CHA Sneak peek LDRS Creative Day 1

 Welcome to the 2017 CHA Sneak Peek! LDRS Creative is excited to announce we will be releasing over 60 NEW PRODUCTS this year!  Over the next 6 days I'm sharing a peek at projects I've created with some of the amazing products coming your way!
First! 
ART-Z
Hooty-Owl, Sami-Swan, Clawdia-Cat and Penny-Peacock!
My very first illustrations EVER are available through LDRS Creative called Art-Z!!  These adorable and fun to color illustrations are for all your stamping and crafty needs!  The first release is filled with delicate, ornate, and fun to color Zentangle like rubber stamp images of animals and dies to cut them out with!  

YES!!  You get dies with them to cut around the images perfectly and a few dies extra to use in decorating your project as you desire as well!  Woah!  That's perfect right?   
Not to mention, there are 4, count them 4! fantastic new background stamps - "Wild Flowers", "Peacock Feathers", "Blooming", "Mod Swirls" in this line too!!!  check them out!! 
I've begun to journal in my Bible lately and am truly loving every moment in the word.  Today I've journaled using: Art-Z "Hooty Owl" Stamp and my colored pencils.  Page prepped with clear Gesso and sealed with workable fixative.  There's no way to make a mistake!  
Genesis 6 9:22 God called upon Noah to build an Arc, to prepare for a pair of every creature on earth and it was done.  We were saved by this action and Praise him for his mercy.   There was no better way to symbolize how this scripture made me feel than to brilliantly color one of the Lords creatures to bless the page with.  Thank you Noah! 
Speaking of new product lines, I've designed a BRAND NEW line of Crafting products called:

Second!

TLC INSPIRED CRAFTING!
Two different collections being released "Splendid Azure" and "Soft Blush" collections

 
 This is a line combining paper products like Washi Stickers, Design Paper, Tabs, and Stickers!!


To further add to the TLC INSPIRED CRAFTING collection, there is the 
TLC INSPIRED STAMPING collection.  

I'm showing you next an example of the NEW "Edge Stamp" by using: TLC Inspired Edge Stamp called "Faithful" and a small stamp from the TLC Inspired, Words of Wisdom, "Full of Faith and Grace" stamps
Stamp these large edge stamps right in your journal, Bible, scrapbook, calendar and MORE!
The stamps are beautifully etched rubber and large contour cuts!  These aren't little bitty stamps!  They have real good coverage for your projects!  The individual parts could be inked separately if desired too!   The options are endless!!!  The fonts are hollow just waiting for you to color in!  The Words of Wisdom collections have a total of 49 words and prefixes and suffixes to creatively express the way you feel anywhere!   You're gonna love these stamps! 
Genesis 12 4:9  This is the opportunity Abram was given to take his wife to Canaan where the Lord told him "To your offspring I will give this land".  Abram was faithful and blessed by the Lord!  This entire page was covering the story of Abrams travels and blessing from the lord so I needed to fill it with boundless color and life just as God had promised Abram. 
Third!
TLC INSPIRED STAMPING collections:
Bits n Bobs - Magnolia Splendor and Growing Garden 
Words of Wisdom- Follow the Blessed and Full of Faith and Grace 
Inspired Edge- Blessed,Faith,Grow and Love
Cherished Stamping 1 

Fourth!
Recently released on HSN, and currently exclusive there until March 2017 are my NEW LOCK-ITZ die designs with LDRS Creative!  If you didn't get to view these dies in action, don't hesitate to visit the HSN.com site where you can watch our own Angie Hunt demonstrate how these simple and innovative dies work!   You're going to LOVE them and all of the quick and inventive projects you can make with them!
Fifth!
The BRAND NEW TLC Expression DIES!  That's right, LDRS Creative has it's first set of sentiment dies I've created for you to get crafty with!  These aren't just your everyday normal word dies either!  Each of the words are decorated with sweet little bits that make your project pop with it's specialness!  Hearts, flowers, candies!  Your project will be like NO other with these dies! 
Below I've created a cute little card using: Lock-Itz Die - "Love is a Rose" 
I've used a remotely heavy paper, using the instructions on the back of each of these die packages and created the "Locked" card.  Then I cut a second rose in red (both halves) and glued them to the top of the original rose locked card.
 There are loads and loads more products we are bringing this release as well!  We are introducing 4 stamp & die sets ‘Go Wild’, ‘Sweet Treats’, ‘Garden Bunny’, ‘Outdoor Play’.  Each set comes complete with adorable characters, fun sentimental sayings, and coordinating dies to make cutting out the images super easy and fun.

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!


 INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

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!
