Fun Friday #8

Happy Friday!  How about a mouse card to celebrate today???
YNS Supplies:  Quirky Animals Set One, Stitching Marks Circle Die Set, Tiny Stitches Stitched Line Die
My card is based on the latest YNS challenge sketch which features a ton of circles!   Of course you can always swap out those circles for another shape, but I stuck with them for the "cheese".

If sketch challenges are not your thing then check out the color challenge.  There are always 2 challenges to choose from and if you really want to up the ante then you can attempt to combine both challenges.  Link up your creation on the Your Next Stamp blog,

Thanks for stopping by.

Today's card is for Your Next Stamp challenge #7.  The sketch for this challenge could be used for one of my favorite types of cards, a scene, but I decided to flip it!
Quirky Animals Set Two and sentiment from Little Darling Jasmine

There is still a week to play along with challenge #7, so join in the fun for your chance to win a YNS store gift certificate.

Your Next Stamp February 2015 Release

The wait is over! 
Dinosaurs, cupcakes, and tons of cuties are now available in the Your Next Stamp store.
Today is the day to hop hop hop 
and check out all the new stamps and dies 
in the Your Next Stamp store!  
Of course, there is a prize for one lucky person who hops...the more blogs you comment on, the greater your chance of winning.

The cards I am sharing with you today feature the new set Prehistoric!  This set has four dinosaurs in it, along with some fun sentiments. 

I know dinos are usually for kids, but combined with the "prehistoric" sentiment, this card is for the older crowd.

YNS Supplies:  Prehistoric Stamp Set,  Inside Happy Birthday sentiment from Jessica Cupcakes stamp set, and  hills created using the Spring/Summer Scene Die set
My card is based on YNS Sketch and Color challenge #7.  I cut away the front top of the green base so that the dino gets to fly over the inside sentiment too.

To prove dinos are not just for boys, here is a floral card for the girls.  This is one of my favorite sentiments!

YNS Supplies:  Prehistoric Stamp Set, Tiny Stitches - Stitched Line Die, Gumdrops
