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.

Pink Azalea

Another clean and simple card from me today. This time I’ve made a card using one of the flower stamps from Power Poppy. I had a bit of a accident with my copics right at the end when colouring it up, a big massive near-black coloured blob. I managed to fix it, mostly, and then I fussy cut the image. The background it something I made using one of the pink distress oxide inks and a heart stencil, and the text stamp is by Huldra Designstudio.

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: Pretty Diamonds

The NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts has stencils! And not just any stencils… they come in pairs, so you can use both together or one at a time! How cool is that?!

I’ve used a lighter blue on one of the stencils, then lined the the other over the top and used a darker blue. I think it’s a pretty cool stencil, and you can use one of them several times or use them together as you like. Great way to get multiple colours also! Aaaand they can be used for embossing as well. Unfortunately I don’t have any samples of that myself as I have misplaced my rubber mat somewhere… or it’s hiding.. I’m not sure!

The card is pretty simple. I do like my CAS cards! The life preserver die was cut out in white and then I coloured it in. I think it adds a nice splash of colour on the mostly blue and white card.

Stamps:
Seas the Day background stamp (top sentiment)
Best Mates clear stamp
Jaws Because clear stamp (bottom sentiment)

Dies:
Life Preserver
Sea Flags
Heart Anchor

Grow a little love, CAS

First Tuesday of the month meeeaaans new Tiddly Inks challenge, yey! Our theme this month is Give Love.

Tiddly Inks challenge means Tiddly Inks image, and it wasn’t hard to pick one of my favourites for this. It is called Grow a Little Love. I made a circular frame for her and cropped her to fit inside it, and with her hair peeking slightly outside it looks like a big speech bubble! I coloured in with Copics and made the heart background using distress oxide ink and a heart stencil from Carta Bella. The sentiment and hearts are from a TCP Studio stamp set which I embossed onto the card. A Magnolia border die and some pearls helped finishing off the card.

Copics used: (hair) E70, E74, E77, (skin) E00, E02, E04, E13, E15, (dark pink) RV14, R35, R39, R89, (pink) RV00, R81, R83, R85 + white gel pen
