Your Next Stamp April Preview Day

The release will be live starting Saturday April 7th at 10:00 pm.

Today I am using the new Photo booth stamp set and Photo booth panel die set. Both of these items are new for April. I started with cutting out the panel die three times. Twice from Neenah 110 lb cardstock and once more from a piece of patterned paper from Echo Park called Magical Moments. I adhered all three die cuts together with Ranger multi medium matte liquid adhesive. I wanted to give the frame work some dimension so that I could inset my images into the given boxes. Once the framework was in place, I started to fill in each box using a different die cut or image.

The Photo booth panel die set comes with 5 coordinating dies. I used them to fill in each box. The upper right box and the lower right box were filled with the both a stamped image and the open door die cut that comes in the set. I stamped all of my images with Your Next Stamp Black Olive ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I inset the image panel first and then overlaid it with the open door die cut from the set.

The second box was inlaid with a piece of patterned paper and then I added the die cut stars also from the Photo booth die set. For the center box, I used an inlaid die cutting technique using the smile word die included in the Photo booth panel die set. The letters of the word die are popped up using black craft foam. The final box was filled with patterned paper that I had stamped with sentiments from the Photo booth stamp set. I used a combination of Versafine Onyx Black ink and Hero Arts Clear embossing powder and/or Versamark and Hero Arts Ultra Fine White embossing powder.

All of this was put onto a Simon Says Stamp Fog card base. I really like how the card turned out. It is super fun to open the little doors to revel images behind them. I always really enjoy doing an inlaid die-cutting technique as well.
