Hello everyone. Today I have a card and video featuring some Your Next Stamp products. I guest designed for them back in March and was sent so many products, I was so grateful and so I filmed some extra videos to feature these products more and thought I'd post them now. These videos were created months ago when I first received the products, but I still wanted to share.
To begin my card I stamped the little Crocodile from So Happy For You with some black ink and coloured him in with Copic Markers. Once he was coloured, I used the coordinating dies to cut him out.
For my background of my card, I wanted to stamp directly on my card base and ink blend on it today. I first stamped the 'Happy' sentiment from the same stamp set using my MISTI on the card base and then stamped the 'for you' underneath. I used some thin washi tape around all four sides of my card base and then stamped the 'Happy' sentiment onto a full sticky post it note, cut it out with my knife and adhered it over the letters. I then took a ray stencil from Tim Holtz, adhered it down and ink blended over it with three yellow colours of Distress Ink. I pulled off the stencil and washi tape border to reveal the sun rays. I peeled off the masks and coloured in the individual letters with Copic Markers also, in rainbow order. I left out the green, since there wasn't enough room and also the green is one of the most prominent colours used in the card, so it still appears like a rainbow.
Once everything was coloured, I look a piece of watercolour cardstock from Tim Holtz and blended some blue Distress Inks onto it and then flicked it with water and heat dried it. I also used a Impression Obsession waves die to cut the top (although this seems to be discontinued now, so I linked to the Lawn Fawn ones that seem to match the most). I used fun foam behind the panel and adhered it onto my card base, leaving the same amount of white space on the sides and at the bottom.
To finish up my card I adhered down my crocodile with foam tape and adhered some clear gumdrops from Your Next stamp around the image.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed and I'll be back on Friday with another video.
