La-La Land Crafts May 2018 Club Kit

Hello La-La Land Craft fans! I have some more May Club Kit inspiration for you today! I have been having so much fun playing with these gnomes! They are so stinking cute! 

I created the gingham background paper and gingham dress using the new Just For You Background Stamp set.  I love gingham! It looks good with everything! 

I colored Marci with Copic markers. 

Copic markers used...
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R20
Hair: E29, E25, E11
Shirt: BG09, BG49, BG13
Hat: R89, R46, R29, R05

Just For You Background Stamp

The second card I made today was a lot of fun. I free handed a mushroom on my card base and then cut it out leaving a bit of the crease intact. I then paper pieced the mushroom stem and top. 

I used the Stitched Nested Circle Die set and the Pierced-Scalloped-Circles-Die set to create the spots on the mushroom top. I inked the edges of the black paper with white ink. 

The dies from this month and the little gnome look so cute with the big mushroom!

Autumn With Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi everyone! I know that we are just getting in to spring, but I saw these leaf stamps at Rubbernecker Stamps and had to color them. 

These leaves are not yet in the shop, but they will be soon and then you'll be able to add them to your collection. 

I colored the leaves with Copic markers. Coloring leaves can be so much fun. I grabbed a bunch of different colors and went to town. Making each one different from the last. 

Fall is one of my favorite seasons. There are so many beautiful colors! That's also when the sunsets start up again here in Alaska. 

Rubbernecker Stamps has a new Facebook group. Come and join us! We are having lots of fun. Challenges, inspiration and friends.

Reneabouquets 3D Garden Party Wheelbarrow Gate Card

Hello friends! It's a gorgeous day here in Alaska. The trees are green and the flowers are in bloom. It's amazing to watch the transformation that happens between winter and spring. I have learned to cherish all of the color and the sun. 

I was able to create a gorgeous garden themed card with the new Beautiful Board 3D Garden Party Wheelbarrow Gate Do It Yourself Chipboard Kit

I am completely in love with this wheelbarrow! Renea really out did herself when creating this piece. There are so many tiny details. Its a very elegant piece of art work.

I added color to the wheelbarrow using Tim Holtz distress inks. Renea has a large selection of distress inks if you are looking to purchase some. They are my favorite medium for adding color to the beautiful board pieces. They blend nicely. 

I recorded a video showing the process that I use with the distress inks, but the video recorded sideways! Unfortunately, I am not very tech savvy and do not know how or even if you can fix that. Sigh...I am chalking that one up to videoing experience. Being that I am so new to recording videos. 

I used some of the mulberry roses from Reneabouquets to create the flower arrangement. 

Once I had everything in place, I sprinkled dry embossing powder over the entire project and used my heat tool to set.

La-La Land Crafts Woodland Wonderland

Hello crafty friends! Today is Friday which means you get some La-La Land Crafts inspiration from me and the rest of the design team. Our theme this week is Woodland Wonderland. 

This new set is one of my favorites! The Woodland Critters are so dang cute.

My Dad worked in the woods most of my childhood. Now, the woods are such a special place for me. It brings back so many great memories of my Dad and all the time we spent together in the woods...camping, riding quads, peeling cascara, picking mushrooms...so many awesome memories.

Anywho, I colored the deer, the twig die cut and the grass/mushroom border with Copic markers. 

I used the Wood Rings Background to make the background paper. I embossed the stamp with white embossing powder and then water colored the paper. It was a lot of fun. I had never tried this technique. 

Copic markers used 
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000, E0000, R30
Hair: E29, E25, E11
Shirt: BG49, BG45, BG15

La-La Land Crafts Thank You Card

Hello friends! It's Friday and the last day of school for my kiddos. I am so excited to have them home for the summer. I had them make lists of things that they wanted to do over the summer. Some of the things on their lists...staying up late and SLEEPING IN, painting rocks, swimming, hiking, and much more. It will be fun helping them fulfill their lists. 

Of course there will be plenty time for Mama to do some crafting. With and without them. I'm sure Echo will want to make some cards with me. 

Cards like this Thank you card that I made for today's La-La Land Crafts inspiration post. 

I thought Super Hero Luka was perfect for a masculine thank you card. I colored him with Copic markers. I totally rocked his hair! Lol...it's not often that I think that about the hair that I color. I really struggle with keeping smooth thin strokes.
