Our Next Stamp March 2016 Blog Hop

Mar2016-hopbadge-547x329

Hello everyone!!  Yayyy, I love this blog hop featuring new products from Your Next Stamps makes squeal!! LOL!!

This release is super cute!!  Yesterday’s sneak peek was fun.

If you’ve been hopping along, you would have arrived from Stephanie’s blog and if you’d like to start from the beginning, you can click on over to the linky at the bottom of this post and start at Anita‘s blog.

My favorite set from this release is the Cool Easter Chick stamp set! I showcased that card yesterday during the sneak peek.  If you didn’t see it here it is.

Are you ready for my big reveal?

Take a look at my card:

Happy Birthday to you (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Little Darling Fairy Godmother, Spellbound Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Clarity Stencil Strips, Distress Inks Worn Lipstick, Spun Sugar, Scattered Straw, Old Paper, and Twisted Citron, Recollection Black Cardstock, Recollection White Cardstock, Tombow Extreme Adhesive

This card was super easy to create!  I blended the colors using the stencil then stamped the sentiment three times.  I added the gumdrops for an added finish.  Sometimes we just need really simple cards.

Happy Easter (YNS)

YNS Supplies: Cool Easter Chick, Black Gumdrops

Other Supplies: Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper, Versafine Onyx Ink, Stampin’ Up! Clear Embossing Powder, Prima Confection Watercolor

Here is another simple card but with a little bit more flare.  I did a little watercoloring and then stamped the sentiment right on top of the dried watercoloring. I added some clear embossing powder on top of the stamped sentiment before it dried to give it an extra pop after it was heated set. I added some gumdrops.

Boom!! Done!!

I have a confession:  This Happy Easter card was suppose to be my sneak peek card but I posted my Spring card by mistake.  That was my favorite card, I guess I was super excited about it.  Sorry for the confusion. 

So, what do you think?  I had so much fun creating these cards to inspire all of you and show you the versatility of the stamp sets! Which one of these items are favorite?  I would love to hear from you!

Hello everyone!!!  I’m here with the a2z Scrapbooking November Challenge.

Our new challenge is all about Holidays!!!!!  The holidays are vastly approaching us.  Are you ready with your holiday cards?  Our challenge this month is all about One Layer Holiday Cards!!  

Take a look at my card:

HoHoHo

Oh man this card was so easy to make!  Here’s how:

  1. I prep my cardstock with my powder bag so that the embossing powder wouldn’t stick to places I didn’t want it to.
  2. Then I stamped the sentiment four times with Versamark ink.
  3. I sprinkled the card front with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.
  4. Then I heat set it.
  5. I rounded the corners with my We R Memory Corner Chomper.

That was it!! Super easy and crisp!!

What do you think?  Please let me know below.

Amazing isn’t it!! I hope you love what you see and that it inspires you to join us this month. You have the entire month to create a new project and enter it into our challenge. By entering you will have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate to the a2z Scrapbooking Store. Winner will be announced on the 7th of November.  Good Luck!
