Today is YOUR day!


 Just Because I love sharing with you all these adorable little Gorjuss mini girls!  I'm here today with you all here on my blog and on the 7 Kids College Fund blog.  The weather outside is still chili but when I sit down and create a project with these mini stamps, I can't resist using warm and springy colors.  They bring the spring out in me! 


Her name is "Lost Heart".  I'm sure by the way she's hugging her little bear, the likely reason for the name is because she holds him so close to her heart!  These little lovelies are so easy and fun to color up!  Their hair has loads of movement and while there is less skin tone showing, the striped socks and curled in toes make up for it! Find your favorite in the store today and color one up yourself!  I'm sure you'll love her afterwards! 

 MEDIUMS:
Ranger Distress Ink
Copic Ink


She's colored with Copics and I created with a few other products you can find in the store such as the chipboard steampunk design with gears from Wycinanka, the Majestic Frame Die from the LDRS Creative spot in the store and Ranger Distress Ink and Copics too! 

 EMBELLISHMENTS:

We've just begun another challenge with the Love theme, so be sure to join in on the fun and a chance to win $20.00 of product from the store!!  See you there!

Gifting some Sunshine

 Mixing and matching loads of FANTASTIC NEW LDRSCreative product lines in today's project!  These gift cards come in handy around the holidays but who says they can't be used all year round?  The base of the project was embossed for texture and then I used the creative basics cutting edge die and cut a hill out of some coordinating paper.  

The North Pole stamp and die set contain the cutie pie penguins and the post sign and the North Woods LDRS stamp and die set have the evergreen trees, grass and cloud.  These two set work so well together that I couldn't resist using both!  


After setting up the die work on the card itself, I thought it needed some frill so I cut the Gilded Doily and adhered half of it to each side of the card.  Then the Peaceful Dove border was cut from Kraft paper and I colored the leaves with Copic ink to offset the colors.  I also used copic ink of some Recollections crystals for the Doily to add color out on the edges of the project.

The card was finished p with a bit of Walnut Stain on the edges and on the inside I created and adhered a pocket to hold the gift.  The inside was embellished with some of the other die cut available at LDRS Creative as well and you can find them in the list below.  Thanks for joining me, give these gift cards a try, very low effort and great reward!  Have fun and stay crafty! 

INGREDIENTS:
My Minds Eye Lost n Found Christmas

MEDIUMS:
Momento Ink Black
Walnut Stain Distress Ink
White Gel Pen
Copic C5,3,1,00 on penguins


EMBELLISHMENTS:
Glossy Accents
Recollections Crystals


INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Big things come in small packages!
