Jana used handmade watercolor paper for the card front and watercolored with Kuretake Gansai Tambi colors.

"The frog was heat embossed in black and then I colored him with Zig Clean Color markers. I added some white gel pen dots and some Glossy Accents to the eyes."

She finished her card by stamping this fun birthday sentiment inside it!

One of things that is so fun about this card is Jana turned Felix into a girl frog!

"Felicia was stamped in black and colored with Zig Clean Color markers. I added Nuvo drop dots and googly eyes. I popped her up with an action wobbler."

Have you met Lorenzo the Llama?

Lorenzo is one of the adorable critters of Technique Tuesday's Animal House. Lorenzo has big dreams of becoming a world famous comedian. Known by his Animal House pals as the funny guy since he was just a wee llama, he’s never been one short on words. He loves throwing a quick quip out there, along with a little spit on the side. 

The Technique Tuesday Creative Team and friends have been having lots of fun making cards inspired by this g-llama-rous guy, and we thought you might enjoy taking a peek at a few of their projects.

Talk about a fun card! Tenia heat-embossed Santa with gold embossing powder, added a little color and then fussy cut him with her scissors. To make him pop off the card, she used foam tape! Such a neat look!

Ta-da!

Check out those holly leaves! Don't you just love them?! Tenia created a fun grouping by cutting two leaves and three berries and then layering them together. She again used foam tape to make them pop off her card! The sentiment from the Classic Christmas Sentiments stamp set, along with strips of Washi tape, perfectly finish her card off.

We have one final card from Tenia to share with you.

(Enjoy the Magic of the Season by Tenia Nelson. Made with the Classic Christmas Sentiments and Spirit of December clear stamp sets.)

How fun is the that circle! You can achieve a similar look by cutting a circle out of a sticky note, placing the sticky note onto a card and sponging ink onto it. Before you remove the sticky note, stamp images from the Spirit of December stamp set into the open space. Remove the sticky note and you'll have a beautiful stamped circle!

Let's give it up for Tenia for creating these inspiring cards! A big thanks again goes out to Tenia for being our guest!
