I Spy YNS Saturday – A Princess

This week we spied a heart shaped easel card topped by a couple of little darlings.

Frances Byrne’s card is full of sweetness and the cuties from Little Darling Frog Princess.  A bit of sparkle adds to the magic of her card.

Find more of Frances’ creations on her blog Stamp Owl’s Studio.


We are always on the lookout for creations featuring YNS products.  Be sure to tag your photos with #yournextstamp.

Happy Stamping!

I love Your Next Stamp stamps, so I am delighted to be here as a guest for the month of August. I live in Southwestern Ontario and have been a card maker for over 13 years. I love this industry and the wonderful people one meets, and I think I can say I am addicted. I very much enjoy colouring images, my favourite medium being watercolour. I started taking watercolour classes in 2016, and continue with the weekly classes. Thank you Your Next Stamp for having me for the month of August. YNS Supplies:  Life’s a Hoot


Kia and Katie will both be back for our August new release celebration starting on August 11th.   Get ready for the birthday party!  No need to bring a gift, we will be the ones giving out gifts!

I Spy YNS – A Yellow Monster

This week we spied a monster…a yellow one with green spots and a bow to be exact.  No need to hide though, because this monster is from the Silly Monsters 2 set.

We found the monster on Susan Wuthrich’s blog!  We think you will agree that this clean and simple card features a cutie.

The monster set against all the white pops off of Susan’s card.  The sentiment pops too against the green cloud.  Does it make you want to pull out your embossing powders?  We know we want to!

To see more of Susan’s work stop by her blog, Blue Fog Studio.


We are always on the lookout for projects featuring YNS products.  Be sure to tag your photos with #yournextstamp!

Happy Stamping!
