Here is the card I made...
  
I  made a party time shaker card!! I wanted this to look like a these adorable little critters were have a birthday party I these circles.  To make the shaker I first did a inked background using distress inks in Broken China, Spun Sugar and Twisted Citron just mixing them all over to give splashes of colors all over the background piece. I then cut three different size circles and attached a piece of clear acetate to hold in my shaker bits. I filled my three circles with just a mix of several different kinds of sequins.
 
 
I then stamped thee of these adorable critters from the Hippo Birdy Stamp set and the Wildly Cute stamp set on watercolor paper using versafine ink and heat embossing it with clear.  I colored all the critters with Tombow markers and fussy cut out the critters and two party hats.
 

 
 I attached the critters outside of each of the holes and then popped up the two party hats. I added some Wink of Stella to the party hats to make them sparkle and shine. I stamped the greeting from the Birthday Express Stamp Set . Lastly added a sprinkling of enamel dots to finish the whole thing off.

Here are all the CDD products I used:

Your the cream to my coffee

Hello everyone, this is Michelle here with Kennedy Grace Creations with this adorable coffee inspired card to share with you today. One of my dearest friends Donna loves her coffee and when I saw the new Got Coffee stamp sets I just new I had to have it. 
 

First thing I did was cut the largest scalloped frame from a pink cardstock, then cut the rectangle frame and the next size scallop all from the newest dies Fancy Franes released over at Craftin Desert Divas.  I just love these new dies they are amazing!!!
 
For that piece the I stamped the coffee stains with some espresso ink some full in and them some were second generation stamping changing the direction of the stamp for a random pattern of coffee stains.  I then stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the espresso ink as well.



 
I stamped the little mouse with the coffee cup on water color paper with versamark ink and heat embossed her in clear embossing powder.  I colored her with the Zig real brush watercolor markers then added some wink of Stella on the coffee cup, and the mouse's ears and nose and popped her up with foam tape.   To finish the whole thing off I added a sprinkling of pastel enamel dots.
 
 
Here are the stamps and dies I used and you can find these and so much more at the Craftin Desert Diva's Shop

It's been so long


 
Hello everyone, this is Michelle here with Kennedy Grace Creations with a giraffe card to share with you today.  I knew when I saw this adorable cutie I just knew I had to use him as much as possible.
 
 
 
 
First thing I did was cut the largest scalloped frame from a blue swirl design paper, then cut the rectangle frame and the next size scallop all from the newest dies Fancy Franes released over at Craftin Desert Divas.  I just love these new dies they are amazing!!!
 
For the piece the giraffe is sitting on I did a two toned colored background using Broken China and Cracked Pistachio distress inks. I stamped the giraffe from the So Long mini stamp set on watercolor paper with versafine ink and heat embossed it.


 
I colored him in with Tombow watercolor markers and popped him up with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment also from the same set.  To finish the whole thing off I added a sprinkling of pastel enamel dots.

Here is the card I made...
  
I  made a really cute missing you card! I love the really soft pastel colors in the inspiration photo and just new I wanted to do some ink blending for my focal image background using some distress inks and that is exactly what I did. 
 
 
 
I cut the design paper using the new Fancy Frames dies for the pink scalloped layer and the polka dotted layer as well as the top layer. 
 
I stamped the panda from the Panda Pals Stamp set on watercolor paper using versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I colored in the panda with Tombow watercolor markers. For the smallest inked piece I used Spun Sugar and Cracked Pistachio distress inks for soft background piece.  I stamped both of the greetings from the same stamp set as well. I wrapped the pink and white bakers twine before tying a bow at the top and sprinkled some pastel dots to pull it all together.
