YNS September Feature Day

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's Feature Day at Your Next Stamp!!

Feature Day Theme Is....
Let's Learn our ABC's....Create Anything But a Card

In honor of school being back in session, what a fun theme!!

I decided to create a fun tag, using the Cool Tag Three Die Set, to be added to a package of candy!  

I stamped the Alpha Splatter Stamp on my die cut tag!  I used my Copics to color a few of the letters and numbers in!
I also used the fun School Notes stamp set and coordinating School Notes Die Set to add the sweet images and sentiment!  Thought this little tag and package would be fun to add in my daughter's lunch some day as a sweet surprise for her!!

She's always so thoughtful and leaving me cute little messages to find, so I thought I would do the same for her!!

I'm sure she will love it!!

Fall is in the Air


Hello Stamping Friends!


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

I used the super fun Blowing Leaves Square die to create my shaker window!!
I also used the Fall Words Die Set to die cut the 'Fall" sentiment from brown cardstock to match my pattern paper!

What a fun fall card!  I absolutely LOVE the cooler weather we have been having!!  It's sad summer has come to an end, but this cooler weather sure makes doing things so much more enjoyable!!  Not sweating just standing out side!  Plus I love when the leaves change colors!!  It's so beautiful!!

You Warm My Heart

Hello Stamping Friends!!

 Dare 2B Atrzy is once again a Super Sponsor for Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!!
With the lovely cooling weather outside the theme is....Fall!!

I created this super fun fall card:
I used the Perfect Blend stamp set for my coffee cup and sentiment!  I decided to leave my coffee cup white, as I wanted it to stand out from the kraft paper!  I decided to pair the fun coffee set with the lovely Tangle Leaves stamp set!

I stamped one of the leaves on my karft cardstock using VersaMark ink to create the fun leaf paper!  I also then used the ink and leaf stamp set to create the two leaves behind my coffee cup!!  I also used the coordinating Fall Leaves die set to die cut them out!!

I also used the Mug Die set to die cut the steam from a piece of vellum paper to add above my coffee cup!  I love the look!!

I may not be a coffee drinker, but I sure love my cappuccinos this time of year!!

Time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp!!

Click here to find the current challenge!
There is a fun sketch and colors to find inspiration from!!

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

I found some inspiration in some of the colors and followed the sketch!!

I decided to use the adorable new Scarf Weather stamp set! As well as the coordinating Scarf Weather Die Set!!

I started by stamping the lovely tree and tree swing image on a piece of white cardstock and used the Stitched Ovals Die Set to die cut the oval shape, cutting some of the image off.  I then colored the image, along with the adorable cat with my Copics!!

I used the Scarf Weather Die Set to die cut the kitty out after coloring!!  I just love being able to have coordinating dies with my stamps!!  It sure beats killing my eyes fussy cutting!!
I used the Washi Tape Die Set to die cut the smaller piece of washi tape!  I absolutely LOVE this die set!!  I then stamped the 'Fall Fun Is In the Air" from the Scarf Weather stamp set!  I used my distress inks to ink around the edges!!

I used the lovely new Fabulous Fall 6x6 Paper Pad for my pattern paper layers!

YNS September DT Dare

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
Get Inky

With the dare in mind I decided to use a few of my blue inks to create a background behind my sweet painting chick and easel!!

I used the Paint Swooshes and Splatters stamp set to create the background:
I then stamped the 'To a brilliant, creative, smart, generous, funny and attractive chick!' sentiment from the new Hobby Chicks stamp set!!

I stamped my chick image and easel from the Hobby Chicks stamp set, colored them with my Copics and then die cut them out using the coordinating Hobby Chicks Die Set!  As I wanted to use pop-dots behind them to make them stand up above my fun stamped background!!

What a fun card to give a creative friend!!!

I finished off the card by adding some Cosmic Crush Sparkly Gumdrops!!

Pretty Snowflakes


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have two cute cards to share with you using fun new snowflake dies from Frantic Stamper!!  

I'm a sucker for pretty snowflakes!!!

So I was very excited to see the newest three snowflake dies release by FS this month!!

For my first card, I used the Courchevel Snowflake (10318) to create the outline to the bottom right of my white cardstock layer!  I then was able to die cut the Luchon Snowflake (10317) from sticker paper and add blue glitter, so that it was then a beautiful sparkly snowflake!!  Which I added directly to my card base!
The 'let it Snow' sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps Flakey Friends stamp set!

So pretty!!

For my next card, I again used the Luchon Snowflake (10317) die!  I used it to die cut the outline of the snowflake from my white cardstock layer!  My daughter ended up using the actual die cut for a card she wanted to create!!
I used stamps from the Plaid Maker #2 stamp set to create the "pattern paper" behind my die cut snowflake!!  After stamping the polka dot stripes, I added clear tape to the top and added clear glitter, so once again the snowflake sparkled!!

Clean and Simple!! Yet so elegant!!

Have a lovely day!

I'm so excited for the new panel die!!  It'll be perfect for Birthday cards as well!!!

I die cut the Star Panel Die from a piece of white cardstock and kept all of the tiny stars, as I wanted to adhere a few of the smaller stars into the larger ones.   I really like the look!!  So much fun!!!

A Gift


Hello Stamping Friends!


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

This month's release focused on new Christmas dies!!  So it has me dreaming of the holidays! 

I used the new Nesting Lift-Flaps to create a flap on the front of my card, so that I could hide a gift card!

Here is a look as you open the flap:
I also used the new Gift Card Corner Holder die set, so that I was able to add the gift card to my card and to also add the 'A Gift' sentiment to the front of the card!

Such a fun way to give a gift card, instead of using the generic ones the stores give you!  So much personal!!

YNS Challenge #72

Hello Stamping Friends!

Time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp!!

Click here to find the current challenge!
There is a fun sketch and colors to find inspiration from, as always!!

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

I found some inspiration in the colors and followed the sketch!!

The sketch had me dreaming of fall!!  So I grabbed some of my fall paper and fall stamps from YNS to create this beautiful card:
I stamped the 'Autumn Greetings" sentiment from the Sandy Squirrel - Autumn Greetings stamp set with YNS's Black Olive Ink on the yellow polka dot pattern paper!!  I then thought it would be super fun to stamp the large maple leaf from the Fall of Color stamp set around the edges with Sunflower Yellow Ink!!  Adds a nice border around the edge!!

I finished up my card by adding some green glittery gumdrops from the Enchanted Forest Glittered Gumdrops set!!

Happy Christmas Lights with IBS


Hello Stamping Friends!

We've been having a lot of cooler weather here!  So it has started to make me think about fall, as well as Christmas!!

So hard to believe that Christmas is a little less than 4 months away!

So with that being said, I decided to create two lovely Christmas cards, featuring products from Inspired By Stamping!!

I first decided I wanted to use the cute light bulbs from the Festive Greetings stamp set!
I love bright, fun Christmas cards!

 So I decided to use pink, turquoise and purple for one of my cards for the solid bulb color!  And decided to use traditional red and green solid bulb colors for the other!

Which is your favorite?!

I really like them both!  But am always drawn to the colorful versions, as I love color!  But also love the elegant style of traditional!!

Here is a look at the finished cards:

I just used black in to stamp the bulb outline, which I ended up stamping slightly off, as I really like the look it gives!  And plus it is nice to not have to be perfect all the time!!
I also used the Happy Die for both of my cards!  And the coordinating Happy stamp set to stamp the 'Holidays' sentiment on each of the cards!

It's so much fun to create your own backgrounds!!

I really like how both of these cards turned out!!

Have a lovely day!
