Today is Deborah Anton’s day and she is heading to the beach.


Hi Everyone! Deborah here and I am ready to take you to the beach.  I have had some fun beach times this summer and it always included a little happy hour with friends.  I couldn’t resist using the YNS set Happy Hour to create a beach scene.

YNS Supplies:
Happy Hour stamp set
Happy Hour Dies
Waddles Beach Fun dies for the sun

Start by sponging the background with distress inks and then spray lightly over the top with pearlized water. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but there is a lot of shimmer to this card.  The fun coconut drink and umbrella from the Happy Hour set are cut out using the coordinating dies. Each are propped up on the sand.  The sun from the Waddles Beach Fun set completes the sunset scene.  Stamp the sentiment directly on the card base.

Now it’s time to head on over to IG and start tagging your friends. Wouldn’t it be great to win a $25.00 YNS e-gift card for yourself and win a $10.00 YNS e-gift card for a friend??!! IG posts will be up before 8 am est each day. Leave all your IG comments on the summer series posts by August 11th at midnight est to be entered in the draw. Winners will be announced on August 12th.

Trio of Cuties from Kendra

Designer Kendra Sand is taking over the YNS Blog today. She is sharing three cards made using stamps from Your Next Stamp that were published in the December 2018 issue of Making Cards & Papercraft Magazine!! 

First, let’s share the deal of the day. Today you can save 30% off sentiment stamp sets in the YNS Store!

Now we turn it over to Kendra:

I’m so excited to share these cute cards with you.  The first two use the adorable Good Glidings stamp and coordinating Good Glidings Die Set.
I used the cute giraffe on the first one.

I started by stamping the ‘Gliding By With Holiday Cheer’ sentiment from the Good Glidings stamp set on a slant in the middle of my card base.  I then used the Thick Rectangle Die Set to create my fun shaker window!!  Once finished I adhered it to my card base on a slant above the sentiment! I stamped the giraffe image with Black Olive Ink and colored in with my Copics.  I die cut the giraffe out and added to the right side of my frame!

For the next card I used the adorable deer from the Good Glidings stamp set. I created my card base and then added a piece of brown and green plaid pattern paper from the Mint Cocoa Kisses 6×6 Paper Pad!

I then cut a piece of white paper the size of my card base and cut on an angle on the right side, so once adhered to my card base you’d see the pattern paper.  Before adding to my card base, I stamped the ‘Gliding By With Holiday Cheer’ sentiment neat the bottom right.  I also used the Double Pierced Hills Die Set, to die cut about 1′ up from the bottom left corner, just a portion of the die, so that it looks like a skating mark!! I love the look!!  So fun!I stamped the deer image with Black Olive Ink and colored in with my Copics. Die cut the deer out with the coordinating die and adhered to my card with pop-dots.  I finished the card off by adding some Gumdrops to the upper right of my card.

For my last card I used the Home for the Holidays stamp and coordinating Home for the Holidays Die Set.

I created my card base from a piece of teal cardstock!  I then used the Stitched Scalloped Rectangles Die Set for my white scalloped cardstock layer, which I adhered directly to my card base.

I used the Stitched Rectangle Die Set to create a teal and white cardstock layers.  I stamped the ‘Season’s Greetings’ sentiment with Black Olive Ink on the white rectangle cardstock layer near the bottom right. I then adhered the two layers together.  Wrapped some Divine Twine near the upper right and adhered to my card base with pop-dots.  I added a button and twine bow as well.

I stamped the sweet birdhouse image with  Black Olive Ink and colored with my Copics.  I die cut the sweet image out and added some Glossy Accents to the snow on the birdhouse and then sprinkled some glitter on it!  I let it dry, shook off the excess glitter and adhered to my card with pop-dots!! Three super fun holidays card! 

Have a lovely day!

Happy Monday and happy day after Super Bowl!

Did your team win? I hope either way, you had a great weekend doing what you enjoy or watching the bowl game. 

Today, I am sharing a little love with a treat project using the super fun Butterfly Treat Box die and Silly Love Monsters stamp set.

YNS Supplies:
 

This treat box would typically have the beautiful butterfly as the topper, but I decided to create my own topper to make it fit for Valentines and have a heart that I created as a topper instead.  The box is filled with the conversational kisses and I decorated the outside using some patterned paper.  I cut out the Silly Love Monster to be popped up over that.  The sentiment was stamped and placed at an angle and finished with some of the fun Hearts and Dots Gumdrops.  I also placed a few gumdrops on either side of the box for some added elements.  This die makes for fun and easy treat giving for any occasion.

That’s all for me today, but be sure to check the YNS Blog this whole week to see all the fun projects the DT have done to help get your Valentine mojo in order.  Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great week!
