Club La-La Land Crafts June 2019 Club Kit


Hello!  Today, I'm back sharing two more fun cards using the NEW Club La-La Land Kit!  Remember, you must subscribe before June 19th if you want this exact kit.  You can find all the info HERE!  

For my first card, I kept things pretty simple so that the stamps and dies would really take center stage.  First I trimmed a piece of white card stock into a rectangle and mounted it on top of the largest scalloped rectangle die cut with red card stock.  Then I trimmed a strip of wood grain patterned paper and adhered that to the bottom of my panel to mimic a table top.  I colored up my chihuahuas and cut them out with my Scan N Cut 2.  Then I die cut my queso, guacamole, and taco.  I used distress inks to give them some interest, layered them together and arranged the elements on my card.  Then I added my FIESTA word die and layered it on top of die cut fun foam.  To finish the card, I added lots of little triangles from the center of the lime die and added some white accents with my gel pen.

My next card features Fiesta Marci.  For this card I started with a simple striped patterned paper and trimmed it into a square to fit my card base.  Then I layered some navy blue card stock behind it.  I used my circle die to cut some patterned paper and layered that on top of a green scalloped circle.  Then I adhered that to the left side of my panel and trimmed of the excess with my scissors.  I colored up Marci and cut her out with my Scan N Cut 2.  Then I adhered her to the center of the circle.  I die cut my fiesta word from navy blue card stock, layered it on top of some fun foam and adhered that across the bottom of my card.  Then I stamped out my sentiment, trimmed it into a rectangle, layered it on top of some mint card stock and popped it underneath the fiesta word.  To finish my card off, I added a page flag to the top right corner of the card, popped my taco die on top, and added a few enamel dots.

La-La Land Crafts New Release!

Hello!  Today, I'm back sharing another fun card using the NEW Release from La-La Land Crafts!  There are so many adorable NEW stamps, dies, and stencils in this release, it's hard for me to choose a favorite!  

For my card today I decided to create a little hen house for my chicks!  First I used the clouds die to stencil in my background.  Then I added my dirt using the double stitched hills die.  I pieced together my hen house using the door die to cut my opening and layering some dark brown paper in behind it.  Then I used the bottom of the garden gate die to create two legs for it.  I colored up my images, cut them out with my Scan N Cut 2 and popped them on to my scene using foam tape.  I also used some of the new dies in my background including the vines and gate die.  I just love how this turned out.  Too cute!

Club La-La Land Crafts June Kit Reveal!


Hello!  It's reveal day at Club La-La Land Crafts!  This month's kit is all about FIESTA!  It includes a super sweet Marci stamp, three chihuahuas, lots of sentiments, a fiesta word die, bowl of guacamole die, and a taco die!  How fun is that!  Remember, you have until June 19th to sign up for this exact kit so be sure to subscribe HERE!  

For my first inspiration card, I masked Marci with two of the chihuahuas.  I colored them up with my Copics and cut them out using my Scan N Cut 2.  Then I started working on the background of my card.  First I trimmed a piece of green card stock to fit my card base.  Then I used the All About Lace Layering Stencils to create a tone on tone background.  I did the same thing with the red, but layered that on white card stock.  Then I added a cobblestone floor using a background stamp.  To give it a little contrast I added the Mandala Doily cut in white card stock in between the layers.  Then I popped my images on top with foam tape, added my "fiesta" word die, and a couple of die cut tacos.  I stamped my sentiment on a piece of white card stock and die cut it into a circle.  To finish it all off, I added some enamel dots and a ton of little triangles from the lime die.

For my second card, I decided to create a business size card.  I trimmed some polka dot patterned paper to fit and layered that on top of black card stock.  Then I arranged my dogs and food in a line across the middle of the card, using foam tape to pop up the chihuahuas.  Then I slipped to strips of patterned paper underneath them and layered my fiesta sentiment on top of that.  To finish it off, I added some enamel dots.

La-La Land Crafts In The Garden Marci




Hello!  Today, I have the cutest little Marci Card to share with you!  This is In The Garden Marci and she is part of the new June Release at La-La Land Crafts!  

For my card, I chose some fun and bright summer colors.  First, I colored up my image and cut it out using my scan N Cut 2.  Then I trimmed a piece of white card stock to fit my card base and stenciled a red plaid background.  Then I used the cloud die to stencil in a cloud background on another piece of white card stock.  I added a die cut fence, some grass, vines,  and flowers to my scene.  Then I popped Marci on top with some foam tape.  I stamped my sentiment in the top right corner and layered the whole piece on top of a blue die cut doily.  For a little extra interest, I added a yellow scallop die to the left side of my card.

La-La Land Crafts Best of Cluck!


Hello!  I'm back again today featuring another fun stamp set from the NEW June Release at La-La Land Crafts!  Today, it's all about chickens!!  The NEW Best of Cluck Stamp set is all kinds of fun with two mother hen stamps, 4 baby chicks, and lots of matching sentiments!  

For my card, I created a little farm scene!  First I used the NEW Daisies on My Mind Layering Stencil to create by background.  Then I layered on a little barn using the Country Hill Die.  In the foreground, I created a fun little scene complete with picket fence, vines, grass, flowers and of course...chickens!  After layering together the whole panel, I stamped a daisy background and adhered it on top.  I just love how fun this is!

CC Designs Tutorial- How to Create a Total Background Using the Clouds and Grasses Stencil

Hello!  Today, I'm so excited to share a fun tutorial using the NEW Clouds and Grasses Stencil from CC Designs!  This stencil is an absolute MUST!  You can create so much with it! 


Step #1: Gather your supplies.  You will need the Clouds and Grasses Stencil, colored ink (light blue, green, and darker blue), a blending tool (brushes or sponges), smooth white card stock. 


Step #2: Use the lightest blue ink and cloud side of stencil to create clouds on top portion of the card stock.  To get a more natural look, blend ink in selected spots instead of all the way across the stencil.  Vary the position of the stencil and chosen areas for blending. 


Step #3: Clean ink off of stencil with a baby wipe and dry.  Then use green ink and grass side of stencil to create a grassy hill in the middle of the card stock.  Use the straight grassy side just below it to add some depth to your scene. 


Step #4: Clean green ink from stencil.  Use darker blue ink and the cloud side of stencil to create waves at the bottom of the card stock.  Flip the stencil upside (I'm creating a grassy scene here, but this is also a great way to create a beach scene). 


Step #5: Clean stencil.  Allow card stock to dry for about 30 min.  Then use colored images to create a fun card.  Here, I've used images from the April & May Stamp Set to create my spring scene. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!
