Your Next Stamp March 2018 Preview Day

Hello fellow card makers.

Today is Preview Day over at Your Next Stamp. I have seen the March release and it is fabulous. I have to say that it is my favorite so far of all the releases I have been blessed to be a part of. I couldn't even pick a favorite from it, but if I had to... I'd have to say tomorrows blog hop card is my favorite. Just wait until tonight 10 pm Est.

As for my preview project, I am using the brand new Puddle of Fun stamp set and some super fun new dies. To see the rest of the previews (CLICK HERE!) to visit the Your Next Stamp blog and check out what the rest of the design team came up with.

I started wit a piece of Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock. I used the My Favorite Things Mini Cloud stencil to ink blend some clouds with Versamagic Aspen Mist ink. This is my favorite ink to use for clouds. It is a soft blue gray. Now for the fun part- I used the brand new Your Next Stamp Raindrops die and blank stencil sheets from The Crafters Workshop to create my own stencil. I used my homemade stencil to ink some rain drops also using Versamagic Aspen Mist ink. After I inked them, I used Nuvo Glimmer paste in Moonstone to add texture and dimension. Not to mention, a ton of sparkle. I cut this panel down using the second to largest Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle die and adhered flat to a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base with tape runner adhesive.

I cut some border clouds that I wanted to be popped up at the top and the bottom of my front panel. I used the Your Next Stamp Puffy Clouds Border die to do this. I also used the same stitched rectangle die to cut down my clouds and to continue the stitching detail throughout the panel. On the bottom border I stamped my sentiment from the new Puddles of Fun stamp set in a rainbow of Distress Oxide inks. I used Candied Apple, Wild Honey, Squeezed Lemonaide, and Faded Jeans. The lower part of the sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Both the top and bottom cloud borders where adhered to my card using Scotch 3M foam tape.

I stamped the adorable chick image wearing boots and looking down into a puddle with Your Next Stamp Black Olive Ink and colored it using my Copic Markers. I also used my Faber Castell Goldfaber colored pencils to add some shading. I used the coordinating dies to cut him out. This die is awesome because it cuts out the space between the chick and the puddle. I popped my image up with Scotch 3M foam tape.

The sun that you see in the upper right corner of my card is the brand new Starburst die set by Your Next Stamp. I cut it from Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise cardstock. and popped it up using foam tape. I think it adds to the sentiment I chose. The combination of rain and sun and the rainbow, I just love how it turned out.
