I am so EXCITED to be a guest designer for Your Next Stamps for the month of September!  I will be getting to share with you my projects for the challenges, new releases (Woohoo!), and just plain fun creations!

YNS guest DT card 1 watermark

One of my favorite stamp sets from YNS is the Keepin’ It Reel and I chose to use this for my intro card and let you get to know a little about my style.  I love, did I say I LOVE, to use stitched dies, oxide inks, and copic markers on my cards.  I also like to have white space around my cards and use geometric shapes to showcase the stamps.

For this card, I created the background with oxide inks on watercolor paper, then spritzed with water and dabbed off with a paper towel.  I then die cut the frame and added some inked die cut grass.

I colored all the images from Keepin’ It Reel with copic markers and cut out.  I then heat embossed the sentiment in black and pop dotted all the stitched pieces.  I glued the fisherman and purple fish down and pop dotted the rest.  I added some clear drops for the fishes bubbles for a little embellishment.

Inside, I inked a stitched die cut rectangle and heat embossed with black.  I stamped the ink splatters with the Mini Ink Splatter stamp set using oxide inks and added one colored shark for good measure!
