Hope ~ La-La Land Crafts

Happy Friday!

It’s once again Inspiration Friday at La-La Land Crafts.  Our theme this week is to use products from the new release.

Courage Marci is prepared to fight like a girl!  I am sending lots of hugs and hope her way.

Hope

I stamped this little sweetheart on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following Copic Markers.

~Copics~
Skin:  E04, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Pinks:  RV34, RV11, RV00, RV0000, R00, R000, R0000
Grays:  W4, W2, W1, W0, W00
White Gel Pen

Hope2

To create the outside ribbon border I die cut 4 of the Awareness Ribbon Die from pink cardstock.  I place the die cuts upside down on a rotary mat used for quilting which has measurements on it so that I could make sure that it stayed square.  I taped the pieces to the mat using Scotch removable tape so that I could glue the corners together.  Once the glue was dry I could then remove the piece and it to my card.

I then die cut the scalloped square using the Scalloped Rectangles Die, partially cutting from both directions, moving the die over in order to create a square.   The Double Stitched Squares Die was cut in the same way so that it fit the size of the opening.

Hope3

I knew I wanted to create a shaker card with the Hope Heart Die, but needed the top of the heart to be a little bit thicker in order to add the double sided foam tape without it being visible.  I knew if I matted the heart it would be just thick enough to make it work.

To create the matting around the heart I taped the Hope Heart Die onto a piece of pink cardstock and lightly traced around the outside and the inside with a fine point pencil and then carefully fussy cut it out by hand.

Welcome BABY ~ La-La Land Crafts

Happy Friday!

It’s time for Inspiration Friday at La-La Land Crafts and we have some serious cuteness in our new release!

My inspiration today is using this adorable baby and the sweet little bunny are from the ‘Bundle of Joy Clear Stamp Set‘.  The new dies are the ‘Baby Onesie Die‘, and the ‘Welcome Baby Die‘.

I absolutely love baby cards with shaker elements.  My favorite way to make them is with Tulle, it gives an element of softness to the card.

Welcome Baby

All of the coloring was done on X-Press It Blending Card and colored with the following Copic Markers.

Welcome Little One

Good afternoon!

Oh my goodness…can we say cuteness overload!!!

I am sharing my guest design project for Digi Doodle Studios featuring this super ADORABLE giraffe.  This little sweetheart is from the ‘Little Ones Pairables‘ digital stamp set.  What a darling stamp set for all the “littles” in this world.

The techniques used to color this sweetie are from Kit & Clowder online classes – Jungle Jam ~ September 2018.  Alyce is an amazing teacher!!

Digi Doodle Giraffe

I printed this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored him with the following Copic Markers.

The dies for the shaker part and the leaves are all from La-La Land Crafts.  The remaining dies used are from My Favorite Things, Gummiapan, and Memory Box.

The shaker front is made from tulle purchased at a local craft store.  I really like the softness from using tulle versus using acetate…easier to photograph and no fingerprints…lol.

I don’t make a lot of baby cards, but this one is so adorable I may have a really hard time parting with it!

All Dressed Up for Christmas

All Dressed Up for Christmas1

I had the idea to turn this into a shaker card so I separated my image in Photoshop leaving the tree as one image and the girl and her star as the second image.  The tree is on the inside of the shaker with all the pretty little bits.  She is attached on top of the shaker with double sided foam tape.
