Here is Fabi and I am back sharing a new card. One of my fave things about our products is how versatile they are. You can create cards, tags, altered projects, scrapbook pages...your imagination is the limit :)

So, my first project today is a card using our dies, stamps, papers and washi tape.

My creative tip here is to create a card background, just like if it was a patterned paper. For doing this I stamped several times using 2 of our stamp and die sets:

* Daisy Daisy Stamps & Dies

* Eleganza Stamps & Dies

I used different light colours of stamp pads to create the background. Then I added some bright sequins to match those colors.

At the top of the card, I divided in two one sticker from the Soft Blush Washi Stickers, that created a little border for my card. The flowers on this card were made with the Dotty Doily Die Set and papers from the Soft Blush - 6x6 Paper Pack.

The cute sentiment stamped on my card was created mixing 3 stamps from our Follow the Blessed stamp set. This is an awesome set with 26 stamps so you can mix and create your own sentiments. Isn't it great?

Besides all of these products, on this card, I also used one die from our Basic Cutting Edge Borders I.

On our product line you have all you need to create awesome projects! 

Here is a picture of my final card.

Wish you all creative days!

XOXO

Fabi

I am showing you card created with one of the girls from the All Dressed Up stamp set. The girl has been coloured with Prismacolours.

The paper here is from the Daisy Daisy - 6x6 Paper Pack

The swirls has been created with a diecut from the Lock-Itz - Heart Bouquet die.

The back of the card has also been decorated. I have used a banner from the Fancy Rectangles & Layers Die Set. The black circle has been made with a die from the Hooty Owl - Stamps & Dies.

 

Hi Friends, DT Melanie here! Wow Kristen your project is beautiful....I love how you decorated the back of your card.

Today I have a unique card idea. I have used the TLC Inspired line for the stamped portion of my card. These stamps are created for bible journaling but can also be used in both card making and in scrapbooks. 
After coloring the stamp I played around with this design idea and came up with a mixture of LDRS products that all went together well.
LDRS Creative Products Used:
1. TLC Inspired Crafting "Inspired Edge Grow" stamps
2. Peaceful Dove Edge Die
3. Allifair Build a Card Die Set (for fence, clouds, and dragonfly)
My absolute favorite thing about LDRS Creative Products is that they are so versatile. For example; with a little trimming I was able to turn the Peaceful Dove Edge die to create the growing tree in my project and the fence etc from the Allifair set worked perfectly with this as well.
Have an awesome day my friends, Until next time... Keep Crafting! Melanie

Happy Saturday everyone! It's Rosie here today sharing this floral circular card using various products from the store. I've been seeing a lot of calligraphy inspiration on Instagram with floral circle frames and a calligraphy sentiment in the middle so I decided to create a similar effect using the stamps and dies from LDRS Creative.
I first stamped the flowers from the Polkadoodles Eleganza Stamps and Dies Set on some of the Polkadoodles Eleganza Paper with Versamark and heat embossed them in gold. After I cut them out with the enclosed dies, I added dots to the center of my flowers using two different yellow-colored sharpies. Next I grabbed some cotton swabs and added chalk to the petals.
 

 The circle card shape and the gold leaves were made using the Creative Basics Grace Build A Card Die Set. The "Marvelous" sentiment is from the Uptown Sayings Sentiment Set.

 The selection and variety of products have grown so you should definitely go take a look in the LDRS Creative Store, and grab all of your favorites! You're going to love them!


Hugs, 
Rosie

If so, you've probably seen many projects featuring the amazing collection called Splendid Azure from the TLC Paper products line. 
 
I created a quick-and-simple card using the Mama's Boy stamp set from the Saturated Canary line to go with it and even did a video to show you the whole process (with a glimpse at the products on top!). You can see the 6x6 Paper Pack, the Quick Words Stickers, the Tab Stickers and last but not least the Washi Stickers that I die-cut through with the Basic Pierced Ovals from the Creative Basics line.

