La La Land Crafts - Have You Heard? (Club La La Land)

Image
At the beginning of last year I said I wouldn't start another card kit or stamp subscription...but...towards the end of last year I came across a super cute club that I wanted to be apart of! La La Land Crafts has a fun monthly kit which comes with red rubber stamps and dies and today I'm sharing a few cards I created with my first kit (December).    Each card features the cute Panda Bear stamp/s and also includes the dies available in the subscription kit. I basically added card stock and a few embellishments to finish off each card. I decided I wanted to go really bright and colourful - a nice contrast to black and white bears.  My second card uses the negatives left over from the first card (I love it when I don't waste paper!). I of course added some stitching and coloured the bears in with Copic markers. Copic markers used provided below.

Elizabeth Craft Designs: Joset's Release (Go Wild!)

Image
Hello - It's January and with a new month comes a whole bunch of new releases! This one I'm especially excited about. Joset from Elizabeth Craft Designs has a beautiful release full of jungle critters and equally adorable accessories to complete each animal.
Here is a card showcasing the new Monkey die and Jungle Leaves die. You can find all her new dies on the Elizabeth Craft Designs shop - here. There's a Zebra, Giffafe, Lion, even a Jeep! Seriously some fantastic designs to create fun jungle themed cards! I can't wait to show you more.

Ink Road Stamps: Mr & Mrs (Bella Flora)

Image
It's pretty much wedding season here in Australia - so I'm starting the year off using Ink Road Stamps Bella Flora to create this beautiful, monochrome white card. There is something very elegant and classy about white on white with a bit of gold!
Head on over to Ink Road Stamps blog for full instructions on how I created with card.  I've had a few questions about how I got the texture on the fie cut flowers - it's not am embossing folder!... I have a rather large collection of corrugated cardstock. It' perfect for adding texture to cards especially when using dies.  I used Ink Road Stamps Block Party Alphas and Wow Embossing Powder (gold) to stamp and emboss the sentiment. Kept it Simple: Mr & Mrs.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get a chance to try this very simple white on white technique using dies. I'll be showcasing all of Ink Road Stamps dies this month so keep an eye out on my next blog post for some die-cutting inspiration!

Craftin Desert Divas: Cupid Shot Me (Challenge #1)

Image
Happy New Year! I've had a very relaxed, slow start to 2019...Perhaps a little too relaxed as this is my first blog post for the year! 
Today I'm sharing a card I created using a freebie I received from Craftin Desert Divas. A perfect stamp to play with for loved themed Valentines cards. I've paired this stamp with a Craftin Desert Divas cloud die. Coloured in with COPIC Markers.

I've also decided to get back in to card challenges. Last year I mainly worked on design team projects and forgot how much I enjoy some of the challenges that are available - its a nice incentive to have a play and another reason to keep the blog updated!

Ink Road Stamps: Full Circle Recap 2018

Image
Hello!

The lovely Lara from Ink Road Stamps gave us (design team) a break for December. So if you're hanging out for some Ink Road inspiration I will be back in full swing come January 2019! In the mean time however, going through my photos (a little computer "spring" cleaning) I realised that one of my favourite Ink Road Stamps for 2018 was Full Circle. I've made quite a few cards with it and I wanted to share all the different ways this one stamp set could be used...


Check it out! All different - some of the cards I used the stamp set as a background, while others I used it to compliment other stamp sets. I'm looking forward to using this stamp set more in 2019, not to mention the new stamp sets coming soon to Ink Road Stamps.

Elizabeth Craft Designs: Winter Animals

Image
Hello! I feel I haven't posted on my blog for awhile in the lead up to Christmas! Not that I haven't been creating cards - I actually feel I've made too many cards (for Christmas) and my blog has just not been kept updated. However, I do hope you'll follow me on Instagram - My Little Paper World, I post all my cards here and it's a great way to follow my creative journey for the new year!
Today I'm sharing a set of cards I created using Elizabeth Craft Designs: Winter Animals stamp set. I really wanted to create a repetitive background using the small pattern stamp and I thought that sticking to a monochrome colour scheme would make it easier. What are your thoughts on a blue owl? Purple Bear? Pink Squirrel? or Orange Fox?  I used my Copic Markers to colour each animal in - again because I went with monochrome colours the colouring was very simple. I picked three to four shades of blue and individually coloured each section of the owl.

The sentiments on each c…
