Hi lovelies! I’m Claudia (@mrsclocards) and today I wanna share with you this cute card I made for my mom’s birthday using one of my favorite stamp set, Llamazing Llamas, and its coordinating dies. As you probably noticed, I love making cards that resemble patterned paper by filling them with a bunch of critters: I usually leave the background white and color the animals but this time I wanted to change and I did the opposite. ^__^ We all love Distress Oxide backgrounds, don’t we?
Speaking of backgrounds, that was the first thing I did. I took a piece of Heffy Doodle White Cardstock and I ink blended it with Distress Oxide Worn Lipstick, Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade. I added splatters of white pearl watercolor, let it dry and then die cut it using the second largest rectangle from the Imperial Stitched Rectangles dies. I also used the biggest die to die cut a rectangle from kraft carstock to use as my card base. Using foam tape, I attached the colored background over the kraft one and set them aside.
On a sheet of Heffy Doodle Alcohol Marker Friendly cardstock I stamped the cuties and the accessories from the Llamazing Llamas stamp set twice (some even three times), along with a crown (Absotoothly Awesome), bows (Quill you Be Mine) and presents (Santa’s Village) and I colored them with Copic markers.
LLAMAS: C1, C3, E00, E02
PINK: R00, R20, R22
ORANGE: YR00, YR04, YR07
YELLOW: Y11, Y15
I added highlights with a white gel pens and I die cut the llamas with their coordinating dies and fussy cut all the tiny images, then I placed all the critters on the ink blended background using foam squares and added all the colored accessories in the matching area of the card (I used glue for this).
Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder on black cardstock, trimmed it down and add it to the card using foam squares.
I hope you liked my card and see you soon with another project.
