Umbrella Shaker Card

Hello - I hope you're having a good weekend so far!  I had some crafty time to make an extra card with some of the new products from the April Release at  La-La Land Crafts that I haven't used yet!  I made this umbrella shaker card featuring the Showers of Joy clear stamp set , the Umbrella Die , and the Rain and Shine stencil.   The grass and clouds are actually part of the Forest Die - all in one!  How cool is that?!   I was really tempted to also make this Forest Die into a 3D card, but I figured the shaker was the wow factor on this one, so I glued my layers of the Forest Die together. ☺  For the back layer of the umbrella, I stenciled some flowers from the Floral Beauty Stencil Set.   and here is the inside.  The hippo is also from the Showers of Joy clear stamp set.   And the sun up there is covering up an OOPSIE ink splotch.  PRODUCTS : Showers of Joy Clear Stamp Set Forest Die Spring Blossoms Small Die Stitched Ribbons Die Stitched Sun and Clouds Die Rain and Shine S

Side Easel Lilies

Friday is here again and that means it's time for Team Friday to share some inspiration at  La-La Land Crafts!  Easel cards have been around for many years, but this one is slightly different and new to me - but super easy to make!  I like the floating focal image on the front - similar to the floating elements on the multi-cube cards I've made.  And isn't Marci with Lilies ADORABLE?!   The next photo shows how the front fits behind the popped up part with the lilies, just like an easel. For the vase, I die-cut the larger vase out of acetate for a shiny glass look on the outside, then I cut the smaller vase out of vellum and colored it with green Copic marker.  So you can see the patterned paper and the flower stems through the "glass" vase. Here is the front as you pull it out of the envelope. The one I saw was a 5"x 7" card, however, since I'm using 6"x 6" paper, I made mine 5" x 6-1/2" and can be put in a 5x7 envelope. The foc

Club LLLC April Kit

Time to reveal the April Club Kit at La-La Land Crafts!  "It's All Greek to Me!"   This kit is a bit different, but is so pretty with all the gold accents you can incorporate!  It comes with Greek Goddess Marci Rubber Stamp ...   I Myth You Rubber Stamp Set (set of 3)... and 3 Dies/sets:  Greek Oval Frame Die ...  Greek Column Die ... and Olive Branch Die . Once again, I created 2 cards with this kit to showcase all the stamps and dies.  My first card is a Shaker Easel Card , and I paired this kit with the Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack ( not part of kit)  which is PERFECT because it has a lot of gold in it!  I made this into an easel at the last moment because I really didn't want to cover up anything on the front.  ;)  PRODUCTS USED: April CLUB LLLC Kit Sparkle & Shine Paper Pack Scalloped Rectangles Die Double Stitched Rectangles Die Horizontal Pocket Die COPIC COLORS: Skin: E00, 000, 21, 13 Cheeks: R21, 20, 00 Hair: E51, 53, 31 Dress/gold: Y21, 23 Scarf: BG1
