LLLC: Dinomates

For the La-La Land Crafts blog this week we are playing with black and turquoise. It is a combination I quite like, and I opted to combine it with a spot of orange and a (for me) new stamp. I thought these dinosaurs were super cute!

Let’s have another photo, because why not!

LLLC: Happy Boo to you, shaker card

It is Friday again already so I am here to show you my latest La-La Land Crafts projects. This time I’ve made a shaker card in black and purple primarily. I think those colours work pretty well for a Halloween themed card. I’ve used loads of the new stamps, and you can find them all listed below.

Here is a close-up of the shaker area when the card is laying down flat.

The sentiment and dies inside the card.

LLLC: Happy Boo to You

Today there is a new La-La Land Crafts release out. Halloween! Yey! Ok, so I don’t really celebrate Halloween, and it’s not a big thing here, but the past couple of years I’ve carved a pumpkin and it’s quite a lot of fun. Looking forward to doing that again this year. Anyway, new release, yey! Let’s take a closer look at some of it. There is even a full sentiment stamp set! Wooo!

I’ve got to say, bright and bold colours with a dash of black silouetted dies… LOVE IT! It’s been quite a lot of fun to play with this release and colours mixed with black. If you haven’t tried doing that, then you really should!

The background is made with distress oxide inks and I’ve used various dies, cut out in black, and a sentiment to get the feel I wanted for the card. Then I used this adorable witch stamp from Happy Boo to You and coloured it in with matching colours and voila! Halloween card done! You can find a list of all the dies (old and new) and stamps listed below.

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.

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!

Dies:
Two Branches die
Happy Birthday die
Pierced Scalloped Circles die
Flamingo 1 die
Flamingo 2 die
