La-La Land Crafts 3D Project

Hi everyone! Today is Friday...the first day of summer vaca for us. My girls are sleeping in this morning. I promised that I would let them sleep as long as they wanted today. 

On to today's project. This week we worked on 3D projects. I went to Pinterest to find a 3D card. I knew there had to be one that I had not made before. 

I was right! This is a version of a box card. HERE is the tutorial that I followed. 

This box card also lays flat for mailing. Just like versions I have made in the passed. 

For the sentiment, I used the thinking of you from the Sympathy Clear Stamp Set

Enchanted Marci is colored with Copic markers. You will find the color combinations listed below.

Reneabouquets ATC

Good morning! How are you this fantastic Monday morning?!? Today is the start of a very busy week for the Goodwin's. Our oldest daughter is graduating from high school Thursday. A YEAR EARLY! I am so very proud of this girl. She is so determined. Her plan is to join the military. As a Mom, that makes me super proud, and if I am being honest, it scares the crap out of me. I am trying to focus on the proud more than the fear. 

Here we go! Today's craft is an ATC. It has been a LONG time since I have made one of these baby's. When an ATC Swap was posted in the Reneabouquets Artist with an Edge Facebook group, I decided I should join. 

I tore a page out of an old book and adhered it to a piece of chip board. Then I used distress inks to color the paper. 

To color and texture the keys and gears, I used Prima's Rust Effect Paste. I used a combination of the Gold, Red and Brown Rust colors. These pastes give such incredible texture! 

Before I colored the background paper, I had picked out this gorgeous butterfly. It fit perfectly with the distress inks and the brownish rust gears. 

I had a lot of fun making this! Steampunk is one of my favorite styles. 

I'm going to let you in on a little the future...I will be hosting a Steampunk Mood Board Challenge in the Reneabouquets Artist with an Edge Facebook group. 😄

Here's a list of Reneabouquets items that I used....

La-La Land Crafts Tropical Paradise

Happy Friday friends! This week we are creating Tropical Paradise projects for La-La Land Crafts. Doesn't that sound wonderful. I don't know about you, but I sure could use a Tropical Paradise vaca. 

I used the new You Inspire Me Boackground Stamp Set to create the blue background. This stamp makes me think of water. 

I used Copic markers to color the image and the die cuts. I know I have said this before, but I love, love, love how the die cuts look when they are colored verses cut out of colored paper. However, it does take more time to color them. 

Below you will find a list of Copic marker combinations, stamps and dies that I used for this project. I am so glad that you stopped in to visit. You have a craftastic day!

La-La Land Crafts New Release Sympathy Card

Hello and happy Friday!! The La-La Land Crafts Friday team is working with the latest release. 

I love the simplicity and elegance of this angel. I colored her with Copic markers. 

The Sympathy Die cut is so pretty. I paired it with the Spring Tree Die because it reminds me of the Tree of Life. 

It's hard to see, but I used the All About Lace Layering Stencils and picket fence distress ink to create the background paper. 

I tried embossing with the stencil...I know it can be done but, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to emboss with my Cut 'N Boss.

La-La Land Crafts New Release April 2019 - Good Vibes Only Clear Stamp Set

Day 3 of this gorgeous La-La Land Crafts release. I think today's card may be my favorite of the three. 

This card is made with the Good Vibes Only Clear Stamp Set. This set also comes with some powerful sentiments.

And check out the background paper! I made that with the NEW You Inspire Me Background Stamp Set. The Tim Holtz Oxide ink works amazing on this stamp. I also used the Oxide ink with the Hearts Harlequin Layering Stencils set.

I colored the image with Copic markers. Coloring darker skin was a little more challenging for me since I don't do it often. I actually threw out my first attempt and had to try a different color combination. The second time, I was happy with the outcome.

It has been fun seeing all the different ways that this images hair has been colored/styled.

Copic markers...
Skin: E25, E04, E35, E13, E11, E21, E00, Blush RV21
Hair: E49, E29, E25, E11
