Happy Birthday to Your Next Stamp!!
   
We're helping Karen celebrate 8 fabulous years with our hop today! There's a HUGE $80 PRIZE up for grabs, a fun party game, and of course, a NEW RELEASE!
  
Here's how to play our PARTY GAME!!
Count the gumdrops as you go and enter the total in the Party Game inlinkz on the YNS blog at the end of the hop. 
One random entry with the correct # of gumdrops will win 10 packages of gumdrops.
If no one has the correct # then the closest without going over will be used to draw the winner.
 
Now onto the new release...
For my first card, I used the ever popular Silly Monsters in their new Silly Birthday Monsters set! I colored this cutie to match some paper from the new Birthday Girl 6x6 Paper Pad, and created my card base with the new Scalloped Rectangle Die Set. I finished it off with a few Gumdrops from the new Nautical Matte and Pretty Peacock Matte sets!

Monster - V17, V15, V12, V01
Spots - Y13, Y11, Y000
Gifts - Y38, Y35, Y32 and RV14, RV13, RV10
     
On my next card, I used the new Mini Circle Panel Die to make a sweet little 3x3 card... I LOVE this die! Even more than the original size... it's too cute!!
 I used some really cool green crushed velvet cardstock from Doodlebug to add some texture to the peekaboo background, and to cut out the little numbers from the Bold Numbers Die Set. I colored up a cute pup from the Party Pets set, and popped him up to finish it off.

Love these! Could you tell me how you made the card base with the die on the first card? I don't see that they attach at the top, but the back shows that it is scalloped, too... I love the look!

purple monsters are the best|! i think i would give him googly eyes too if i;d get this stamp. the doggy is super cut and the die reminds me of cheese, would be perfect with a mouse stamp too
