Hello Crafty Friends!
I'm back with my good friends at DCWV today! I am absolutely giddy about all their new paper lines that have been filling the shelves of Joann Craft store across the U.S! They have really out done themselves with this release! And I am head over heals in love and tickled over their new NO PROB LLAMA STACK!!!
This stack is full with bold color and tons of foil!
Lots & lots of cacti and lla-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-mas!!!!
I am so in love with this stack that I immediately had to create something with it! So I decided to make a easel style card.
No Prob Llama Stack (DCWV)
Stephanie Barnard's Circle Stand-Ups Card (Sizzix)
Border Die- Stephanie Barnard's Elegant Stand-Ups (Sizzix)
Stephanie Barnard's Succulents & SucculentsTWO Dies (Stamps of Life)
Mega Runner (Xyron)
Distress Inks- Weathered Wood, Antiqued Linen, & Seedless Preserves (Tim Holtz/ Ranger)
3D Dots (Ek Success)
First, I cut my paper down to 6"x 12" pieces so that it can fit into my die-cut machine. Then I die-cut the card base and mat pieces from coordinating patterned paper.
I used my mini blending tool and inked the edges of my die-cut pieces.
I used my Xyron Mega Runner to adhere my panels onto my card base.
Then, folded my my card base on the score lines.
I added foam adhesive to the back of my circle die-cut and set it to the side.
I die cut cacti from green striped paper using the prickly cacti from my succulents and succulentsTWO die sets.
I found a sheet of cut-outs from the No Prob Llamas Stack and filled with different lamas, cacti, journaling tags, and sentiments. I found a tag with this cute lama and sentiment. I cut it out and separated the sentiment.
I kept the foiled cacti attached to the llamas, added tiny glitter enamel dots to my sentiment, then added foam adhesive to the back of both.
I attached all my element to my card front. Placed the circle in the center, layered the ferns on top that, then the llama in front of those. Added a cactus to each side and my sentiment in the bottom center. It created the most adorable desert landscape!
I finished the bottom flap with a simple border from the Elegant Stand-Ups die set.
Final here is my finished card...
This card is full of dimension!! I pulled some of the ferns forward so they stem and leaves are growing from behind the llama, as if he was standing under a shrub.
All the dimension and the foiled accents really makes the card pop!!
This was such a fun card and I can definitely see myself making tons and tons of llama themed everythings!!
I hope you all enjoyed my project for the day!
Until next time...
