YNS December Feature Day - Winter Fun

Today on the Your Next Stamp blog it is time for the December Feature day post!   That means you have a chance to win a stamp set of your choice by leaving a comment on the YNS blog, plus you get to see all the design team's creations in one spot.   Head on over for your chance to win! This month's theme is WINTER!

   Cocoa and cold weather go hand in hand so I created a cocoa topping holder by gluing 2 Kup Holders together.   I added a band around the entire holder to reinforce and keep the 2 together.

YNS Ingredients:  Kup Holder Die |Sweet Holiday Greeting stamp set | Sweet Holiday Greetings Die Set | Snow Much Joy stamp set (snowflakes) | Scrapworks – Strips Die Set
Add some bags of marshmallows, mint chips, sprinkles and malted balls and your gift is complete!

Clean and Green

Happy Monday!   Happy CAS!
Ingredients:   Your Next Stamp Warm Winter Wishes stamp set

This week's Splitcoast Stampers CAS 354 challenge is all about the greens - make it monochromatic  with greens.  I went with snowflakes, not traditionally green, but somehow it works for me.  What do you think?
  Join in the fun over on Splitcoast and get Clean and Green with us this week!
