YNS February New Release Hop!

Feb82015-hopgraphic

Hi all!   Welcome to my stop on the Your Next Stamp February New Release Hop!  If you’ve been following the hop, you should have come from Thanh’s blog.  If you just happened upon my post, please go back to Annette’s blog so you don’t miss any of the eye candy we all have for you today!  {links are at the bottom of this post}

I’m so excited for this release, and hope you will be, too!  I just love the dino set (and of course I also love the matching dies!) and the Little Darling Jasmine with her baby tiger are SO cute!!  I’m also a huge fan of the circle Stitching Marks dies – they add just the right bit of detail to a plain circle diecut!  Now let’s see what I’ve made for you today.

First up I have this card using the baby tiger from LD Jasmine:

LDJasmine1

I made the background by using a 1/4” grid under my card on a light table.  I stamped him, starting in the middle, and then went line by line, staggering the lines a bit so it wouldn’t look as grid-like.  I white embossed a sentiment from Jungle Critters and added it over the background.

For my next card, I got a little help from my MISTI stamping tool:

DinoMite1

Using the Dino-Mite! set, I did the white outline embossing technique that I showed in a previous video, but this time I did it with the MISTI, which is much easier!  Here’s a video of the whole project:

BTW, I also used the Circles die set and the new Circle Stitching Marks die set.

As always, we have a great prize up for grabs – one winner drawn from all the comments on all the blogs will get a $20 YNS gift certificate!!

And there’s a sweet sale for you, too!
