LDRS Creative's New Release ~ Let Love Grow

Hi Friends,

I am popping in here to share with you a new card which includes 3 of the upcoming release from Little Darlings rubber Stamps. These products were released at CHA in January but have not arrived in the store just yet so stay tuned as you will NOT want to miss these great products.

I am using Country Friends 6x6" Paper Stack as my background paper here. I just love the quilted look of this paper. My favorite color is purple so this is a big hit in my craft room!!
Along with the paper stack I have used two other brand NEW products. The dies are from the "Build a Card Heart Felt" die set, and the sentiment came from the "Let Love Grow" stamp set by Cre8tive Cre8tions. These sets will be available in the online store very soon. I just love how all of our products work so nicely together. This simple card is perfect for Valentines Day!
I hope we have inspired you today and that you have crafty fun soon!

LDRS Creative ~ CHA Release!

Hi Friends,

I am super EXCITED about today's card.  These are BRAND NEW CHA released products. I am absolutely loving this BUILD A CARD Heart Felt die set. This is a one of a kind set and includes 9 pieces/dies including the flower dies I have used here on this project.

I love how this set includes not only the outer card shape but also includes one front piece that is slightly smaller to allow for easy layering. Also make sure to look at the edge detail on this card. The stitching makes it even more defined.

I have colored this stamp from the brand new Cre8tive Cre8tions Designs stamp set titled "Let Love Grow". This set includes 15 stamps including this really detailed girl image as well as floral stamps and sentiments. 

The paper I have used here is  from the TLC Paper Crafting line and is called "Cotton Candy"

Make sure to check out the brand new released items including stamps, dies, and papers.

My Favorite Things Color Challenge 84 ~ Mermazing

Hi Friends,

I have been playing lately with some of my much loved stash of items and I decided to check out some of my favorite stamp companies to see if there were any fun challenges to participate in. I have just begun my "collection" of MFT products so I thought I would play along with their current color challenge.

At first look at these colors I was not inspired at all....but that is why they are called "Challenges" right? So I looked through my stamps to find a set that would work with blues and oranges and as soon as I saw my new My Favorite Thing's stamp set titled "Mermazing". I knew this would be a perfect set. 

The two die sets I used were Blue Prints 13 & Stitched Round Rectangle Frames. With the frames I cut 3 and glued them together to create a framed look.

 For the coloring I have used Copic markers in the following color combos:

Skin: E000,E00,E11,E21, R20
Hair: E13, E15, E19
Clothing including tail: YR12, YR14, YR15, B16, B18, B37
Water: B16,B14 B18,
Sand: E30,E31,E33

LDRS Creative ~ Polkadoodle's Winnie Fairy Sparkle

Happy New Year My Friends,

This is my very first post of the New Year and I hope your year has started out peacefully.

Today I am sharing an adorable "Fairy" stamp from LDRS Creative with all of you. This is "Winnie Fairy Sparkle" by Polkadoodles.

This A2 sized card features two papers from the Polkadoodles Daisy Daisy 6x6" paper stack. Since I only had a small scrap piece of the striped paper left I decided to get creative with it. See below.

I cut the scrap piece into 6 equal strips to make it look as if it was longer pieces than it was. Then I disguised it by covering it with the matted stamped image. I felt like this gave a little added interest all while using all of the beautiful paper.

Below is a close up of my colored image. The color medium I have used is Copic Markers.

Isn't she just precious? Below are the exact Copic color combos that I have used here.

Skin: E000, E00, E11, E21, R20
Hair: YR20, YR21, YR24
Clothing: R20, R22
Wings: YG11 & Wink of Stella
Bear: E30, E31

Here is one last shot of my full card. 

I hope I have inspired you today and that your enjoy a day of creativity! Love, Melanie

Elizabeth Craft Designs Monthly Challenge ~ Backgrounds

Hello Friends,

Today I am sharing a really fun birthday card made from some really adorable Elizabeth Craft Designs' Dies. This card is for our Monthly Challenge over on the ECD Challenge Blog. Check it out for your chance of winning this weeks gift card.

This card was both simple and really fun to make. I absolutely love these new stamp & die cut sentiments. Gives you so many options with one stamp die duo. I love ways to make my money go farther and these fit that and then some.... We actually have two different coordinating sentiment sets like this now so make sure to check them both out.

Designers Tip: Since the stamps are clear I found it much easier to die cut the dies out first then to stamp straight down onto the pre cut piece of card stock. Here is a close up so you can see all the detail...
