YNS Sketch and Color Challenge #96!

12:00 AM 1 Comments

Hello! I wanted to share the card I made for the YNS Sketch and Color Challenge #96! I once again used both the colors and the sketch for my card today:




I used the ADORABLE Autumn Animals Stamp Set because I was inspired by the apples in the inspiration photo, and this cutie is holding an apple! I stamped him with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copics. I don't have the coordinating dies, so I stamped the stump directly onto my square panel, and then stamped it again on a separate piece of cs and cut out the trunk image only so I could pop it up with my raccoon. I cut the raccoon out with my Scan N Cut 2. 

I used various dp for the background and then added some Rainbow Sparkle Gumdrops to complete! Very simple! I will leave a complete supply list below.


We hope you'll play along with us! Just link your creation HERE for your chance to win a YNS Store Gift Certificate!!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Your Next Stamp August Feature Day-Monochromatic Cards!

12:00 AM 4 Comments

Hello! It's time for the YNS Feature Day and this month we were challenged to make a monochromatic card! I decided to use one of my favorite sets-Totally Narly and stuck to the blue color family.

I started by sponging my background using the Bubbly Stencil from Taylored Expressions. I then used the Your Next Stamp Wave Panel Die to cut a piece of navy card stock and layered that over my bubbles. I stamped two of the adorable creatures from Totally Narly with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I then cut them out with the Totally Narly Die Set. I replaced one of the panels from the Wave Panel Die and heat embossed the sentiment using VersaMark and Zing! White Embossing Powder. Finally, I added a few Rainbow Sparkle Gumdrops and it was complete!

You can see all of the Monochromatic projects on the Your Next Stamp Blog, and make sure you leave a comment on the YNS Blog for your chance to win a Stamp Set of Your Choice!!!


Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!

I stamped my image with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I then cut her out with the coordinating Monster Cheers Die. I added some stars and some new Rainbow Sparkle Gumdrops to my scene. Finally, I heat embossed the sentiment using Zing! Opaque White Embossing Powder.

Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #95!

12:00 AM 0 Comments

Hello! I wanted to share the card I made for the current Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #95! I used both the sketch and colors for my card today:




I used the adorable Funny Farm Crew Stamp Set for my images. I stamped them with Black Olive Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I added a little die cut flower to the sheep and used a Vintage Holiday Gumdrop for the center.

I cut an oval out of some dp that looks like a weathered fence and then added the grass cut with the Stitched Grass Die. I used dp from the MFT Tiny Check Paper Pack for the background, and then heat embossed my sentiment directly onto the dp.


We hope you'll play along with us! Just link your creations HERE for your chance to win a YNS Store Gift Certificate!!! Happy stamping!
