Favorite Stamps with Favorite Technique

Candice here kicking off a new challenge for Craftin Desert Divas with you today!  We are bringing you our Design Teams favorites; our favorite stamp sets and techniques all week long! I am starting us off with my favorites, they change often and this one combines some of my new favs with the old ones!

I have been wanting to make a long card for a little bit now and it is my new favorite style!  It allows me to use all the cute critters from one of my favorite stamp sets, critter punnies.

I am a big, did I say BIG fan of stitched dies and Craftin Desert Divas has a huge selection of them!  I will share the list of CDD supplies I used and then share how I created this long beauty!

I scored an 8 1/2 x 11 white cardstock down the long side and trimmed 1/2″ off to allow my dies to fit perfectly.  I first created the clouds using broken china oxide ink.  I die cut the fence and grass, gluing the fence down and inking the grass with bundled sage & peeled paint before gluing down.  I then die cut two trees, a bunch of leaves & apples and inked the trees with antique linen & gathered twigs.  I colored the leaves and apples with copics and then pop dotted the two trees and with all the leaves and apples.

For the critter punnies i stamped them on X-press it paper using memento black ink and colored with copic markers.  I glued and pop dotted them to the card.  I added some stitched puffy clouds to the sky.  The sentiment i stamped on the banner using versafine black ink and pop dotted over the lines from merging the two die cuts of grass.

I love Craftin Desert Divas assortment of cute critters in their stamp sets and love that with these long cards I can use all of them!

I hope you try your hand at a long card using Craftin Desert Divas stamps and don’t forget to share your creations at Craftin Desert Divas Gallery on FB!
