LDRS Creative's Magical Slider Card Die Set

Hi Friends,

Today over on the Little Darlings Inspiration blog I have shared this brand new card design. I recently watched the LDRS YouTube Channel about using the "Magical Slider" card. Have you seen this die set? This set has so many possibilities and can accessorize all your other stamps and dies that you already have. Lets take a look at this Magical set.


When you watch the YouTube video below you will see what the slider card normally does. I did not have transparency film on hand so rather than it be a slider card where your top image is uncolored and your slider reveals the colored image I decided to use it to reveal the sentiment. I just love how it turned out. It fits an A2 size card too which is nice!

Along with the Magical Slider Card die set I also incorporated the Eleganza Stamp & Die set along with the Cotton Candy Paper Stack.

Here is a close up of my coloring. I used alcohol markers as my medium. 

Our goal at LDRS Creative is to help encourage your creative side. As always if you have any questions we are here for you. What will you be making today???

Magnolia-Licious Bunny Slippers

Hi Friends,

Today I have such an adorable card for you. Lately I've been noticing that I do not make many get well or sympathy cards so I decided to have this card be a "get well" type of card. I just love the Magnolia Bunny Slippers stamp from the Get Well Collection. I have colored her with Copics in muted tones to match this beautiful paper.

The paper I have used is Lemon Craft 6x6" Heart Painted Paper. Have you seen all the papers we carry over at Magnolia-Licious? They are all yummy.

For the dies I used dies that are from two different Magnolia Doohickey kits. The bunnies are from Magnolia Doohickey 8 and the balloons from Doohickey 5. These are exclusive kits which are only available for a limited time. So make sure to keep an eye out for the new limited time releases when they become available.  Currently Vol 19 & 20 are available for preorder HERE

I hope I have brought a little sunshine your world. Make something pretty today! Hugs, Melanie

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
