Your Next Stamp - June New Release Hop!


Hello! I'm so happy to be sharing some of the New Releases from the Your Next Stamp store with you today! I'm Guest Designing with the amazing team at the YNS blog this month, and I'm so excited to be working with their amazing products! I shared a sneak peek with you yesterday HERE, and today I'm using the fabulous new clear stamp set Whatnot Sentiments Ten! As soon as I saw these gorgeous scripty words I knew I wanted to pair them with some watercolours. I can tell you I'll definitely be using this set a lot!!

I'm going to be giving these cards to my daughter's preschool teachers - and the sentiments were perfect to show my appreciation for their kindness all year. These sentiments would make a wonderful friend or birthday card as well for someone special - and would work great inside and outside! I'm even thinking of making some pocket page cards using them for my scrapbook album!

I started off by heat embossing the sentiment with white embossing powder on plain white cardstock. Then, I smooshed Distress Oxide Inks onto a craft mat and spritzed them with water. I used a paintbrush to pick up the watered down ink and painted on three colours at a time. After drying with a heat gun I laid the panel into the remaining droplets to add layers of watercolour. I love the way the embossing powder resists the colour!


I even used the sponge and the Distress Oxide Inks to colour in my off white crochet trim and the smallest flower on each card, which was originally white. I was pleasantly surprised at how well both the trim and paper flower took the DOX Inks!

Inside, I used the Thanks sentiment, included in the stamp set, and stamped it with a coordinating colour of DOX Ink. I don't think you can ever have enough Thank You cards on hand - and I'll be using this sentiment a lot!

I added some of the new Gumdrops from the red/white/and blue package onto my cards and in the center of the flowers. They are so pretty and sparkly!! I love how they coordinate with the SpiegelMom Scraps sequins too. 

The pretty Wildflower paper from Kaisercraft is one of my favourites right now and looks beautiful with the watercolour panel.

Inside:

The Fabulous sentiments is one of my favourites from this set! I think I may just need more of these cards in my stash....

 A black sentiment would look great on the front card panel too!

Inside:

I'm sure my daughter's teachers are going to love these cards, and I hope it lets them know just how much we appreciate all they've done all year!

Here's a look at the Whatnot Sentiments Ten stamp set and new Gumdrops I used today on my project:
