Hello crafters! I’m Kate Dykstra from Small Bits of Paper and I’m delighted to be this month’s guest designer at Your Next Stamp. I live in Ontario, Canada with my wonderful husband and we have three children – two in post-secondary and one who just started high school this year. I’m an Accessibility Advisor at our local university by day and a paper crafter by night!
I began paper crafting in 2005 and initially thought I’d like to scrapbook. However, once I made my first set of cards, I was hooked! I began with electronic die cuts and have started using more image stamps in the past year and am loving the calming effect of colouring. I discovered Your Next Stamp in 2016 and quickly became hooked on the fabulous stamps and dies.

Hi!  I’m Chan Vuong, and I’m so excited to be a guest crafter for Your Next Stamp this month!  I’m a big animal lover and get to live with a very special cat named Humble, who is my best friend.  I started card making in May 2009.  Though I haven’t been as active with my card making lately, I still love to do something crafty every day, and that usually involves journaling in my Hobonichi.  This month, I’m looking forward to making cards and other paper crafted projects again, and I’ll also be sharing some journal and planner decorating using cute things from YNS!


Your Next Stamp also has guests Tricia Traxler, Mindy Baxter and Lorraine Bailey joining in the new release fun!

Welcome March Guests – Amy and Trina

This month we have 2 creative guest designers joining us for the full month.   Please join me in welcoming Amy Lim and Trina Pham.   Amy and Trina will be taking part in the March release, challenges, and fun feature days!   That means there are plenty of opportunities to see their creations.

Scroll on down to learn a little more about each designer and to see the first YNS card they are each sharing this month!

Hello Everyone! I am Amy Lim from Singapore. I’m a mum of two adorable girls and happily married to a loving husband who is always supportive in whatever I do.  Since young, I have great passion for art and crafts and would draw, color, crochet or sew during my leisure time.
I discovered the card making community while browsing through crafting channels online in March 2016. I was inspired, did my first card and was hooked since. My style is very much single layer and watercolor using Distress Inks which I find to be very relaxing. Nevertheless, I do challenge myself sometimes to try different styles, techniques and mediums. I would also combine multiple stamps and draw my own background to create fun scenes and to grow and improve my crafts.
I am absolutely thrilled and honored to be invited to join Your Next Stamp as guest designer for this month. I’m looking forward to sharing my projects and hope you will like what you see.

Trina Pham
Hello there.  I’m Trina Pham and I am so honoured to be guest designing at Your Next Stamp for the month of March.  I live on the west coast of Canada in Vancouver with my amazingly supportive husband.
Although I’ve been stamping and paper crafting since mid-2005, it feels like I just started last year in April when I joined this crafting community, participated in challenges and launched my blog.  I don’t know if I have a particular style because I like trying new things. I love interactive cards, and lately I’ve been leaning towards CAS.  I am excited to share my creations and to be joining the YNS team this month.

Get ready for a fun month!  We also have 3 guests joining us for the March release, Lisa Lara, Francine Vuilleme, and Isha Gupta.
The March new release previews start Saturday and then we will be following it up with a blog hop that starts at 10 pm EST Saturday night.

Jennifer Dixon
Blog:   Jennifer D
I am super excited to be here. I live in the land down under “Australia”. I have 3 children and a  husband educated in tracking down stamp and paper shops. Our other family members are Jetta and Myff, our Cavoodle and Spoodle that  sit at my feet while crafting. I work nearly full-time as a Shop Assistant so  I craft late into the night. I have been stamping for about 5 years and I am addicted. I looooove stamps and am also a sucker for dies and paper. I usually use Copics but am loving distress ink backgrounds. I usually  make over the top cards but the last year I have a new addiction CAS and shaker cards.  I look forward to creating some fun cards and  inspiring you.

Hi, my name is Jayne and I live in the UK. I’m a mum of four (very grown up) children and married to a wonderful man who puts up with my crafting addiction! I also have eight adorable grandchildren who I love very much xoxox
I started crafting about 12 years ago but card making is my passion! I love stamping and colouring and trying out new techniques.
I have been a big fan of Your Next Stamp for sometime now and like to enter the challenges.
I am incredibly excited to be part of the YNS family as a guest designer for February.

Love and Coffee with Guest Angel Rivera

We have a special treat for you today!  A coffee filled card courtesy of guest Angel Rivera!

Angel is a former design team member and we always enjoy it when she comes back to play.   We know you will enjoy her creation too, especially if you are a fan of the newly released stamp set Love and Coffee!   

Angel uses masking and 2 of the cup stamps from the set to create a row of cups at the bottom of the main layer.  

 

The hearts behind the row adds so much depth.  Angel hides the strings, so no one will ever know those were created by using the heart-shaped balloon stamp.

YNS Supplies:  Love and Coffee Stamp set

 

To see more of Angel’s work visit her blog:  Angel’s Creative World.

-Julie and the YNS Team

P.S. Today is the last day to comment to win a stamp set of your choice on the design team January heart filled Feature Day post found HERE.

More from the January Release with Guest Katlyn Traxler

January Guest Katlyn Traxler is taking over the blog today and sharing sweet creations with you!


YNS Supplies:   Ellie Loves to Bake,  Love and Coffee, Lovin’ From the Oven

After making this card, I think I need to go eat cookies! I combined stamps from Ellie Loves to Bake, Love and Coffee, and Lovin’ from the Oven to make this scene. After fussy-cutting a couple dozen cookies, I piled them around the adorable dog who is giving us the puppy-dog eyes stare. The card stayed clean and simple so we can see all those cookies and all that love!

-Katlyn


Katlyn definitely earned cookies with her sweet card!   Fussy-cutting is exercise!

Here is another card from Katlyn in case you missed it on Splitcoaststampers.   Once again Katlyn is tempting us with baked goods!

Thanks for stopping by today!
