Your Next Stamp Fun Friday!


Hello!  It's time for another Your Next Stamp Fun Friday!  I chose to use the June Sketch for my card this week, and since it is sooooo HOT outside, I reached for this fun Christmas Owl stamp set to help me think cooler thoughts:)  

I stamped the sentiment onto a YNS Fishtail/Banner Die and added the snowflakes that I cut with the Holiday Snow Globe Die Set.  The dp I used is My Mind's Eye Winter Wonderland.

Check out the Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog to see more Fun Friday challenges this week and to play along for your chance to win a $20 YNS Gift Certificate!  Only a few days left to play with our June challenges!

Taylored Expressions Die Focus: Wave Border!


Hello!  I wanted to share a fun tag I made using the adorable Taylored Expressions stamp set Showered with Love with Coordinating Dies along with the fabulous Wave Border Die!

My tag base was cut using Tag Stacklets 2 and I also used a Tag Reinforcements Die. I positioned my whale and the Wave Border for placement before stamping the water spout.  I then embossed the white tag with the CB Seeing Spots EF and adhered my whale and border.  The cloud was cut with a Build a Scene Swirly Clouds Die and the sentiment was stamped onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die.  I matted it over a larger tag, added the ribbon to the top and it was complete!  This will be so perfect to tie to a get well soon package:)


That's it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!

Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month!


Hello!  I'm back with another card that I made with this month's Taylored Expressions Stamp of the Month-Bright Boutique and the coordinating Hi, Hey, Hello Dies. I went very CAS this time:)  I simply cut a circle out of Choice Snow White cs and backed it with some Echo Park Paper We Are Family dp.  I cut out the phone and the "hey" using the Hi, Hey, Hello Dies and stamped the "thanks" using the Bright Boutique stamp set.  So simple!


I then used Foam Tape to pop up the top layer of the card.

That's it for me today!  I hope you guys have a great Thursday and thanks for stopping by!

Taylored Expressions and Fancy Pants Designs!


Hello!  I don't know about you, but I LOVE Fancy Pants Designs dp, so when the Baker's Dozen was given an opportunity to work with a couple of their lines, I immediately said I was in!

For my first card today, I used the Fancy Pants line Be Different.  This line is so fun and perfect for boy themed projects-YAY!  I chose this adorable image from the Taylored Expressions set Far Out and cut it out with a coordinating TE Robots die.  I added the sentiment using a Be Different Label Sticker.


So cute!  For my next project I decorated a little gift bag that I made using the Taylored Expressions Sack it to You Die:


This time I used the Fancy Pants Designs As You Wish line.  These colors are so fun and I adore this pattern from the Quilt Work sheet of dp found in this line.  

I first cut the bag out of cardstock, then cut it out of the dp. I trimmed 1/4" off of the edges of the dp to create my top layer. I added the sentiment from the TE set Sunshiny Day onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die and the fabulous button comes from the As You Wish Button Set!

Taylored Expressions and Fancy Pants Designs both have prize packs that you can win!  Just head over to the TE Blog and leave a comment, then head over to the Fancy Pants Designs Blog and leave another comment!  

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday!

Your Next Stamp Fun Friday!


Hello!  Its time for another Fun Friday at Your Next Stamp!  This week I used the fabulous June Sketch to create my card:)



I used the clear stamp set Load Up and made a Father's Day card for my hubby.  I stamped the truck with Memento Tuxedo Black and  colored with Spectrum Noir markers.  I stamped the tool box on the back of the truck and then stamped the puppies, colored them, and cut them out to add to the door of the truck.  I just love this old truck image and I think my hubby will too!

I have one final card to share with you today using the new stamp set Big Kahuna with coordinating Big Kahuna Dies!  I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copics. I cut the sand using some Carta Bella Ahoy There dp and a Build a Scene Rolling Hills Die.  I also used the Build a Scene Sunshine Die and the Ride the Wave Border Die for those awesome waves:) The clouds were sponged using the TE Cloud Border Die. So much fun!  I stamped the sentiment on the inside:
