Inspiration Monday--One for the Boys

Good morning my friends! I hope you had a great weekend! It's Monday and time for another La-La Land Inspiration Challenge. The theme this week is:

One for the Boys

I have a little boy Isaiah, who is cutie patootie! He'll be 6 in June so this challenge is right up my alley. Surprisingly, I haven't done a "boy" card in a while. It's probably because I do "boy" scrapbook pages so I like to make something girly with my cards.

I had a blast making this card!! I kept thinking of Isaiah and how he likes to watch all the super-hero cartoons and act out being a super-hero. So it was only natural that I would use Star Boy Luka for my card this week.....isn't he the cutest thing ever?!?! He was actually one of the first LLLC stamps I purchased, along with the Super Hero Stamp Set (another fave). :) :)

Copics & Chalk:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, chalk
Hair: E49, E37, E13
Mask/Gloves/Boots/Belt: C7, C5, C3, Copic Multiliner .5
Cape: R24, R27, R29, C5, C3
Shirt: N0, N2, colorless blender, R27, Y11, Y15
Shorts: B91, B93, B95

For my card layout, I decided to use this AWESOME Becky Fleck sketch featured on the CropStop Challenge Blog this week. You still have until Wednesday evening, March 7th, to enter CropStop Challenge #60 for a chance at winning not only a $15 gift certificate to the store, but also Becky Fleck's featured Spellbinder Die.

The CropStop challenge is OVALS, plus use one of Becky's Pagemaps!!

I used Becky's CARD Pagemap for my inspiration. The dps are from a Close To My Heart paper pack called "Superhero" (X7152B). I LOVE this new paper pack!! I even bought the matching rub-ons & badge buttons....sooooo stinkin' CUTE! As you can see, I also used my NEW Becky Fleck Labels & Tags Spellbinder Die featured in the sketch.

Did you find my "OVAL" yet? It's the caption bubble.....yeah, I almost forgot to include an oval so I added the caption bubble which is an oval shape. It came from another NEW Close To My Heart stamp set called "Super Powers" (C1485). It all coordinates, hee, hee!! I'm just so giddy with excitement!!

The yellow star-bursts on the top dp are cut from a Memory Box die called Winged Swirl. I cut out the die first. Next, I cut out a small circle in the middle of the star-bursts and then cut them in half and glued them down.

On the inside of the card, I embossed some kraft cardstock with Cuttlebug Polka Dots and distressed the edges with Walnut Stain. The front part of the card is cut shorter so the embossed polka dots peek out when the card is closed.

I hope you enjoyed viewing this card as much as I enjoyed making it!! :) Now don't forget you can play along with the La-La Land Crafts Challenge, ONE FOR THE BOYS, and upload your creations to the LLLC Gallery. We do a random drawing at the end of each month for a gift certificate to the LLLC Store. You can see more inspiration from my fellow DT sisters on the LLLC blog today and also on Friday.

Have a great week!
Rosie :)
