Celebrating Birthdays with La-La Land Crafts

Good morning and happy Friday! Today at La-La Land Crafts We are celebrating birthday's. I decided that I would give Balloon Frenchie a go. 

I hadn't colored one of the Frenchie Stamps yet, so I went to Pinterest for some inspiration. OMG!!! These dogs are so stinking cute! I am now trying to talk Andrew into buying me one. We will see how that goes =)

I made sure to give Balloon Frenchie wrinkles like I saw in the pictures. Adding wrinkles, folds and patterns is so easy to do with Copic markers. One of the reasons that they are my go to coloring medium. 

All the dies I used for today's cards are from La-La Land Crafts. You will find them listed below with the Copic colors that I used. 

Please pop in and join us in the La-La Land Crafts Facebook group. We have a lot of fun and you are sure to find lots of inspiration. 

You may also be interested in knowing that La-La Land Crafts is having a Design Team Call for the new Club La-La Land Crafts. You can find all the details here...

La-La Land Crafts is an amazing company to be a Design Team Member for! I am super excited to see the company growing!

Rubbernecker Dinosaur Stamp Set

Hi everyone! Sharing a boy card that I made using some of the new stamps that are coming to Rubbernecker Stamps.  I am loving these little dinosaurs! They are perfect for any kiddo. 

Making cards for boys is always a little harder for me. This one though, it was super simple! And a ton of fun. 

Have you heard of Color Bursts? They are a powdered color that you watercolor with. I have had some for awhile, but I haven't played with them until I made this card. They are so much fun! Rubbernecker Stamps has several different sets of Color Bursts to choose from.

For the lava, I used watered down red acrylic paint.

Make sure to pop on over to the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog to see what challenges we have going on. You don't want to miss out on the chance to win free Rubbernecker products!

Thank you so much for stopping by today. You will find a list of all the Rubbernecker items that I used below. EXCEPT for the stamps. They will be in the shop soon!

Going to the Beach with La-La Land Crafts

Hello crafty friends! Today is Friday which means the La-La Land Crafts Friday team is coming to you with some great inspiration! This weeks theme is Nature. 

There are so many different directions to go with this theme. I decided to go with a beach card. There is always lots of nature at the beach! 

The Oceans of Joy Rubber Stamp was the perfect stamp for what I had in mind. I colored the stamp and the beach theme with Copic markers. 

It's been soooo long since I have been to the beach. It has always been one of my favorite places. We spent a lot of time at the beach when I was a kid. 

I really had a lot of fun with this theme/coloring. The scene was one of the Kit and Clowder monthly coloring classes a couple years ago. I have colored this one a couple times. 

I have learned so much from the monthly classes at Kit and Clowder. I highly recommend them.

Reneabouquets Luna Dream Catcher Card

Good morning! It is Spring Break here in Alaska. Usually, I make the kids spring clean their bedrooms. This year we are taking on a different project. A bigger project! My craftroom! We are completely redoing my craftroom. 

See, my craftroom has grown immensely over the last 10 years. I started out with one plastic dresser full of stuff and I would work on my dining room table. Then we moved to Alaska and my craft space grew a lot! I had a portion of the downstairs living room which consisted of my own table a dresser and a couple book cases. Now, I have my own room! I have had this room for almost 5 years. I have been so thankful for my space. It's not a very pretty space though. So, we are painting the walls and furniture (so I can at least make believe that it goes together). My husband is building some shelving too. I am so excited! I will share pictures of before and after in my Facebook Group Toadally Love To Craft once we are done. 

Ok! On to today's card. When Renea released the Luna Dream Catcher I knew I had to work with it. It is such a unique and beautiful piece. 

I had the perfect papers to go with Luna Dream Catcher. I glued the Beautiful Board piece onto the cardstock and then surrounded it with Reneabouquets beautiful flowers. (which I had died with ink sprays) 

I used a Tim Holtz splatter pain brush to splatter blue paint over the card and the flowers. 

Many more of Reneabouquets items were used to make this card. You will find a list below.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a craftastic day!

Black and White with La-La Land Crafts

Hello! Hello! Hello! Today is Friday! Which means it's time for inspiration from La-La Land Crafts
The theme we were given this week was black and white. Easy peasy right?! Yeah, for me...not so much. I started out by making a book mark, but I didn't like it. Thankfully, my girls loved it and took it off my hands. 

I decided to walk away and give it a little more thought. This is what I came up with...

I used the adorable Jaunty Luka Rubber Stamp. He looks like a little stud in his outfit. 

I colored Jaunty Luka with Copic markers. I wasn't sure about the pattern I put on his clothes at first, but I think it's grown on me. 

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

Hi crafty friends! I'm popping in to share a card that I made using Butterfly Kisses from AandMMemoriesDesigns.

Rubbernecker Mini Hippo Stamp Set

Good morning! I hope you all had a nice, restful weekend. 

Rubbernecker Stamps is going to be getting in new stamps this month! Let me tell you, there are soooo many must have sets! I am super excited to be able to share a sneak peak of one of the new clear rubber stamp sets. 

When I saw this Mini Hippo set, I fell in love! The hippos have so much character. You can't help but smile when you look at them. 

I colored the hippos with Copic markers and fussy cut them. 

For this card, I was able to create matching background paper using the gift stamp in the hippo set. This is the first time I have made my own background paper. It was a lot of fun. You have tons of options. 

To create the center piece for the hippos on the colorful card, I used both the Nested Circle Die Cut Set and the Nested Circle Scalloped with Holes Die Set

Be on the look out for this adorable stamp set and many more coming to Rubbernecker Stamps soon!

Thank you for stopping by. 
Have a craftastic day!
