La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge #25
Wednesday means it's time for another La-La's Weekly Wednesday Challenge! This week our theme was set by Lisa and is to NOT use any designer paper (AKA patterned paper), either store bought or made yourself. I *love* using patterned paper so this was definitely a challenge for me, but it reminded me to use my Cuttlebug embossing folders, which I also love, so I was still happy with the outcome!
Here's my card:
Trying to show the versatility of La-La Land stamps, I actually used Pumpkin Lala for a Valentine's card! I just used a craft knife to carefully cut a slit right above her legs, and then inserted a couple hearts cut using my plain and scalloped heart Nesties. Before sticking the hearts in, I added a rub-on (it says adore if you can't see it so well) and cut off the bottom portion of the hearts so they wouldn't stick out below her legs.
To finish off the card I added a couple pieces of embossed cardstock, hand drew a line of glue pen that was covered with superfine glitter for a border, and tied a bit of ribbon with a button and crochet thread. The sketch is from Card Positioning Systems. I hope you like it!
We'd love to have you play along with us! All the details can be found on the La-La Land Crafts blog. TFL!
