Happy Birthday La-La Land Crafts!

Hello there inky friends!  Today I'm joining the fun and celebration of La-La Land Crafts 5th Birthday Bash!  Woweee...5 fabulous years!  I'm thrilled to share in the celebration and the birthday fun with all my crafty peeps and look forward to many, many more crafty celebrations to come!  

I am honored to have been asked to share in the 5th Birthday celebration by sharing some card-a-rific creations featuring the August Club Kit!  Check it out on the Subscription page HERE!  Take one peek at this fab kit and you'll know it's definitely fit for a partay!  This month's kit will also include a very special surprise giftie for YOU and I know you will just love it!!  

I'll share more about the fun Birthday Bash Giveaway on IG and FB groups at the end of my post so make sure to read to the end...It's AHHHMAAZING!  But for now, I'll share my cute projects! Hope you enjoy!!!
My first card was created featuring the adorable critters of La-La Land and the new set called "From All of Us".  They're all dolled up and ready to partay!  Of course I had to give each little critter a party hat to get into the spirit.  I used Copics to help them come to life!

I mean, who can resist this little hammie?  He's prepped and ready for the fun bash and those cheeks prove that his cupcake taste testing skills are on point!

My next card features the newest Marci set called "Birthday Present Marci". Have you seen a Marci with freckles?  Well, she's got 'em here!  hee hee hee...
I used the fun number balloons die set "Balloon Numbers" to create a mask for stenciling a fun background behind Marci.  To help add some sparkle and shine, I added golden washi tape to the top, bottom and middle of the background.  Marci also needed a fun BIG balloon to bring to the party so I popped a cheery yellow balloon from the die "Balloon" onto the card as well.  This die is fun because it includes the balloon and the little ribbon.  I cut the ribbon twice to allow for a central ribbon on the ballon.
I gave Marci a few darker strands of hair to give a little whispy look and to give her a bit more texture in her locks.  The sentiment worked perfectly for this card. 
My third card incorporates a little more of a twist on the dies.  I used the same stencil I created for the other card to add number balloons to the background.  I also used the scraps from the yellow balloon I diecut to create a little frame for the statement.  
Giving the background a quick brush of white acrylic paint gave the background paper a fun texture and also added to the funk of this card.  I splattered some white paint on the card too.  Adding that fun number balloon was an embellishing touch to finish things off!

Before attaching the card panel to the base, I used my sewing machine to stitch some lines on the paper.  SOOO fun and funky!  Love it!

And there you have it!  Three mighty fun and fabulous cards made with this mighty fun and fabulous Club kit!  You've gotta love it!
