Dare to be Plaid!

Here at YNS we are challenged each month to create something new using a specific theme!
For the month of NOVEMBER our Design Team Dare is: Favourite Christmas Combo!

If you know me, you KNOW I LOVE Christmas!! It is my favourite time of the year!
You also would know that we are a Scottish family so Plaid is a big part of decorating,
wearing and a huge love!
So, I have created this card with my favourite red plaid!
I masked the Iceberg and then coloured the cute Waddles penguin
( from the set called: Waddles Winter Wonderland)
with Copic markers. Then I attached it onto the Stitched Scallop Rectangle
Die and added the Merry and some gumdrops to the front!
The plaid background paper is from the Winter Plaid Paper Pad.

Go to the YNS Blog to see what the other DT's have made for you,
comment and you could win a stamp set of your choice!

Thanks,
Sue

Anyone want a preview???


Welcome to the NOVEMBER Sneak Peek for the new release!
Your Next Stamp has their New Release and Blog Hop
starting at 10 pm tonight!
Christmas is just 7 weeks away and YNS has some amazing
new things to help with all your Christmas projects!

Since it is SO hard to wait UNTIL 10 pm, I am happy to give you a sneak peek
and I am showcasing not only a new stamp set but a new die as well!!
The stamp is called Tweet Kindness and I stamped it on our new Drink Tag Die!!


I LOVE this new Drink Tag set and it was SO hard to pick just one thing to use with it! I am in Christmas mode so I wanted to create a tag for a wine bottle gift/thank you. This is a perfect tag to hand around a bottle of wine or sparkling cider and give it as a Hostess gift!

I stamped the image with the Black Olive Preminum Ink and then used clear embossing powder and heat set it. I then coloured the image with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush.

Even though I decided to go Christmas with this, the Drink Tag comes with additional dies and you can make these tags all year!!
 Hope you enjoyed this preview and if you would like to see more come back
tonight at 10 p.m
and then join in our Blog Hop!

There are some AWESOME things happening tonight!!!
Have a wonderful day!
Sue

Little Tangles Challenge


For this challenge I used the Into The Woods Stamp Set and Celebrate Die Set.
I used my Zig Clean Color markers to colour the images I stamped on Distress Watercolor paper. I added it to this birch die cuts and tree background paper. I then cut out the Celebrate Die and put that on as well.

Last Cat Card


I am entering a final card into the Cat Lovers Blog Hop
by Her Peaceful Garden.
I have had a whole bunch of fun creating these cards for the hop!

My card for today features a stamp set from My Favorite Things called: Cat-titude
This is one of my favourite stamp sets because my daughter loves cats and the sayings are so cute!!

 Today is a smaller card, a 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 size and I stamped the kitty with Memento ink on Copic paper and coloured it in with Copic markers. I then cut the design out with some round dies and popped it up with some foam tape on the card. Then added some ribbon on the side. 

This is a hop to celebrate cats of all sizes and shapes, since National Cat Day is October 29th.  Prizes will be awarded to randomly-drawn participants among those who link up a cat-themed project and among those who visit the linked projects and leave a comment.  
This hop runs from October 23rd until the 28th and if you join in, you could win a great prize!!
Thanks for taking the time to look!
