Make It Crafty Buttons Halloween Fun

 Hello friends I'm back with a Halloween card featuring MIC Buttons digi with their fabulous chippies in combination of Creative Basic Dies by Rhea.
I always enjoy playing with Halloween images specially these cool MIC digis. 

I colored her with Copics and touched her up with Polychromos pencils

I wanted to layer the Fancy Rectangle Build A Card Die set cuts and wanted to use the big size as a layer instead of the card fold. I simply just cut through the stitched line and embossed line.

then just layered the both cuts

for my MIC Chipboard I colored it with my YGO6 Copic marker and added Nuvo Glow drops for dimension and glow in the dark effect.
I added a tiny bit on the dolls hair and this is what it looks like in the dark.

Lol! My corner droplets look like spooky eyes lol!

Thank you for stopping by and will be back soon.

NEW Creative Basics dies by Rhea

Hello I have a double share today... I'm excited to get to play with my friend Rhea's NEWEST die collection Creative Basics Dies by Rhea. I mean she's really making it easier for us cardmakers/ Crafters with all these smart shortcuts and fun cuts to play with. 
My first card I created was an Easel card using Fancy Rectangles Build a Card Die set and Half double stitched Circles.

As you can see it's hard to see where the dies went to play and that's why I took a picture of my base. I actually ended up adding a third tab on the front of the card and that's
 where I added my "This Way"sign and I have a ghost cut in the middle tab. The back tab is to hold the actual coloring image and the back base.

I used the following stamps 

C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Oct 31 Nora Rubber Stamp and 

C.C. Designs Swiss Pixie Dragon Hansel Rubber Stamp 

I watercolored them with Marvy markers and TimHoltz distress ink pads




For my second card I created using Fancy Rectangles Build a Card Die set and Perfectly Layered Dotted Daisies

he was colored with COPIC Markers

I seriously loved playing with the flower die and giving it a awesome depth by layering different size cuts.


I hope you enjoy my cards and I'll be back very soon.

Teacup Full Of Wishes

Hello friends today I'm featuring Teacup full of Wishes stamp along with some LDRS Dies. 
With the combination of both I created this versatile card for many occasions.


I colored my Rubber stamp with Copic markers and cut her out with the Creative Basics Fancy Rectangle & Layers die.


I then mounted her on this intricate elegant cut using Polkadoodles Regal Frame in a mint Aqua cut and gave them dimension so they could stand on their own very nicely and set each cut apart.

My base is Time For Tea 6x6 paper pad .... I used two different sheets. One for the pop of color and the other to simply neutralize my image and my design paper and blend it all in so nicely.


I cut some hearts from Polkadoodles Dotty Doily with sparkly red paper and adorn around my image and card.

Finished it off with a silk lush red bow. The ideas for this card are endless and can be used for many occasions.
Feel free to pick her up and give her a try at the LDRS Store.
All the items used are listed for you down below and linked directly to the product.

have a sweet day and I'll see you soon

I Brought The Cake

Hello I'm back with you today to share some more of the NEW Polkadoodles Time For Tea 6x6 design papers and this sweet

I colored my image with artist markers and simply fuzzy cut her out

I played with many LDRS creative dies to give dimension to my card and I used the pretty NEW Polkadoodles Time for Tea 6x6 papers... let me just say they're super super beautiful. I adore the colors and patterns. They coordinate so nicely with the images.

I have a line of dies that went into use to create my card. For my base I used Creative Basics Grace Build-a-Card Die kit. That created my white clean base with a beautiful trim circle. Then I layered all my die cuts with dimension tape.
Finished with a gold trim bow for a contrasting color. I hope I have inspired you today and get you creating. You could find the list of dies down below that went into use.
Have a wonderful day

DollHouse Gwen

Hello I'm back on LDRS Creative Inspiration today with a fun card using DollHouse Gwen  and some beautiful Creative Basics Dies 

I created a sweet Circle card using Creative Basics Grace Build-A -Card die set.
for my base of my card. I used a few cuts form the Allifair Build-A-Card like the dragonflies,clouds and the tiny cut flowers.

My stamp was cut out using Creative Basics Fancy Rectangles and Layers die and mounted on foam tape.

