Sometimes silly little things bother me. For example, this sentiment from the Fa-la-la Friends stamp set says Fa-la-la-la-llama. Cute, right? But the song has more syllables than that! Scroll down for a simple way to add the missing Las.
Here’s what I made:
These two cards are the same except for the two layers of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the card stock layer underneath.
Here’s how I did it:
The song has nine syllables. The stamp has six, so we need three more. The stamp has three (La-La-La) in the middle, so you just need to stamp those twice. Here’s how:
First ink up “Fa-La-La-La-” and leave “Llama” clean. Stamp the image, then clean and dry the stamp. Next ink up “-La-La-La-Llama.” Line it up with the first image and stamp. The see-through photopolymer stamp makes lining it up a breeze, but you could also use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to get it straight. For these cards, I stamped the sentiment in Memento Black ink onto Whisper White CS (card stock) then cut it out with a die from the Project Life Cards & Labels Framelits.
Both card bases are Cherry Cobbler CS. The one on the left has a Whisper White CS layer, and the right one has a Basic Black CS layer. The next two layers on both cards are different patterns from the Warmth & Cheer DSP (Designer Series Paper) Stack.
The cacti are cut from Garden Green CS with a die from the Fiesta Time Framelits. I used a Sponge Dauber to ink the edges in Garden Green ink.
I stamped the llamas from the Fa-la-la-la Friends stamp set in Memento Black ink onto Crumb Cake CS and cut them out with another die from the Fiesta Time Framelits. I used Stampin’ Write Markers in Cucumber Crush, Real Read, and Pacific Point to color in the lights.
I tied a piece of Real Red Solid Baker’s Twine around each llama’s neck. I attached a cactus and a llama to each card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then tied the other end of the twine around the cactus.
The final touch was to attach the sentiment with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
