La La Land Crafts Christmas

Are you ready for today's challenge over at La La Land Crafts?  The challenge is Christmas!  You can make a Christmas card and enter it into the challenge for a chance to win a prize!  

My card today was totally fun to make!  Most of La La Land Crafts stamps come in the form of rubber stamps but I didn't have anything Christmas that I hadn't used yet so Irina being the sweet person that she is sent me this Down the Slopes Rosie to play with.  

I colored Rosie with Copic markers and cut her out with an old Sizzix tag die.  It looked really WHITE so I was going to soften the edges with some Tim Holtz distress inks and the rest is history.  Distress inks are too fun NOT to spritz with a bottle of water so I did, then I just started playing in it.  Rosie looks like she went out sledding, the weather warmed up, the snow started to melt and it got a little muddy... 

The patterned papers are a what's left of a Stampin' Up! package I had, I cut a square and then two triangles from it and rolled the edges to make them a little distressed too.  I added "enchanced" rhinestones to the snowflakes I punched.  By enhanced I mean I colored them with a Copic marker and the "Tis The Season" stamp is by Papertrey Ink from the set Signature Christmas.

We have a NEW CHARACTER to share with you today!! Irina has been working hard (and enjoying every minute of it I'm sure) on her fabulous new line of stamps and she's decided to share a new stamp each week and have it available for one week only in the shop as a digi!! So far we've seen "Birthday Marci" and "Ballerina Marci" and you can see cards made with them by visiting Irina's blog HERE.

Introducing Pirate Luka!
He's available this week only, you can find him HERE

Just a reminder that "Marci Ballerina" stamp is still available as a digi, but not much longer.. Only a few days left before she leaves for awhile only to be back in rubber in our first release on September 15th!! Click HERE to purchase this digi stamp :-)

And, in case you didn't know, all our digis come in sets of 2... one fully colored for your color reference and the other in digi for YOU to color.

There's so much happening at La La Land Crafts with the birthday celebration we just had and upcoming new releases!  I can't wait to color Marci & Luka and make some cards, maybe this week?!
