La~La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday ~ Anything but a Card

Happy Friday! I cannot believe that the weekend is here already! The kids have had a great week at school and are happy and looking forward to this new school year! Looks like slowly we are getting back into a routine. We are still waiting to see if my son will make double letter hockey before we will know his hockey schedule. After that we can figure out the days they will take their music lessons. My Irish dance and Pilates classes are starting up in a couple of weeks too. I am a bit fanatical about us all eating supper together as a family so it takes careful planning and sometimes we eat at 4:45 but hey we get to be together and talk about our day. So planning it is a little bit like a jigsaw puzzle!

Once again it is time to show you what I created for this week’s  La-Land Land Crafts Inspiration Friday.

Every Monday and Friday La-La Land Crafts new Design Team will be bringing you a new inspirational theme. You are more than welcome to play along as we would love to see your creations with La-La Land Craft stamps. Please link your projects to our Customer Gallery.

The theme this week was “Anything but a Card” and so I decided to create a fun door hanger with one of the new Halloween Images. These are so easy to make and such a fun little addition to your home decor.

Pirate Marci Halloween copy

I used Buccaneer Marci. I love her little head-scarf and long flowing hair. As per usual she was colored up with my Copic Sketch markers. The background papers are just bits and pieces of left over Halloween scraps from last year. I cut out my hanger from some sturdy cardboard and then adhered the paper right on top. I cut out the circle opening with Spellbinders die and then created a little bit of a decorated piece to make it look neater.

The scene was created with shapes that I downloaded and cut using my Silhouette SD. Have I mentioned how much I {heart} this machine! LOL! Finally, I just cut up some gauze and adhered it here and there to the hanger.

Here’s a close-up of the coloration. I used Copic Sketch Markers:

  • Skin  E000, E00, E11, R20
  • Hair: E50, Y21, E31, E33
  • Clothing: C3, C5, C7, C9, R17, E07

I am entering this in the  Creative Card Crew (anything goes) Challenge.

Hope you enjoyed our fun challenge. We hope to see your cards in the customer gallery. Thanks for stopping by!
