YNS July New Release Blog Hop

The Your Next Stamp July New Release is available in the YNS store right now!

We are hosting a blog hop to celebrate.  As you hop you will get to see creations made with all the new release items, plus, if you leave comments along the way you will be entered in the draw to win a stamp set of your choice.  The more stops you comment on the greater the odds of winning.  The full list of stops is at the very bottom of this post.

This release has a variety of products with 5 new stamp sets with coordinating dies and 5 new die sets, plus a new gumdrop pack!

My first card features the new set Strike Up Some Fun!
 The card is laid out with 3 panels and a different scene in each to mimic a comic strip.


Next is the stamp set Happy Hour.

A shelf was created out of paper and then 3 drinks were die cut and layered on top.  Add a bit of Stickles to the margarita to work as salt.


Now get hopping and do some shopping!  Karen is offering a great discount in the YNS Store!

It's a YNS July New Release Peek

Right now though, we have peeks for you!   Stop on by the YNS blog for a full list of blogs with peeks.

I am sharing a preview of the new set Hedgehugs.   There many not be a hedgehog on my card, but this card is full of hugs, just like a thank you card should be.

I took one of the wreaths from the set and laid it over a die cut circle, then popped it up on the card base to give it dimension.

YNS Summer Kickoff

Summer fun on the way with this month's Your Next Stamp Design Team Dare!

Stop on by the YNS blog for a chance to comment to win a stamp set of your choice!

I went with fish...fishing or swimming in the ocean...


The Tiny Waves die was used as a stencil and the water was sponged on.  Layered the 3 water colored fish over the water and then added a sentiment to the bottom.

Easy and fun!
Happy Stamping and good luck!

Looking for something crafty to do this weekend?  Your Next Stamp's challenge #88 is going on right now!  Play along for the chance to win a YNS Store gift certificate!!!

I took inspiration from the sketch for this one and pulled in pink...



Lots of white and a bit of water coloring on the helicopter and clouds.   I am addicted to water coloring.  It has been a long time since I pulled out the Copics!

So which inspires you?  The sketch or the colors?
