Christmas is in the House!



That means the team is sharing creations and today's theme is Christmas or Winter.
It also means if you head on over to the YNS Blog there is a chance to win just for commenting!

YNS Gingerbread House Die Set
Sweet Holiday Greeting Stamp Set (cookies)
Holiday Cheers Stamp Set (sentiment)

Did you happen to see any of the creations featuring the newly released Gingerbread House Die set?  The set has everything you would need to decorate a house.  I decided to keep it CAS here and use only the house frame and roof icing dies.  I am thinking all those Your Next Stamp critters will have fun in a house of their own!

Don't forget to head on over to the YNS Blog and comment to win!

Another Bunny!

There is a new challenge on the YNS blog!  The sketch challenge inspired me to create this card full of pink. 
Supplies:  YNS A Gift from Cuddles, Fishtail/Banner Dies and Seasonal Dies (heart)

 I was inspired by the sketch, which will inspire you?  Now you may have seen this "sketch" before.  It is one of my favorite card layouts. I typically cut out the circle and then fill it with a fussy cut image.  
What will you do?  I can't wait to see!



Be sure to play along head on over to the YNS blog for more details and inspiration from my teammates.

Julie

Christmas Bunny

LMMS Bunny with Stocking

Today's card is full of white (think snow) for the new challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps.  Can you guess what the challenge is?   One of my faves...CAS aka Clean and Simple!  That means lots of white/ open space with one focal point and little to no embellies.

YNS November Blog Hop


Welcome to the Your Next Stamp November new release blog hop!  This release is full of Christmas fun with new stamps and dies perfect for your holiday crafting!  


How would you like a chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the Your Next Stamp store???  Think of all the new goodies you could get from the store!!!  All you need to do is hop, hop, hop and leave a comment on each of the blogs in the list at the very bottom of this post.  You have until November 11th to hop and comment for a chance to win.
Head on over to the beginning of the hop at Brianna's blog, then hop along.  Heat up some cocoa and sing a few carols.  You should have arrived here from Laura's blog.

I have a trio of cards full of SWEETNESS to share with you today.  Making presents is one of my favorite things to do.  The cards that I am sharing today will be part of a set that I am putting together.  I purchased a roll of Christmas wrapping paper and will be making cards and tags to match.  Add in some postage stamps and I will have a Birthday present for someone special celebrating their Birthday before Christmas.  

All three cards were made using the new stamp set Sweet Holiday Greetings and the coordinating Sweet Holiday Greeting Die Set.   This set is YUMMY and reminds me of my childhood because decorating cookies is a holiday tradition in my home. My mother taught my sister and I at an early age to make sugar cookies. 





You will definitely want to check out the new stamps and dies in the YNS Store as Karen is offering a discount!
Before you leave be sure to leave a comment to increase your chances of winning a prize! 
Thanks for stopping by to say hi!
