2022 Cat Lovers Blog Hop

Your Next Stamp is a sponsor of the 2022 Cat Lover's Blog Hop and I am joining in the fun with a YNS project featuring a cat of course!

See all the hop details and link up your own creation HERE to join in the fun and be entered for the chance to win one of the many prizes, including a YNS e-gift card!

YNS Supplies: Holiday Magic Stamp and Die Sets, 3x3 Snowfall Panel Die, 3x3 Envelope Die, Pop Dots

For this gift enclosure card, I started with the 3x3 Snowfall Panel Die and cut it out of watercolor paper.  Then I cut it 2 more times, so that I could get 3 snow hills.  Those 3 hills were glued together to give dimension to the card. Then I stamped, colored and die cut the lamp, cat and tree from the Holiday Magic Stamp set.  Each of these was layered over the snowfall background using YNS pop dots.  The finishing touch is some glittery snow aka snowflake paste, on the tree and lamp post.  This card is just about 3", the perfect size for a custom made envelope using the 3x3 Envelope Die.  Love this die for making my own envelopes.  Plus, you can get creative and use patterned paper whenever you want.

    YNS Holiday Release - Llamas in the Spotlight

     Your Next Stamp's Holiday release is available right now in the YNS Store!

    The team is sharing projects featuring all the stamps, dies and stencils in the new release from 11/15 - 11/20/21.  Check out the projects each day on IG and the designer's blogs, then comment by 11/21/21 at midnight EST to be entered to win one of 2 $25.00 YNS e-gift cards.  Head on over to the YNS blog for a full list of designers with projects each day.

    Although this is a holiday release, many of the sets are designed to work year round.  My card features the new set La La Llama and it has sentiments for Christmas and many other occasions.

    The sweet llama is colored up with shades of purple to celebrate a birthday.  The Holiday Stripes stencil was used to create the stripes behind the llama.

    The gift tag was created by die cutting an extra llama, then sandwiching a string loop between the 2 llamas.  This makes the tag sturdier too.

    Just imagine switching up the colors and adding some of the gifts to create a Christmas card.   What about tons of llama tags for all your Christmas presents?!

    Your Next Stamp September 2021 Birthday New Release

     Happy 12th Birthday Your Next Stamp!

    Today is the day!  The new YNS store opens AND the September new release arrives!

    Join us as we hop on IG to celebrate.  The hop starts on YNS' IG and continues on...  You do not want to miss out on the chance to win YNS gift certificates!

    Plus, on IG, you will get to see the project I created featuring the Star Circle Frames die set AND the Birthday Greetings sentiment set.  I am always drawn to lots of white on my cards.  CAS all the way, most of the time.  I LOVE the Star Circle Frames Die set because it pairs perfectly with the YNS Circle die set.   It makes it so easy to layer away.

    Now head on over to IG and get hopping.  Then stop by the YNS store and get shopping.

    YNS September Preview Day 1

     Your Next Stamp is back from vacation!

    To kick off the fun, there is a new release on the way.  Today, I get to share a preview of some of the fun stamps and dies on the way.

    Of course with a new release, there are also prizes.  You could win one of the stamp sets being previewed today by leaving comments on the designer's posts.  Head on over to the YNS blog to see all the designers sharing a preview today.

    One of my favorite occasions to create a card for is Birthdays!   This fits, because YNS is celebrating it's 12th Birthday!  And, I get to preview the stamp set Balloon Bouquet.

    I did a little masking with Balloon Bouquet to make the bouquet of balloons even bigger.  The coordinating die set was used to die cut out the bow and Birthday banner.  The balloons are colored with water color markers.   Easy, peasy, and fun!

    Be sure to keep an eye on the YNS blog for more previews.  The new release arrives in the YNS store on Thursday and there is an IG hop planned with more chances to win YNS prizes.
