I absolutely LOVE the new Love Sentiments stamp set!  Another fabulous mix and match stamp set from IBS!

This is the first card I created:
I love how an arrow was incorporated in the work love!  So unique and fun!!

On my next card I used the new Love Die!  This die matches the lovely "Love" sentiment I used above!  I decided to use it to create a fun shaker card, using the pretty Valentine's Day Sequins!!
I used the "You Forever" from the Love Sentiments stamp set!  I also stamped the two different sized hearts from the set!

On the top of my card I used some red ribbon, which is part of the Valentine's Day Ribbon pack!!

I used the new Blessed stamp set to create this beautiful layout for my daughter's album!
 I thought this stamp set was perfect to use for a title for this fall picture of my daughter!!  As I am truly blessed to have such a sweet little girl!  My little mini-me! 

I absolutely love stamp sets like this, to be able to mix and match all the sentiments makes the set so fun to use!!  You get the large "blessed" along with 13 other tiny sentiments and the "&" sign!!  How cool!!
I love the font used for the "blessed"!!

For this card I just used the "blessed" from the Blessed stamp set!  I used this card for my Godson's Baptism!

PURR-fect Day


Hello Crafty Friends!


I have a cute card to share with you using fun new dies from Frantic Stamper!!

I absolutely LOVE cats!  When I was little, living in the country with a barn on our property, I had tons of cats!  I was probably the crazy cat "kid"!  I can remember having about 30 cats running around outside!  I had them all named as well!!  Such a fun memory!
So I was excited to get the Peeking Cats die to work with, brought up some of those memories!

I currently have one inside cat, who is black and white so I based my die cuts on him!!  He just loves to cuddle!  I love it! I have to be careful though as he is able to open some of my plastic containers to get the string inside!

I also used the new Cat Sentiments stamp set!!  I love all the sentiments in this set!!

Be sure to check out all of Frantic Stamper's products here!!

Have a PURR-fect day!

Warmest Wishes


Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog!!


We have been having some really chilly weather here in Wisconsin!  -4 without the wind chill!! Brrr...So I still haven't been able to put away the lovely SnowflakeWonder stamp set.  I just absolutely love these beautiful snowflakes!  Plus I thought it may be nice to get a head start on my Christmas cards for this year! (Yes, I just said that!) 


I started by stamping the snowflakes randomly on a piece of paper in VersaMark Ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder!

After heat embossing I decided to take some of my favorite Distress Ink colors and add some fun bright colors to the background!  

After I finished adding my fun colors, I decided to add some pretty Sheer Shimmer Spray!  And as I was digging through my supplies I found my Goosebumps spray and thought it would be fun to add as well, as I absolutely love the finished look!
I like how the Goosebumps gives even more texture and looks as if it is still wet!  I love the snowy winter scene I created!

Once I liked how it looked I set it to the side to dry for awhile.

After it was dry I mounted it to a piece of white cardstock.  I then added some pop-dots to the back of the layer and mounted it to my card base!

I then used the Fancy Labels 3 Die set to die cut two banners, to stamp my sentiment on.  I stamped the "With Warmest Wishes" on one and then "to you & yours" on the other, which are both part of the Poinsettias stamp set!!
I just LOVE the bright colors of this card!!  As well as the gorgeous snowflakes!!!

Have a lovely day!

YNS January DT Dare

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
3 Colors


I decided to choose to use white, pink and black!

With the lovely release this month and Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought I would make a LOVE inspired card!
I used two of the heart dies from the Scripty Love Die Set to die cut them from my white card layer, to create shaker windows!!

I used the Cool Tag Two Patterns Dies to die cut the stitched banner, in which I then die cut the Love sentiment from the Scripty Love Die Set to put on top!  I just LOVE the font used for this die!!!  

I then stamped just the "you" from the Cool Tag Two Patterns stamp set!  I love how the font matches the love die!  They go so perfectly together!!!  

And once again I used the lovely Hugs and Kisses Paper pad for my patterned paper!!  I just love the colors used in the pad!!  It is a must have!!

YNS January Release

Hello Stamping Friends!

 It's release day at Your Next Stamp!!!
I just love release day!

So MANY great new stamp sets and dies being released today!!!


--------------------

I ABSOLUTELY love this new release!  I had so much fun with all the fantastic new dies, stamps and paper!!

