Furry Friends Bookmarks

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's Feature Day at Your Next Stamp!!

Feature Day Theme Is....
Furry Friends

What a fun theme!!

With that in mind I instantly thought of the super fun new Cute Cat Bookmark Die Set and Cute Animals Add On Bookmark Die Set released this month!

Both my kids love reading!!

So I created these adorable bookmarks:
 Aren't they adorable?!

I used the Cool Tag Banner Sentiments stamp set for my sentiments on each one!

I could create a ton of these!!!
For this cutie, I used the 'you're' from the Krash the Horse stamp set and then masked the 'you are so awesome' from the Cool Tag Banner Sentiments stamp set to only stamp the 'awesome' for my sentiment!!

My daughter loves panda bears, so I created that one for her!!
So much fun!!

My daughter gave the cat bookmarks to two of her friends and they absolutely LOVED them!!

Be sure to check out the other DT projects on the YNS Blog and leave a comment for your chance at winning a stamp set of your choice!! You have until the 25th to leave a comment!

Be sure to check out all of the lovely products at Your Next Stamp!!

Fun Gift Box


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a fun project to share with you using products from Frantic Stamper!!

I started out by die cutting the Pyramid Treat Box (10370) five times from different pattern paper!  i thought it would be fun to adhere each of them together to create a larger gift box!!  Each box can hold a tiny little gift or candies!!
I used the Stitched Scroll Frames (10381) die set to create a tiny tag in which I the stamped the 'mi amiga' sentiment from the Hellos Around the World stamp set on it!  And then finished off the box by adding some pearls and large flower!!

Have a lovely day!

MCT January Release Blog Hop


Hello Sweet Stamping Friends!


It's the 75th Release at My Creative Time!!

How exciting!!

There are three new die sets being released today!  
I am absolutely in LOVE with each one of them!!

First I am going to showcase the lovely new More Scallop Heart Dies and XOXO Border Dies!!

I created this fun Box Card:
How fun!   I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!!

I used each one of the heart dies from the More Scallop Heart Dies set for the hearts inside the box!  I absolutely LOVE the scallop hearts and that they have a heart in each scallop!! So pretty!!

I used the Chalkboard Valentines stamp/die set for my sentiment and label on the front!  I thought the sentiment was very fitting with all the lovely die cut hearts!!

I love the new XOXO Border Dies set as well!  I just Love the 'xoxoxoxoxoxo..." around the entire rectangle border!  So awesome!  I used the smallest rectangle die in the set for each one of my flaps on my box.  It was the perfect height!!

I decided I wanted a little more on the flaps as there was a little more black showing then I wanted once I die cut the xoxo rectangles in red.  That is when a light bulb went off!! (I LOVE these moments!!!)

I decided to grab my Scalloped Stitched Square Dies and die cut 6 of the edges of the largest die from an off-white piece of cardstock!  I adhered a portion of each of the scallops to each side of my xoxo rectangle die cut and trimmed where needed!  Talk about getting the most out of your dies!!  How cool!!
I finished off the two side flaps by adding the 'xoxo' die cut in the center, which is part of the XOXO Border Dies set!  What a fun card box!!


Here is a look at the two new die sets:
More Scallop Heart Dies



Next I am showcasing the LOVELY new Cute Heart Tag!!

I love this tag die set! It is a MUST have, in my opinion!!

You can create some simple and cute tags, super fast with this set!!

I created some tags to go on some notepads I am giving my friends for Valentine's Day:
It adds such a nice touch!!

I used the I Adore You Kit for the sentiments on the front of the two above tags!!

Here is two more:
Just think of all the fun possibilities!!  I kept these tags pretty simple as just like this I think they are amazing!!  But you could add more hearts, images and embellishments!!

I added a sentiment inside each of them:
So fun and cute!!  I again used the I Adore You Kit for the 'Happy Valentine's Day' sentiment for the inside of the left tag and the You're A Hit Valentine stamp/die set for the right tag, to stamp the 'to:" and "from:"!!

