Hi there everyone and welcome to the Your Next Stamp July New Release Blog Hop!
If you have not already started your happy dance then get it going because all the new stamps and dies are available in the store right now.
The blog hop starts at our July Guest Francine's blog so head on over there to kick it off. Check out the full list of blog hop participants at the bottom of this post. The more blogs you visit and leave a comment on the greater your odds of winning a $20 gift certificate to the YNS Store. Woo Hoo! You have until July 7th at midnight EST to leave your comments.
So what is all the excitement about? The new release is full of sweet critters and a whole lot more! Rainbows, flowers, penguins and a clown are just a few things new to the store today. There are so many new stamps and dies that I can't list them all. You will just have to visit all the blogs on the hop and then head on over to the YNS store to check it all out!
My favorite new set is called Sticky Note and it does not have anything to do with office supplies...check out the FROGS!!! Frogs are a fave in my household, we have a menagerie of animals, including a couple tree frogs. They definitely stick to the glass walls of their tank. Fun fact, did you know that frogs don't drink water? They absorb it through their skin. With 2 young sons we are constantly reading and learning about animals.
Here is my card featuring one of the frogs from Sticky Note. I am going for the look of a poison dart frog with this one (I had a 7 year old consultant assist with the proper colors!).

My card is based on the latest SCS sketch.
Up next is a card featuring the new floral background stamp - Flower Splatter.

I misted watercolor paper with water and then stamped the flowers on it to give it a smudged/blurry result. Once it dried a bit I stamped the flowers a second time randomly. The tag features the armadillo and sentiment from the new set Word Critters - Exotic Animals.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have fun hopping and now is the time to also do the shopping as Karen is offering a discount in the store!
