Let’s Cozy Up with a Cuppa with LDRS Creative

The 2021 Fall/Winter Coffee Lover’s Blog hop is here and I have another card to share with you. I feel that LDRS Creative should have a presence in this hop. I have been a part of the LDRS Creative Design Team for quite awhile now and I truly LOVE every single product that they produce. You guys should familiarize yourselves about this company because they are AMAZING!

For my card today, I am showcasing the Cozy Cuppa stamp set and coordinating dies, Doodle Border 4×6 stamp set along with the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set that is part of the Pastry Pals Craft Kit and the Happy Fall 6×6 Paper Pad.

Here’s how I made this card:

  • Adhere the two border edge die-cuts to the card base with tape runner.
  • Add the focal image with liquid glue.
  • Finish the card design by adding the sentiment that was heat-embossed on black card stock.

Easy, peasy, right?! I really LOVE how this card turned out and I hope you do as well. The supplies I used are listed and linked below. Thanks for stopping by!


Pastry Pal Cuties with LDRS Creative

Hello and welcome back!  I am so excited to also be featured on the LDRS Creative Blog today, sharing TWO adorable cards, showcasing the Pastry Pals Craft Kit along with the Candy Counter 6×6 Double-Side Paper Pack.    I don’t know about you but when I saw this kit, I knew I just had to have it!  The images are too cute and you can use this kit all-year round.  The possibilities are endless! 

I started by stamping the images from the Pastry Pals Stamp Set on some Neenah solar white card stock with Raven Hybrid Ink.  I used my Stampendable Stamping Tool to get a nice impression of the images.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and die-cut them all out using the coordinating dies. Next, I die-cut the slimline panels a few times using the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set included in the kit with white and dark pink card stock.  I also used my pastel watercolor set to flick some colors on the card panel for added texture and interest. 

I adhered the pink frame on the white card panel and foam-mounted both on a slimline card base for added dimension.  I then lined up the images and evenly spaced them while adhering one-by-one with liquid glue.  I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Raven Hybrid Ink and coloring the letters using the same color of markers that I used for the cupcakes.  I also used some gold gel pen for the sprinkles! 

 Since I colored a lot of images from the Pastry Pals Craft Kit, I decided to make another card.   

 I used the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set from the kit to die-cut the decorative edges using some Neenah solar white card stock and the Candy Counter 6×6 Paper Pack.  I also used the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set to die-cut the patterned paper and adhered on an A2-size notecard. 

 Next, I foam-mounted the focal panel for added dimension and adhered the images with liquid glue.  I finished the design by stamping the sentiment with some Raven Hybrid Ink and colored the letters with alcohol markers.   

 Aren’t these images adorable?!  I am pretty sure this Pastry Pals Craft Kit will sell out soon just like the rest of the other kits so grab them now before they are gone! I hope you like my cards today and got inspired!  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!

Too Cute to Spook with LDRS Creative

Hello LDRS fans!  I’m back today with two VERY SIMPLE (but so ADORABLE) cards, showcasing the Trick or Treat 6×8 Pirouette Stamp Set along with the newest “must-have” stamping template called Pirouette Pattern Templates with some of the greatest hybrid inks –> RavenAlloyGrape Ape and In Your Face Orange.

This first card reminds me of one of my all-time favorite animated movie for Halloween.  Can you guess what movie that is?  Of course that was my inspiration creating this card. 

I started by positioning the Pirouette Pattern Master Template inside my stamping tool and taped it down with washi tape.  I position the spider web from the Trick or Treat 6×8 Pirouette Stamp Set in the center and closed the lid. I opened the lid again to place my card stock inside the stamping tool and stamped the spider web in the middle using Alloy Hybrid Ink.  I went on and positioned the stars and dots wreath and used Grape Ape Hybrid Ink.    

I repeated the process by stamping the images randomly on my card stock.  Next, I used some Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp the skull in the middle of the spider web.   I adhered this card panel on an A2 size notecard. and finished the card design by stamping the black ribbon and the sentiment with Raven Hybrid ink.  I just LOVE the intensity of this black ink, don’t you?! 

For my next project below, I used the Pirouette Patterns Template again to stamp the images on a 4×4 card stock.  This template makes it super easy to perfectly center your images on the card.  The lines really helped me position the images to create a seamless pattern.  I am warning you, it gets really addicting! Haha!

I started with a 4×4 card stock and stamped the spiderweb first with Alloy Hybrid Ink.  Next, I stamped the stars and dots wreath image using Grape Ape Hybrid Ink.  I positioned the ghost and stamped it with Raven Hybrid ink.  I colored the ghost with some alcohol markers for added dimension.  Then, I moved on by stamping the rest of the images with Raven and In Your Face Orange Hybrid inks.

