Just For You - Your Next Stamp Friday Fun Project

Happy Friday!!

I hope you all had a great week and ready for another fabulous weekend.  We have had some beautiful weather lately, but it is sadly coming to an end and back to the heat and humidity.  At least I will be indoors and STILL be putting my craft room together. :)

Today is another Your Next Stamp Friday Fun Project to share with you and I am sharing a card using Tobi with a rose.  Another super cute image that is made into a clear stamp with coordinating sentiments.

I stamped the image on some X-press It paper with black Memento ink and colored in with Copics.  I used some patterned paper from MME for the background and some scraps from Echo Park's Sweet Girl for the fishtail banners.  The card was finished with a small pearl and rhinestone.

Thanks for stopping in today and be sure to see the other fun projects from the DT.  Have a great weekend!

Exciting news - Friday Sketch Challenge

Good Evening everyone!

I have come up for more air amongst our boxes but I am happy to report that we are about 90% done! Whoo hoo!! I will be happy when it is 100% done and put under our belts.  My craft room is always left for last, as I cannot live in disarray in the home. :) My OCD goes into overdrive... LOL!  But, soon, I will be crafting again and I cannot wait!

I am so excited to share with you today that I am part of the Friday Sketch Challenge DT! Christine and her team are fabulous and I hope you check out the site and play along.  This past week, they had a new sponsor to share in with the new sketch - Faery Ink! And this is my take on the sketch using this adorable image of Fairy princess queen boots.

This image was printed on X-press it paper and colored in with Copics.  Using some patterned paper from Echo Parks Sweet Girl, I was able to take a fun sheet in the pack that happened to have some fun circular patterns that I could use for the corners.  The image was then popped up and finished with some green pearls and some rhinestones. 

We hope you are able to play along and enter your creation for a chance to win 3 digi's of your choice from Faery Ink.  Thanks for popping in and have a great weekend!

Your Next Stamp July Release MEGA Hop

Hello and welcome to our July Your Next Stamp New Release MEGA Blog Hop. The rubber stamp and digital team have worked hard to complete some awesome projects for this combined hop! We have five new stamp sets in the store and the digi team is showcasing all the digi images we currently have. If you shore-do love sea creatures, you are going to LOVE this new release! You can find all of the new goodies HERE at the Your Next Stamp Store.

For my project, I am using the ever so cute digi image of Looking Chic.  This is definitely one of my favorite images YNS carries!
I printed the image on some X-Press It paper before coloring it in with Copics.  I love long cards and haven't made one in a while, so I decided for this image, a long card was in order.  I used some MME Tea Party patterned paper for the banners before popping the image up and finished with a rose and some twine.  The sentiment is from Handwritten Sentiments.

Your Next Stamp Friday Fun Project

Happy 4th of July!!
I know it has been rather quiet around here, but I am knee deep in boxes! I am coming up for air to share with you Your Next Stamp's Friday Fun Project.  Our family has made it to our new home in VA and so far, we are settling in well.  There were a few hiccups along the way, but those subsided and we continued to press on.  :)
Today's Friday Fun project is a card using Little Sister.  This image is just darling and I really like coloring her up.
I had some fun patterned paper I picked up at Michaels and I loved the colors.  The image was printed out using some Neenah cardstock and she is inked up with Copics.  She is popped up over the patterned paper and finished with some rhinestones. 
Well, that about sums me up for now! (Back to those boxes...) Don't forget that YNS is having a huge sale with many fabulous deals.  Be sure to check them out and to check out the other fun projects today.  I hope you all have a safe and fun 4th of July.  Thanks for stopping in!
