Your Next Stamp June New Release Preview!!

Hello friends! I'm super excited to be guest designing this month for the fabulous Your Next Stamp!! I absolutely love working with this company and I'm always wowed by their fun and creative stamps, dies and accessories. Today is a special Sneak Peek Preview Day where you get to see what all the designers are doing with the awesome new stamps - before the big reveal Blog Hop on Thursday! Today, I'm using the super sweet Card Buddies stamp set to create three different cards. This stamp set is so versatile with so many different accessories!

The first card is a cute teacher thank-you card using the bunny and puppy in the set. I coloured all the animals and accessories in with Copic Markers and then mixed and matched them to fit each card. I thought the glasses, bowtie, book and apple were just perfect to set the scene for a teacher card! I used a thanks sentiment from the YNS Whatnot Sentiments Set Four stamp set and embossed with Emerald Creek Glacier White embossing powder on black cardstock. The stars are from a new set Cool Tees stamped with Distress Oxide Ink. (I'll be using the Cool Tees set on Thursday!!)

I used various papers and embellishments from the Scrapbook & Cards Today Sampler Packs from the last couple months. These are always fun to dig through to create something! I added a little Glossy Accents to the bunny's glasses - I love those glasses!!

For the second card I decided to create a wedding or anniversary card, using some soft floral paper in the background and the bear and pig stamps. I cut out the stitched frame border using the YNS Photo Booth Panel Die.

I added layers of foam tape to the animals and their arms and accessories to give them dimension. A bit of white gel pen adds detail to the images at the end.

And for the third card, because I just had to use all the images... I used the raccoon and cat to create a birthday card. I again used the YNS Photo Booth Panel Die, but instead of layering it on top of a full background piece, I used to the die to cut out focal cake images and placed them into the diecut on the cardbase. I added sequin embellishments from some Wild Whisper Designs sequin packs by SpiegelMom Scraps.

I added some Distress Oxide Inks to the Hooray For Cake diecut ephemera piece and popped it up with foam dots. I just love these little guys, and I still have so many more accessories to create with!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
