Your Next Stamp-Happy Cat!

2:12 AM 0 Comments


Hello! I'm sharing an extra project today using one of the new release stamp sets-Happy Cat! I just think he is adorable!!! I love this set because you can choose from several different images to have this cutie hold up, and today I chose the fun cake image:) I stamped my images with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copic markers. I then cut them out with the coordinating Happy Cat Die Set.




For the background, I used the Confetti Panel Die as a stencil to sponge the background confetti, and then cut out the circle with the Circles Die Set. I sponged the circle while keeping the circle in the die which gives the white edge. Finally, I framed the cute scene with a Stitched Rectangle Frames Die. I really love how it came out and I hope it gives you some inspiration!

Your Next Stamp Spring Series Day Three!

12:00 AM 0 Comments


Hello! We are showcasing some of the Spring YNS stamp sets this week, and I chose the adorable All Aboard Bunch of Happiness stamp set to work with. I decided to create a sweet spring themed birthday tag for my project. I just love all these darling images, and thought it would be fun to layer them together! It also shows their versatility because you don't always have to use the All Aboard train carts with these images:)


I stamped each image with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copic markers. I then cut them out with the coordinating All Aboard Bunch of Happiness Die Set. I layered them all on a tag cut with the Cool Tag Six Die Set, and finished it off with some ribbon and twine. It's going to be hard to give this one away, I just love it!

That's it for me! Make sure you stop by the YNS Blog to see the other spring themed projects and have a wonderful Wednesday!

I decided to make an anniversary card for my hubby because I think I am so incredibly lucky to be married to a man who treats me like a princess for the last almost 21 years! He is still my favorite person and very best friend and I consider myself so blessed to have him!

I used the adorable set Latte Happy Vibes for my sweet image and sentiment, and the Latte Happy Vibes Die Set to cut it out. I simply sponged the background with Tea Dye Distress Oxide Ink and splattered with some water and some brown watercolor paint. I used the MFTWSC532 for my layout.

Your Next Stamp Sweet Holiday Cookies!

12:00 AM 1 Comments


Hello! I wanted to pop in and share this cute little project I made using the adorable YNS Sweet Holiday Cookies Stamp Set! I also used a fun Silhouette file called 3D Gingerbread Milk Carton Box.

I stamped these cuties with Black Olive Ink, colored with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating Sweet Holiday Cookies Die Set. Then I cut out all the gingerbread house pieces with my Silhouette machine and started putting everything together! To complete it, I added the cute clothespin to close the top of the box, and some red and white baker's twine to the wreath.


I think it turned out so stinkin' CUTE! Love it and I just adore these sweet cookies!!!


Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a very merry Christmas!
