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!

Joy to the World with LDRS Creative

Hello everyone! I am glad to be back today to share some inspiration and I am also up on the LDRS Creative BlogI Does anyone else love mixing and matching their stamp set and dies?  I do!  I love mixing and matching stamp sets to create a unique card for a certain occasion.

I started by die-cutting two panels of some Neenah solar white card stock using the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set.  I adhered the bigger panel to an A2-size notecard.  The smaller panel was inked up using a Blender Brush, with the Plaid 6×6 Stencil and Alloy Hybrid Ink.  I foam-mounted this panel on the card for added dimension.

Next, I stamped the images from the So Thankful and Country Corner Accessories Stamp Sets with Raven Hybrid Ink.  This is my favorite ink to use to stamp my images.  I colored the images in with alcohol markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I adhered the Christmas Tree to the Red Truck with liquid glue and foam-mounted both images on the card front for added dimension.

I stamped the sentiment from the Christmas Wishes stamp set on some black card stock with Watermark Ink.  I sprinkled some white embossing powder and heat set with my heating tool. Next, I used the Wave Ribbon Stack Die Set to cut them all out.  I love using this stamp set and die combo!  You get to stamp it at one go and have a bunch of sentiment strips to be used for future projects! Such a genius idea!  I adhered the sentiment on the card using liquid glue.

I finished my card design by adhering some gold baubles on the Christmas Tree and Stickles to the star, for added texture and interest!  Here’s another look at the card:

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!
