La-La Land Crafts Steampunk Card

Hello there! It's Friday and I am here with some mixed media inspiration. Our theme this week at La-La Land Crafts is anything goes.  I was thrilled when I saw that. 

You all know that Steampunk is one of my favorite styles. It's been a long time since I have created anything Steampunk. Steampunk Molli was what inspired me. 

Have I told you how awesome the La-La Land Crafts dies are?! They can cut through two pieces of card stock at once. I have also used them to cut thin chipboard. 

Chipboard is what I used for the rusty looking pieces. 

Here's a closeup of the yummy textures.

To create the textured rusty pieces I used Prima pastes. The texture is actually in the paste. I love this stuff! 

I did a full tutorial video on this card. If you'd like to see it, hop on over to my YouTube and take a look! 

Thank you for stopping by. Have a craftastic weekend!

Happy Birthday From La-La Land Crafts

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear...

This week at La-La Land Crafts we are celebrating birthdays. Each one of the Friday design team members has made a birthday project to inspire you. Check out the blog post here...

Here is the card that I made.

I decided to make the main color of my card yellow. Yellow is such a happy color. 

It really wasn't that long ago that I discovered the PAPER DOLLS that La-La Land Crafts has. I instantly fell in love. My favorite part...the little heart on their cheek. 

For this birthday card, I used Paper Doll Marci Birthday. I colored her with Copic markers. You will find the markers that I used posted below. 

I distressed the edges of the cardstock with a paper distressing tool. I am a huge fan of distressed paper.

This purse is what I did my tutorial on. The video includes the coloring of Marci.

La-La Land Crafts We Celebrate You Card

Hello friends! How are you this fine Friday morning? Let me tell you...IT IS FREAKING COLD here in Palmer Alaska. We have had temps under 0 for the last week. As cold as -25 degrees! 

Needless to say, I have had lots of time indoors sitting in front of the fireplace with my Copics. 

The La-La Land Crafts Friday team is making clean and simple projects this week. Believe it or not, this clean and simple card took me as long to make as some of my more detailed cards. Clean and simple is just not simple for me. 

I sure do like the look of clean and simple though. 

I was having a hard time deciding what to do with Marci's outfit so I went to Pinterest. Pinterest never lets me down! I saw a little girl wearing a shirt with a kitty face. I thought that would be perfect with cheetah print! 

Now that I am looking at Marci, I should have made her pockets pink with cheetah print too. Next time!

As I promised in my first December Club Kit post, I did a video on coloring Courage Marci. I am excited to be doing more videos. The more I do the easier the editing is becoming. 

If you'd like to see the video...head over to my YouTube channel!

I love being able to create my background papers. There are so many possibilities with the number of stencils that La-La Land Crafts has.

La-La Land Crafts Owl Always Love You

Happy New Year! I hope your year is off to a good start. Mine sure is. I have gotten some coloring time in which always makes me a little more relaxed and happy. 

This week the La-La Land Crafts Friday Team were to make a New Year or inspirational card. What is more inspirational than letting someone you care about know that they are loved? 

I went through the La-La Land Crafts stamps and finally settled on Owl Hat Marci Rubber Stamp

That hat is just adorable! My daughter Kylah had one just like it when she was little. She adored owls. She has now moved on to llamas. 

I was thankful to find the perfect color of cardstock to match the color of Marci's clothes. I didn't have the right color of ink for the hearts though. 

Improvise, adapt and overcome...that's what my husband always says. He is a former Marine. 

With that in mind, I took the dusty concord Distress Ink and victorian velvet Distress Ink...I first put a soft layer of the dusty concord ink down and then the victorian velvet. The combination of the two colors made the perfect color for the hearts. 

I colored Marci with Copic markers. All the combinations are listed below. 

If you are interested in seeing coloring video's, I am starting to do a few of them. Take a look at my youtube channel. Make sure you subscribe so you can see when I post new videos!
