Summer Fun with Your Next Stamp!!

Hello everyone!!  Its Feature Week on the YNS blog this week and the theme is Summer Fun!!  I LOVE the summer!!  It is the best time of the year for me.  The weather is fantastic and I get to stay outside and grill!!  Perfect for me!!

This week the Design Team has been challenged to create a project that is all about summer fun.  I wanted to used the Zero Calories stamp but wasn’t sure what to do.  As I was sitting at my desk, a new youtube video popped up in my cue and it was Nichol sharing how she created a watercolor card using a set of popsicles.  I couldn’t believe it.   I watched it and said yes, she gave me an idea.

Take a look:

Happy Hugs (YNS)

Inside of creating a card, I decided to create a postcard that could go right in the mail.  I too decided to watercolor my popsicles. I used Tombow Dual Brush Markers Primary and Brights to watercolor.  I’ve never used them in this way before so this was fun.

I simple stamped the images with Versamark ink and covered them with Clearsnap Colorbox® white embossing powder.

Then I heat set it.

After that was set, I used Tombow’s Dual Brush Markers to watercolor the popsicles.

Then I let the postcard air dried before attaching the happy die cut.  I adhered that die cut with liquid glue.

Then I realized I didn’t watercolor the sticks, so I went back in and watercolored around the die cut.

I added the gumdrops and that was that.

This postcard is on it way to a friend.  I hope she likes it.

What do you think? Would you give this technique a try? I would love to hear from you below.

I’m all entering Virginia’s View Challenge!

{Clean and Simple} CASology 199 – Fast

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 199 - Fast

Take a look at my card:

clean and simple

Bee’s move super fast at times, so I thought this image was perfect for this week’s cue card. I used My Favorite Things Fly-By Friends for my images and sentiment.

Here is how I created this card:

  1. Cardstock is cut to 4.25 by 5.50 scored at 5.50.
  2. Stamp the images and sentiment using the Mini Misti tool using My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Ink.
  3. Then use Tombow IroJiten Vivid Adult Coloring Set to color the bee in.
  4. To add a finish, add one single embellishment.  The one I used is a sneak at a new release Gumdrop from Your Next Stamp.

Super easy, clean and simple!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Your Next Stamp April 2016 Sneak Peek

Hello everyone!!! I’m back again for this month’s Your Next Stamp Sneak Peek!!

We are getting ready for our April Release Blog Hop tomorrow with a sneak peek today. Are you excited? I am!!

Take a look at my card that I’m giving you a sneak peek of:

Just a little something (YNS)

YNS Supplies: From My Garden, Crystal Clear Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Recollection Heavyweight White Cardstock, Copic Markers, We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, Mini Misti

This was a super simple card to create.

I scored the cardstock with three lines.

Then I used the Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment and the basket on a separate piece of cardstock.

I used Copic markers to color in the image.

Then I adhered the basket to the card front in between the sentiment.

I added three gumdrops for the a finishing touch.

Nice and easy!

I hope I see all of you tomorrow for the April 2016 Release Hop.
