Hello! My name is Ashley and I’m so excited to be a guest designer with Your Next Stamp for March! I have been paper crafting for over 25 years, it’s my passion! I’ve taught scrap booking and card making classes in the past and my first job was actually working in a paper crafting store where I got to help design projects to be displayed in their store!! I enjoy sharing my card making journey on Instagram and Facebook @ashleyhscrapstamp and more recently my YouTube channel. Some of my favorite card making techniques include ink blending backgrounds and coloring cute animal images!! I’m so excited to share the fun cards I created with you this month!
The sheep from So Ewe-nique fill the scene with eggs and sequins.

Our February release guest Kulbir Kirklandhas been inking and stamping with the newly released products! Scroll on down to learn a little more about Kulbir and see her card featuring Photo Booth All Smiles!
Hi, I’m Kulbir living in beautiful Ontario Canada. I am a mother of 2 teenagers that keep me very busy. In my spare time I love escaping to my craft space to unwind and enjoy experimenting with all types of medium; my favourite is coloring with Copics, water coloring and making all things rainbow.
Kulbir is sharing one last card using items from the new release. The cuties from Photo Booth All Smiles are nestled in circles.
With the inked background to add color, the critters are layered with sentiments beneath each.

Guest Ushii Landia is back with one more creation for the month. This time around she shares how to create a bit of sweet Christmas magic!
The Gingerbread House Die set is perfect for building Christmas houses! Start by cutting out all the dies from white cardstock. Then add a scored strip of cardboard to connect all the pieces in to a 3D shape.
Watercolor some elements in red, pink and light blue, and decorate the house with some clay hearts and a snowflake.
To add some interest color one of the sweet fawns from Santa’s Magical Sleigh stamp set using the no-line technique. I always use a teeny tiny watercolor brush to paint my critters. To make the house even more of a showpiece, create a small cupcake stand. Cut the pieces from cardboard and add a border using the Dripping Goo Die. It gives the appearance of icicles or a gingerbread cake frosting 🙂
On the front of my cards I stamped the Starburst Background set. Then I cut out a star creating peek-a-boo window. To add some interest I adhered a few embossed stars and made sparkle dots with a clear Gelly Roll Stardust gel pen. The dots are hardly visible in the photos, but they blink and shimmer so beautifully in person!
I did no-line water coloring with the stamp set Magical Ponies. Then added each unicorn to inside the invitations, using 3D squares for dimension.
At the end I added a simple closing band and my invitations were ready to fill in 🙂

It is a week for welcoming back guests! Ushii Landia has a few more projects to share with us! Today she is taking us to the sweet side of crafting.
I’m Ushii and I’m super excited to be a guest designer for Your Next Stamp! Who am I? A crafty girl, trying to find a happiness in every moment of life I live in Poland and I’m an architect. As far as I remember, I’ve always loved to design, create, alter, paint, sew something… Ten years ago I discovered scrapbooking and cardmaking with all the colorful papers, embellishments and cute stamps – and I fell in love! I usually have five ideas at the same time, I love to try new techniques, new things and visit new places … and besides, I love good company, good wine and good books My favorite tools are Copics, Zig Clean Color markers and watercolors, as I love coloring stamps! But I like funny dies and stencils a lot, too. My projects are usually sweet, colorful and joyful
