It’s Fun Friday at Your Next Stamp!

Happy Friday everybody! It’s my turn to share a card for our month-long Fun Friday challenge at Your Next Stamp!
 
I’m featuring “Aubrey“, one of the new Darling Divas released in July! I also made with an epoxy accent  to use as the sentiment with the “Skinny Font Alpha” stamp set!
 
 
Did you know that you have all month to join in our Fun Friday challenge, and you can play along as many times as you like! We’ll provide an inspiration photo and a sketch. You can use one or the other for your entry, or both!
I used the sketch for today’s card and was inspired by the gumballs from the inspiration photo. Here’s the inspiration photo and the sketch for your creative reference!

YNS Fun Friday!

Hi again! It’s my turn to post a card for Fun Friday at Your Next Stamp!

Did you know that we changed our challenge day to Friday, and are giving you more time to play along? Now, you have all month to join in our Fun Friday challenge, and our theme is much more flexible! 

We now host one challenge each month, and you can play along as many times as you like! We’ll provide an inspiration photo and a sketch. You can use one or the other for your entry, or both!

I used the sketch for today’s card and rotated it to the side. I’m featuring “Madison“, and the Wave Border Die. The fish image and sentiment are part of the “Madison” set. I stamped the fish on a chipboard circle, colored it and added Glossy Accents to make it into an embellishment.


As promised, here’s our sketch and photo for July:

A new round of challenges at Your Next Stamp!

Happy Friday, everybody! It’s been a fast but crazy week here, and I hope you’re ready for a new Fun Friday challenge at Your Next Stamp!
We’re mixing things up and have re-launched the YNS Challenge blog, and are starting things off with a new type of challenge! 
Each month, we’ll provide a sketch and an inspiration photo. You choose one (or both) on which to base your entry…the challenge will run for the entire month, and different DT members will be sharing how they’re inspired by the challenge each Friday!
I chose both the sketch AND the inspiration photo for my card. I pulled the strawberries, the polka dots, and the colors from the photo, and I’m featuring Darling Diva “Summer” on my card:
YNS Supplies: image stamp ( Darling Diva “Summer”), sentiment stamp (“Ellie Loves Lattes”), banner stamp (“Skinny Alpha Font Set”); Other supplies: designer paper (“Nook & Pantry” 6×6 pad – RETIRED – Basic Grey), assorted Copic markers, sewing machine, paper flower, button, twine, ink (Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Gumball Green).
Here are the inspiration photo and sketch (you can click on each picture to see a larger version):
 
So, here’s the scoop on how the new challenge works:
  • On the first Friday of each month, we’ll post a new challenge for you to follow, and the chance to win YOUR NEXT STAMP prizes and GUEST DESIGNER spots here at YNS!
  • Our SKETCH and PHOTO INSPIRATION challenge runs for an entire month, so for added inspiration, we will be adding new cards & creations from the YNS Design Team EVERY Friday so be sure to stop by every week and join in the FUN!
  • We would love to see you create a card using a YOUR NEXT STAMP stamp, but we also welcome projects made with other stamps. If you do use a YOUR NEXT STAMP stamp or die, your project just might be selected as our TOP PICK!

More Summer Fun for YNS Fun Friday!

Hi, fellow stampers and crafters! It’s my turn to post a card for Fun Friday this week at Your Next Stamp!

Our month-long theme is “Summer Fun,” and here’s my card, which features “Ellie Loves the Beach“:

I also created a custom sentiment with two of our new clear sets, “Happy Day Sentiments” and the “Skinny Font Alpha Set“. The sun was made with one of the “Whatnots Seasons One” dies, and all I had to do was add a button in the middle for instant sunshine!
You’ll want to mark your calendar for Wednesday, May 22 when we reveal all of the new stamps and dies at Your Next Stamp! You won’t want to miss the blog hop, which is always jam-packed with inspiring ideas  from the DT and you’ll have a chance to win prizes just for commenting on each blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
Hugs,
