With a new year comes new challenges and exciting news! I am super excited to share with you that I am part of the 2019 Craftin’ Desert Divas (CDD) Design Team! Thanks to Tara B., the owner, I will be having some fun with the company’s fresh and fun designs. Today’s my first post for the Divas. Let’s get this party started with these cute trolls all dressed and ready to celebrate from the stamp set, Celebration Trolls (There is an SVG file for this set, too!) 

To create the festive background for the Celebration Trolls, I used the CDD Star Stencil and Ranger Distressed Oxide Inks (also available at Craftin’ Desert Divas in Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac and Seedless Preserves to create the background mural design. By layering colors, I got this cheery backdrop for my images that blend for a continuous look. I colored the images in pinks and lavenders using my Copic Sketch Markers. I hand drew a quick dance/party floor for the celebration. Lastly, I added some Bubblegum sequins to the card front. I have quite a selection of sequins, but I really love this Bubblegum mix. They totally sparkle! They have little mirror-like pieces in them that remind me of a disco ball. Fitting, right?! 

While I’m using the card to celebrate the new year, it is also a card that could be used for any celebration including a birthday, anniversary, graduation, retirement event, etc. If there’s a reason to party and celebrate, then this vivid card is perfect for the occasion! 

I’m sharing a photo of the entire design team for Craftin’ Desert Divas in case you want to check out their IG and blogs. These ladies are very creative and uber talented individuals. Thanks for visiting me! I will say 2018 was great, but I think 2019 is going to shine! Let’s shine together in 2-0-1-9! Bobbi
