YNS Feature Day!!

Saturday, October 22, 2016

Happy Saturday everyone.. It's time for our Monthly Feature Day at Your Next Stamp! This month the Design Team are creating cards with their favorite techniques. 

My favorite technique is anything with Distress inks! I used some Picked raspberry to create a bold background on a piece of Watercolor paper. Then I die cut it with the Stitched Rectangle Die set. I adhered the panel to a White card base. Then I stamped the images from Froggie Love onto some Watercolor paper and colored them in with Distress Ink and spritzed some water onto them and lifted it with a towel for more distressing. I adhered the images to the card front with some foam tape. There's also some Glossy Accents on the necklace and bow. 

Then I stamped the sentiments onto some card stock and trimmed the ends into banners and adhered them with foam tape as well. For a pop of the White I added some White sugar gumdrops

Be sure to head over to the YNS Blog for more great projects and a chance to WIN a Stamp set of your choice!

Have a Magical Day!

Happy Friday!!! Who's ready for the weekend? We have another round of Inspiration on the Your Next Stamp Blog today using this week's Challenge. There's a great Sketch and Color Combo to choose from or you can mix them up together. 

I'm using the Sketch this week and the Magical Unicorn Stamp & Die set

I used the shapes and image as the squares in the Sketch.. So you could say this is my take on it..lol I created a blue background on a piece of watercolor paper with some Tumbled Glass Distress ink. The I die cut the Panel with the Large stitched rectangle die then I adhered the panel to a Black card base. I die cut the rainbow and cloud images using the Rainbow Fun and Puffy Clouds Die sets. 

I colored the rainbow stripes and added some shading to the clouds with Copic Markers and then I adde some Clear Wink of Stella to the rainbow stripes. For some extra shine I added some Glossy Accents to the rainbow and the unicorn horn. I stamped the unicorn onto some White card stock using the YNS Olive Black ink and colored it with Copics. I used the coordinating die to cut it out. Everything is adhered with some Foam tape. 

I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of Black card stock and heat embossed it in White. Then I used the Fishtail/Banner Die one set and adhered it over the clouds. I wanted some more blue so I added some of the Cosmic Crush Sparkly Gumdrops around the background. 

Head over to the Blog for more projects from the Design Team using this week's Sketch and Color Combo. Be sure to join the Fun for a chance to win a $15 GC to the YNS Store.. If you are picked and your project uses YNS products you can win $20. 

Have a great weekend!

Happy Mail Swap Box Peek!

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

Hello everyone... Today I'm sharing a peek at my Swap box for the Right at Home Fall Happy Mail Swap. I can't wait to see more peeks of what everyone put together. 

I created two sets of cards for my box using the Right at Home Grateful Heart set

This first set are full A2 size cards and my second set are mini 3x3 note cards perfect for a 
quick Hello. 

I like to reuse packaging.. I'm kinda weird like that. Ha Ha so I reused a box I had on hand and some tissue fluff for the inside of my Swap Box. 

I filed my box with some cute things perfect for Fall and I knew a little about my Swap partner so I was able to personalize it a little. 

I added some Starbucks Coffee and some Boot Socks I found at Target perfect for those Fall days. And this bottle of Nail Polish from the new Essie line Playing Koi. It's the most Gorgeous shade of Rust. I wanted one for myself but I resisted.. Ha Ha 

There's a scented candle in a tin and this cute ceramic pumpkin. This would be a cut decoration for her craft space or just an addition to any Fall decor. Not pictured is some Candy Corn M&M's because you gotta have a little something sweet! 

I hope everyone is having fun putting together their boxes. Head over to the Right at Home blog for a look at more boxes going out. Maybe one of them is yours! 

Have a great day!

Too Cute to Spook!!

It's time for our Designer Showcase at Your Next Stamp. This month it's all about Halloween Party Projects. The Design Team are creating lots of fun projects for all your Halloween Party needs. 

I created some fun party favor boxes with the Fab-Boo-lous stamp set and coordinating dies and some Coffin boxes I found at the Target Dollar Spot. 

I assembled each box and filled them with some Hershey Kisses and then I decorated each box using the images from Fab-Boo-lous and the Spider web die from the Happy Hauntings Die set. I stamped the images and colored them with Copics and then I cut them out with the coordinating die cuts. I adhered them over the Spider web on each box with some foam adhesive. Then I stamped the sentiments onto some White card stock using Black Olive Ink and die cut banner shapes with the Fishtail/ Banner one die set. 

 For an extra pop of sparkle I added some Sparkly gumdrops in Give Thanks to Sparkle, Licorice & Tinsel. The sentiment with the Bat image is stamped onto a Puffy cloud from the Puffy Cloud die set. 

Head over to the YNS blog for more great inspiration and be sure to stop by each day this week for more projects.

I'm a little late with my Challenge post this week sorry about that. There's still time to play along with Challenge #49 for a chance to win a $15 GC to the YNS Store and if you're project is pick and you used a YNS product on your project you win and extra $5. Whoo Hoo!! 

We have a fun Sketch and Color Combo you can choose from or mix them up on your project. This week I decided to use just the Sketch and the super fun Mother Hen set

I created a background using some Pattern Papers and the Stitched Rectangle & Notebook Edge dies onto a Yellow card base. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Birthday Chickie stamp set in YNS Black Olive ink. Then I stamped the Hen image onto some watercolor paper and colored it in with some Misson Gold Watercolors.

I die cut the hen image once it was dry using the coordinating die and then I adhered it to the card front with some foam tape. For an extra pop of White I added some Milk & Cookies Matte Gumdrops
