Hi! If you've been following for any amount of time you know I have a La-La-Land Crafts die obsession! I LOVE them! Want them! NEED them! Lol I use at least one on almost every card I make. I adore their images too, but for some reason they don't seem to make it into my crafting quite as often. But today I have two cards to share with you featuring too cute for words Luka!
My first card was made as a thank you for my friend who converted a salvaged fireplace mantle into a freestanding piece for me. I live in an apartment, but love the cozy ambience a fireplace gives. Since a real one isn't an option, I decided faux was the way to go! As you can see, he rose to the challenge and exceeded all expectations!
I colored Luka with Birdhouse with Copics for his card. I then fussy cut the image and used foam squares for dimension when mounting him on top of the Stitched Squares Stax Die-namics (My Favorite Things). I also used a couple of LLLC dies as well: Tool Border and Tabs Border. To keep with the theme I added a few screw brads and a length of measuring tape ribbon. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.
My next card was made for a coworker and his wife when they welcomed their new baby boy!
Here I also colored with Copics and fussy cut. This time I utilized quite a few La-La-Land Crafts dies. I included Filigree Border, Filigree Moon, Filigree Stars, Baby Clothesline, Open Leaf Flourish, and Rocking Horse. The Star Cluster border is from Tim Holtz (Sizzix) and the banner for the sentiment is cut with Fishtail Flags Stax Die-namics (My Favorite Things). I just added a few flowers for the finishing touch.
I really need to color up these cuties more often!
