Your Next Stamp Holidays Blog Hop 2013

Welcome to a special Your Next Stamp Holiday Hop! We are sharing projects made with YNS Holiday Stamps and Dies to wish our fabulous YNS customers a very happy holiday season! I know you will find tons of inspiration throughout the hop so be sure to start at the very beginning with Laura.   If you've been hopping along, then you should have arrived from Wendy's blog.

You have from today until Saturday, December 21st at midnight (EST) to hop with us! If you leave a comment on all of the blogs along the hop, you could win a $25 YNS Gift Certificate!!! Karen will announce the winners on the YNS Blog on Sunday, December 22nd.

My project for today happened by chance.  It started out as a craft for the kids and well, of course I couldn't help but join them in the fun!

I bought votive candles for the kids to decorate using the tissue paper technique (here).  The kids drew on their tissue paper and I made a couple using the snowflake stamps from Warm Winter Wishes.

Then I realized that 2 votive candles fit in the Kup Holder perfectly!!!  Such a great way to package the candles.  I decorated the Kup Holder with a matching snowflake cut out with Warm Winter Wishes dies and then layered it on top of the scallop shape from the Pocket Die Set.
Karen is having the biggest Your Next Stamp sale of the year with up to 30% off your order!  Rumor has it she is trying to make room for all the new stamps and dies heading our way in 2014!

Make sure you take advantage of these amazing deals! Notice that the sale runs thru the end of the year (what a great way to spend money you receive from Christmas)!  Now it's time to hop on over to Thanh's blog, but don't forget to leave a comment before you go! As always, happy hopping and shopping, and have a wonderful holiday season!

A Caroling Dexter Goes

There are some new cuties to be found at Little Miss Muffet Stamps today!  The new release features several Dexter the penguin digis and a trio of new Sugar 'n Spice Dolls - all will make you smile. 

The cute digi Dexter Caroling takes center stage on my card...
My card is based on sketch #46 from i {heart} card sketches.  As you can see I went off of memory when making my card and skewed the one mat a bit, but the inspiration is there!
Are you done with Christmas shopping yet?  Check out this holiday special!!!
Plus, head on over to the blog to check out more inspiration with the new stamps from my team mates!!    Remember there is still a challenge going on...You've Been Framed.  If you head to Facebook there is a challenge to use the Zen Border to be found there too!  Lots to do :>)
Have a wonderful day!!!

Your Next Stamp December Challenge

December has arrived and so has a new challenge at the Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog!
There are 2 challenges to choose from, a sketch or an inspiration photo.  I went with the inspiration and kept is CAS with purple and stamps from the Holiday Sentiments set
 I stamped "snow" in 3 shades of purple and then stamped "all that glitters is" over it and embossed the black only.  I then brushed each of the words "snow" with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush pen - clear.

Here is the sketch and photo so you can play along.  Check out the Your Next Stamp Challenge Blog for all the details - there is a prize involved!

Time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps and this is a fun one...You've Been Framed!  Just add a frame - any kind of frame will do.  

I went the photo frame route and used a polaroid for one of the mats behind Melba Flora Hatter.
A bit of embossing and a bow with some peach thrown in too.
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see your take on the challenge!
