Need A Floaty? - Your Next Stamp Re-Release Peek

Hello everyone!

It is that time when we are usually celebrating a new release here at Your Next Stamp, but this month we are doing a re-release.  Karen and the Your Next Stamp home are moving to a new place, so the DT is focusing on a few super fun sets the YNS Store currently has.  Don't fret! Karen is still offering a fab sale, prizes to be won, and of course, we will be having the usual blog hop showcasing all the fun sets the DT chose. Be sure to head back over tonight for the start of the July blog hop.To start, we are focusing on the theme It's a Girl Thing.

My card today is one using the Snorkel Fun Penguin set. This little guy is so cute and is so much fun to create with.  I couldn't resist making a hidden slider card using the large spinner/slider die set in the YNS Store.

I stamped and colored in the penguin with Copics before cutting him out to be placed in the slider. I cut out the panel using the Stitched Rectangle Die set and cut the slider using the wavy die to cut out the area for the slide.  To make this slider, I adapted from this post from Jennifer McGuire to make this slider work for me. I really wanted it to work so the penguin would "bob" up and down. One of the sentiments was stamped directly onto the front wave panel and the second sentiment was the one hidden in the slide.  Here it is opened:

I finished this card by adding the puffy clouds and some glossy accents to the snorkel and bubbles for some added texture.  The glossy accent was not completely dry when I took this picture which is why his mask looks a bit cloudy. But when it did dry, it was a perfect look. This technique is super fun and I think I may have to make a few more. :)

Thanks for stopping by here and be sure to stop by the YNS blog to see all the creations and to leave a little love so that you may have a chance to win! And again, don't forget to stop back tonight for a fun re-release blog hop for July! Have a great Saturday!
