YNS Feature Day

Hello, everyone! And happy spring! I’m back today with a card for Your Next Stamp’s feature day. Today’s theme is “laughter is the best medicine,” and I came up with a card that made me laugh.
026This card was pretty simple to make. I started by masking and ink blending Distress Ink. When those were finished I splattered the panel  with water to add splotches. I also added white paint splatters.

031

Next I die cut the scalloped circle from the Little Peek a Boo Doors Dies. I added foam tape and lots of white, gold and silver sequins. I stamped the horse from the Stacked with Fun and colored him in with my Copics. I die cut him out using the coordinating dies and attached him over my shaker window. To finish the sentiment I stamped the words ‘hay girl’ with VersaMark on black paper. I used the Mini Letters and Numbers stamp set for this. I attached them to the card panel with some foam tape. And that finished my card!

I hope you enjoyed the card for Your Next Stamp’s feature day. Head over to their blog to see all the projects the design team made! Thank you for stopping by 🙂 See you again soon!

Your Next Stamp Challenge!

It’s challenge time over at Your Next Stamp, and this week I was inspired by the sketch challenge that was created. Here’s a look at it.

YNSSketch59

I used some of the new release products to make a cute little scene of a stack of monkeys. I really love the way this card turned out!

020

I colored the monkeys from the Stacked With Fun set with my Copics and die cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I created some Distress Ink background pieces with some Bristol Smooth card stock. I went with earth tones to make it look like a jungle.

053

I heat embossed my sentiment on the bottom panel with white embossing powder and added a darker green strip to the lower third of the panel. Then I used foam tape to adhere the monkeys in a pyramid on the card. I added a cute speech bubble at the top and used Glossy Accents to make it shine. I also added some white gel dot details and that was it for my card!

I hope you liked my project for the challenge! Be sure to go over to the Your Next Stamp blog and check out the other projects as well as the challenges to try your hand at them! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

DT Dare Time!

Good morning! I’m back today with a card for the Your Next Stamp Design Team Dare! Today’s theme is shades of spring. It’s tough to think of spring since just yesterday it was snowing and so very windy, but it gives me something to look forward to! Here’s a look at my card…

132

I stamped a bunch of the peep bunches from the All Aboard Bunch of Happiness stamp set on some Neenah Solar White  card stock and colored them in with my Copics. I used light pastel colors, because that’s what I think of when I think of spring. Real peeps usually tend to be a bit brighter than this, but I thought it looked ok for this project. Once they were all colored I cut them out with the coordinating die set. I also die cut the larger circle from the Stitched Circle Frame die set from the same paper.

133

I layered all the peeps behind the circle, gluing them to the edges as I went. I cut down some gray card stock and heat embossed a sentiment from the stamp set on the lower bottom of it in white embossing powder. Then I attached the circle to the gray card stock and the gray piece to a card base. That pretty much finished off my card!

I hope you enjoyed my take on shades of spring! Be sure to head over to the YNS blog and see all the fun projects the Design Team came up with. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you’re having a great Wednesday!
