La-La Land Crafts Challenge #21…

This week the design team and guest designers for La-La are making “shape” cards…anything other than a rectangle or square….so take off creative people and let’s see what you can come up with! I decided to color up Happy Maya with my copic sketch markers,  cut her out and let her out of the barn! Moooo-oooh lala!  I wanted the rooster to be crowing that but the banner just didn’t fit over there and it was too late to turn the rooster around! lol  The rooster is a Tonic punch and I hand cut the hay. Bringing up Tonic makes me want to mention the paper cutters I use. “Commercial”………..I LOVE the Tonic Guillotine cutters!  The only ones for me and I have them all! Just in case you’re lookin’ for the best cutter out there!  The barn is cut three times on the Cricut, 2 red and 1 brown from the newer Everyday Paper Doll cartridge at 5.5 inches. I used a Karen Foster ribbon brad at the end of the banner.
Here’s my card for this challenge…


Happy Maya is stamped with Memento Black Ink on Neenah Classic Crest 80# card-stock. I stamped the barn with my Stampin Up Sanded background stamp and edged everything with distress ink.


The hearts on the inside are from a Stampin Up punch…very fun!  I wish I’d thought to use some nestabilities on the inside…*sigh*….always forgetting stuff! lol


Sorry about all the pictures… I decided to take a picture of the stamps to show you how I did the words.  I used my stampamajig!  oh my,  “Commercial”  I LOVE my stampamajig!!!  do you all use one?  I could do a tutorial,  if it’s something you might like….just pictures,  I don’t have a video camera.  whew! lol

I used three stamps from Printworks. All stamped in Versafine Black Onyx ink…love this ink for just traditional stamping…a very sharp crisp image.

  • C2902 Merci (just the “m”)
  • C2873 Oooh La La
  • D2242 Laughter is the Sun (I couldn’t find this one to link it, when I do, I’ll come back and add it)

See the other designer’s creations on the La-La Land Crafts blog!  Wishing you lots of laughter!
