Craftin Desert Divas Stamp Release Blog Hop!!

For my 3 year Blogaversary Giveaway, click HERE!!


Welcome to our 2 day Craftin Desert Diva's stamp release party and blog hop!! The big day is finally here!! This is the Grand Opening of the Craftin Desert Diva's Shop!!

Craftin Desert Divas Shop

We have a new Craftin Desert Divas Shop!!
&

Without further ado...here are the new stamps:

Punny - Purchase HERE

Teenage Dream - Purchase HERE

Summer Lovin' - Purchase HERE

If you've arrived from the fabulous Jessica then you are in the right spot. It not, you will want to start at the beginning with our amazing leader Tara. A complete blog line-up is located for you below my post in case you get lost along the way.

And now for my project....


Summer/beachy projects are my absolute favorite to make :) I was so excited when I saw Tara's Summer Lovin' stamps. Then I came across this beach die from Taylored Expressions and I just had to have it to showcase Tara's stamps :)  The base of the card is watercolor paper. For the rays, I spread Wendy Vecchi Translucent Embossing Paste through a Tim Holtz Rays stencil. The background color was made with Twinkling H2O's. It really shimmers but you can't see it in the pictures. I popped up the beach scene with foam tape for dimension.


I wanted the "Summer Lovin'" sentiment to stand out, so it was heat embossed with snow embossing powder.


I would so love to be laying in that hammock right now :) Your next stop on the hop is the awesome Karen!! Please be sure to come back tomorrow for Day 2!! Tara is giving away one stamp set each day of this hop, so the more you comment the more chances you have to win.

We also have a couple more wonderful sponsors:
