Hi all and welcome to my stop on the July New Release Hop for Your Next Stamp! We have a whole bunch of new stamps and dies for you, including a few that I designed! Yay! If you’ve been following the stops, you should have arrived here from Holly’s Blog (links below), but if you just happened upon this post, why not go back to the start so you don’t miss a stop!
I’m really excited about this release (as I am with all releases) because we have so much awesome cuteness to share with you! Also, I’m extra excited because I have some products in this release that I designed!! For this release I designed the super fun Ninja Surprise stamp set and matching pop-up die set!! I also designed all of the scenery elements in the Ocean Scene die set, and then Karen added in the sea creatures.
I loved playing with these new releases, so let’s get to my projects!
First up, I have a card made with a really cool technique that I got from Lydia Fiedler – stamping and coloring with colored pencil on black paper:
I didn’t have the black pastel paper that Lydia used, so I made do with some Stampin’ Up! black cardstock. I stamped in white and then colored with my Luminance colored pencils. I’ll be doing a video soon on this technique! I used the bird and a sentiment from the new Celebrate in Color stamp set.
And the inside:
Isn’t that fun?! There’s a pop-up ninja on the inside! Here’s a video showing how I made the card:
And here’s THE LINK in case you can’t see the video player above.
As always, we’ll have a winner randomly drawn from all the comments on all the blogs in the hop to win a $20 YNS gift certificate! And there’s also a sale:
Now you’re headed to Sue’s Blog, but don’t forget to leave me a comment before you go! Happy hopping!
