YNS Challenge #46

I purchased stamps last month from Your Next Stamp (YNS). One of the sets is called Scribble Fun Set Two which caught my eye because I could use the stamps with  mixed media and Bible Journaling. When I received the set I was surprised how some of the stamps reminded me of flowers. So here is my card:


The papers I used are from Stamps of Life and the ink is from My Favorite Things. I used the stem of the flower from a set from Stamplorations. Sentiment is from GinaK.

I am supporting and promoting the challenge over at YNS by entering this card. This challenge is a color or sketch challenge. I chose to do both.

As always thanks so much for stopping by.

It’s A Heat Wave

Nothing says we’re having a heat wave and hot, hot, hot like ice cream trucks, ice cream stores, sno cones, freeze pops and of course popsicles. This card will be going to SAS4KIDS.


I am entering this card over at the Cards In Envy Challenge. The popsicles and sentiment are from Your Next Stamp colored with Copics. I added the happy faces using Peachy Keen Stamps.

Thanks for stopping by and keep cool!

Just Keep Swimming

With record heat today it was refreshing to make this fishy inspired card. I did see Finding Dory a few weeks ago and it was fabulous! Today I am using a new stamp set and a new (to me) company that I am trying for the first time (Your Next Stamp aka YNS).


I used a stamp from the Paint Swooshes and Splatters to make the waves/ocean using Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. The other stamps are from the Fishy Fun set. I used copics to color the scene. You can’t see in the photo but I colored the fish using Wink of Stella Fine Glitter Dust markers which adds just enough sparkle to tickle your funny bone.

I would like to support/promote  these challenges:

Cupcake Challenge (YNS is sponsoring) and  Words 2 Craft By #31

And of course this card will be going to SAS4KIDS

Thanks so much for stopping by — and KEEP ON SWIMMING!
