La La Land Crafts Inspiration Friday - "Fun in the Sun"!

Welcome to another Inspiration Friday with the La La Land Crafts design team! We hope you play along with us this week -- the theme is "Fun in the Sun!" And the new dies & Hawaiian stamps from La La Land Crafts perfectly compliment this theme! :-)

I used Hula Marci and some of the new LLLC dies on my project today... isn't Hula Marci just adorable?! ❤

I attached the sun from the Cloud, Sun & Island die set at the center and pulled on it lightly to make it "pop" from the card... an easy way to create dimension! ❤

The little turtle comes with the Hula Marci stamp set... he is floating around the ocean with his little fish friends that I fussy cut from the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue papers. The "ocean" was created using La La Land Crafts Wave Border die and some of the Tropical Travelogue paper. Super fun! ❤

I die cut the Palm Tree with my Vagaboond using kraft cardstock, then used my Ranger Distress Inks to color it up... I added brown Recollections pearl bling as the coconuts... 

I always finish up the inside of my cards by bringing in some of the design paper and elements to tie everything together...❤

I hope you enjoyed my project today! Be sure to head over to the La La Land Crafts blog for more inspiring projects from the design team!

Have an AMAZING weekend everyone!

hugs! ❤

Hi Arlene -
Love this card and how you pay
attention to all the detail.
Love your style! I was curious
on the heavily embellished cards that
have to be mailed, what type of
envelope do you use? thanks....Pam
