So Sweets!

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Yay! I have another Your Next Stamp Challenge today! This time our hostess is Kerri and she challenged us to use "Bold, bright Summery colours."

Here's my card:

One of the boldest, brightest paper pads I have is this one from K&Co. I thought the papers went perfectly with the candy images from Hula Hoop Fhiona. I paper pieced the 3 candies with 3 different patterns and cut them out, popping them up with punches of scrap cardstock. I also did a tiny bit of coloring on them with Copics and a white colored pencil. I glittered all the edges of the focal panel and popped it up with foam boosters, then did a straight stitch 2 times around the patterned paper.

The sketch is from Get Sketchy. I wrapped pink and green Timeless Twine around the card and placed a bow where the sentiment was supposed to be (my sentiment just wouldn't fit there!). I then placed my sentiment at the bottom. It's from the Ellie's Berry Basket set.

Other challenges: 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, the challenge hostess will choose her 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!
