La-La Land Crafts New Release - A Caroling We Will Go

Do you go Christmas caroling? It's not something we do every year, but the years that we have, it's been fun. Part of the reason we don't make this a tradition is because it is so darn cold here in Alaska. 

Ok, I know you're not here to talk about caroling so I will get on with it. Today's card features the NEW A Caroling We Go clear stamp set

These mice carolers are the cutest!! They are not the only critters released this month. Take a look! 

I place the mouse next to my favorite new die. The Lantern Die. I love the way it looks with the flame covered by velum. 

Let's talk a little bit about these gorgeous papers. 

First of all, I love the designs. The quality of this paper is awesome. It's thick, smooth and has a tiny bit of shine to it. It's great for distressed edges. Like on the first card I did for this release.

La-La Land Crafts New Release - Santa Mona

Good morning!! I am here this morning with La-La Land Crafts NEW RELEASE! I am so in love with this release! I have been so inspired that every card has come together without much thought at all. 

My first card is showcasing the new Santa Mona. 

I built a Christmas tree using the Three Christmas Trees Die. I cut the trees apart and then layered them on top of each other. I love the dimension I was able to achieve. 

I used the bulb paper from the Blue Christmas Paper Pack for the ornaments. I fussy cut each one glued it to the tree and then added a twine bow. 

I am super happy with how this card turned out. I'm not going to lie, it took quite a bit of time to build that tree and fussy cut the bulbs, but it was well worth it. 

Ok, if you haven't already, you HAVE to take a look at this release. So many cute stamps and dies!

Fall Colors with La-La Land Crafts

Good morning everyone! How are you this fabulous Friday morning? I am a bit exhausted to tell the truth. We have been remodling our bathroom. 

My husband is sort of a jack of all trades. This is the first time he has ever done tile, but I always have faith in him to do a good job. We should be done with everything next week. 

Let's get on with this Friday's inspiration post. We are working with fall colors this week at La-La Land Crafts

This time of year makes me think about baking. We bake a lot and share with others. 

I love the sentiment that Baker Marci comes with. It's so and cookies...I'm good. 

I used the Stitched Nested Circles Die to make the chocolate chip cookies. I used Nuvo to make the chocolate chips. I love that they actually stick up off the paper.

La-La Land Crafts So Grateful For You

Good morning friends! It's the first day of November. Before you know it, Christmas will be here. 

I am excited for the next couple of months. I am always excited for the holidays, but we have a lot of fun things going on to finish out 2019.  

Anyway, on to today's card. The La-La Land Crafts design team is working on Gratitude/Thanksgiving cards. 

I used Autumn Marci. I used Copic markers to color her. 

Here's a picture of her before I put the leaves on the card. 

I love her outfit. I think I might need one like it. With a longer skirt.

La-La Land Crafts Zombie Shaker

Hi friends! I am back from Copic Boot Camp. Let me tell you that it was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!! I learned new techniques, got new crafting goodies, and made lots of new crafty friends. 

One of the images we worked on is Barefoot Luka from La-La Land Crafts. As I was coloring Luka's face, one of my markers dripped. I'm sure you know how frustrating that is. I had to figure out a way to fix it. My friend Cristena was sitting next to me...I jokingly said I could make him a pirate. She came back with "or a zombie." Genius! 

That's what I did...I made Barefoot Luka into a zombie. 

In Boot Camp, Jennifer Dove taught us how to do a few different backgrounds. Backgrounds are challenging for me, but I enjoy pushing myself to new limits. 

To make Luka's flannel I colored the shirt red with Copics. Leaving a white area for the tares in it. After the Copic ink dried, I used a white gel pen and a black sharpie to add the lines in the flannel. 

Here's a picture of the coloring before I made it into a shaker card. 

Coloring this image was so much fun! It didn't turn out how I had orginally planned but, sometimes we have to change plans as we go.
