YNS October New Release Preview

The Your Next Stamp October release arrives in the YNS store tomorrow at 11 am est.  We will be hopping to celebrate and giving away a $25.00 YNS gift card.

That's tomorrow...but we did not want to make you wait to see all the cuteness in the new release, so we are sharing previews today.  Stop on by the YNS blog for a full list of previews  Then, remember to stop back tomorrow and hop, hop, hop along with us!

I mentioned cuteness and it does not get much cuter than sheep that are ready for the holidays.  I chose the one that is knitting, but the stamp set Fleece Navidad is full of cuties!  The sentiment is die cut from the new Rectangle Frame set.

I kept it CAS, with the Puffy Cloud die used as a stencil at the top.  The Grass Tufts die cut creates the border at the bottom.  Everything was colored up with water color markers - my go to coloring medium lately.

This set comes with a variety of images and sentiments.

YNS Monochromatic Feature Day

On the YNS Blog today you can win a stamp set of your choice!  Stop on by the YNS blog Feature Day post and leave a comment to be entered in the draw.

Our Feature Day post is full of monochromatic creations.   I went with my fave - any shade of aqua and added in some sugar with the Sweet Treat Cart set.


The round circle was sponged and then stamped and inlaid in to the rectangle mat. The treat cart was layered over it.  I kept it uncolored intentionally, trying to keep with the monochromatic theme.

Smiles,
Julie
