Are you ready for a fun birthday card featuring lots of color? We have another guest for you today. Francine Vuillème is our guest and she is taking over the YNS blog! Thank you for joining us Francine!
This is Francine Vuillème from Switzerland. I’m thrilled to join Your Next Stamp as a special guest this month. I have collaborated with YNS since 2014 and it’s always a huge pleasure to play with their lovely stamps. Also, Karen is the sweetest! Thanks for the opportunity to join once again!
I went for a clean and simple but colorful birthday card. I started by making a top-folded card base using white card stock. I adhered a piece of rainbow patterned paper that I found in my scraps in the center of the card front. I stamped the sentiment, also from the Crazy Fun Shopping Carts stamp set, to the top of the card in black ink. I used my Misti stamping tool to stamp straight. Next, I stamped the funny shopping cart, colored it and cut it with scissors. But there are coordinating dies if you don’t like fussy cutting. The small Oooooo! speech bubble is from the Silly Monsters Chill Out stamp set. I assembled the card as shown and fixed all elements with foam pads for more dimension. It’s such a happy card with all those colors!
I hope you’ve enjoyed this card inspiration. Stay tuned… I’ll come back with a second guest spot later this month. Thanks so much for stopping by!
I decided to create a card with the sweet bunny from the Sprinkles – Sugar Rush stamp set. I started out by sponging the left part of a white piece of cardstock with Peacock Feather Distress ink. I glued the panel onto a white card base and grounded the front with a strip of patterned paper. Rainbow colors are great with sweets! I then stamped the sentiment, from the Celebrate Sweetness stamp set, on the left in black ink. Next, I colored the bunny and the cute little candy with Copic markers and fussy cut them. I chose the paper piecing technique to cover the lollipop and I took the same paper that I used to ground my card. I adhered the bunny with foam pads onto the sponged area and the candy close to the sentiment for more cuteness!
If you would love to see more creations made by Francine, please head on over to her blog.

Happy Monday, YNS friends! I hope you had a great start of July and to our American friends, we hope that you had an extra amazing weekend!
Don’t forget, you still have plenty of time to hop along in our July release right now.
I’m always so excited to introduce our guests, but our next guest comes all the way from Europe. She’s been our special guest before and a pleasure to work with in the past. If you hopped along in our July release, you may have noticed that she also created some wonderful projects already seen HERE and HERE. Please help me in welcoming Francine as our first July guest:
My name is Francine! I live in Switzerland in the wonderful Three Lakes Region with my sweetheart and our three cats. I’m bilingual in German and French from birth.
I discovered scrapbooking and cardmaking in 2009 by leafing through a book and it was love at first sight! I like playing with different styles and techniques. It depends on my mood and inspiration. But I always love coloring, rainbow and bright colors, making splatters, using stencils and blending tools, paint brushes and watercolors. When I’m not crafting, I spend my spare time cooking, playing bowling and party/board games with friends, taking walks along the lake or going on boat trips with our motor boat during Summer. I couldn’t live far from a lake and without my cats! Cuddling with them makes me SO happy!
Francine’s card is so awesome – no pun intended! I love her signature style that always focuses on some color and then using lots of white space to emphasize the splash of color.
