Layer It Up | Your Next Stamp

Hello Friends! 
I am back joining the Your Next Stamp Design Team for another challenge this week. It is called a DT Dare which means we are sharing more projects made with the stamps from the February release. 

What is our DT Dare this month ... Layer It Up! 
This was a fun challenge for me since I use popdots on pretty much everything I create and adding layers is what I do. 

Now, head on over to the YNS blog for all the DT Dare details and leave a comment on the DT Dare post on the YNS blog for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice. A comment must be left by February 16th at midnight EST.  The lucky winner will be announced February 18th.



I used the cutest Fire It Up Stamp set to create my card. 
I created my background using distress ink
I colored my images using Zig Clean Color Markers
I added a stamped Paint Swooch to mimic a paved road
I added pop dots on my little lady and placed her on top of the firetruck
The firetruck was also placed with popdots
I love the dimensions in this card and of course


Come Join Us on the YNS blog and you could WIN a stamp set!!

New Release Blog Hop | Your Next Stamp


It's time for the new February release at YOUR NEXT STAMP!


So Many super cute stamp sets are being released today. These are all great for birthdays, thank you notes, hello friend and so much more!  The new sets include Fire Up the Fun, Music Chicks, Star Girls and so much more!

My first card is a super cute one I must say. I have no relations with firefighters at all but these are too much fun! I colored these with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and some distress ink for my background.  I added some grey and black ink to resemble pavement and I used a small stamp from the Paint Swooches and Splats for the texture in the pavement. I used the Stitched Grass Die for some grass so I could add my little dog and firewoman in the background. I added the firefighter on the front with popdots for dimension and then my sentiments.
SUPER CUTE!!!

Hello Card | Your Next Stamp

Hello!
I recently created this super cute card using a stamp set from Your Next Stamp called Fur-ever Friends. I love little kitties and this little one was soooooo cute! I wasn't sure what to do with the books at first but I found that masking a few of the books and creating a larger image was perfect. The cat, the boy and the dog are all adhered with Pop Up dots.


I used some distress ink for my background and colored my images with  Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. (Amazon has the best prices!)


The stamp set is from Your Next Stamp and called Fur-ever Friends




Come visit Us at Your Next Stamp this weekend! We have an awesome blog hop and we will be revealing NEW stamps and dies !!! You don't want to miss it ;)

Enjoy the Little Things | Simple Stories

Sometimes we have to remind ourselves to take a moment and breathe. Take a few seconds and look around and enjoy those little things that surround us. When someone is laughing we might say they are annoying, or loud, or being really silly ... but in reality those are the sweetest moments aren't they? 
OK I Just finished watching THIS IS US and I'm an emotional mess LOL!!! 

On that note, This is a layout I created for Simple Stories using the gorgeous collection called BLISS. I am really enjoying this collection because 1 - the black and 2 - the purple! It just seems like a fresh collection for this time of year. 
This collection is shipping in stores in the next few weeks so if you see it --- GRAB IT!
