Your Next Stamp - October New Release Blog Hop


Weren't all the sneaky peeks fabulous? The YNS DT did a wonderful job showcasing all the new releases.  Now it is time to hop and shop!




For my first hop card, I am using the new set of Tweet Holiday.  I love this image.  It totally makes me laugh because we all have that one family member like the bird under the hat.  hahaha! 






 I was inspired by Jennifer McGuire's post on partial die cutting that I wanted to create on using the YNS Evergreen border die and the new stamp set.  The image was stamped and colored in with Copics and cut out using the coordinating die.  Once I created the partial die cut background, I layered the sky area using some patterned paper using the new YNS paper collection of Holiday Joy.  The image was then popped up in the front while the sentiment was stamped across the top and at the bottom.  I finished the card with some new yummy gumdrops and some rhinestones.

For my second card, I am using the new set of Merry Mouse Eve to create this quiet scene of the season.  

I created the background using different Memento Inks and sponging them together.  Although, IRL it does blend better than the picture shows.  Before I stamped the image, I used the coordinating die to cut out a piece of a Post It note and placed it where I wanted to have the image.  From there I sponged in the color.  Once the background was done, I peeled off the note and stamped the image directly onto the cardstock.  The image was colored in with Copics while the snow from the image was stamped over in different spots so it looks to be snowing through the whole sky. I used my white gel pen to highlight the snow in the center.  The sentiment was stamped across the sky and the panel layered over a piece of patterned paper from the new YNS Holiday Joy collection. A few Silver Tinsel gumdrops were placed through the sky for a little sparkle.

  1. The Tweet Holiday is one of my faves....one out of many. I like the die cut behind twhk3cimsical birds, and I never thought to use paper for the sky, so that's a super wonderful tip for me. Thanks.
