Newton’s Nook – Llama Delivery

Hey crafty friends! I know I’ve been sparse lately and I apologize. I’ve been posting some fun on Instagram and Facebook so be sure you follow me there. Also, if there is something that doesn’t have a blog post and you’d like one, just reach out! I can always write one or answer questions if you wonder a specific color or technique.

Anyway, back to the real point for today’s popping in…super cute Newton’s Nook goodness for Christmas! I’m over on their blog today with some fa-la-la-la-llama delivery to share! I love this guy and just couldn’t have a Christmas season without a card or tag with him on it.

I had a plan in my head from the beginning, so today I started with all of the die cutting. I cut the pine branch, pinecones and bow from the Pines & Holly die set. Then I chose a circle size from the Circle Frames die set to arrange them around to create a wreath. I inked up the kraft circle with the Music Notes stencil before gluing the foliage down.

I stamped and colored the llama from Llama Delivery and used the coordinating die to cut him out. I used liquid glue to adhere him inside the cute wreath. Then I die cut a speech bubble and stamped a sentiment from the same set on it. Now for the background before we adhere all the pieces together.

I took an A2 white panel and blended at an angle cracked pistachio and salvaged patina distress oxide inks. I splattered water on the panel and blotted it dry. Then I splattered black paint and silver watercolor on it for extra texture. I popped my wreath up with foam tape and then added the speech bubble with half liquid glue and half foam squares so it lays flat.

For finishing touches, I added white gel pen highlights to the image and glossy accents to the llama’s nose. Full disclosure, I added white gel pen to the pine cones and hated it. I let it sit over night and hated it more in the morning. That’s okay though. I just die cut two more and glued them right on top. No one will every know!

Remember, it’s only paper and if you don’t like it you can probably fix it or cover it up!
