Your Next Stamp Challenge #1

Hi! If you're looking for the La-La Land Crafts Blog Hop, it's the post directly below this one. Thanks!


Yay! We have our first Challenge at Your Next Stamp today! But before I get to it, I have a winner to announce from my World Card Making Day post. I had many comments, but only 7 that listed their favorite YNS stamp/stamp set. I used Random.Org and it chose #1 (wow - when does that ever happen?!), and that lucky person is Angela! Angela, please email Karen (karen (at) yournextstamp (dot) com) to claim your 2 free digi images!

And now on to this week's challenge! It was set by Amy and is a color challenge: use mostly Pink and Yellow on your project. All of the Starlets used the brand new Halloween digi images that are available today from Your Next Stamp. Here's what I came up with:

I used the Cute Witch and Happy Halloween set. For the witch, I printed her twice, colored certain portions with Copics, then cut out and 3D layered the moon, hat, bottom of the broom, one arm, and both boots. You can see the dimension better here:

This card also qualifies for A Spoon Full of Sugar's Halloween challenge.

We'd love for you to play with us! All the details can be found on the Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog. And remember that these digi images are only being sold for a limited time, so if you love them, hurry over to the YNS Store! They can all be found in the Limited Edition section. TFL!

Other materials used: patterned paper - SEI; ribbon - May Arts; charm - eBay.
