Hi friends !
Today is my last day as guest for Your Next Stamp. Time flies by super fast when you were busy having fun. It had been a wonderful time for me and I am very happy and thankful for this opportunity. YNS team - you will be missed ! 😊
Today I am up on their blog for their color and sketch challenge #60. You still have a week to join in the fun and a chance to win gift certificate to shop at YNS store. I will love to see your creations ! If you need more inspirations, be sure to head down to their blog and you will find many fabulous projects done by YNS design team and guests.
Meanwhile, let's take a look at their awesome color palette and sketch layout.
My card today features a combination of YNS Stacked with Fun stamp set, All Aboard train carts and Little ledges die set. I love these cute faces and they also remind me of circus animals.
To start off, I stamped all the images using Memento Tuxedo black ink onto a white card stock and colored them using distress markers. These were fuzzy cut using scissors.
For the card panel, I stenciled red stripes across the card using mama elephant red apple pigment ink. To give the panel a dimensional look, I embossed it using the next level 3D embossing folder - stripes from We R memory keepers.
Following the sketch, I used YNS Stitched square die to cut our a square frame and window using pattern papers in my stash. I also die cut a scallop ledge and rectangle with circle piece using YNS Little Ledges die set. For the sentiment, I stamped onto white card stock and trim it down into a banner strip with fish tail.
To assemble the card, I first adhered the background panel onto a top folding horizontal card base. Next, I used foam tape to stick down the yellow frame followed by the dark brown inner square piece. I then glued down the ledges followed by the grass and flowers patches and stacked on the animals using foam tape. To finish off the card, I adhered the sentiment banner and added glossy accents to the lion's and monkey's nose and the elephant's and donkey's hooves.
Thank you all for stopping by. Have a fun and wild day !