Next thing to do is to mat the card on some orange and black card stock, then adhering it on some purple card stock measuring 4 3/4 by 9 1/2 folded in half, which makes it a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 notecard.  I finished my card design by stamping the words “Happy Hunting” with some Raven Hybrid Ink.  Here’s another look: 

I just LOVE using the Trick or Treat 6×8 Pirouette Stamp Set with the Pirouette Pattern Templates!  You can create endless design possibilities using both products!  For more project inspiration, please head on over to the LDRS Creative Blog or the LDRS Creative YouTube channel.    The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by today and happy stamping! 


A Friend Like You is One of a Kind

Hello LDRS fans!  Maria here with you on the blog today sharing this slimline card, showcasing the Garden’s Edge Slimline stamp set, along with the Garden’s Edge Coordinating die and the Honeycomb Cover Plate slimline die

I love sending some “just-because” cards to my friends and this beautiful floral stamp set is exactly what I needed.  I started by stamping the images on some Bristol smooth white card stock using Coffee Bean Hybrid ink.   What I love about the LDRS hybrid inks is the fact that you can use either alcohol or water-based markers and it will not smudge.  I colored the images in with some water-based markers.  I die-cut the colored image with the coordinating die. 

The Honeycomb Cover Plate slimline die was used to die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock and adhered with liquid glue on a slimline card base.  The focal image was popped up with foam adhesive for added dimension.  I stamped the sentiment on some black card stock using Watermark ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder to this and heat-set with my heating tool.  I fussy-cut the sentiment with my precision snips and adhered the same with liquid glue on the card. 

I finished my card design by adding some gold baubles for added interest.  Here’s another look: 

I hope I have given you some inspiration to create something beautiful today from the latest release.  The supplies I used are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by! 


2 Cards Featuring Tropical Floral SL Stamp Set & Stencils with LDRS Creative

Hello LDRS fans!  Maria here with you and I am back to share two cards with you, showcasing the Tropical Floral Slimline stamp set.  

For my first card, I decided to go easy, peasy!  After all, the Tropical Floral Slimline stamp set pretty much speaks for itself!  I don’t normally do a lot of “no-line coloring” but I made an exception for this one.  I really want the organic look of it.  I used my darkest marker to draw the lines and then blended it with my medium marker, and then light to color the images in.

One of the things I LOVE about LDRS Creative is that they take their time to not only provide us with some great quality products, but they also make sure to include a coloring sample at the back of each packaging!  This really made it easier for me to follow the lines, making sure I wasn’t messing up the whole stamp design.  No-line coloring is very challenging for me but with the help of looking at the sample from the packaging, things went pretty smoothly.

I added texture to this design by adding some bronzy, splatters using some metallic watercolor from my collection.  To do this technique, I wet the brush with some water and picked up the color from my watercolor palette and flicked the brush onto my card.  I waited for a few minutes to let it dry then adhered the focal panel on some A2-size notecard. 

I stamped the sentiment using some Raven Hybrid ink and added some dots on the flower with my white gel pen for added interest.  I finished my design by adhering some bronze pearls to the card. Here’s another look:

The next card looks complicated but trust me, it’s really easy!  I started by stamping the image using the Tropical Floral Slimline stamp set with some Coffee Bean Hybrid Ink.  Coloring the image was very easy because I used the Tropical Floral Slimline Layering Stencil Set with some Hybrid inks (colors mentioned below).  Let me tell you, this was a huge GAME CHANGER!  I love, love, love the layering stencils!   

For the Hibiscus, I layered Soft KissesFandango and Scarlet Rose.  The yellows are Banana Cream PieDan-D-Lion and Tangerine Dream. The greens are Pistachios-A-PlentyPrickly Pear Perfection and Evergreen.

I used the Tropical Floral Slimline coordinating die to die-cut the image.  I cut some Neenah solar white card stock measuring 5 1/2 X 4 1/4.  I added texture to this card stock by applying some metallix gel using the Plaid Stencil and palette knife.  I set this aside to let it dry for about half an hour and adhered the focal image with liquid glue.  

I added the foreground to an A2-size notecard.  The sentiment was stamped on some black card stock using watermark ink and white embossing powder, and adhered onto the card with liquid glue.  The last thing I added to this card was the gold pearls to finish the design.  

Which card is your favorite?  I simply cannot pick one.  They are two different techniques but I love how both cards turned out!  I hope you like them too.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thank you so much for stopping by today and happy stamping!


