Your Next Stamp Feature Day!!

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp Feature Day where the theme in "Christmas in July"!!  I am not even close to thinking about winter or Christmas but I must admit, it is nice to mix things up through out the year!  It was actually fun to dig through my seasonal stamps and have a play!

I own a few Christmas themed sets from YNS and did use one. But the main focal point comes from a non-Christmas stamp set. Did you know you could make a Christmas card out of ANY set you own? Just use traditional Christmas colours and sentiment and any image you use becomes festive!! Or, you can use a Christmas set in non-traditional colours...I love doing that!

Anyway, enough chatter. Let's take a look at what I made.


I stamped two To-Go Cups from the Thanks A Latte Stamp Set and coloured them in warm greys, green and red. This is the VERY FIRST stamp and die set I purchased from YNS...it's a classic!!  I used the co-ordinating dies to cut them out. The die set has super cute "sleeves" and other shapes to decorate your cups. I chose green and red papers to match the lids.


I stamped, coloured and die cut a few images from the Deck the Halls Stamp Set and foam mounted them to the cups. The greeting also comes from this set.  I foam mounted almost everything to an embossed, white card panel and added plenty of shimmer and shine with Glossy Accents and a sparkle pen.


I added a strip of red cardstock and silver glitter paper to the right side of the cardbase before adding the panel. The heart steam was an afterthought as I felt the top part of the card was a little too bare.

And that, my friends, is my first Christmas card of 2018!!!  I hope you enjoyed!  Now for the fun stuff...

Please go to the Your Next Stamp Blog and comment for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice!! One comment left on the blog will win.  You have until July 24th at 12:00 EST to leave a comment and the winner will be announced on the YNS blog on Jul 26th!!  Good luck!

Have a fabulous day!!
