Your Next Stamps welcomes Ann Ellis designs!

Good morning!  Today I have a true "stampy" card to share with you using one of the new July release stamp sets from Your Next Stamp (available July 6th) .  Karen has new stamp artist (Ann Ellis) and a bunch of fun new summer themed stamps coming your way this month.

To create my card I made my own sunflower patterned paper by stamping the flower in two tones of yellow ink (rotating the stamp a bit) and then added a brown center.  I then stamped a bunch of green leaves.  I stamped each leaf twice to give different tones of the same green.  Finally I added some orange dots throughout the stamped panel.

And here's a look at how I added some glossy accents to the dots and center of the flowers to add a bit of shine:

Stamps: Ann Ellis Sunflower set from Your Next Stamp (available July 6th)
Ink: Ranger Distress Inks - Vintage Photo (brown), Peeled Paint (green), Mustard Seed (yellow), Wild Honey (orange), Squeezed Lemonade (yellow)
Papers: Neenah white cardstock, Lily Bee Designs, Bazzill cardstock
Accessories:  May Arts twine, wood button, Dienamics scalloped border die, glossy accents
