La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday - Fussy Cutting

Good morning! I'm a little bit late with my La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday post this week - our internet has been absolutely horrendous since last Sunday and we can't get to the bottom of the problem. There is nothing as frustrating as a slow connection, am I right?!! Ugh! 

Anwhoo, this week our theme is FUSSY CUTTING and this is my card....


I kept the card a little bit on the CAS side, using only 2 strips of patterned papers. I created a border around the white card front using my bone folder on the scoring board. The hearts are fussy cut from the papers and they are popped up on foam dots. 

I coloured the image with copic markers: 
Skin - E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair - E51, E53, E55
Shirt - YG21, YG23, YG25
Pants - R24, R43, R46
Shoes - YG21, YG23, YG25. B93, B95, B97
Kite - YG21, YG23, YG25. R24, R43, R46. YG21, YG23, YG25. B93, B95, B97

Luka is also mounted on 3D foam dots so the card has lots of dimension to it. 

The little metal boy charm and twine are both available from my Esty Shop

La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday - Colour Inspiration.

Howdy folks and happy Friday!! It's been one of those weeks - I have a very unwell kiddo out from school and he's kindly passed on his germs to both myself and his dad :/ So this has been a week of getting things done at a much slower pace and involving a lot more effort. Hence being a few hours late with my Inspiration Friday card on La-La Land Crafts. However, I got there in the end and we have a great colour inspiration photo to follow along with....


I decided to use the bright colours and I have featured Groovy Marci along with these Dies - Groovy Elements, Groovy Border, Yin Yang Border on my card. 


The papers are ... I think Basic Grey. I have a few sheets left from the pack but the front of the pack is gone so I'm hazarding a guess here. lol. 

Copic Markers Used: 
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E51, E53, E55
Vest: YG05, YG21, YG23, YG25.
Shirt:YR61, YR65, YR68
Pants: V12, V15, V17
Hairband: Y02, Y04, Y08. RV21, RV23, RV25. YG05, YG21, YG23, YG25.
Belt: RV21, RV23, RV25
Shoes: E71, E74, E77
Tamborine: C3, C5, C7. E71, E74, E77

WOW! Embossing - May Sketch Challenge

We have a great challenge for you over on the WOW! Embossing blog - just follow one of the sketches below and link your project up on this blog post for your chance to win some WOW! Embossing products.


This is my take on the challenge. I chose to follow the top left sketch - 


I used my papers, which are Sweet Pea from Kaisercraft, to create the layout of the sketch and then stamped lightly over the dotty paper with the De-Vine clear stamp and Brushed Corduroy distress ink.  I then cut a stitched oval from another designer paper and finally a cardstock oval on which I stamped my sentiment from the Make a Wish clear stamp set. 

Also from the Make a Wish set, I embossed a butterfly using Gold Satin Pearl powder. I trimmed it out using a scissors and added some gold pearl pen down the 'spine' of the butterfly. 


I die cut some flourishes from cream cardstock and embossed them with Chartreuse powder. I layered on my flourishes and flowers and finished off by adding some more of the gold pearl pen and some cream pearls to the flourishes. 


WOW! Embossing products used:
Stamps - De-Vine, Make a Wish

Remember, if you would like to enter this month's challenge, for your chance to win some WOW! Embossing products, you can find all of the details HERE

Have a great day!
