Your Next Stamp July New Release Blog Hop


The time is here for another new release and blog hop with Your Next Stamp!




These releases just get better each month!  You will not be disappointed with all the cuteness and fun diversity Karen puts out with each of her releases that leaves your creative mojo flowing.

For my first card I am sharing using the new set called Waddles Rainbow Fun.  Oh my goodness! Such a fun set to play with!

This card uses two images from the set along with the clouds from the new Rainbow Fun dies.  The patterned paper is from MME Hootenanny collection and completed with some gumdrops from the mermaid collection.





My second card is using the Rainbow Fun dies to create a happy and colorful scene.


I started with using some patterned paper from MME Hootenanny and layered that with a cutout using the YNS stitched square die set.  Using the Rainbow Fun die set, I cut out the rainbow using different colored card stock and the coordinating sun in two shades of yellow.  The clouds are popped up while the card was completed with the sentiment from another new set called Celebrate in Color and some gumdrops.

Your Next Stamp July SNEAKY PEEK

Happy 4th of July 


Not only is today a wonderful celebration day for our country, but it is also a day of Sneaky Peek's for the July release of Your Next Stamp and I couldn't be happier to share with you a perfect set for the holiday.  It is one called Fireworks.


For this card, I started with making my mats with the YNS Stitched Rectangles layering dies before stamping the image with Rhubarb red and Nautical blue Memento inks. The patterned paper is from Authentique.  The sentiment was stamped and placed across the center before finishing the card with some Wink of Stella over the fireworks, some NEW sparkly gumdrops, and some silver stars cutout using the Spellbinders star dies and popped up.

Be sure to check out the YNS blog for all the beautiful creations from the DT on the new release happening tomorrow!! You don't want to miss out.  Have a fun and safe holiday!

Need Coffee - Your Next Stamp

Happy Friday friends and perhaps the start to a long weekend as well! 

It's  another Friday Fun project with Your Next Stamp and I think my card I made pretty much sums it up for me on how I've been feeling this last week. :) But then again, I am quite partial to anything coffee related.  It's what makes me an instant human in the morning.



For this card, I am using the sketch for the current challenge on the YNS Challenge blog for my layout and the funny set released last month called Need Coffee? Owl.  I did replace the sentiment word of 'coffee' with the new fancy coffee word die.  The owl is stamped and fussy cut after being colored in with Copics and popped over the center stitched square frame I made by layering the next size down.  The patterned paper is from AC and I used some of the same paper to paper piece the cup. The card was completed with some new Love Me Some Latte gumdrops and some clouds from the Puffy cloud duo set.

Hopefully my card has inspired you to have a cup of coffee or tea or your favorite beverage to get your weekend started! Thanks for stopping by and have a safe and fun 4th of July!

Celebrate - Your Next Stamp Fun Project


Hey there fellow crafters!

I had a bit of a snafu in Blogger for my last Friday (yes, last Friday) Fun Project with Your Next Stamp, so I am posting this fun shaker card now. I had been so busy with my boys 6th grade promotion, family visiting, my hubby's birthday, and of course Father's Day.  It was like a 4 day party in my house! :)  With all that was going on, I did not notice this issue, so I suppose it is better later than never!


For this shaker, I used the new Whatnots Sentiments Five set for the sentiment inside and the Confetti die to make the confetti with some added sequins.  I made this in the traditional way of making a shaker by added foam adhesive and some acetate.  The patterned paper is from AC while I framed the opening with a cut out using the new stitched square layered dies.  The card was finished with some ribbon, paper flowers, twine, and sequins.  Super fun card to make and even more fun using the confetti die to make your confetti in the color scheme you desire.

Thanks for taking a peek and be sure to stop by the YNS blog to see the other Fun Projects that were in fact posted in time! :) Have a great one!

Don't Hate- TCPTUES293 Inspiration Challenge

Hello everyone!

Today is a new challenge over at  The Cat's Pajamas and it's a fun inspiration challenge from the ever talented Christine.

I just love the set called Besties.  It is a fun set to use for your bestie and perhaps a fun reminder to each other about some fun times you had and I couldn't resist using it for this inspiration.






The sentiment cracks me up and thought for my card being a bit impossible to really do in life, it made it even funnier.  I started with a blue cardstock base and layered it with black and patterned paper from Authentique's Playful collection.  I stamped and colored the image with Copics before fussy cutting it out to be popped up over the patterned paper.  I used the new stitched clouds die for the clouds and the word 'fly' from the new  stitched fly journal card frame.  I finished the card by adding a few flowers from the 5 petal posies die set topped with a rhinestone.

Be sure to stop over at the TCP blog to see all the fun and fabulous creation from the Kitty Cat Pack.  Have a great Tuesday!

Hi There! Your Next Stamp Feature Day

Hi crafty friends!

