Summer Fun Series - Your Next Stamp - Happy Hour!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Have you been able to catch the fun Summer series the YNS DT have been sharing? If not, be sure to stop over on the YNS Blog to see all the fun creations we have been doing.

Today is my day to share with you my card.  I have had some fun beach times this Summer and it always included a little happy hour with friends.  I couldn't resist using the YNS set of Happy Hour to create this beach scene.

I started with sponging in the background with some distress inks and then spraying lightly over the top some homemade pearlized water that I made. It's hard to tell in the picture, but there is a lot of shimmer to this card.  I used the fun coconut drink from the set and cut it out using the coordinating dies. I also stamped and cut out the cute umbrella for my drink and popped them up in the "sand."  I cut out the sun from the set of Waddles Beach Fun for my sunset look.  The sentiment was stamped directly onto the card base.

For this fun series, you can win a $25 gift certificate to the YNS store and a friend can win $10 to the store! How you ask? Head on over to IG and start tagging your friends on the YNS post. Wouldn't it be great to win a $25.00 YNS e-gift card for yourself and win a $10.00 YNS e-gift card for a friend??!! IG posts will be up before 8 am est each day. Leave all your IG comments on the summer series posts by August 11th at midnight est to be entered in the draw. Winners will be announced on August 12th.

The Cat's Pajama Stamps July New Release and Blog Hop

The time has arrived! The July new release and blog hop for The Cat's Pajamas Stamps is here.  I hope you all were able to join in on the sneaky peeks and left a little love for the Kitty Cat Pack either on their blogs or IG account for your chance at winning a TCP gift certificate. If you arrived from the ever talented Cristena, then you are in the right place.  If not, start here.

There are so many fun holiday stamps being released that I had a hard time wanting to use just one set! So I decided to use a few sets and create some tags.  I love making tags and use many during the holidays, so it was fitting for me. 

How adorable are these sets? The new Great Outdoors stencil was used for the background of the gnome and yeti.  This stencil is so awesome with the many different uses you get from this one stencil.  Did you happen to see that fun little brush? Yep! It is TCP's new FABULOUS blending brush for all your inking projects.  The best part is that not only is it easily cleaned that you could get away with just this one brush for your colors, but it includes this awesome little cover. I am addicted to it! And the price point! Wowzer! It will not break the bank.   The other sets used is Gnome Peeking, Yeti Christmas, and Sketchy Santa.

Once the background was brushed on, I added the image to be colored in with the sentiment.  For the tag shapes, I used the Rectangular Stamp Die, the Wish Duo Tag die, and the Spring Tag Duo.  Each tag was finished with some coordinating ribbon and some fun Hole-less sequins. 

Thanks for hopping by! Your next stop will be the awesome Beata! Have a great week!

The Cat's Pajamas Stamps - July Sneak Peeks Day 6

Hey hey hey! It's day 6 for the sneaky peeks with The Cat's Pajamas Stamps!!

Today's focus is on this adorable set called From Us to You.  This cute and furry Swiss Family Robinson is ready for Santa to stop by.

I started with a red car base and some black polka dotted dp offset to that.  The image was stamped on a cutout from the TCP Wish Tag Duo die set and colored with Copics.  I sponged in a little yellow on the background and popped it up.  The sentiment was stamped on a scallop cutout and popped up over the corner.  I finished the card by adding some of the new TCP Hole-less clear holographic sequins. 

Are you in it to win it?  If you are, you can win a $10 gift certificate to the TCP store just by leaving a little love here or on my IG account! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great Monday!

July Sneaky Peeks - The Cat's Pajamas Stamps

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today is day 5 of The Cat's Pajamas Stamps July sneak peeks!  Today we are peeking in on the new set called Natures Christmas Tree.  Also focused is the new die called Happy Holidays.

For this card, I decided to make a shaker card using the image as a partial cut out to the shaker window.  The background is done using the trees and the snow from the set and some distress inks for a winter sky.  I filled the window with some of the new TCP Clear Holographic hole-less sequins and finished the card with the sentiment cut out and a few more sequins on the out side.

Are you In it to win it?!   Be sure to leave a little love here or on my IG account for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the TCP store! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend! To see all the awesome projects by the cat pack, be sure to head over to the TCP Blog.

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you all are ready for the holiday and fireworks while celebrating this great country! Today is a new TCPTUES and it is all about Christmas in July.  There are so many fun, cute, and funny Christmas sets in the TCP Store that is sure to help get your holiday spirit in check.  If you haven't seen them all, be sure to head to the store!

For my card, I decided on a CAS card using the Big Holiday Words set and the Beard Die for this fun, yet easy card that can easily be mass produced.  I like to make CAS cards during the holidays for exactly that reason of being able to mass produce and get those cards cranking!

I used my MISTI to place the sentiment where I wanted it and popped up the beard below it.  I added a few Holeless Silver Saucer sequins to the 'O' for an added element.  The card was finished by adding two thin black cardstock strips along the side.

There is an awesome sale going on right now over at The Cat's' Pajamas Store! Be sure to stock up now on all your favorites!
