Your Next Stamp April Release Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Your Next Stamp April New Release Blog Hop!  We have some GROOVY projects to share with you today using some ADORABLE new stamps and dies!!!  The DT has had a blast playing with all of the new goodies, and we know you will too!
The hop starts here so everyone should be in the right place! :)

Isn't that kitty hilarious??? I just love him/her! This set is called "Purrrfect Day Cat" and is one of the newest sets from Franfou designs. When I saw him I knew immediately that it would be a favorite from my daughter. She loves her kitties and was instantly excited once she saw my card! :)

I colored the kitty with my copic markers, trying to give him the feel that he was a hairy guy. I then cut him out and popped him up on dimensionals. The rest of the card is pretty straight forward! I used some fun paper from Echo Park called "This & That" and embellished with some "manly" twine.
As always we have some fabulous prizes to be won!  Just make sure you leave comments on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win!  Winners will be announced on the YNS Blog Saturday, April 27th.

April YNS Sneak Peek Day!

Good morning everyone! Are you excited for another Your Next Stamp release? I hope so 'cause it's a big one! :)

For my card I decided to pull out one of our new border sets. This is a really fun set and I couldn't wait to play with it. Aren't those flowers just so cute??? I stamped them on the card and colored them with my Copic markers. The sentiment is also a sneak peek from a different set that I'm not showing you yet! :)
To accompany my card, I decided I wanted to make a bookmark so I stamped the flowers using the baby wipe tutorial and then the zig zag stripe on each side of it. I used the Fishtail Banner die set to cut out the bookmark and crocheted a sweet little flower to embellish the top!
Here is the set all together!

I hope you enjoyed today's sneak peeks! Stop by the YNS blog to see more!

YNS Tasty Tuesday: Welcome!

This month's YNS Tasty Tuesday is a yummy one! I love the design and the colors of those cookies! So cute! So for this card I decided I wanted to use the idea of the flowers and the color combination. I took the challenge quite literally I guess!

I used the Happy Home set and embossed it with white embossing powder on some chocolate chip card stock. I then layered onto some baja breeze and white card stock as well. I added some old flowers that I've had in my stash for years and wrapped some fun twine around the card!

Make sure you stop by the YNS blog to see what everyone else has created for today's card!
