Most of our YNS team made 2 projects, but I just made the one because I will have my regular FUN FRIDAY SUSIE Q-TIP this Friday, so stay tuned! I started with my favorite Ellie image to date--Ellie Loves Lattes (and so does Susan, so please send Starbuck's cards. Thanks.) I had so much fun coloring her, especially her hair! I usually always blend it all out with my Copics, but this time, I left some of the streaks and highlights. I wish my hair looked that good! I need a haircut like there's no tomorrow! Oh and another latte, please!
Now it’s time to hop on over to Wendy's blog for another awesome YNS project! Thank you for celebrating with us, happy hopping, and we'll see you in our SCS forum!
But before ya'll go: Karen (our YNS owner) is also in the process of moving, so she is having a MOVING SALE! Quantities are limited, so shop early to grab the stamps and dies you want at a fantastic deal! There is also a Retired Stamp Bin (70% OFF!!!) and a Bargain Bin so make sure you check out all of the awesome deals at the Your Next Stamp Store!
SUSIE Q-TIP: When a stamp's sentiment "shape" or "length" doesn't work for the layout of your card, you have 2 options. Either cut the actual stamp and place each word where you want it on the sentiment panel, OR stamp the sentiment "as is" and cut the words out and place them however you want them on your card or project. I've done both and have never regretted cutting my stamps up.
