CDD Side Stepper Cool Treats Card

Hello!! I'm so happy to be sharing my new side stepper card. I've created this card using some of the Craftin Desert Diva's  fabulous digital stamp set called Cool Treats. This set is brilliant there are so many combination possibility to create so many cards and backgrounds.



I've had a super fun time with this card. I think scene cards are one my favourite type of card to make. I've coloured everything on this card the children and flowers have been coloured with Touch Five Markers and Pencils. The grass, bush, trees and sky are all coloured using Distress Inks and watercolours. I've used two Craftin Desert Diva's Die Cut Set called Outdoor Landscape 2 Die Set and Garden Boarder Die Set. I've used every die cut in these two sets to create the background.
I've made this card as inspiration for the Craftin Desert Diva's August Mood Board Facebook Challenge.


This is the August Mood Board Challenge image. I was inspired by the ice cream, flowers, colours and wording on this Mood Board.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges

CDD Interactive Ahoy There Pirate Boy Card

Hi there me maties! I'm here to share my fun interactive boys birthday card. I've had so much fun with digital stamp from Craftin Desert Diva's. I decided this time to keep the elements to a minimum to show of this little cutie. He is from the Ahoy There set. Here is where you can find more Craftin Desert Diva's digital stamps.


I've coloured the image with Touch Five Markers and pencils. The die cut waves in front of him are a Craftin Desert Diva's Die Cut Set called Outdoor Landscape 2 Die Set. I truly love this set as I love to create scene cards and this gives you everything you need to create a fabulous scene card. I used Broken China Blue Distress Ink to colour the waves. The background is a splatter Acrylic Paint background that I've made. I'm not sure if you can see but I added die cut to the top of the card to resemble clouds. This is from the Garden Boarder Die Set. I totally love all the pirates in the shop and hope this card inspires you. I fussy cut this one out and using a brad pin and a coin (hidden under the water waves) the boat can be moved. This allows the boat to rocks side to side. I followed this super easy YouTube tutorial video by Maymay Made It.
