LLLC: Make a wish

For our La-La Land Crafts project this week we were to use background stamps and stencils. I’ve used two different background stamps and one of the stencils along with two of the clear stamp sets for my project. You can find a list of all the products at the bottom of this post. I’ve used various distress inks for the background stamps, and the circles were embossed. I finally found my embossing mat. I wonder how many years it is since I last used it.. could be as many as 4 or 5 and then I think I only used it a couple of times. I’ll try to do better at embossing like that from now on!

Here is another photo, a bit closer, so you can see the embossed circles better.

My favorite astronaut

I had a little bit of time to craft over Easter, so I even had time to make a card by just playing around after I decided I wanted to enter the current sketch challenge at MFT Stamps. I figured it was time for me to finally use the astronaut stamp set that I’ve had for some time so with that in mind I started to play around with a bunch of my distress oxides. It was a lot of fun to make and I really like how it turned out! Here is the result:

LLLC: Be unique

Here is my final project for the new La-La Land Crafts release, and my favourite! I’ve made a long card and had a lot of fun doing so. The stamp set is called Be Unique so that’s what I was aiming for! I’ve coloured up several things here: the clear stamp unicorn, the rubber stamp castle and the rainbow die. I will definitely be making more of these long cards, I love how it turned out! You can see the entire new release here.

Stamps:
Absolutely Perfect clear stamp
Be Unique clear stamp
Once Upon a Time background stamp

Dies:
Small stars
Stitched rainbow
Row of clouds

A little rainbow to start the year

Happy New Year everyone! I decided to kick start the year with some rainbow colours! There is a new challenge up at Tiddly Inks and the theme is a nice and easy Anything Goes. I’ve used the stamp For The Birds. Also, Christy has updated the Tiddly Inks main blog and it looks fab!

Copics used: R22, R24, R29, R39, E07, E97, Y13, Y38, YG13, YG63, YG67, B32, B34, B37, V12, V15, V17, RV17, RV52, RV55, W0, W3, B60, E70, E71, E74, E77

Smile – happy birthday!

There were three different categories for the MFT Stamps Superstar contest. The third one, which is where I am entering this card is called Innovation Master.

I have made half the card as a rainbow coloured shaker area. I’ve used a bunch of different Distress Oxide inks for the rainbow coloured background and flicked some water onto it with my fingers to get some texture. Then I used the big smile die and cut out the center. I did this on three layers in total (where I cut out the center part on the bottom two) and layered them up with some beads in four different colours to get some of the rainbow effect inside as well.

The stamps I’ve used are from three different stamp sets: Adorable Elephants, Magical Dragons and Birthday Chicks.

Here you can see the card laying down flat and the beads are all over.

And a photo from the side, because why not!

Oh and what copics I used? That will have to be added sometime tomorrow. I am way to tired to write anymore tonight, so I am going to bed! But hey, at least I made the card in time!
