YNS October 2013 Hop Prizes

Here’s what I came up with today:

First up is a card using the inlay technique that’s so popular right now:

GlitterInlaySnowflakes

I used the inlay technique with the red and green papers and the Snowflake Border cut out of glitter paper.  I also added a snowflake cut with one of the Winter Wishes Snowflakes Dies and a sentiment from the Holiday Diva set.

Next is a card again using the inlay technique – this time with felt:

UglySweater2

I actually made a video showing this card from start to finish and it also shows coloring on felt with Copic markers – I hope you’ll take a look:

Karen is also offering some awesome Choose Your Discount Specials in the YNS Store so make sure you take advantage of these amazing deals!
