Hello! It's time for a new Fun Friday Challenge at Your Next Stamp and this challenge is Seeing Stars!

Head on over to the YNS Blog to see all of the DT feature cards, and leave a comment for your chance to win a stamp set of choice, AND you can also play along with the challenge for your chance to win a YNS Gift Certificate!!! 

I found this adorable cat image with stars on his glasses from the Meowy Christmas Stamp Set. I decided to create a fun little alley scene by using a brick embossing folder for the background and the fun YNS Trash Can Die Set. My second adorable kitty is from the Cool Cats Stamp Set, and I used a sentiment from that set as well. I stamped my sentiment and images with Black Olive Ink and then cut the sentiment out with the oval panel from the Cool Tag 5 Die Set. Finally, I added a couple of stars that I cut out using the Photo Booth Panel Die Set. So fun!

Happy Valentine's Day!

3:56 PM 0 Comments

Hello! I have a fun little card to share with you today using more of the new release products from this month:) I just LOVE all the adorable new stamp sets and can't stop making things with them! Today I chose this super cute image from the new set Love and Hugs. I stamped the image with Black Olive Ink and cut it out with the coordinating Love and Hugs Die Set

I once again used the Floating Heart Panel Die to cut a piece of cardstock and then used that as a stencil to sponge some hearts in the background. I used the super fun new Heart Flower Edge Die to cut a piece of red cs and then a piece of green cs to create my hill and flowers. I simply cut all of the "flowers" off of the green piece and then layered the green over the red. To finish it off, I added some new The Perfect Blend Gumdrops.

That's it for me! Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Today I am taking over the YNS Blog with my project so make sure you head over to the Your Next Stamp Blog and comment for your chance to win a $25.00 YNS Gift Certificate!!! You can comment each day to increase your chance of winning!


For my 12 Days of Christmas projects I decided to make 2 of my favorite things-a Tag and a Gift Card Holder!


For my Tag, I used the Cool Tag 4 Die Set, along with the adorable snowman from the Hot Cocoa Phoebe stamp set. I just LOVE him!!! I stamped him with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copic Markers. I do not have the die set so I simply cut him out with scissors. For the background I cut out a snowy hill using the Double Pierced Hills Die Set and added a tree cut with a die from the Skating Rink Scene Die Set. I added the snowflake from an older Whatnot Die Set and finally some Winter Wonderland Sparkly Gumdrops. So cute!


For my Gift Card Holder, I used the Gift Card Holder Die Set to cut the base out of some Doodlebug designer paper. I then stamped my darling image from Fleece Navidad with Black Olive Ink and colored with Copics. I cut it out with the coordinating Fleece Navidad Die Set and popped it up on my gift card holder. I used a Fishtail/Banner Die Set One die to cut a banner out of white cs and then used my Mini Misti Stamp tool to line up and stamp the sentiment. Finally, I added a couple of Winter Wonderland Sparkly Gumdrops and it was complete!
