Your Next Stamp August Release and Blog Hop
Yay! It's time for the Your Next Stamp August Release and Blog Hop! There are LOTS of fabulous new products and you can check them all out HERE. I absolutely LOVE the NEW Jessica's Kitten set but have also seen a sneak peek of a new rock band set that I plan to order too! This time, there are stamps, dies AND paper being released. Woo hoo!
For my first project, I created a card using the NEW Cute Home set. I love the fun house in this set! I coloured it in and added some detail to make it look like it's got wood siding and a brick chimney. I used the NEW coordinating Cute Home dies to cut out the image.
I watercoloured the background and added some tone-on-tone clouds using a stamp from the NEW Cute Home set. The tree and flowers are from the set too. The black stripes were stamped using Your Next Stamp's Stripe-Tastic Edge stamp.
For my second project, I used my planner to create a layout. For the most part, I used stamps from the NEW Rec and Leisure Planning set, although I also added stamps from Plan to Be Fit (bottom of each day) and a "SMILE" sentiment from School Notes. There is such a fabulous variety of images and words in the NEW Rec and Leisure Planning set. Something for everyone!
For my final project, I created a card using the NEW Jessica's Kitten stamp set. I also used the NEW Mini Letters and Numbers set to create the "MEOW" sentiment. I stamped the images and letters with Versamark and then heat-embossed them with white embossing powder before water colouring everything. The patterned paper either side of my main panel are from the NEW Swirly Fun paper pack too!
