Smile!

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:

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!

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.

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!
