Thinking of You with LDRS Creative

I have been enjoying creating clean and simple cards and today’s project is super easy, you can create this in less than 30 minutes!

For today’s card, I am showcasing the Finest Blooms Pirouette Stamp Set and Finest Blooms Pirouette Coordinating Dies, along with the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set with the following Hybrid Inks –> Pink TutuKey Lime Pie and Raven.

I started by die-cutting some Beige, Pink and White card stock using the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set.  I adhered the layers on an A2-size notecard, and foam-mounted the white card stock for added dimension.

Next, I stamped the images with Raven Hybrid Ink on some Neenah Solar White Card Stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers.  I used the Finest Blooms Pirouette Coordinating Dies to cut them all out.  The leaves and flowers were stamped using Pink Tutu and Key Lime Pie Hybrid Inks.

I finished my design by foam-mounting the images on the card for added dimension and stamping the sentiment with Raven Hybrid ink.  Here’s another look:

2 Cards Featuring Floral Toner Toppers & Sunny Meadow Stamp Set

Hello LDRS Creative fans! Things are pretty busy here on my side of the world but I am throughly enjoying Spring! What about you?

I also have been trying to build my stash of “just-because” cards to send to family and friends and so for today’s project, I have two cards to share with you using one pattern paper. 

While looking at all of my LDRS paper pad collection, I decided to use the beautiful Floral Toner Toppers 6×6 Paper Pad, along with the Lovely Watercolor Ephemera PiecesSunny Meadow Petal Pusher Stamp Set and Sunny Meadow Petal Pushers coordinating dies with the AMAZING LDRS Hybrid Inks.  The black strips were die-cut using the 1/8″ Slimline Background Strips.

Both cards below are pretty much identical with the exception of the sentiments used.

I started by stamping the images from the Sunny Meadow Petal Pusher Stamp Set on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I made sure I had enough images to create two cards. 

The layering inks I used today are:  Pink TutuLipstick JungleScarlet RoseKey Lime PieOlive BranchPistachios-A-PlentyFour LeafLa La Lavender and Grape Ape.

Next, I cut the Floral Toner Toppers Paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 then used my paper trimmer to cut it in half, diagonally.  I foam-mounted both pieces on some A2-size notecards.  I cut the black strips using the 1/8″ Slimline Background Strips Die Strips Die on some black card stock and adhered on the card with liquid glue.

The next step was to adhere the floral images on the card with liquid glue and foam adhesive for added dimension.  I finished the card design by adding the sentiments on the card using the Lovely Watercolor Ephemera Pieces and You’re Simply The Best stamp set

Here’s another look at both cards:

I hope you like these cards today and much as I do!  Below, you will find links to the supplies used to create this project(s). Where available, I use compensated affiliate links at no extra cost to you. Your support helps me to keep bringing you new projects and inspiration. Thank you!
