First let me show you my project using a La-La Land Crafts Stamp Set called "Luka" which I purchased at Ginger Snap Scraps.   

I made this cute card.  I just love this stamp set -- I think it's just too stinkin' cute.  I also bought "Marci" so I'm sure you will be seeing projects using that stamp set too.

This is a standard A-2 card measuring 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I used paper called Superhero from Close to My Heart for this card.  I stamped "Luka" on white cardstock and colored him using Chocolate, Black, and Bamboo markers.  I used our Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge to cut the mattes beneath Luka.  The scalloped oval can be found on page 52, D2, < Oval4 > cut at 3 1/2" x 4 3/4" (using the Fit to Length key).  The oval inside can be found on page 42, C2, < Oval3 > cut at 3" x 4 1/4" (again using the Fit to Length key), and the small scalloped circle with the stamped sentiment (also from the "Luka" stamp set) was cut at 1 1/4" and can be found on page 41, C1, < Circle3 >.

As you can see my second picture is a little blurry -- that's because I put "Luka" on an adhesive spring to make him wobbly! 

Supplies Used:
La-La Land Crafts Stamp Set - Luka 
Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (Z1686) 
Superhero paper (X7152B)
Sky cardstock (X5917)
Black marker (Z2305)
Bamboo marker (Z2303)

I think he turned out great and I'm so glad to have bought this stamp set from Ginger Snap Scraps -- they have GREAT customer service!  I hope you enjoyed my project.  Can't wait to read your comments as usual!
