Everything Stops For Walkies

Today I’m on the LDRS Creative Inspiration blog with a card using one of the new images recently released at CHA and available to you in the coming weeks. The image is Everything Stops for Walkies by All Dressed Up and colored with Copic markers. These images are sweet and fun to color. I finished off the card with dies and an embossing folder from Creative Basics.

Spring Meadow Bouquet

I’m over on the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends blog today with my latest card featuring the Spring Meadow Bouquet digital stamp set from Power Poppy and a variety of dies and embossing folders from Creative Basics and LDRS Creative.

I’m slowly getting around to color Power Poppy images that were released before I became an Instant Gardener. Although it’s still January (barely), I’m looking forward to spring when I can start planning out my flower boxes. Yes – I’m a container gardener. We have a long narrow courtyard out back that we recently landscaped into an outdoor living space that we decorate with large containers of bright, beautiful flowers.

I’ve eyed this beautiful bouquet from Power Poppy for a long time. I love the delicate flowers and of course the bee! I decided to highlight a portion of it for my card.

This image is not as complicated as it looks – just do all of the same flower at the same time.

As always, ready made cards like this one are available in my Etsy shop. Stop by and take a look. You’ll make my husband happy – the shop helps to fund my craft habit!

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.
