Our Next Stamp March 2016 Blog Hop

Mar2016-hopbadge-547x329

Hello everyone!!  Yayyy, I love this blog hop featuring new products from Your Next Stamps makes squeal!! LOL!!

This release is super cute!!  Yesterday’s sneak peek was fun.

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Stephanie’s blog and if you’d like to start from the beginning, you can click on over to the linky at the bottom of this post and start at Anita‘s blog.

My favorite set from this release is the Cool Easter Chick stamp set! I showcased that card yesterday during the sneak peek.  If you didn’t see it here it is.

Are you ready for my big reveal?

Take a look at my card:

Happy Birthday to you (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Little Darling Fairy Godmother, Spellbound Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Clarity Stencil Strips, Distress Inks Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw, Old Paper, and Twisted Citron, Recollection Black Cardstock, Recollection White Cardstock, Tombow Extreme Adhesive

This card was super easy to create!  I blended the colors using the stencil then stamped the sentiment three times.  I added the gumdrops for an added finish.  Sometimes we just need really simple cards.

Happy Easter (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Cool Easter Chick, Black Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper, Versafine Onyx Ink, Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing Powder, Prima Confection Watercolor

Here is another simple card but with a little bit more flare.  I did a little watercoloring and then stamped the sentiment right on top of the dried watercoloring. I added some clear embossing powder on top of the stamped sentiment before it dried to give it an extra pop after it was heated set. I added some gumdrops.

Boom!! Done!!

I have a confession:  This Happy Easter card was suppose to be my sneak peek card but I posted my Spring card by mistake.  That was my favorite card, I guess I was super excited about it.  Sorry for the confusion. 

So, what do you think?  I had so much fun creating these cards to inspire all of you and show you the versatility of the stamp sets! Which one of these items are favorite?  I would love to hear from you!

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

This week’s cue card is:

Week 184 - Valentine

Take a look at my card:

Love you (CAS)

Any valentine would love to receive this card. Its super clean and simple.

Its a one layer card that was created with two die cuts and some inking.

I used Your Next Stamp Stripe-tastic Heart Die set to create the heart pattern on the card front.

Then I used my new Clarity Stencils Brushes and Distress Ink Picked Raspberry to add color to the actually card base.

I attached the front card panel with Tombow Extreme Adhesive to the card base creating a one layer card.

To add a sentiment, I used Simon Says Stamp Love You Die to die cut two for added dimension.

To adhered them down, I used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue to adhered them together and down on the card base.

All done!!

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

Striped Thanks

Hello everyone!  I’m here with Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #176: Backgrounds with Embossing Paste.  It’s been a while since I’ve played along with them.  So, I’m glad I had a chance to play today.

Laura Bassen showed us how to use our dies to create stencils so that we could make pretty backgrounds using embossing paste.

I’ve done this before so it was nice to do this technique again.

Here is my card:

Thanks {watercolor}2

Here is how I create my card:

1. I used Papertrey Ink’s Stripes Horizontal Cover Plate to create my stencil.  I just ran the cover plate through my big shot twice for some thickness.

2. One at a time I mixed my distress reinkers with Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste.  I mixed the paste and  Mustard Seed Distress Ink and spread my paste on the top of my stencil thick.  Then I mixed Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and spread it in the middle of the stencil, thick.  The last I mixed Picked Raspberry and spread it on the bottom of my stencil, thick.

3.  I lightly spread the paste upwards from the bottom to mix the colors going up.  Once I removed all of the excess paste, I removed my stencil to reveal the colorful stripes.

4. I set my card panel to the side and die cut my middle Papertrey Ink Circle Scribbles Die out of Stampin’ Up! Vellum.

5. Then I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks out of Basic Black Cardstock.

6. I adhered the vellum scribble to my striped card panel with Glossy Accents.  I added my scripty thanks to the vellum scribble with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

7. I rounded my corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper (which by the way broke today, I’m so sad, I have to buy another one.).

8. The “thanks” looked to plain so I added Glossy Accents for a little shine.

That’s how I created this card!!  Oh by the way, my card size is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 scored at 5-1/2.  My card panel measures 4 x 5-1/4.

So what do you think?  Let me know.
