Escape to Paradise!

Hi everyone! I'm really excited to be hopping with the talents of the La-La Land Crafts Design team today. And today the design team is showcasing the new Summer 2011 Marci and Luka stamps. You'll want to leave a comment on every blog you visit along the way to be eligible to win one each of the 6 new stamps in the Summertime collection. That's three new Marci stamps and three new Luka stamps!! And let me tell you ladies, these stamps are A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E!

I had a blast coloring up Summer Luka. He totally reminds me of my 3 1/2 year old son Logan. That connection made working with this image so much more fun! I colored up Summer Luka with my Copic markers and layered him onto Stampin Up cardstock and Cloud 9 design paper from my paper stash. The waves were cut out using my MFT "Catch a Wave" die-namics die and the hydrangeas are by Prima. The sentiment comes from an MFT stamp set called Clearly Sentimental about Summer Vacation.

I recently worked on a seashell mini album and had all my "Under the Sea" materials still out on the side of my desk.... so I decided to incorporate some of those goodies onto this card for a sort of "beach/sea" theme. I love how it came out!








Here are the Copic colors I used for my Summer Luka:

La-La Land Crafts Summer 2011 rubber cling mount stamps will be coming soon to Stampers Dream, so be sure to check back!

Thanks for stopping by today!

hugs!!
