Your Next Stamp March Blog Hop Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today is the March New Release Blog Hop for Your Next Stamp! I love love love this release. For real guys, this is my favorite release ever. My favorite stamp set of the release is the Silly Monsters Say Cheese stamp set. I always love the monster sets that come out. I also really like the Retro TV die, and the Raindrops die, oh my! lol. If you would like to check out the Your Next Stamp March New Release (CLICK HERE!) It will take you to the New Products page over on the Your Next Stamp Store. There you can see all the goodies.



The blog hop starts on March 10th at 10 EST and will run until March 13th at midnight. Comment on each blog along the hop to enter to win a $25 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp Online Store. The more you comment the more your chances of winning increase, so comment! I know I love to read your comments.

To make things even better, Your Next Stamp has a coupon code that you can use during the hop to receive 20% off of your order. I think that is a very generous coupon code so take advantage during the hop.



I have two projects to show you today. The first is using my favorite set of the release, Silly Monsters Say Cheese. I took a piece of Stampin' Up!s Night of Navy cardstock and the My Favorite Things Radiating Rays stencil and ink blending some Hero Arts Unicorn White pigment ink to create a spotlight effect on my card panel. I used the Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle die (second from largest) to cut down this panel and adhered it to a Simon Says Stamp Fog top folding A2 sized card base. I used double sided adhesive to make sure it stayed up.



I then cut some stars from the Spellbinders Count The Stars set using both Tonic Mirror Card in Polished Gold and Chrome Silver. I cut out three clusters of two stars. I used double sided adhesive to also adhere them to my card.

I wanted to create a shaker card for this project using the brand new Retro TV die. I cut the die out of several times from Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock. I also cut it from Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock. I also cut a piece of acetate to fit behind the tv die to hold the shaker bits. For better explanation of this view the YouTube video linked below that I created while making this card. I adhered the layers of the shaker portion of my card together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte liquid adhesive.



I added Pop! Microbeads to the inside of my shaker tv in both black and white to mimic the effect of static on the tv. As for the back of the shaker. I cut the back out of some wavy lines in the Your Next Stamp Geometric paper pad. I stamped Your A Super... in Versafine Onyx Black ink in the center. I also stamped a star from the same set using Versamark Ink and Gold Heat Embossed it with Hero Arts Gold embossing powder. I adhered it to a slightly larger piece of typing paper and adhered it to the back of the shaker tv using liquid adhesive. Remembering to seal all the Microbeads in and also not allowing any of the typing paper to show. Once my piece was complete, I adhered it to my card base using double sided adhesive.



I stamped my image in Your Next Stamp Black Olive ink and used my Copic Markers and Goldfaber colored pencils to color it in. A list of the markers I used to color the image are listed below on a Copic color map. Once he was colored I used the coordinating dies to cut him out. I used Scotch 3M adhesive to pop him up onto my project.

I also used the #smile stamp from the Silly Monsters Say Cheese stamp set and stamped it on Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock with Versamark ink and used Hero Arts Ultra Fine White embossing powder to emboss it. I cut it down using the smallest stitched rectangle die. I also popped it up on my card using Scotch 3M foam tape.







For my second project today I am using the All Aboard Bouncing Baby stamp set. I started with a piece of Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock. I stamped almost all of the images from the set to create my background. I stamped the images with Versamark ink and used Hero Arts Ultra Fine White embossing powder to emboss them. I cut it down with the second to largest Stitched Rectangle die and adhered it to white craft foam with double sided adhesive. I also used double sided adhesive to stick it to my card base, which happens to be Stampin' Up! Speckled cardstock, that they don't sell anymore. I'm sorry. I used a white colored pencil to fill in some of the shapes in the background.




I stamped my image in Your Next Stamp Black Olive ink and colored with a combination of both Copic markers and Goldfaber colored pencils like I did on the first project. I then used the coordinating dies to cut it out. This set is filled with adorable baby images, but I had to use the one with the balloon.

I stamped my "welcome baby" sentiment on Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock with Versamark ink and used Hero Arts Ultra Fine White embossing powder to heat emboss it. I cut it down using Heffy Doodles Strips of ease dies and cut a flag end with my scissors. I did the same cuts for the patterned paper underneath. I used a combination of double sided tape and Scotch 3M foam tape to adhere it to my project. I finished it off with some green enamel dots from the Carrot Cake Gumdrops also from this release and a heart from Doddlebug's Tiny Heart Sprinkles.
