Your Next Stamp June Release....

I have had so much fun playing along with the Your Next Stamp team for the June release! For today's project I decided to create a nature theme travelers notebook spread using just the mushroom from the Oh Shiitake stamp set. 

I masked the mushroom and stamped it repeatedly with Glacier dye ink. Next I colored the mushrooms in with the same ink watered down. I added a bit of splatters to the mushrooms. 

Supplies Used: Your Next Stamp (Oh Shiitake stamp and die set), Crate paper Sunkissed pattern paper, Crate paper Sunny Days camera sticker, One Canoe Two Adventure sticker, Close to My Heart Glacier ink

Your Next Stamp June Release....

I'm back with another peak at Your Next Stamp's June Release

Today I'm sharing a card made using the adorable Cool Tees stamp set! This set has so many cute images that you can create your own customized t-shirt cards or use them by themselves on cards! 

How cute are those coffee mugs?! That is definitely me by Friday, LOL! To emphasize the excitement of Friday, I added an Action Wobbler under the t-shirt to let it wiggle and dance.

Your Next Stamp Blog hop...

I am so excited to be playing along with Your Next Stamp for the June Release! The Card Buddies stamp and die set is too CUTE!!! I used it on a layout of our pup, Flea's first birthday. The stamps come with an assortment of hats, collars and items to create a personalized card for any holiday! 

I started by stamping lots and lots and LOTS of the Card Buddies critters, die cutting and coloring with markers. I layered them along the bottom third of my layout. 

To create the banner, I used YNS Bold Alphabet dies. I cut the letters out of foam and adhered them to circles. I bent the top of the circle over and adhered it to twine.

That scallop piece on the bottom of the layout is from YNS Scallop Edge Die. This is one of my favorite border dies. It creates that perfect touch on layouts or cards.

Playing with Cut Files....

I finished up two more layouts for Paper Smooches Heart Challenge. In the first layout I filled a cut file from Paige Evans Taylor with lots and LOTS of die cut circles, dots, and hearts. I used the heart from Paper Smooches Pawprint die. The circles are from Paper Smooches Ocean Scene die set. The X is from Paper Smooches Stitched Border die set. 

The sentiment is cut from a Paige Evans project life card and describes Flea perfectly. This little cutie is turning 1 this week! 

This next layout uses a cut file from Virginia Walker (Confessions Of a Paper Addict Facebook Group). I backed the cut file with strips of paper cut using the Paper Smooches Borders 1 Die set. Such a fun way to used up scraps of cardstock and pattern paper. 

I embellished it with images stamped from the Paper Smooches Surf and Turf set. The gold hearts and alphas are from Maggie Holmes. The sentiment embellishments are cut from Paige Evans Pick Me Up 6 x 6 paper.

Now onto my layout! I remembered I had a photo of my son from last year wearing his "ugly" sweater for work at McDonalds. With a bit of masking... ok, a LOT of masking I created the penguin pattern paper. I colored it in with colored pencils. One two of the sweaters I added a "M" for McDonalds.
