Digital stamps are fabulous because you get instant gratification!  Once you place an order, you will have the ability to download the image from the YNS website, then you simply print it out and you’re good to go!  

All YNS digital stamps are .png files so you can easily resize them, print them out onto designer paper for paper piecing and so much more!

If you’ve been hopping along, you should have arrived from Nicole's blog.  To start the hop, head over to the Your Next Stamp Blog.

We are releasing 11 adorable new images today!  If you hop along and leave comments on all of the DT blogs, you will have a chance to win one of the new images!  Every DT blog will have a winner!  You have until Thursday, October 3rd at 12 midnight (EST) to leave your comments.  The winners will be posted on the YNS Blog on Friday, October 4th.

C7, C9, 100, N0, N3, N5, Y13, Y15

I had the pleasure of working with the beautiful Magical Meg Digi by Omnia Designs! She is so adorable, and was super FUN to color with my Copic Markers. I matched her up with DP from Doodlebug Design, Bella Blvd, SRM Stickers, and Darice Star Gems from my stash that were colored with Copic Y08.

My design for today's card was inspired by the Sketch N Stash Challenge #122.

R.I.P. ...

Good Morning! It is with a bit of sadness that I announce this is my last post as a Designer for Sassy Studio Designs since I decided not to re-apply for the current Design Team Call. This is my 186 post showcasing the awesome SSD images, and I'm sure I will share more in the future since I truly love the images. The past 1-1/2 years seems to have flown by so quickly, and I've had the opportunity to meet - work - develop friendships with some amazing designers! 

Sassy Studio Designs is Sponsoring this weeks Time 4 Scrap Challenge.

Theme ~ Halloween



I've been in a Halloween mood lately so I decided to use the awesome Grim Reaper Sassy for today's card. I colored her with my Copic Markers ... decided to challenge myself and colored the skin using the "T" family. All of the design paper, borders, tag, and RIP headstone are from Bella Boulevard. 

Make sure you pop over to the Time 4 Scrap Blog for all of the details on how you can win some Sassy images of your own!

Good morning! It's Monday, and I have a NEW Love to Create Challenge to share with you this week.



We have two (2) awesome Sponsors this week ...


When I saw this adorable stamp called Nap Time from Wings and Willow I just had to have it. My son & daughter-in-law have 3 cats that are more black. I didn't go that route because black cats are harder to color, so I went with the tan colors. I'm sure there is a name for this type of cat but I don't know it.

Copic Markers were used to color my image, and then I pulled out Design Paper scraps I had laying around to create my card.

All of the designers created some awesome projects this week so make your you stop by the Love to Create Blog, and then I hope you share Color Inspired project with us!

Until next time ... Enjoy!

Oktoberfest FUN ...

Good morning! It's time for a NEW Sassy Studio Designs Progressive Challenge over in our Paper Craft Planet Group.



I colored the beautiful Cheers Sassy with my Copic Markers, cut her out and added her to my Labels One Dies that represent a window ledge. The background was colored with Chalk Pencils, and added to the background with some leaves popping out and red pearls.

I  don't drink so I left off the sentiment, which I will add at a later date when I decide who the card will be given to. My card is loosely based on an older sketch from Seems a Little Sketchy Challenges.

This gives the troops a way to stay connected with their families while they are serving our country. Along with those dozens of boxes of hand made cards OWH includes Any Hero Mail. These are Thank You cards with messages of gratitude and encouragement inside. OWH has created Guidelines for card makers to adhere to for the Safety of our Troops.  For more information about Operation Write Home and their work make sure you click on the links ... OWHGuidelinesAny Hero MailDeadlines for Shipping, and The Mailroom for shipping out your cards. 


Of the many Sassy Studio Patriotic stamps available in the store I chose to work with Scarecrow Sassy for today's challenge. I love that she is standing at attention and saluting, which makes her perfect in my eyes for today's challenge. I really love this image and truly enjoyed coloring her with my Copic Markers, matching her up with masculine cardstock and design paper, and adding the Star Gems.

This card will be heading off to OWH along with several other cards that I've created.

A Little Message for you ...

