As always, the LDRS Creative Exclusive Craft Kits are limited edition and once they sell out you won't be able to get all of the items together for the special kit price - so shop fast!
I brought in some extra goodies from LDRS Creative to make these cards, but you can alter and edit these designs to use just the items from the craft kit if you want!
I decided to start out with the Circles Layering Stencils from the kit and create a simple background. I blended Key Lime Pie, Tropical Sea, and Banana Cream Pie over each of the tree stencils and just like that I had a fun and whimsical background! I die cut a label shape die from the Elegant Stitched Frames Slimline Die Set (not included) and blended a bit of Banana Cream Pie Hybrid Ink onto the bottom fading out to white at the top. I stamped a sentiment from the Pastry Pals Stamp Set and colored it in with alcohol markers. I stamped the cute donut and donut hole image with Raven Hybrid Ink and colored them and then die cut them with the coordinating dies and popped them onto my label to finish off the first card!
This card is super cute and so simple to make! I started by die cutting a piece of white cardstock with the largest die from the A2 Stitched Layered Card Toppers Die Set and then I cut the pieces down using a border die from the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set (from the kit). I thought this particular border reminded me of icing on a cake! I lightly blended Soft Kisses Hybrid Ink over the border edge and faded out to white on the opposite edges. I picked a piece of patterned paper from the Sweet Sensations 6x6 Paper Pack and added it to a 4.25" square card. I popped up the stitched border pieces on top of the patterned paper and added the cute little singing cupcake and sentiment to my card. A sprinkling of pastel colored baubles from my stash completes the card!
Here's the simplest card of the bunch! I die cut the large polka dot patterned paper from the Sweet Sensations 6x6 Paper Pack with one of the border dies from the Offset Slimline Stack-ables Die Set and popped it up with foam on top of the red polka dot patterned paper. I stamped and colored the muffin and cinnamon roll from the Pastry Pals Stamp Set and used the coordinating die set to cut them out. I stamped the matching sentiment and fussy cut it with my scissors and added my elements to the card with foam tape.
I decided to really glam up my fourth card and show you a different way to use the Circle Layering Stencils from the kit! I used Grape Ape Hybrid Ink over one of the stencils and then added spatters of gold shimmer watercolor. You could choose a different stencil, but I decided to take the same stencil I used with the purple ink, rotate it twice, shift it slightly and place it down on my card once again. I used Deco Foil Transfer Gel DUO from ThermOWeb and added the gel over the stencil and let the panel dry. Once it was dry I used my die cutting machine to transfer green foil over the gel. Now I have a pretty background with ink, shimmer, and foil! I colored a green and purple pastry treat from the Pastry Pals Stamp Set to match my background and popped them up on the card. I love all the shine!
I decided to go bold and bright for my last card! I grabbed a piece of Watercolor Slimline 4x9 Paper and used my neon watercolors to paint diagonal stripes across the paper. I added some flicks of black watercolor for texture. I die cut the scallop frame using the Slimline Scallop Die Set (sold separately) and added foam tape behind the frame. I cut away the overhang of the watercolor background and added the piece onto a slimline card. I stamped and colored a bunch of the Pastry Pal images and arranged them across the middle of my card. I added a hand cut birthday sentiment to finish the card.
I hope you've enjoyed all five of these cards! I'd love to know which is your favorite! Remember to head to the LDRS Creative store and grab your Pastry Pals Exclusive Card Kit before they sell out! Happy crafting!
