Fishy Shaker


Hello Stamping Friends!


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

I used dies from the recent Under the Sea Fantasy to create this CAS masculine Birthday card:
I started by using the Underwater Sea Oval die to create my shaker window.  I then also used the Shipwreck die to add the sunken boat into my scene!  Isn't it fun?!  I sure think so.

The 'Birthday Wishes' sentiment, is from the Pirates stamp set from Inspired By Stamping!

I finished off this fun card by adding the cute Performing Elephant!!

So fun!!

Be a Mermaid


Hello Stamping Friends!


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

Have you had a chance to see the new Under The Sea Fantasy Release?
So many fun new dies and stamps!!

I decided to use some of the new products to create a sweet layout for my daughter's album!!

I had an adorable photo of my daughter on our beach late last summer, where I buried her legs and made it look as if she was a mermaid!

This release was a perfect chance to create this layout: 
 I started by stamping the Bubbles Background Stamp on my background, so that it would be behind my photo!  I think it adds a nice touch!

I die cut the Seahorse Edger Facing Left with some fun glittery paper!!

I used the Deckled Rectangles to die cut a rectangle to stamp the 'be a mermaid and make waves!" sentiment from the Under the Sea Mermaid stamp set!
I also die cut the fun Swimming Mermaid to add by the sentiment!

What a fun layout!!

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

Have a lovely day!

I am so excited to share with you this next card!

 I had so much fun creating it!!

I stamped the 'happy' sentiment from the new Happy Stamp Set multiple times on a piece of white cardstock, each time in another color ink.  Somewhat to resemble the rainbow!!
I then took some of my mists to splatter ink on the piece of cardstock!  I really like how it turned out!!  Make a mess, but was well worth it!!

I also stamped the 'birthday' sentiment from the set on a banner to add!

-----

Next up I used the 'you are my' sentiment from the Happy Stamp Set to create a banner for this super cute little project life page I created for my daughter's album!!
I then die cut the Happy Die from a piece of black paper to add to the bottom right of the layout!

Such a sweet photo of myself and my mini-me!!

IBS Release Summer Bouquet


Hello Stamping Friends!


Welcome to day 2 of Inspired by Stamping’s July 2017 Release!
We are so happy you are here!!!

This week Inspired by Stamping is releasing 3 new stamp sets and 2 new coordinating die cuts to their store. All new products are already available in the store! You can visit us by clicking here!

----------

Today we are featuring the gorgeous new Summer Bouquet stamp set!!

I just LOVE IBS's floral stamp sets, each one of them is so amazing!!

I decided to use the floral image to make my own piece of background paper for this anniversary card I created for my parents:
I stamped it with VersaMark ink, so that I could then heat emboss with a beautiful Pearl Embossing Powder!! 

I just love how it turned out!!  Such an elegant card!! 

I also stamped the 'Anniversary' sentiment from the Happy Stamp Set, which we will be showcasing tomorrow!!  Along with the fun coordinating Happy Die, which I die cut using a piece of teal paper!

-----

Next up I used the floral stamp on the right side of my card using some purple ink:
I tend to always feel as though I need to color all my images in, but you can really create some pretty elegant cards by using colored ink and leaving them as is!!

I stamped the sweet 'Sending hugs & happy thoughts' sentiment from the Summer Bouquet stamp set as well!

IBS Release Smile


Hello Stamping Friends!

Welcome to Day 1 of Inspired by Stamping’s July 2017 Release!
We are so happy you are here!!

This week Inspired by Stamping is releasing 3 new stamp sets and 2 new coordinating die cuts to their store. All new products are already available in the store! You can visit us by clicking here!

----------

I am absolutely in LOVE with the new Smile stamp set and coordinating die that is being showcased today!!

First up I created an elegant card with the stamp set:
I love how you can use the stamp set to create so many different sentiments!!!  I decided to go with the 'You make me' along with the 'smile'!

-----

I also used the stamp set to create a project life page for each of my kids albums!!

I've had these adorable photos in my pile for awhile and haven't been able to find the right time to use them until now!!  When I received the Smile stamp set I instantly thought of these sweet photos my sister took of my kids!!
So I created a title banner for each of the pages!  I stamped the 'I love your' from the stamp set and used the matching Smile Die to die cut the 'smile'!!

