Strawberries and Cream in La-La Land


This week in La-La La we are using strawberries and cream for our inspiration. I had some gorgeous strawberry digital paper hiding on my computer. I printed out a small version to paper piece her top, and then I used a larger version in the card base and detailing.- sadly they have been retired now though but the joy of digi papers is they are always on hand once you have them.

I also used a colouring combo for her hair that is reminiscent of Strawberry Shortcake dolls.

Aurora Wings Challenge #31



It's time for another Aurora Wings Challenge and this time it's......


No surprises here - I chose to use green, my favourite colour, to mix with the B&W on a cropped version of Anima Sola. I love the intensity the colour adds when paired with B&W and it gives these amazing images a whole new feel. I also loved stepping out of my comfort zone and not colouring in the poppies in red - it is fantasy art after all ;)

For Orlando....


How can anyone NOT be affected by the senseless tragedy that happened in Orlando last week - from all corners of the world we are grieving with the families and friends of the victims.

This gorgeous image was designed by the talented Betty from Simply Betty Stamps and has been offered as a freebie in her Facebook Group to anyone willing to make a card and send it to Orlando. These little gestures of humanity can make a difference.

RIP

For the Men in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are creating something for the men in our lives. Sadly we tend to create more cards for females so it's nice to give the fellas centre stage for a change.

I have a HEAP of demo and construction happening in my neighbourhood so this inspired me to create a backdrop of a building frame going up behind a wire fence. I paired this with Handyman Luka who is all set to get to work. I think it all turned out pretty well and I'm sure the party Luka is planning for will be a LOT quieter than all the noise I have happening around here!

Fancy Edges in La-La Land


This week in La-La Land we are creating with Fancy Edges. I've done a double laced edge around my central panel using the small lacy border die. For the smaller sections I simply chopped out one section from the middle and glued the pieces together overlapping 2 sections. I love being able to change the length of my borders like this - it makes them so much more versatile. You can also extend them in the same way.

Aurora Wings Challenge #29


It's time for another challenge over at Aurora Wings - this time we are doing CAS.


So Ok - I'm not the best at true CAS but I have always believed that challenges are open to some interpretation and here's mine for CAS ;) . I've used the beautiful Spirit of Hibiscus. The main image is popped up off of the background. I can't help myself I like to add height to a card front! I also popped up the large front flower and the one on the side of her head - but at different heights to give some interest. You can do that in CAS right??? I didn't add a lot of embellishments ;)

Don't forget to check out the rest of the AMAZING DT inspiration on our BLOGWe also have a very active Facebook Fan Group with additional contests, challenges and inspiration.  We hope to see you there.
