La-La Land Crafts Inspiration Monday-One for the Boys & use brads/eyelets

Today is another La-La Land Crafts Inspirational Monday showcase for you. If you head on over to the La-La Land Crafts Blog you can see the awesome creations from my fellow DT sisters. :) La-La Land Crafts is posting inspiration every Monday & Friday. My fellow DT members are split into two teams, Team Monday and Team Friday, so you'll get to see tons of ideas using the uber-CUTE Marci & Luka stamps. You can participate too and upload your creations to the Gallery! We would love to see your work! So get your La-La Land stamps out and join us in our weekly inspiration.

The inspiration today is to make a BOY card and incorporate brad and/or eyelets. I decided to ink up Pilot Luka.....I think he's so cute in his cardboard box plane! When my nephew was little he used to make all sorts of stuff out of cardboard. My nephew is now 15 and over 6 feet tall so fitting in a box now is quite ridiculous, but he still likes to make things out of paper towel rolls! He's very creative! My little boy has quite the imagination also so I can absolutely picture him playing airplane in a cardboard box. :)

Coloring Medium: Copics & Chalk
Luka:
Skin: E000, chalk
Hair: E29, E25, E33,
Hat & Clothes: E29, E25, E33, E37,
C3, Liquid Applique
Box: E55, chalk, B93, YR04, R29

Tuffy:
E000, chalk, E25, E55, C3, R29, R24


Did you notice all the brads? Those airplanes in the corners are fabric brads from the Paper Studio...pretty cool, huh?! I also have small light blue brads in the corners of the center strip and light brown brads on the Stars embossed cardstock. I rubbed orange chalk over the stars to bring out the embossing.

I added light blue anchors for the plane propellers and secured them with a dark brown brad. The dps are from K&Company. The kraft cardstock is from Recollections and the light blue cardstock was from my stash. All the paper edges are distressed with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

I used a Martha Stewart border punch to make the sentiment tag. The word "Soar" is a CTMH stamp. The rest of it is my handwriting. I raised Pilot Luka and the panel behind him with pop-dots for added dimension.

Okay, are you ready for some more blog candy? Today, I'm offering up Luka with Truck! If you want a chance at winning this handsome fellow, please leave a comment on this post. This candy will be up for two weeks, so you have until August 1st (midnight, CST) to leave a comment. I would love for you to advertise this candy on your blog, but it's not necessary to win. I will do the drawing on August 2nd. If you make a project during this time and post it to the GALLERY, come back and leave a second comment to increase your chances of winning. Since this candy is going for a longer period of time, I will add some additional goodies along with it. GOOD LUCK!
Have a great week! Don't forget to check the La-La Land Crafts blog on Friday for more inspiration. Oh....and I almost forgot.....this week there will be tons of new releases for CHA!! I will have a card up tomorrow showcasing two of the new stamps....WOO HOO!

Hugs,
Rosie

I love this card - it shows me, a recent card maker, how to really do a challenge card! The plane brads, the propellers and the brad anchoring them, the brads at the corner of the center panel and more. I to am in awe of your paper choices and how they tie into the image, the focus. I would love to color in a La La Land Luka, I love them all and with my son and three nephews I am always making birthday cards for boys
