LLLC: Jaws Because CAS

This week I got to see loads of cards by the super talented Elin! She’s a master at clean and simple cards and I thought it is about time I make a card that is properly inspired by her. It was about time I made another clean and simple card anyway!

So, a cluster in a corner, loads of open space (although with waves and not white). I even used blue card stock for the base instead of white!

We’re still showing off the new La-La Land Crafts release. I decided to go with one of my favourites, the whale from the Jaws Because clear stamp set. The background is also made with one of the new stamps, the Seas the Day background stamp, which I used Memento Ink on in the Summer Sky colour.

Here is a photo straight from the front of the card.

And a photo of it laying down, with a close-up of the colouring and the cluster.

LLLC: My Anchor

I’ve also made a card where I have used only the stamps provided with the My Anchor background stamp set from the NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts. The big background stamp has been stamped with embossing ink onto light blue card stock and then I’ve used clear embossing powder on it. I have then stamped on the smaller fish with two different shades of blue before stamping the anchor onto the card base also and coloured it in with a few copics.

The embossed borders and the card base have been separated by the ropes die, and I’ve added some pink fish dies for a bit of contrast. The sentiment is also from this background stamp set.

LLLC: Funky Squares

Ok, I admit it, I’ve used my favourite colours a lot for this NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts. Soooo, it is time to bring in the other colours, I think. How about… a rainbow?!

Here I have used both of the stencils that were included in the set at the same time. I simply used some masking tape to tape them onto the card base so they wouldn’t move around too much. I then used various different distress ink colours going from a red and all through the rainbow over to purple.

To make Summer Dress Molli match (with what I think is a super cool background!) I gave her a two-tone dress going from purple to yellow highlights. To keep with the funky squares theme I used the fishing net die as well. And to add a bit more of the purple and yellow, I decided to make the banners in those colours in bright shades.

LLLC: Best Mate

There are clear stamps in this NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts as well! Wooo! I think the three sets are super cute. Today I’m going to show you the one called Best Mates.

For this release I’ve tried to make a variation of cards, so there are some CAS, some layered, some shakers, some with transparent areas etc. For this one I decided on a reasonably clean and simple card.  I’ve used the My Anchor background stamp to make the strip on the side, and the other background stamp, Seas the Day to make the biggest sentiment. All the animals have matching hats and uniform!

I’ve coloured up all the stamps in the set, as you can see below, just to give you an idea of how they can look.

LLLC: Water Ripples

So, the NEW RELEASE stencils at La-La Land Crafts are so good! I really do love how you can use one over the other to get a cool effect. Let me show you!

Did you see my card yesterday with the see-through area? Well, I’ve made another! This time the water in the back is made with the new Water Ripples stencil! Which, btw, I absolutely love. Doesn’t it look so pretty? I only used two different colours of distress ink as well. Loving it!

I’ve used various stamps from the Jaws Because clear stamp set to add loads of sea creatures to the card. Most of the coloured images are on the front, and I’ve added most of the die cuts inside the card.

Here you can see the card at an angle, so it is easier to see how I have done the front part with the see-through area.
