Thank You - TCPTUES329 - The Cat's Pajamas

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend and were able to get a little crafty.  Have you seen the latest TCPTUES?  It's all about 'Thank You's' and hope you are able to play along with us.
For my card, I am using a few different elements to create this CAS thank you. Using the stars stamp from the Winter Style set, I stamped and heat embossed the stars with both a silver embossing powder and a translucent silver glitter embossing powder for added sparkle.  I enhanced the stars by adding some glitter gel pen around some of the stars and stamped in Memento Grey Flannel, the sentiment in the center of the card from the Simply Said set.  For the bottom, I dry embossed just a portion of the bottom panel and added a thin strip of silver card stock above the embossed portion.  The card was then completed by adding some rhinestones throughout.

Don't forget to add your creation to the linky on the TCP Blog for your chance to win a gift certificate to the TCP Store! Thanks so much for popping in and taking a peek!

3 Colors - Your Next Stamp - DT Dare

It's time for another DT Dare with Your Next Stamp! This month's dare is to feature 3 colors.

I could not resist using the newly released Hug and Kisses paper collection and the Love and Latte set to create this CAS card of three colors.  Three colors I love together too!

Using the new Heart panel die, I cut out the white card stock and layered it over the patterned paper for a fun dotted heart look.  The image was stamped and colored in with Copics, while the sleeve was paper pieced using an embossed scrap paper I had from Bazzil.  That image was then popped up over the panel and the sentiment was stamped directly onto the center of the panel.  Easy peasy and CAS!

January Release Blog Hop - Your Next Stamp




Hi everyone!

Time to get that list out and shop for all those favorite sets you want from Your Next Stamp! That's right! It is release time and blog hop.

For my first card, I am using the new set of Love and Coffee.  I just adore this set and see myself using it quite often.



Using the new Hugs and Kisses paper, the sky was made and the Puffy Cloud border used for the clouds.  I paper pieced the mug and popped it up as if it were flying through the clouds.  The sentiment was stamped directly onto the panel.

For my second card, I used the new Cool Tag Patterns set to create this CAS love card.


Using some embossing powder, the image and borders were created.  The love was cut out using the new Love die and the paper used is flocked.  I love how this turned out.




As always, Karen has a great deal for you to enjoy for your shopping enjoyment of this release.  She is offering 20% off your order!

You will feel the love with this release and your creative mojo in sharing that love will be ready to go.  As usual, the DT have some awesome sneeks to share with you all and you don't want to miss out on the hop tonight.  Is your pad of paper and pen ready to joy down your favorites? Let's get started with this set called Sweet Little Greetings.  This is such a perfect set for cute notes and tags.  Which is why I made my card a 4 Bar size.  Perfect!






In addition to using this set, I paired it with the new Mini Envelope die and the super cute new release paper pack of Hugs and Kisses, This is a CAS card that I felt worked well in making it sweet and petite.  I stamped the sentiment on the enclosure, adhered it slightly at the top and finished it with a heart cut out included with the envelope die.  While the card panel looks as though it is set on top of the patterned paper, I actually cut out thin strips to glue along the edges.  I love the look the design of the patterned paper gave the card.

It's Your Bird-day! Your Next Stamp

Happy Friday crafty friends! I hope you all had a great holiday and now ready to tackle the New Year.  It was nice to have most of the month off from crafting, allowing me to get ready for Christmas and spend some time with family.

I am back to share with you the first Friday Challenge for me this year with Your Next Stamp.  I chose to use the color combo with the fun set of Critter Crew two.


The bird is colored in with Copics, fussy cut out, and popped up on the Cool Tags Two cut out.  The sentiment was stamped over the paint swoosh from the Paint Swooshes and Splatters set with YNS Stone Gray ink. The card was completed with a thin strip of patterned paper from Graphic 45 and some ribbon for the bow.

We hope you are able to play along with us on this challenge for your chance to win when you  upload your project to the YNS challenge page.  Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a peek!

Your Next Stamp Friday Challenge - Merry Christmas

It's another Friday challenge over at Your Next Stamp.  The sketch and color combo is so much fun and can make for some great holiday creations.

