La-La Land Crafts - Mini Box Card Tutorial


Hi I am here with a Mini Box Card tutorial for
These great cards will fit all your Mini Marci
size stamps.


So first I cut a template 11 and a quarter by 4 and a quarter inches.
Score a long the centre at 1 3/4 Inches. Then on the long side score
at 3 1/2, 5 1/2, 9 and 11. Cut down the score lines on the top only
to the 1 3/4 inch line. Cut out the 1/4 inch section on the top.


Cut 3 insets 4 x 1 inches and score each end  1/8 of an inch.

Here is my main card cut out.

Cut 3 insets 4 x 1 inches and score each end  1/8 of an inch.

These are my layers for the bottom of the box.
Cut 1 of 3 3/8 x 2 3/8
Cut 2 of  2 3/8 x 1 7/8

Cut 1 of 3 2/8 x 2 2/8
Cut 2 of 2 2/8 x 1 6/8

These are the layers for the top of the box.
Cut 2 of 3 3/8 x 1 5/8
1 7/8 x 1 5/8

Cut 2 1 6/8 x 1 5/8
Cut 2 3 2/8 x 1 4/8

Here they are layered.

Now to pop the inserts in you tape them to the small end
 equal distance apart this will be the inside of your card.

Then join your box then arange your inserts as in the picture
 make sure they are flush with the top of the box.

Then decorate. I have used 
Stamp Set
Dies

Also on the back of the Card I stuck a piece of white 4 1/4 x 3 1/2 cardstock.
So I could write on or stamp a sentiment. Dont forget it does fold down flat
and fits in a regular size envelope.

This is another one I did with the same box design.

Stamping Bella - Inlayed Lacey



  Hi I am here with my post for  Stamping Bella Wonderful Wednesday.
This week there is not a sequin in sight. I have  created an inlay die card!
Yes it can be done a card created without sequins!
To start with I used the very Cute LACEY HAS A LETTER rubber stamp
also avaliable as a "CUT IT OUT" die on its own or a BUNDLE where
 you save 15% off.

I then coloured her up in Copics and fussy cut her out yes I know
it is going to be a big shopping cart full of "Cut It OUT's" for me
for my next session of retail therapy. I then used these pretty new
 papers layered up that just somehow turned up on my craft table 😉.
 I then decided to cut my top white layer and die cut out the word
"Happy" with a LLLC's Die I then foam taped a few strips across 
the back and popped the word back in it which I find can be very 
effective. I used one of Make It Crafty's Chippies for the Birthday. 
Not happy at all how that photographed it really is a pretty pink top
 and aqua bottom. I then finished her off with a matching button in
 her hair threaded with matching copic coloured cotton.

Hope you get a good week of crafting in
See you next week

Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Shaker Card!


Hi I am here for The Rubber Buggy to show you how to put
 together  this Awesome and I mean Awesome and a must have 
for any cardmaker die  the LF Scalloped Box Card.
So all the dies are in the packet and lots of embellishing
ones too that I didn't use. First I cut out two of the Box.
I also used the small layer die to cut out one of the larger 
scalloped tops to make a window.


I cut 3 of the inserts.


Then I put accetate over it and my 3M tape 
popped a few sequins in it.

I then created the background using 8.5cm x 10 cm 




































Then placing it over the sequins.
I then added a layer cutting two 5.3cmx 5.3cm and one
5.3cm x 7.9 cm

cutting two 5.3cm x 4.5cm and one 4.5cm x 7.9cm

  
I then used the layers from the kit this is the bottom of the box
and missed the pic for the top layer. I used
LF Winter Perfectly Plaid.


So you can see the shaker here and see where I have joined
the two pieces together.


I then taped each end of the inserts I placed them on the smaller 
section equally apart.


I taped the joining piece on the end and if you lay them all flat
you fold the bigger section down and they all fit perfectly in the
 right spots.

this how it folds for a standard envelope too!


With all its layers on and you can see the shaker.


Then to decorate! I used Christmas as I like to do Christmas
Cards 2 a month so by the time I get to Christmas I have done
most of them. I used the Fabulous LF Cheery Christmas Set.


Love the way it come out. The sentiment is from
LF Big Scripty Words Winter.

and Checkered Edge which goes so perfect with it. I used the

this paper I was given" Perfect" but when I put it all together it
looks like he is 18 he he he. Make him feel young :)

Pina Colada _ Stamping Bella

Hi its's Jennifer here with Wonderful Wednesday.
This week I thought I would have some fun colouring up these 
Gorgeous Tropical Girls aren't they just Adorable in there Coconut and
Pineapple outfits and gotta love those sunnies!

Hi I am here with Wonderful Wednesday for
This week I thought I would have some fun colouring up these 
Gorgeous Tropical Girls aren't they just Adorable in there Coconut and
Pineapple outfits and gotta love those sunnies!
Ok I have used TROPICAL SQUIDGIES rubber stamp and dont forget the
"CUT IT OUT" die avalible on its own or BUNDLE where you save 15% off.
Soooo much easier than fussy cutting I am telling you.

So I got to pull out the new Oxide Inks and Inked around the edges using 
Peeled Paint.

I made a shaker and used the fossilized amber and spiced marmalade inks
on the background with matching sequins. I diecut  a LF Scalloped Circle and
inked it in peeled paint . I then dimensionalized it onto the front of the card.

 Take note stamp the inside with your sentiment before glueing
it together or you might just have to do it again😉 (Good Practice)
I then layered on to orange card stock and then on to my card base.


Added my adorable Image coloured in copics and scattered a few sequins around.
and Voila.

Look forward to seeing you all next week.
Happy Crafting

Lawn Fawn Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up with The Mermaids


Hi I am here with my weekly post for the The Rubber Buggy and this week
I used the new LF Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up and it is a must have to
any card makers collection. It has all the  dies for your layers, Box
 and inserts and even some great Embelishments. 
I did add an extra layer I cut myself in the purple but it really
 didn't need it. The papers I used were the new gorgeous 
LF Rainbow Perfectly Plaid  they are so yummy as I do like purple.
I also used Mermaid For You stamp set and Mermaids for you Cuts.
I coloured them up with Copics. I stamped all the Coral and Seaweed
in matching  Lawn Fawn Inks.


Aren't they all just adorable!
You can see here I used 3 inserts in the box so I could get more in it
but you can use 2. I also used  acetate to get the fish up higher
so it looks like they are swimming around the mermaid and merman.

So the best part about this cool card is it folds down flat to 
send in a standard envelope how good is that!

 Hope you enjoyed this one
Next week I will show you how easy it is to put together
incase you get stuck with it.

All these products and more are avaliable at the
The Rubber Buggy Shop and don't forget to visit us on Facebook  look for the Videos
