Spring Smiles at Your Next Stamp!

    


Good Morning!
Today is a brand new Challenge Day!
It is all about a new Sketch..and here it is!

For my card today , I am using the stamp set called Spring Smiles.
Since Spring is finally here I thought this would be a good choice for this card!


I started by cutting some patterned papers from the Geometrics Paper Pad in the design of the sketch along with some cardstock. Then I stamped the envelope with the flowers onto some Copic cardstock and coloured it with my Copic markers and did a bit of highlighting in white. I cut it out with the matching dies and then finished it with a sentiment from the same stamp set and some gumdrops.

Folding Fun at YNS!

    


Good Morning!
Today is my day to showcase my creation for our
Fun Fold Series!

That being said when I started this I had NO idea what kind of card to do so I went to Pinterest for some ideas and I saw what is called a "Z" fold card. I thought it was really neat and would be perfect for my chosen stamp set called Scratch Pad.

I started by stamping the cats onto some Copic paper and colouring them with Copic markers. Then I fussy cut cut them out but this set also has the matching dies.
I cut the card, scored it and then covered it with papers from the Summer Plaid Paper Pad. Then I heat embossed the sentiment, added some Gumdrops and a little heart!

Th card actually lays flat but you can open it so it reveals a space in which you can write! It also will stand up on its own which I liked.

All the supplies can be found at YNS and while you are there check out all the wonderful new releases from March!

Coffee Lovers Unite!!

 


Its my favourite time of year again!
Time for the Spring/Summer Coffee Lover's Blog Hop!

Your Next Stamp is an AWESOME sponsor of this Hop and today I am sharing 
a card I created using the COFFEE CUTIES Stamp and Die Set.

I stamped the image onto some watercolour paper and coloured it with my Daniel Smith watercolors. Then I cut it out using the matching dies. For the base I covered half of it in patterned paper and then cut some kraft with the Curved Scallop Edge Die.
Lastly, I added some of my favourite Gumdrops!
 These ones are called The Perfect Blend. (Perfect for this Hop, right?)

Your Next Stamp is a Super Sponsor of this event, AND
you can join in all the fun HERE!
The Hop runs from March 19th to the 26th!

Thanks for looking and Happy Hopping!

Cool Inspiration Day at YNS!

    

Good Morning And Welcome to a 
Challenge Day
from Your Next Stamp!
Today we are challenging you to a "Cool Inspiration" Project!
and here is the picture for some inspiration!

For my card I went with the stamp set called Happy Cat. I am pairing this stamp set with the gift card Holder Die set, the matching dies and some gumdrops! 
This is the front of the gift card holder which I cut out using the perfect die set. It was SO easy! You just glue it in two spots! I covered the holder with some patterned paper, stamped the cat onto some Copic paper, coloured it and cut it out. (Using the perfect matching dies!) Then I stamped the sentiment and added some gumdrops.

For the inside, I also layered some patterned paper and cardstock and stamped the little gift card image.
There! All done!

You can find ALL the sets HERE.

I am using a very pretty set called: Sweet Humming Bird
