LLLC: Santa’s Helper Baby Luka

Blue is my favourite colour for Christmas, so of course one of the new release cards had to be blue! I used the cute Santa’s Helper Baby Luka with some Maja Design Paper, distress inks and Copics with a dash of white acrylic paint. La-La Land Crafts has some really super new Christmas products and you can see which ones I used at the bottom of the post.

LLLC: Deck the Halls

Ok, so I am a little bit late to the party this time. Life took a rather unexpected turn a couple of weeks ago leaving me in a bit of a daze and all projects were put on hold until I felt like doing anything with it. All my card making things were as they were on the table and the floor and although I had completed a few cards for the new release, I never got a chance to blog about them. Until now.

La-La Land Crafts had the most adorable Christmas release out this month. I love the hippos so much. Who doesn’t need Christmas hippos, right?! They have some cute other stamps, too, and I’ll show some of those in posts the coming days along with some really cool dies. Besides, we all know by now that I love Christmas, right?

Friday again! That means it’s time for another theme. This time I am the one hosting the theme at the La-La Land Crafts blog as well and we’re all making projects with Sand, Surf and Sun.

Party girls

Someone special had her birthday recently and this seemed to be the perfect image for her birthday card. I used one of my favourite stamps by Stamping Bella and coloured it in with copic as usual. If you’d like to get a similar glittery effect as I have on the dresses, then the technique is the same as I’ve got in the sparkly dress tutorial (which you can find a link to in the tutorial section).

I’ve used a die from Papirdesign, and text stamp by Huldra Stamps. The card is kept mostly clean and simple, just the way I like it.

Here is card laid down flat.

Copics used: (girl on the left) E41, E42, E43, E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, B0, R22, R24, R27, R29, R59, (girl on the right) E08, E18, E19, E49, E97, E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, BV20, BV23, BV25, BV29, RV52, RV55, RV66, B0
