Your Next Stamp - February Release and Blog Hop


Good evening everyone!  I'm so happy you joined us for the Your Next Stamp    February release blog hop!  We have lots of cute and fun stamps and dies for you this month and I know you're going to love them!  The entire release is available now in the YNS Store.

Make sure you hop around to all of the blogs featured in the link list located at the bottom of this post for inspiration using the new products!  Also remember to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win a YNS Gift Certificate! 




For my first card I used Sprinkles Sugar Rush.  Isn't this bunny adorable?  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die set to cut a piece of watercolor paper and then added some water and Picked Raspberry distress ink.  I colored the bunny with copics and then cut her out using the coordinating die set.  I used the Bow-tiful Little Bows Die set to make the little blue bow.  I added some Glossy Accents to the bunny's nose and tongue and then applied my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen to the lollipop.  I also used some sparkly gumdrops on my card.   



My second card features the Coffee Break clear stamp set.  An adorable set that combines coffee and some of our favorite animals!  There are tons of sentiments included in this set!  I colored the image with copics and then cut it out using the coordinating die set.  Again, I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to cut the flowered paper and I used the new Doily Trio Die set to cut the brown doily behind the pup.  I paper-pieced the coffee mug and then added some Glossy Accents to the pup's nose.


Karen is offering 20% off your entire purchase from February 6th through February 12th!  Be sure to stop back by the YNS Blog on February 10th for even more inspiration with the new release stamps and dies!

This little sweetie is Birthday Phoebe - isn't she adorable?  I love the Phoebe images and I'm always so happy when Karen offers a new set to add to my growing collection!   She's so perfect for birthday cards for both the younger and older girls in your life.  Of course if you pair her with some of the other images in the stamp set then she works for more than just birthday cards!  I colored this cutie with copics and then cut her out using the coordinating die set.   I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to cut my designer paper.  I used the new Doily die to cut the pretty heart doily that's behind Phoebie and I used the Bow-tiful Little Bows die set to cut the little bow that I placed at the top of the doily.  I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the balloon to give it a little sparkle.

The Challenge #59 - Sketch

Good morning!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Today I'm sharing a card I made for the new challenge over at Always Playing With Paper's The Challenge.  Each week we have a different type of challenge and this week it's a sketch.  I hope you find some time to play along with us!


 




I decided to pull out my distress inks and make a watercolor background for our sketch this week.  I cut my watercolor panel with the Stitched Rectangle Die set from Your Next Stamp.  I used the Small Snowflake Die set from Impression Obsession and cut my snowflakes from white glitter paper and then added a small pearl to the center of each snowflake.  The sentiment is from the Snow Kissed stamp set by Sunny Studio Stamps.

Adorable Elephant

Good morning and happy Friday!  This has been a very long week and stressful week so I am so glad to see the weekend roll around ;)


 
 
I used the BB Adorable Elephants to make today's card.  I fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw it and I've made quite a few cards with it so you'll be seeing more of these pop up on my blog.  I colored everything with copics and then cut the elephant and balloons out with the coordinating dies.  I used some bright papers from Doodlebug Design and kept my card very cas. 
 
Thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

Warm Wishes

Good morning everyone!  We've been having some really cold weather where I live so I thought today's card was perfect! 





I used the sweet BB Toasty Greetings from My Favorite Things.  I love this stamp set - the images are just so cute and of course I absolutely adore snowmen anyway!  I colored everything with copics and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.  I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the fire to give it some shimmer.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die set from Your Next Stamp to cut my white cardstock and I used the Stitched Hillside Borders dies from Lawn Fawn for the snow bank.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a warm and wonderful day.

Hugs, Anita

SugarPea Designs - I Dig You!

Good morning!  Today I'm sharing a card I made for an inspiration post on the SugarPea Designs Blog


 

I've been trying to get some Valentine cards made so I thought I would use this cute little gopher from the Go-pher It clear stamp set.  It's been awhile since I've used this set so I thought it was time for this fella to see some ink!  I colored him with copics and then used some Glamour Dust on his diamonds.  Wow, I hope hubby gives me some of those "rocks" for V Day this year lol!  The sentiment tag was cut using the new SugarCuts - Stitched Flags die.  I've also added a few enamel dots.   




Be sure to stop by the SugarPea Designs Blog for even more inspiration from the DT.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.
