~ Sweet Christmas Wishes ~

Hi Everyone,

As you know, I love to make shaker cards and I just couldn't help myself making one with this adorable gingerbread girl from Whimsy Stamp'sGingerbread Love Rubber Stamp Set.  To make the shaker, I used Whimsy's "Peekaboo Windows 2 Die" and put dimensional foam tape around each square to create separate shaker windows and filled each window with different colored sequins, Diamond Dust, mini cookie cutters, mini jingle bells, and Shaker Fun Snowballs.  I also put the gingerbread girl on top of a Mini Wobble Spring so when you shake the card the gingerbread girl wiggles, too.  All these elements make such a fun interactive card!

Today's La-La Land Craft's Inspiration Friday Challenge is to use a background stamp.  I decided to use two.  The dot background stamp that comes in the Hello Lovely Background Set is definitely a lovely background stamp.  I stamped it using Lemonade Distress Ink to make the background paper and for the Ship's Wheel Die and the ferris wheel from the London Border Die.  It is the perfect subtle summer color to go along with an ocean theme.  I stamped the background stamp called "Wood Planks" in Walnut Stain Distress Ink and used the Lattice Bracket Die for a pier shape.  I also stamped a second piece of cardstock using the "Wood Planks" background stamp.  Since Distress Ink works well with Copics I was able to color over the woodgrain pattern.  After coloring these pieces, I attached the Lattice Bracket Die piece over the second stamped piece of woodgrain cardstock and trimmed it to match.  I really love how the pier turned out!  Now "At The Beach Molli" has the perfect place to sit and enjoy the view and sip her lemonade in her super duper cute watermelon bikini.


  To make the ferris wheel look like it was all lit up I added rhinestones and I added Nuvo Gloss White Crystal Drops to the waves to make them look like they had white caps.  This card was so much fun to create!

~ Magical Winter Wishes ~


Hi All,

I'm here today sharing one of Whimsy Stamp's new releases called "Favorite Flake".  It is such a cute set and I couldn't resist making a card using this darling Unicorn trying to catch snowflakes on its tongue.  In a magical world, Unicorns come in all kinds of colors so I decided to use lovely shades of lavender or in Copic terms, blue-violets.


I used Whimsy's Snow Dangle Stencil and Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste. I also spread the paste over the cloud die cut.  Look at all that shimmery goodness!  This paste is so easy to use and dries super duper fast.  It's translucent so you can achieve different effects by using it by itself, like I did with the stencil and over the cloud die cut or putting it over color, like I did on the Unicorn's horn.  You can also add a few drops of your Copic Various Ink Refill to match any project you are working on.  How cool is that?!


Look how sparkly the Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste looks on the unicorn's horn.  Also, his teeny tiny tongue just cracks me up!

~ A Heartfelt Thank You ~


Happy Friday,

Today's theme for La-La Land's Inspiration Friday is to make a thank you card.  Isn't Paper Doll Winter Marci absolutely darling?!  I just love her eyelashes!!!  She is all snuggly warm in her fuzzy hat, sweater and mittens which I created using my Various Ink Colorless Blender and a piece of terry cloth.


I created her stockings with my .05 Multi-liner.  Marci is after all a fashionable paper doll!

~ Wishing You Peace, Love & Joy ~


This is my last card in my monochromatic with a pop of color series.  I used DoveArt's "Pine Bough" from Whimsy Stamps.  I stamped the Pine Bough three times cutting out two of the pinecones and popping them up on top of the frames.  I also made a tunnel type card by layering the Basic Stitched Oval Dies from the smallest to the biggest to really give the card depth.


Always remember...you do not have to use traditional colors to make a statement...think outside the box and color the way that makes YOU happy!!!

~ My Heart Belongs to You ~


Today's La-La Land Craft's Inspiration Friday theme is to make an interactive card and I just can't resist making a shaker card. They are super fun to make and your friends and family love receiving them!


La-La Land's Postage Stamp Dies really make it easy to send a message of love.  I also used the Ric Rac Die to make it look like a postage cancellation stamp.  I paper-pieced her outfit with tiny dot paper and added a heart to her cheek using Copic R21 and white dots to her other cheek using a white Gelly Roll Pen.  I wanted the heart she is making with her hands to have dimension so I added some shimmer with Spectrum Noir's Sparkle Brush Pen and Tonic Nuvo's Crystal Glaze.
