YNS May New Release Hop!

May102015hopbadge

Hi all and welcome to my stop on the Your Next Stamp May New Release Hop!  If you’ve been hopping along, you should have come from Sue’s blog.  If you just happened upon my blog, please start at Sue’s blog so you don’t miss a thing! {links are at the bottom of the post}

I’m so happy with this release!!  My favorite set is definitely the Woodland Cuties (although I haven’t used them YET), and because I’m Japanese and *love* sushi, I got a real kick out of Soy Awesome and Maki A Wish!  I also have a new die perfect for making shaker cards - Confetti Die.  Anyway, let’s get on to my projects, shall we?

First up I have this card:

MakiAWish2

I used the Heart Ink Splatter with sour apple ink to be wasabi, and foiled the word wasabi in the sentiment with green Deco Foil.  I used the MISTI to stamp the splatter and do the sentiment from Maki A Wish in parts.  First I masked off the wasabi and inked the rest of the sentiment in black ink.  Then I hit the whole thing with my heat gun to make sure the inks were fully dry.  I also used my powder bag on the black parts to be extra sure! 

Then I masked off the rest of the sentiment and inked up wasabi with Versamark ink and stamped.  I embossed with clear EP and heated.  At this point I die cut the panel with the largest of the Stitched Rectangles.  I didn’t want to run it through my die cut machine AFTER I foiled and take a chance that I would ruin the foil.

Finally I covered the wasabi with a piece of green foil and ran the panel through my laminator.  I left the foil on the panel while I applied my adhesive to the panel and stuck it to my sour apple card base.  The very last step was to remove the foil piece.

Next up I have a little purse card that I made with the Treat Topper die set:

MakiAWish1a

I cut my white card base to 4 1/4” square and then cut the purse shape using a pattern I made up.  I cut the Candy Topper from black cardstock and used the layering rectangle to cut a piece of real washi paper and attached it.  I stamped the word Arigato (thanks in Japanese) from the Maki A Wish set and embossed with gold EP.  Hubby told me I should have used pearl cardstock for card base because plain white wasn’t fancy enough for the topper.  I agreed so I misted it with a pearl shimmer mist.  Hopefully you can see it a little in this shot:
