Going to the Beach with La-La Land Crafts

Hello crafty friends! Today is Friday which means the La-La Land Crafts Friday team is coming to you with some great inspiration! This weeks theme is Nature. 

There are so many different directions to go with this theme. I decided to go with a beach card. There is always lots of nature at the beach! 

The Oceans of Joy Rubber Stamp was the perfect stamp for what I had in mind. I colored the stamp and the beach theme with Copic markers. 

It's been soooo long since I have been to the beach. It has always been one of my favorite places. We spent a lot of time at the beach when I was a kid. 

I really had a lot of fun with this theme/coloring. The scene was one of the Kit and Clowder monthly coloring classes a couple years ago. I have colored this one a couple times. 

I have learned so much from the monthly classes at Kit and Clowder. I highly recommend them.

Reneabouquets Luna Dream Catcher Card

Good morning! It is Spring Break here in Alaska. Usually, I make the kids spring clean their bedrooms. This year we are taking on a different project. A bigger project! My craftroom! We are completely redoing my craftroom. 

See, my craftroom has grown immensely over the last 10 years. I started out with one plastic dresser full of stuff and I would work on my dining room table. Then we moved to Alaska and my craft space grew a lot! I had a portion of the downstairs living room which consisted of my own table a dresser and a couple book cases. Now, I have my own room! I have had this room for almost 5 years. I have been so thankful for my space. It's not a very pretty space though. So, we are painting the walls and furniture (so I can at least make believe that it goes together). My husband is building some shelving too. I am so excited! I will share pictures of before and after in my Facebook Group Toadally Love To Craft once we are done. 

Ok! On to today's card. When Renea released the Luna Dream Catcher I knew I had to work with it. It is such a unique and beautiful piece. 

I had the perfect papers to go with Luna Dream Catcher. I glued the Beautiful Board piece onto the cardstock and then surrounded it with Reneabouquets beautiful flowers. (which I had died with ink sprays) 

I used a Tim Holtz splatter pain brush to splatter blue paint over the card and the flowers. 

Many more of Reneabouquets items were used to make this card. You will find a list below.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Hope you have a craftastic day!

Black and White with La-La Land Crafts

Hello! Hello! Hello! Today is Friday! Which means it's time for inspiration from La-La Land Crafts
The theme we were given this week was black and white. Easy peasy right?! Yeah, for me...not so much. I started out by making a book mark, but I didn't like it. Thankfully, my girls loved it and took it off my hands. 

I decided to walk away and give it a little more thought. This is what I came up with...

I used the adorable Jaunty Luka Rubber Stamp. He looks like a little stud in his outfit. 

I colored Jaunty Luka with Copic markers. I wasn't sure about the pattern I put on his clothes at first, but I think it's grown on me. 

Here's a list of the La-La Land Crafts items that I used.

Rubbernecker Mini Hippo Stamp Set

Good morning! I hope you all had a nice, restful weekend. 

Rubbernecker Stamps is going to be getting in new stamps this month! Let me tell you, there are soooo many must have sets! I am super excited to be able to share a sneak peak of one of the new clear rubber stamp sets. 

When I saw this Mini Hippo set, I fell in love! The hippos have so much character. You can't help but smile when you look at them. 

I colored the hippos with Copic markers and fussy cut them. 

For this card, I was able to create matching background paper using the gift stamp in the hippo set. This is the first time I have made my own background paper. It was a lot of fun. You have tons of options. 

To create the center piece for the hippos on the colorful card, I used both the Nested Circle Die Cut Set and the Nested Circle Scalloped with Holes Die Set

Be on the look out for this adorable stamp set and many more coming to Rubbernecker Stamps soon!

Thank you for stopping by. 
Have a craftastic day!

Spring is Here! with La-La Land Crafts

Good morning! Today I am sharing a La-La Land Crafts card. The theme for the DT this week was spring. Aaahhh...Spring. That has a nice sound to it. Here in Palmer Alaska, we have about a foot and a half of snow. What's in the for cast for this weekend you ask? SNOW!!! So, spring is just something that I am daydreaming and crafting about =) 

I used Picnic Marci for my spring card. Nothing says spring like picnics...and flowers. Can't forget the flowers. I used the Rolled Rose Small Medium Die to make the gorgeous roses. I love that die! The flowers are easy to make and take no time at all. 

