YNS March Feature Day

Hi everyone.  Today is my final post as March guest designer for Your Next Stamp.  It’s Feature Day at YNS and this month’s theme is laughter.  Leave a comment on their blog post here for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice.  For my card, the idea came from this 😂 LOL emoji.  I initially added tears, but they looked like they were crying rather than laughing.

So…I nixed the tears and created this card.

YNS Supplies: Create a Character | Silly Monsters Chill OutCircles diesStitched Rectangle dies | Happy Spring Paper Pad | Gumdrops

First I die cut the stripe pattern paper with the largest Stitched Rectangle.  I didn’t have the right yellow colour cardstock so I coloured scraps of white cardstock with a Clarity brush and Mustard Seed distress ink.  I stamped the faces with black Versafine ink, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then die cut them with a circle die.  To give them definition, the edges were outlined with a Y15 Copic marker.  All faces but one were attached to the upper 2/3 of a 3.25″ x 4.5″ white piece of cardstock before it was die cut with the third largest 3″x 4.2″ size Stitched Rectangle.

The sentiment was white heat embossed on a black stitched strip and then adhered below the laughing faces.  The last face was adhered to overhang the black sentiment strip.

The card was assembled on a white top folding card base and a few yellow gumdrops were added to finish.

  1. Oh how cute! The tears add a touch of fun, but the smiles all on their own are great, especially when there are so many. Thank you for joining us all month long and sharing your creativity!