For my card, I kept it CAS to showcase this patterned paper I love from Carta Bella's Christmas Delivery collection.  That became the focus cutting out the shape with the YNS Circles with Stitching and Dots layered dies.



I then used the Christmas Words die set  for the sentiment that I ran through my Xyron sticker maker to make the words easier to stick! The card was finished with some Silver Tinsel Gumdrops and this makes for an easy Christmas card that you can punch out quickly or make multiple times.

We hope you do play along with us for you to link up your creation for a chance to win a YNS Gift Certificate! Thanks for stopping in and hope you have a great Friday!

Your Next Stamp DT Dare - CASE It!

Happy Wednesday!

It's that time to share with you our monthly DT Dare over on the YNS Blog and this month we are CASEing someone on the team.

For my card, I CASE'd a card by Laura called Hey Foxy!  I love the CAS look and I had an idea to change it up a bit using the fun Holiday Lights Die and an image from Smiley Happy Critter Crew.


The patterned paper is a newly released collection called Winter Plaid. I just love it.  Perfect for many occassions.  I stamped the image and colored him in with Copics before cutting him out.  I used the Stitched Square die for the center panel and added the Holiday lights over it and a little on the head of the cute dog. The dog is popped  up while the sentiment is stamped directly onto the patterned paper.

Be sure to stop by the YNS Blog to see all the inspiration from the team.  Leave a little love while you are there for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great hump day!

2016 In Review Blog Hop - Your Next Stamp

It's hard to believe that 2016 is quickly coming to an end.  Every year seems to pass quicker than the last, doesn't it? The DT at Your Next Stamp have come up with different projects spotlighting a favorite set that was released this year and there are some wonderful creations made!




For my card, I am using Little Notes. This set is not only cute, but very versatile when making something for someone who may need a little encouraging. Or to get better if they are under the weather.  I made this card for my son who really needed a pick me up and just didn't think he was so "awesome." Well, I of course, do think he's awesome and I wanted to be sure he knew. :)







 Using white card stock for the base, I knew I wanted to keep this CAS since it was for a boy. No frills for my little, that's for sure! Some patterned paper from Crate paper was used, while I used some brown colored card stock to cut out the clipboard to adhere the "paper" to. The paper image was stamped with YNS Stone Grey ink and cut out using the coordinating die set.  I stamped the sentiment directly onto the paper and cut out the clip using the same ink and die set.  The whole thing was then popped up.  I completed the look with adding the 'notes' cut out and some fun gumdrops to mix. Hopefully this will be just what he needs to perk him right up.

Be sure to continue to hop along and a leave a comment along the way.  You can win a $25 gift certificate to the YNS Store just leaving a little love.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend!

Christmas Tag - Feature Day - Your Next Stamp

Happy Tuesday!

Today is Feature Day over at Your Next Stamp and it's all about Tags! I love making tags, so this was right up my alley.  I decided to make a tag using some of the fun holiday dies that YNS offers in the shop.

For my tag, I used the Stitched Square Frame die set for my main tag shape and size.


Using the frame, I added a Christmas tree using the Create a Christmas Tree die set with some patterned paper, some "icicles" using the Dripping Goo die, and the words at the bottom using the Christmas Words die set. Here is a closer look:


For the finishing touch, I added some glitter and Stickles to the icicles and some sparkle to the star using my Wink of Stella pen.  The string was added to the tag using some red Divine Twine.

Be sure to stop over at the YNS Blog to see all the fun creations made by the DT.  And don't forget to leave a little love there so you can be entered to win a stamp set of your choice! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great Tuesday!

If not, check out the details here so you can upload your creation and  have a chance to win a TCP Gift Certificate.  This week is the second week of the Stars challenge and I have a card with Thanksgiving in mind.


I started with a Kraft card stock base and lined the bottom with some patterned paper from AC.  Using the TCP Star Rosette cut up, I cut it out with a coordinating patterned paper and added the Grapevine wreath cut up to the center.
