YNS May Feature Day

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's Feature Day at Your Next Stamp!!

Feature Day Theme Is....
Artist Inspiration

I found inspiration from Jackson Pollock!

He was well known for his unique style of drip painting!  As well as ink splatters!

I love abstract art!  In collage, while getting my Graphic Design and Art degree, I did a lot of abstract art designs!  So I was inspired to created a fun abstract background for my card today using some fun stamps!!

Here is the painting I found inspiration from:

He tended to use dark colors!  I prefer bright fun colors, so I decided to just find inspiration from his style and create a fun bright birthday card!

I used the Mud SplatterGot Mud? and Paint Swooshes and Splatters to create the background for my card:
I think it turned out really fun! A great masculine birthday card, in my opinion!!

I used the Holly Berry RedPumpkin OrangeSunflower YellowOlive Green and Blue Curacao ink pads to ink my stamps with!!

To stay with his darker style, I decided to die cut the 'Happy Birthday' from the Scripty Happy Birthday Die Set in black paper and add it to my background!  I like how kind of blends into my background!!

I finished off my card by adding a few Gumdrops by the sentiment!!

Sympathy


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a sympathy card to share with you using fun dies from Frantic Stamper!!


As always, sympathy cards are so hard to make!  I really like a lot of the dies Frantic Stamper has to offer, as they really help in making these types of cards a little easier.  

I decided to keep the card as clean and simple as possible, so I went with white on white for the most part.

I used the Deepest Sympathy die cut for my sentiment!
I then used the Large Calla Lilies to create the beautiful bouquet of lilies at the bottom of my card!

Best Mother


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a beautiful card to share with you using fun dies from Frantic Stamper!!


Since today is Mother's Day, I thought it would be very fitting to post a lovely 'Best Mother' card for you!  I just love how this card turned out!

I used the gorgeous Elementals #18 - Stitched Bracket Squares, as well as the coordinating Bracket Squares In-Betweens!
So elegant and gorgeous!!  I just love how it turned out!  The added flowers and swirly pearls add the perfect touch, in my opinion!

YNS Challenge #64

Hello Stamping Friends!

Time for a new challenge at Your Next Stamp!!

Click here to find the current challenge!
There is a fun sketch and colors to find some inspiration from!!

-----------------

I found some inspiration in some of the colors and followed the sketch!!

The inspirational colors instantly made me think of the fun Magical Ponies stamp set!  So I used my Copics to color one of the ponies!  I then used the coordinating Magical Ponies Die Set to die cut the image out!!
Such a fun image for a little girl's card!!  Wasn't sure if I was going to use this as a Birthday Card or a card to give my niece or daughter just because.

So I used the fun 'Wishing you a magical day!' sentiment from the set, which I stamped in Black Olive Ink on the stitched die cut banner from the Cool Tag Two Patterns Die Set!  (I love the banner from this set so much!!)

I finished off my card by adding a few sparkly Gumdrops!!

I used the previously released Nested Stitched Stars to create the opening for my shaker window!!  Perfect for a Birthday card!
I used the new Jumbo Mixed Font Happy Birthday die set for my sentiment!  I absolutely LOVE this die set!!  Love the two fonts used!!  I'll be using this one a lot!!

YNS May DT Dare

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
Gumdrops

We were to use the new release stamps, dies and yummy new gumdrops!!!

I love the new gumdrops!!

Here is the card I created:
I used the fun new Good Vibes stamp set and coordinating Good Vibes Die set!

I used the new Heart and Dot Gumdrops, to add three heart shaped gumdrops!!  

I used the fun new Sunburst Panel Die also!!  But covered part of the bottom of it, with some pattern paper from the Hugs and Kisses Paper Pad, as I wanted it to look the the sunrise was only above the sentiment!  

I like to show how you can use these fun panel dies in different ways!  They don't always have to be completely used!!

Fun to put our products to use in so many ways!!

Nuts About You


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a shaker card to share with you using fun dies from Frantic Stamper!!

To create my first layer on my card base, as well as my shaker window, I used the Deckled Rectangles die set!  I really like this die set, I think this die set is perfect for masculine cards!!
I die cut the Stitched Double Fishtail Labels two times with white cardstock.  I masked up the 'I'm nuts about you!" sentiment from the Tool Time Sentiments stamp set, so that I could brake up the sentiment to put a little on each banner!

Inside my shaker window, I added a some sequins and seed beads, and also die cut a bunch of nuts from the Hardware die set on shiny silver paper to add to the mix!
So fun!!

Have a lovely day!

I decided to create a fun gift box for my mom, for Mother's Day!

Here is a look at the box:
Isn't it fun?!
I cut the box from my Cameo using absolutely gorgeous papers from the Fields of Joy Collection!!

A look from the top:
I used the Tag Builder Set #3 from Frantic Stamper to create my tag and the 'To:" sentiment!

I stamped the fun flower from the Flowers for Mom stamp set three times in Totally Black Ink!  I colored it with my Copics and then die cut one using the coordinating Joyful Flower Die set!  The other two layers I fussy cut!

I LOVE the layering of the flower!!

Front view:
On the front I stamped the "Happy Mother's Day" sentiment, which is part of the Flowers for Mom stamp set as well!!

On the left side I stamped the "You are simply wonderful" sentiment from the Blissful Blooms stamp set!!
