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!

Puddle Jumper

I am so excited to share with you my card made with a fabulous new stamp set from the May Release at LDRS Creative.

I started with stamping the girl with the umbrella on alcohol ink friendly cardstock, coloured her with my Copics and fussy cut the image with scissors.

Then I heat embossed 3 of the sentiments from the stamp set with white embossing powder on purple cardstock, and cut them down to rectangles.

For the background I chose a rainfall patterned paper from the Puddle jumper pad, I matted it with navy blue cardstock and adhered it to a top folding white notecard. I popped up the girl with 3D foam squares, adhered the sentiments under each other and added some clear gems as embellishments.

I love to add some sparkle and shine to my coloured images, so I made the umbrella shimmery with a clear shimmer pen and covered the rain boots, buttons and the dots on the umbrella with glossy accents.

Blog Hop

I hope you like my card today and will check back tomorrow again for more LDRS Creative fun! The new release is available in the LDRS Creative online store!

See you,

Sweet wedding with Pink and Main

Hello Everyone,

I am here today with a sweet wedding card I created with the newest release from Pink and Main.

I started with stamping the cake and the champagne from the Happily Ever After stamp set on smooth white cardstock and coloured them with Copics. I imagined a pink-gold card so I kept the colours simple. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I also die cut 4 frames from gold cardstock using the Cloudy frames dies and used liquid glue to adhere them together. I added heavy weight vellum to the back of it.

Then I worked on the background. On Bristol Smooth cardstock I stamped the Sprinkles background stamp with Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. As this ink is a slow drying one, I could easily heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. Then I applied Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink on the whole panel very gently.

When the background was dry I die cut it with the largest die from the Stitched Rectangle 2 die set. I assembled the card on a top folding white card base using 3D foam squares to pop up the cake and the parts of the champagne glasses hanging off the frame.

I also stamped a sentiment (I love the pretty hand written font) on white cardstock with Delicata Gold Pigment ink. It matched my frame so well! As I was afraid that the ink smears, I covered it with clear embossing powder and melted it with a heat gun. I fussy cut it with my scissors leaving a bit of a white frame and popped it up on the bottom of the frame.

As a finishing touch I covered the champagne with a clear shimmer pen and added glossy accents to the decoration. Such a happy card with a lot of shiny details to “touch”.

I hope you liked today’s inspiration and will come back soon for more!

Until next time, happy crafting!

Tiffany style birthday – Pink and Main Sneak Peek

Hello Everyone,

I am here today with a Sneak Peek at the upcoming May Release from Pink and Main (available on the 20th May). I was so eager to try the Flower Cover die with the faux glass technique. I love the Tiffany lamps so much and wanted to get a similar look just on a card and with soft colours.

So I die cut the Flower cover die 3 times from heavy weight white cardstock. I adhered the first layer to a white card base using drops of liquid glue.

Then I added colour with my Copics, using 3 shades for each colour family: yellow, pink and blue. I wasn’t very careful with the colours running out of the lines as I knew I would cover it with another layer of the cover die.

When the colouring was done, I went over the petals with a clear shimmer pen for a subtle sparkle. I adhered the other 2 layers and filled all the petals with glossy accents. I set it aside to dry for a few hours.

Meanwhile I created the sentiment: I white heat embossed the Happy Birthday one from Vertical greetings on pink cardstock and cut it down to a very narrow strip. I matted it with yellow and finally with a blue strip, to get more dimension and play with the colours I used on the background.

When everything was dry and in place, I added some gold glossy dots to the middle of the flowers. Looks so elegant! And it seems like glass in real life!

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration. Make sure to subscribe, not to miss any of the sneak peeks!

Happy crafting!

Newton’s Nook Designs May Release – Day 2

Hello Everyone,

It is Day 2 of the May Release reveals at Newton’s Nook Designs. After the movies we are into flowers. The new Dainty Daisies is a pretty floral stamp set with coordinating dies. All new products will be available on Friday 17/05!

Here is my card for today:

I started with stamping and colouring the daisies with Copic markers. I used only light greys for shading a little, but I kept the colouring simple.

I die cut it with the coordinating die and another piece from black cardstock. I layered them on top of each other slightly offset to get a shadow effect.

Then I used the Flags and Frames die set to cut the rounded stitched rectangle from heavy weight vellum and also a scalloped stitched die to cut from rainbow patterned paper as the background. I love the cheerful colours of this paper from Sunny Studio (Spring Sunburst collection).

After adhering all layers I die cut a black banner and white heat embossed the sentiment on it. I popped it up with 3D foam squares. I used liquid glue to adhere the vellum and hid the adhesive behind the flower so it does not show through.

I covered all the petals with Tonic Aqua clear shimmer and added glossy accents in the middle of each flower. I also added black dots around the flower with a black glaze pen. As a final embellishment I added some crystals from Lucy’s Little Things around the sentiment.

Coffee makes my heart happy

Hello Everyone,

I am back with my last coffee card for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop. It was so much fun to create all these projects, I wish you enjoyed them too.

For the last card I used a pretty background stamp from Picket Fence Studios, heat embossed on dark brown cardstock with clear embossing powder. I love the raised look and shine!

Then I stamped and coloured two little piggies from the Farmyard Little Bits from Hello Bluebird and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I also made and extra coffee glass, just as an embellishment.

I die cut the Coffee word (Stamplorations die) 3 times from green cardstock and layered them on top of each other.

I stamped a funny little sentiment on a thin pink strip of cardstock and popped it up under the coffee die cut.

Quite simple, yet so cute, don’t you think?

I hope you liked my coffee/tea projects this week, and you will follow my creative journey in the future too. Next week is the May release week and Newton’s Nook Designs so get ready for a lot of fun!

Till then, happy crafting!

It’s been Oolong

Hello Everyone,

After a little break I am back with a clean and simple card for your bestie featuring the newly released Tea-rific stamp and die set from Pink and Main.

I started with stamping one of the pretty tea pots and two cups with a clear embossing ink and poured black embossing powder on it. I love the shiny, deep black outline but if you are not comfortable with using black powder you can always use Versafine Onyx black ink for stamping and clear embossing powder over it.

After heat setting the images I used Altenew watercolour markers and a waterbrush to add colour. I cut the images with the coordinating dies.

I die cut an Eyelet cover from cream textured cardstock, cut it down a little and backed it with a light blue cardstock piece which is 4,25*5,5 inches.

I heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on a black strip of cardstock using white embossing powder and adhered it to the edge of the lace and popped up the tea pot with the cups.

I hope you liked today’s tea-rific inspiration and will pop in again a bit later for more!

Until next time,

Zsofi
