YNS September 2017 Release Preview

 

 

Hello and welcome to the September 2017 Release Preview for Your Next Stamp (YNS).  I am thrilled to be back for the third month as a new release guest designer!  It’s been so fun getting to play with their wonderful new releases.

For my card today, I am featuring a sweet macaron stamp set called Ooh La La.  I must admit, I have never had a macaron.  I’ve eaten macaroons though. 😂  So after googling them, I went with the soft pastel colour ones and created this…

 

YNS Supplies: Ooh La La, White Sparkle Gumdrops

 

Since I was going the pastel colour route, I took the opportunity to use my Distress Oxide (DOx) inks.  The macarons were stamped on hot press watercolor paper in the different DOx colours.  A watercolor brush was then used to colour them in their respective colours.  They were fussy cut out.

 

 

Using the same DOx inks, a mini blending tool and masking strips, the rainbow stripe was created on A2 size cold press watercolor paper so it could be spritz with water.  The black line was created by masking a white 4″ x 5.5″ piece of cardstock and blending Black Soot distress ink.  Black ink from my fingers kept smearing, so in hindsight, I should have just cut a back strip.  Lesson learned.

 

 

The sentiment from the set was black heat embossed.  All panels and macarons were assembld on a white top folding card base.  White Sparkly gumdrops finished off the card
