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!
Smiles,
Julie

  9. Hi, Julie! Did you get those Christmas cards out yet? Just sent mine out yesterday. These candles are soooo pretty! I have never tried this technique yet, but it's always on the "to-do" list. And that holder is definitely the perfect packaging for them. Merry Christmas!
