What Would Kelly Make: Llama Tell you

 Hello Crafters! 

Halfway way through the week folks. This is normally cause for celebration in my house but it's even more exciting because this weekend I get to see my crafty girlfriends!! 
Oh man, I cannot wait!! 

I'm stopping in today because the next video in the What Would Kelly Make? series is up on the Simon Says Stamp Blog today. 
We are using some adorable stamps to talk about perspective., specifically perspective when stamping a scene. 

You can see both the technique video and the way the full card came to life over at the Simon Says Stamp Blog. 
I have one or two things scheduled for you this week still so stay tuned! 

Thanks for dropping by!

Alright let's get to what you came for, the actual card

When I was on the team one of the things I specialized in was stretching my stamps. I thought it would be fun to take that approach for my anniversary card. 

I used two sets to create a completely different floral card. It never gets old for me :) 

You can see the whole card in the video below

I think those succulents made themselves into beautiful blooms, what do you think? 
I'm so psyched we are heading into Spring! There will be lots more flowers on the blog coming soon!

Your next stop on the hop is my amazing friend Lisa Stein. I saw a sneak peek of her project and you're going to love it! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
