Combining dies – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

I am back today with a card idea where I combined different elements of the newly released die sets from LDRS CreativePractically Oval and Scalloped Rectangle Frame to achieve a new look.

I started with die cutting the biggest rectangle die from a polka dot patterned paper from the Daisy Delight paper pad. I also die cut the stitched oval from white cardstock as my focal point.

Next I stamped a bunch of flowers from the Stinkin’ amazing stamp set with Raven Hybrid ink and coloured them with Tombow markers. I fussy cut them out and ran a black marker on the edges to make sure there are no imperfections.

I clustered them on the top of the white oval and used liquid glue to adhere them. I started from the sides and overlapped tiny the next flowers. The middle one I popped up with 3D foam squares.

The sentiment I took from the If friends were flowers stamp and die set. I die cut the Friend die from black cardstock and adhered it under the flower cluster and stamped the rest of the sentiment with Lipstick jungle Hybrid ink.

I adhered it all on a white card base and it was time for the finishing touches: I added some details with a white gel pen and used a black glaze pen to emphasize the black dots in the middle of the flowers. I glued a couple of black jewels in the centers and my card is finished.

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and will pop in again tomorrow for more. Until then, happy crafting!

Beary great day! – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

I have a beary sweet card for you today which I have made with goodies form the latest release at LDRS Creative.

I started with die cutting a rounded rectangle from alcohol ink friendly cardstock using the new Scalloped Rectangle die set.

With a bit of masking I created a little scene with the Beary Great Day stamp set. I stamped the honey mug with Raven Hybrid ink first, covered it with a mask I made with masking paper. Then I stamped the wooden spoon, covered it with a mask again and finally stamped the bear himself and the bees. I coloured the focal panel with Copic markers. I love how big the bear is, totally fills the panel!

There are so many dies in the Scalloped Rectangle die set, I wanted to use them for a layered look. So I die cut the scalloped rectangle from green cardstock and the fancy rectangle from dark brown. I layered them under the coloured panel and adhered it all to a yellow patterned paper I chose from the Puddle Jumper paper pad.

I did not leave space for the sentiment, but no worries! The die set had a tiny die which was a perfect base for the words I wanted to use. I die cut it first from kraft cardstock and then stamped the sentiment using Coffee Bean Hybrid ink.

As a finishing touch I added some glossy accents to the nose of the bear and the honey spilling out of the mug. I also covered the wings of the bees with a clear shimmer pen for a subtle sparkle.

I hope you like my card and will pop in again soon,

Zsofi

CARD 2

For today I brought you a stinkin’ cute card as we should express our love whenever possible. Right?

I started with stamping the skunks and the heart from the Stinkin’ Amazing stamp set, coloured them with my Copic markers and fussy cut them out strictly next to the black outline.

I selected a couple of patterned papers from the Daisy Delight paper pad and I die cut a fancy oval from on of them using the new Practically Oval die set. I also cut a strip from a green toned one and selected a striped one to be the background.

For the focal panel I chose a light grey cardstock and used another die from the Practically Oval die set. I arranged the coloured images and white heat embossed a sentiment on a thin strip of black cardstock.

After assembling the card I added tiny heart sequins around the skunks and covered the heart with glossy accents so it looks like an epoxy sticker. I finished the card with red and white twine.

CARD 1

I am so happy to share with you my project made with the new Polka Doodles Spot on stamp set and some of the scene building dies.

I started with stamping and colouring the images from this cute set using Copic markers and i fussy cut them out with my scissors.

To create a little scene I die cut some grass from green cardstock using the new In the grass die set. I also cut some white stitched clouds using the In a cloudy sky die set and also made a layered smiling sun with the Here comes the sun die set.

I layered everything flat on a kraft card base and stamped the sentiment with Raven Hybrid ink.

