Hello! Welcome to the Your Next Stamp January New Release Blog Hop! If you came here by way of Julie's Blog, then you’re on the right track. However, if you just happened across my blog, you’ll want to go back to the start at Thanh's Blog because you won’t want to miss a stop!
We are so excited about the hop today because this release is HUGE! We have had a blast playing with all of the cuteness, and we know you will too! We are also introducing another new illustrator to the YNS family~Angie Blom! I think we all fell in love with her new Insta Love Set which totally rocks!
We have 3 prizes hidden along the hop! Just make sure you leave a comment on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win an amazing new release prize pack!!! Winners will be announced On the Your Next Stamp Blog on January 28th.
And now, onto my projects!
I paper pieced the wings of the butterfly, coloring the edges and spots with Copics. I also colored the body with copics and cut it out to go over the pieced wings. The whole thing was mounted on foam tape and I stamped the matching sentiment on the polaroid die. I cut the card base to fit the die shape exactly.
I colored her with Copics and did a bit of shading with colored pencil. The cloud background was really simple – all you do is use the Puffy Cloud die set to cut a few cloud shapes out of masking paper. Stick them around your colored Rosalie and outline each cloud shape with a light blue Copic (I believe I used B00). Then just color in all the rest of the background with a lighter blue marker (B000). I also did just the littlest bit of shading of the clouds with a C00 marker – really fast and easy!
If you read my Sneak Peek Post yesterday, you’ll know that I’m super excited about the Lollipop Cover die I designed for YNS this month!! I’ll be back really soon with a couple more samples and a couple of the dies to give away!! Watch this space! :)
