LLLC: B/W with a spot of colour

Friday again means it’s time for another La-La Land Crafts project. This time the theme is black and white with a spot of colour. I chose purple as I think it compliments the black and white quite nicely. I’ve mostly keep away from using loads of greys and gone with contrasts instead. I am really quite pleased how it turned out. You can find all the products listed at the bottom of the page along with the copic colours I’ve used.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

LLLC: Mother’s Day

Friday is now my new designated La-La Land Crafts day. The theme of the week is Mother’s Day. Here we had our Mother’s Day back in February.

I’ve once again coloured up one of their stamps with the no-lines technique. For some reason I seem to prefer colouring their stamps that way. Who knew I’d ever warm up to that feeling! It’s a cool challenge, though, and I’m getting more and more confident with it. I added a little bit of texture to her skirt so it has a bit of a denim feel to it. You can find a link to the stamp and the list of colours below.

I’ve used some Maja Design paper to go with the background stamp from LLLC which I did in a matching purple ink. Isn’t it pretty?! I absolutely love it! The various dies are listed at the bottom of the post. The butterflies are just so pretty and I love that heart die! As I didn’t really have a fitting sentiment I could emboss onto the dark blue background, I simply just wrote it myself! That works, too, right?! The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

Purple Christmas Tilda

One of the two Christmas cards I made for March was a simple one and it features Magnolia’s Tilda. I’ve used a La-La Land Crafts christmas die and a border die by Pretty Pink Posh. I do like my cards clean and simple, and I never make enough purple Christmas cards!

Birthday hippo and elephant

Happy Easter everybody. I decided to take some for myself today and make a card. The stamps I’ve used are by My Favorite Things. Aren’t they adorable? they are from the Happy Hippo og Adorable Elephants sets.

The paper I have used is by Papirdesign, the border die is by Pretty Pink Posh and the birthday die is by La-La Land Crafts.

I decided to go with another clean and simple layout. This is definitely a current favourite, as I’m sure you’ve all figured out by now. Other favourites are these darling stamps and the birthday die.

Here is another photo:

Monsters!

Another boy’s birthday which I needed to make a card for. It almost looks like I’m making a habit out of making boy cards now! This time I decided to use monsters from Your Next Stamp. Aren’t they awesome? I cut them out by hand.

The background is made using Distress Oxide Ink. I then splashed water on it in rather big chunks which created a great contrasting effect. I added the coloured strip to the middle of the card and added the monsters on top so it looks like they’re stood up over the top of the card.

After I took the photos I used an alphabet die set and cut out the boy’s name in dark purple and put it underneath the happy birthday sentiment. The happy birthday sentiment is by My Favorite Things which I embossed in white. And the white dots? They’re candi by Craftwork Cards.

And from the side, where you can also see some of the doodling I did inside.
