2 Welcome Baby Cards with LDRS Creative

Hello LDRS fans! I am back on the blog with you today to share two Welcome Baby cards, showcasing the Hoppy Egg Hunt stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Sophie Uppercase Die SetSophie Lowercase Die SetA2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers DieSlim Line Pocket Basket Weave Pocket Die SetPastel Dreams 6×6 Paper Pack, and Farmer’s Market 6×6 paper pack.  Here’s what they look like:
I started by stamping my images on some Neenah Solar White card stock with Raven Hybrid Ink.   I colored them in with alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.  Next, I die-cut two patterned papers from the 6×6 Pastel Dreams and 6×6 Farmer’s Market Paper Packs using the biggest die from the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die.  Both patterned papers kind of matched the alcohol markers that I used to color my focal images. I adhered both patterned papers to an A2 size notecard.
I used the scallop die from the Slim Line Pocket Basket Weave Pocket Die Set to die-cut two pieces and used the inner die with my embossing mat to emboss the middle.  I wanted to have more texture to this background without overwhelming the whole card design.  I adhered both pieces to my card using my ATG Tape Runner.  I also adhered the images on both cards.
I die-cut the word “Baby” twice using the Sophie Uppercase Die Set and Sophie Lowercase Die Set.  I used the same markers to color the die-cuts to match the little basket.  I also used a darker marker to highlight the bottom of the letters for added texture.  I adhered the letters on the card with liquid glue.
I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Watermark Ink on some black card stock.  I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder on this and used my heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.  I fussy-cut the sentiment using my precision snips and adhered to the card using my ATG Tape Runner.  Here’s another look at both baby cards:

You’re One of a Kind with LDRS Creative

Hello my crafty friends!  Maria Russell with you today on the LDRS blog with a simple “Valentine-themed” card showcasing one of my favorite stamp sets from the shop.  I am featuring the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers die setUp & Away stamp set and dies, along with the Rainy Day StencilAnytime Stack stamp setSentiment Stack Coordinating Die and In the Breeze die

Since Valentine’s Day is fast-approaching, I thought I’d get a head start and create some simple cards that you can easily mass-produce to send to friends.  I started by stamping my images on some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card Stock with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored the images in with alcohol markers.  I used the Up & Away die set to die-cut the images.

Next, I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest Solar White Card Stock using the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers die set.  I started to create my outdoor scene with the Rainy Day Stencil, a blending brush and Pistachios-A-Plenty Hybrid Ink for the grass.  The pink clouds were created with the same Rainy Day Stencil, blending brush and Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink.  I don’t know about you but this color-combo just screams “valentine’s” to me!

I used the In the Breeze die for added texture and adhered this panel on an A2-size card base.

Next, I adhered the images on the card with some liquid glue.  I finished my design by adding the sentiment “You’re One of a Kind“, that was earlier stamped on some black card stock using the Anytime Stack stamp set and Sentiment Stack Coordinating Die.  These stamp-and-die combo is one of my favorites because you can stamp the sentiments and die-cut a bunch with just one pass on your die-cutting machine.  LDRS has a few of these awesome stamps so check them all out at the shop and grab your favorites.  

I really love how this card turned out, don’t you?!  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
