August Club La-la Land Pop-Up Book Card

This is Day 5 (the last day) of the La-la Land Crafts monthly project kit that started in the month of August 2014 - check out the club details here.  This is the first kit La-la Land offered.  My blog has posted each of the projects included in the kit as of October 27, 2014.   There is an option to purchase only the stamps and dies each month.  I chose the full kit which comes with the stamps, dies, paper, embellishments and detail instructions for each project. And, of course, there is the option to be creative outside the box, too. These stamps and dies are not available for purchase for one year so being in the club makes it ever so exclusive and special.  Continuing Mermaid Marci theme: This card is an additional  card, not part of the 3 monthly projects - I really wanted to stamp the shell for one of the cards.  There is plenty of paper and embellishments leftover to make way more cards so this is one of them. This card is a 6x6 size. 
Card base is Bazzil's Rust and Olive mat is textured card stock.  That wonderful embossed decorative paper is from the kit - yummy!!!! The die cut star fish are popped with foam squares.  The oval is also cut with Bazzil Rust textured card stock as the mat with Recollections Neutral color as the oval on top of the rust.....pop it up with foam squares.
A stamped fish popped with foam squares on the left side.
Copic colors used for the shell:  E19, E50, E53, E99 with a larger adhesive pearl in the center.
And, don't you love her hair combination of turquoise blue and green?  I hadn't done Mermaid Marci using these colors so this card was perfect to try. Copic colors used are BG11, BG13, BG45, BG53, YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97.
Card inside: The paper used is from the kit. It is the matt version of the card with slightly different color front which is perfect for this card style. Inside card base is also the Rust color from Bazzil. The seaweed is Bazzil's Green. The solid card stock mats are from Recollections Neutral paper pack. There is a A2 card size in the Silhouette store but this 6x6 card style/measurements is called a Pop-Up Book Card and can be found on Beccy's here.

Thank you for stopping by today................the La-la Land Club September kit has been received but I have not had a chance to work on the projects yet but stay tuned....they will be posted. In addition, please note the 2014 La-la Land Craft Retreat has finished and I will also be busily working on completing those projects to be posted, too.

OMG, Patti...all of your Mermaid Marcie cards are fabulous! Exquisite and unusual (but beautiful) color combos...and you layered all the stamped and die cut elements on each card so perfectly! Especially like the pop up book card base you used on this one...I need to try one soon too!
