Your Next Stamp Challenge #37

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Yay! I have another Your Next Stamp Challenge today! This time our theme is "Feeling Blue" - use the color blue anywhere on your creation. Here's what I came up with:

I used my old fave Yippee Fhiona and a sketch from Friday Sketchers. I just got some gorgeous new twine from Trendy Twine and had to use it right away. So going with our blue theme, I matched some light and dark blue Bazzill cardstock to the colors in the Blue Berry twine and went with a monochromatic card.

If you look closely, you'll see that the light blue cardstock is embossed with the Cuttlebug Argyle folder to match the design on her shirt. To finish the whole thing off, I used the Martha Loops punch on the dark cardstock, did some straight machine stitching, and added a sentiment from the Mini Greetings set.

This card is also for:
  • Stampin' for the Weekend - Monochrome
  • Top Tip Tuesday - fave technique and/or embellishment (my fave technique is fussy cutting images and popping them up on foam boosters)
  • Papertake Weekly - Anything goes, and optional something old (everything on this card, except the twine, is pretty old!)
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!