I am Roses is sponsoring us this week over Passionate Paper Creations on FB  and all these beautiful flowers cascading my card come from there. You find a variety of gorgeous flowers!

Gwen comes from the DollHouse Collection and she is one of my favorites to color. I don't know if it's her big eyes or the hair but I keep coming back to her. You could find her in the LDRS Creative store at a very good price. 
These are a few times I've colored her.

Today I'm showcasing her in artist markers

this other time she was done with markers as well 

and this one here was watercolored

I hope you enjoy my card today and have you inspired

ADU Girl Can't Have Too Many

Hello Welcome back to my creative corner.

Yes.... I've been MIA SIGH...
I've been overloaded with my children's curricular activities. I have a busy schedule of soccer and baseball games then you have the Chicago Cubs games lol!
 I think I've been to four games already and the season just started! I know I have another one schedule for the second week of May too, lol!
Anyhow I'm going to try to post once or twice a week to try to catch up.
Today I'm going to start  with a ADU CAS card .
 Using the precious A girl can't have enough stamp as my center focus and surrounding her with these beautiful articulate die cuts from Polkadoodles and TLC Expressions

I watercolored my stamp and then cut her out using the center of the the Polkadoodles Regal Frame.The beautiful intricate cut was used on the base for her and simply popped her on top. I used Polkadoodles Eleganza design paper for  a base. I tucked a Polkadoodles Scalloped Swag cut underneath and the Eleganza of this cut is unbelievably beautiful I tell you. Finished it off with a pretty sweet die cut sentiment... Literally. 
The TLC Expressions Word cuts are so easy and beautiful sentiments to finish up a project. 

I hope you enjoy my creation and please don't forget to stop by on our LDRS Creative Facebook page AND Instagram account for more inspiration and special perks.

Have a lovely day

You Mean The World To Me

Hello I'm back to share a little twist using Saturated Canary Thermal Weather. Along with a list of Creative Basic Dies and LDRS Creative dies.

I created a fun soft tag for Valentine's Day since it's coming up. I turned a winter theme stamp image into a Valentine's theme by simply adding hearts around her and with the help of my sentiment from the "You" Collection.

Now the Process ,First I colored her with watercolors then cut her out using the Creative Basic Fancy Rectangles & Layers.I tucked in die cuts behind her like the Gilded Doily and Dewdrop circle. Now using the dewdrop die I took the smaller circle and used that one to stamp my sentiment and mount it on top with 3D glue dots.
As You can see I double on my flags.I used the Creative Basic Stitched Flags and them used the Creative Basic Picnic Quilt Embossing folder to add texture to them both.

I tucked in some lovely Creative Basic Dotted Wings on top of the tag and one by my sentiment.
Lastly the bottom border was done using the Creative Basic Cutting Edge Borders I. Cutting out a few cuts and then layering them on top of each other for a dimensional effect. I really enjoy the way that looks.

I hope I inspired you to give this a try and thank you for stopping by.

Merry and Bright

Here is a card I forgot to share here lol! Last year actually :P 
 I'm showcasing a fun winter scene with North Woods Stamps and dies along with a few Creative Basic Products.
I had a fun idea to color in some spruce in my trees with artist markers and adding sparkly snow on them using a few products.
I did forget to add my glitter on my picture but pretty much any glitter of your choice works perfectly well.
Just mix in as much as you want to use and using your brush to layer on top were you desire.
In no time you will have trees full of sparkly snow 
I added a few drops of water just so I could bring it to a more thinner consistency because it was very chunky lol!
Lay them down with dimensional glue dots and had me a fun dimensional winter scene with lots of sparkle.
The bottom of my layer was cut out using Creative Basic Cutting Edge Borders I and I used my Creative Basic Picnic Quilt embossing folder for a sweet texture. It even looks like snow right! 
My sentiment comes from the Little Darlings CandiBean Merry Christmas Rubber stamp  kit exclusively at HSN. I used Basic Pierced Ovals to pop it right on top of my card.
The North Woods stamps come with coordinating dies so the ideas are endless in creating a simple sweet project or a full fun scenery card. 
I hope you enjoy my take on these stamps and we'll see you here again soon.
Well better late than never lol!
Your friend
