YNS Bunny with gingerbread cookie

For my final project for the new Your Next Stamp release I’ve used this adorable little bunny and made a layered card in traditional Christmas colours. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, Christmas Cookie, which you can find here.

YNS Twinkles star wreath

A few days ago, for the blog hop, I shared a simple card featuring one of the new wreaths at Your Next Stamp from the Holiday Twinkle stamp set. Today I have a card using the other wreath, the star! I’ve made a completely different card using the Paint Swooshes and Splashes stamp set to create a background using two different types of Distress Oxide Inks. The banner and sentiment is also from the wreath stamp set and I coupled it with chipboard from Make It Crafty.

Don’t forget about the blog hop that ends tonight and the discount. You find the details on my blog hop post!

The new Your Next Stamp release is now out! It is such a great and fun release! Did you see card I showed yesterday with the cute Holiday Ponies? Well today I have another card for you. This time I used the circular wreath from the Holiday Twinkle stamp set and made a very simple card because I think the stamp is enjoy of a decoration on its own. You can find all the new products at the Your Next Stamp store. And while you’re there, you shouldn’t forget about the discount:

Anyway, let’s take a look at my card! There are so many fun elements to colour up. I really quite like both the wreaths on this set, so there might just be another card from me soon, just saying! I’ve kept it simple by adding it onto grey cardstock using foam tape for dimension and drew on a black border. The sentiment banner is cut out by hand and also put on foam tape.

YNS November release preview

I’ve been so fortune that I’ve been asked to take part in the Your Next Stamp November release as a quest designer! The stamps are super cute and I’m up for any excuse to make Christmas cards! For the release preview, I’ve made a card using the Holiday Ponies. There are 4 ponies, some sentiments and some smaller stamps all together. I’ve gone with classic Christmas colours for this.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another card for this super release as a part of the blog hop!

Here is a photo of the stamp set with my coloured up ponies as well.

Space fun

I spent the weekend at Hobbykunst Norge colouring up various My Favorite Things Stamps. I got to meet some great people interested in both the colouring and the stamps and I got a few stamps coloured up to add to my already rather large pile of coloured images! One of the stamp sets I coloured up was the astronaut and space themed set. And between my colouring sessions on Saturday and Sunday I managed to make it into a card, too. I decided to go with the MFT sketch of the week so I could enter it into their challenge.

The paper is by Studio Light and the rhinestone stars are by Rayher. You can obviously find all the products at Hobbykunst.

Here is a photo of the card laying down flat as well, and a little more close up.
