Papernest Doll's Baker Ellie

Hello PND fans! I'm back with a card for you! 

The card I am sharing with you today is made with Baker Ellie

I really had a lot of fun coloring this image. I used Copic markers like usual, but I was a little creative with the shading. Notice how the shading in her hat is grey and pink? I first used the W6, W3, W1 Copic combination and then went over that with R32. I love the way it turned out! 

The dies I used are from La-La Land Crafts. The links are below...

Monochromatic With La-La Land Crafts

 Hello! Happy Friday! I'm not sure about you, but once the kids go back to school, after summer vacation, the weeks seem to go by super fast. Maybe it's the change of the seasons. Here in Alaska, Fall comes shortly after they return to school and winter is only 6-8 weeks after that. 

Anywho, let's get on with today's crafting post! This week our theme was monochromatic. I had never colored an image like this before. The first thing I did was go to the dictionary and look monochromatic up...

1) having one color.
2) having tones of one color in addition to the ground hue
Then I headed to Pinterest. This is where I discovered that you could choose any color you wanted for monochrome. I had only seen it done with brown tones before. As excited as I was to see that, I decided to go with brown tones because that is what I like best. 

I used Copic marker combination E49, E29, E25, E31, E21, E00 to color Autumn Marci. I love how you can make different colors using just a few markers. I think I will try this technique again using different combinations. For now, if you would like to see the same technique done in different colors, head on over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog. The DT did an awesome job of using different colors. You'd think we talked about it, but we didn't. 

Here's a list of the La-La Land Crafts items that I used...

Thank you so much for stopping by to see me! Hope you have a craftastic weekend!

But First Sloffee

Hi everyone! Happy Friday. 

This week at La-La Land Crafts the team is doing back to school projects. If you look at my card, that is probably not the first thing that you think I right? 

I's a coffee themed card. When I started thinking about back to school, I was thinking about all the teachers getting up early and needing coffee before they tackled their first day back at work. Therefore, the coffee themed card is a back to school card. 

I started out by making my background papers. I used the tiny coffee cup in the Take it Sloth Clear Stamp Set and the So Many Dots Layering Stencil to make the coffee paper. The heart paper was made with the Hearts Forever Background Stamp Set. 

I was a complete disaster after I made the heart paper. My red ink pad is super juicy. I had ink all over my hands, which ended up all over my papers and then on my tables and on some of my tools. I'm not sure if any of you are a mess like that after working with distress inks, but I cannot work with them without getting them everywhere. 

The image, the coffee cups and the spots are all colored with Copic markers. You will find the color combinations below. 

Copic markers
Coffee Cup Background Paper: E13, E31, BG75, BG72
Sloth: E49, E25, E33, E43, E42, E40
Branch: E43, E42, E25, G99, G94, YG23, YG11
Heart: R39, R37, R29

Gone Fishing With La-La Land Crafts

Good morning! I cannot believe how fast the last week has gone. I have been busy with hunting, canning, and appointments. We did take an entire day and go to the State Fair. That was a lot of fun. 

In all the craziness, I did fit in a little coloring and crafting time. Crafting time is always much needed. Even if it is for a design team assignment. 

This week the La-La Land Crafts designers are creating with Background Stamps and Stencils. This was a really fun theme. Easy to do with the quickly growing collection that La-La Land Crafts has. 

I went to the Rubber Stamp section on the La-La Land Crafts site to find an image that I had never used before. That's where I stumbled on to the Gone Fishing Luka Rubber Stamp.

I just had to use him. 1) because my husband loves fishing. 2) because he is so dang cute and 3) because Luka just doesn't get used enough! 

I colored Luka and the background with Copic markers. This is one of those times that I impressed myself with my coloring. Hahahaha...I find that I am always my worst critic, but I was super happy with this guy. 

You will find the color combinations towards the end of the post. 

All of the background papers were made using La-La Land Crafts Background Stamps and Stencils.

Anything But A Card With La-La Land Crafts

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! This week at La-La Land Crafts, we are making anything but a card. about a tag?! Hahaha...not original, but's cute! 

I used one of the little piggy stamps again. They are so cute!! 

I have been asking my husband if we can get a potbelly pig, but he says no. I guess the 2 dogs, 3 cats, 4 foster kittens and frog that we have are enough pets for him 😂 So for now, I will settle on coloring pigs from La-La Land Crafts

I colored the pig with Copic markers. You will find the color combinations that I used listed below.

Happy Birthday from La-La Land Crafts

Hello! How are you this Friday morning? Things are now quiet around the Goodwin house. The girls went back to school yesterday. We now have a 7th grader and a 3rd grader. It's such an awesome feeling having two of the four graduated already. 

Anyway, on to the crafting! This week the La-La Land Crafts Crew is making birthday cards. 

I found some cute coordinating papers and went to town cutting dies. I think the card turned out pretty cute. I am in love with the little pig! 

This card will probably be going to my sister-in-law since she loves pigs. She has collected them for years.

La-La Land Crafts Club Kit Birthday Bash August 2019

Good afternoon! Today I have a special post for you! 
Did you know that La-La Land Crafts Club Kits have been being released for 5 years?! Well, today we are having a birthday bash! My sweet friend Cristena, asked me to guest design. Of course, I said YES! I love working with the club kits. 

Check out the Club Kit for this month! It's all about birthday's to celebrate the 5th year of these wonderful kits. 

I made two projects to showcase the stamps and dies in the new kit. 

I love all the little creatures put together in a group. You could create quite the party scene with this stamp! 

I went with a lot of black and white with a pop of blue color for this card. I love the way it turned out. I'll be sending this one off to my nephew in just a few weeks. He's turning 6. 

The next card I made is a box card. I don't often make these cards well, because I am lazy. It's true. I am a super lazy crafter. 

I love these cards, but it does take a little more time and effort on my part to make them. I need to get over that because They always turn out super cute! 

I colored the stamps with Copic markers. Since Marci is mostly hidden, I thought I'd show you what she looked like before she went onto the card. 

I absolutely love making sparkly dresses! I color the dress like normal and then I use the colorless blender to make a few spots. After that I add in spots and sparkles with a white gel pen.
