YNS Challenge #22 – Birthday Creations


It’s time for another YNS Challenge! YIPPEE! I’m your hostess for challenge #22 and since tomorrow is our 1st birthday hop celebration I decided that our theme should be BIRTHDAYS!

I decided to ink up Hula Hoop Fhiona for this special occasion! I love her…she just makes me smile! I used some of her fun accessory stamps to create the dp and had so much fun colouring the images in using one of my new fav finds…twinkling H2O’s! I’ve been trying to get my hands on some these shimmery paints for the longest time and let me tell you…it was worth the wait! I love them!!! No, I’m not affiliated with them nor did anyone send me some so I could brag about them…I just saw them in an Australian craft magazine and knew I had to get my hands on some!

The sentiment is actually from the Dale Design stamp set Make a Wish and I thought it was quite fitting for this card. Plus, I have to give a shout out to Simonne because she gave me the idea to bling up Fhiona’s hula hoop, clink this link to check out her awesome sparkly hoop creation in the YNS gallery! Thanks hun!

I wanted to show you all the shimmer…feel free to click on the photo to see it better :o)

I hope you join is all the fun for your chance to win some YNS bucks! Be sure to hop on over to our YNS Challenge Blog for all the details!

August Guest Designer

I’d like to take a moment to welcome the talented Andrea Murdock to our YNS stamping family for the month of August!!! So glad to have you with us Andi!!!

Check out this super adorable Cupcake Cutie Fhiona card Andi created along with a bit of info in her own words…

Hi, my name is Andrea but I also go by Andi. I have been married to my best friend for 16 years and we have 2 daughters. Our house is always filled with laughter as we all like to think we are comedians and try to out do each other at making our family laugh! I have been papercrafting for about 10 years now and my addiction hasn’t slowed down a bit! I am not sure what I do more though- buy supplies or actually create- it may be tied! I am even getting better at using my pretty paper and ribbons and not just hoarding it lolz! My favourite medium to work with are copic markers and I love to find new ways to use stamps to show their versatility. My daughters like to craft with me and I have even learned how to share my copic markers without having my eye twitch hee hee! I fell in love with YNS images as they were so fun not only for me to play with but my daughters went nuts over them! They have such a fun whimsical look to them that they are a great addition to my crafting collection. I am so excited to be part of YNS’s August team!

Happy Stamping!


Shaped Easel Card

Since our challenge this week over at the YNS challenge blog is to make an easel card I thought I would have some fun and create a shaped easel card! Thanks for this fun challenge Cabio! I keep seeing these shaped easel cards all over blog land and I’ve always wanted to make one so I finally went for it! LOL

I really wanted to ink up Monkey Gone Bananas and decided to create this little scene for him on the beach. I used the palm tree from the Cute Birthday Lion set along with the You Make Me Happy sentiment from the Happy Days Mermaid set because I think this monkey looks like he is doing the happy dance!!! The sand around the trees and along the back is  Ultra Fine Flower Soft and then the little glitter button is from the Walk on the Beach button set.
You’ve got until next Tuesday to join in all the easel card fun so I hope you play along for your chance to win some YNS bucks..hop on over to the YNS challenge blog for all the details!
Happy Stamping!

Happy Birthday Dad!

We’re celebrating my father’s birthday this weekend and he loves fishing and relaxing on his boat so I thought this was the perfect stamp for his card! I’ve used Ethan out on the pond and just couldn’t resist pairing it up with this adorable 3 Bugs in a Rug DP.
I thought this was the perfect time to share with you a few cute pictures of Brandon. He got to go fishing with Grandpa for the first time this past week and he had so much fun playing with all the rubber worms in his pail plus ‘bumpa’ (this what Brandon calls him) let him drive the boat! LOL

Plus to celebrate Dad’s birthday I’ve got a sale going on over at the YNS store

20% off for Dads Birthday Sale

Sale ends Monday at midnight

Have a wonderful weekend!


YNS Challenge #21 – Easel Cards

It’s time for YNS Challenge #21! Our hostess this week is the very talented Cabio and she has challenged us to make Easel Cards! I really enjoyed this challenge because it forced me to make something different rather than a traditional shaped card which I seem to lean towards most of the time.

I’ve used Rainbow Swing Fhiona on my easel card – isn’t she just too cute!?!

I hope you play along for your chance to win some YNS bucks! Check out the YNS Challenge Blog for all the details!

Happy Stamping!


A Few Cute Cards

Happy Tuesday!

Today I’d like to share these adorable cards made by some really special blogger friends of mine!

The first card is by Christine over at Dol Creations. She’s used the adorable Dale Design Stamp Make a Wish and you can check out her blog post HERE. I just love how she coloured this image and all the added sparkle is the perfect touch!

This next card is by Lori Craig over at Make a Difference. She has used the super cute Bubbly Fun Fhiona and you can check her post out HERE. I just love her stitching and all the shine she added to the tub!

Happy Stamping!


Smores Anyone?

Happy Friday!

I just couldn’t resist sharing this super fun and creative smores bag created by Kerry Urbatch which just happens to be the featured project right now on PCP!  Kerry used the adorable Fhiona’s Tent stamp and created a yummy smores bag…how creative! I think this is a must have for all campers venturing out to the wild! I know I would be quite happy sitting by the camp fire munching away on some of these sweet treats!

Happy Stamping!


Simple Summer Card

I’m really loving the colours in this new Bo Bunny Sun Kissed line and with this heat chilling by the water with a glass of Crystal Light (or whatever you fancy) is definitely on my mind. I had a little crafting time yesterday and decided to make this simple summer fun card…
I used the fancy drink from the Dale Design Cheers set and decided to color it in using some reinkers and my water pen and then finished it off which a little sparkle smooch and clear glaze for the glass – FUN! The sentiment I used is from the Fhiona and Fhinn Hiking stamp set and I now have amazing white gel pens in stock which I used for the highlights on the glass.
The flower started off white until I got a hold of it and added some color, the purple flower is from the Sun Kissed Flower set and then of course I had to add some baubles!
