Hello

I here today with a very simple but still quite elegant card
from LDRS Creative.

Products I'm using are;
TLC Inspired Crafting Hello - Word Die
I rarely use background stamps but our new
TLC Inspired Crafting Collection just begs to be used.
I started out stamping the Blooming Stamp with Versamark
onto the green from Soft Blush Paper Pack 
then clear embossing.
I think this is a favorite way to use these for me.
The image shows through in a striking was but allows for the 
main theme to come through so beautifully.
Next I take the blue from Splendid Azure Paper Pack and
cut my shape from the Gilded Oval Die Set.
Taking the soft blush from Soft Blush Paper Pack,
I cut out my  Hello - Word Die.
Finally, I use the dark blush from Soft Blush Paper Pack
and re-cut only the flowers to add some pop. 
Adhere it all together and I am all done.
I hope to see your creations for LDRS Creative soon.

Faith

Hello, I've got little LDRS Creative Faith for you today.

Products used are:



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 Slendid 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

Flutterby Flight

Hello all, Dorinda here today to show you how I've used one of our new
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

I hope you enjoyed my tutorial.
If you have any questions, always feel free to holler.
