March Feature Day - Laughter is the Best Medicine - Your Next Stamp

 Hello crafters !

It's feature day at Your Next Stamp ! The theme today is... Laughter is the best medicine ! HAHAHA !! 😁 How fun ! You are going to love this one !!

Here is my take. I used mainly YNS Silly Monsters stampset. This set is always my go to stamp set for a fun and silly card that will surely bring smile to any recipient because it has the cutest monsters bearing the quirkiest and widest smile !! 😁 I've decided to make it interactive and fun !

Using Neenah crest solar white 110lbs card stock as my panel, I positioned where I wanted the action to be and stamped on the sentiments using versamark ink and black heat emboss it. 

Next, I stamped on two monsters each at the bottom left and right and masked them before stamping the middle one. I altered their eyes by drawing a slightly curved line to make them look happier using black Copic multiliner pen. For the fourth monster, I stamped it on a separate piece of white card stock and fuzzy cut it out. All images were colored in using Copic markers.

I masked the monsters on the card panel and ink blended the background using a circle stencil in my stash and MFT premium dye inks - sno cone, grapesicle, banana split, tickled pink, persimmon. 

For the spinner part, I position the third and fourth largest of YNS Circles with Stitching and piercing marks die around the sentiments and cut out a ring. At the same time, I die cut a spinner disc using YNS slider/spinner die set. I adhered the smaller circle onto the center of the larger one using a strong glue and let it dry completely.

To assemble the card, I adhered the front panel onto a top folding vertical card base using foam tape like so.

Next, I taped down the inner ring using my tape runner and placed the spinner disc along the outer ring track and adhered the sentiment circle at the center using foam tape.

Finally, I glued down the red monster onto the spinner disc using strong glue and let it dry completely.

For finishing touches, I sticked on some gum drops and added glossy accents onto the monster eyes for extra dimension and interest. And, the card is DONE ! Hope you like this.
