A Ewe-nique Card by Andrea Shell

Hi there! It’s Andrea sharing a colorful card featuring the new So Ewe-nique stamps and dies and Flower Petal Panel Die. The images in the So Ewe-nique set are so adorable, and the puns are lots of fun!

I stamped that cute sheep with Black Olive Dye ink and colored her with Copics. After trimming her out with the coordinating dies, I added some highlights with a white gel pen.

Your Next Stamp’s panel dies make quick, fabulous backgrounds, and the new Flower Petal Panel Die is no exception! I first inked up some Bristol Smooth paper with Worn Lipstick, Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade distress inks. I also added a little Abandoned Coral to deepen the pink. After flicking on some water droplets, I die-cut the piece and adhered it to a white card.

I white heat-embossed a sentiment from So Ewe-nique and die-cut it with the Fishtail/Banner Die Set One. I adhered the banner to a vellum circle and popped up the sheep with foam tape. I added a few Sugar Rush Sparkly Gumdrops before attaching the circle to my card with foam tape strategically placed behind the sheep, sentiment, and gumdrops. I finished with a coat of clear sparkle on the accordion.

Have a great day!


Creative Christmas Inspiration from Svetlana Pavlova

We are starting off the week with more inspiration from guest designer Svetlana Pavlova! She has Christmas inspiration for you today and her creativity is once again on display!

A bit about me:

I’m Svetlana and I am from Russia. My family and I live in the wonderful city of Moscow. My family is my castle and my inspiration. I fell in love with card making and adore everything about it. I can’t imagine any day without cards and colours. I am so happy to be joining YNS as a guest for a few projects.

It’s time to say goodbye for now. Here’s my last publication as a guest designer for the month.

I was really interested to work with these cute stamps. I have two winter cards to show you today.

The first one is interactive. It has magic colouring.

My children really like such things and this card is one of their favorites.

 The second card is warm and cozy.

I coloured the stamped images with pencils. 

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.


This is not the last you will see of Svetlana’s creative cards featuring YNS products. We asked her back for more guest work in the future!

In the meantime, find more of Svetlana’s creations on Instagram where she goes by @s.v.e.t.l.a.n.a_p.a.v.l.o.v.a.

Happy Stamping!
