Hi there! It’s Andrea with you today sharing a coffee-themed card featuring an adorable, new set from Your Next Stamp called Coffee Cuties. The image in this set is so cute!
After stamping that sweet image, I colored it with my Copics. I stamped the image again on some floral paper, trimmed a portion with my scissors, and paper-pieced it onto my Copic-colored image. I used the coordinating die to cut out the image.
With a stitched rectangle die, I die-cut some patterned paper from my stash. I adhered the panel to a white card and added a strip of polka dot paper. I blended some Spun Sugar distress oxide onto a die-cut, scalloped circle and foam-mounted my image on top. After stamping a sentiment from Coffee Cart onto my card, I popped up the circle with foam tape. I finished with a scattering of Winter Wonderland Sparkly Gumdrops.
Today is the last day to leave comments on the blog hop and be entered to win the $25 gift certificate, so grab a cuppa and get to hopping. Also, tomorrow is the final day of the sale, so don’t miss out on a great time to pick up some new YNS goodies!

Deborah Anton is sharing a card featuring the Oh Shitake stamp set from the June release.
Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all are enjoying your weekend and are able to get a little crafty.
Today I taking over the YNS Blog with a card using a new release set called Oh Shiitake! I love this set and the sentiments it has. I am sure we all have days where we can relate to this set. : )
I paper pieced the top of the mushroom before popping it up and placing within the grass which is the Chunky Grass die in the store. The image was colored with Copics and cut out using the coordinating die for the mushroom. For the background, I cut out a white panel using the Stitched Scallop Rectangles set and added some sponging for color. The clouds were also sponged in using some Distress Inks and finished with the sentiment stamped directly onto the card.
I hope you enjoyed the little scene and my mushroom put a little smile on the recipient’s face! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

Today I am sharing an interactive card using the So Mush Fun stamps! I just can not play enough with these mice I really like them!
My goal was to create a nice scene including all the mice and mushroom from the set. One mouse reads a book under the mushroom, another mouse looks out of the window and waits for the head of the family with the prey. Everyone is busy.
All the characters are painted with alcohol markers, background is coloured with distress oxide ink. Pay attention to the mushroom on the right. I decided to remove the little mouse from above and it turned out as just a mushroom with a ladybug!
When the tab is all the way in, the mouse holding the mushroom disappears behind the mushroom house.
I hope my cards inspired you to create new work! Thanks for visiting! Hugs! ~Svetlana
I’m so happy to show you my two cards for today. The cards are designed to show day and night.
To make these cards, I used the stamp set So Mush Fun. There are such pretty little mice and cute mushrooms in this set.
Do you like visiting people? I really do. There’s a little story about a mouse making a visit which inspired my first card.
I stamped the images using black ink and painted them with alcohol markers. Then I started working with the background. I made the clouds using a stencil and drew the grass with alcohol markers. I cut the background with a frame die and stuck it to the same place using a foam tape. I added a sentiment and some accents.
The second card is more romantic. A little mouse under the light of a firefly reads a book, not a simple book, but a romantic one …
I also stamped the image in black ink and drew the firefly. Then I painted it with alcohol markers and the background was made with the help of alcoholic markers as well. Looking at the card, I realized that there was not enough magic. So I decided to add a bokeh effect. I really like the way it turned out!
The stamp set So Much Fun is definitely one of my favorites! Thank you for visiting! Hugs! Svetlana!
