~ La-La Land Craft's - Keep Your Head High ~



Happy Friday My Crafty Peeps!

Today's Inspiration Friday Challenge is to create a 3-D project.  I have chosen to make an easel card for my crafty make.



I thought it would be fun to have this adorable giraffe peeking up amongst the clouds.  I just bought this Stitched Clouds Die Set and I totally love these dies!  They both have unique puffy cloud scallops and work so well together.  You can never have too many choices in cloud dies!  I can tell I will be using this die set a lot on future projects.



I stamped the heart background stamp from the Hearts Forever Background Stamp Set in Memento Summer Sky Ink to represent the sky.  I chose the heart background as a subliminal message of love being sent along with the supportive message.  We all not only need to receive encouragement from time to time but we also need to give it.  What better way to do that than with a cute card...and who doesn't love a cutie patootie giraffe?!



Seriously, who could resist smiling and being encouraged by this doe eyed cutie?!!!

~ Whimsy Stamps - Always Remember ~


Hello Whimsy Fans!

Today I am sharing with you a tutorial on how I made this flag shaker card honoring our military.  It is so important to remember where our freedom comes from and the sacrifices not only they but their families have given for us to be free.  I, myself, have experienced and seen the sacrifices having had a father serving in the Air Force and being a child during the Vietnam War.  We also need to remember that many sacrifices are suffered years after serving not only in their health but in their memories.  May we never take for granted the freedom we have at the sacrifice of others!



~ Step by Step Tutorial ~



Step 1.  Cut white cardstock at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4" to create a card base.

Step 2.  Die cut a piece of white linen cardstock using the largest Hand Stitched Nested Rectangles Die.  Adhere to card base.

Step 3.  Cut a piece of blue cardstock at 5" x 3 3/4".

Step 4.  Cut a piece of white cardstock at 4 3/4" x 3 5/8".

Step 5.  Cut (4) pieces of red cardstock strips and (3) pieces of white linen cardstock  strips at 5 1/8" x 1/2".

Step 6.  Using the straight stitched border die from the Stitched Border Die Trio Set, add stitching to the red and white strips of cardstock.  This die doesn't cut, it only adds stitching.



Step 7.  Adhere strips to white cardstock in Step 4.  Trim edges of strips to fit white cardstock.  Adhere to blue cardstock from Step 3.  Adhere to card using foam tape.



Step 8.  Die cut (2) large dog tags from the Military Die Set out of blue cardstock.

Step 9.  Die cut a medium sized dog tag out of (1) large dog tag.  This will create the shaker opening.



Step 10.  Turn dog tag over and adhere a 1 1/4" x 2" piece of acetate.



Step 11.  Adhere foam tape on top of acetate.



Step 12.  Add shaker bits.  I added tiny stars.



Step 13.  Adhere remaining large dog tag die cut to create shaker.



Step 14.  Add a star die cut from white linen cardstock using the star die from the Military Die Set.  Add chain, if desired.  Adhere to card using foam tape...this will allow room for the chain.



Step 15.  Die cut the military service personnel from the Military Die Set out of black cardstock.  Adhere to card using foam tape.

Step 16.  Stamp sentiment.  I used "Always Remember" from the Military Heroes Clear Stamp Set.  Trim 1/8" away from sentiment.  Adhere to blue piece of cardstock.  Adhere to card using foam tape.

~ 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.
