Teacup Full Of Wishes


Hello friends today I'm featuring Teacup full of Wishes stamp along with some LDRS Dies. 
With the combination of both I created this versatile card for many occasions.


 


I colored my Rubber stamp with Copic markers and cut her out with the Creative Basics Fancy Rectangle & Layers die.


 

I then mounted her on this intricate elegant cut using Polkadoodles Regal Frame in a mint Aqua cut and gave them dimension so they could stand on their own very nicely and set each cut apart.

My base is Time For Tea 6x6 paper pad .... I used two different sheets. One for the pop of color and the other to simply neutralize my image and my design paper and blend it all in so nicely.



 


I cut some hearts from Polkadoodles Dotty Doily with sparkly red paper and adorn around my image and card.

Finished it off with a silk lush red bow. The ideas for this card are endless and can be used for many occasions.
Feel free to pick her up and give her a try at the LDRS Store.
All the items used are listed for you down below and linked directly to the product.


have a sweet day and I'll see you soon

I Brought The Cake


Hello I'm back with you today to share some more of the NEW Polkadoodles Time For Tea 6x6 design papers and this sweet




I colored my image with artist markers and simply fuzzy cut her out



I played with many LDRS creative dies to give dimension to my card and I used the pretty NEW Polkadoodles Time for Tea 6x6 papers... let me just say they're super super beautiful. I adore the colors and patterns. They coordinate so nicely with the images.



I have a line of dies that went into use to create my card. For my base I used Creative Basics Grace Build-a-Card Die kit. That created my white clean base with a beautiful trim circle. Then I layered all my die cuts with dimension tape.
Finished with a gold trim bow for a contrasting color. I hope I have inspired you today and get you creating. You could find the list of dies down below that went into use.
Have a wonderful day

DollHouse Gwen

Hello I'm back on LDRS Creative Inspiration today with a fun card using DollHouse Gwen  and some beautiful Creative Basics Dies 


I created a sweet Circle card using Creative Basics Grace Build-A -Card die set.
for my base of my card. I used a few cuts form the Allifair Build-A-Card like the dragonflies,clouds and the tiny cut flowers.


My stamp was cut out using Creative Basics Fancy Rectangles and Layers die and mounted on foam tape.


I am Roses is sponsoring us this week over Passionate Paper Creations on FB  and all these beautiful flowers cascading my card come from there. You find a variety of gorgeous flowers!

Gwen comes from the DollHouse Collection and she is one of my favorites to color. I don't know if it's her big eyes or the hair but I keep coming back to her. You could find her in the LDRS Creative store at a very good price. 
These are a few times I've colored her.

Today I'm showcasing her in artist markers





this other time she was done with markers as well 


and this one here was watercolored


I hope you enjoy my card today and have you inspired

ADU Girl Can't Have Too Many

Hello Welcome back to my creative corner.

Yes.... I've been MIA SIGH...
I've been overloaded with my children's curricular activities. I have a busy schedule of soccer and baseball games then you have the Chicago Cubs games lol!
 I think I've been to four games already and the season just started! I know I have another one schedule for the second week of May too, lol!
Anyhow I'm going to try to post once or twice a week to try to catch up.
Today I'm going to start  with a ADU CAS card .
 Using the precious A girl can't have enough stamp as my center focus and surrounding her with these beautiful articulate die cuts from Polkadoodles and TLC Expressions


I watercolored my stamp and then cut her out using the center of the the Polkadoodles Regal Frame.The beautiful intricate cut was used on the base for her and simply popped her on top. I used Polkadoodles Eleganza design paper for  a base. I tucked a Polkadoodles Scalloped Swag cut underneath and the Eleganza of this cut is unbelievably beautiful I tell you. Finished it off with a pretty sweet die cut sentiment... Literally. 
The TLC Expressions Word cuts are so easy and beautiful sentiments to finish up a project. 




I hope you enjoy my creation and please don't forget to stop by on our LDRS Creative Facebook page AND Instagram account for more inspiration and special perks.



Have a lovely day

You Mean The World To Me

Hello I'm back to share a little twist using Saturated Canary Thermal Weather. Along with a list of Creative Basic Dies and LDRS Creative dies.



I created a fun soft tag for Valentine's Day since it's coming up. I turned a winter theme stamp image into a Valentine's theme by simply adding hearts around her and with the help of my sentiment from the "You" Collection.


Now the Process ,First I colored her with watercolors then cut her out using the Creative Basic Fancy Rectangles & Layers.I tucked in die cuts behind her like the Gilded Doily and Dewdrop circle. Now using the dewdrop die I took the smaller circle and used that one to stamp my sentiment and mount it on top with 3D glue dots.
As You can see I double on my flags.I used the Creative Basic Stitched Flags and them used the Creative Basic Picnic Quilt Embossing folder to add texture to them both.


