~ Joy to the World ~


Today's La-La Land Craft's Inspiration Friday challenge is to use non-traditional Christmas colors.  I love Navy and white for Christmas colors so I decided to do a soft blue, white and peachy rose combo...I really love how these colors look together!


The Pinecone Bough Die has proven to be one of my favs out of this release!  I love how the Nuvo "Moonstone" Glimmer Paste looks covered over all the branches and pinecones.  The Winter Mug Die is absolutely adorable and fun to color.  I decided to add Nuvo "Gloss White" Crystal Drops to make it look like whipped cream on top of the hot cocoa and sprinkled a little iridescent glitter on top for some extra sparkle.

~ Peace on Earth ~

Hi All,

Today I am sharing with you my third card using La-La Land Craft's new winter release.  Marci loves looking fashionable and she is all decked out in her new leopard print assemble.  Doesn't she look like she should be on the cover of Vogue?!

~ Deck the Palms ~


I'm back today with my second project for La-La Land Craft's new winter release.  Santa definitely needs a vacation after delivering all those presents around the world before he heads back to the North Pole for a long winter's nap!


I stamped the palm tree from the "Deck the Palms" Clear Stamp Set twice and popped up the second set of leaves to give the tree some added dimension.  I love how the stencil from the "It's Snowing" Layering Stencil Set looks like sun rays when used with different colors of yellow Distress Ink.
I added Nuvo Crystal Glaze to the Christmas bulbs and the icing of the donut floaty to give them a more realistic look.

~ Hello Winter ~


It's time for La-La Land Craft's new winter release and for my first card I am showcasing the uber adorable moose from the "Cozy Christmas" Clear Stamp Set.  He is dressed up in his winter's finest and is warming up with a delicious cup of hot cocoa after chopping down his Christmas tree. 


 I created the background by sponging Tumbled Glass Distress Ink over  the Large Stitched Tag and then spreading Nuvo "Moonstone" Glimmer Paste through the new snowflake stencil from the "It's Snowing" Layering Stencil Set.

La-La Land's new Pinecone Bough Die is incredibly beautiful and adds such a lovely touch to the top of their new Large Stitched Tag Die


As you can see, this card is full of dimension and it took four layers of foam tape for me to add stability to his antlers.  I love making cards with lots of layers and depth.

~ This Moose be Love ~


Hi Everyone,

My brother asked me to make a card for his bride for their 15th wedding anniversary.  He told me something cute and fun and this is what I came up with.  What could be cuter than a shaker card and a moose in love?!  


 I put the shaker inside of another frame and popped the moose on top.  I cut up the sides of his legs and made it look like he was sitting amongst the grass.  You can see the dimension in the picture below.


The inside says "This Moose be Love"

~ Jingle all the Wave ~


Jingle wave, jingle wave, jingle all the wave....sounds like a good place to spend Christmas to me!  There's nothing like feeling the ocean breeze on your face and seeing nothing but ocean for miles to ponder, pray, dream, refresh and renew your heart and soul!!!


I love making cards with lots of dimension.  You can see the Rudolph Seahorse is on top of a Mini Action Wobble Spring (see pic below) so when you shake the card he wobbles, too.....so cute and fun!!!

~ Candy Cane Forest ~





This sweet little polar bear from La-La Land Crafts is having fun making sugarballs in a candy cane forest in the land of Sugarland.  Didn't you know the North Pole was located in Sugarland and not in the middle of the Artic Ocean?!!!  I love how this scene turned out looking so sweet and delicious!


I created this scene by covering all the die cuts in Nuvo "Moonstone" Glimmer Paste.  Look at all that glimmering shimmering goodness!  This paste dries so fast and is beyond easy to use.  I think I need to buy a case of it!  


I love all the dimension this card has!
