Clawdia Cat

I’m over on the LDRS Inspiration blog with one of my cards from the LDRS Creative 2017 CHA Sneak Peek. This card features Clawdia Cat from Art-Z which is a stamp set with coordinating dies. I knew right away that I wanted to color this image as a china cat, so I used shades of blue to highlight the details and features. This fancy fold card is 6 in. x 6 in. so the layout gave me plenty of room to add a sentiment from the Art-Z Penny Peacock stamp set. I used foiled paper to add a little bling to the card and make this handsome feline really shine.

Sweatshirt Saturday

Happy New Year! Hope you had a wonderful holiday. I’m ready to get back to some serious coloring and papercrafting. Today I’m over at the LDRS Inspiration blog with my latest card featuring this sweet image from Saturated Canary available in the LDRS Creative online store. I have to admit that this is my first SC image and it was fun to color.

How do you like the pointillism background? Well I have a confession – just as I finished coloring the image, I accidentally dropped my marker, leaving a big, blue splotch! So I covered it with lots of little dots in shades of blue and not only did it cover my mistake, but created a neat and subtle background.

Love the Weekend

I’m over on the LDRS Inspiration blog today with this fun and flirty stamp by All Dressed Up. I stamped the image on X-Press It Blending Card and colored the image using Copic markers. I cut the image layer using the Fancy Rectangles & Layers die set which is one of my favorite Creative Basics dies. I paired the image with coordinating papers from Lawn Fawn.

I have to admit that it was a nice change of pace from making Christmas cards!

North Woods Merry & Bright

Last week I was over on the LDRS Inspiration blog with another card using the North Woods stamp and die set from LDRS. This is a card that just evolved as I was putting it together. I did a lot of experimenting before I found two design papers in my stash that captured the wintery woodsy theme that I wanted, but also coordinated with each other.

Once I made the final selection, I cut one flag from each paper using the largest die in the Creative Basics Stitched Flags die set. I stamped the moose and trees on X-Press It Blending Card by Copic, colored them with copic markers, and cut them out using the coordinating dies that come with the North Woods stamp set. The front sentiment was a little tricky – the paper was shaped by cutting two ovals — one in white and one in green — using the Creative Basics Pierced Ovals die set. I used one of the smaller oval dies in the set to cut a swoop into the green oval and attached it to the white oval. I attached the moose with thin foam squares and tucked the die cut trees in behind the oval.

The inside of the card is pretty straight forward. The paper for the sentiment was cut using the Creative Basics Fancy Rectangles & Layers die set and adhered to the background paper.
