For this card, I am featuring my new “Sending A Llama Love” Stamp Set and the Mirror Stamping and Die Cutting Technique.

I learned this technique from Jennifer McGuire. Here is a link to watch the tutorial. I won’t even try to explain it myself; she will do a much better job LOL.
I stamped both of my llamas on Canson Watercolor Paper in Gina’s new Amalgam Ink. This has become my absolute favorite Ink. It is compatible with watercolors, alcohol markers, and colored pencils with gamsol. It is literally one ink that does it all!
I die cut both of the llamas (see Jennifer’s video on how I die cut the mirror image), and then watercolored them with my Prima Marketing Watercolor Pan Sets. I wanted them to look somewhat fluffy, so I dabbed my brush on the paper multiple times in various colors to get the fluffy, textured look.
I stuck both llamas on Kraft cardstock using some foam squares to give the card dimension. I then die cut a small heart from a set of Lawn Fawn dies and adhered it in between the llamas. It makes them look like they’re kissing! 😍 I stamped some of the jewelry and accessories that I drew in my set, and dressed up the cute little llamas.
I took a ruler and drew some lines in a black Micron pen to add more detail to the card. I added a cutesy greeting and the card was done!

For this next card, I used my “Stuck On You” Stamp Set. I stamped my images in Amalgam Ink on Canson watercolor paper, and colored them with Prima Marketing Watercolors. The pink really makes the green pop! 😍
