Craftin Desert Divas Simply Said Stamp Set

Hi Everyone!

I'm sharing a card from one of the newest Craftin Desert Divas stamp sets called Simply Said. Wow, this is a must have for your stamp collection, it has some gorgeous fonts. I have showcased two sentiments, Just for You HERE & Congrats HERE. Today I'm showcasing Happy Birthday.

I just had to make another shaker... I just think shaker cards scream party :) This time I used a die cut instead of a square or circle... A little trickier but I will say using sequins is MUCH easier:) So it's pretty simple once you get the shaker done.  I always stamp first, layer next. Look at this stamp - AWESOME every time. 

Oh I thought I would take a second and answer a few questions I have received. On ALL of my projects using black ink they are stamped with Ranger Archival Ink Jet Black.  My opinion is that it's the best ink and lasts the longest too :) Next question I get a lot is about my pictures....I wish I had some secret or trick for you but reality is that I live in southern California so the majority of our days are sunny and I shoot my pics on my front porch using indirect light. However, there is one tip I can give you... I recently discovered picmonkey it's a free photo editing program and some of the girls from my CDD DT suggested it and well I tried it and it's pretty easy and gives some pretty cool results.

All paper is American Crafts
Sequins are from Micheals

Stop by Craftin Desert Diva's Shop to purchase the newest release and don't forget to join the 
CDD Gallery - We'd love you to share your projects using the CDD stamps.