As a finishing touch i had to add some clear shimmer to the sun (as it has to shine bright, right?) and dots of glossy accents on the beaks of the birds and on the middle of the flower. I used a black glaze pen on the eyes to make them shiny.

BLOG HOP

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and the blog hop. Make sure to check back tomorrow as well for Day 2 projects!

My sunshine – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

It is Zsofi here today with a cute and sunny card created with stamps from the latest release of LDRS Creative.

I started with stamping Holly from the Chirpy Chirp stamp set on alcohol friendly white cardstock with Raven Hybrid ink. I coloured her with alcohol markers and cut the panel down. 

I chose 3 patterned papers from the Puddle jumper paper pad with the same pattern just in different colours. The yellow one I cut down to 4,25*5,5 to cover and A2 sized note card. The dark purple I used as a mat for the focal panel and from the blue I cut quarter inch strips.

After assembling the card and popping up the coloured image with 3D foam squares, I started to look for the perfect sentiment. I found it in the Puddle Jumper stamp set: on a small piece of white cardstock I stamped the word sunshine with the rocking technique using Dan-d-lion and Lantern yellow hybrid inks. I repeated it a few times and as a last layer I stamped it again with clear embossing ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. For a more dimensional and shinier look you can repeat the clear embossing a few times (I made it 3 times for this smooth and raised look).

Above the heat embossed sentiment I added another one using Mrs Periwinkle hybrid ink and added a layer of the dark purple patterned paper. As embellishment I used the 2 little butterflies from the Chirpy Chirp set and added little confetti sequins on the stripes. I used a clear shimmer pen on the wings of the butterflies and covered them all with glossy accents, just as the ribbons and the middle of the flowers. I love to add these details, they make a big difference to an already pretty card.

I hope you got inspired on mixing up your stamp sets and giving them a new look. Until next time, happy crafting!

24 carrot friend

Hello Everyone,

I am here with a cute friendship card featuring the Polkadoodles 24 Carrot friend stamp set from LDRS Creative new release. Ah that bunny, makes me smile!

I started with stamping the bunny on a piece of alcohol marker friendly cardstock. I created a mask from masking paper and stamped the grass and the carrots. I used the same Raven Hybrid ink to stamp the sentiment and also the birds. I love how crisp black it stamps!

I used alcohol markers to colour the scene and matted it with blue violet cardstock.

For the background I chose a striped patterned paper from the oh so gorgeous Puddle jumper paper pad and to make the design more interesting, I adhered the focal panel in the left bottom corner.

When I create flat scenes, I love to add some extra finishing touch to the coloured images. I used a clear shimmer pen on the dress and the flower of the bunny and added glossy accents to the nose, flower  and the dot pattern on the dress. I also used a black glaze pen on the dress, cheeks and on the eyes to make them pop.I hope you got inspired and will try these little tricks. 

Until next time, happy crafting!

Chirpy chirp

I am back with another fun card I created with some of the new products at LDRS Creative. If you like to make scenes on your cards but don’t want them to be bulky, I will show you an easy way in today’s tutorial.

I started with stamping and masking the cute sheep from the Polkadoodles Chripy chirp stamp set on Bristol Smooth cardstock. After all of them were covered with masks, I placed the Coming up daisies stencil over them and sponged Alloy Hybrid ink on.

Before removing the masks from the sheep, I applied Key Lime pie Hybrid ink over the Rainy day stencil, to create some grass.

I also used the cloudy edge of the same stencil to add the cloudy sky using Swimming hole Hybrid ink.

When the scene was ready, I removed the masks, stamped the sentiment with Raven Hybrid ink and added a tiny bit of shading with some grey Copic markers.

I cut down the panel a bit, added a black strip under it and cut a 1 inch wide piece from one of the papers from the Puddle Jumper paper pad. I assembled the card and added tiny little google eyes to the sheep. The look even cuter with the moving eyes, so much fun to play with it! So much going on on this simple card, yet it is not bulky at all, easy to mail!
