La-La Land is gearing up for summer with new Design Team Members and some fun new stamps! We're hopping around today so you can see some amazing creations by the new team featuring these fabulous new stamps, and we hope you'll join along. If you didn't just arrive from the illustrious Cindy Haffner's blog, then be sure to head on back to the La-La Land CraftsBlog for the full details. 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!!

For my card today I got to use the adorable new Beach Marci! I love her little floaty, and the old fashioned striped bathing suit is just too cute!! And that bucket hat?? LOVE it! To color her, I used my copics (of course) and included E50, 51 and 53; R00 and 30, Y11, 13, 15 and YR 15, 23 and 31; BG000, 01, 02 and 05. Phew! The paper is some old SU! designer paper that had a perfect summer sun feel to it!

Now keep on hopping to see what my good friend (and amazing stamper) Jane/Izzy has for you today, and don't forget to comment along the way so you can win!

Simple and sweet...

Somtimes, simple is the best way to go! I am definitely a fan of clean and simple when it comes to layouts, but also for my images and even embellishments sometimes. This card is certainly an example of that.

I colored Marci's sweet little Panda bear with my W1, 3, 5 and 7 markers (with a little R000, R21 &22 for the collar) I paired him up with some MME Stella Rose papers and fun ric rak, added a sentiment from My Favorite Things, and that was it. A super fast, easy card. Every card doesn't have to be a masterpiece, some can just be! :-)

Speaking of masterpieces, did you see that we have a Design Team Call up for La-La Land Crafts right now?? Why don't you check it out, and you could start creating masterpieces for us here in La-La Land!!
