Welcome to the Three Amigos Blog Hop Challenge for September 2018! This time around we're playing with fun folds! I'm excited because it gave me a push to make a step card ... been wanting to do this for a while using some Gina K Designs stamps I purchased a little while ago and hadn't inked up yet... but I've been dying to 'cause they're so adorable!! Here's how I was inspired:
I fell in love with this Llama Love stamp set the minute I saw it! Coffee, Owls, Unicorns and Llamas... can you have too many?
I could never be an Engineer in any of my lives... lol... I'm not good at figuring out, measuring, putting things together. So I LOVE my Side Step Card die from Our Daily Bread...lol... just run it through my Big Shot and it's cut and scored in all of the right places! All I have to do is figure out which way the folds go... which usually take me a minute! I did have to measure my layers, but I'm pretty close to ordering the die set that cuts the layers too!
I just love the adorable llamas in this Gina K Designs Llama Love set! They are so cute and fluffy. And love the fun accessories too... it was fun to color his blanket in some rustic colors... kind of Fall-ish colors to match the rest of this card AND the challenge over at Stamp TV this month is Autumn Is In The Air and I knew these desert colors would be perfect for that! Stamp TV is a Ning site and you have to join, but you should give it a try if you're not already signed up! I'm also playing along with this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge which is Stamp It On!
I used some cloud/sky paper and landscape dies from CDD and some mountains from my stash to decorate my landscape. Then I colored and cut out my images. I didn't attach them right away though because I wanted to place them in just the right places!
She's a sweety, isn't she? IDK why I decided this one is a she and the other is a he... at least for this card!
I used some cacti dies from CDD, Lil' Inker, and some Marianne Design dies that I got at my LSS for all of my succulents and cacti. And these beautiful flowers are part of the Llama Love set. I colored them in autumn colors as well.
I chose this sentiment from the set and embossed it in white onto a CDD banner cut from the same color as the aloe on the card and flanked it with the larger flower spray from the set. A few sequins and it was finished!
I just love the dimension these Side Step Cards have! You know I love my layers so they give me even more opportunity to pile it on!
