YNS New Release After Party

Hi all!  Thanks for joining me for the after party, but don’t forget you still have time to hop!  For my project today, I used Winter Greetings Scene:


This is a super easy card to make because I didn’t do any coloring – I just stamped the scene in blue ink on blue patterned paper and added some dots of Stickles to the snow.  I used some MFT Blueprints dies and a sentiment from the same set to finish it off.  Hope you like it!

And now for my projects today.  I’ve been wanting to try some mixed media projects so I dipped my toes in the water with this card:
I used the Perfect Blend scene set with some Glitz alphas for my sentiment.  I applied some gesso to a book page (so the print wouldn’t be bold) and then stamped the scene stamp.  I colored with InkTense Pencils and a little water and used Distress Ink on the edges.  Finally I mounted it on more gessoed  book paper with some cheesecloth and dark brown mulberry paper.
For my next project, I have a super cute and fun little box using the new Take Out Box die set that I helped design!!
I cut the box out of 12x12 patterned paper and assembled.  Then I tied it with some red twill ribbon and rustic twine.  Finally I attached a tag with a die cut sentiment  (both from the same die set) so you know there are treats inside!
As always, Karen is offering a fabulous hop discount! You will receive 15% off your entire order through November 27th!

Magic Inside

Hi all!  I have a card today made for the Little Tangles Shaped Card challenge:


Even though I used the set Santa's Tags, this is not a Christmas card.  It just expresses how I feel about my morning coffee!  I went with the Starbucks colors of white, green and kraft – all cut with my Zing using Make-The-Cut and the Lettering Delights cut set Love You A Latte.  I stamped the sentiment and added some doodle lines with a matching pen.  Finally, I added some rustic twine from May Arts.  I hope you like it and TFL!

Christmas Cheer FF

Hi all!  I have a Fun Friday with Your Next Stamp post for you today!  I went with the card sketch and came up with this:


Winter Fun Reindeer was stamped in black on white cardstock and colored with Prismacolor pencils.  I added red Stickles to his nose and a sentiment from Holly over his head.  The papers are from Echo Park, the twine is May Arts and the button is amuse studio.

We hope you’ll play along!  All the information you need can be found at the YNS Challenge Blog.  TFL!
