YNS Challenge 56

Oh, how I love the YNS challenge #56 colors, don't you? I decided to stretch my stamps and convert the string of lights on the deer to a string of hearts. So cute! I stenciled first then embossed; this avoids pooling of ink (around the snowflakes, eg) but that might be the effect you're looking for so go ahead and try it both ways. I used a Glaze pen to make the string into a leather strip of sorts then glued hearts over the lightbulbs. For her pompom, I coated that with glitter because you can never have too much of that!

I'm entering this in Merry Monday #231 Reindeer

Stamplorations CAS #13 Mid-Challenge Reminder

We're midway through Stamplorations CAS Challenge #13 with the optional color twist of silver or gray. I wanted to push myself a bit so experimented with stenciling on gray which I have never done. Worked a treat! I used my favorite Distress Ink citron and raspberry which are really bright but the gray toned them down perfectly for this sympathy card.

THD #8 Mid-Challenge Reminder

Doesn't this scene just give you the shivers? Crisp and cold and CUTE! I can't decide if my favorite part are the fairies peeking out from the greenery (whitery?), the embossed background or that strip of glitter beneath the sentiment. And let's now forget the Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents that I applied to add sparkle and shine. Love it all

I do hope you're inspired to join The Heart Desires challenge this month--amazing inspiration board this round!

YNS New Release Continues!

Another new release card for you using a 3-color dare! I concentrated on red, green, and aqua with brown as my neutral. Notice I masked and stacked the books from Silly Book Monsters and also masked the happy little worm from Get Your Fiction On to create my scene. I left the tail hanging off the card in the pic but in real life it is adhered to the back of the card for a fun touch. I love these sets--so very cute!

Be sure to leave a comment on the YNS blog for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice!
