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: Jaws Because

La-La Land CraftsNEW RELEASE is great! And I’m not just saying that because I’m on the team! I have loved working with all the products and making loads of very different cards. There are just so many possibilities and it doesn’t get any better than that, right?!

I’ve used the Seas the Day background stamp to make the background inside the shaker area look like waves in a pale blue colour. Then I’ve glued some coloured in fish on top of that before I’ve added some die cut fish and sequins to make a shaker card. The frame is by using the scalloped rectangles and cutting out the middle part by hand. On top of that I’ve added some of the bigger sea animals from the Jaws Because clear stamp set and used two of the sentiment stamps on the side.

Clean and Simple shaker card… I think I’ll do more as I really quite like this one!

Here is a photo of the card laying flat. You can see all the fish and sequins inside the shaker area.

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.

LLLC: Summer Dress Marci

For this post I’m going to show you the super sweet Summer Dress Marci. She is part of the fabulous NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts. All the products I’ve used on my card are listed on the bottom of this post as well as which Copic Markers I’ve used to colour in Marci.

What I love about this new release is that it is perfect for my favourite colours! I’m talking blues and turquoise. I mean, what could possibly give me a better excuse to play with those colours than a maritime theme with focus on all things sea!?

Instead of using an actual charm, I’ve decided to hang the anchor on the twine, so it is dangling freely.  I’ve also used the My Anchor background stamp twice here, once where I used clear emboss and once with dark blue ink. Oh, btw, It is very easy to combine the ropes and knot dies, like I’ve done here, the ropes are also awesome to use as borders because the detail is great!
