Faves with Guest Candice Fisher

We are back with guest Candice Fisher today and she is sharing her faves!

When asked what her paper crafting faves are, Candice responded:

One of my favorite things is to create with stamp sets that have cute coordinating sentiments that go with the stamps! I see myself tending to go to those when I am deciding what to create with.  This new Silly Trash Monster stamp set has sooo many different sentiments that I had to create more than one card with it!

I Spy YNS Saturday – Tackle Box

This week we spied a pop up box card made by Vornlen.

Vornlen’s card featuring Keepin’ It Real takes fishing to a whole new level!


The splattered wave of blue and panels create the perfect setting for the fisherman.  Vornlen used all of the stamps in the set to decorate the box.

Faves with Guest Tina Henkens

We are starting a new feature on the YNS blog!

We will be asking our guests to share their faves!

This is a great opportunity to learn more about each designer’s crafting style.  It could be a favorite stamp set, technique, color combination, etc.  We are leaving it open ended and can’t wait to see what everyone showcases as their fave.

Guest Tina Henkens is the first one to kick it off!

We asked Tina to share one of her faves and she came back with a list:

“I really love cute critters and mixing stamp sets to create new scenes.
Copics and distress inks are my favorite colouring tools.”
Tina’s card combines all her faves and what a scene it creates!
