Your Next Stamp Challenge #7!


Hello!  Sorry I have been MIA!  Time just got away from me these past few days.  I've been trying to organize my office/stamp room a little bit~although I still have a LONG way to go :)  Well, it's time for another YNS Challenge and our host is the fabulous Starlet Maylee who asked us to use embossing on our projects.  You can use dry embossing or heat embossing or both!  I almost always use dry embossing on my cards.  I just love the texture it adds!  I decided to step outside my comfort zone and heat emboss the sentiment as well :)  I used this ADORABLE image from the Shopper Fhiona set~LOVE HER!!!  The sentiment comes from Verve's Hearts on Fire set and the dp is Papertrey Ink. 


I hope you'll play along with us!  The winner by random.org will receive $10 towards any YNS stamps and the special winner blinkie. 


The top pick winner (Maylee's favorite card) will receive $5.00 towards any YNS stamps and the special top pick blinkie.  You must use YNS stamps to be considered for the Top Pick blinkie :) 


Check out all of the other Starlet's fabulous creations by visiting the YNS challenge blog HERE.


Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!

Ohhh a little shopping girl - how cute! Did it come with the hearts on her bag or did you put those on to make it more Valentiney? She's soooo cute. This card is so busy - just what I like!
