Its All Christmas at YNS!

Its getting closer to Christmas and I don't know about you but I never have enough time to do all the things I want and plan to get done before the big day! SO...why not have some fun!
We have a fun day today at Your Next Stamp with our Feature Day! 
This is a fun day where we are challenged to use/do certain things and this month we
 were challenged to do something Christmas!
This month we released a whole bunch of really cute stamps and dies and I fell in love with one called Sprinkles Spreading Christmas Cheer! This set features the adorable Sprinkles Bunnies and it even has matching dies to cut them out with!
I coloured the Sprinkles Bunnies with Copic markers and cut them out using the Dies. Then I embossed the sentiment on cardstock and finished everything off with some Candy Apple Glittered Gumdrops! (Love those Gumdrops!)

As an added bonus, YNS is having an "Almost Black Friday Sale" you will get 30% off!
November 22-19th!
So, join us at the YNS Blog and join in the fun!
You could win a stamps set of your choice!

November DT Dare at Your Next Stamp!

For the month of November our Design Team Dare is:  Patterned Pizzazz – use 3 or more different types of patterned paper on your creation!
Our new line up of stamps and dies made it VERY difficult for me to pick just one thing!
We were graciously sent these really cute dies from Karen so I thought they would be perfect for this challenge!
I actually had this paper pad with Gingerbread themed papers so it was perfect!
 I paired the Mini Gingerbread Boy/Girl with the new Christmas Words Die and here they are!

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!
Hope this gives you the inspiration you need to go and start your Christmas projects!
Thank you for looking!

These little birds are SO cute and are easy to cut out using the matching die set!

In addition to these cards I got a little carried away and made a couple of tags!
This one I used the Penguin Buds stamp set that was just re-released in clear!
And this tag I used the new Mitten die and words from another new die set (prob my favourite!) called Christmas Words!

 These are the stamp sets I used for the cards:
