Your Next Stamp - Challenge 112

Hi again!

Things have been so busy here that I haven't had much time in my craft room, but I have a fun - somewhat crazy - clean and simple card for you today.  It's for this week's challenge over at Your Next Stamp and uses both an old and a new set...

This was my son's birthday card and he thoroughly appreciated it.  The new Whatnot Sentiments Thirteen set is such a wonderful set with great encouraging and sweet sentiments... but this is what I thought of first.  LOL!  The monster is from Silly Monsters and the inside of the card says... "RAWR:  Hello in Monster"

Have a great day!

Hello again, friends!

I have a sweet, spring-y card using florals for the new challenge over on the Your Next Stamp blog today.  Be sure to stop over there and leave a comment to be in the prize draw, and play along with the challenge for another chance at a prize!

I colored my image with Copics today, aiming for a pastel-ish watercolor look.  I love the soft colors!

Your Next Stamp April New Release Blog Hop

Hello friends!

Can you believe that it is already April??  The birds are singing and the grass is starting to show patches of green in my part of the country.  I even saw some spring flowers today!!  YAY!  Today there are new stamp sets blooming at Your Next Stamp that are making me smile.  I think my favorite this month is the set I am using today - just because I love that little deer.  I'd love to hear your favorite, too!!  In fact, don't forget to hop through and leave comments on all the blogs by April 7th at midnight EST so you'll have lots of opportunities to be in the drawing to win a $25 gift certificate!! :)

I used the new Joyful Wishing Well set for today's card and aimed for a storybook look.  I stamped the wishing well in Black Olive ink on my main panel and then stamped the little deer, die cut it with the matching die and colored it with Copics.  I cut the Fancy Wishing Die out of brown card stock and used a couple of Love Earth Gumdrops as the dots for the "I"'s, so I didn't have to try to pick up those tiny pieces of paper. :). I used different thicknesses of 3D Foam to give the piece some dimension.
