The wait is finally over! It is time for the June new release with Your Next Stamp and Blog Hop!
As I mentioned yesterday, I was thrilled to see a new sport fanatic set released for a sport my son plays for and is hard to find a stamp for it. That sport is Lacrosse!! This set is so much fun and the sentiments are awesome. While coloring this little guy up, I wanted to color him in all the colors my son wears for the sport and he had a great time "consulting" me on what to color where. :) This set is called Sports Fanatics - Lacrosse and it also has a coordinating die set sold separately.
Just to give you a visual of my son's crazy color choices in gear, here is a picture of him playing. There is no doubt we are able to see him on the field.
For this card, I used the YNS Chunky Grass die for the bottom and stamped and cut out the image using the die to pop up over the grass. For the background sentiment, I stamped the words repeatedly to place behind the image. The sentiment was stamped on the die cut out from the new Cool Tags 3 die set to also be popped up. It was completed with a few of the new matte gumdrops.
My next card is one using the new set of Fishy Fun. Another super fun, summery set, also perfect for cards to made for my FIL. With this set, I couldn't resist using water colors for the background and coloring in the images. Distress inks and my Sai watercolor pens were used.
I just love the sentiment I used that is in the set as it is perfect! I say hello in this way at times with friends, so it will be a used sentiment for sure! Ranger watercolor paper and distress inks were used to create the water background before stamping the images on top. Once the ink dried, I went over it with more watercolors and finished it off with some Glossy Accents, my Wink of Stella pen for a little sparkle, and more matte gumdrops.
