You’re Simply the Best!

Today I’m over on the LDRS Creative Inspiration Blog with another project featuring the Daisy Daisy stamp & die set by Polkadoodles and Basic Cutting Edge Borders I by Creative Basics. I was inspired by a card that I saw on Pinterest (where else?!?) created by Linda Callahan that just seemed perfect for the Daisy Daisy stamp. I stamped the leaves and stem on X-Press It Blending Card by Copic and used the arched die from the Basic Cutting Edge Borders I to shape the cardstock. I stamped the flower on a separate piece of blending card and used the associated die to cut it out. When assembling the card, I used a small foam square to elevate the flower, giving the card some depth and dimension.

Everything Stops for Walkies

I’m over on the LDRS Inspiration Blog today with another project featuring the stamp Everything Stops for Walkies by All Dressed Up.

My cards lately have been really pared down in terms of a papers and embellishments. Then I saw this card by Faye Wynn-Jones and loved its simplicity. I knew that I had to try it for myself. The All Dressed Up stamps are perfect because for a CAS card because they really can stand alone as a simple, but elegant statement for a card front. Add a couple of sequins (pink of course) and make a fashion statement!

Daisy Daisy – Friends Like You Are Keepers

I’m over on the LDRS Creative Inspiration blog today with another project featuring recent releases now available from LDRS Creative. This project features:

Daisy Daisy Stamp & Dies from Polkadoodles
Sami Swan Stamp and Die Set (sentiment)
Allifair Build-A-Card Die Set by Creative Basics (die cut)

I added a layer of pale pink card stock to my card base as the background. I stamped the stem & leave stamp and one of the flowers from the Daisy Daisy Stamp & Dies set on Copic Express Blending Card and cut the flower using the dies in the set. The stem and leaves were colored with Copic markers. After trimming the blending card to size, I backed it with gold vellum. I used one of the dies in the Allifair Build-A-Card Die Set to create the fence die cut  and adhered it to the card. I used foam squares to adhere the image to the front of the card giving it some dimension.

For the inside, I layered the pink card stock and the gold vellum to my card base. I stamped one of the sentiments from the Sami Swan Stamp and Die Set on a piece of white Neenah 80# cardstock using Versamark ink.

The end result is a simple, but elegant card that would bright anyone’s day.

I’m over on the LDRS Inspiration Blog today with a new project created with new released available at LDRS Creative. Sometimes I challenge myself to create a card without using my Copic markers. This particular card was made entirely from patterned and coordinating solid papers and die cuts. I used red foil paper for the word die and the hearts for added interest.

Inspired Edge – Grow

Showing off a new card featuring some of the new products now available from LDRS Creative:

Dotty Doily Die Set by Polkadoodles

I colored the image with Copic markers using Copic X-Press It Blending Card. I usually design A2 cards (4.25 in. x 5.5 in.) but for this one, I bumped up to A6 (4.5 in. x 6.25 in.). I backed the front of the card with a design paper sheet from the Daisy Daisy 6×6 paper pack by Polkadoodles. I love this paper – the designs are colorful and cheery.

I backed the image with a coordinating solid green cardstock and attached it to my card base with foam dots to give it some dimension. I used the Dotty Doily Die Set to cut a paper doily which I then cut down to size and tucked in behind the image. The result is a simple card that is quick and easy to put together and color.

Hope my card gives you some craft inspiration!
