Your Next Stamp Sneak Peek!!

Today is an exciting day over on the Your Next Stamp's blog.  It is the time when they share a little sneak peek of the February release.  Today if you head over to the YNS blog, you will see a full list of the design team members sharing projects today.

I created this 'four way' card using the Birthday Phoebe stamp set. I also used nested heart die set from YNS too!!


These nested heart dies are perfect for making this type of card.  I attached the present from the stamp set and it appears as though it is floating.


Enjoy our little preview of the YOUR NEXT STAMP February release. Remember to check out all of the previews available from the DT. The complete list is on the YNS blog.

Happy PEEKING everyone!

Your Next Stamp Challenge #32

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp sketch/colour challenge #32.

 

Create a project based on the sketch and/or colour inspiration. If you are working with the colours, use at least 3 of the colours. You can also add additional neutrals.

I decided to use the sketch for my project.  To make things a little more interesting, I rotated it to the left.  I used the Winter Mitten Die Set and embellished with some of my favourite twine.


Visit the YNS blog for all the details and to check out some of the DT inspiration!!

Thanks for stopping by and have fun!!

LRW - Cool Colours

Time for another challenge on the Little Red Wagon blog.  It is Brenda's turn to host and she wants us to use 'cool' colours.

I will be totally honest here.....I had a hard time with this challenge.  I know what you are thinking....what is so hard about 'cool' colours, right?  Ya got me, but it really challenged me.  To start with I didn't have any idea what type of card I was going to make and then I had the colours to deal with too.

I have discovered that I am more of a 'warm' colour person.  I pulled a pallet of papers that fit the description but then felt they were more warm than cool.  At 8pm last night I decided to just go with it and see how it ended up.

This is what I created.


Once I had everything layed out I felt it needed a little ink around the edges of the papers (you know, to warm it up, lol) and then I was happy.

I hope it falls within the challenge guidelines....and I hope you will play along too.  Be sure to link up your creation over on the Little Red Wagon blog.  Have fun!
