Your Next Stamp-Holiday Song Birds!

12:00 AM 0 Comments


Hello! I have a sweet card to share with you today using one of the new holiday stamp sets from YNS called Holiday Song Birds! I just love these cuties! I stamped my image with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copics. I then cut it out with the Holiday Song Birds Die Set

I paired them with the Pine Tree Branch Die and used the Snowball 6x6 Stencil to create my scene. For the sentiment, I used the Hugs Word Die Set and then framed the card using a Stitched Rectangle Frames Die. So super cute! I hope you're enjoying the holiday season! I feel like it's flying by! Thank you for stopping by and have a great week:)

The tag was cut with the Cool Tag Four Die Set. I attached the tag to a cute little cauldron that I made. I'm having so much fun with pottery and love attaching cute tags to my creations!

Hello! Today we are shining a spotlight and the set Coffee Cart! This set is currently on sale for almost half off, so take advantage while you can!

I stamped him with Black Olive Ink, colored with Copics, and cut him out with the coordinating Coffee Cart Die Set (which is also almost half off!!!) I added a strip of dp from the YNS Just For Fun 6x6 Paper Pad and had him peek out over the top. I stamped the sentiment directly on the tag and it was complete!

Your Next Stamp-Happy Cat!

2:12 AM 0 Comments


Hello! I'm sharing an extra project today using one of the new release stamp sets-Happy Cat! I just think he is adorable!!! I love this set because you can choose from several different images to have this cutie hold up, and today I chose the fun cake image:) I stamped my images with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copic markers. I then cut them out with the coordinating Happy Cat Die Set.




For the background, I used the Confetti Panel Die as a stencil to sponge the background confetti, and then cut out the circle with the Circles Die Set. I sponged the circle while keeping the circle in the die which gives the white edge. Finally, I framed the cute scene with a Stitched Rectangle Frames Die. I really love how it came out and I hope it gives you some inspiration!
