I have a special post today. Your Next Stamp, a fantastic company, is looking for design team members for a brand new line of digital stamps. I own several YNS rubber stamps and they are adorable, cute and whimsical. I can't wait to see what these new digital stamps look like.
I have 3 projects to share with you that feature YNS stamps.
Lots of you have seen and even made the cute French fry boxes that have been so popular. Here is my version.
I call them Diva Day Boxes and you can see why. Wouldn't these make fun favors for a bridesmaid spa day? Or a girlfriends get together? Or tons of other occasions? I used YNS Bad Hair Day Fhiona, although I think she looks really good. Just imagine these cute boxes in other color combinations. And of course the boxes could hold candies, cookies, small teacher gifts, etc. The possibilities are endless.
My next project is a cute card with some 3D elements.
Tea Time Fhiona and her kitty are the star of the show. When I saw this stamp I knew I wanted to make the image a scene in a window. I constructed the card so that pieces of cardstock extended out to become part of the opening. After stamping and coloring Fhiona and her kitty I cut them out and placed the image behind a couple of grassy strips to represent the outdoors. I love how it turned out and I must say it's one of my favorite cards.
Fhiona's cat, Willow, is the center of attention in my last project for today.
I have a soft spot for kitties, and I don't even have one!!! Willow comes with her own throne. I colored the image to match the papers I used. Can you see the paw prints on the patterned paper? How adorable is that! I made a matching treat bag with a clear window so that Sis (the happy cat who got the treats) could drool with anticipation. Notice the treats are heart shaped.
So, head over to YNS to see what's new for August. They are celebrating and something FREE is included with a $25 purchase!
Also, please wish me the best on my design team submission. I'll let you know.
