Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop!

Hello again!  I'm here once more as part of Your Next Stamp's New Release Blog Hop!



Be sure to check out the entire Blog Hop - and leave comments at each stop, for a chance at a $25.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store!  You have until November 14 at 12 midnight EST to comment, and the winner will be announced on November 16 at the YNS blog!

Here are my cards using the delightful Merry & Bright stamp set and matching dies.


supplies: white and Surf Blue cardstock, design papers from Echo Park's A Perfect Winter pad, YNS Merry & Bright angel, sentiment, and matching angel die, Stitched Rectangle and Stitched Circle dies

I thought it would be fun to paper-piece her dress - and I used those same patterned papers as banners behind her.  This makes a nice flat card for mailing.

Next up - a really simple design, using the little snowflakes in the set to frame up a tag:


supplies:white cardstock, YNS Merry & Bright Santa and sentiment and matching Santa die, 2 red inks, markers to color, prisma glitter on his cuffs and hat, Stitched Tag, ribbon to match, adhesive foam squares to pop up Santa and tag

There's a new release sale, too in the YNS store!



   
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Your paper piecing on the angel is superior; I don't have the patience to do that and so appreciate all the work on your cards when I see you doing it. Love how you put the snowflakes behind the tag too. Your cards are both so creative and pretty!

Rebecca Yahrling said...

I love the papers you used to paper piece the sweet angel's dress. Lovely! And all the pretty snowflakes are a perfect backdrop for darling Santa.

Very sweet cards, and I like your paper piecing too! I always forget about paper piecing and need to do it again--it's a great way to use up the scraps of paper I can't make myself throw out. :)