I really like how it turned out!!

The project life page for my son's album:
I again kind of went with the same style, but with his die smile I decided to replace the dot above the 'i' with an enamel heart!!

I also used the Smile stamp set to stamp the 'Your smile lights up my world' sentiment on a project life card I created. 

How fun!!

So many uses in one stamp set, I love it!!

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
It's A Guy Thing

With us having the 'It's a Girl Thing' theme during YNS's preview day this weekend, we thought it would be very fitting to have 'It's a Guy Thing" for our DT Dare this month!!  Can't leave out the wonderful males we have in our lives!!

It's always nice to have a few extra masculine cards on hand!!

I decided to use the adorable Golf Dog Zach stamp set for my card today!!
Along with the cute 'May the COURSE be with you!' sentiment from the set!!

My son got a cute giggle from this card as we were making it together!!

I can't get enough of the new Summer Plaid 6x6!!  Every single sheet in this paper pad is amazing!!  I absolutely LOVE it!!

I finished off the card by adding some blue gumdrops from the new Fairy Magic Sparkly Gumdrops set!

Thankfully it isn't real!  I can handle this cutie, but it hasn't changed my mind on the real ones!! Lol.
I broke up the fun "You're the Bessssst!" sentiment, by stamping the 'You're the' in Black Olive Ink and 'Bessssst!' in Olive Green Ink!  I really like how fun it looks!

I used a piece of plaid paper from the awesome new Summer Plaid 6x6 Paper Pad!  This is a MUST have pad, each piece of plaid is amazing!!  I love it!!

Here is a look at the entire Monty stamp set:

YNS Challenge #68

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!!

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

I found some inspiration in some of the colors and followed the sketch to create a project life card for my daughter's album!!  Decided it would be fun to switch things up a little and get a project life page created with this challenge!!
I started by grabbing a fun piece of striped paper, I then stamped the Flower Ink Splatter in the bottom left corner with Cherry Blossom Ink!

I then created two banners in which I die cut the sentiment "Girls Night" using the Bold Aplpha Die Set, I absolutely love this die set!!  I used the Cool Tag Two Patterns Die Set to die cut the little heart, which I used for the apostrophe in "Girl's"!!  What a clever idea, if I say so myself!! ;)

I then used the Flower Blossom Trio Die Set to add the trio of flowers on the project life card!!  I added a Gumdrop to each of the centers!

Here is a look at the entire page:
My daughter and her sweet friend share the same birthday month, so my friend and I took the girls on a fun girl's night for pedicures and supper!!

I also used the Cool Tag Two Patterns Die Set to die cut the banner below, to add the to photo:
In which I used the Heartfelt Sentiments stamp set to stamp the sweet sentiment!

Such a sweet page!!

Hello Friend with IBS


Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I am on the Inspired By Stamping Blog!!


I decided to finally try a fun background technique I have been wanting to do for a long time now!  You know how it is...there is NEVER enough time in the day to do everything you want to do!

So I finally decided to take some time to give it a try and I am so happy I did, I love how this card turned out!!

I started by grabbing a few supplies:

I started by grabbing my Distress Inks I wanted to use, in this case; Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet and Dusty Concord! 

I grabbed a Round Blending Tool for each color.  And began to have some fun!!
I pressed the tool onto my ink pad lightly and then pressed it onto my white cardstock!  I repeated this step a few times!

It started to look something like this...
 How fun!  Just think of all the fun possibilities!!!

I continued with my other colors as well until I was satisfied with my background...

I then grabbed the Butterflies stamp set and inked the pretty butterflies with my StazOn Opaque White Ink and randomly stamped them on the background I created...
Above is a look at one of the stamped butterflies!  Continue reading to see my finished card!!

Here is a look at my finished card:
I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!!

I used the Fresh Bouquet stamp set for the lovely 'Hello' sentiment and the Big Wonderful stamp set for the 'friend' sentiment!

I finished off the card by adding some lovely IBS Flowers and some silver rhinestones!!

Joanna has been lovely enough to offer one of my followers a $20 Gift Certificate to the store!!  Be sure to find me on Instagram here, for details and the giveaway!!
