Wicked Sweet Holiday Lights from YNS!

How exciting, huh?! Your Next Stamp is in the die business and calling it Your Next Die...so perfect! What's even better than that?! Their first official die--Holiday Lights, of course! I can't wait to use it in it's fullest capacity for Christmas, but I just couldn't pass up a Halloween idea I had floating in my head...

Wicked Sweet goes to the Halloween Ball under the Holiday Lights...how fun is that?! She even looks like she's standing along the sidelines of the gymnasium-turned-dance-hall, hoping someone will notice her wicked sweet green hair and ask her to do the monster dance. Ok...enough already!


Here's a close up of the die in full force. I die cut black felt and then various patterns from Pink Paislee's Phantom 6x6 pad, layered the bulbs on top of the die cut felt piece and then wrapped linen thread to mimic the 'threads' of each light bulb before layering it atop a triangle banner. You'll also notice some awesome new Divine Twine in Halloween colors--a gift from my BSF, Leigh O'Brien...love.it.

Now that you've had a chance to see what I've done with the YND Holiday Lights die, scoot on over to Karen's blog for a list of the YNS design team members playing along with today's debut!
