Love You With All My Heart with LDRS Creative

Hello there and Happy New Year’s eve!  Maria Russell here on the blog with you sharing a cutesy valentine’s card, showcasing the Panda Play stamp set and coordinating dies, along with the Down Main Street Border dieRainy Day stencilDie-licious 6×6 paper padAnytime Stack stamp set and Sentiment Stack die set.
To begin, I stamped the Pandas on some Neenah Solar White card stock with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored the images in with alcohol markers.  I used the coordinating dies to die-cut the images.
On another panel of Neenah Solar White card stock, I used the Rainy Day stencil and Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink to create the clouds.
Next, I die-cut the little houses using the Down Main Street Border die.  I covered the holes with yellow card stock to create the illusion of lights coming through, and colored some of the parts with alcohol markers.  I foam mounted this piece on the background for added dimension.
The stripe border is from the LDRS stamp packaging.  I keep a few of these stripe borders in a ziplock so I can use them for my cards as accents here and there.  I also added the black strip of card stock to ground the little houses.  Next, I cut a strip of the beige card stock from the Die-licious 6×6 paper pad and adhered to the card using my ATG tape runner.
I foam-mounted the pandas for added dimension and covered the hearts with glossy accents for added texture and interest.  I finished my design by adding the Anytime Stack stamp set and Sentiment Stack die set.  Here’s another look at my card:
Who else is thinking about Valentine’s now?  I hope you like my card today.  The supplies I use are listed and linked below.  Thanks so much for stopping by and have a Happy New Year!

Uplifting Cards | Up & Away | LDRS Creative

Hello LDRS fans!  Maria Russell here with you and I am so excited to share my first post for LDRS Creative!  For today’s cards, I am showcasing the Up & Away stamp set and coordinating dies with the Slim Line Scallop die, the Love Stack stamp setSentiment Stack coordinating die, Rainy Day stencil, and Playful Patterns stencil.  I also used the Raven,  Prickly Pear PerfectionPink Tutu and Swimming Hole hybrid inks.  They are amazing!

The first card was ink-blended using the Playful Patterns stencil and Pink Tutu hybrid ink.  I wanted a subtle background against the cute elephant being carried away by the balloon.  The sentiment and the hearts were stamped using some Raven hybrid ink.  Here’s a closer look:


I love the images and sentiments from the Up & Away stamp set.  I think we all need these type of cards in our stash to cheer someone up, who is having a bad day!



For my second card, I cut a panel of Bristol measuring 8 1/2 x 3 1/2.  I ink-blended this panel using the Rainy Day stencil to create the grass with Prickly Pear Perfection hybrid ink.  For the clouds, I used the Swimming Hole hybrid ink.


The scallop border was die-cut using one of my favorite dies, the Slim Line Scallop die set.  This set contains 8 dies that you can use to create your cards.

The sentiment came from the Love Stack stamp set and die-cut using the Sentiment Stack coordinating die.  I love that this die cuts out a bunch of sentiments in one go!  Such a brilliant design!


 I also have a process video of my cards today if you’re interested.



I hope I have given you some inspiration to create something beautiful today!   Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!  Happy stamping!
