LLWWC49 - Shaker Cards

Welcome back to another LaLa Weekly Wednesday Challenge . This week's hostess is sweet Maureen who is challenging us to make Shaker Cards and we'd love to have you come play along!!  There's a great tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers by Beate and you can use anything small to fill your shaker; glitter, micro beads, mini buttons, confetti, etc. I used brown glitter for the sunflower and popped up Sunflower Rosie ... isn't she cute? Her braids remind me of Pippi Longstocking... love that movie. Here's a pic of the card standing up with the glitter shaken =)   My inspiration for my card came from our garden... my girls planted red sunflowers this year and Carly took this one of hers.  

LLWWC48 - Upcycle It

Welcome to another fun challenge in LaLa Land!! Cheryl is our lovely hostess this week and wants to see us use something that we would have thrown away.... "Upcycle It!"  I used a soda pop can... rinsed, cut and dried... layed flat and ran through my cuttlebug to help flatten it out, and then put my bathtub "template" over top and cut it out. Now LaLa can relax in her posh stainless steel tub! *Ü* I also used liquid applique and heat set it for the foamy bubbles, but that's not my "recycled" part as i would never throw out a perfectly good tube of L.A.! lol!  Come on over and join the challenge this week ... lots of great inspiration from the Design Team! Remember, you need to use a stamp or digi from LLLC to qualify for the Top 3 boinky or to win the $10 Gift Certificate!

Cock-a-Doodle-Doo... It's Tea Time!

Hello...  today's project is a  Teapot Giftbox ! I bought the template for this from Lauren Meeder's website, My Time Made Easy .   I had my mother in mind as her birthday is tomorrow, and she just recently re-decorated her kitchen in crisp white and black with red accents, so I just had to make a teapot to match! I used the :Rise and Shine" clear art stamp set from Layers of Color . Aren't these li'l animals so cute?! I love this set from Layers of Color.  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you are inspired to 'Ink Something' :)

Limited Runs - Sunny Cupcake

Happy Monday!!    I don't know why, but I've been on this "Yellow card" kick lately. This is my 3rd yellow card that I've made in the last week!  The image is one of 5 digis that I won from Limited Runs. Thanks for dropping by!! What will you INK?!

LLWWC46 - Step It Up!

Happy Wednesday!! It's another fun challenge in LaLa Land today and I get to be this week's hostess! *Ü* Since I'm on a "step card" kick lately, I'd like you all to use your stamps or digis from LaLa Land Crafts and make your choice of a STAIR STEP card, SIDE STEP card, or a DOUBLE SIDE STEP card!! I've linked you to some easy tutorials over on the LaLa Land Crafts Blog to help you out. But they are really easier than they look, so don't be shy!! *Ü*  I made my card a SIDE STEP card. These are fun to embellish with your border punches, Nesties, or to create a scene! The LaLa Design Team has created some REALLY FANTASTIC cards, so be sure to hop on over and check them out !!
