Fun in the Sun - Let's Craft and Create for July 2022

For this month's challenge at Let's Craft and Create Challenge Blog we have the optional theme of

Fun in the Sun

I immediately thought of Reading on the Beach Marci and the little piggy in the deck chair from the June 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts kit. Plus a few other dies from La-La Land Crafts that I have been collecting!

So here is my card:

Here is a photo taken from the top so you can see the dimension:

Marci and the pig were stamped on X-Press It Blending card with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured with the following Copics markers:
  • skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20, 100, white gel pen
  • lips - RV17, RV19
  • bikini - BG32, BG15, BG57, white gel pen, green glitter pen
  • hair - E51, E53, E55, E57, E59
  • book - YR31, N0, N1, C00, orange glitter pen
  • pig - R000, R00, R11, C1, C3, R30
  • bathers - R24, R46, R89
  • chair - YG11, YG25, C1, C3
  • drink - R46, B00, Y15, YG03
  • beach (under chair) - E31, E33, E30
I stamped the beach towel from the June 2020 Club La-La Land Crafts kit on to one of the papers from Summer Vibes Paper Pack from La-La Land Crafts, then I fussy cut around the border.

I then die cut from white card stock the Seaside die from La-La Land Crafts which I have coloured with twisted citron, tumbled glass and salty ocean Distress Oxide inks.

Here is Marci on her towel and the seaside die before it is coloured:

Here is the seaside die coloured:

I then die cut yellow card stock with the new Sun Smiles die from La-La Land Crafts and die cut white card stock with the Three Clouds die set also from La-La Land Crafts.
On one of the clouds, I stamped the sentiment "Fun in the Sun" from the June 2015 Club La-La Land Crafts kit in Nautical Blue Memento ink.

Here is a close up of Marci before she was fussy cut:

I adhered the coloured seaside pieces on to a Kraft card from Envelope Solutions using double-sided tape. I glued the sun and clouds on to the sky, then using double-sided tape, adhered the beach towel. Using foam tape, I adhered the pig and Marci on to the front.
Here is another photo of the finished card:

As usual I found inspiration from the La-La Land Crafts DT, who showcased some awesome projects on the La-La Land Crafts blog and as usual, from the wonderful Alyce at Kit and Clowder and her fantastic monthly classes.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
