Your Next Stamp Challenge #2

Yay! It's time for the second Your Next Stamp Challenge! This week our challenge was set by Lana and it's to make a shaped card. I really wanted to use my new Fhiona and Friend Penguin set, so I got out my old Sizzix ornament die and came up with this card:

I stamped the penguin once on white cardstock and once on the polka dot paper. Then I colored the white version with Copics and cut him out. He was popped up with foam boosters onto the polka dot version, which was cut out and layered onto the red scalloped circle.

I used the following Imaginisce papers: Sugar Sprinkles (polka dot), So Beary Merry (red scalloped circle), and Comfy Cozy (snowflake). I cut the top out of silver cardstock and added a bit of silver cord as a "hanger," then finished off the card with some hand stitching, ribbon and buttons. Lastly the sentiment is from The Cat's Pajamas (Deck the Hall set).

We'd love to have you play along with us and we only have one rule for our challenges - you must use a Your Next Stamp image. If you don't have any yet, you can still play! The Halloween digis are available in the store and I can think of some great shaped cards that would go perfectly with them! For the full details about the challenge, please see the YNS Challenge blog. TFL and have a great day!
