Today I went with an animal theme. There are so many cute new animal dies, and I have enjoyed seeing what the other designers do with them.
For my first card, I used the new Llama die paired with the new Stitched Tag die. The Stitched tag comes with the tag die as well as the banner die to go on it. I cut out the scarf of the llama using felt to give it a bit of fuzziness and added a sentiment from the Llama Love clear stamp set.
For my background, I created it using the Wooden Plank Cover a Card in Baby Blue ink and added the Watercolor Dots stamp in Sky Blue and Navy ink (I rotated the stamp so that the dots wouldn't overlap each other). Those three Impression Obsession inks are a light, medium and dark color that are meant to coordinate with each other. I really like making my own backgrounds using the various ink trios.
As a finishing touch, I added some navy twine and my sentiment.
For my second card, I just had to use this really cute frog die. I absolutely love him. He just so happy. It amused me so much that the die even comes with the speckles/warts to use for decorating him. I also used the new Whimsical Scalloped Tag die as well as one of the banners from the Pinked Stitched Banner set.
The background was created by using two vastly different Cover a Card patterns. One was the Grid Cover a Card and one was the Rose Leaves Cover a Card. Sometimes I love to grab two patterns that are really different from each other and see what happens when they are combined.
