O.k. – does this silly guy just make a smile come to your face! 🙂 There is just something about his expression that cracks me up! He looks like he just wants to say, HELLO – what’s your name….my name is Llama, Mr. Llama but you can just call me Llama!
I am super excited for this 2 day post for you all….but you need to pop back tomorrow to see something that will really make you smile….probably – BURST out laughing….so I warn you, no coffee in your mouth when you click on my blog tomorrow!
The ideas are ENDLESS for this simple card! Because this comes as a bundle it means 2 things:
- You will save an instant 10%
- It has framelits….so just crank Mr. Llama through Mr. Big Shot and PRESTO – he is a hunk!
Today I chose to use the DSP, Festive Birthday which actually is shown with this bundle on page 11in the Annual Catalog. The little bit of “paper piecing” I did was super simple. I stamped the blanket for Mr. Llama and then cut it out (the great thing is….the fringe is already on Llama so all you have to do is “green glue” the rectangle) and then for the festive banner, a simple snip in 2 areas to again, green glue down!
Let’s chat about the sentiment! I am not a huge fan of inking up with markers the area that you want to stamp (but trust me, there are times that YOU JUST HAVE TO DO THAT) but for today I just masked off the words that I did not want expose….STAMPED…and then reversed it to get the next color. I find using a very “low tack” masking tape works great! (you can buy that in the painting section of Lowes/Home Depot etc…)
To give “Mr. Llama” some ground, a quick swish of the aqua painter and Sahara Sand is all that was needed – super fast, super easy…..super effective!
If you received this…You would first LOVE the festive envelope but then when you slid “Mr. Llama” out – you would cherish it! I think he looks quite handsome with his dapper envelope!
Here is your 411, Directory Assistance photo for you to pin! (do you remember when we used 411 all of the time to get a phone number…..way before computers!!!!) 😀
I am just LOVIN’ that so many of you are being smart stampers and taking advantage of the limited edition Thoughtful Branches Stamp Bundle that I have been showcasing a bunch! Many thanks for your kind comments yesterday…and I will say, even though it is a limited edition, it is a classic that you will use for years to come!
I can’t wait to see you tomorrow….I hope that I am right that you are going to smile – LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!!!
