Its all about the Love!

Today is a special day at YNS because it is Feature Day!
We are inspired by anything and everything with LOVE!!
For my Feature Day post I wanted to show you what I have been busy making with a newly released AMAZING Die from the January Release called:
This little bag is perfect to put treats in it which I have done for a Valentines treat for my Girls!
I cut the boxes out and put in the little handles. Then I stamped this sentiment from the Rose For You stamp set (another set just released!) , filled the bags and put in tissue paper. Then I attached the tags with some ribbon!
Here is what everything I used
looks like!

Hope you enjoyed everything and wishing everyone a 
a great week!
Got to the YNS Blog, make a comment and you could win a 
stamp set of your choice! (Now isn't that a great present?!)

Happy Friday Everyone!
It has been a BUSY week...did you see all the new releases released last weekend?
Today is exciting because it is " Fun Filled Friday" today with a new
 Sketch and Colour Challenge

This month I decided to do both the sketch challenge and a little bit of the colour challenge and I used  the new stamp set called Rose For You!

Rose for You is such an adorable set and it even has a sister set called Cute Butt!
 This has to be one of my favourite sets of the release this month!

New January Dare at YNS!


For the month of January our Design Team Dare is:  Something Old, Something New!
Something new to us...maybe a Christmas gift and something old- you have prob had it in your craft room for ages gathering dust!
For my card I used the new stamp set called: Magic Carpet Ride and the matching dies. As well, I bought a new sewing machine with money from Christmas and I used it for some of the sewing!
The old items are papers I have had forever and gumdrops in a colour that has been discontinued.

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 new year projects!
Thank you for looking!

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge!

  Your Next Stamp is one of the sponsors for Cupcake Inspirations Challenge
This challenge starts on January 17th! 

I wasn't sure how I would incorporate the Around the World theme but I thought that since it involved cupcakes that I would make my project colourful with earth tones!
(Sounds good, right?)
 I DID know that I had to use this perfect stamp set by YNS called Jessica with Cupcakes which I coloured with Copic markers.If you know me then you know I in LOVE with YNS' Gumdrops so I added a few from the Give Thanks for Sparkle!
Here is the inspiration for Challenge #343
Around the World!

Here is what the stamp set and Gumdrops look like!

To join in this great event go to the Cupcake Inspirations Blog 
and to see all the wonderful stamps, dies

Kraftin' Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday!

I am finally getting organized and back into the swing of things after Christmas so I decided to join in on one of the awesome Wednesday challenges over at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps!

I had bought this really cute stamp awhile ago called: Birthday Girl and it is perfect for my daughters birthday coming up in February. 
I started by embossing the Girl image on watercolour paper in black and then using my watercolour paints I made her pretty! Then I created this card with my take on this months sketch.

Here is the sketch and the Birthday Girl stamp!

Thank you for taking the time to look today!
