Queen of Hearts in La-La Land

The project I’m sharing today is my final creation as a guest with La-La Land Crafts. I’d like to say a huge thank you to Irina and the rest of the LLLC team for letting me join them, and for their patience with me over the past few months.  I’ve had great fun playing with the products.

This week’s Inspiration Friday theme was a sketch, which I have loosely followed in creating another fun box with the book box chipboard kit.

Stamp: Queen of Hearts Marci
3D Kit: Book Trinket Box Kit

I altered some Graphic 45 paper with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals and Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabber, to achieve a more vibrant look than the papers originally had so that they would work better with Marci’s bold look.  Marci was of course, stamped on my favourite Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with Copic markers.

Copics: Skin – E000, E00, E21, E04, R20, BV11 Hair: E13, E17, E19 Outfit: R24, R46, R59, BV02, BV04, BV08, Y35, YR23, Y28, W5, W7, W9

That’s all for now.  I’ll be back later with another fun post. In the meantime, make sure you pop on over to the LLLC Blog to check out the rest of the makes from the team today!

La-La Land Meets Wonderland for Inspiration Friday

Happy Friday! I’ve got another sweet La-La Land Crafts creation to share with you today.  This week’s Inspiration Friday theme is “All Stitched Up”.  Pop on over to the LLLC Blog to check out the rest of the makes from the team.

I kept the decoration of the book trinket box fairly simple, so it didn’t compete with bold little Marci in Wonderland. I covered the box and banner embellishment in gold paint, and the little frame Marci is peeking out of, I covered in Graphic45 paper. My faux stitching was added with a white gel pen, and I distressed the edges of the paper with a Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabber.

I stamped Marci on my favourite Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with Copic markers.

I used Steampunk Cycle Marci together with the Heart Ribbon Corner and Scalloped Banner dies. I embellished the banner with some of the little hearts which came out of the corner die cut.

I used the adorable Heart Cupcake Marci together with the Sweetheart Shadow Box kit, which I painted with Paper Artsy Fresco paint and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals before assembling. Inside the box I used some designer paper from my stash and one of the new dies – the Filigree Crown die made for some fun stylised grass, with a few gems added to suggest flower buds. 😉

La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday – Mask or Merge!

I’m having some fun guest designing for La-La Land Crafts at the moment, so today I have another card to share for Inspiration Friday.  The theme this week is “Mask/Merge”, so make sure you drop by the La-La Land Crafts Blog to see more fun makes from the other girls!

My card features the adorable Darling Dragon Luka together with Bat Girl Marci, both from the recent Halloween release.  The sentiment comes with Luka.

I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with a combination of Copics and ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (available in the UK from Jackson’s Art Supplies).

I framed my little scene using one of the frames from the Halloween Shapes & Frames kit, which I painted with Luminarte Silks in Boysenberry.  I also painted the border of my card front with this to match. I mounted the framed image on a piece of Coredinations cardstock, altered using a die-cut from the Spiderweb Corner Die, which I used as a mask with some white pigment ink.

La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday: Winter

I’m having some fun guest designing for La-La Land Crafts at the moment, so today I’m here to share a card for Inspiration Friday.  The theme this week is “Winter”, so make sure you drop by the La-La Land Crafts Blog to see the other winter makes from the other girls!

My card today features the adorable Snowflake Garland Marci. As you may have noticed, I love vibrant colours, and over the past few months I’ve been a little purple obsessed, so I embraced that here. 😉

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (available in the UK from Jackson’s Art Supplies).

ShinHan Touch Twin Markers: 
Skin: YR132, YR133, BR107, BR103, R28, R140
Hair: BR104, BR100, BR102,
Outfit: PB77, PB75, P281, Y36, YR33, YR31, B178, B68
Background/Ground/Shading: WG0.5, WG1, WG3, WG6

The designer paper was a random sheet from my stash.  I have a feeling it was from a Cosmo Cricket pad.  I went to town on the edges with some Ranger Acrylic Paint Dabbers in purple and white.  The snowflakes are Make it Crafty Chipboard.

That’s it for now!  Happy Friday!

La La Land Crafts Halloween Showcase: Cauldron Witch Marci

Phew.  I fully intended to be back and blogging before now, but time has not been on my side!  I have been working away on lots of colouring, but card-making and blogging proved to be too much of a stretch.  Lots of boring “real life” stuff being sorted out at the moment, on top of the day to day things, so something just has to give.  Plus, I’ve been working on redesigning the blog as you can probably see, and haven’t quite finished that yet either.

Anyway, I can share something a little fun today! I’m thrilled to join the La-La Land Crafts team today as a guest to help show off the new Halloween release (if you’re a regular here, you may know that I am a sucker for Halloween).  So, enough waffling from me, here are all the details and my project!

In this new release we have FOUR new stamps, THREE new dies and ONE new Frames & Shapes Kit.
The new stamps include:
For the DIES we have:
Last, but not least, we have an awesome Halloween Frames & Shapes Kit!

Now for my project!  I used the adorable CAULDRON WITCH MARCI along with the HALLOWEEN FRAMES & SHAPES KIT and the PUMPKINS and SPIDER WEB CORNER dies.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (available in the UK from Jackson’s Art Supplies).  I created the background using Tim Holtz Distress Inks on pearlescent card, which I sprinkled with water.  The pumpkins were cut from the MiC card using the Pumpkins die and then coloured with markers.  The chipboard frame was painted using Luminarte Silks in “Boysenberry”, the bat details were then painted using Gel Medium mixed with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals in Screamin’ Banshee Black, to give the slightly textured leathery look along with some shimmer.
