T-Shirt Season

Guest designer Irene Rhodes is back with her final post for the week.

It is close to summer in the northern hemisphere. A staple of summer is t-shirts and flip flops, right? Irene is putting the Cool Tees stamp set and Flip Flop Fun dies to work, creating matching sets for several summer occassions.

Are you ready to celebrate Canada Day? Irene’s card is ready to celebrate on July 1st! The Little Leaves die set contains 2 sizes of maple leaves and Irene used both. The larger leaf on the shirt is a die cut and the smaller die was used as a stencil to create the leaves on the flip flops.

There are plenty of other celebrations coming up, how about the 4th of July in the USA? Or a rainbow for Pride Month? There are so many ways that the t-shirt stamp can be used.

Thank you Irene for being a wonderful guest and sharing so many creative cards this week!

Alphabet Fun

Happy Monday everyone!

Guest designer Irene Rhodes is back with a way to stretch the way you use stamps!

Have you ever thought about creating your own alphabet? Irene does just that with today’s card.

The word DAD was created using stamps from the Handyman Stamp Set. Irene arranged the tools to use them as letters for DAD. She started by making a pattern for the letters, then traced it in around the stamped tools.

Are you off to incorporate stamps in to letters? What sets would you use?

Hello everyone, my name is Irene Rhodes. I’m so happy to be back on the Your Next Stamp blog as a guest designer. Its been almost ten years and so much has changed,  but my love for the Your Next Stamp brand has not. My husband retired on my 50th birthday and we moved from the beaches of Florida to the mountains of east Tennessee. My favorite style is still clean and simple, but I do love to throw in a fun surprise now and again.

In honor of Memorial Day in the United States, Irene made an easel card featuring the Flip Flop Fun die set. She used torn kraft card stock to create the beach. Each flip flop is tucked between the layers of paper sand to appear as if they are ‘stuck’ in the sand!

Are you ready for more flippin’ fabulous creations? Stop back tomorrow!

Happy Stamping!

Kim Salito @mimiscraftroom

Hi, my name is Kim Salito, I am originally from the greater New Orleans area. My husband and I relocated to a rural community of Amite City, LA when we retired back in 2001. I have always loved to craft and used numerous mediums over the years, such as ceramics, acrylic painting, and sewing.  I fell in love with paper crafting after my granddaughter was born. I was especially fond of painting, so when I found stamps and pencils, I was hooked.  I am always on the internet looking for new techniques to try out.  I spent a year on the Design Team with Bugaboo Digital Stamps and loved that experience, so  I was thrilled to become a guest designer for Your Next Stamps. I hope you enjoy the cards I made to share with you. 

Want to pick up Party Pets at a great price? Now is the time to shop in the YNS store and save big!

Kim has 3 more cards to share with you this week, so stop back!

Mid Week Encouragement

Today, guest Mugdha Gujarathi is sending good vibes and lots of green with her card featuring the snake from Photo Booth All Smiles.

Mugdha’s card shows how versatile the Photo Booth stamps are. They may have been designed to fit perfectly inside the polaroid frame, but they also layer well and work perfectly as the focal point on their own.

Are you loving all the pops of black and the black card base? The card base creates the perfect frame, pulling everything together!
