Karen Aicken with a Magical Birthday Card

Guest Karen Aicken is taking over the blog today and sharing a magical card!


Hello Everyone!

I have a magical birthday creation for you!

The Confetti Panel Die is perfect for any celebration, and here I cut it from white card stock. Before adhering it to a slightly smaller piece of the bright green card stock, I cut small squares of white glitter paper and adhered them on the back side over each of the star shaped openings. It’s very subtle in the photos, but gives a lot of extra sparkle to the card in real life. The stamped and cut out Magical Pony was adhered to a Stitched Wavy Circle with foam tape, then the Stitched Wavy Circle was attached to the card front with an Action Wobble. I love how it bobs and wobbles around on the card.

I white embossed the sentiment from the Photo Booth Stamp set onto one of the new Stitched Fishtail Banners and added that to the card with foam tape. Finally, I added a few sparkly Gumdrops!

Of course I also decorated the inside of the card. A greeting from Whatnot Sentiments Set Thirteen was stamped onto the Stitched Fishtail Banner and I added a sweet pink Gumdrop and a smaller Stitched Wavy Circle as a place to write a message and sign.

Hi, I’m Kulbir living in beautiful Ontario Canada. I am a mother of 2 teenagers that keep me very busy. In my spare time I love escaping to my craft space to unwind and enjoy experimenting with all types of medium; my favourite is coloring with Copics, water coloring and making all things rainbow. Hope you enjoy what I create this month using the  awesome products by YNS. 🙂

Karen Aicken

Karen Aicken here, from Alberta Canada. I love making cards – especially interactive ones and I post on my blog daily. I also donate birthday cards each month to my Mom’s nursing home and I love bright happy colours and images. That is what draws me to Your Next Stamp – their images have so much character and are so fun to create with!

An Interactive Card with Guest Designer Svetlana

We are starting off the week with more inspiration from guest designer Svetlana Pavlova! This time around, Svetlana created an interactive card that showcases more of her creativity and talent!


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.

“Hello everybody! It’s my second publication as a guest designer and I made an interactive card. The idea is that at any time the coffee shop is open for you. A sweet bear at the bar is ready to make you your favorite coffee.”

YNS Supplies: Coffee Cart stamp and die sets

The interactive circle shows day with the rainbow. When the circle is turned, the rainbow turns into the night. I used the cute stamp set “Coffee Cart” and coloured with distress markers.”

I drew the rainbow and constellation freehand.

Today, I am sharing 2 cards made from the same stamp set, “Blossom”.
There’s a cute puppy playfully watching the birds on the first card.

The whole composition is colored with COPIC sketch alcoholic markers.

The second card is made using this set, too. I just removed the puppy.

YNS Supplies: Blossom Stamp Set

I stamped cute birds sitting on a branch on watercolor paper. Everything was painted with watercolor zig markers. The card is filled with spring and already has its own little story! Kraft paper gives comfort and warmth to the work as you can see!

Thank you for your attention!
Which card do you like more?

Hi, I’m Alma and I live in Germany. I feel so honoured to be part of this DT for March. Since 2009, cardmaking and stamping is my favourite hobby.  Especially using bright colours. Typically I combine a lot of stamps to create a little scene. I love the stamps from YNS because the images are so cute, funny and unique, so you have a lot of possibilities to use them.

Faves with Guest Anita Madden

Anita Madden is back with her final project as a guest.   Thank you Anita for joining us the past 2 months!  Anita is ending her guest stint with more of her faves, so scroll on down and learn a little more about Anita.


 

I’m sharing one of my favorite YNS holiday stamps today.  I also love ink-blended backgrounds so I combined both of these for today’s card.
I sponged Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire distress inks to create the night sky.  Then I stamped the little bunny and tree from the Frosty Friends stamp set and colored them with copies.  I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images.  I adore that little bunny and I’ve used that stamp to make lots of cards and tags this holiday season.
I added a silver bow and glitter on the snow on the tree.  I adhered Winter Wonderland Sparkly Gumdrops to add some pretty sparkle to my card.
