It's time for some Fun Friday inspiration at Your Next Stamp!
The current sketch is awesome, perfect for building a little scene on your card...
... but, I actually used the colors for my inspiration this week...
I've had this idea for a while, and was finally able to put it together! I found these cute little frogs in the party favor section of my local dollar store... 24 in a pack for just a buck! I thought these would make a cheap and easy Valentine for the kiddos to hand out in their classes...
I started with the Mason Jars stamp set, and stamped the taller of the two jars onto kraft cardstock, then cut it out with the matching Mason Jar Die. The sentiment is from the Loves and Smiles stamp set, and is stamped on top of a sublte pink heart from the Jungle Critters set.
I just used mini glue dots on the frog's feet to attach it to the Mason Jar.
The glue dots hold really well, but if you wanted a little added security that the frog would not become separated from the card, it fits PERFECTLY into a 3" x 2" jewelry bag. I found these in the craft section at Wal-Mart.
Supplies: Neenah Desert Storm CS, Versafine Onyx Ink, Memento Angel Pink Ink, YNS Mason Jar Die Set,

Karen challenged us with a recipe... use at least:
3 Gumdrops, 2 YNS Dies, and 1 YNS Stamp
Not too hard...
I came up with a simple 6x6 layout using the new Little Peanut stamp set. I love this image! I colored the baby and his umbrella with Copics, paper-pieced the elephant, and then added some shading with the Copics.
I used Apricot Gumdrops because they matched perfectly with my paper! The sentiment is stamped onto a cut from the Fishtail/Banner Die Set One, and popped up to leave space for a photo. I also used the Tiny Stitches Stitched Line Die to create the stitched borders.

I'm up on the Whimsie Doodles Blog today sharing my latest Doodlelicious Diva card... have you seen this month's New Releases yet?? This adorable piggy is my favorite of the bunch!
I made a simple card with him today... he is colored with Copics then surrounded with some vellum and carstock clouds cut from my Your Next Stamp Puffy Clouds Die. The sentiment is from a brand new company called Paperie Ink, from the Stinkin' Love stamp set. I finished off the edges of the card with my YNS Tiny Stitches Stitched Line Die.

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp February New Release Blog Hop!!
You will be blown away by the cuteness we have in store for you this month!
I am LOVING the new dino set, and can't wait to have a little more time to play with that one!
For today's projects, I have some very sweet girlies to share with you!
First up, the newest cutie from Penny Johnson... this is Jessica with Cupcakes!
This is such a fun set, with lots of cute sentiments and accessories to go with the main image. I've paired it with the new Stitched Circles Dies, which coordinate perfectly with the Circles Dies.
Supplies: Hammermill White CS, Neenah Desert Storm CS, Doodlebug Sugar Shoppe 6x6, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink,
Circles Die Set, Stitched Circles Die Set, Jessica with Cupcakes stamp set, Pop Dots, Copics
I used the Stitched Circles again on my second card, along with the beautiful new Little Darling Jasmine. I've also used the Tiny Stitches Stitched Line Die to add a coordinating stitched border around the edges of the card.
After coloring her hair black, the little jewel band on her head wasn't showing, so I dabbed some Gold Stickles in the places the beads would be, to add just a bit of sparkle!
