Birthday Wish

Guest designer Cindy of @CRNcards is back sharing another creation. Today she takes a mouse from the Cupcake Day stamp set and combines it with the Balloon Bouquet stamp set.

Clean and cute, the bold black stripes add a graphic element to Cindy’s fun card.

Thank you Cindy for stopping by and sharing a couple cards with us this week! See more from Cindy on IG @CRNcards.

Happy Stamping!


Smiling with Sprinkles

How about some sprinkles to top off your day! These sprinkles arrive courtesy of guest designer Cindy of @CRNcards!

We saw Cindy’s cards on Instagram and we were drawn in by the colors and scenes she creates.

Cindy’s first guest card features Cupcake Day and the Mini Slim Sprinkles Panel Die.

Cindy will be back tomorrow with another creation, so be sure to visit us again. Plus, if you want more inspiration, check out Cindy’s IG gallery and take in the beautiful color combinations she creates!

Happy Stamping!


Busy Bees

Guest Mina is starting off the week with a Bee-lated Birthday card!

Mina’s slim line card is filled from top to bottom with stenciled clouds and so many of the stamps from Honey Bee. The bees are busy, busy, busy.

Is your week off to a busy start? Perhaps try honey instead of caffeine today?

Bee sure to stop by and see more of Mina’s work @fawnie_mina!

Happy Stamping!

Welcome Guest Mina

We have a guest designer for the summer!

Please join us in welcoming Mina on IG as @fawnie_mina!

Mina will be with us all summer long, sharing colorful and creative YNS inspiration! She has a knack for creating fun critter filled scenes that burst with vibrancy and fun. We spied her cards on IG and knew immediately that we wanted to see what she would create with all the YNS cuties.

Mina @fawnie_mina

Hello everyone, my name is Mina and I am a 23-year-old crafting girl from Germany. I discovered my love for crafting back in late 2020, when I received with my first alcohol markers and one clear stamp set. It was love at first sight! Since then, I can’t even image a day without at least a little bit of coloring or stamping.

I am thrilled to be guest designing for Your Next Stamp over the next two months. I hope you will like the cards I made to share with you. 

Mina’s first guest card fulfills on the promise of color. Set against an inked backdrop of sea and sky, 3 of the cuties from Just Keep Floating are enjoying the sunset.

Mina will be back with 2 cards next week, so be sure to stop back for the inspiration!

Happy Stamping!
