Sweet square card with LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

I am here today with a sweet square card featuring the newly released Goody Gumdrops and Wordalicious stamp sets.

I started with placing 3 of the candies from the Goody Gumdrops stamp set in my stamp positioner and stamped them onto a white square panel cut to be 4*4 inches. Then I turned the panel upside down and stamped it again with Raven Hybrid ink. Then I filled the gaps on the sides with 2 of the candies.

I stamped the sentiment in the middle of the square panel from the Wordalicious stamp set. Then I coloured the images with alcohol markers.

I mounted the panel on an aqua striped patterned paper from the Candy Counter paper pad and adhered it to a 4.25*4.25 inches square card. I coated the candies with clear shimmer and embellished the card with some jewels in coordinating colours.

I hope you like my card and got inspired. Until next time, happy crafting!

Today I have a little tutorial for you on how to get a pretty yet simple and very colourful card design. The recipe is simple: take a piece of patterned paper, some matching Hybrid ink colours and the new Wordalicious stamp set.

I started with adhering a gorgeous rainbow hearts patterned paper from the Candy Counter paper pad to cover the entire A2 sized card front.

Then I selected ink pads which matched the hearts: Four Leaf, Bali Blue, Dark Wash Jeans, La La Lavender, Grape Ape and Lipstick Jungle. I arranged the words I wanted to use in my stamp positioner using a lined acetate sheet as helper to make sure the spacing is right. As I used the mini ink cubes, I could easily ink up each word with a different colour at once. The stamp positioner allowed me to stamp them 3 times to make the colours pop and dark enough. Then I cut the stamped panel down.

Then I die cut 2 different scallop border dies: one from dark blue and one from lavender cardstock, layered them on top of each other and adhered to the white stamped panel. It is an easy way to add a little extra to a simple design.

I love the result, it is easy to re-create, even to make multiples of. And it is so colourful, totally cheers me up!

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and you will hop along and comment to win. Here is the full list for today:

And now, lets dive in today’s card inspiration. I used the new Sweet Treats stamp set to create this simple design.

I started with stamping some of the treats on a white cardstock top and bottom. I used my Copics to add colour to them. I matted the panel with a slightly bigger black rectangle piece.

Then i stamped the label from the stamp set with Raven black ink and added a sentiment to it from the Wordalicious stamp set using Raven and Four Leaf Hybrid inks. I fussy cut it out and ran a black marker along the edges to make it look perfect.

I chose a green striped patterned paper from the Homemade happiness collection as the background, and also used the back side of it to cut a thin strip to hold the label i created earlier. I added a bit of clear shimmer and glossy accents on the treats and my card is finished.

For my card today I used the new Goody Gumdrops stamp set and stamped the fun gumball machine with Raven Hybrid ink on a white stitched circle I die cut with the Holly Wreath die set. I added colour with my Copic markers and coated the sweets with glossy accent for a shiny look.

Until it was drying I stamped the banner and a sentiment in it from the Wordalicious stamp set using Lantern yellow and Dan-D-Lion Hybrid inks. I fussy cut it out and adhered to the top of the stitched circle.

I cut a piece from the gorgeous Candy Counter paper pad and added 2 scalloped borders to the sides of it before mounting it on a white top folding card base.

I also die cut the word Sweet from metallic pink cardstock and stamped “birthday” from the Wordalicious stamp set with Four leaf Hybrid ink on a small piece of green cardstock to make the sentiment complete.

Happy Valentine’s Day – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone, 

This is my second post today. To see my card for the Newton’s Nook Designs February Release, please click here. Today is Valentine’s Day and I brought you a cute love card I made for LDRS Creative.

I love to mix and match stamp sets and this is what I did: on a white die cut rectangle (Eyelet Lace Rectangle die set) i stamped a sentiment and the smallest balloon from the Cloud no.9 stamp set. I am fond of critters and the rabbit-mouse couple from the Happy Fall stamp set are so adorable together. Why not to bring them to a love scene? I used Raven Hybrid ink for my stamping and coloured the images with alcohol markers.

Then I die cut another 2 small rectangles: one black and one from metallic red cardstock. I layered them under the focal panel and adhered them to a wooden patterned paper from the Happy Fall paper pad which I cut to be 4,25*5,5 inches.

I believe that finishing touches can take a simple card to another level, so I used a black and a white gel pen to add some details to the cheeks of the critters, and covered the hearts and balloon with glossy accents. I also scattered some heart shaped and some golden jewels from Studio Katia across the card.

I hope you like this cute Valentine’s Day scene and I inspired you to mix and match your stamps. Until next time, happy crafting! And Happy Valentine’s Day!

Clean and simple Love card – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

I am here today with a simple love card using goodies from LDRS Creative for the quickly approaching Valentine’s Day, but can be used for any occasion as a little act of kindness.

I started with stamping the bunch of heart balloons from the Cloud no.9. stamp set on a piece of white cardstock. Then I used the small rectangle die from the Eyelet Lace Rectangle die set to cut it and matted it with a pretty patterned paper from the Sincerely Yours paper pad before adhering it to an A2 sized piece of patterned paper from the same pad.

I used alcohol markers in red and pink tones to add colour to the heart balloons. I covered them with a clear shimmer pen for a sparkly look.

The sentiment I die cut with the Love die 3 times from dark red cardstock and layered them on top of each other. I cut an extra piece from a scrap piece of white cardstock too, and used a pink marker to colour the two hearts which I adhered to the sentiment. I also coated these inlaid hearts with glossy accents. I love how it looks, like little shiny gems!

I had a lot of little red hearts left from die cutting the sentiment and I just could not have the heart to throw them away. Therefore i adhered them all around my focal panel. Such a simple way to embellish a clean and simple card, but i really love the result! 

I hope I inspired you with this card and you will make some handmade cards for your loved ones for Valentine’s Day. Until next time, happy crafting!

Have a lovely Christmas – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

Iam on the LDRS Creative Blog today with a foxy Christmas card. I love to mix and match stamps and dies from my LDRS Creative stash to create a totally new look and use stamps for other occasions than what they were designed for.

ZSOFIA_Safsafdesign2016_ARCTICSNOWFALL1_DEC5

These foxes from the Arctic Snowfall stamp set were begging me to colour them for a while now. I just could not resist any longer, i used my alcohol markers to add colour to them. Then i fussy cut them out with my scissors, and used a black marker on the edges to make any imperfection disappear.

ZSOFIA_Safsafdesign2016_ARCTICSNOWFALL2_DEC5

To set the scene for my fox family, i die cut the rectangle from the Eyelet Lace Rectangle die set from a patterned paper (Arctic Snowfall paper pad) and also from white glitter paper. I used the stitched slope die from the Snowy Day border die set to cut the snowy slopes.

ZSOFIA_Safsafdesign2016_ARCTICSNOWFALL3_DEC5

I cut another patterned paper from the same collection to cover an A2 sized card front and stamped the sentiment from the Love in blooms stamps set using Mrs Periwinkle Hybrid Ink. I love how well it coordinates with the patterned paper i used in the background!

ZSOFIA_Safsafdesign2016_ARCTICSNOWFALL5_DEC5

The other half of the sentiment is a die cut Christmas: i cut it from dark grey cardstock and from glitter cardstock which i layered on top of the grey one a bit offset. I assembled the card and adhered the foxes in place using a thin 3D foam tape. I used a black glaze pen and a white gel pen on the noses and eyes as a finishing touch.

ZSOFIA_Safsafdesign2016_ARCTICSNOWFALL4_DEC5

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.

I hope you got inspired to stretch your stamps and make holiday cards with them. Until next time, happy crafting!
