World Card Making Day ‘09

Happy World Card Making Day! I hope you're enjoying the tons of fun going on at all the various boards and blogs today!

First up, I have a Your Next Stamp card:

FairyFhiona1a
In case you missed it, Your Next Stamp is sponsoring this week's challenge over at The Pink Elephant, which is a recipe challenge: Use something with dots, a punch, and a tag. There's still time to play and two stamp sets up for grabs!!

I used Fairy Fhiona and part of a sentiment from the Happy Days Mermaid set. I stamped Fhiona twice on white cardstock, once on the patterned paper, and once on plain printer paper. I used the printer paper version as a pattern to cut out the wings from Doodlebug sugar coated cardstock (I tried stamping directly on the cardstock but the black lines just didn't look nice at all). I used thick foam tape beneath the wings, curling them slightly so they wouldn't just sit flat. I added an extra set of arms over her pieced dress and an extra head for even more dimension. Here you can see all the layers:

I also threw in some other challenges for good measure: And now for something really fun: one random commenter from today's post will win a prize of 2 free digi images from YNS! Yes, YNS is going to be carrying digis for a limited time! They will be released on October 7 (which is also the first day of our new challenges!), so I hope you'll check them out! To be entered to win, all you have to do is check out the Your Next Stamp store and leave me a comment telling me what your favorite YNS stamp/stamp set is. This giveaway will be open until Oct. 5th at 12 midnight EST and the winners will be announced on the YNS Blog on Oct. 7. Did you catch that I wrote winnerS?
