Make It Crafty Inspiration Design: Time to Celebrate

Hi again!  Popping onto the blog this evening to share another design team project- this time for Make It Crafty!  I colored up Zoe Party Girl for today's card.  She was so much fun and I enjoyed working with pink and orange together!

This little big-eyed anime cutie is named after our fearless leader and she is ready to party!  I colored her with Copics and then trimmed my image panel into a square before matting it.  I thought some angles would add nice visual interest so I turned the two layers in opposite directions slightly.  Of course I added my usual plethora of La-La Land Crafts dies as well as a sentiment created from MIC chipboard.  The dies featured here are Presents Border, Open Hearts Doily Border, Lattice Border, Filigree Candle, Filigree Bow, and Dress.

Make It Crafty April Coloring Challenge: Dew Drops

Hello!  I am here to share my Make It Crafty design team inspiration for this month's coloring challenge!  Zoe likes to really push us out of our comfort zones and encourage us to try new things.  Well, this month she absolutely succeed in giving me crafty anxiety!  Dew drops are the theme!  I have never before attempted this technique so what you're seeing is my first attempt.  Ok, well, not VERY first.  Two previous attempts with two different images ended up in the bin.  But I persevered and I am glad I did.  Don't give up!  Once you get a few under your belt, it really is an easy technique and adds a lovely detail to your image.

I ended up coloring this Peonies digital image.  I don't often color flowers so this project is a departure from my norm in several ways.  My coloring was done with Copics.  I followed some tutorials on how to create the dew drops.  (Zoe has included a couple on the challenge post to help you.)  I decided to make a Thank You card so colored up a Thanks single layered chipboard word sentiment.  I added a few La-La Land Crafts dies to my card as well.  Here I've used Scallop Border, Small Scallops Border, Lattice Doily Border, Heart Fan, Open Leaf Flourish, and Peacock Feather.






Hope you liked my crafty inspiration!  Join us over at the challenge for your chance to win one of three $5 gift vouchers for the MIC shop!  To be eligible you must use at least ONE Make It Crafty product on your project and follow the challenge theme.  All coloring mediums are welcome and your entry does not have to be a finished project.  Enter our Dew Drops coloring challenge HERE.

A La-La Land Crafts Easter

Hi there!  We celebrated Easter over the weekend and I have a few cards that I made for the occasion.  I used La-La Land Crafts products almost exclusively!  Because...  have you heard the news?  I am now a member of the Club La-La Land Crafts Design Team!!!!  This is a definite dream come true and a bucket list item for me!  They had a design team call, and I took a chance and entered!  The feeling when I got the news was one of pure joy!  LLLC is one of my absolute favorite companies!   I will be on the Club team, which means every month I will create projects using the exclusive stamps and dies that are released in the monthly Club Kit.  If you aren't familiar with the Club Kit, HERE is the link so you can check it out!  I've been a member since September 2015 and it was one of the best crafty decisions I've made!


I have four Easter cards to share with you today!  Up first is Easter Bunny Luka!  He is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up with foam squares.  This is the only card where I used a die other than LLLC.  The Stitched Bunny Peep is from Kat Scrappiness.  All the other dies, unless retired, can be found HERE.  This cutie was my son's Easter card!

Make It Crafty Inspiration Design: Treasured Friend

Hi!  I'm popping in with a quick share of my latest design inspiration for Make It Crafty!  I have been hit with yet another head cold this week which has thrown a bit of a wrench in my schedule.  After an epic night, which involved twelve hours of sleep and countless tissues, I feel ready to face the world.  From my bed.  In my pajamas.  From behind the computer screen.  But ready nevertheless!

For today's project I used the lovely Krista Smith image, Mermaid Sparkles.  I gave her purple hair because she is that cool!  Coloring was done with Copics. I added a MIC Friend single layered chipboard word and some chippie Tinklings Stars (also colored with Copics) plus a generous supply of La-La Land Crafts dies as well. The dies I used were: Lattice Doily Border, Lattice Border, Star Border, Seaweed Border, Wave Border, Stitched Elements, Sea Critters (Club Kit August 2017), Under the Sea, and Seaweed.

Hello!  Anyone who knows me knows Halloween is my favorite holiday!  It may only be March on the calendar, but it is never too early to be thinking about October!  Every year I say I am going to start my Halloween (and Christmas) cards early and then every year I still find myself scrambling last minute!  Well, not this year!  Here is my first Halloween card for 2018 featuring Mini Dracula from Make It Crafty!  He is colored with Copics, fussy cut, and popped up with foam squares.  I also used a MIC chippie which reads "fangtastic".





Dies are all from La-La Land Crafts except for the Weathered Clock Bigz die and Drip Edge Thinlits by Tim Holtz (Sizzix).  The LLLC ones are Ornate Border Large, Tombstones, Frightful Fence, Eerie Bats, and Spider Web Border.  The blood spatter was made with a Martha Stewart punch.
