Are you ready for some projects? I had so much fun creating with these adorable goodies!

My first card uses the cutest llama set called You're Llamazing (haha!) I had fun coloring these cute llamas and cactus with Copics.

After coloring these cuties, I had to create a colorful background for them. I sponged some Oxide inks onto a panel of watercolor paper. The Oxide inks blend so well, and even better when you blend them on watercolor paper. After the blending was done, I added some mountains in the background by painting with purple watercolor.

The fun sentiment is also included in the set. I heat embossed it onto my finished background. I couldn't resits tying a little balloon to the llama using a new die set called Confetti Mat.

While my first card was fun as fun can be, this second one takes on a totally different look. I used the new Orchid set to do some no-line watercoloring.

I used the wet-on-wet technique to add the pretty mix of blues and purples to the flower petals. I used the same technique on the pot to give it lots of texture. I also used a brown pen to add even texture to the pot by adding a few dots.

The oval Quilted Mat die is also new, as is the pretty "thinking of you" sentiment.

I had so much fun with my last card! This adorable giant Cotton Candy die is so perfect for wet-on-wet watercolor. It's a large, open shape, so you can really have fun blending different colors. When I was finished painting it, I heat embossed a sentiment from the set in white powder.

I gave this giant cotton candy to this sweet little mouse. Isn't he just the cutest? Ack! He's from the new Peek-a-Boo Pets set. He's peeking out from the new Ray die.

I finished it off with a few sequins for some shine. So fun!
