YNS May Release Hop!!

Saturday, April 30, 2016



Who's ready for some fun new products from Your Next Stamp? All of the May Release is now available in the shop and we are kicking things off with a fun Blog Hop! 


My first project using a fun new set called From the Heart. I stamped the images onto a piece of White card stock with some Ombre' Neon inks. Then I die cut the panel using the Large Stitched Rectangle die. I die cut a second panel from a piece of Black card stock and adhered them both to a top folding White card base. 


I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto a piece of Black card stock and heat embossed it in White. Then I adhered it with some Foam tape. I added a few Candy Corn and Mermaid fun gumdrops. 

My second card using the adorable new set Cute Gnomies and the coordinating dies. Gnomes are like Unicorns.. you can never have enough sets of these! 


I started by trimming a piece of White card stock down to 3 3/4 by 5 1/2 then I die cut one of the Peek a Boo windows from the panel. I set that piece aside while I stamped the Gnome image onto some White card stock and colored it in with Copics and die cut it using the coordinating dies. Then I die cut the Banner from the new Garden Word Critters set and stamped the sentiment. I adhered the banner behind the Gnome image and adhered them to the front of the window. 


I added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to a piece of watercolor paper and then I spritzed it with water and dabbed it off with a paper towel after it dried I adhered it behind the window opening. I created a top folding White Card base and stamped the new Striptastic Diagonal stamp along the edge with some Black ink. I adhered the image panel to the card front with some Foam tape. For an extra pop of color I added some of the Blue Gumdrops from the Love Earth set

YNS Feature Day!

Sunday, April 24, 2016



It's time for our Feature Day at Your Next Stamp and this Month we are creating a Scene!! 


I used the adorable set Waddles to the Rescue and the coordinating dies to create a fun fire rescue scene. I created the Background using a Brick stencil and some Distress Inks. For the sky and ground I masked the area off with some painters tape and used the Distress ink with a mini blender tool. Then die cut the panel with a Stitched Rectangle die


I die cut a window and stamped the cake image from the Waddles set and colored it in with Copics. I added the image panel behind the window and adhered it to the main panel. I trimmed off the excess hanging off. I stamped the Waddles images and colored them in with Copics and die cut them out using the coordinating dies. I stamped the sentiment on the lower portion of the panel and added a few clouds die cut from the Puffy Clouds die set


I adhered the focal panel to a White top folding card stock. Head over to the YNS Blog for more fun inspiration from the team. Leave a comment while you are there for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice.
