Two Llama cards and Mirror Stamping

Hi crafty friends! 
I love all things llama my husband even bought me a stuffed one for Christmas. Llamas have become so popular lately for card, pillows, blankets, and clothes. 

I used the Llama Love set by Sizzix this week. This set was so fun I have two cards to share but I'm sure I will be making many more.

My first card I did a mirror image of the Llama. If you have never tried mirror image stamping it is really easy. I know their are many different ways to do it. The way I do it is just to stamp onto a piece of acetate then I lay the acetate onto my paper and press evenly around the image to press it onto the paper. I had to be careful not to slide the acetate. 

This is my mirror image llama. After I stamped it onto the paper I went over it with a alcohol marker safe pen to crisp up the lines a little bit better.  I did move a little bit and blurred some of the lines a little bit but once it was colored in you can't really notice. I didn't get the blanket very clearly stamped so ended up not drawing in all of the details so it would be a little bit different then the other llama.

I added some Nuvo Drops onto the circles on both llamas for a little added detail.

I stamped the sentiment onto black paper and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. 

My second card was a little more simple I just stamped the I llama llove you sentiment, the llama, and hearts. I colored the llama in. Then I die cut everything out and layered with a mix of solid and pattern cardstock. 

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!
