YNS August Birthday Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp Birthday Blog Hop!!!   

We are celebrating YNS' Birthday 
with a HUGE new release, 
HUGE  Blog Hop and 
HUGE prizes!   

Plus, there are store discounts and 
a free special Birthday set with any purchase over $40.00.

The full blog hop list is at the bottom of my post.  There are 3 prizes up for grabs...each is a $50.00 gift certificate to the YNS Store!!!   You have until August 11th at midnight EST to leave your comments.

With a celebration this big my post today is big, so let's get right to the creations.
Up first, is the new set Incognito!   I have wanted a set like this for a long time.   Not only can you build a monster, you can also use the set to add accessories to the YNS critter stamps.   My card today though is all about the monsters and in case you were wondering, even monsters go to the beach.
YNS Ingredients:   Incognito! Stamp set, Stitched Rectangle Dies, Stitched Strip Dies, Stitched Circle dies, Circle Dies, Cloud Dies, and Summer Fun Die Set
My card is for the Naughty or Nice challenge #18 - Fun in the Sun.   Heading to the beach is definitely summer fun!

Up next is a gift bag and 3x3 gift card with coordinating envelope.   It is a Birthday party after all, so we definitely need something to hold the gift.
YNS Ingredients:  Big Birthday Balloon Die Set, 3x3 Envelope Die and Whatnot Sentiments Set Five

The trio was created using the new Big Birthday Balloon Die set.   It comes with a balloon that is a great size for decorating bags and yet still works on a 3x3 card.  It also comes with 2 happy birthday dies.   My card features the scripty die, but there is also another standard alph die.   I die cut a few balloons, added twine for the string and finished it off with a sentiment.


Here is a close up of the 3x3 note card.   The floral with the red balloon is an envelope made with the new 3x3 Envelope Die - I just love matching envelopes to dress up a note card.

Now that you have seen a sampling of the new release what is on your wish list?   There are discounts in the YNS store, so now is a good time to shop!

Plus, there is a free set if you spend over $40.00.



I put together a trio of tags featuring the free set.


Have fun as you continue to hop!   Refer back to the full blog list below if you get lost along the way so that you do not miss anything.  There are so many great sets being released!  

Smiles,
Julie
