My first project was made using Your Next Stamp Boom! stamp set and coordinating dies. I cut some letters (L, V, and E) out of Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler cardstock using my Brother Scan and Cut and adhered several layers together to add dimension. I then stamped the bomb image using Memento Tuxedo black and colored him with my Copic markers. My intention was to create the word love with the bomb image as the "O". I used the second-largest rectangle from the Stitched rectangle die set from Your Next Stamp as my front panel and placed it on some craft foam using 1/2 inch Scor Tape. I popped it all onto a standard top folding A2 sized card base made from Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock. On the inside I stamped a coordinating greeting.







My second project for the hop is made from Your Next Stamp's Cat Nap stamp set. It too is being re-released along with many others. I wanted to play with my Prismacolor colored pencils a bit, so I sharpened them up and put them to work. I stamped the cat image on a Toned Grey paper by Strathmore with Ranger Archival black ink. This is my go-to ink when I use my colored pencils. I used a thought bubble from Spellbinders Page Maps, Say What? die set to create a shaker thought bubble for my cat's dream. I stamped and colored the fish image from the same stamp set. I used craft foam to create the shaker well and filled it with Mini Prills like I have on many projects before this. To finish it off, I white heat embossed my sentiment and cut it out using the Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangles die set.
