LDRS Creative October Feature Day 2

Friday, October 25, 2019

Hello everyone and welcome to our Fall and Halloween Feature!

For the next two days, the Design Team from LDRS Creative has created gorgeous projects to inspire you with the latest Fall collection that is now available in a local craft store near you!

We are talking about... 

Some amazing Halloween High Jinks Stamps (cut out in no time with the coordinating die set), Happy Haunting Stamps (with a perfect coordinating die set here), and one of the new Petal Pusher sets, Pick of the Patch (and its die set)!

We also continued adding to our wonderful Basic dies line: In the Breeze Die SetDown Main Street Die, and Over the Hills Die. Not to forget Up a Tree Die SetGarden Gateway Die SetGarden Wreath Die Set. They fit with all of our products, so don't miss on them!

People have been amazed by the thickness of the brand new Fall 6x6 paper pack, Sweater Weather - 6x6 Paper. How GORGEOUS is it?!

And of course, a brand new all-in-one stencil called A Walk in the Park - 6x6 Stencil !


For my card today, I started by stamping the wreath image from the No Matter the Weather set with some light orange ink.  I then took one of the detail layers for the wreath and heat embossed that image with gold embossing powder.

I don't know that I have ever heat embossed over regular stamping before or if I have, it's been quite some time.

I really love the look this gives and the texture the embossing adds to the wreath.

I also decided to do something that I haven't done in ages which is to score my card panel to create dimension.  I took my scoring tool and scored at every 1/4 inch.

I realized at this point that I probably should have stamped my sentiment before I did the scoring but I took a chance and with the help of my Misti so I could stamp the sentiment multiple times, I was able to get a great impression, even with the texture from the scored lines.

The sentiment comes from the same No Matter the Weather set.  As part of the finishing touches to this card, I decided I wanted to add just a bit more gold heat embossing and to create some depth on my card edges.

I took my Watermark Emboss Pad from LDRS Creative and ran it over just the edges of my stamped card panel. I then used the same gold embossing powder and heat set this. I love how this looks and how it pulls the whole card together.

I finished off the card by popping up my stamped panel with foam tape and adding some metallic gold gems to my wreath.

Hop around this short hop to see all the beautiful creations and new techniques used on them!
