First Ever Your Next Stamp Blog Hop!!!

Hello!  I've been so excited for this hop and to show you some more of these adorable images from Your Next Stamp!!!  Hopefully you came here from Ryann's blog, but if not then start at the beginning which is Karen's blog!  Make sure you leave comments on all the Starlets blogs for a chance to win $50.00 in FREE stamps!!!  I will also be drawing a lucky winner from all the commenters on this blog post who will win their favorite of my 3 cards as well as a couple other goodies : ) 

First we have Skating Fun Fhiona.  Isn't she the CUTEST!!!  I colored her with Copics and actually used Glossy Accents on the ice although it isn't showing up in the picture.  I also added Diamond Stickles to all the snowflakes and put Dew Drops in the centers of the punched snowflakes.  The paper is PTI Aqua Mist and so is the ribbon.  The dp is from the K&Company Peppermint Twist Mat Pad.  I used Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #35 for my layout.


This next card uses this adorable birdhouse stamp called Little Birdie Christmas House.  I am always so drawn to birdhouses (the country girl in me), and couldn't wait to get this stamp!  I colored with Copics and added Stardust Stickles to the snow.  The paper is Chocolate Chip and Real Red, and I used SU Merry Moments DSP.  The ribbon is PTI Dark Chocolate.  Here is the inside:


The Little Birdie Christmas House set is a two piece set which features the birdhouse and this Happy Holidays sentiment that I used inside the card.  Love it!!! 

My final card features this cutie patootie snowman called Freezy the Snowman : )  He is holding his little birdie friend which is just sooo sweet!!!  I applied the snowflakes punched from my EK Success Snowflake Border Punch to the image panel, added Stardust Stickles to them and a small rhinestone center.  The blue panel is embossed with the CB Snowflake Folder.  I used Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze, and Basic Grey Figgy Pudding paper. 
Leave me a comment telling me which card is your favorite for a chance to win!  Thank you so much for stopping by, now head over to Maureen's blog for even more YNS goodness!!!

Fhiona for Queen! Just love that one - not a difficult decision for me at all - the only difficult decision is whether I finish the blog hop or run over to the shop with my card now!!! Rx

Kerri Settle said...

Ohh, I just love the last one and your choice of patterned paper to use with it. I also love the inside of the Little Birdie Christmas House card; it makes me realize just how much more effort I should put into finishing the inside of my cards!

All three of these cards are gorgeous, and it's hard to pick a favorite, but I'd go with skating Fhiona ~ I love the colors on this card, the stitching and that bow is just perfect!

That's hard to pick a favorite because I love them all...but I guess...the snowman, because I love the chocolate and turquoise combination!

Stunning cards, Kerri! Your colour combinations are fabulous, and you have such an eye for putting everything together so well. I adore your snowman card (the colours are delish) and your Fhiona card (stunning colouring), but my fave is the birdhouse card with its wonderful layout and colours. Such a WOW card! Hugs, Simonne x

Hi Kerri,

AS everyone seems to tell you, I too love your work. Its all about creativity and color combo. I just love Fhiona and the Teals and Aquas are my favorite colors with browns. SO I am immediatly in love with your Fhiona Skate card, then as I pan through I am awed by your bird house that reminds me of my Grandmother and the type of stamping she used to create (RIP). THEN I get to your Snowman! The color combos and creativity is just lovely! I am torn between the Fhiona and Snowman both. If I had to pick one........ AHHHHHHHHHH the Snowman! Love Him!!

stampinsilvia said...
