Mini Bday Card

Mini Birthday Card for My Husband
 I just love this set BB Polar Bear Pals from My Favorite Things.  
I've been dieing to make a mini card, one of the benefits of matching dies . 
I made my 2 x 2 1/2" card base and cut using My Favorite Things 
leaving a little uncut at the top on the fold (I just put the die up so the top went above the fold a tiny bit, then it does not cut the fold).
Then I stamped my bear and his fish and then cut them out,
colored them up and adhered to the card front. (The bucket of fish I popped up with foam tape to his paw).  For the sentiment, I heat embossed it then used My Favorite Things Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-namics (the straight one) above and below the sentiment and adhered to the mini card front with foam tape. I left him on my husband's desk for him to find this birthday morning.

I got my cute goodies used on this card from Drive By Crafts.

Your Next Stamp New Release 3 Color DT Dare

 I made a little envelope Valentine treat for the 3 Color DT Dare. 
I used brown, red and pink as my three colors that I used with white cardstock.
I cut out the envelope using the Mini Envelope Die then used the heart in the die set to cut it from the center of the envelope on the front side.  I folded all the score lines and stood it up.  Die cut hearts using Scripty Love Die and popped them up behind the envelope. Next. I adhered a Hershey's kiss benind the heart cut out with a smidge of foam tape and to the bottom tab with double sided tape.  This makes a sweet little valentine for co-workers, parties, lunches etc. 
 These little guys make the perfect Valentines for your favorite little person.

Your Next Stamp January 2017 Release Blog Hop

Welcome to Your Next Stamp's January 2017 Release Blog Hop
I am so excited to be a Guest Designer this month.  One of my favorite images from YNS are their adorable monsters.  They have a couple cuties for you this month.  Be sure to check them ALL out in the shop HERE.

I am known by my neighbors as the cookie lady. 
I love to bake (and eat) cookies. So I am especially lovin' these new sets Lovin' From The Oven and Ellie Loves To Bake.  I also made the awning using Wonky Scallop Edge Die.  

Now here is a little tip on how I stamped the oven and gingerbread girl. 
 I stamped the oven using a very light gray ink.  Then I stamped my gingerbread girl with black, masked her off and stamped the oven.  When I colored her up you cannot see the gray line from the oven door behind her.
