Your Next Stamp April 2016 Sneak Peek

Hello everyone!!! I’m back again for this month’s Your Next Stamp Sneak Peek!!

We are getting ready for our April Release Blog Hop tomorrow with a sneak peek today. Are you excited? I am!!

Take a look at my card that I’m giving you a sneak peek of:

Just a little something (YNS)

YNS Supplies: From My Garden, Crystal Clear Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Recollection Heavyweight White Cardstock, Copic Markers, We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, Mini Misti

This was a super simple card to create.

I scored the cardstock with three lines.

Then I used the Mini Misti to stamp the sentiment and the basket on a separate piece of cardstock.

I used Copic markers to color in the image.

Then I adhered the basket to the card front in between the sentiment.

I added three gumdrops for the a finishing touch.

Nice and easy!

I hope I see all of you tomorrow for the April 2016 Release Hop.

{Clean and Simple} CASology 195 – Sprinkle

Second Post for today
If your looking for the Mix and Match post, click here

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Clean and Simple Cue Card just for you!!

This week’s cue card is:

Week 195 - Sprinkle

Take a look at my card:

Celebrate (CAS)

When I saw the cue card I thought of cupcakes right away!!  I couldn’t find my cupcake stamps but I ran into this Papertrey Ink Good Times stamp set that I never used.  I think I bought this last year and never inked it up.  So I thought this was a perfect time!!

Here is how I created it:

  1. Using the Mini Misti, stamped the dots on the top of the card base using Hero Arts Ombre Butter to Orange Ink.
  2. Using Versafine Black Ink to stamp the sentiment right under the ombre sprinkles.
  3. Round the bottom corners using the We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper.

Super easy, clean and simple!!

What do you think?  I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
