Time for a Coffee Break

I’m over on the LDRS Creative Inspiration blog today with a recent project featuring one of stamps that debuted last month at Creativation. This image is from All Dressed Up called Time for a Coffee Break will be available soon in the LDRS store.  These images are perfect for a clean and simple (CAS) layout. I added a burst of color with a bright red die cut using one of my go to die sets:  Basic Cutting Edge Borders I by Creative Basics.

Hope you found some crafty inspiration in my project!

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.

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!

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.
