My Hero

Today's card features a super duper cute pup, Super Pup from Tiddly Inks. He could be my own pup, Bolt,who is a Westie.  Perhaps Bolt has an alter ego and when we are away he is flying to the rescue. That would definitely explain why he is always snoozing when we are around!
Stamps - Image - Tiddly Inks Super Pup, Sentiment - YNS Whatnot Sentiments Set Two ,
Dies - YNS Clouds from Spring/Summer Scene and Large Film Strip Die
Other - Ink - Memento, Copics, foam dots, and Cardstock - PTI and SU

My card is based on the latest sketch from Case This Sketch, #116 and is for the Tiddly Inks All About the Boys Challenge.  I was inspired by Jane's card featuring Super Pup in the DT challenge post.  Minutes after seeing her card I was buying Super Pup!

Thanks for stopping by.

Spring...that season when flowers pop through the ground and birds sing.   Hopefully you live someplace where grass is visible and the sun is shining.  I will have to live vicariously through you, because unfortunately I am still surrounded by snow!

There is grass on today's card though and even some flowers {gasp}!

YNS Dies - 
Mini Tag Charm Die Set and Stitching Holes Die Set

My prehistoric card is based on SCS Sketch #532.  It is also for the Simon Says Stamp Spring Pinterest Challenge where I was inspired by the purple cupcakes - the confetti looks like flowers in grass.

YNS March 2014 Dare

Each month after the YNS new release, the design team is dared to make a creation featuring new products and meeting certain criteria.  This month's dare is to use stripes or dots, easy peasy, right?
How did we all meet the challenge?  

Check out the Your Next Stamp blog to see all the projects and if you leave a comment on the YNS blog you will be entered to win a prize!  Fun Stuff!  

So how did I handle the dare?  I went with stripes and the new stamp set Congrads!

Multiple sentiments from the set were stamped in grey on to white paper and then the striped paper was popped up and layered over it.  I fussy cut the cap out and then layered that and a main sentiment stamped in black.

My card is based on sketch #351 from Sketch Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by!

YNS March Release Blog Hop

Today's the day!
New release day at Your Next Stamp!
New stamps and dies are available in the store right now!
There is a blog hop going on right now through March 10th!
Hop, hop, hop and I am positive you will find stamps and dies to make you smile along the way.  
Leave comments and you may just win a gift certificate to the YNS Store!
The more blogs you comment on the greater your odds of winning!

Did I mention that the new stamps are over the top CUTE???  
My first card features my favorite new set, Fruity Fun!  
Recap of what's new:
Fruity Fun stamp set and Fruity Fun Die Set
Create a Character stamp set and Create a Character Die Set
Scrapworks Mini Die Set

Fruity Fun which has 4 fruit stamps and tons of pun filled sentiments!   I combined that set with the new Create a Character stamp set which has arm, leg and face stamps...the pears are now personified and smiling away.  Both Fruity Fun and Create a Character sets have corresponding dies - gotta love how easy that makes crafting and layering!  Plus, the heart cut out is a new die from the set called Scrapworks Mini Die set.  There may be "mini" in the name, but the heart fills up much of my standard A4 sized card!

Next up is the set Congrads!   This set is full of sentiments and a mortarboard, everything you need to create graduation cards.  
YNS Supplies:  new Congrads! stamp set
Clouds from Spring/Summer Scene Die Set
Black Gumdrops

On my card, the mortarboard is being tossed in the air and surrounded by clouds...the layout is based on SCS Sketch Challenge #530.

Don't forget to hop around and leave comments for a chance to win a YNS gift certificate.  I promise, you will see some bunnies as you hop!  Check out the full hop list below.
