Your Next Stamp March Feature Day "Sweet Treats".

Hello fellow card makers.

Today I am sharing my project for Your Next Stamp March Feature Day. This month's theme is "Sweet Treats". (CLICK HERE!) to head over to the Your Next Stamp blog to check out what everyone else on the Design Team has created. While you are there, don't forget to leave a comment by March 25th for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice.

I am using the brand new Humming By stamp set and coordinating dies for my card today. I started with a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base. If you have been with me for any length of time, you will know that this is my regular card base. I took a piece of Strathmore Bristol smooth white cardstock and ink blending a group of clouds in the upper right hand corner using Versamagic ink in the color Aspen Mist. I used the YNS Stitched Rectangles die (second from largest) to cut down the panel. I adhered some white craft foam to the back with double sided adhesive and centered it onto my card base.

I stamped my image in Your Next Stamp Black Olive ink onto Neenah 110 lb. cardstock and colored it with Copic markers. I have a Copic color map showing which markers I used to color the image, you can even Pin to Pinterest if you would like. I used the coordinating dies to cut it out. I wanted to use part of one of the stamps from the Humming By... stamp set. It reads "happiness is" because I masked the sweet as to not stamp that part of the sentiment. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink and I used Hero Arts Ultra Fine White embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment onto Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock. I used Heffy Doodle's Strips of Ease dies to cut it down.

I used the YNS Fancy Sweet word die to finish off my sentiment. I cut it from Neenah 110 lb cardstock a total of four times and adhered the layers together with liquid adhesive. I sponged a little of the VersaMagic ink that I used for the clouds around the bottom of the sentiment. I adhered the black sentiment strip with Scotch 3M foam tape as well as the humming bird. I used liquid adhesive to adhere the "sweet" word die cut.
