No Stamping Cards with Ephemera
Posted on February 21 2022
There's a new release from LDRS Creative and I'm using some of my favorite products to make two quick and easy no stamping cards!
I love creating quick and simple cards. I'm a working mom and I don't have a lot of time to sit down and do a lot of fancy coloring. That's why my cards are always so simple! I love the new February 2022 Collection because I didn't even have to pull out a single stamp set or ink pad to create these two beautiful cards!
Let's start with quite possibly the easiest card I've ever made! I used products from the Lovely Watercolor Collection - papers, ephemera, and some enamel dots are all I need! Doesn't it look like I put a TON of work into that paint spatter background? I didn't! It's from the Lovely Watercolor 6x6 Paper Pack. All I did was cut it with the largest die from the A2 Diagonal Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set!
I pulled together my focal piece from the Lovely Watercolor Ephemera Pieces Pack. I love that notebook style tag! I used a mix of liquid adhesive and foam tape to add layers of ephemera on top of each other for dimension and then added the whole piece to my card with foam tape. I added some Lovely Watercolor Enamel Dots around my tag for an extra pop of something special!
My second card is a bit more involved, but still quite simple! I used the new Pretty Things Coverplate I and Pretty Things Coverplate III Dies and layered them together to add some extra texture to my background. I am LOVING these coverplate dies! You can use each of them individually or layer them together for endless background possibilities! I chose a patterned paper from the Lovely Watercolor 6x6 Paper Pack and layered it behind the Pretty Things Coverplate Dies so that the purple pattern would peek through.
I used more of the Lovely Watercolor Ephemera Pieces and layered them together on top of a green patterned tag. I had the flower pieces left over from a previous project and they worked PERFECTLY! I added a banner on top with foam tape and tied some twine through the top of the tag and finished off the card with some Lovely Watercolor Enamel Dots.
That's it! Two quick and easy no stamping cards! All of these products are new from the LDRS Creative February 2022 Collection! Happy shopping!