Good morning and WELCOME to the DeNami Designs Krazy for Kraft Blog Hop. We have an awesome group of Designers ready to share some amazing Kraft projects using DeNami Designs products! If you arrived from Amy's Blog then you are in the right place. However, if you just arrived make sure you hop on over to the DeNami Blog for a list of today's participants.

Kraft cardstock is one of my favorite to use, and I truly need to pull it out more often. With the seasons changing soon (boo) I went with a Fall design.


When I think of Fall I think of bare trees so I pulled out the Large Winter Tree (P93), put the tree into a planter box from the Garden Acessories Cling set (CL-F221), wrapped some twine under the planter, added the sentiment A Little Message for you (CL-F221) underneath, layered it on brown cardstock, and popped the design on Kraft cardstock.

The Large Winter Tree was stamped on Kraft cardstock, next was to stamp the planter box 4 times ... once on the design, 3 times on Kraft cardstock, each piece was cut out and layered on the design. The top piece was colored with Copic Markers. I love how different the colors look on the Kraft cardstock and need to do this more often.

Now it wouldn't be a hop without a Prize. So here are all the details ...

The Blog Hop starts today, September 8th at 6:00 AM PST, and you have until
Monday, September 9th at 11:59 PM PST to leave a comment on each of the Designers Blogs.

By leaving a comment for all of the Designers in the Blog Hop you will be qualified to win one (1) of three (3) $20.00 Gift Certificates to the DeNami Designs On-Line Store.

Your next stop is the very talented Lisa.

Thank you for loving comments, and for hopping along with use this month!

Sassy Sponsorship ...

Sassy Studio Designs is one of the Sponsors for the 4 Krafty Girlz Challenge.

Challenge #1 is Anything Goes


My project features the awesome Boom Box Sassy that was part of the Back to the 80's Release in August. Isn't she super COOL! You can find her in the SSD Store here ... you'll need to scroll down a bit to get to her. 

Boom Box Sassy was colored with my favorite medium ... my trusty Copic Markers. The music background that you see is from a 8-1/2" x 11" Photo quality flyer I received back in July while at a local Music Festival. When I saw what the flyers looked like I just had to grab one for my craft room. The polka dot strips were created with Designer Tape that I added to white cardstock. I had to add a POP of bright colors to my card, and I really love how it draws the eye. I will be adding a sentiment to the top strip once I figure out what that will be.

Today's card was inspired by the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #192 ...

For you ...

Good morning! Today I'm here to share a card that I created for the Delightful Inspiration {from the heart} Stamps Design Team Call! I was super excited to see the Design Team call last week since I truly love working with the images that Faith creates.


I fell in love with this adorable Happy Mail stamp, and couldn't resist the opportunity to use my Copic Markers on it again for my submission. I printed several copies of Happy Mail so that I could paper-piece parts of the mailbox and the mail itself for added dimension.

Copic Markers that were used to color this adorable stamp.

Now for a look at the inside ...


 My design for today's card is based on the i{heart sketches} Sketch #007.


It would truly be an honor to have the opportunity to inspire the many fans of Delightful Inspiration {from the heart} Stamps on a regular basis. Thank you for taking the time to review my submission, and for the opportunity to become a part of such an amazing group of Designers.

Until next ... Enjoy!

Fall Themed Notecards ...

Good morning. I'm over on the Stamp Annie*Thing Blog today sharing a couple of Fall Themed Notecards that I designed for my daughter's new teacher. She loves Halloween and all things Fall, so I know she will love these 5" x 3-1/2" Notecards I designed with her in mind.




The pair of pumpkins from the Our Lil' Pumpkinhead and sentiments from the One Cool Cat stamp set were just what I needed to make the Notecards. 

I first stamped the pumpkins and sentiment on the cardstock, then used a Black Multi-Liner and ruler to draw the lines. Copic Markers were used to color the pumpkins, and once the cardstock was added to the card-base I added black rhinestones to the empty corners. Super easy!

I then stamped the Pumpkins on the envelopes and colored them in with my Copic Markers. Now that the holiday weekend is over, I will create the rest of the Notecards ... there will be 4 of each design in the set.

I hope today's project inspires you to head on over to the Stamp Annie*Thing Store to check out all of the amazing stamps that we have to offer.

Until next time ... Enjoy!
