YNS August DT Dare

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
Color Me Happy

What a fun theme!

I started coloring the sweet Yummy Cupcake Bunny image and got to thinking that it would be fun to not color it and allow the sweet little recipient of this card get the joy of coloring the image!  Perfect with the theme in mind!!

Coloring always makes me happy!!!

Here is the sweet birthday card I created:
The sweet little bunny is just too adorable!!  I love the sentiment that comes in the set as well!!

I stamped the image and sentiment on a piece of white cardstock, that I die cut using the new Stitched Scallop Rectangle Dies!

Behind the scallop die cut, I place a plaid piece of paper from the awesome new Birthday Girl Paper Pad!!

I adhered a piece of Cotton Candy Divine Twine around the crayons I added to the card, along with a button!

I finished off the card by adding some Pretty Peacock Matte Gumdrops!!  I love these new gumdrops!!

CAS Birthday


Hello Stamping Friends!


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

I first created my own background, by stamping the Jumbled Numbers 6x6 background stamp with VersaMark Ink onto a piece of white cardstock.  I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder!  I used distress inks to add color to the cardstock.
I finished by adding a strip of white cardstock and die cutting the fun Jumbo Mixed Font Happy Birthday for my sentiment.  I absolutely love the mixed fonts!!  So fun!!

I think this makes for a nice masculine card!!

Happy Holidays


Hello Stamping Friends!

Can you believe tomorrow is the last day of the month!  Yikes!

I just couldn't let the end of July go by and not create a Christmas card!  With the recent release from Inspired By Stamping I really fell in love with the Happy stamp set!

Check out the entire set:
Inspired by Stamping Happy Stamp Set
So many uses, in this one set!!  So awesome!!

I was so excited to use this stamp set to create an elegant holiday card:

I started by finding a piece of pattern paper that I wanted to use.

I then created my sentiment stripe, I stamped the 'happy' in green ink and then stamped the 'holidays' in red.  I added some twine around the left end a few times and adhered it to the pattern layer.
I finished off the card by adding the sparkly flower, with a button and twine in the center.  I also added some rhinestones to the top right corner.

I just love elegant Christmas cards!

Have a lovely day!

I stamped the 'Thanks' from the Whatnot Sentiments Set Ten stamp set with Black Olive Ink!
