Edwin With Stolen Heart

I really enjoy making card for boy and this is one of the stamps that I always wanted to have in my (not so small) collection, but I just recently bought it. Image is called Edwin With Stolen Heart and it was released as part of Sweet Crazy Love collection, 2012. I coloured the image using Distress ink pads on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper.


Papers used are from Maja Design - Nyhavn collection. In my opinion this release has the most beautiful greys - loveeeeee them ....
Die cuts added were made with Magnolia, la-la land crafts, C.C. Designs and other dies (other = too lazy to get up and go check the brand).

I coloured Edwin using Distress ink pads on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper. Design papers are from Maja Design - Denim & Friends. You can get them HERE - they are still 50 % off.

June 2018 club kit ❤ la-la land crafts

 

Today I'm sharing with you my cards made with June 2018 la-la land crafts club kit. You can get your monthly club kit too if you subscribe to la-la land club HERE

I think this is my favourite club kit this year. I loved doing my projects with it. My first project is an exploding box. I haven't done any in a while and these new sewing feries are perfect size for these kind of boxes.
I kept the outside rather simple. I added a bow, a few circles (for a name or something), dress forms and dresses and Pin Cushion die cut.


I cut 4 sewing machines and cut off the lover part and glued them arround the lid (the white part with the hearts).


To decorate the inside I coloured all three sewing feries and fussy cut them. Images were coloured using Distress ink pads.



I cut out 3 Sewing machines and glued them together to get a chipboard look-a-like.


Sentiment "A friend like you is always in style" comes with In style Marci rubber stamp.


I used a few la-la land crafts dies from regular range on this project:



My second project is a card. I used In Style Marci and a sentiment from Sew Amazing set. Image was coloured using Distress ink pads.


I added some glossy accent to the glasses to make it look real.


That's all from me today!

April club kit ❤ la-la land crafts


Yes, you read it right! I'm showing you cards made with April's kit. hehe ... This kit came to me a bit late and then I was at work all the time ... so now I finally got the chance to play with it.
You can get your monthly club kit too if you subscribe to la-la land club HERE!

My first card features Tropical Marci, Hibiscus flower stamp and Honu die. I coloured Marci using Distress ink pads and then fussy cut her. I coloured my purple background using Seedles preserves distress oxide ink. Then I stamped my Hibiscus flowers and heat embossed them with white embossing powder.



I made the white background with a lot of white Honu die cuts. I glued them randomly to the white base and then simply cut the excess off. I absolutely love the effect.


 On my second card I used one of the adorable Hippos. I coloured it using Distress ink pads. For the background I used Hibiscus dies. Sentiment is also from the same set.
