LDRS Creative Arctic Snowfall Collection

Hi Friends,
Welcome Back! Today I have a fun new project I have created using the Arctic Snow Fall Release available at LDRS Creative.

When designing this card I decided to create a scene. I love the Arctic Snow 6x6 Paper Pad and when I saw the snowflake sky I just had to create around it. I wanted a shaped card so I chose the Woodland Foliage Frames set of dies. Using one of the oval dies from the set I cut the sky and snow for the background. I then colored the beautiful Tree Line Stamp and then die cut it using the coordinating Tree Line Die to create the background skyline. The hills in front of the trees was cut using the Holly Border which is half price in the store right now!!!

I used lots of foam tape to pop up the tree line along with the fox. This ADORABLE fox is from the Arctic Snowfall stamp set. I added a double layer of foam tape behind his feet and tail so he would lay nicely over the background. The sentiment is also from the Arctic Snowfall stamp set.

I hope you have enjoyed today's project. If you have any questions or would like to follow my work you can use  "Follow By Email" or "Contact Me" widgets along the left tool bar of my blog.

Tinsley by LDRS Creative ~ 1 Easy Designers Tip

Hi Friends,
I would love to share a fun project I created using the fairy stamp named "Tinsley"By LDRS Creative

This beautiful stamp is shown on the website as a holiday fairy (see below). But I decided to grab some stunning paper that we sell and have a little fun with Ms. Tinsley!!

Who says she has to be a holiday fairy??? I first decided to coordinate my project all to match the Sincerely Yours 6x6" paper pad. It came out quite striking! The sentiment came from our New Beginnings Stamp Set.

As I was using the Woodland Foliage Frames die set I  die cut my stamped image with the larger of the two oval dies which did not give me a frame to add behind it

Designers TIP: Simply trace your die around the outside of the die using a ball point pen. Then simply fussy cut it out. Quick and easy tip that really allows you even more versatility when using your favorite dies.

After using foam tape to pop up the oval layers I then cut two of the foliage branches from the same dies set and glued a nice grouping flowers around one side to finish assembly. Lastly I added glitter glue to the fairy wings. Here is a last look of my creation.

My goal today was to inspire your creative side. I hope I have accomplished that. LIKE MY WORK? leave your EMAIL along the side bar to get notified each time I post a new project. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Happy crafting!
