YNS Share the Love

Hello Stamping Friends!

It's DT Dare day at Your Next Stamp!!

DT Dare is....
Share the Love

With the theme in mind I decided to create a shaker Valentine's Day card, as I absolutely LOVE shaker cards!!  I love YNS's panel dies so much!!  Every time a new one is released, I just have to use it to create a shaker card!!!!

I love the new Mini Heart Panel Die!!
Isn't it a sweet little note card?!

And honestly, as I write this post, it doesn't even necessarily have to be a Valentine's Day card!  This would be a cute little card to just give your hubby or kids to remind them that you love them!!

For my sentiment, I stamped the 'I' and 'U' from the Silly Love Monsters stamp set right on the die cut panel, leaving a little space between them and colored with my Copics!
I also stamped the heart from the set  on another piece of scrap paper and colored it with my Copics!  I then used the coordinating Silly Love Monsters Die Set to die cut the heart!  I adhered it to my card with a pop-dot and then used my clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen to add some yummy glitter to the heart!!  I finished it off by adding some Glossy Accents to the top!!

I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!!  The heart is so pretty!!!


Be sure to check out the other DT projects on the YNS Blog and leave a comment for your chance at winning a stamp set of your choice!!

Rawr


Hello Stamping Friends!

Today I am sharing an adorable Valentine's Day card I created using stamps from the Crafty Doodle Chick shop!!

I love the adorable Rawr stamp set by Lawn Fawn, along with the coordinating Rawr Die Set!

When I first seen the set I instantly thought of my son!!

So I created this card for him for Valentine's Day:
Super fun and cute!!  

I just love the tiny dino!!  

I used a set of my circle dies to die cut an opening near the bottom left corner of my white cardstock layer, so that I could added some fun pattern paper behind!  And then added the dino and 'rawr' speech bubble!!
I decided to stamp the 'rawr means' and ' in dinosaur!' in black ink and then stamp the 'i love you' in a teal ink!  I love the look!!  All three parts of the sentiment are from the Rawr stamp set!  

I just love these tiny stamp sets from Lawn Fawn!!  So happy CDC carries them!

Be sure to check out all the lovely products the Crafty Doodle Chick shop carries!!


Have a lovely day!

Hello Stamping Friends!

 It's preview day at Your Next Stamp!!!
Which means tomorrow is release day!!

This time of the month is always so exciting!!

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

Today I am featuring the new Beary Special stamp set!!

It is so very adorable!!  Made me think of my sweet daughter!!

So I created this card with her in mind:
I used the coordinating Beary Special Die Set to die cut my panda bear out after coloring with my Copics.  My daughter loves panda bears!

I used the Circles with Stitching and Piercing Marks Die Set to die cut a circle from white cardstock, which I embossed with one of my heart embossing folders!  I then used the Doily Trio Two Die Set to die cut one of the doilies to put behind the embossed layer!

MCT Make it in Minutes


Hello Sweet Stamping Friends!

I'm joining in the post today on the My Creative Time Blog!

Today's theme is...
Make It In Minutes

I admit; clean and simple cards can sometimes be hard for me to create!!

So I decided this would be a great challenge for me!  As CAS cards can be absolutely beautiful!  

So I grabbed the lovely I Adore You Kit!!  As I am just smitten with this set!!

I created these two cards within minutes:
I honestly think it took me longer to cut the card stock, pick out my pattern paper and die cut the hearts then it did to put the cards together!!

These heart dies are so much fun to work with!!

The possibilities are endless...
I even stopped myself from adding gemstones, which was very hard!!  But am really happy with how these quick cards turned out!!

Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time Blog 
to see more wonderful inspiration from the DT!

Have a lovely day!

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

I created the background with some of my new Distress Oxides I got from Santa!!

I then randomly stamped some snowflakes from the Snow Much Joy stamp set with white ink!
I used the Scallop Circle Die Set and the Circles with Stitching and Piercing Marks Die Set to create the layers behind my adorable little snowman!!

The cute snowman is part of the Hot Cocoa Phoebe stamp set! I used the coordinating Hot Cocoa Phoebe Die Set to die cut him out when I was finished coloring him with my Copics! 

The fun 'There's snow-one like you!' sentiment is part of the Little Darling Winter stamp set!!

Sweet Birthday Girl


Hello Stamping Friends!


I have a layout and project life page to share with you using fun dies from Frantic Stamper!!

My sweet little girl turns 8 tomorrow!! So hard to believe!!

I created this layout using pictures from her 6th birthday:
I created the 'sweet birthday girl' die cut sentiment, using the Life Is Good (09936) die set for the 'sweet', Jumbo mixed Font Happy Birthday (10172) for the 'birthday' and Baby Boy Girl (10141) die set for the 'girl'!  I love the combination of the die sets to create this sentiment!!

I also used the Big Balloons (10171) die set to create the cluster of balloons!!

Here is a project life page as well to put in with my layout sharing a cluster of other photos from her birthday:

Again I used the Life Is Good (09936)Jumbo mixed Font Happy Birthday (10172)Baby Boy Girl (10141) and Big Balloons (10171) to create this title card:
Simple and fun layouts for her album!!
