Your Next Stamp Challenge #16

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Yay! I have another Your Next Stamp Challenge today and I'm your host! One of my favorite things to do when stamping is to cut images out and pop them up with foam boosters or scrap cardstock: either the whole image, or just some parts, or both! So for this challenge, I'd like for you to "cut it out and pop it up!"

Here's my card:

I used Yippee Fhiona and a sketch from Sketchy Thursday. I paper pieced Fhiona's pants, shirt, headband and the flower on her headband, and also gave her an extra head and arms for dimension. You can see it a little better in this close shot:

I popped up the extra arms and the flower on the headband with scrap cardstock punches because I didn't want too much height, then I popped up the extra head with a foam booster. Finally, the entire Fhiona was cut out and popped up on more foam boosters. The sentiment is from the Mini Greetings set.

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 choose 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!
