Mix and Match Your Favorite Stamps - LDRS Creative

Hi ya everyone!  I want to share a little Valentine's Day card I made using a number of fabulous LDRS Creative products.  I have to say, my favorite thing to do is use my stamps in combination with other great stamps.  I was going through all my gorgeous LDRS Creative stamps and found three sets I wanted to use today, Happy FallCloud No. 9 and Beautiful Blooms.  
I started by stamping the adorable rabbit and mouse from Happy Fall in my LDRS Creative Raven Hybrid Ink.  I then took the balloons from Cloud No. 9 and stamped them close to each the rabbit and mouse, again in Raven Hybrid Ink.  How cute that both critters got each other balloons?
Next, I took my fine tipped marker, and extended those balloon strings to reach each animal.  I added a few curly ques to match the already drawn string.  I also colored the stamps in one of my favorite watercolor mediums, zig clean watercolor brush markers.  
Then I used my Eyelet Lace Rectangle Die Set to cut out this adorable scene.  I used the plain and simple rectangle die that comes in the set.  Next, I cut a piece of the gorgeous LDRS Creative 6x6 paper Sincerely Yours using the eyelet die that comes in the set.
I adhered my striped die cut paper to an A2 size card base, then adhered my rectangle die cut scene to the card.  Last, I stamped a sentiment from Beautiful Blooms stamp set in Raven Hybrid Ink as it went with this cute scene perfectly.
I hope you enjoyed today's Valentine's Day card!  Make sure to join us each day for new tutorials and creations that are meant to inspire you.

I Only Howl for You


Hi ya everyone!  Well you know I'm on a huge Picket Fence Studios stamps right now and these foxes are just too cute!  The set is called Like a Crafty Fox, and I love how whimsical and playful these foxes are.  I colored them in my Copic markers on Hammermill paper. 


I used Gina K card stock Fresh Asparagus to drop the front on.  I also stamped some adorable little paws in Versafine Clair and then added clean and clear enamel dots from Waffle Flower.

Hello from LDRS Creative

Hi ya everyone!  I'm sharing this adorable stamp from Polkadoodles called Hanging Out.  I love when an image is enough for a card and you don't need anything extra!  This stamp totally fits the bill.
Simply put, I stamped the adorable image with Raven Hybrid Ink on a water safe paper.  I then used my watercolor pens to paint the image.  You can use any of your favorite mediums with LDRS Creative Hyrbrid Ink too!  Here's a close-up.
Such a sweet image to color.  It's fabulous for a beginner too, as it has a lot of fine detail.  After coloring I simply stamped a sentiment from the Beautiful Blooms set in Lipstick Jungle Hybrid Ink.  
I then added the watercolored image to my pink card stock and then to my card base and DONE!  Seriously, how simple is that.  The image does all the work.
I hope you enjoyed today's Valentine's Day card!  Make sure to join us each day for new tutorials and creations that are meant to inspire you.  We have multiple places you can find us too!  Make sure to join our Facebook GroupInstagram page and YouTube!  You will love the design team projects and video tutorials.

Hi ya everyone!  Today I decided to go outside of the normal and stamped this adorable The Greeting Farm stamp, With Love set repeatedly in a background.  I purchased them at 7Kids.  I also added the cutest little fairies from the set too!  How adorable are they?? 
The entire card was colored in Copics.  I mounted the colored card on a piece of red cardstock and called it good.  The coloring is really the star here!

Vitamin Sea - Picket Fence Studios


Hi ya!  I have another adorable Picket Fence Studios card I'd like to share with you today using their A Dose of Vitamin Sea set and coordinating dies.  They just came out with another set that has narwhals and I might have to pick that one up too. 

For this card I watercolored the background with Prima Classics.  I then stamped my small fish and sentiment in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  I colored the whales in my Copics.

I have to tell you, I used a new product that Imagine will be releasing very soon that you are going to love.  It gave a beautiful even shine to my whales that I LOVE.

A Hug Just for You!


Hi ya everyone!  I wanted to play with some of my awesome new stamps from Picket Fences Studios.  This adorable set is called I am A Hugger.  I ordered these cuties from 7 Kids Craft Store and received them so fast!!! Love when a company sends things fast. 

I colored these little ones in the following Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13
Dress/Hats:  YG61, YG63, G46 and V01, V12, V15
Dots:  Colorless Blender

I then cut out the images with a stitched circle die from Lawn Fawn.


I took a black piece of cardstock and stamped with my VersaMagic Chalk Ink - Pretty Petunia and Aloe Vera succulents from SugarPea Designs. I love this ink for stamping on black!  It shows up and only needed stamped once.  I also colored a banner with my Copic YG61 and stamped my sentiment with Versafine Clair Nocturne.

