Your Next Stamp: December Release Bloghop!!

Hello Everyone and WELCOME to this months release bloghop for Your Next Stamp! This hop will not disappoint you, the projects are outstanding as well is are all the stamp sets.
These stamps this release are so versatile, you will see a great variety for a couple different holidays and occasions.
For my first card I used the super sweet stamp set, Little Darling Aspen.
She is possibly one of my favorites from this release, isn't she just adorable with her fox friend by her side.
I colored stamped image in using my Spectrum Noirs. The sky was created using a stencil and some pebbles chalk.
For my second creation, I used a mixture of dies from the YNS shop. The new die is called House on a Hill and the others are from the Winter Fun Tag Die Set.

I struggled getting a really good picture of this card, considering its made out of all white paper and vellum. It's super pretty in person and I hope you all can invasion it on the computer screen. I added some white flocking for the snow and colored in the windows in using my LY1 Spectrum Noir marker. The other thing I love about this card is it was super quick to put together and would be easy to reproduce and mail out for Christmas cards.

Don't forget to comment on all post for your chance to win a $20 YNS Gift certificate.
Before I send you on your way, I want to tell you about the AMAZING sale!!!
If you have some things on your wish list or are loving this release as much as me, now is the time to stock up!!!

I only have eyes for ewe~ Tiddly Inks~ Fabby Friday/New Release

Hello again, happy Friday! This is my second post for the day, woot woot :) I am here to share my Tiddly Inks Fabby Friday creation, its just also happens to be one of the new release digi images as well.
Only have eyes for ewe, digital stamp. This is one of seven new images being released today, and they all are about sheep <3
I decided not to go ahead and color my sheep, instead I pulled out my liquid applique, it just makes the perfect fleece look, doesn't it!?
I chalked the background with some pebbles chalk and then just did some quick grass using two different Spectrum Noir markers.
I finished my card off by adding some, flowers, enamel dots and a wooden veneer.
I was bummed that I only had time to create one card using these new digi's but I plan on whipping up a set of them in the future. They are so fun and easy to work with and there is one for almost any occasion.
Thank you all for stopping by, hope you enjoyed!

Best time to spread Christmas cheer!

Hello everyone, Happy Monday! It's design team day for me over at the Timeless Twine blog. Through December 12th, the Twine-istas will be featuring some "Krafty" creations using the color Kraft.
I have decided to use one of the small brown kraft bags from the shop to decorate.
I also used some "Krazy for Kraft" Timeless Twine bakers twine.
SALE - Kraft Brown Bakers Twine - Light Brown, Khaki, Flax Bakers Twine by Timeless Twine
I stamped my image and sentiment directly onto the bag using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
My image and sentiment are from two different Peachy Keen Stamp sets. I colored my image in using my Spectrum Noir colored pencils, because they are oil based they color really well onto the kraft. The white circles are made using embossing paste and a stencil.
I haven't quite decided what I am going to put in this little gift bag yet, but someone will be getting some goodies in it come Christmas time.
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great day!!
