Welcome to the YNS October Release Blog Hop!!
The time has finally come to reveal the entire October release! There are so many fun and fabulous new stamps and dies, you'll want to be sure to visit each blog along the hop to get inspiration for all the new products!
I've used two very adorable sets today...
Up first is a card I made with the Cup of Happiness Stamp Set and coordinating Dies. This set has lots of fun elements to create a little scene around the sweet mug. I paper pieced the mug with some kraft cardstock, and added an extra little marshmallow sitting on the edge of the mug. I've also used the Stitched Rectangle Dies and Circle Dies for cutting the various layers.
Nose, Cocoa - E47, E44, E43, E43
Shading on Mug - E41, E40
Cheeks - R000
My second card features a new Phoebe set - Winter Wonderland Phoebe! I colored two penguins and cut them out with the coordinating Die Set, then paired them with a sentiment from the Cup of Happiness set, and some Stitched Square Dies.
Penguins - T6, T5, T4, T2

I hope your weekend is off to a great start! After a busy week of helping at the kiddos school book fair, I am enjoying catching up on some coloring this weekend!!

There were lots of Copics involved in this one!! I changed up the colors with each of the greens just a little bit to add some depth to the wreath. After coloring, I decided to fussy cut the image and pop it up on the card. It's so simple, but I love the way the coloring turned out, and didn't want to take away from it with any embellishments.

I've got some Your Next Stamp challenge inspiration for you today!
I really loved the sketch this week, and had an idea right away of what I wanted to make... that doesn't happen very often!
I colored up the adorable Sprinkles in a tea cup from the Sprinkles Coffee and Tea Stamp Set, and paired her up with a pretty doily from the Doily Trio Die Set. The sentiment is stamped onto he snallest die from the Bookmark/Tag Die Set - Large, I just had to mask off the exclamation point in the sentiment to make it fit! The pretty papers are from the My Minds Eye Memorable 6x6 Pad.
Supplies: Hammermill White 80# CS, Neenah Desert Storm 80# CS, MME Memorable 6x6, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink,
May Arts Natural Burlap String, Pop Dots, Copics
