Floral Duo

Today on the Your Next Stamp blog you have the chance to comment to win a stamp set of your choice!   It is our June DT Dare and we are sharing more creations featuring products from the June new release.

The team was dared to create something around the theme "just for you".   This release was full of appropriate sentiments and I decided to pair one of those up with the new Flower Garden die set.
YNS Supplies:  Flower Garden Die Set, Stitched Square die set, Stitching marks Circles die set, Circle die set, Bugs and Kisses stamp set (sentiment), Cute Little Shopping Bag die set

I started off by die cutting the flowers and then I colored up each with Zig Water color brush markers.

Color Combo Craze

Have you played along with Your Next Stamp challenge #65 yet?  There is a sketch and color combo to choose from, something for everyone.

I am typically a sketch challenge type of gal.   Give me a layout to draw inspiration from and get the ideas started and I am happy.   That's why going with the color combo for a second challenge in a row is so unusual.   It could be that I was drawn to these colors because aqua is my fave.
YNS Supplies: Tweetie Bird home Die Set | Stitched Square Die Set | Puffy Cloud Border Die set 

Play along for a chance to win a gift certificate to the YNS Store!  Link up your own take on the colors or sketch on the YNS blog.

TCP Beach Release Sneaky Peek Giveaway

It's Sneaky Peek Week at The Cat's Pajamas!
The May release will be in the TCP store on Tuesday and each day leading up to it the team is sharing peeks and chances to win TCP prizes!

Today is my day to share peeks at the new goodies!   Leave a comment on this post today and you will be entered to win a TCP store gift certificate.  The winner will be announced on the TCP blog tomorrow.

Get ready to head to the beach because this release is full of water themed stamps and dies.

I am all about the cute, but sometimes you need elegant and classic.   The new Doodled Shells stamp set is perfect for when you need a quick and classy card.  The shells are intricate, full of detail that has almost a lacy look that I am drawn to.

The shells were randomly stamped on the card base and the sentiment was layered over it.   It is topped off by the star fish from the new Shells die set.  The dies cut easily and retain all the detail.   The circles on the star are embossed.

Up next is cute, cause you can always use cute, especially when there is a bunny involved!  Bunnies at Sea is going to be on your wish list.

The line of water was created by using the new beaches die as a stencil.

Finally, a tag using the Beaches die to create a wave of color, with a sentiment from Bunnies at Sea.

Does this release have you dreaming of the beach?  Only a few more days until you can head to the TCP store and grab all these great beach themed products.

Soda Inspiration

Today on the Your Next Stamp blog the team is sharing their takes on artists.  It is Feature Day with a chance for you to win a stamp set of your choice by commenting on the YNS Blog post.  

I took my inspiration from Andy Warhol's Coca Cola paintings.

YNS Supplies: Happy Meal stamp set | Holly Berry Red Ink Pad | Gumdrops

My MISTI came in handy for lining up the soda bottles.  Each bottle is colored up with Zig Water Color Brush markers and then topped off by a bit of sparkly bubbles.

This card is also for the SCS CAS Memorabilia challenge.  

We also have a surprise for you, Karen is offering a YNS Store discount in celebration of her son's birthday!   Use the code below to get the discount.
Now head on over to the YNS Blog and comment to win by May 24th!

YNS Challenge 64

My take on Your Next Stamp's latest challenge is based on the colors and it is clean and simple.
YNS Supplies: Butterfly Border Die | Whatnot Sentiments Nine stamp set | Gumdrops

The Butterfly Border Die bisects the front panel, with color layered directly on the card base.  It is topped off with a few gumdrops around the sentiment.

Link up your own take on the sketch or color combo on the YNS Blog.
