Your Next Stamp Challenge #9

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Yay! I have another Your Next Stamp Challenge today! It's my turn to host and I would like for you to use a charm on your project. It can be store bought or handmade if you like!

Here's what I came up with:

All the stamps are from the Happy Birthday Mermaid set. I stamped the mermaid twice on cardstock, colored with Copics and cut out one completely, and then just the face with bangs, seashells and tail of the other. The extra head was mounted with foam boosters and the shells and tail were mounted with bits of scrap cardstock for just a little dimension. Then the entire mermaid was mounted with foam boosters. The little heart in her hair is also from the set.

The turtle was also stamped twice and colored with Copics. I added an extra bottom of the shell with scrap cardstock then mounted the whole thing with foam boosters. The hearts were both cut out from the patterned paper (an old Valentine's line from Scenic Route) and the sweet sketch is from A Spoon Full of Sugar.

This card also qualifies for the Creative Card Crew (Valentine's) and Papertake Weekly ("Love Actually").

We hope you'll play along with us! One lucky participant will be drawn at random to win $10 in YNS Stamp Bucks!! You don't have to use YNS images on your card, but if you do you'll get a double entry in the draw!

Also, I will be choosing my favorite card, and that winner will get the YNS Challenge "Top Pick" blinkie to proudly display on their blog PLUS $5 in YNS Stamp Bucks! You must use a YNS image to be eligible to be chosen for Top Pick.

Full details can be found at the YNS Challenge Blog. TFL!
