LDRS Creative: Eleganza Floral Stamps with Uptown Sayings

Happy Saturday everyone! My little boy, who is not so little anymore, turned 11 years old on Wednesday, and today we are having his birthday party with all his friends. They really do not lie when they say time passes by quickly. I look back on older pictures of him and can't believe 11 years have passed! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY BOY! You are an awesome kiddo, and I'm so blessed and proud to be your mom! Love you!


 Today, I created this floral circular card for LDRS Creative 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

C.C. Designs: Sweet November MERMAIDS

Happy FRIDAY everyone! I'm back with a card for C.C. Designs using one of the mermaids from this awesome set called Sweet November Mermaids. I love mermaids, and the ones in this set are so AMAZING!! I stamped her on Cryogen cardstock, colored her with Copics, and then added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker over her top and tail for extra sparkle.

Copics:
Skin: E000, E00, E01, E11, E13
Hair: C9, C7, BG18, BG10

Tail: BG18, BG72, BG10, V17, V15, V12, RV02, RV04, RV09
Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker
 
I used the C.C. Designs Windows Cutting Metal Die to make the open squares on the left. Then I added some fish patterned paper to the inside of my card so it shows through the squares. To make it more glittery, I added Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker over the patterned paper. 
 
 
 I then cut a piece of watercolor paper and used the PRIMA METALLIC ACCENTS Watercolor Paint Pans to paint the background. I LOVE these watercolor cake pans. They are easy to use, very shimmery, and are totally AWESOME!!
 
 
 
 
Now be sure to head over to the C.C. Designs Store and snatch up all of the awesome goodies! The stamps are so much fun to color up!

Hugs,
Rosie

7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store: SAY YES TO DONUTS!

Happy Sunday everyone! Before I get to my card I wanted to remind you that 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store is having FREE SHIPPING and a FREE GIFT with a minimum purchase of $30 this Memorial Weekend. FOR USA ORDERS ONLY. Just use code FREE at checkout. :)
 
My card features a stamp from Neat & Tangled called Say Yes To Donuts. I actually LOVE doughnuts! I'm on a low-carb eating plan and haven't had a doughnut in forever. But yesterday, I gave in to temptation when I went to the doughnut shop for my son and got a double chocolate cake doughnut. Let me tell you it was the best tasting doughnut I've ever had, haha! I don't even have a favorite doughnut...I LOVE them all! I colored this cutie with Copics and then added Ranger Glossy Accents to the pink frosting. It's hard to tell in the photo, but it's shiny!


The doughnut background paper came from an digital paper pad on Etsy called Donut Shop. The printed doughnut in the top corner is from another Etsy digital file called Coffee and Donut Lover. I used the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches to make the pink frame around my image. The ribbon and enamel dots are from my stash.

 
Don't forget about our current ANYTHNG GOES Challenge on the 7 Kids Challenge Blog. You can use any stamp in your stash!! Just click on the link on the Challenge Blog (right side bar) to upload your card for a chance at winning a $20 gift certificate to the store!

LDRS Creative: Splendid Azure

Happy Friday everyone! Today, I'm sharing my latest card combining elements from LDRS Creative Splendid Azure with a couple of the LDRS dies. As you can see, the variety of products in the store allow you to create many different types of cards....even ones that don't require coloring!



The TLC Inspired line in the LDRS Store has various, coordinating products to assist you in creating beautiful cards. Not only are there paper pads, but also matching cut-outs, word stickers, tab stickers, and washi stickers. I used the Splendid Azure 6x6 Paper Pad with the Splendid Azure Cut-Outs and Splendid Azure Quick Words Stickers for the front of the card. The gold paper was embossed using the Picnic Quilt Embossing Folders. The dragonflies are from the Allifair Build-A-Card Die Set.



I cut the front of the card shorter and then added more Splendid Azure paper to the inside of the card with the Dainty Doily Border Die glued to the inside of the card along the edge. That way when the card is closed you still see the decorative edge.



The selection and variety of products have grown over the past few months 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

The Greeting Farm Special Release: AMERICAN HEROES

Happy Saturday everyone! Today, The Greeting Farm has a special release to honor our servicemen and women in recognition of the upcoming Memorial Holiday. The new stamp set is called AMERICAN HEROES and is available in the TGF Store TODAY!!

My dad was a 1st Sargent in the Army, and I have a lot of family and friends who have served or are still serving so this set is close to my heart. I can't thank all our Servicemen and Servicewomen for their hard work and many sacrifices. It's an underpaid job, and we ask a lot of them to defend our freedoms and protect our country. 

I used all of the characters from the stamp set to create my card. Here they all are....colored with Copic Markers of course.


For my card I used some old CTMH papers that I had in my stash and some C.C. Designs Enamel Dots. I kept it pretty clean and simple to highlight the characters and sentiment.


Have an awesome weekend! Don't forget to head over to The Greeting Farm Store and grab the AMERICAN HEROES Stamp Set today so you receive it in time to make your own cards.

Hugs,
Rosie