Nancy here today with another clean and simple note card featuring:

Basic Background Builders I by Creative Basics
Hello - Word Die by TLC Dies

As you can see, this card was very easy to put together. I cut a piece of 110 # Neenah Solar White card stock at 4.25 inches X 11 inches and scored it at 5.5 inches so that I could see where the mid-line fold would be. I selected one of the dies from the Basic Background Builders I die set to create the textured background, lining the first row with the fold and then off-setting each successive row. I cut the sentiment from red card stock using the Hello - Word Die and adhered it to the front of the card. I embellished the card with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Midnight Blue. The result is an easy CAS card that can be completed in a matter of minutes.

Hope my project gives you some crafty inspiration!

Products used are:

TLC Inspired Edge Stamp

TLC Inspired Splendid Azure Washi Stickers

Splendid Azure Paper Pack

 

I just love these two TLC Inspired Edge Stamps.

To me, they look like they should be the door to a chapel.

So, that's what I've created. 

My TLC Inspired Edge Stamps are like the stain glass.

 

I stamped one on each side of the center opening card; 

directly on top of a piece from Splendid Azure Paper Pack 

Next, I've taken two different pieces of Splendid Azure Washi Stickers.

I had to add just a bit extra at each top end but they piece together

perfectly so I can't even see the piecing.

Now that's Splendid.

 

That finishes up my chapel.

 

See ya soon,

Dorinda

Thanks Dorinda!  That Faith Stamping work was Fantastic!  

I haven't been able to get crafty in a while, so today's special treat for my blog and the LDRS inspirations page is another Quick n Crafty You tube Tutorial!  

Have you seen the Newest die trend?  I've not seen anything like these dies!  The Lock-Itz dies!  They allow you to cut 1/2 of the design on each end of any size paper and then score them wherever you like (although there are directions on back for a standard A2 size card).

I've created one with the Cupcake Tower Die today and I snapped some shots while I cut and assembled it to show you just how quick and easy it can be!  Enjoy these dies!  They're super easy to use and a great deal of fun to design with!  

Step 1.  For A2 size use a paper that measures 12"w x 5.5"h and place dies cut side down on the side you want to show on the front at 1.75" inward from both ends with the design facing outward to the edge of the paper like above.

Step 2.  Run the die through your favorite die machine and it will cut the design out like above. 

Step 3.  Did I mention how beautifully these dies cut?  Woo Hoo!  Almost done.

Step 4.  In order to make the cut design POP, cut a few pieces of your favorite DP. Here I used a pretty sheet from the Splendid Azure 6 x 6 pad from the TLC Inspired Crafting line.  PSSST!  It's on SALE NOW!  25% off until the end of JUNE in honor of DAD's everywhere! 

Step 5.  Turn the card over and meet the edges of the paper in the center (or off to either side) and push the paper down and score where the fold occurs on each side of the card.  Once you've scored the edges, just pull upward on one side and slide the design together with the other side.  It will look like the above.

 

Step 6.  I cut the design again and cut ONLY the cupcake out of the Splendid Azure design paper and glued it onto the base design.  I added two strips of the Washi Tape you can find to match the paper in the store and then some glitter!  That's it!  It's a really quick and simple project!

Tracy here returning from a little break.  I am sharing with you today the image "Everything Stops for Walkies", combined with the Polkadoodles Eleganza Paper Pad.  I also add the Polkadoodles Scalloped Swag border across the border and top.

I used the FanTABulous die set to create the tag and added the TLC Inspired word "Hello".

Hope you like it :)

I also used: Dotty Doily Diet Set, and Daisy Daisy Paper Pack .

 

 

I cut out the peacock after I stamped it with the die that goes with it and makes it soo easy not having to cut it out yourself.  I also cut the peacock out from this Daisy Daisy paper pack finding a paper that will match what I want to color it. Then I taped it down, colored what I stamped and then popped it up so there was color under my image too. I also used one of the word sentiments that come with the Peacock set and stamped on it.

