Your Next Stamp Sketch and Color Challenge #78

Come play with us for Your Next Stamp's Latest Color and Sketch Challenge
All details and a chance to win a YNS GC HERE
 I chose to play with the sketch and rotated it 90 degrees to the left.
I cased MY CARD I made for this month's release preview post.  I went for a softer look by using the no-line coloring technique on my Santa, using a soft gray for the toy shop, and using a paper from YNS' Summer Plaid.  You'll find links to all the YNS products I used below.

Your Next Stamp Designer Series - Twelve Days Of Christmas DAY ONE

I am starting out DAY ONE 
of Your Next Stamp's Designer Series - Twelve Days Of Christmas
For 12 Days you can visit the YNS Blog and be inspired by the YNS Designers.  
And yes, there are prizes! 

 I made a set of Hot Chocolate Treat Bags
I went monochromatic with the toppers.  Oh I just love the Treat Topper Die Set.  I am so glad I purchased it, I love to make up bags of treats and this die set is a must have.  I whipped up these bags for my husband's work (I have 17 more to make).  This adorable stamp set Warm Christmas Wishes is geared for winter/Christmas but there also a couple blank mugs that can be used for any occasion, so that is a plus.