I used the fun new Hugs and Kisses Paper for both the following cards!  I just love the patterns and colors of the papers in this pad!!


So as some of you may have caught before Christmas I featured the Circle Panel Die from YNS!  I just love this background die, it is so very fun to work with!  So many possibilities!

Well with YNS's January release, guess what?!  There's another one!!  This time it's hearts!!  Happy Dance!!  So excited!

So I featured the Heart Panel Die on this card:
Isn't it beautiful?!  I just love how this card turned out!!  I was so tempted to create a shaker card with it!  Next card I will!!

I featured the  Cool Tag 2 Patterns and coordinating Cool Tag 2 Patterns Dies on this card as well!!  I am also in love with these two!! The tag patterns are so fun and I love the font used for the two sentiments in the set!  On this particular tag I used I stamped it with the Cherry Blossom Ink!!

The Cool Tag 2 Patterns Dies I can tell will be used a lot!  I just love the tag as well as the cute little stitched banner!!  (As you will see below I used it for that card as well!!)

-------



Next up I have a sweet flip-it card using the fun new HalfHeart Flip Die!!


As stated above I used a mixture of papers from the new Hugsand Kisses Paper pad for this beauty!

I used the CoolTag 2 Patterns Dies for the stitched die cut banner, in which I then stamped the sweet little "Love You" from the  Sweet Little Greetings stamp set in Black Olive Ink!!

Close-up:
I finished up my card by adding some Magical Pastel Sparkly Gumdrops (my favorite!!) and some Aqua Divine Twine!!


What a fun release!!

YNS January Preview Day

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's that time of the month at Your Next Stamp!!  After taking a month off from a release in December, I am so very excited for NEW products!!!

It's Preview Day today!
Tomorrow is Release Day!!!!

Such a fun time!

As always, there is a wonderful release in store for you!

---------------------


For today's Preview, I got to use the super cute new Silly Book Monsters stamp set!

At first I was going to just create a bunch of note cards for my kids to write down book wish lists for when we go to the library, because it never fails they think of a book they would like to get at the library, but then when we go, they and myself included forgot what it was.

But shortly after I got the stamps, I was looking through photos from 2015 and stumbled across some photos my sister took of the kids and I outside reading!  My kids love reading!  Many times in spring and summer we'll grab some books and head outside!  So relaxing and fun! 

So I decided to create some fun project life pages for my kids albums using the fun Silly Book Monsters stamp set!
These monsters are just so cute!!  

The fun "Book Monster" and "Book Wish List" sentiments are also from the stamp set!  As well as the cute bookshelf!  Oh my daughter's title card I didn't color the bookshelf in, but on my son's I did:
I create the cute little "Book Wish List" cards and was originally going to just journal on them but then thought it  would be fun to incorporate my original idea.  So I had each of the kids write down books the like reading on their cards!  It was a fun way to get them involved!  As they looking helping me document their memories. (Mom son really got a kick out of the tiny mouse sitting on the book shelf)

I used the previously released Cute Alpha Squares and Cute Alpha Squares Die Set to add the "Read" title on the bottom pictures!

Here's a close up of one of the title cards:
So fun!!  I used the new Silly Book Monsters Die Set to die cut the fun monster after coloring it!  I then used pop-dots to add him to my title card!  Gives some fun dimension!

I can't get enough of these cute monsters!!

YNS Challenge #55

Hello Stamping Friends!

Time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp!!
Click here to find the current challenge!

Here's some inspiration for you:

Here is a card sketch....


and photo/colors to find inspiration from....


-----------------

I flipped the card sketch and altered it a little bit and used all the inspirational colors to create this masculine Birthday card:
 I stamped the fun fisherman from the Keepin' It Reel stamp set on some Copic Coloring Paper with the Black Olive Ink from YNS!  These inks work perfectly with Copics!  NO bleeding!

After coloring the image in I used the coordinating Keepin' It Reel Die Set to die cut him out!  As I used pop-dots to adhere him to my card!

The cute little fish and sentiment are also from the Keepin' It Reel stamp set!
Instead of the circle shape, I went with an oval shape and die cut it from my pattern paper.  I thought it would create a fun little shaker window behind my fisherman and sentiment panel.

I finished off my card by adding some Love Earth Gumdrops!!