Picnic Marci is colored with Copic markers. You can find the combos I used below.

Of course I had to use the Stitched Sun and Clouds Set dies for my spring time. This is my favorite sun die of all time! When I saw it, I instantly fell in love. 

Here's a list of all the La-La Land Crafts items used...

Three Christmas Trees Die

Reneabouquets March 2018 Spring Mood Board Facebook Challenge

Good morning! We are already into March...March means spring right? Nope. Not here in Alaska. It means snow. At least this year it does. We had minimal snow all winter, but in the last couple weeks we have gotten about 2 feet of it. I don't mind though, I love the snow. It is so pretty, bright and sometimes, when the sun hits it just right, it sparkles like glitter. 

I am ready for warm weather and pretty flowers, however. Which is the reason for the theme of the Reneabouquets March Spring Mood Board Challenge

For the challenge inspiration, I made a mixed media canvas using aprox. one ton of Reneabouquets items. Seriously though, take a look at the long list at the bottom of this post! 

Here is the Spring Mood Board for the March challenge. 

I was inspired by the flowers and soft colors in the mood board. Which is why I used tons of Reneabouquets Mulberry Paper Flowers.

I have been wanting to do an altered paint brush for the longest time. Not sure why I waited so long to do it, but I sure love how it turned out on this canvas. 

I used many Reneabouquets Beautiful Board pieces, glitter glass, pearls, and butterflies. Every item used from Reneabouquets gives this piece endless charm. 

To make the soft colors, I painted over everything with gesso. I did a couple of layers to achieve the look that I wanted. 

After the gesso had dried I placed the Beautiful Beads Coppered Teal Iridescent Pearls on the canvas. I love these pearls! They are even more gorgeous in person than they are in the picture.

I was able to create lots of yummy textures on my canvas by using stencils, Ranger Tim Holtz Opaque Crackle Texture Paste and sand. I simply mixed sand straight into the Ranger Tim Holtz Opaque Crackle Texture Paste and then used the Ranger Ink Dina Wakley Media Palette Knife Set 
to spread the mixture over the stencil. 

The little dots you see here are made out of hot glue. Genius right?!? Yep, that was my 6 year olds idea. She is an artist herself. I love that she enjoys helping me with my projects. 

Please come and join us in this fun Spring Mood Board challenge! You can find the event HERE in the Reneabouquets Facebook group.  The random winner will receive this prize package...

Vintage La-La Land Crafts Inspiration

Hi crafty friends! It's Friday!!! Are you ready for some crafting? I sure am. 

Let's start the weekend of with some La-La Land Crafts inspiration. The design team is working with the theme vintage. Who doesn't LOVE vintage?!? It's one of my favorite styles of crafting. 

I used the new and super cute Jaunty Luka Rubber Stamp. I had actually colored him a few months back. I love him so much I colored him 4 times in different colors. Lol. 

I used one Jaunty Luka for my vintage box card that went to CHA, one for the Valentines Day box card class that I taught, one for this card and the 4th is still waiting to be put on a project. 

I have to say that Jaunty Luka is looking pretty spiffy in the purple and grey. 

Don't you agree?!? I know that purple really isn't vintage, but I am thinking out of the box here. 

I did however, hook Jaunty Luka up with a Vintage Bike. The Vintage Bike Die is one of the dies that was released in the big CHA release. 

La-La Land Crafts has a lot of super cute vintage dies.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I am off to do some crafting. See you all again real soon!

Happy Birthday Wishes from Rubbernecker Stamps

Need a birthday card? I have a quick one that could be for a boy or a girl. 

I created this card using the Birthday Wishes Circle from Rubbernecker Stamps

I cut the stamp out with a circle die that I got from Rubbernecker Stamps. I am so excited that Rubbernecker Stamps is getting in more shaped dies! I have a bunch on my wish list.

Want to know a little secret? I have heard from a little birdie that they have more dies coming =) I have really gotten into dies. I love the crisp edges. My favorite are the stitched dies. 

I used foam squares to give a little depth to the card between layers. 

You will be able to read more about my card here on the Rubbernecker Stamps blog.