 

 

I cut out the Dotty Doily and put it here and then added flowers for an extra touch.

 

             

Thanks for stopping by.  Hugs to you!

Hello Welcome back this is Ruby from and that's all she wrote today I'm here with a fun tag using CandiBean "Have the Micest Day" rubber stamp and some Creative Basics dies came into the mix.

Oh and how about that Polkadoodles Eleganza Paper ... simply lush.

 

I watercolored my image and cut it out using the circle from Creative Basics Fancy Circles kit and adorned it  with the Polkadoodles Dotty Doily for a beautiful trimming. 

I layered the tag using Polkadoodles Eleganza paper and cut out a Creative Basics Stitched Flag for a base.

I was very clever on my sentiment lol! I used this sentiment that comes from another stamping kit the Go Wild Critter stamps & Dies. I felt that sentiment was perfect for these two. I cut out the sentiment using Creative Basics FanTaBulous die set and what I did was I flipped the die on both sides and created a fun design on both ends of the cut.

and finally I finished my tag cutting out flowers from left over paper and popped them through out my tag for a coordinating dimension.

Thank you for stopping by LDRS creative and I hope you enjoyed today's Inspiration.

DT Melanie here with you today sharing a really sweet card using some amazing products by LDRS Creative.
The paper and stamps are part of our TLC Inspired Crafting collection. I choose both the stamp set named "Magnolia Splendor" as well as the paper from the same collection called "Soft Blush"
Make sure to stop by the LDRScreative.com store to see all of the TLC Inspired Crafting coordinating collections.

 

Along with the above mentioned products from LDRScreative I also utilized the Dotty Doily Die Set by Polkadoodles. This breathtaking die set allowed me to create a beautiful doily that I was able to stamp and color on. I arranged all of the magnolia stamps from the Magnolia Splendor set and stamped them in the center of the doily. Then I colored them and added a little stickles to them to make them sparkle. Also from the Dotty Doily Die Set I also used the smaller dies to create these beautiful flowers. I have to say that was my favorite part. I inked their edges and added glitter to give them such texture. The sentiment I used was also part of the Magnolia Splendor set. It is a great set to have in your collection.

 

 

 

Above are some close ups of the hand shaped flowers using the small dies in the Dotty Doily Die Set. It is for sure a "Must Have" die set for sure!
Thank you for stopping by today and for viewing my work. If you would like to see more of my work please visit my personal blog. Thanks so much!
Melanie

Lock Itz Dies

called Flutterby

These dies are so amazing.

Immediately, I wanted to try and do a tilt and make my Flutterby Fly.

Wanna try it with me?

Let's Go....

 

First we will cut our cardstock at 12 x 5 1/4

 

 

Score at 3 1/2 and 7 3/4

 

I lay my die with the tilt as shown. A portion of the butterfly will touch the edge.

Depending on how you want to tilt as to what and how much touches.

 

Now the way I did this was a little irregular but it's the end result right?

 

 

Now fold the card base on the score lines. 

Note one edge will be longer.

That's the front.

 

 

Now where the edge is on the inside of your card base when folded, 

you will make a little mark.

Flip it around and mark the other end.

 

 

You're going to place your die on the cardstock edge as per the package instructions 

BUT

you're going to position the end of the die on that marked point.

 

 

The die end will not be showing out as far and will look more like this one.

 

or this one at regular viewing.

Don't be scared. Just washi it down.

I like to flip mine upside down to make sure the edges are aligned.

Then run it through.

 

Hook your pieces together and off we go.

To finish up my card, I used Splendid Azure Paper pack in light blue for the background.

using the Dark Blue, I cut and trimmed the butterfly, then placed it down.

Then, using Soft Blush Paper Pack, I created my flowers.

Now make a note, the die flowers are not solid.

I cut them dbl and spliced the other side.

Finally, a sentiment from Splendid Azure Quick Words Stickers was placed atop the tag from

Fancy Rectangles & Layers

 

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.

If you have any questions, always feel free to holler.
