YNS March New Release Blog Hop

We are hopping!

The Your Next Stamp March release is in the YNS store right now!   This release has us hopping in to spring and hopping for a blog hop!



Scroll on down to the bottom of this post for the full set of hop stops.   Comment as you go, the more stops you comment on the greater the odds that you may be the lucky winner of a YNS store egift card!

Today I have 2 tags for you.  The new Affirmation Card with Peek a Boo Door works great on cards, but also as a tag. 





The die reminds me of a luggage tag, with the flap hiding the name and address, or in this case, a sentiment!


I added a hole punch at one end to thread the ribbon through and create the tags.

Your Next Stamp March Previews

Your Next Stamp is kicking off this week with previews of the March release.   The release arrives in the YNS store on Thursday, March 12, 2020!

This release will have you thinking of spring with flowers, lambs, bunnies and even a few owls.

Today is all about Easter and I am previewing the stamp set Birdie Easter Basket, along with the new die set Stitched Rectangle Frames.


The Stitched Rectangle Frame die set, allows you to create a simple border to frame your cards.   This card features the largest of the dies and fits the front of this 4.25" x 5.5" card perfectly.

The clouds were sponged on the card base, using the Puffy Cloud Border die as a stencil.  The Birdie Easter Basket was colored up, die cut out with the coordinating die and then popped up on the card base with foam dots.

Stop by the YNS Blog to see the other designers with previews, plus leave a comment on the YNS blog for a chance to win one of the sets being previewed!  

Smiles,
Julie

Your Next Stamp - 10 Year Celebration

Your Next Stamp is celebrating 10 years with a September release full of fun!   There are 7 days of previews, with giveaways each day!  The new release arrives in the YNS store on 9/12/19 at 11 am est.


Today is Day 6 of the previews and let's just say the set I am previewing is making it rain...money!  The stamp set is appropriately called Make it Rain!



To create a pocket to hold the money, a square of acetate was glued to the square frame die cut.  2 layers of foam tape was added to the sides and bottom of the square and then it was adhered to the card base.  This creates a pocket, with the top open and ready for the money to slide in.   

The dog was colored up with water color markers and die cut out with the coordinating die set.  Each of the sentiment strips was cut out with the YNS Scrapworks Stitched Strips die set.

YNS Supplies:  Make it Rain stamp and die sets, Stitched Square Frame die set, Scrapworks Stitched Strips die set



Want a chance to win one of the sets being previewed today?  Stop on by the YNS blog or YNS IG to leave a comment by 9/15/19 and be entered in the draw.  Plus there is a list of designers all sharing previews today.   
Smiles,

Your Next Stamp's June release arrives in the YNS Store tomorrow at 11 am.
Today, we are sharing previews!
The full list of designers with a preview is on the YNS Blog.

I am sharing a first look at the stamp set Cool Tees!

Tees are a staple of summer, so why not have one as a staple in your stamp stash?! My children love the ease and the variety of tees.  The Cool Tees stamp set is full of variety and fun, with lots of characters and sentiments to choose from.  Plus, it is easy to layer away with this set.


YNS Supplies:  Cool Tees stamp and die sets, Heart Ink Splatter stamp, Photo Booth stamp set (sentiment), Stick Frame Die set, gumdrops

The Tee was stamped, then colored and die cut out.  It is layered over a frame and the Heart Ink Splatter stamp, with a few gumdrops added for interest.

I will see you back here tomorrow for release day!  The fun starts at 11 am with a blog hop.  Plus the new stamps and dies will be in the YNS store.
