YNS Challenge #81


Happy Friday everyone... It's time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp! This week we have another great Sketch and Color Combo to choose from or you can mix them up together. 


I choose the color combo this week and used Gray, Green, and Pink in my project. I die cut a piece of pattern paper from my stash using the Stitched Scallop Rectangle Die set. Then I stamped some images from the Little Darlings Frog Princess stamp set directly on the pattern paper. Then I adhered the panel to a top folding A2 size card base. I stamped the same image again onto some watercolor paper and die cut part of the image with the Circle and Stitched Circle die sets. Then I colored the image in with Distress Inks and a Waterbrush. 


I added some Nuvo drops to parts of the image and adhered it over the image stamped onto the pattern paper with some foam tape. This technique is called Spotlighting. You can do it with a die, punch or just coloring part of an image directly. 



Head over to the YNS Blog for more inspiration from the Team and Join in the Fun. The Challenge is open until Feb. 1st and we have a $15 GC up for grabs. If you use any YNS images on your project you can Win a little extra!! 

Thanks for stopping by!!

NND January Sneaks Day 4!!



Happy Thursday everyone... It's our final day of sneaks from the January release. And all the products we've featured will be available tomorrow in the store

Today we are sharing an Adorable new Newton set called Newton's Sweetheart and it's coordinating dies. This set reminds me of the Aristocats movie. I'm showing my age.. Ha Ha even though it was released before I was born it was a Favorite of mine when I was little. I colored up the images to resemble Dutchess and O'Malley. 


I started by adding some Glimmer Paste to a piece of Watercolor paper with the new Falling hearts stencil. I like to use the watercolor paper when I'm using a lot of this stuff because it keeps holds shape better as it drys. 


This was a very glittery card..lol I trimmed a 1/4" off the edges and adhered the panel to a Black card base once with was dry. Then I stamped the cat images onto a piece of X-Press it blending cardstock and colored it in with Copics. I used the coordinating die to cut it out. I die cut a heart from the Darlings Hearts Die set and stamped the paw print from Newton's Sweetheart set in Black ink and colored in with a Black Copic and added some shadows. I adhered that to the panel and added a sentiment banner and then the kitty image. I added a little Clear glitter Nuvo drops to the center of the collars. 


Check out the other cute images in this set....

NND January Sneaks Day 3!



It's Day three of the Newton's Nook January Release Sneaks and today we are sharing an Adorable new set called... Deer Friend and it's coordinating dies. 


I love the images in this set and the sentiment are just as cute as the images!! I started by die-cutting a piece of pattern paper using the Frames and Flags Die set. Then I adhered the panel to a Black top folding card base. I stamped the sentiment onto some Black card stock and embossed it in White. Then I die cut the piece with the banner in the Frames and Flags Die set as well. I adhered it in the corner with some foam tape. 


I stamped a line of trees from the Whispering Pines stamp set using two shades of Green ink onto White card stock. Then I used a B Copic marker to add a sky, leaving the ground white like snow. Then I added a Black scalloped Circle frame and adhered it to the card front with foam tape. I stamped the Deer image onto some X-press it blending cardstock and colored her in with Copics. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut it out and adhered it inside the circle with some foam tape. I added a little shadow with a C00 Copic marker where she is standing.
