Your Next Stamp Special Feature-FALL!

Hello! It's Special Event Day at YNS and this month we are featuring  Fall, Thanksgiving, and Halloween inspired creations:)

For my card, I used the YNS Fall of Color stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip Ink and cut it out with a Circle Nestability. I sponged around the sentiment with orange ink while leaving it in the Nestability. I stamped the leaves with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with Copics, and cut them out. The layout I used is Mojo Monday 363 and the dp is Carta Bella A Perfect Autumn. Finally, I added some stitching and some fabulous Gold Nugget Gumdrops-LOVE!!!

Taylored Expressions Pinterest Inspiration Post!

Hello! We have a new monthly post at Taylored Expressions called the Pinterest Inspiration Post! We can pick a project from any of the TE Pinterest Boards HERE and use it for inspiration! Today I chose this darling Thanksgiving card from the fabulous Wanda Guess!

Here's what I came up with:

I used the adorable TE set Falling For You for my card. I stamped the squirrel and acorn images and cut them out with the coordinating Falling For You Dies. I used some Carta Bella A Perfect Autumn dp and used the same layout that Wanda used. I added the leaves that were stamped onto some Candy Corn cs and then cut out with the Falling For You Dies once again. Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die and added some stitching. So fun!

Hopefully this inspires you to get in your stamp room today:) Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Thursday!

Your Next Stamp September After Party!

Hello! So how do you guys like the new stamps and dies?  Super cute, right?! I have one more project to share with you today using the new set Halloween Cuties and this fun sentiment from the set Ghostly Greetings. I also used the new Mini Ink Splatter for the background.

I stamped my pumpkins and colored them with Copics. I cut them out and popped them up over some Doodlebug Halloween Parade dp. I stamped the Mini Ink Splatter stamp several times with Orange, Green, and Purple Ink and then stamped the sentiment directly under my image panel. Very CAS!

Make sure you stop by the Your Next Stamp Blog to see more After Party projects today and don't forget, you still have time to HOP and SHOP and take advantage of the awesome specials going on at the Your Next Stamp Store!

Hello! It's time for a new SugarSketch Challenge! We have another fabulous layout for you to play along with:

I used the new set Undying Love which I ADORE! I'm a big Walking Dead fan, so this set is right up my alley:) I stamped the girl zombie from the set with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut her out and popped her up with foam tape. I used a mixture of dp-Fancy Pants Designs Oct 31 and Echo Park Apothecary. I also just love this sentiment and I think it would make any recipient smile and instantly forgive your forgetfulness:)

We have a fun September lineup of stamps and dies for you this month. We know you are going to fall in love with the new dies and our harvest characters!!!

For my first project, I created these darling lollipop covers using the YNS Lollipop Cover Die and these adorable ghosts from the new set Halloween Cuties. I added the little faces using the YNS Fun Faces Clear Set. The sentiment is also from a new set called Ghostly Greetings and I stamped it onto a Fishtail/Banner Die. Super simple!

Next up I have a fun Thanksgiving card using the new set Gobble Gobble along with the new Wood Grain clear stamp.

I stamped the adorable turkey image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut it out with a Circle Nestability and used the Deconstructed Sketch #165 for my layout. The Wood Grain panel was stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink and I sponged over it with some Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink which is hard to see in my picture:) The sentiment (also from Gobble Gobble) was stamped onto a Fishtail/Banner Die once again and I added the maple leaves that I cut using a YNS Whatnot Seasons Set One Die.

Taylored Expressions September Release Day: Test Tube Caddy with You've Been Framed!

Hello! It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the new products are available NOW in the Taylored Expressions Store!

For my final release project today, I used the fabulous new Test Tube Caddy Die (LOVE!!!) and the coordinating You've Been Framed Dies! I put my caddies together using Oreo cs and then decorated them with some Hocus Pocus dp. I cut the You've Been Framed dies to decorate the front and added the fun tags using the new set Little Bits of Halloween and a Tag Stacklets 1 Die. I filled my Test Tubes with yummy candy corn. These really go together so easily and I think they will be just perfect for school treats this Halloween!

I love these fun sentiments:) We will continue to release seasonal frames to go with the Test Tube Caddy so you can use this die for several different holidays/occasions!

My first project today uses the new Sack It-Frankenstein Die Set! I used some Peapod cs as my base and some Oreo cs for the hair, stitches, and mouth.

Such a fabulous sketch! Jen rocks:) I stamped the sentiment from Big Bold Halloween with black and orange ink and cut a frame for it using a TE Instant Photo Frames die. I added the fun ghosts using the new Little Bits Ghosts Dies and the dp is from the TE Hocus Pocus Paper Pack. I also used some Sugar Cube, Oreo, and Peapod cs.
