Your Next Stamp June Fave Blog Hop Card Video

Hello fellow card makers.

Today is the June Faves Blog Hop with Your Next Stamp. We were told to use our favorite Your Next Stamp products to create our hop projects. I can not pick a favorite. To go along with the theme of the hop, I picked one of my favorites from the last release. I used the NEW Beach Day die set. This set is fantastic. I have used it a bunch and on different styles of cards. It is a very fun, very versatile die set. It is perfect for summer.

Your Next Stamp is having a crazy good sale June 9-12. Check out the info graphic above with the details. Make sure you hop along with us and comment along the way for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp online store.

I started with a piece of Neenah 110 lb cardstock. I took the MFT mini cloud stencil and some Distress Oxide Ink in Salty Ocean and ink blended some clouds for my background. I also took that same ink blended panel and sprayed it with Hero Arts Iridescent Shimmer spray to make it very shiny. To complete the background I cut it down with my favorite Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die (second from largest).

For the front panel, I also took a piece of Neenah 110 lb cardstock and cut it down with the same stitched rectangle. I also used the MFT Porthole die to cut out the porthole aperture. I cut out several of these portholes from the same Neenah cardstock, including one from Neenah 80 lb Desert Storm cardstock. I adhered them all together using Lawn Fawn Glue Tube adhesive. I used the NEW Wave Panel Die from Your Next Stamp and embossed it into the front panel using my Sizzix Big Shot.

I then used the NEW Beach Day die set from Your Next Stamp to cut out the palm tree also from Neenah 110 lb cardstock. I used some Copic Markers to color the palm tree.

To put it all together. I added double sided tape to both sides of scrap craft foam that I needed to use up and arranged it double thick behind the front panel. I removed the adhesive backing and stuck it to the ink blended background. I used Stampin' Up! adhesive foam strips to the porthole to give it a bit more dimension and adhered it in the open hole in the card.  I then added Scotch 3M foam adhesive to the back of the palm tree and placed it in the center of the porthole. Now, it appears like you are looking out from the boat onto a peaceful island oasis.

To finish off the porthole, I added Stampin' Up! enamel dots that are sadly no longer available. You could easily use brads for this or Nuvo drops.

I cut the word Hello from a Your Next Stamp Scripty Words die set four times and adhered the layers together using Ranger Multi Medium Matte adhesive. I use blunt tipped syringes sold in my Etsy Shop to get small amounts of precision adhesive onto the delicate word die. Once all the layers were stuck together. I also adhered it to the bottom left of my card front.

Thank you for visiting my blog today. I hope you will comment below for your chance to win a $25 Your Next Stamp Gift Certificate and continue along the hop.
