Abby Lynne, LDRS Creative



Hey there crafty peeps!  I'd like to share a card with you today that I made for LDRS Creative for CHA.  This is one of many stamps that were revealed this month.  She is a CandiBean stamp called  Abby Lynne.  These stamps will be available in the shop very soon but until then you can check out all of the new stamps and dies that were revealed at CHA by browsing the LDRS Creative Catalogue.


I kept my card fairly simply to really show off the new Creative Basics die that I've used.  Creative Basics is a new line thats just been added to the LDRS Creative shop.  For this card I used one of the dies from the Cutting Edge Borders set.
The sentiment I used is also new.  It is from the stamp set You.  It's a simple yet elegant set and so versatile too.  This is a sentiment set I know I will reach for again and again.


I colored her with my Copics and used some older MME papers that I've been hoarding.


Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today ! I hope I've inspired you to make a little crafty time for yourself.
