Your Next Stamp sneak peeks day 1!!!

Happy Monday to you! I am so excited to announce Karen from YNS will be releasing a wonderful array of Christmas stamps October 7th!!! We thought it would be fun to give you several fun filled days to get your minds stirring about what you'll make when you get your very own stamps. Heck you may even win a few!!!
Today we are paying homage to Heather our amazing dt member who created  these awesome stamps I am using today! Heather's new designs as well as the Your Next Stamp Christmas Release will be available for purchase starting October 7th.  We will be having a blog hop to celebrate so be sure to come back and hop along.  There's gonna be fabulous prizes!!!!
Now before I show you my card I feel I must warn you to put your sun glasses on!


This set is called Spread the Cheer consisting of a  pair of trees  and the great word art sentiment.
To achieve the sentiment inside the tree I stamped the tree image and then cut out the inners if the image leaving the stumps,  it's called reverse masking... I think. After stamping the tree image several times on my background paper  I took my mask and lined it up with my stamped trees and stamped the sentiment. It was really quite simple for the effect achieved! Now Simmone and Wendy both have some great inspiration to share so be sure to stop by! Happy Monday!!!! Beth