Today is the Your Next Stamp Feature Day with the DT and we've been asked to create a card using any of the YNS animals or critters. For my card, I am using the new Quirky Animals Five set .



I stamped the image on a stitched square cut out and colored her in with Copics.  I popped up the image over some patterned paper from AC Dear Lizzy collection.  To complete the card, I used some Divine Twine in Deep Pink and a cutout from the Bookmark/tag die set to stamp the sentiment on and then finished the card with some gumdrops from the new Mermaid Fun collection.



Thanks so much for stopping in and be sure to check out the YNS Blog for more inspiration from the DT and to comment for your chance to win a stamp set of your choice! Everyone loves that! Have a great Monday!!

You're So Cool - Your Next Stamp DT Dare

It'a another dare crafty friends and this time the DT was challenged to use yellow or make/use a sun in our projects or cards.  Perfect color to use as we all start to hit some really warm days and Summer peeking around the corner.  Well, for me that is.  School is not out for us here... Just over a week folks! Come on Summer!

Here is my card using the new release of Quirky Animals Five.  This set is so fun!


I stamped out the image and colored him in with Copics before using the coordinating Quirky Animals five die set to cut it out and popped him up on the chunky grass.  The patterned paper for the back panel is from Scenic Route and used a plain white background for the main panel.  I did go with the making the sun option and I think it is ok, but still not sure how I like it.  I punched out a 3/4" circle and used the new Neon Sunrise gumdrops for the rays and finished the rays with some rhinestones.  The sentiment was stamped directly onto the main panel and finished some clear Wink of Stella over the wings.

Be sure to stop by the YNS blog to not only see the other fabulous creations from the team, but if you leave a comment, you can win a YNS stamp set of your choice!! Woot!  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great Wednesday!

Dropping By - Color Challenge TCPTUES292

Happy Tuesday!

It's time for another TCPTUES challenge and this time it is a color challenge.  I was happy to be the host of this challenge by picking the fun colors to play along with.  I have summer and the beach in mind, so I couldn't resist these colors to be used.



For my card, I used an unknown blue card stock for my base which I then ran through my swiss dots CB folder for the background.  The image is from the TCP Oh Chute! set that was stamped, colored in with Copics, and cut out to be popped up with foam squares.  The clouds are the new, fun stitched clouds die set that are popped up as well. For the sentiment, I carefully inked and stamped the sentiment onto the banner image and then cut out and popped up as well.  The card was finished with some twine.

Be sure to stop by the TCP Blog for more inspiration of this color combo and to link up your project for a chance to win!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great Tuesday.

Your Next Stamp - June New Release Blog Hop

Happy Sunday crafty friends!

The day has arrived... It's the Your Next Stamp June release Blog Hop!  I hope you all enjoyed the sneak peeks yesterday and have your shopping list ready because there is a sweet deal Karen put together for your shopping pleasure.



I have two cards to share with you made with two different release sets.  And one is a great masculine (or feminine) set perfect for that golfer in your life! It is called Golf Scene.



The background sky and ground was airbrushed using my Copics and Copic airbrush system. It was first stamped and then masked to be airbrushed and the green colored in.  The panels were cut out using the YNS stitched rectangles die set with the sentiment stamped directly onto the scene.

For my second card is one using the Happy Meal set.


This set is so much fun and has a coordinating die set. I made a CAS card using the YNS stitched circles and plain circles die set.  The image is popped up and finished with some NEW fun, yummy gumdrops that you sure do not want to miss!

Now, check out the great deal ready for you to use on your shopping excursion for all the sets and gumdrops on your list!


Don't forget to check out the other fabulous creations from the DT and be sure to leave a comment along the way for your chance to win!

June Release Sneaky Peek - Your Next Stamp

Hi all!

It's time... well almost, but today is the sneaky peek for the Your Next Stamp June release.  Another awesome release full of fun and cuteness!  So start with the peeks and stay tuned this weekend for the fun new release blog hop.  You don't want to miss that and even win a prize.

For my peek, I created a fun project using the new set of  Happy Meal and the coordinating die set.  Can you just guess without looking what this set consists of? :)  It is so much fun.






So for my project, I started with those fun new bottles of soda you can find and used the YNS Bookmark dies to make the base of the tag.  The image was stamped, colored with Copics and cut out using the coordinating die before popping it up with foam dots.  I created my own little 3D banner to be at the top with the sentiment before inking up the rest of the sentiment to be broken down so it would fit onto the tag.  It was then finished with some hearts cut out from the die set, popped up, a paper straw, and some ribbon.  Ready to give!

I hope you enjoyed this fun sneak peek and be sure to stop by the YNS Blog for more fun projects the DT has come up with.  Enjoy your weekend and don't forget to check back tomorrow for the fun release hop!!
