3 Last-Minute Halloween Cards with Matching Envelopes | LDRS Creative

Hello my crafty friends! Are you all done creating Halloween Cards yet?! If you are looking to create some last-minute Halloween cards without the fuss of stamping and coloring images, here’s a cute project for you (or should I say, a couple?)!  These cards are so easy to make and they have cute matching envelopes to boot!

For today’s projects, I am showcasing the Trick-or-Treat 6×6 Halloween Paper Pack, along with the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card ToppersLarge Word Halloween DiesA2 Envelope Dies and A2 Envelope Liner Die.  Let me just tell you that the new A2 Envelope Dies with the A2 Envelope Liner Die are SO EASY to put together and they look like you bought them from a stationery store!

All 3 cards (and envelopes) were made the same way!  If I wasn’t running out of the Trick-or-Treat Halloween Paper, I could have made more, to be honest!

I started by die-cutting the sentiments using the Large Word Halloween Dies [this die-set is another favorite of mine from the latest release] on some different colors of card stock.  I adhered them together with liquid glue.

Next, the background panel was die-cut using the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die and adhered on some black A2-size notecard.  I foam-mounted the Halloween Sentiments onto the card for added dimension.  Easy peasy and I’m done with all three cards!  However, I wanted to add some matching envelopes to finish the design.  I used the A2 Envelope Dies and the A2 Envelope Liner Die to die-cut some black and gray card stock and the matching Halloween Paper that I used to create the cards.  I adhered them together using some strong adhesive.  Here’s another look at the finished projects:

Haunted Mansion Pockets Pals by LDRS Creative

Hello!  I have a SPOOKY card for you guys today, featuring the Haunted Mansion Pocket Pals stamp set from the LDRS Creative new Fall/Halloween Collection.

I started by stamping the Haunted Mansion image on some Neenah Solar White card stock with Raven Hybrid ink [this ink is perfect for using with either watercolor or alcohol markers].  I colored the images in with alcohol markers.  My color palette was inspired by the packaging itself.  I definitely LOVE that LDRS Creative gives you ideas on how to color the stamps.  I wish more companies will do this with their packaging.

Next, I carefully ink-blended the background using Dark Wash Jeans Hybrid ink and some blending brush to create the night sky.  

To create a spooky effect, I stamped the little “ghosty” images and the bats on the window and background with Raven Hybrid ink.  I also die-cut the grass panel twice on some black card stock using the In the Grass Die Set.  I adhered these on the card with liquid glue.

Now that my scene is almost finished, I decided to add the moon that I die-cut using the By the Light of the Moon Die Set.  I also stamped the sentiment on some black card stock with LDRS Watermark ink.  I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and used heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.  I fussy-cut the sentiment and adhered on the card.

Lastly, I used some white gel pen to add some dots and stars for added texture and interest.  Here’s another look at the finished card:

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!

2 Cards Featuring Easter Pirouette Stamp Set by LDRS Creative

Hello everyone!  I was away for two weeks and I couldn’t wait to start creating today! I am back sharing two cute Easter cards, showcasing the Easter Pirouette stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the One Fine Day 6×6 Paper Pad that I mixed with a few older stamp sets (mentioned below) and the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set by LDRS Creative.

The new LDRS release is to die for!  I honestly didn’t know which stamp set to feature for my cards today since they are all AMAZING, but since Easter is coming soon, I figured I’d share some Easter-themed cards!

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah Solar White card stock with Raven Hybrid Ink.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I also die-cut another panel of Neenah solar white using the smallest die from the Diagonal Stitched Layered Frames and stamped the images from the Hoppy Egg Hunt (eggs) and A Day in the Park (tree) using Raven Hybrid Ink.  I colored them using alcohol markers and adhered the cute little chick to finish the scene. I matted this panel with some black card stock that I die-cut using the Diagonal Stitched Layered Frames

The colorful background was made by using the biggest die from the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die set and the One Fine Day 6×6 Paper Pad that I adhered on an A2-size notecard.

I finished the card design by using some white gel pen for added texture.  Here’s another look at the first card:

For my second card, I also used the Finest Blooms Pirouette Stamp Set and coordinating dies with a few of my favorite layering Hybrid Inks –> Pink TutuLipstick JungleKey Lime Pie, Peachy KeenIn Your Face OrangeLittle Boy Blue and Bali Blue.

First, I prepared the background that I matted with some black card stock.  I stamped the images randomly from the Finest Blooms Pirouette stamp set using the hybrid inks I mentioned above.  I had so much fun mixing and matching the beautiful colors!

Next, I used the Finest Blooms Pirouette Coordinating Dies to die-cut the middle of the background panel.  The idea behind that is to in-lay the wreath that I stamped using the Finest Blooms Stamp Set with the Key Lime Pie Hybrid Ink and die-cut using the coordinating die.

I in-laid the wreath with foam-adhesive for added dimension and adhered the center die-cut with liquid glue.  I also adhered the cute little chick in the middle from the Easter Pirouette stamp set.  I adhered the card front on some A2-size notecard.

To finish my design, I stamped the sentiment from the Easter Pirouette Stamp Set using Watermark Ink on some black card stock.  I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and used my heating tool to heat-set the sentiment.  I love that the sentiment also has a coordinating die to cut it out perfectly!  It really is worth the investment!  I added some foam adhesive and liquid glue on the sentiment and adhered on the card panel.  Here’s another look:

I hope you like my cards today and got inspired to shop the new LDRS Spring Release!  The supplies I used are listed and linked below for your convenience.  Thanks for stopping by today, and happy stamping!

I’m SO Happy That You’re My Person

Hello everyone, it’s Maria!  It’s the middle of the week and I hope you are having a great day so far!  I am back today with a clean and simple card, showcasing some of my favorite products from the last release by LDRS Creative.

For my project today, I am showcasing the Perfect Petals Layering Dies, along with the Modern Geometric A2 Coverplate IModern Geometric A2 Coverplate IIModern Geometric A2 Coverplate III, Happy Me, Happy You Stack and the Sentiment Stack II die set.

I started by creating the background by die-cutting the 3 layering dies –> Modern Geometric A2 Coverplate IModern Geometric A2 Coverplate IIModern Geometric A2 Coverplate III on some Neenah solar white card stock.  I stacked them up using liquid glue and adhered on an A2-size notecard.

Next, I die-cut the beautiful flowers and leaves using the Perfect Petals Layering Dies with different colors of card stock.  I adhered the small flowers and leaves on the card with liquid glue, then foam-mounted the bigger flower for added dimension.  

I finished the card design by stamping the sentiments from the Happy Me, Happy You Stack with the Watermark Ink on some black card stock.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  I die-cut the sentiments all at once using the Sentiment Stack II die set.  It is so convenient to have a few sentiment strips on hand using the combo.  I adhered the sentiment on the card and added some yellow-toned flat back pearls to finish the design.

I hope I have given you some inspiration today to create something beautiful.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by, and have an amazing day!
