Your Next Stamp – Inside and Out Challenge

Hello again! A little bit ago I shared a fun card featuring my very first stamps from Your Next Stamp. I love those little hammies and also had so much fun playing along with their challenge that I decided to play along again! Sooooo…guess who’s back??? šŸ˜‰

Well, Hammie, of course! The challenge is “inside and out” which means you need to decorate the inside and outside of your card. Not difficult but I don’t typically do it so I thought it would be fun to give it a shot.

For this card, I used watercolor paper and my Tombow markers with the smooshing effect. I always love how this turns out. Then I used my largest Flags and Frames die from Newton’s Nook to cut the panel out. I temporarily adhered it to a gray cardbase and die cut a circle from both at the same time. Then I added foam tape to the watercolor panel and put it back in place so the windows lined up.

Then I grabbed my Hammie – Coffee and Tea stamps, inked them up and colored them with my copics. Once they were die cut I glued one inside the card peeking through the window and popped the other up with foam tape slightly overlapping the window.

Last, I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment and die cut it with a flag from the same Frames and Flags die set I used earlier. This was also popped up with foam tape.

I opened up my card and stamped a second sentiment that I thought played off the first one quite well and then set to finishing touches.

For those, I added white gel pen accents throughout the images, glossy accents to the Hammie noses and scattered a few colors of Nuvo Crystal Drops throughout the design.

Making this card totally on a whim, I love how it turned out! It will be fun to mail to someone just to make them smile. Happy mail is the best! Don’t you think?

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
