LDRS Creative ~ Barnyard

Hi Friends,

Today I am bringing you a fun Barnyard scene. I love creating scene cards. This LDRS Stamp and Die set creates endless possibilities.

This scene began with the Farmer's Market 6x6" paper pack. I loved the rolling hills but I wanted to have the feel of a sky so I used the checked paper to create the feel of there being a sky. Adding the Clouds from the Barnyard stamp set pulled it all together.

Here is a closer picture of the bard. If you look closely you will see that the die cuts out all of the doors and windows. It even cuts little holes out on the windows. So that I would not see the background behind the open doors and windows I simply added back paper behind all the openings. You could even add characters inside the windows and doors.

LDRS Creative ~ Crazy For Daisies

Welcome back friends,

Today I have a fun coloring project to share. As soon as I spotted this NEW LDRS Creative's set, Crazy For Daisies, I immediately wanted to color it. For my project I have just used the large focal stamp but this set offers even more. See below for details.

To design this card my focus is always color first. I look at the coloring in the paper and decide on marker colors. For this project I have used Spectrum Noir Classique Markers. They were a joy to work with.

Here is a close up of my coloring. I have used the New Spectrum Noir Classique Alcohol markers on this project.
