Your Next Stamp Feature Day Mash Up

Hello fellow card makers.

Today, I am sharing my project for Your Next Stamp. It's Feature Day over on the Your Next Stamp blog. We were challenged to create a project around the theme "mash up". A mash up is just a fun way of saying use multiple sets. So, I used multiple sets. I have certainly been known to use multiple sets on my cards, but I really am cognizant of what I'm using. I want to be inspiring with my projects, not causing you to purchase ALL of the sets in the world. Although... I wish I had all the stamps. If I ever have ALL of the sets, that would mean that I have a warehouse somewhere and I can truly say, I'm living the dream.

Don't forget to visit the Your Next Stamp blog to check out what everyone else has come up with under the "mash up" theme. (CLICK HERE!) Also, comment over there for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice in the Your Next Stamp online store.

I started with a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock. I used the Kaiser Craft Splash stencil and some Distress Oxide inks in Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon to ink blend some splashes onto the background of my card. I used sponge daubers to do this. After the ink was on the paper, I used Bo Bunny Sugar Glitter paste to add sparkle to my splashes. If I had to do this again. I would use Neenah 110. I made a bit of a mess with the ink blending because the Bristol paper is coated with an overlay of vellum which helps the ink slide on the paper. Only, the Distress Oxide doesn't need the extra slip. Make sure you set this aside to dry for a fair amount of time. I'm sure mine sat for at least an hour before I started to touch it.

After my piece dried I cut it down with a Your Next Stamp Stitched Rectangle Die (second from largest). I brought out some Anita's Basic Pastel Vellum Pack to make some waves. I used the blue shade in the pack and the Wave Die by YNS. I also cut the wave piece down with that same stitched rectangle die. This will sit towards the bottom of my panel.

I then stamped the dolphin image from the YNS Sea Friends stamp set for the May release. I stamped the image in Your Next Stamp Black Olive Ink on a piece of Neenah 110 lb Solar White cardstock and colored it with my Nuetral gray Copic Markers. I used the Coordinating Dies to cut it out.

I cut a 1 inch strip of Neenah 110 lb cardstock to do two things. I needed a way to adhere my vellum waves to my cardstock and I also needed a place to put my sentiment. So, I stamped a two tone sentiment using Distress Oxide ink in Salty Ocean and Versafine Onyx Black ink. To see this being done, click the link to my YouTube video that I created while making this card.

I adhered the panel using white craft foam and double sided adhesive. I popped up my image and the wave vellum piece with Scotch 3M foam tape. I finished off the project using Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins in various sizes fixed with glue dots. The panel sits upon a Simon Says Stamp Fog Cardstock card base.
