YNS Feature Day


Hi all!  It’s the 22nd of the month which means it’s time for our Your Next Stamp feature day.  This month we were asked to Think Spring!  Here’s what I came up with:


I used the heart in the Scrapworks - Mini Sunburst die set to cut the window out of the patterned paper.  I stamped the bunny from Sprinkles Happy Easter with Memento ink and my MISTI and colored with colored pencils.  I cut out Sprinkles with the matching die set and then put the negative and positive back in the MISTI to overstamp with Versafine for a really nice black line (I should have overstamped and then cut, but I wasn’t thinking.  Luckily MISTI saved the day!).

I cut the smaller banner in the 3D Banner die set and stamped it with a sentiment from the same Sprinkles set using my MISTI and then folded it up.  Finally I put all the pieces together on a white card base.  Here’s a video of the process in case you’d like to see it:

This is also for the following challenges:

  2. I found you on YouTube because of the MISTI and I had to come see your blog. Love what you do, and your explanations are great. I can't wait to tour your blog to see what you've done and I look forward to what you will be doing. I have the MISTI - now I'll be looking for some 3mm foam and the Eclipse mats.