I tucked in some lovely Creative Basic Dotted Wings on top of the tag and one by my sentiment.
Lastly the bottom border was done using the Creative Basic Cutting Edge Borders I. Cutting out a few cuts and then layering them on top of each other for a dimensional effect. I really enjoy the way that looks.

I hope I inspired you to give this a try and thank you for stopping by.

Merry and Bright

Here is a card I forgot to share here lol! Last year actually :P 
 I'm showcasing a fun winter scene with North Woods Stamps and dies along with a few Creative Basic Products.
I had a fun idea to color in some spruce in my trees with artist markers and adding sparkly snow on them using a few products.
I did forget to add my glitter on my picture but pretty much any glitter of your choice works perfectly well.
Just mix in as much as you want to use and using your brush to layer on top were you desire.
In no time you will have trees full of sparkly snow 
I added a few drops of water just so I could bring it to a more thinner consistency because it was very chunky lol!
Lay them down with dimensional glue dots and had me a fun dimensional winter scene with lots of sparkle.
The bottom of my layer was cut out using Creative Basic Cutting Edge Borders I and I used my Creative Basic Picnic Quilt embossing folder for a sweet texture. It even looks like snow right! 
My sentiment comes from the Little Darlings CandiBean Merry Christmas Rubber stamp  kit exclusively at HSN. I used Basic Pierced Ovals to pop it right on top of my card.
The North Woods stamps come with coordinating dies so the ideas are endless in creating a simple sweet project or a full fun scenery card. 
I hope you enjoy my take on these stamps and we'll see you here again soon.
Well better late than never lol!
Your friend

Hello You

Happy New Year friends! I have the honor to share the first Inspiration post over LDRS Creative  using Chill from DollHouse and with a few LDRS Creative dies for a clean and simple card.


I did a quick picture by picture of my coloring process for Chill 
I watercolored her using Tim Holtz Distress Inks pads and Tombow brush pens and then easily fuzzy cut her out.



 I kept my card very basic and giving it an extra eye candy using the Creative Basic Picnic Quilt Embossing folder.
I simply cut out some strips after I embossed a sheet and added stitched flags at the bottom of the strips.

 I tucked in a "Hello You "sentiment using the You sentiment collection set.

I hope you enjoy my card and thank you all for stopping by my corner. I'm
looking forward to sharing my crafty bitz here for 2017!

XOXO

CandiBean Hand Picked For Hedgy

Hello friends yes I'm back with double post,  I'm  also featuring  CandiBean Hand Picked For Hedgy rubber stamp along with some fun LDRS Creative products.






I colored my CandiBean stamp image with Copic  markers and cut it out using the big die from the Creative Basic Fancy Rectangles & Layers. I simply mounted my image on a brown base paper using the beautiful elegant embossing folder Picnic Quilt.



I used the Summer Garden sentiment set which reads, "I imagined what my soul would look like and all I saw were flowers"
I about melted when I read this! Goes just perfect with my stamp image.

Have a lovely day


Nesting DollHouse Gatefold card

Hello friends double post today!

 We're going to start with  DollHouse Nesting Rubber stamp and Various beautiful LDRS Dies!



I started my process by coloring DollHouse Nesting with watercoloring markers and then cut her out using one of the large dies from the Creative Basics Fancy Rectangles &  Layers.





The Gate Fold card was my base and used my Creative Basic Picnic Quilt Embossing folders to give my doors some pretty texture.
I stamped You look Marvelous from the Uptown Sayings sentiment collection set on a Gilded Oval die cut. I then added pretty brown crystal drops to the top of the tag.
I like how you could play around with the dies and take them apart however you like.
Just like this Peaceful Dove Edge die.
I took the branches apart from the Doves then easily insert them to decorate around my my stitched flag cuts.




I added this pretty mint bow to finish it off and that was it.
I hope you enjoy this watercolored make an you could find all the products linked down below.

Look out for my next post in a bit :)

DollHouse Chilly Daze

Welcome all I have an LDRS Creative Inspiration post featuring a NEW DollHouse Rubber stamp Chilly Daze and a few LDRS Creative Dies!


I colored DollHouse Chilly Daze with watercoloring Tombow markers , Prima watercoloring pencils and TimHoltz Distress Ink pads. I get asked what are my go to mediums and I actually like to pull various brands and I have even pulled out my copics to color on watercoloring paper which I don't do often but it's ok I have plenty of refills :)
 I say that because sometimes watercoloring paper could suck in your ink and you tend to lay more to get to your desire depth.


I used the Best Friends sentiment collection set and simply tucked it in right next to her.
I took some gear die cuts and trimmed the corners in my card using the
Key tailed Dragonfly die set. 


I then cut her using Fancy Rectangles & Layers die. I used the bigger size up to cut a pretty border to surround her. I also cut some tags to create a border in the center with the same set.
My favorite piece is that GORGEOUS picnic quilt embossing pattern in the background.
Just puts everything together.


 I hope you like my creation. This one will be displayed at CHA 2017 show for LDRS Creative. 
Thanks fro swinging by love
