Right when I saw this stamp set I knew I wanted to create a scene where the little guy was waiting on Santa!
I used my Distress Inks to create a night sky and my Zig markers to color the image. I cut out snowy hills and added sparkle to them with my Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Overlay Pen.

Hey guys! Welcome to the Love From Lizi summer blog hop. The theme was fittingly summer, so I finally had a chance to pull out the beautiful Tropical Summer Mega Pack, which you can find HERE!
Here is my first card:
For this card I used the patterned paper that comes in the mega pack and fussy cut out the flamingo and floral images. I used card stock from my stash to create my card base and my sentiment piece.
If you take a closer look you can see some gold glitter paper peeking out from the card panel and the sentiment. I topped the card off with a sentiment from my stash and Sugared Almond Nuvo Drops.
I love this mega pack so much that I had to make a second card!
The mega pack comes with a great selection of dies, so I had to use the pineapple, sunglasses, and cocktail drink. Once I die cut the images, I used Distress Ink to add some color. For the pineapples I used Pine Needles, Twisted Citron for the top and Wild Honey with a little Rusty Hinge for the bottom. The ink I used for the cocktail is Abandoned Coral, Twisted Citron, and a little Wild Honey. For the base of the drink I used Stormy Sky.
The patterned and the glitter paper are both from the mega pack. I used a HELLO die from my stash to create my sentiment. It seemed to get lost in the pattern paper, so I decided to use some black card stock to create a “shadow.” I of course had to add more sparkle and topped my cocktail and pineapple tops with some Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Overlay Pen.
That sums up my creations for the blog hop.

Today I created a card using another new release from Your Next Stamp’s June release. This is the adorable Parrot-ise Stamp Set with the Tropical Island Patterned Paper. The theme of the blog hop is “Just for you,” so how fitting that one of their releases was a bird set! If you have been following me long enough, you know my love and obsession for birds!
I stamped my two little bird images onto some watercolor paper with Versa Fine Onyx Black Ink and colored them with my Zig Markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I then used some stitch oval dies, oval scallop die, circle die, and scalloped circle die to cut some of the gorgeous patterned paper. I stamped my sentiment onto some yellow card stock with red ink. I added some white ribbon from my stash and popped my sentiment and birds up with some foam squares.
Once I was finished putting the card together I topped them off with the Tropical Summer Gumdrops which match the patterned paper perfectly!

It is time! Welcome to the YNS Blog Hop featuring the new release for June! I am really excited to showcase the products this month. In my Preview Day blog post I featured the Handyman stamp set to create a masculine card which is perfect for Father’s Day!
Today I am featuring one of my favorite sets, Box Full of Cuteness. Will you just look at those cute critters?! In addition to using the Box Full of Cuteness Stamp Set I also brought in the new die set called, Stick Frames.
To create this card I first stamped out the images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Spectrum Noir card stock. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers (colors listed below) to color the adorable images. I found this brick patterned paper in my stash and used the Stick Frame die to create a window. The Stick Frame dies are very versatile and can decorate your card in a variety of ways. For this card, I chose to use them as a window. I found some teal paper and wood grain paper in my stash to create the ground and the background in the window.
After coloring and die cutting all the images I adhered foam squares to the back of the sweet little animals for added dimension. I stamped my sentiment with some brown ink and cut a fish tail at the end. After placing my pieces down on the card, I felt it just needed a little extra something. I then took the paw print stamp and stamped some paw prints leading up to the sweet guinea pig in the box. I also die cut out a paw print from a die that goes great with this stamp set and placed that next to the window!
Spectrum Noir Colors:
- Box: TN7, TN5, TN3
- Dog: BG8, BG6, BG4, IG2, IG1
- Cat: GB7, GB4, GB2
- Guinea Pig: TN9, TN6, TN4, TN2

Hello! I am beyond thrilled to be part of the Your Next Stamp team for the month of June as a guest designer. It is an absolute honor that they reached out to me, and I was more than happy to say YES!
Today is preview day for the new release (which is adorable). I have been holding on to these products for weeks and so happy I finally get to share them with you throughout the month!
I created the card below using the new Handyman stamp set. It is great for the man in your life that is handy (or not! – scroll down to see stamp set sentiments).
For this card I stamped out the tool images onto some Spectrum Noir Cardstock and colored the images using my Spectrum Noir Makers (colors used are at the bottom). I cut the images out using the coordinating dies.
I had some patterned paper in my stash that paired well with the masculine theme of the stamp set. After adhering my paper down, I added a gold peel off to separate the two papers. The tool box diecut cuts out the center below the handle, but I took it a step further and used my craft knife to cut a slit to put the tools in the tool box. I then popped up everything using some foam squares to add dimension.
For my sentiment I used a brown ink to stamp on coordinating card stock and added a fish tail at the end. Clean and simple, but perfect for a birthday card or Father’s Day card.
To check out the rest of the preview, head over to the YNS Blog. Stay tuned because later on this evening the YNS blog hop begins. You will have a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the YNS store.
