Llama Get This Straight -- Kindred Stamps September Release

by - September 25, 2018

Happy September release Kindred fans! This release is my last as a design team member and this Llama Get This Straight stamp set did not disappoint!
I love anything with a good pun and llama puns are some of my favorite. I love that this little llama is fluffy and a great canvas to use markers, pencils, watercolors etc. I used Copic markers to color him in, focusing on browns for the fur and bright colors for the garland and blanket around him. 
I decided to keep the scene simple and used a full sticky post it note to create the horizon between the sky and the sand that I ink blended onto the card front. I tried to keep it in a circular shape because I didn't feel that I wanted it to span the entire width of the card. 



Another thing I love about this set is that it includes some really great sentiments that can be used on the inside of the card as well. I will admit that I often skip the inside sentiment but the "So llama get this straight" phrase really lends itself well to an inside sentiment to finish it off. On this card I used "It's your birthday" and to that I stamped the garland image stamp and colored it with similar bright colors as I had the front of the card. 


This cute little llama is a perfect canvas to use for coloring practice. I've used Comics to color him in and used bright colors to showcase the rug and garland on him. To create depth and ground him, I used some warm grays to shade in a shadow beneath him.


The tassel garland included in the set is such a versatile stamp. Here I used it stamped across the front of the card  and colored the space above the tassels so that it appeared to be a curtain thats been lifted for our Llama. I added the sentiment "Spit Happens" on a piece of white card stock stamped with Royal Treatment ink by Catherine Pooler to bring out more of the purple throughout the card. 


The entire Kindred Stamps September release will be available Friday, September 28 at 8am PST/11am EST.

  19. This llama is a cute little guy and I love what you did to keep the first card CAS. But, I really love that you thought to make a purple curtain you made from the garland. I don't think "outside of the box" ideas are a learned skill. It is one you have or you don't. You have been blessed with it! I keep waiting, but it just isn't there, so I am thankful to come to blogs like yours and see great card ideas that really inspire me. Thank you so much!
