'tis the season ...

Good morning and Happy Friday! I'm super excited to be sharing with you the Your Next Stamp FUN Friday Challenge #5.

My card features the NEW Penny's Poinsettias Digital Stamp available in the YNS Store under the category YNS Digital Stamps. I love that YNS Digital Stamps are available for immediate download.

I used the October Sketch for this weeks project. When I saw Penny's Poinsettias the first thing that came to mind was layers. So I printed out six (6) copies of this gorgeous image and colored each layer of the petals separately with my Copic Markers. Once done, I cut the petal layers out and ran each section thru my Xyron Sticker Maker, and paper-pieced my image together. (This is the best product I have found as a card-maker who loves layering her images.)

Now for a closer look at this beauty stamp ...

Copic Markers: R29, RV29, R39, R89, Y17, G07, G17, G19, G29,
 E93, E95, E97, E99, E19, N0, N3, 0

My Poinsettias look redder and darker in person. The joys of photography. 

Here are a few quick points about the YNS FUN Friday Challenges ...
1. There will be one challenge per month to play along with as many times you like. (Inspirational Photo/Sketch - do one or the other, or both!) 
2. Each monthly challenge will start on the First Friday of every month on the YNS Challenge Blog
3. Prizes: You may use any brand of stamps for the challenge to be eligible to win a YNS  $10 gift certificate. However, in order to win a special "YNS Top Pick" badge for your blog, YNS stamps/dies must be the focal point of your card or project.  
4. Guest Designer Spot: A monthly YNS Guest Designer will be chosen from the challenge participants, and get to play along with us in NEW RELEASES and also receive a fabulous package of previously released stamps!  FUN!!! 
5. All projects must be linked up on the YNS Challenge Blog to be eligible to win. 
6. Be sure to check out the YNS Challenge Blog every Friday for more inspiration from the design team using the monthly Inspiration/Sketch.  You will WANT to play along!

Now it's time for October's Inspirational Photo and Sketch ...
