Monster House!

3:43 AM 0 Comments

Hello! I wanted to share this little project I made for fun. I was dying to put together this adorable Silhouette haunted house and when I was done, I just thought it needed a little something else, so I added this adorable monster from the Your Next Stamp Way Cool Monsters stamp set. Isn't he so fun?! I stamped him with Black Olive Ink and colored him with Copics. I then cut him out with the Way Cool Monsters Die Set and popped him up with foam tape over the house. He looks right at home, doesn't he? Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week!

Your Next Stamp Fun Friday Challenge #124-Go Long!

12:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! It's time for a new Fun Friday Challenge at YNS and this challenge is GO LONGCreate a long and thin card (approx. measurements 3.75"x9"). So much fun! I haven't made one of these in forever and I loved it! I have so many more ideas so you may see more in the near future:)

Head on over to the YNS Blog to see all of the DT feature cards, and leave a comment for your chance to win a stamp set of choice, AND you can also play along with the challenge for your chance to win a YNS Gift Certificate!!! 


For my card, I used the brand new Spooky Fun stamp set. At first I wasn't sure what I wanted to do so I just colored up a few images and cut them out with the coordinating Spooky Fun Die Set. Then I decided to sponge the sky using Pumice Stone Distress Oxide Ink and I thought it would be cute to have the owl sitting on a tree branch. 

I found this branch die in my stash and just added a strip of black cs to the edge for the trunk of the tree. I stamped the sentiment with white ink directly onto the trunk and added a moon behind the owl cut with a die from the Circles Die Set. The right side felt a little too bare, so I added the super cute bat image flying away with the pumpkin. I adore this stamp set!!!

You still have time to take advantage of this awesome deal!!!

Your Next Stamp-Full of Surprises!

12:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! I have another fun project to share today using some new products from the Your Next Stamp birthday release! I just loved this release and hope you guys did too!

I was itching to get this fun Birthday Surprises stamp set inked up:) Of course I chose the box full of cats because I am obsessed with my new kitties. I have never had a cat before, or even been around cats, but I've decided I'm a total cat person. Love these two!!!



They are so sweet, soft, and cuddly-LOVE lol!


I kept my card simple, letting this adorable image be the focus. I stamped the image with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copic markers. I cut it out with the coordinating Birthday Surprises Die Set. I sponged some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink in the background and popped my image up with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment and then added some Blueberry Blitz Sparkly Gumdrops. Super simple!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

I just had to pull out the So Many Squares Panel Die (love), and then I sponged different colors on a panel behind it to create a sort of tie-dye look. For my image I used the super fun One in a Chameleon Stamp Set. I stamped my images with Black Olive Ink and used my Scan N Cut 2 to cut them out as I don't have the One in a Chameleon Die Set.

Your Next Stamp-Card Buddies!

12:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! I have a fun card to share with you today using the new stamp set-Card Buddies! I just love how these cuties were designed to group together. They are also perfect for making bookmarks or tags:) 

I started by stamping my images with Black Olive Ink and coloring with Copics. I then cut them out with the coordinating Card Buddies Die Set. I decided to go with a birthday theme, so I used the fun party hat and balloon image included in the stamp set to dress up my characters. 

I used a sentiment from the Party Animals Stamp Set and layered everything over some dp from the YNS Spooky Sweet 6x6 Paper Pad. So cute!


I had a little help making this card:)


Mila jumped in my lap and wanted to help lol.  She's getting so big already! Love her.

I chose to use Aquarium Antics to make a CAS card this week. We don't have any fish (we have 2 dogs and 1 cat) but if we did I would hope they were as cute as this little guy:) 

I simply stamped the fish bowl with Black Olive Ink in the center of the card. I then used a separate sheet of paper to cover it while I sponged the "table" with Scattered Straw Distress Oxide Ink. I colored the bowl and then stamped the fish image, colored it, and cut it out with the coordinating Aquarium Antics Die Set. I adhered the fish to my bowl and then stamped the sentiment below. So simple!!!
