5,3, and W1. 



For this card I used the images and sentiment from the stamp set . 



I began by heat embossing the sentiment with black embossing powder. 


I then colored the images using Copics once again. 
For the brick part of the building , 
I used R46,27,17,05 , 02 and a bit of R01. 
For the brown areas I used E44, 43,42,41 and a bit of E49 . 




I hope you enjoy the cards I created to share with you today . 
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by ! 
Wishing you a wonderful and Blessed day !!

I was going for a winter fox look (if that makes sense , lol ). 


I went for a red sky background to match the color of the scarf , hat and skates.

CDD November 2017 Release Sneak Peek Day 3 ...

Hello and Happy Wednesday everyone ! 
Mayra here from Mayras Designs 
with today's post . 
Today is Day 3 of our CDD 
November 2017 Release Sneak Peeks .

We are sneak peeking the pretty Winter Fairies stamp set 
and the Snowflake Scribble Die . 

I used the Winter Fairies stamp set 
for my card today . 
I began by coloring my fairy . 
I used Copic markers to color her in . I used 
E04 to begin with and I loved the 
tone of the color . I decided to do a mauve / copper theme . 
Picking the E04 was the easiest ... lol now to figure 
out which other colors I would be using ... 
I then went for the RV95 , then a bit of R00 , R000 and R0000. 



The copper color was a lot easier to figure out .
I believe I used E97, 99 , 18 and 31 and a bit of E50. 

I wanted the fairy to be the main focus of the card so I 
kept the rest of the card fairly simple ( for me ,lol ). 


For the base of the card I used Fancy Frames dies . 
For the sentiment I die cut the Sending word from 
copper glitter cardstock . I stamped the sentiment from the 
Christmas Wishes stamp set  onto a strip of soft pink cardstock . 
I also die cut a poinsettia from the Winter Wonderland dies 
 in the same colors . 

I hope you are enjoying our sneak peeks and the cards we are creating 
to share with you !! Please join us on our Facebook Event Page 

I also have the card I created for our CDD Social Media
Monthly Mood Board Challenge .


I started with the adorable little mouse from the
Harvest Wishes stamp set .


I then die cut the Trees Border from the 


I used my Distress Inks to add color to the trees and the grassy area . 
For the trees I added a bit of Shabby Shutters , Rusty Hinge and Mustard Seed . 
I used Rusty Hinge , Carved Pumpkin and Mustard Seed for the sky . 

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

CDD November Release Sneak Peek Day 2 ...

Hello everyone !! 
Yay , It is day 2 of our 
Sneak Peeks . 

Today we are sneak peeking the
 Holiday Sweater stamp set . 

I love the images in this set and believe 
me they are adorable . For my card I 
used the actual sweater image to create 
my card . 



I went with the traditional red and green 
for the color combo of this card . 
As I was coloring .. all kinds of different color 
combinations were coming to mind that I would love to color this image in 
( leaving it for a future cards , lol ). 
  

I used R46,27,17,05 and a bit of R02 for the red areas. 
For the greens it was super simple as it isn't a big area . 
I used YG67 , 17 and 13. 


To finish the card I used the Winter Wonderland Dies
