Superhero box card

So, I got a request to make something. A box card, for a young lad. Considering I hardly every make anything for boys, and never had made this type of box before, of course I had to say yes! Haha.

I followed a great tutorial by Jenny at LaLa Land Crafts. It was very easy to follow and my box looks just like it should!

The products I’ve used are two stamps by Tiddly Inks, My Batty Hero and My Super Boy. They have been coloured in with Copic and then cut out by hand. The stars are by Papirdesign, the Happy, cloud and scalloped circle dies are from La La Land Crafts. Let’s look at the box!

Here you can see the box directly from the front:

From the left side you can see how the images pop up. The boy’s first name has been left on the photos as per the recipient’s request.

And from the right side you can see the bit behind them quite well with the English birthday greeting and die:

Here is a close-up view of the bottom of the box:

See how nicely it folds down? That made it easy to send it by post!

Happy birthday

Monday means it’s time for another LaLa Land Crafts inspirational project. This week our theme is birthday. I think this is my favourite LLLC stamp. Isn’t she adorable? She is called Darling Molli. Definitely one of my favourites. As usual you can find a link to all the LLLC products below the card photo.

This card is made with Maja Design papers which I’ve painted around the edges with white acrylic paint. I printed the word birthday and distressed it with the Tattered Rose colour, as that colour was a pretty good match for the card. The two butterfly dies (aren’t they pretty?!) got a body made out of pearls. The image, which is coloured in with Copic, was cut out by hand and added to the top with foam tape.

I coloured this image in during the 30 day colouring challenge on Instagram and the reason she ended up with bright pink hair is because that is what got the most suggestions when I asked. I love it. Thanks for the great suggestions!

Flamingo love

I was so inspired by the black and white theme at La La Land Crafts this week that I made another two! Technically I made this one first as I got a bit carried away, but I did them both the same day and had a lot of fun doing them.  This one has no stamps at all and no colouring. That doesn’t happen very often!

All the LLLC products will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Here you can see the pearls moved over to another side. It was quite fun making the shaker card. I think I’m getting a hang of them now!

Here is the sentiment with some of the pearls scattered in the shaker bit. I love how versatile the happy birthday sentiment die is and that I can use it for loads of different combinations. I printed out the word Anniversary to go with it for this card. If you don’t have it already, I’d say just get it. It’s perfect!

Guest designer at La La Land Crafts

So. Guess what?! I (somehow) scored a GDT spot at La-La Land Crafts! It came completely out of the blue (for me at least). And as you may see around here.. I’ve only made one card with a LLLC stamp so far and that is one I posted up just a few days ago, and I’ve not had a whole lot of their dies (which are actually really great and now I’m using them all the time!). How exciting, though! I’m very honoured they asked me, and certainly couldn’t say no. Many thanks for the opportunity! Here you will see my first card as a guest designer on their team. There will be a new one every Monday for three months.

And the theme? That was to be black and white! Oh well, may as well jump straight in and do all things I’ve only done once before at the same time, right?! And as I’ve ever made like two shaker cards ever.. why not add a shaker element?!

There will be links to all the LLLC products below the photos.

I actually ended up taking a photo of this card twice as the first one just looked like I’d desaturated the image. So I figured lime green raindrops scattered around would work to show that the card and all is definitely proper black and white!

I used the birthday die twice. Once in black and once in white so that it would stand out a bit more. Then I printed a shorter sentiment to go with it which I placed right above and to the left.

Here you can see the pearls in the shaker part of the card spread out with a closer look at the branches and die in the middle. For the shaker filler I used pearls.

Winter Molli

So, remember I said yes to making two Christmas cards for each month this year? I’m actually still on track. I finished this card in the evening on the 28th February, hahaha! I love adding a snowy effect to the winter themed cards using the acrylic paint. Previously I used to love tearing on the edges, but this is far less dusty!

The stamp is by La La Land Crafts and is called Winter Molli, and so is the tree die. Other products are papers from Maja Design, acrylic paint, Memory Box snowflakes, Baker’s Twine, Kort og Godt charm and cheese cloth.

And the side on view of the card.
