~ La-La Land Craft's Tutorial Thursday - Fox Den ~



Hi La-La Land Craft Fans!

I am not a story teller by nature, however, I have found I love to tell a story through my card designs.  This adorable little momma fox from the Spring Woodland Critters Clear Stamp Set  is guarding her den full of pups.  Her cozy little woodland den even has a chimney.  I hope you enjoy my tutorial!

~ What Comes in This Kit ~



This little piggie went to the doctor...Doctor Marci that is.  He is a very sick piggie...luckily he has a nice comfy bed to recoup in.  I created the pattern on his comforter using the background stamp from the Just For You Stamp Set.  To create the  woodgrain in the bed frame and the wood floor, I used the background stamp from the Wood Planks Stamp Set and for the wallpaper and rug, I used the background stamp from the Hello Lovely Stamp Set.  I just cut a white strip of cardstock to create the baseboard.  The square scalloped frame is actually the largest die from the Scalloped Rectangles Die Set that I cut in half and shrunk down.  To cover up the cut marks, I used the heart die cuts from the label of the Pill Bottle Die from the kit.



I absolutely love being able to utilize all my fun crafty supplies in new and creative ways.  This little bedroom scene was so much fun to create!

For my second project, it's Doctor Marci to the rescue!  Even tho Marci is working hard helping people feel better she still looks like a fashionista from her headband down to her flats.  You can always count on Marci to look her best!  I created the pattern on her outfit using a Copic Multiliner.



Who wouldn't love receiving a shaker card to lift their spirits?!  I used the Scalloped Heart Die to create this shaker and added a Heart Beat die cut on top.  The shaker is full of fun bits... heart shaped rhinestones, snowballs and sequins.


To create a wood plank wall, I added score lines using my scoring tool.

~ Whimsy Stamps - Imagine ~

Welcome!  Today I am sharing with you a whimsical little scene I created using one of the adorable penguins from the Penguin Slides Stamp Set from Whimsy Stamps.  This little penguin is having an awesome day lounging on a floating iceberg counting up how many cloud animals he can find.



To make the cloud background, I used a cloud die-cut using one of the cloud borders from the Grass and Cloud Edger Die Set, Tumbled Glass Ink Pad and a craft sponge.

You are only limited by your imagination!

~ Whimsy Stamps - Panda Ninja ~

Do you ever dream up a card design and think that's a great idea only to forget what it was before you could create it? This happens to me all the time.  So, when I dreamt up a super fun idea for a Panda Ninja card using Whimsy Stamp's Panda Butt Clear Stamp Set, I jumped out of bed to jot down the idea before I could forget it.  



Aren't these pandas just as cute as they can be?!  I cannot believe how this card turned out just the way I imagined it!  This is truly a proud momma moment for me!!!  



Now you can see why I am a stamper and not an illustrator...lol

~ La-La Land Crafts - Tropical Paradise ~


Happy Friday Everyone!

Today's Team Friday challenge is Tropical Paradise.  The sun, sea, flamingos are just a few of the things I think of when I envision a tropical paradise.  Flamingos are beautiful, elegant and their babies are delightfully adorable!



The Flamingo 1 Die was incredibly fun to color.  Once I colored the beak, I couldn't believe how realistic they turned out.  These cuties make me so happy!

After I colored the waves, I used blender solution and an old piece of terry cloth to give the waves that white foamy look that you see on the crest of ocean waves.
