La-La Lands Weekly Wednesday Challenge!!

Hello and welcome to La-La Land Crafts first ever challenge
Ooooo it's all exciting.

I've been dying to play with these stamps and inbetween clearing out the lounge, looking after Poppy and organising a party for next Friday (Poppy's 1st Birthday) I had to make some time and sit down and make a card for Jane's challenge. Yup, thats right, the lovely and very talented Jane has come up with this weeks challenge. I'm not normally a girly girl and after seeing Jane's title 'Flower Power', I did panic a little. I use flowers on my cards, but not many - But hey - Its Lala and if she wants flowers, she will have them :D

Here I have used Fairy Lala and coloured her with Copics

"I will take you to the sky with my wand and my wings,
we will dream of purple lollipops and other sweet things"

She is so adorable - this is one of my favorite stamps in the Lala collection, you can find Fairy Lala here and all the other Lala's, Rosies and Animals here too!

I have used the papers from my Guest Designer Package that Irina kindly sent along with my Stamps. I'm sorry I dont know who it is by. It was double sided, one side had the fabulous glittered stripes and the other side had the flowers which Lala is backed onto, and the punched flowers.

I used the Cuttlebug to cut out the Circles and the Scalloped Circles. I love this effect. I didnt want to mount Lala using foam pads so I got out my Acetate andcbut a strip off. I then looped it double sided stickied it together then stuck it on the centre of the card. I carefully placed Lala ontop (and she looks fairly centred :D yey). The flowers are from my Retro Punch, brads from stash. OOoo I nearly forgot to mention, I glittered her wings and her wand with Glamour Dust then added a little star charm on the top right corner flower... (Thank you Amy for my pretty charm)!

Well I guess thats all I have to say about my card. Have you been and seen all the other cards the team have made? Including the guest designers!?!? (I think everyone has had their packages so you should see a fab collection of Lala and her friends),

If you've recieved yours, head on over and join in with us !! But don't worry - if you don't have a Lala stamp - you can still play :D

The winner will receive a huge 25% off in store :D
Can you imaging the savings to buy more stamps with hehe!!
Everyone who enters will be put into a draw for a FREE Window Lala! How cool is that.
She is so pretty and dreamy!

Have fun, and Happy Crafting
I am away in London for a few days tomorrow (Thurs) , so I wont be around to answer any emails or go blog hopping, so I will see you all on Sunday :D

Your card is so adorable, Kimmi! I love those flowers on each corner! They just make the card "Pop"! The added charm is a very nice touch! Love it!
Have a pleasant day!

Maureen said...

Totally fabulous card! Your coloring is just perfect and those flowers are great!! Also love the idea to use the acetate ring to mount her - I'm guessing that means she moves when you touch her? Very cool!!

Wow Kim, fabulous card and coloring of La La, the eyes are a bit big for her face, but you've done a great job on her, love the pink hair, a nice change from the regular hair colors, and I like your layout with the nestie circles and how you've got flowers in all four corners.
