Your Next Stamp Layer It Up Card Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am sharing my card for Your Next Stamp. We on the design team and guest designers were challenged to create a project around the theme "layer it up". So I did! My project has many, many layers. To check out what everyone else created and to get even more inspiration (CLICK HERE!) to visit the Your Next Stamp blog.

I started with the brand new Farm Animal Stack die by Your Next Stamp. I was excited to play with this. I new that I wanted to make a shaker card. The die is so thin, I decided to stack a bunch of layers of the die to create the shaker instead of adding thin strips of foam tape. I made it easier on myself by lining a piece of Neenah 110 lb. cardstock with Stick it adhesive. This puts a sticky tape on the back side of my die cuts which makes it easier to put multiple layers together. I cut nine layers of out of the detailed Farm Animal Stack die. Stacking them together was easy with the addition of the stick it adhesive. To see this card being made, look below for a link to my YouTube video I made creating this card.

After stacking all those layers. I added more layers. I cut the top of the shaker piece out of Bazzil white, which is a textured cardstock. I applied the acetate to the back of this top layer and added to my enormous stack. Now that I have lots of demotion for my shaker bits to move around in, I added Pretty Pink Posh, Petunia, Marshmallow, and Daffodil seed beads to color my images and to add that shaker quality sound.

For my background, I used the MFT mini cloud stencil and Versamagic Agean blue ink to stencil some clouds. I felt like the top of this piece was a little dark so I added some PTI vellum clouds with the Puffy cloud border die by Your Next Stamp. I cut arms in the side of this piece and folding around my card to hug it. I used washi tape to secure it on the backside. I also cut hills with the Double Stitched Hills die set also by Your Next Stamp. I cut them out of Bazzill Parakeet textured cardstock. I cut them down with the second to largest Stitched rectangle die by Your Next Stamp.

I stamped my sentiment from the Funny Farm Sentiments stamp set using the Versamagic chalk ink and clear heat embossing it with Hero Arts Clear embossing powder. I adhered the rest of the pieces to my Simon Says Stamp Fog A2 sized top folding card base with double sided adhesive tape. This is a super sticky tape and it does a great job at keeping things in place, including that ultra heavy shaker piece.
