Introducing La-La Land Crafts!

This is the first of MANY cards you will see from me using those adorable stamps from La-La Land Crafts. I just LOVE these unique images! This one is called Rosie Sitting With Cat. Naturally, I can't resist a stamp that includes a cat. I colored this kitty orange for my friend Lisa, who has an orange cat named Billy.

I colored Rosie and her cat with my Copics. The DP is from Basic Grey Infusion. It doesn't photograph well, but I added some sparkle to the flower by giving it a dusting of glitter. Very sparkly IRL.

This card is for our very first La-La Land Weekly Wednesday Challenge on the La-La Land Crafts Blog. This week's challenge is hosted by our very own Design Team Coordinator Jane Matsumoto. Not only is Jane super talented, but she is super sweet as well. I've loved her from the start!

The challenge is called "Flower Power." You must have at least one flower somewhere on the card. It can be Prima flowers (or similiar), pressed flowers, embossed flowers, stamped flowers, etc. The challenge is to use your flower(s) in a way where it stands out but the main focus should still be your stamped image.

Flowers are practically a staple of cardmaking, so you simply must join us! And trust me, you definitely want to play! All who enter in the first challenge will be placed in a drawing to win a Window Lala stamp! Not only that, but the top three entries will be awarded a special La-La Land Crafts badge to proudly display on their blog, and the top winner will receive not only a badge but a 25% discount on their order from La-La Land Crafts!!!

So, what are you waiting for? Get out those stamps and flowers and get inky! You may use any stamps you want, but if you have any La-La Land Crafts stamps, why not give them some love!

Be sure to post your entry on the La-La Land Crafts Blog, where you can find more information and details on the challenge and prizes, and have a look at the lovely creations by the rest of the Design Team. If you post your card to Splitcoaststampers, be sure to add LLWWC1 as a Keyword. We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
