Your Next Stamp Monkey Fun

Hello everyone, now that Valentine’s Day is over, I wanted to rebuild my stash of birthday cards starting with this
adorable monkey from Your Next Stamp.

To begin my card, I stamped the image of the monkey onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock with Memento
Tuxedo Dye ink and colored the image with Copic markers. Once I finished coloring, I used the ScanNCut to cut the image out.

Copic Markers Combination

Monkey: E49, E27, E25, E23, E31, E30
Monkey Face: E11, E21, E000, E0000
Branch: E29, E27, E23, E31
Leaves: YG17, YG13, YG01

For the background, I created my own stamped pattern with one of the leaf images in the stamp set. Using Versamark ink,
I stamped the image onto a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock and heat set the white embossing powder. I created a
bold background by ink blending Distress ink in Mowed Lawn in the center of an A2 sized panel then added
Twisted Citron at the outer edges covering the entire panel. Of course, I had to add the water splatters and the
white paint for some added interest.

With the second to largest ripped rectangles die, I die cut the center out of the top panel then added foam tape to the frame
before adhering it to a top folding card base. The only thing left to do to complete this card was to create a sentiment,
which I stamped onto a piece of black cardstock and heat set it with white embossing powder. I added the focal
image and a few black enamel dots to finish the card off.

This card was partly inspired by the current Your Next Stamp Challenge # 132: Create Your Own Background. I hope you enjoyed this card and found it inspiring.

Your Next Stamp Frosty Friends | Copic Markers | Christmas Handmade Card

Hi there, today I’m sharing a Christmas inspired card featuring Your Next Stamps’ Frosty Friends stamp for a sweet and shiny card.

Your Next Stamp Frosty Friends stamped image colored with Copic Markers set against an ink blended background for a sparkly Christmas handmade card.

For this card, I started by ink blending a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock with Seedless Preserve Distress Ink with a blender brush.
I added several layers of color to build up a bold background. Once the background was dry, I stamped the snowflakes
randomly on the background with Versamark ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder.

I only used one image from the stamp set which I stamped onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock with Memento
Tuxedo ink and used Copic markers to color in the image. I then used my ScanNCut to cut the image out.

Copic Markers Combination

Teal: BG49, BG45, BG53, BG10
White: C3, C1, C00, Blender, R22
Flower: RV69, RV55, RV00

I die cut a piece of white cardstock with Stitched Hillside Borders by Lawn Fawn then added some fine glitter by Lawn Fawn
on the hill to represent some shiny and sparkly snow.
I adhered the largest panel with fun foam to a white card base, then added the snowbank and my image.

Your Next Stamp Love and Smiles ~ Copic colored ~ Valentine’s Day card

Hello everyone,

Today I’m sharing a card I made that was inspired by YNS’ Sketch and Color Challenge # 82 using the Love and Smiles stamp set perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Your Next Stamp Love and Smiles stamp set colored with Copic Markers and pattered paper backgrounds Valentine’s Day handmade card.

I started by stamping my main image with Memento Tuxedo black ink onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock and Copic colored the image.

Color combination I used:
Bunny: RV66, RV63 and V01
Balloons: R39, R29 and R27

Your Next Stamp Love and Smiles stamp set colored with Copic Markers and pattered paper backgrounds Valentine’s Day handmade card.

My card is based on the sketch design with the layers slightly altered. I used a piece of purple pattern paper from the DCWV Bright Patterns cardstock paper pad and cut it using the largest ripped rectangle die set. I adhered that piece on top of pink glitzy strip of cardstock from the DCWV Glitzy cardstock paper pad and added the main focal point of the bunny using some foam tape, the sentiment and a few glittery enamel dots to complete this card.

This was such an easy and fun card to create perfect for that last Valentine gift!

That’s all for me today, thanks for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