You Make Me Happy!

Hello everyone and Happy New Year!  Now that Christmas is over, I couldn't wait to get started on my Valentine's Day Cards.  I absolutely LOVE the Beautiful Blooms stamp set and could not WAIT to create something lovely with them.  Because there are so many beautiful flowers in this set, I decided to go simple and just use the large bouquet.  
This is such a simple card as I love easy sometimes and the real fun was watercoloring the image.  First, I stamped the flowers in LDRS Creative Hybrid Ink Raven in opposite corners of watercolor paper.  I then painted the flowers with watercolor paint.  I allowed that to dry.  
Last, I adhered the watercolored blooms to the beautiful black and white polkadot from the 6x6 paper pad called Sincerely Yours.  I added some clear embellishment glue and was finished!
I hope you enjoyed today's beautiful yet simple card!  Make sure to join us each day for new tutorials and creations that are meant to inspire you.  We have multiple places you can find us too!  Make sure to join our Facebook GroupInstagram page and YouTube!  You will love the fabulous projects this design team creates.

Merry Christmas from Owl of Us!

Hi ya everyone! I love the versatile stamp set called Arctic Snowfall from LDRS Creative. It has owls and foxes and great sentiments.  I paired it with the new Build A Card Die set called Garden Escape and the beautiful Holiday Paper from LDRS Creative.  This particular set is out, but you still have time to purchase the beautiful Country Christmas and Gnome for Christmas.
First, I cut white card with the smallest shape of the Garden Escape Build a Card Die Set.  I cut that in two and adhered it to the holly paper cut to 3.75 x 5 inches.  I then stamped the adorable Owls and sentiment in LDRS Creative Raven Hybrid Ink.  I colored the owls with my colored pencils.
I then adhered this to a piece of red card stock cut to 4 x 5.25 and placed on an A2 card base.  I used the extra holly paper to cut out a few of the adorable holly and adhered them on the branch the owls are sitting on.  
I also cut out an extra Garden Escape die and used just the corners on the bottom of my card.  Last, I added some red sequence.
I hope you enjoyed today's card!  I can't believe the beautiful inspiration this month at LDRS Creative.  You must take a looksy at all of December's Countdown to Christmas.  The design team has really created some fabulous designs.  Make sure to join us on FacebookInstagram and YouTube.  Have a very Happy Holidays!

Christmas Tags - LDRS Creative

Hi ya everyone, I'm here to share some adorable tags I made using the new and adorable Hot Chocolate Stamp Set.  I thought I would show you my step by step process. 
First, I die cut the tags using the new Eyelet Lace Rectangle Die Set.  I used the tag and rectangle both as I wanted to have a layered tag look.
I then used the beautiful Swimming Hole Hybrid Ink to stamp the snowflakes from the Hot Chocolate Stamp Set.  You can purchase the large ink pad or the small in the County Fair pack. 
Next, I stamped the girl from the stamp set in Raven Hybrid Ink.  I used my alcohol markers to color her.  I chose pinks and blues that match the Arctic Snowfall paper from LDRS Creative.  This pack is sold old, but the beautiful Country Christmas and Gnome for Christmas pads are available and SOOOO cute!  I stamped the sentiment in Raven Hybrid then popped up the girl on foam dots.
I lined up this tag with the rectangle about where I wanted it to tie together.  I wanted to leave the tag loose from the rectangle.  I marked the hole from the tag on the patterned paper and hole punched that spot.  You can see the mark below.
After I punched the hole, I tied them all together with twine to create three gorgeous and bright tags for the holidays!  
I simply LOVE the way these tags turned out.  I'd like to make all of my present tags with this die set!  The tag layers so beautifully on the rectangle. The small eyelets really dress up the tags as well.  A simple but gorgeous touch for sure!

Simple Blessing with Gorgeous Paper!

Hi ya everyone! I'm super excited to show you a simple card I created using my new favorite fall paper pad, Happy Fall from LDRS. 
 
It's so easy to make a quick and simple card with this gorgeous vibrant paper!  Also, this pad has a bit of a gloss to it, which I love because if you get adhesive to the front, it's easy to just roll off!  It also adds a beautiful something special.
I colored these two cuties from the Happy Fall Stamps.  I think this is a must have for cute fall cards!  Again, simple and easy to color, which I did with my alcohol markers.  Then I stamped the sentiment that comes in the set with black ink.
Super cute, right?  So easy too!  I'm currently in the middle of moving, but with this paper and stamp set, I find it so easy to create a card in a short amount of time.
I hope you enjoyed this fun fall card and you are inspired to create simple and easy creations during this BUSY time of year!
