La-La Land Crafts - Inspiration Monday


I hope your week is off to a great start! Mother's Day is just around the corner and the La-La Land Crafts design team has made a few cards for that occasion to share with you. 

My card features a cute gnome from the "Hey Gnomie Clear Stamp Set".

I also used a few new floral dies, to add around the gnome. You will be able to find the links to the products (if you need to have a look at anything) further in this post.

The gnome is colored with Copics:
Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000 + R20
Beard: W5, W3, W1
Outfit: V09, V06, V05, V04, V01

Daisy: RV29, RV25, RV23
           E59, E39, E37, E35
           G99, YG95

Here is the list of the items I used on my card:

Happy coming Mother's Day to all the mothers who love us despite anything, who are always by our sides, supporting, caring and guiding, never asking anything in return, always proud of any of our achievements and always pushing us forward to new successes. We love you so much and wanna be just like you when we grow up :)

Thanks everybody for stopping by!

Sealing Wax Meets UV Resin - Tutorial + Freebie

Hello everyone!

While working on the specimen tags for my next nature themed journal, I decided to make wax charms and thought about a way of making them look a bit more interesting. I also had a UV Resin in my stash that I wanted to use along with the wax, so this seemed to be a great chance of trying something new. 
Here are the tags that I finally came up with:

I relly liked the bass dowel seals for creating the charms. They were perfect for this purpose. I got mine from Craspire:

The charms turned out awesome, with the UV Resin dome on top of them they look like cabochons. 

I filmed a video tutorial in which I share my creative process. I hope you find it helpful and inspiring :)
If you cannot play the video, please copy and paste the direct link into your browser -

For those who want to use some of the images and elements that I used on my tags, I have a freebie below. Open the image in a new tab and click "Save As..."

I printed this sheet one time on cardstock and the second time on transparent sticker paper, so that I could use the butterflies and the bugs on top of the acetate in the tag window. 

Let me know what you think of this idea. Have fun creating!

April 2022 Release from La-La Land Crafts - Day 5

Hello and happy Tuesday to all!

I love spring!! It is my favorite time of the year! Isn't it nice to feel even more inpired not only by the beautiful nature outside, but also by the wonderful products from the new release by La-La Land Crafts!?

Here is my card for the DAY 5 of the showcase:

The 'In Bloom' stamp set can be used on any card! Coloring foral doodles is fun and relaxing. You can even use just plain markers or pencils for coloring the images in, in any case they will look great.

The focal point of my card are the shaker vase and the butterfly. For the first time I have created a see through shaker element and I like it a lot. I didn't want to cover any parts of the colored floral clusters, so using acetate for the back layer of the shaker seemed perfect. 

I also used the 'clearest' type of sequins that I had :) I like that they have a flat back and don't have a hole in the middle.

Be sure to check the carious butterfly dies from April Release, they are gorgeous!!
