Under The Sea Shaker Card




Hi and welcome, everyone! Today I'm over on the Craftin Desert Divas Blog for Tuesday's Craft Tips/Tutorials. I have a fun project to share using partial die-cutting and a shaker card showcasing the adorable Under The Sea Stamp and Die Bundle.

Who says the top of the card has to be straight? Not me!

Let's get this party started! 
1.Using the Stitched In Circle Die cut the largest scalloped circle.
2. Using the smallest scalloped Stitched In Circle Die center and lightly make a few marks around the outer edge, move die-cut to the side for now.

 3. Decide how you want to arrange the die-cuts. Easy so far, right?

This is where it gets interesting. 
4. Position the edge of the die slightly over your pencil mark.
5. Place top cutting plate over the die and line it up with pencil mark and run through the machine. 
Remember you don't want to cut the whole die.

That was the hard part. 
6. Now you have to die cut the smallest scalloped Stitched In Circle Die to create the frame.
This is very important, be sure the die is UNDER the partial cuts or you will cut through them. 
All that work for nothing, what?

Happy Easter from In The Crafting Cave





Happy Easter

Hi and Welcome! Today I'm up on the Craftin Desert Divas blog sharing these two cuties for their 
daily post. I hope everyone is having a wonderful day filled with
family and friends. 

This is a picture of two Easter cards featuring a bunny and eggs in grass.

I used the new Build A Scene and Bunny Trail Stamp Set to create these fun 
Easter cards. 
That adorable little bunny is from the Chilly Stamp Set.

Hello, friends! The theme for this Linky Party at Craftin Desert Divas is "Color/Photo Inspiration"! We would love to see all of your projects that fit this theme! So go ahead and craft it and link it up on the Craftin Desert Diva's Blog.

Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly Linky Party over

about  the prizes! Every Linky Party will have a winner and a Top 3!

Our Sponsors for this Linky Party are:

Here is what I made.


This card is very easy and great for heat embossing beginners.   I cut white cardstock to 4.25" x 5.5" for card base, die-cut white cardstock with the largest die from Fancy Frame Dies, stamped and embossed the big egg  from Bunny Trail Stamp Set, die-cut scalloped oval from Fancy Stitched Label Dies, stamped and heat embossed sentiment from Bunny Trail. I wanted the embossing to be messy to mimic the eggs in the photo. 






Here are all the CDD products I used:
