Hi all and welcome to my stop on the October Your Next Stamp New Release Hop! If you’ve been following the links, you should have arrived here from Kymona’s Blog. However, if you’ve just happened upon my blog, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Kendra’s Blog (links at bottom of post) because you won’t want to miss a bit of the eye candy!
I’m so excited about this release! I didn’t design any of it, but I love it all anyway! We’ve got new Waddles and Sprinkles sets and I adore those cute characters! We’re also debuting a new character – Sandy the Squirrel! Well, enough chatter, let’s get to my projects!
First up I have a clean & simple card using the new Sandy Squirrel– Autumn Greetings set:
Every so often I talk about how these line drawings sets are still great even if you don’t love to color and here’s an example of that. I used just the leaves from the set and did some really rough coloring with some fall-ish colored Copics. Then I used the Stitching Holes Die Set above and below my stamped/colored area and stitched with some rustic twine. I added the sentiment above and a few Give Thanks for Sparkle Gumdrops.
For my second card, I used a cutting file from Lori Whitlock called Tri-Fold Shadow Box Card Birthday:
I altered it with Make The Cut and turned the balloon cut out panel solid so that I could cut a window out with the new Stitched Banner Die Set. I stamped the image from Santa’s Helpers and colored with Copics, then cut out with the matching die. Before adding the image with foam tape, I used a stencil and embossing paste to make some snow in the background. I white embossed a sentiment from the same set and assembled the card, adding some patterned paper panels.
The card also folds closed and I tied it shut with some twill tape:
It doesn’t fold flat for mailing, but soon I’ll be showing how to alter it even more so that it will fold flat! Stay tuned!
As is always the case, there is a fabulous prize to be won – a $25 YNS Gift Certificate. A winner will be drawn at random from all the comments on all the blogs.
And of course we also have an awesome sale so you can get your shop on!
Now you’re off to the YNS Blog, but don’t forget to leave me a comment before you go! TFL and Happy Hopping!
