YNS - December BLOG HOP

Howdy -

Today is the YNS (Your Next Stamp) December Blog Hop and I was asked to play this month with the DT. There are lots of great new images in this release. And when I saw this set I saw a little gift!

This set is called Java Geek (CYNS308) - Too much fun there are SO many stamps included in this set!


I created a little K-Cup Gift. Perfect timing for the holidays to make up some of these for office friends. I stamped out three of the images. (there are over 12 images included!) I stamped up three of them and then inked the edges and colored up with a couple of copics. I found a piece of Farm House paper in my scraps that just felt right for a coffee project. I chose dark brown card stock and kraft card stock and sewed down all the layers.

The GIFT is that it hold three K-cups! I remember seeing one of these a long while ago and just went on my own and created holder. A 12 x 6 /34 inch card stock. Scored at 4 1/2 and 6 1/2. Then the holder is a piece cut 6 3/4 x 5 1/4 inches I scored it to attach to the back of the folded piece and the bottom... after I used my nesties to cut out three holes just large enough to hold the k-cups.


 It came together pretty well. Even with my lack of directions and "winging" it. Now you really need to see all the cute stamps that come with this set and all the other fun items in this new release. So click HERE to see everything!

 

Now you need to see the the rest of the hop. And just FYI... there is a $25.00 YNS Gift Certificate up for grabs for the comments! And the folks at YNS is also offering up a 20% discount!!