This set makes creating tags so much FUN!!  I could sit and create tags all day!!!

Here is a look at the entire set:

YNS Challenge 81

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!!

Sketch


Color Inspiration:


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

I found inspiration in the sketch for my card today:
I absolutely LOVE the Happy Dance stamp set!!  You can't help but smile when you see this adorable Lizard!!   I want to do the Happy Dance with him!!

I stamped the Star Ink Splatter in Sunflower Yellow Ink a few times on my white card base!  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to die cut the rectangle that I then stamped the lizard on and colored with Copics!

I adhered the rectangle to my card base using an Action Wobble!!  So he actually does the HAPPY DANCE!! 

I added the two sentiments, which are part of the Happy Dance stamp set!!  And finished off the card by adding some Gumdrops!!

YNS Share the Love

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
Share the Love

With the theme in mind I decided to create a shaker Valentine's Day card, as I absolutely LOVE shaker cards!!  I love YNS's panel dies so much!!  Every time a new one is released, I just have to use it to create a shaker card!!!!

I love the new Mini Heart Panel Die!!
Isn't it a sweet little note card?!

And honestly, as I write this post, it doesn't even necessarily have to be a Valentine's Day card!  This would be a cute little card to just give your hubby or kids to remind them that you love them!!

For my sentiment, I stamped the 'I' and 'U' from the Silly Love Monsters stamp set right on the die cut panel, leaving a little space between them and colored with my Copics!
I also stamped the heart from the set  on another piece of scrap paper and colored it with my Copics!  I then used the coordinating Silly Love Monsters Die Set to die cut the heart!  I adhered it to my card with a pop-dot and then used my clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen to add some yummy glitter to the heart!!  I finished it off by adding some Glossy Accents to the top!!

I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!!  The heart is so pretty!!!


Be sure to check out the other DT projects on the YNS Blog and leave a comment for your chance at winning a stamp set of your choice!!

Rawr


Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I am sharing an adorable Valentine's Day card I created using stamps from the Crafty Doodle Chick shop!!

I love the adorable Rawr stamp set by Lawn Fawn, along with the coordinating Rawr Die Set!

When I first seen the set I instantly thought of my son!!

So I created this card for him for Valentine's Day:
Super fun and cute!!  

I just love the tiny dino!!  

I used a set of my circle dies to die cut an opening near the bottom left corner of my white cardstock layer, so that I could added some fun pattern paper behind!  And then added the dino and 'rawr' speech bubble!!
I decided to stamp the 'rawr means' and ' in dinosaur!' in black ink and then stamp the 'i love you' in a teal ink!  I love the look!!  All three parts of the sentiment are from the Rawr stamp set!  

I just love these tiny stamp sets from Lawn Fawn!!  So happy CDC carries them!

Be sure to check out all the lovely products the Crafty Doodle Chick shop carries!!


Have a lovely day!

This time of the month is always so exciting!!

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

Today I am featuring the new Beary Special stamp set!!

MCT Make it in Minutes


Hello Sweet Stamping Friends!

I'm joining in the post today on the My Creative Time Blog!

Today's theme is...
Make It In Minutes

I admit; clean and simple cards can sometimes be hard for me to create!!

So I decided this would be a great challenge for me!  As CAS cards can be absolutely beautiful!  

So I grabbed the lovely I Adore You Kit!!  As I am just smitten with this set!!

I created these two cards within minutes:
I honestly think it took me longer to cut the card stock, pick out my pattern paper and die cut the hearts then it did to put the cards together!!

These heart dies are so much fun to work with!!

The possibilities are endless...
I even stopped myself from adding gemstones, which was very hard!!  But am really happy with how these quick cards turned out!!

Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time Blog 
to see more wonderful inspiration from the DT!

Have a lovely day!
