Christmas Cheer with Saturated Canary

Hello, I'm back with a Christmas scene using a Saturated Canary stamp "Parade" and some LDRS winter dies.

 It's my turn to share in the LDRS Creative Inspirational blog and this is my little Christmas cheer :)


I had a creative idea of using Parade in a scene by hand coloring a tree and whala she is now decorating her Christmas tree. The parade of animals pulling in their toys under the tree.
I watercolored my scenery with artist markers Tombow and Tim Holtz distress ink pads.
I can't get tired of coloring my SC images. Krista Smith art has always been my cup of coffee.

In case I never said it before... Love you, Krista Smith.





I used the NEW Christmas word die for my sentiment and tucked in the beautiful intricate Gilded doily die cut because it reminds me of a snowflake.
Let's not forget the Polkadoodles Winter paper pad.I couldn't pick a pattern sheet they're all so beautiful.





I tucked in the NEW Snowy Border die trim on the bottom edge. It added the nice depth to finish off my card.

I hope I gave you the inspiration to use your normal stamps and add anything winter for that perfect holiday touch. 
Add snow, a winter hat for example .... the ideas are endless. Enjoy guys :)

Have a wonderful day

Believe With Thermal Weather Saturated Canary Girl

Hello peeps I'm back with a Winter theme Easel card using Saturated Canary Thermal Weather and some marvelous cuts using the NEW Christmas Holly Wreath dies and Petal Wishes Accordian Die from LDRS Creative.



I started with coloring my Saturated Canary image with Copic markers and then cut her out using the circle from Holly Wreath. I adore the stitching that the die leaves all around the circle.



I then crowned her on top of the pretty Petal Accordion fan. This Petal is so stunning I can't get enough of it and I see me playing with this again very soon.
I tucked in some Holly leaves with a pastel green color stock and the Holly wreath circle as well.






  
the bottom base is adorned with a Believe stamp from the Holly Days Large Circle sentiments and adorned with pretty flowers and also tucked in some cuts of Holly leaves.
My papers for this card was using the utterly beautiful Polkadoodles 6x6 paper pack Winter Land. This paper has the perfect festive color tones and designs.





Thank You for visiting me and I'll be back here very soon. 

Have a lovely Day

Make It Crafty Buttons Halloween Fun

 Hello friends I'm back with a Halloween card featuring MIC Buttons digi with their fabulous chippies in combination of Creative Basic Dies by Rhea.
I always enjoy playing with Halloween images specially these cool MIC digis. 

I colored her with Copics and touched her up with Polychromos pencils



I wanted to layer the Fancy Rectangle Build A Card Die set cuts and wanted to use the big size as a layer instead of the card fold. I simply just cut through the stitched line and embossed line.



then just layered the both cuts


for my MIC Chipboard I colored it with my YGO6 Copic marker and added Nuvo Glow drops for dimension and glow in the dark effect.
I added a tiny bit on the dolls hair and this is what it looks like in the dark.

Lol! My corner droplets look like spooky eyes lol!






Thank you for stopping by and will be back soon.

NEW Creative Basics dies by Rhea

Hello I have a double share today... I'm excited to get to play with my friend Rhea's NEWEST die collection Creative Basics Dies by Rhea. I mean she's really making it easier for us cardmakers/ Crafters with all these smart shortcuts and fun cuts to play with. 
My first card I created was an Easel card using Fancy Rectangles Build a Card Die set and Half double stitched Circles.


As you can see it's hard to see where the dies went to play and that's why I took a picture of my base. I actually ended up adding a third tab on the front of the card and that's
 where I added my "This Way"sign and I have a ghost cut in the middle tab. The back tab is to hold the actual coloring image and the back base.


I used the following stamps 

C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Oct 31 Nora Rubber Stamp and 

C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Dragon Hansel Rubber Stamp 



I watercolored them with Marvy markers and TimHoltz distress ink pads





DIES USED FOR THIS EASEL CARD


ALL PRODUCT LINKS ARE DOWN BELOW

For my second card I created using Fancy Rectangles Build a Card Die set and Perfectly Layered Dotted Daisies


he was colored with COPIC Markers



I seriously loved playing with the flower die and giving it a awesome depth by layering different size cuts.

I hope you enjoy my cards and I'll be back very soon.

Teacup Full Of Wishes


Hello friends today I'm featuring Teacup full of Wishes stamp along with some LDRS Dies. 
With the combination of both I created this versatile card for many occasions.


 


I colored my Rubber stamp with Copic markers and cut her out with the Creative Basics Fancy Rectangle & Layers die.


 

I then mounted her on this intricate elegant cut using Polkadoodles Regal Frame in a mint Aqua cut and gave them dimension so they could stand on their own very nicely and set each cut apart.

My base is Time For Tea 6x6 paper pad .... I used two different sheets. One for the pop of color and the other to simply neutralize my image and my design paper and blend it all in so nicely.



 


I cut some hearts from Polkadoodles Dotty Doily with sparkly red paper and adorn around my image and card.

Finished it off with a silk lush red bow. The ideas for this card are endless and can be used for many occasions.
Feel free to pick her up and give her a try at the LDRS Store.
All the items used are listed for you down below and linked directly to the product.


have a sweet day and I'll see you soon

I Brought The Cake


Hello I'm back with you today to share some more of the NEW Polkadoodles Time For Tea 6x6 design papers and this sweet




I colored my image with artist markers and simply fuzzy cut her out



I played with many LDRS creative dies to give dimension to my card and I used the pretty NEW Polkadoodles Time for Tea 6x6 papers... let me just say they're super super beautiful. I adore the colors and patterns. They coordinate so nicely with the images.



I have a line of dies that went into use to create my card. For my base I used Creative Basics Grace Build-a-Card Die kit. That created my white clean base with a beautiful trim circle. Then I layered all my die cuts with dimension tape.
Finished with a gold trim bow for a contrasting color. I hope I have inspired you today and get you creating. You could find the list of dies down below that went into use.

DollHouse Gwen

Hello I'm back on LDRS Creative Inspiration today with a fun card using DollHouse Gwen  and some beautiful Creative Basics Dies 


I created a sweet Circle card using Creative Basics Grace Build-A -Card die set.
for my base of my card. I used a few cuts form the Allifair Build-A-Card like the dragonflies,clouds and the tiny cut flowers.


My stamp was cut out using Creative Basics Fancy Rectangles and Layers die and mounted on foam tape.


I am Roses is sponsoring us this week over Passionate Paper Creations on FB  and all these beautiful flowers cascading my card come from there. You find a variety of gorgeous flowers!

Gwen comes from the DollHouse Collection and she is one of my favorites to color. I don't know if it's her big eyes or the hair but I keep coming back to her. You could find her in the LDRS Creative store at a very good price. 
These are a few times I've colored her.

Today I'm showcasing her in artist markers





this other time she was done with markers as well 


and this one here was watercolored


I hope you enjoy my card today and have you inspired