Sending Birthday Hugs & Wishes with LDRS Creative

I am back today to bring you another inspiration, showcasing some new and older stamp sets and dies by LDRS Creative.  Lately, it seems like I’m always running out of birthday cards so I decided to create one to add to my stash of cards. 

To make the card, I die-cut some Neenah Solar white card stock using the outer die from the Floral Foliage Slim Line die set.  I ink-blended this panel using the Magical Skies Stencil (hills & sky) and the Rainy Day stencil (grass), with the Swimming Hole and Pistachios-A-Plenty Hybrid Ink

Next, I stamped the images from the Up & Away Stamp Set with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored them in with alcohol markers.  I used the Up & Away coordinating dies to die-cut them out.  I adhered the images on the focal panel with liquid glue, as I didn’t think it needed any dimension. 

Next thing to do is to add a sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment/s from the Happy Birthday Sentiment Stack stamp set on some black card stock with the LDRS Watermark ink.  I sprinkled some LDRS White Embossing Powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  Using the Sentiment Stack Coordinating Dies made it possible to die-cut all of the sentiments in one go!  I saved the rest of the sentiment strips and put them inside my stamp pocket so I can use them for future projects! 

I adhered the sentiment onto the card, and added this focal panel on some White Slimline card base.  Finishing the card design, I added more interest to the balloons using white gel pen. Here’s another look: 

I love the colorful balloons and the cute little elephants flying up, up & away!  The magical sky just added that whimsical touch to the overall card design. 

I hope you like this card as much as I do.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks for stopping by and have an amazing day!


Mother’s Day Card with LDRS Creative

Hello LDRS Creative fans! I have a simple slimline card to share with you today, just in time for the upcoming Mother’s Day (or just-because), showcasing the Magnolia Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies with the Chloe Alpha Lowercase Die SetFloral Foliage Slimline Die Set.

I started by stamping the images on some Neenah Solar White card stock using Raven Hybrid Ink, and die-cut the images with the Magnolia Coordinating Dies.  I colored them in with alcohol markers. To create the background, I die-cut the Floral Foliage Slim Line Dies on some Neenah Solar white card stock and foam-mounted this on some beige slimline card base.  I wanted the white die-cut to stand out against the beige background.  I also foam-mounted the Magnolia flowers on the card for added dimension. 

The last thing to do is to add the sentiment.  The new Chloe Alpha Lowercase Die set is so beautiful and perfect for the soft look I was going for on this card.  I die-cut the word “mom” on some Neenah solar white card stock and just to give it a little more interest, I used the Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink with a blending brush to color half of the letters.  This gave it an ombre effect.  I foam-mounted the die-cuts on the card for added dimension, giving it more of a unified look!   

You really need to check out the new release! I absolutely LOVE all the new stamps, dies and stencils at the shop.  I’ve listed and linked them below if you’d like to purchase them.  Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Mother’s Day this Sunday, to all the moms out there!


Two Cards Featuring Friends Like You with LDRS Creative

Hello LDRS fans!  Maria here with you today to share two “Just-Because” cards, showcasing the Friends Like You Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies, along with one of my favorite die called Pretty Patterns Slim LineIn the Grass Die Set with the Plaid Stencil and Rainy Day Stencil

My first card below is very simple.  I stamped the image on some Bristol smooth white card stock using Iced Tea Hybrid Ink and colored them in with watercolor.  I die-cut the image using the Friends Like You coordinating die set

Next, I colored the Neenah solar white card stock and using a blending brush and Marina Madness Hybrid Ink.  I added some texture and interest to the foreground by using the 6×6 Plaid Stencil, white texture paste and palette knife.  I set this aside to let it dry for about half an hour. 

I cut the grass using the In the Grass Die Set and Daisy Delights 6×6 paper.  Also cut the gingham pattern strip from the Farmer’s Market 6×6 paper pad and adhered both pieces to the foreground.  The black and white strip was cut using the LDRS packaging.  I adhered the image with liquid glue and added this piece to an A2-size notecard. 

I finished the design by stamping the sentiment using Watermark Ink on some black card stock.  I sprinkled some White Embossing Powder and heat-set with my heating tool.  Adhered this piece on the card with my ATG gun.   Here’s another look: 

The images on the second card were stamped with Raven Hybrid Ink on some Neenah solar white card stock and die-cut using the Coordinating Dies.  I die-cut some Neenah solar white card stock and dark purple card stock using the Pretty Patterns Slim Line Die Set.   

I added the grass and clouds by using the Rainy Day Stencil and hybrid inks in Dan-D-LionSoft Kisses, and Prickly Pear Perfection. I adhered the little critters on the foreground with liquid glue and added this piece on a lavender slimline card base.  I finished my design by stamping the sentiment with Raven Hybrid Ink.
