LDRS Creative: Impatiens all over the place!


Hey everyone!


I'm back here for LDRS Creative and I'm so excited to share one of my tricks with you, using a background stamp set!


When I first saw the Impatiens 6x6 stamp set, I have to admit I fell in love (sorry, hubby!). There are so many possibilities with this set! For today's card, I went simple, though.


I first stamped the set with Peachy Keen hybrid ink to get a no-line coloring effect when using alcohol markers. 

TIP: I found it easier to color in the dark areas for the backdrop first, and then to move on to the leaves, finishing with the actual flowers.



Once that was done, I cut the colored panel to fit an A2 cardbase (which I now would redo with the A2 Stitched Layered Cover Card Toppers die set) and without adding any dimension tape, it gave me a flat, one-layered card. Well, almost.


I did add foam behind the three little sentiment done with Raven hybrid ink and the Get Well stamp set, along with the Sentiment Stack die.


I hope you like it and will try the 

Impatiens 6x6 stamp set, too! You could divide the full background to create more cards out of one coloring session, emboss it in gold over dark cardstock, etc. Still plenty of ideas to go around!


Until next time, xxx

SugarPea Designs: Sweet Peek Hey Spring!

 Hello, all!

Wow, already Day Four with the Sweet Peek release at SugarPea Designs!

Today is all about the fabulous bear series and the new set called Hey Spring and its coordinating SugarCut. I loved pairing it with the SugarCut-Cover Plate Spring Scene Builder and the SugarCut-Picket Fence to create an A2 card that says "Let's Always Bee Friends".

I first started by stamping all the characters from the set and colored them with Copic markers. Once that was done, I diecut the whole thing with the coordinating set. Next, I diecut the Spring Scene Builder with solid cardstock and started playing with the different layers.

Foam tape was truly the key here!

I also forgot my sentiment but thankfully, the card fitted perfectly in my Mini Misti stamping platform.

And that was it, friend! Hope you like it :)

SugarPea Designs: Sweet Peek Take Me To Your Cake!

 Good morning!

Today is Day 3 of the new release at SugarPea Designs and I'm thrilled to share another project!

I used the Take Me To Your Cake stamp set and its coordinating SugarCut to create a cosmic card.

First, I started with Oxide inks and ink blended a panel that would set the tone for the card. To create the stars, I added some Frantage embossing powder by Stampendous and heat set under the project, or it would scatter everywhere. While that was drying, I stamped all the cutie aliens from the Take Me To Your Cake stamp set and colored them with Copic markers.

I used the SugarCut-Stitched Rectangles to diecut my background and then added all the bits and pieces with foam tape, for more dimension.

I finished the card with a sentiment embossed in white on black cardstock and that was it! Hope you like it as much as I do!
