Spit Happens Llama Card

Not sure why Lorenzo the Llama needed to be in a photo for the spit happens card, but that was the design that was in my head.

I added Glossy Accents to the spit drops to make them appear wet.

So, I was procrastinating…I should have been working on my personal Mother’s Day cards. Or finishing up my spring cleaning.

You Are My Love Puffin Card

Another gift from Offspring3!

I dotted the “ground” with my Copics – to look like a rocky perch for the puffin pair.

Supplies: Stamps – Avery Elle, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Basic Gray, Real Red, inks – Copic B0000, C1, C3, C5, C7, YR04, YR68, Y18, VersaFine Onyx Black, Satin Red, Smokey Gray, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (rectangle), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Ranger clear.


Alpaca My Scarf Cards

Offspring3 is very generous about feeding my inner stamping monster! She has recently become enamored of the small clear stamp sets that cost less than $5. Most companies have some offering in that range.

This alpaca set is by Lawn Fawn – ADORABLE.

I stenciled snow around the alpaca, and I used my MISTI to get the individual sentiments straight and well spaced.

This is a perfect card for this winter – the past few weeks have been SO COLD. BRRRRRRRR! (I am typing this at 6:00 AM on January 7, 2018 – it is 3 degrees on my outdoor thermometer (suction cupped to the kitchen window)! I later heard the official low at the airport 10 miles east of us was 1 degree.)

And, of course, I finished a second version of this card before getting my photography done:

Supplies: Stamps – Lawn Fawn, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue (retired), Real Red, Soft Sky, inks – Copic E41, E51, R29, Stampin’ Up! Bashful Blue (retired), Soft Sky, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Spellbinders, stencil – My Favorite Things (Snowfall), embossing folder – Provo Craft, embossing powder – Ranger clear.
