It's Blog Hop time crafters! That's right... it's the Your Next Stamp February Release!
This set I am about to share is the perfect one for those of you who have some sport playing kids, grand kids, or just plain love sports. What's great is that this is only set one of the series! That means there is another set. But you will need to hop along to see! :) This set is Sports Fanatic 1.
This is a CAS card to showcase the cute basketball image. I had the thought that I wanted him to be hanging off the edge of something, so I made the background to be an off center piece of card stock and "hung" the basketball from the corner. The sentiment is embossed and I left a little of the embossing powder throughout to add a little more element to the front. I used the coordinating die set to cut the image out after coloring him in with Copics.
For the second card, I used Coffee is the Boss set. Perfect to use for the telling the truth... yep! It really is the boss!
Using the soon to be released die of the Doily Trio set, I used the middle size doily to place in the background before stamping the image on the center layer and coloring it in with Copics. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the main panel and card base.
Before you hop off to check out the fabulous projects, keep in mind this sweet deal Karen is offering for the release. I have to say she always offers up a generous discount or deal for the new release. Not too many companies do that, so snatch up what you like while you can on a deal!
Don't forget to leave a little love on each of the blogs as you hop for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the YNS Store! A random winner will be chosen on February 10th.
