HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY to YOUR NEXT STAMP!!!
We are having a HUGE celebration this month! Not only do we have new stamps, dies, and gumdrops to share... we also have lots of special Guest Designers joining us, BIG prizes, AWESOME discounts, and even a FREEBIE offer!!
Let's get this party started!!
I have two projects to share with you today... first up I've colored the new Jessica with Kitty. Jessica is one of my favorite stamp characters... so sweet and so fun to color! On this card, I've paired her with the new Banner Dies, along with the Circles Die Set, Stitching Marks Circles Dies, Stitched Rectangles Die Set, and Fishtail/Banner Die Set One for my sentiment.

My next project uses a stamp from my favorite set from this release... I am so excited about Phoebe with Wagon! Fhiona was the character that first drew me to YNS, and now her little sister, Phoebe, joins the family!
How cute is this set!?!
So many fun images! They can be used individually, or combined for a variety of different projects!
You know how much I love a punny sentiment, so I couldn't resist using the "PAW-SOME" sentiment with the adorable pup for a cute little treat package.
I cut the Treat Topper Die from kraft cardstock, and decorated it with some Doodlebug paper. The sentiment is stamped onto a cut from Fishtail/Banner Die Set One, and the little pup is framed with a circle from the Circles Die Set, and backed with a scalloped circle from the Open Scallop Circle Die Set.
There are no furry friends in my house, so I filled the bag with cute little dog bone shaped graham crackers that my kiddos like!

The beginning of each month is always so exciting with new releases popping up! Tomorrow is our New Release Blog Hop at Your Next Stamp, but this is an extra special release, because we are also celebrating Your Next Stamp's BIRTHDAY!!
We are kicking off our celebration with some sneaky peeks of some of the new goodies... today I'm sharing Coco Sweet Treats.
How fun is this set!?!
Can I be honest... what sold me on this set was that teeny tiny smiley face gumball! It's just the cutest thing!!
I colored up Coco and the lollipop this time... I love the optional face for the lollipop! It looks like it is being tickled by Coco's licks! I whipped up a pretty simple card using my YNS Circles Dies, Stitching Marks Circle Dies, and Stitched Rectangles Dies.
Supplies: Hammermill White CS, Bazzill Watermelon Sensation CS, Doodlebug Sweet Shop 6x6, Ribbon, Copics

We are excited to announce the third release from By DIEzyne Dies and Doodle Dragon. We are celebrating this weekend on Passionate Paper Creations and Friends Facebook Group and C.C. Designs Facebook Group.
We are kicking everything off with a really big blog hop!
For my card, I colored up the new Warm Wishes monster... even though he looks like he's prepared for winter, I created a Halloween-ish card with him! After coloring his fur with Copics, I dabbed it with a washcloth soaked in Copic Blender Solution to add a little bit of a fuzzy texture.
I paired him with the new by DIEzyne Card DIEzyne #1... the stitched edges go perfectly with the Stitched Circles Dies. The sentiment is from the new Boo Sentiments Set.

It's RELEASE DAY at C.C. Designs!!!
The Halloween releases are always some of my favorites, and this one is no exception! So many of the images will work for more than just Halloween... gotta love a versatile stamp!
I've used the adorable new Monster Eli for my card today. Fun fact: did you know the Eli character was named after my son? My little guy loves "his" stamp and had a very specific request as to how it should be colored... he even colored an example for me so I wouldn't get it wrong. ;)
Here is my card inspired by his color choices... the googlie eyes were my idea, and he approved! ;)

It's not too early for Halloween cards, is it?!
Considering I made a Christmas card just a couple of weeks ago, probably not!
The inspiration for this card actually came from the current sketch challenge at Your Next Stamp.
Those corner embellishments had me thinking spiderwebs!!
I used the web and spider stamps from the Halloween Cuties set, and added a little hand-drawn web for the spider to hang from. The sentiment is from the Ghostly Greetings set, stamped in French Lilac Palette Ink, and covered in sparkles with my Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen. I doodled some borders, and added some Black Gumdrops to finish it off.
Supplies: Hammermill White CS, Wausau Black CS, Doodlebug Kraft in Color 6x6, Versafine Onyx Ink,
French Lilac Palette Ink, Copic Black Multiliner, YNS Black Gumdrops, Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, Pop Dots
The challenge is open for one more week, so you have lots of time to play along!
Visit the YNS Blog for all the details, and loads of inspiration!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
