New Your Next Stamp Challenge!

Hi, everyone! How have you been? Life’s been crazy for me, but I’m excited to pop in and share a card I made for the newest Your Next Stamp challenge today. The new theme is schools out/summer. It’s getting to that time of year where we’re thinking about summer weather and every single kid I know is counting down the days until school ends for the year, so this is a great challenge! Here’s my card that I created.

ffff

I knew right away that I wanted to used this adorable kitten in a unicorn floaty, so I created a watery background with Distress Oxide inks and put him on an action wobbler to give the recipient a little fun surprise when they opened the card. Who else is ready for summer?? I know I am! Join us and create with this challenge on the Your Next Stamp blog!

How sweet is this little mouse on the mushroom? And that sentiment?? So cute. I used a Polaroid die from YNS to frame him, and did some easy ink blending for the picture’s background.

IMG_3301.jpg

I just had to use the new panel die from the March release along with the So Mush Fun stamp set! I think they’re so darn cute. I ink blended some of my favorite Distress Oxides over top of the panel die (Worn Lipstick, Shaded Lilac and Dried Marigold) and splattered it up. Then I added my die cut pieces over top with foam tape! How much fun is that?? And so springy! Be sure to head over to the Your Next Stamp blog and see the rest of the inspiration form the team.

Your Next Stamp Challenge!

Hey, everyone! I’m back today to share a card I made for the newest Your Next Stamp Challenge. The new challenge is to use pattern paper.

I used the pattern paper from the Birthday Boy paper pad to die cut one of the Stitched Scallop dies from it to use for the background. I love the pop of color and the detail it adds to the card. I also had to use the Cook Up Some Fun stamp set again for this. Be sure to head over to the Your Next Stamp blog and see the rest of the team’s cards!

Your Next Stamp March Preview!

Hi everyone! It’s time to share the March preview for the Your Next Stamp release! I can’t believe it’s March already. Where did February go? It’s all for the best though, because the March release is so fun! Let’s take a look at my project.

IMG_3102

How sweet is that cute raccoon?! I think he’s going to be adorable on some spring cards. Also, how amazing is that background panel die?!? Instead of die cutting it I embossed it into some sky blue card stock. I just love the flowery pattern and the awesome texture it gives. Be sure to head over to the Your Next Stamp blog and see the rest of the team’s creations for the preview! And don’t miss the full reveal tomorrow!

Your Next Stamp Challenge

Hi, everyone! Who else is happy it’s finally Friday!? I’m happy for the weekend and the new Your Next Stamp challenge. The new challenge is “seeing stars” and there is so much you can create with this theme! Let’s take a look at my card for today.

IMG_3001I started the card today by ink blending Peacock Feathers, Wilted Violet and Picked Raspberry onto an A2 size card panel. Then I splattered the piece with water and white paint and set it aside to dry. Once it was completely dry I die cut the Star Panel die and used the stars to create a pattern all over the ink blended panel by gluing them down to it.

Next I stamped out the cute zebra from the Magical and Magnificent stamp set. I colored it in with my Copic markers and used the coordinating dies. I heat embossed a sentiment from the set with silver embossing powder and trimmed it down to a rectangle strip.

IMG_3007

I attached both the sentiment strip and the zebra with foam tape and my card was complete! I love the bright, playful colors and the whimsical feel of this card! Be sure to head over to the Your Next Stamp blog and see the rest of the team’s fun take on this new challenge, and get crafty with us! Thanks so much for stopping by today, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!

Valentine’s Mini Series Day 5 & 6

Hi, everyone! I’m back to share days 5 & 6 of my Valentine’s Day mini series! I can’t believe how fast February has flown so far! I wasn’t planning on combining these days, but there’s not much time left until Valentine’s Day, so I figured I should get these cards posted!! 🙂 Let’s take a look at today’s projects…IMG_2641

I created this card by doing some stenciling on kraft cardstock to gets some dreamy white lines using the Heffy Doodle stencil Barber Shop stencil. Then I stamped and colored some of the cuties from the Lawn Fawn stamp set Love You a Latte.

IMG_2642

Adding all of these elements along with a blue stitched heart to a card base completed this card! I think this is a great non traditional valentine, but could also be used for so many occasions!

IMG_2644c

For my next card I went really simple and stamped out some images from the Let’s Roll stamp set by Lawn Fawn. I trimmed them out and put them on a simple background that I had die cut with the Starburst Trio die from Your Next Stamp. I used Honey Bee’s alpha stamp set to create my own sentiment for this card.

IMG_2645

And that’s it for day 5 & 6 of the Valentine’s Day series! I hope you enjoyed these cards for today. I can’t believe that Valentine’s Day is on Thursday! I’m really not ready. Hope you all have a great day, and I’ll see you again soon with another card!
