Dancing in the Rain Marci Card

A 2 day workshop hosted by La-la Land Crafts/Irina was held early June.  This annual event has never fell short of expectations. There are 11 extreme projects within the 2 day workshop held at the Beverly Heritage in Milpitas, California.  This was so much fun to attend and experience with old friends and some new ones, too.  Completed projects are not listed in any order – hope you will find them as breath taking and enjoyable as I had making them.  So here goes with the first project:

Original intended image for this card is using the recent release Baby Luka stamp. Changed the image to use the Dancing in the Rain Marci only from Club La-la Land March 2015 Project Kit. This project: a large special shaped card with a lot of interesting embellishments using La-la Land Crafts dies. There are lots of shaped layers. Note there is a doily underneath the popped Stitched Circle die.  Finished card size: 7-1/2” x 7”.
Dies used: (Most are newly released, too)
Open Hearts Doily Border
Heart Fan
Flag banner
Stitched Cloud and Sun
Moon and Stars Banner
Stitched Circles
Hanging Hearts
All these dies can be found here in the La-la Land Crafts shop found here.
Copic colors:
Face: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: W2, W4, W6, W8
Head band: Y000, Y17, Y24, BG00, B91, B93
Boots: Y000,Y17, YR24
Umbrella, Socks, and Jumper: BG000, BG00, B91, B93, E18, E21, E23
Note the Open Hearts Doily Border is on three sides of the card. To achieve the look: be sure to cut two doilies (that six doilies total for this project) to ensure it is sturdy.  Adhere 2 layers of the Doily  together, then press the Doily onto Versamark Ink, sprinkle some Stampendous Glitter mix – them shoot it with a heat gun.
 The banner is cut twice:: offset it to show, then curl it to reveal the underside. 
 Love the double layer Stitched Clouds (and Sun) die:
 Cute bow with a nice blue button and twine tie:
At the bottom of the card: the Moon and Stars Banner is cut apart – aligned at the bottom.  Effect is made the same as the Open Hearts Doily Border.
Note the Heart Fan is cut twice: used on each side of Marci.  
Card inside:
Five layers of the special shape with a heart (it’s from the Open Hearts Doily Border).
Card back:  Stitched Circle Die used for the back as a nice finishing touch
 Card back a nice finishing touch with the Stitched Circles:
Thank you for stopping by today.  Stay tuned for 10 more projects from this workshop.
