You Are Snow Amazing

Happy Friday!! We have an “Anything Goes” theme at La-La Land Crafts this week and I chose to play with this adorable bunny from the Snow Amazing stamp set.

I was in a purple mood, which is a color I rarely choose, so this was a refreshing change!

I’ve inked a soft background with Milled Lavender distress ink and then inked a Snowy Hills layering stencil with Picket Fence distress ink.

For my winter scene, I Copic air-brushed a sunset sky using a Water Ripples layering stencil and I’ve used the mountain, trees and snowcap dies from the Club La-La Land Crafts October 2019 kit. A Stitched Cloud die and snowdrift from the Chimney die completed the scene.

Just love this little bunny!

Birthday Wishes

Happy Friday!!

This week’s theme for the LLLC team is Birthday and I think this little penguin is just perfect!

I’ve kept this pretty simple to let the penguin really take the spotlight. I inked a stencil from the Snowy Hills Layering stencils to create a confetti background and I love how the Three Presents Die from last November’s Holiday release can be used for birthday as well just by using bright, playful colors.

I created a large present for the penguin to stand on using a Double Stitched Square die and a Stitched Nested Circle die for the polka dots. I die-cut one of the present dies a few times to add ribbon to the large present and added a large bow from the Wreath With Bow die.

I heat embossed all of the ribbons and bows with clear embossing powder for a little shine.

Shore do love you!

Happy Friday!!
We’ve got a blue and gold theme this week at La-La Land Crafts and I immediately thought of Sitting Mermaid Marci. She’s one of my favorite Marci stamps and gave me an opportunity to play with some fun ocean/nautical dies and stamps too!

For the background, I inked from the top with Tumbled Glass, Broken China and Peacock Feathers distress inks. I die-cut a frame, inked it with Tumbled Glass, stamped the anchors with Versamark ink and then heat embossed with gold embossing powder.

I stamped, colored and fussy cut out the images and glued them to the card front .Then, I colored the shells, anchor and net die-cuts with Copics and added them along the bottom. To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment on a small frame die-cut and inked it with Antique Linen distress ink.

Sitting Mermaid Marci Rubber Stamp
Shell and Rocks Rubber Stamp
My Anchor Background Stamp

Take Time For You

Happy Friday! This week’s theme at La-La Land Crafts is Clean and Simple. I’ve always admired the work of those whose primary style is CAS as it can be quite the challenge to get that great balance and know when to say when. I tend to always want to add more!

For my card today, I’ve used the adorable ducky from the Relax & Unwind stamp set and went for a spa-like feel with lots of bubbles. I love a pink, lime green and teal color scheme.

I inked the background with Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough and Peacock Feathers distress inks and then splashed a little water for the bubbles. I inked another piece of white cardstock with Cracked Pistachio and die-cut the Sea Bubbles Border die and then trimmed the ends to fit the background panel. I also die-cut a Stitched Nested Circle die from this piece. A heat embossed sentiment and a bit of pink patterned paper from the Christmas Hodgepodge Paper Pack finished it off.

Easy Peasy!

Tropical Leaves Die
Tiki Hut Island Die
Hibiscus Die
Pierced Scalloped Ovals Die
Double Stitched Hills Border Die
Summer Dress Molli Rubber Stamp
