Your Next Stamp After Party Post


Hello!  I hope you guys enjoyed the Your Next Stamp new release blog hop!  I have one more project to share with you today using one of the new release images called Winter Greetings Scene.

This scene is so adorable!  I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Copics.  I then sponged around with Baja Breeze Ink.  I stamped the sentiment onto a YNS Fishtail/Banner Die and cut out the snowflake with a YNS Snowflake Die.  The dp is My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland.  Here is a close up:


The rest of the DT have some fabulous after party projects to share, so make sure you check them out!


 

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!  We are celebrating my little man's 6th birthday today-so fun!

Your Next Stamp November New Release Blog Hop!


 
 
Hello and welcome to the Your Next Stamp November New Release Blog Hop! We have several adorable new stamp sets, and an amazing new die set being released today! You can find them all NOW at the Your Next Stamp Store!

The hop begins on Julie's Blog, and if you've been hopping along then you should have arrived from Thanh's blog. If you leave comments on all of the DT blogs you could win a stamp set of your choice as well as a pack of YNS Gumdrops!
 
 
I have 3 projects to share with you today because I just couldn't stop playing:)
 
 
First up is a treat box I made using the new Takeout Box Die!  This die set is AWESOME!!!  It comes with sooooo many dies so that you can add the decorative layers, words, tag, as well as shapes for window cutouts, etc!  So many options! 
 
I chose to use the scallop circle and added the "treat" word on top.  I cut out the hearts from this set and popped them up in the corners.  I also used the layering dies to cut the dp for the sides of my box.  Finally, I used the darling tag die for the top of my box and added the "xoxo".  Here's another angle:

 
Love it!  Next I have a card using a gorgeous new image named Winter from the Darling Diva Collection:

 
Isn't she beautiful!  I paired her with some My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland dp and embossed the sentiment from the YNS set Warm Winter Wishes.
 
Last but not least I have a card set that I made using the new clear stamp set Noteworthy!

 
These images are so fun and I love the coordinating sentiments:)  I used the YNS Fishtail/Banner Dies to cut my sentiment panels.
 
As always, Karen is offering a fabulous hop discount! You will receive 15% off your entire order through November 27th!

 
 
You can also find YNS on Facebook and Pinterest.

Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month: In the Garden


Hello!  I have another card to share with you today using the Taylored Expressions November Stamp of the Month- In the Garden.  I just LOVE this stamp set and today I decided to use the fun paper lantern image. 

I stamped the image once, then masked the lanterns and stamped it again.  I cut it out with a Label Stacklets 1 Die.  The sentiment was stamped onto an oval that I cut with a die from the Band-It Die Set.  The dp is some My Mind's Eye My Girl, and I used the Deconstructed Sketch #127 for my layout.  Here is my supply list:
 

That's it for me today.  I'm about to head off to my first day of work!  I got a part time job at Home Goods-one of my favorite stores:)  Wish me luck and have a fabulous Monday!

Taylored Expressions November Stamp of the Month Blog Hop!

 
Hello!  It's time for the Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month and Key Ingredients Blog Hop!  I LOVE this month's stamp set-In the Garden.  It's full of mason jars, flowers, and paper lanterns-fabulous!  It coordinates with this month's Key Ingredients Kit which features paper from Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky.  You can also purchase the coordinating Patio Party Dies!
 
For my card, I stamped the hanging wire images and then used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the mason jars. I used Copics to color my images and sponged around the panel with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink.  I stamped three of the flowers and cut them out with the coordinating Patio Party Dies.  I popped them up with foam tape over the jars.  The fishtail panel was cut with a Banner Stacklets 1 Die, and I also stamped my sentiment onto a Designer Mini Tag Die.  I used ribbon from the Key Ingredients Kit and then tied my tag onto the ribbon.  A very sweet and simple card!

    Your Next Stamp Fun Friday

    Hello!  It's time for Fun Friday at Your Next Stamp!  This is my first time playing with the new challenge this month, and I decided to use both the November inspiration picture and the November sketch!


     
    Here's what I came up with:

     
    I pulled out one of my favorite YNS images-Apple Cutie!  I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored her with Copics.   I cut a tree out using the YNS Tree Trio Die Set and cut the maple leaf with a die from the YNS Whatnots Seasons Set One Die Set.  I stamped the sentiment from Springtime Scene onto a Fishtail/Banner Die.  I added a button, some twine, and a little stitching and called it complete!  The dp is Doodlebug Happy Harvest.
     
    Make sure you check out the YNS Challenge Blog to see more Fun Friday projects from the DT and to play along!  Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend!

    Taylored Expressions November Release Day: Discover Your Wings-In Flight and Pockets & Pages

     
    Hello!  It's Release Day at Taylored Expressions which means that all of the new products are available NOW in the Taylored Expressions Store!
     
    I have two more projects to share with you today.  First up is a card that I made with an old favorite-Discover Your Wings!  This set now has coordinating dies which have been divided into two separate sets to make them more affordable.  I am using the In Flight set of dies which includes dies for the dragonfly and the two butterfly images in the set.  There is also a die for the large flower silhouette called Discover Your Wings-Flowers.
     
    I stamped the dragonfly and cut it out with the coordinating In Flight Die.  I popped it up with foam tape over a panel that I cut with the new Label Stacklets 7 Dies and popped that up over a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.  The bg panel was stamped with the flower silhouette from Discover Your Wings, and I stamped the sentiment over it in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
     
     
    Here are my supplies:

     


    Next up I have another layout using some new Pockets & Pages products!

     
     
    My mom was down a couple of weeks ago, and I had her take a family picture of us.  It had been a really long time since we had done this, and we definitely need to do it more often!



    For my journaling pocket, I used the new Pockets & Pages Documented Stamp Set and cut it out with a Pockets & Pages Essentials 3x4 Die.  I added some journaling with a Project Life Journaling Pen which I LOVE!  The Thankful For You sentiment comes from the TE set A Bushel &  A Peck

    For the lower left pocket I added a camera that I cut with the new Pockets & Pages InstaFun Stamp Set with Coordinating Dies.  This set is so much FUN and I just adore the camera die!  I added the smile sentiment from this same set in the corner.


    On this page I just added the word Family using the new Sweet & Simple Alpha Upper and Lower Die Sets.  Don't you just love the font of this alphabet?  This will definitely be a staple in all of my scrapbooks!  Here are the supplies I used on these pages:
