Look What's New--Blog Hop at Your Next Stamp!!!

Your Next Stamp is Celebrating their New Website Launch with a New Release and a Fun Blog Hop!

Karen started Your Next Stamp 5 years ago, and she's celebrating, not only with some sweet new stamps, dies, and Gumdrops, but also with a super fun blog hop, and she is giving away 5, yes 5, $20 YNS Gift Certificates! Whoo Hoo!

Here's what I did with one of the newest stamp sets:
I was so excited when Karen contacted me about being a Guest Designer for a Special Blog Hop for Your Next Stamp, and when this adorable stamp, Seasonal Sweeties, arrived, I couldn't wait to color it up with my Copics! The little critters are super sweet and it was lots of fun "decorating" their personal stockings. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-Press It Blending Card. After coloring, I die cut the image with a Labels 30 Spellbinders die, trimming the ends off. To make the red borders along the top and bottom, I just cut pieces of the dp with the same die and glued them behind the image. The card base is cut from a Labels 28 die, and I dry embossed the snowflake image with a Snowflake Swirl embossing folder. The rounded strip of red dp is a smaller Labels 28 die, of which I trimmed the top and bottom from. Karen also sent me a package of Green Apple Glittered Gumdrops. How'd she know that's my favorite color??? ;) I used two of the larger ones on the red dp and two tiny ones on the top and bottom of the image.
This stamp set comes with a sentiment, too! I love the elegant font.

Now, about that Blog Hop. 5 random winners will receive $20 to spend in the YNS Store – prizes are randomly placed amongst all the blogs, and all you have to do to be eligible is comment, and the more blogs you visit and comment on, the more chances you have to WIN!
And, that's not all! If you create an account in the new store, you will get a code for 10% off your entire purchase in the new store, plus Karen has marked the new releases down 15%! So, really, everyone is a winner! ;) 

So, what are you waiting for? Leave a comment here, and get hopping! And, once you've finished the hop, create an account in the store and go shopping. You are going to LOVE all the new products!
