Tutorial Thursday for La-La Land !!

Hi everyone...

It's my turn this week to do the tutorial for 
La-La Land crafts tutorial Thursday!!

I have made a shadow box card using lots of La-La Land dies..
It also folds flat so you can post easy in the mail!! 

Here are the steps to creating this project... Have fun!!

Step 1: 
Cut two panels 6" x 5.5"..

Step 2 : 
scor both pieces at 1/2", 1", 5", 5 1/2"

Step 3 : Cut out all the dies needed..
(I cut out doubles of some so that I could layer different colours for certain pieces)

Step 4 :
On the front panel decorate with designer papers and then line up where you want your window to be..

Step 5 : 
Use a pencil to trace the inside of your window opening..

Step 6 :
Cut out slightly past your pencil line to create an opening on the front panel

Step 7 :  
Adhere your die cut window onto your card

Step 8:
Adhere all your die cuts wherever you would like them to create a little scene

Step 9 : 
Decorate the inside of your panel... 
this will be where your window see's through too, 
I just added a little sentiment and some designer paper!!

Add double sided adhesive to the two side pieces..

Step 10 :
Join your two panels together so it then looks like this

Step 11 : 
Add some designer paper and a panel where you can write your message/greeting on the back

And there you have your little garden scene card with window...!!

I hope you will all enjoy it and have fun making one...

Snuggle bunnies Friends....

I wanted to make a card for the current MFT  sketch challenge, 
So here is the card I came up with...

I used the gorgeous new Snuggle bunnies stamps, Friends Die-namics 
and Blueprints 28....

I coloured up snuggle bunnies images using Copics 
and added some details with a white pen.

Blueprints 28 has an awesome die in it that makes a hidden opening, 
I used that to create an opening for the front of my card with a shaker pocket inside!!

Lots of sequins, stars and beads in the hidden shaker...

Designer papers are also by My favourite things...

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog, cos I sure enjoyed making this card :-) !!

Happy crafting, Hugz Ashlee

Green pastures shaker....!!

I have been LOVING using My Favourite Things products... 
they keep coming out with gorgeous images and fantastic dies!!

I coloured up this stamp called Green pastures using Copics and paper pieced her shirt using patterned MFT paper from the 6x6 Plaid patterns paper pad...

 Shaker cards are super fun to make so I incorporated one of those into the card too...

I added on some Pretty pink posh droplets for a cool little effect under the sentiment, I am just loving those little drops!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog... I hope you enjoyed my card and I shall see you all back here with more creations soon!!
