Your Next Stamp May Feature Day - Artist Inspiration

It's time for this month's Feature Day at Your Next Stamp.
The theme is Artist Inspiration. 
I took inspiration from this Andy Warhol painting.  
I used lighter shades of the colors.
I used the Cool Tag Four Die Set for my panels and stamped my donuts from Ellie Loves To Bake and Premium Dye Ink Black Olive.  I just did simple coloring with my Copics YG21, BG01, RV23, YR02, no shading.  I arranged all my tags with removable tape, stamped my sentiment from Insanely Happy on my MISTI, then popped each tag up with foam tape.  I accented last with White Sugar and Sparkle Gumdrops.

MOM - you are tea-riffic!

Card For Mom

I used Your Next Stamp goodies to make a Mother's Day card for my Mom. 
My mom loves birds.  So I bought this set, Love Birds, just for her.  I first used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to make a frame then I used my MISTI and Premium Dye Ink Black Olive to stamp my birds on my frame.  I colored them all up using Copic markers then stamped my sentiment on my card base lined up to fit inside the framed rectangle.  Then I popped the frame up on my card front using fun foam.

SPD May 2017 Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop

It's Sweet 2 Repeat Blog Hop Time SugarPea Fans

Now that you SugarPea Lovers have the April Release
in your hands, its time for an inspirational hop from the Design Team. 

I just had to play with the new SPD Mini Muslin Bags
I stamped my images from This Little Piggy onto my bag using my MISTI and a Copic friendly ink.  I stamped each image individually and multiple times until I got the level of color I wanted, a nice deep black.  

 I colored in my scene I created using Copics.
First, I cut a panel of white cardstock and slipped it inside my bag before I colored.  This was to keep my markers from bleeding through to the other side of my bag.  I used Copics E000, E00, E11, R20, R22, R24, YR23, Y21, Y17, YG21, YG23, YG25, 0, BG0000, BG000, BG01.  I just dotted color, not circles like usual Copic coloring, to protect the markers from the texture of the bag. Also I recommend coloring just inside the black line to allow bleeding of the ink. 

I am very impressed 
with how easy it is to stamp and color on these bags.

Your Next Stamp New Release DT Dare - Gumdrops

This month's DT DARE is to make a project using YNS Gumdrops
I started by masking a border using painter's tape (the width of the tape about 1").  Then I sponged on some light color using YNS Premium Dye Ink - Lovely Lilac.  Next, I stamped three hamsters from Phoebe and Pets using Premium Dye Ink - Black Olive then die-cutting them using Phoebe and Pets Die Set.  I added just a tad bit of color to my hamsters using Copic E000.  Then cut them to look like they are off the page then popped them up on my background using foam tape.   I finished off by embellishing using the brand new Heart and Dot Gumdrops.
