Card Making

Tropical Blues

Good Morning, this is Kathy. I hope you all are well. Does anyone miss traveling? I sure do and this beautiful stamp set from LDRS reminds me of a tropical vacation.

The Tropical Floral Slimline and coordinating die are part of the LDRS summer collection. It is a big and beautiful stamp that is perfect for slimline and A2 cards. The coordinating die is also available but wasn’t used in this project.

I stamped the image on Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock in the Raven Hybrid Ink. I then used a rectangle die to cut out part of the image.

I colored the inner part of the cut out with alcohol markers and used the Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp the sentiment which is in the stamp set. I embossed it in clear embossing ink. I am sure many of you know that stamping in black ink and embossing in clear powder (instead of black) creates less of a chance of loose powder. If you do have powder in places you don’t want it’s clear!

I then glued the outer cut to a 4.25 x 5.5” card base using foam tape. This sums it up.

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoy being part of the LDRS Creative team. Please let me know what you think in the comments below.


Tropical Flowers!!

Good afternoon!! Today I am sharing this beautiful stamp and die set. I am also featuring a cover plate that is so versatile.

This Tropical Flowers Slim Line stamp is fabulous. While it is made for slim line cards you can easily use it for all card formats!

I cut the Trellis Cover Plate and glued it over black card stock. After stamping the image I colored it using pencils. It was cut with the Tropical Flowers die.

I also cut out a circle and ink blended it with LDRS Inks. I cut it in half and placed it behind the sentiment for visual interest.

The sentiment was inked in white and embossed with white embossing powder. Doing this really helps the sentiment to pop.

I hope you enjoy the card and as always thanks for stopping by!!
