CDD August Release Blog Hop - Day 1

Welcome to the Craftin Desert Divas August Release Blog Hop. We have some wonderful stamps and dies that we will be sharing with you. 

All stamps are in the CDD shop and now available for purchase HERE.

We also offer SVG stamp outlines for .99 only, they work perfectly with your cutting machine. You must have a program that opens these files. This is a great alternative to coordinating dies and much less expensive.

Here's what I've created for you:

For today's project I've decided to go with "Your Wish" clear stamp set and create a shaker card! First, I've created a frame and made the background with Distress Inks and a blending tool. After it dried, I white heat embossed the sentiment in the top right corner and sprinkled some water and white paint on the whole background paper piece to make it look like a starry night sky. I then colored a genie with her cute little friend with Copic markers and then placed them on the card. To finish off my project I added some sequins and foam tape on the background - and it was done! :)

And now here are the specials for this release: 
**New Shimmer sequins will be on SALE for $1.00.
**FREE SHIPPING with minimum on orders placed.
Shipping minimum orders:
$10 USA use Code: 10SHIP
$15 International use Code: 15SHIP

Enjoy this special for in stock items only 8/22 thru 8/31 at 10pm MST. 
All Stamps and Dies are made in the USA.
