YNS Holiday Release - Llamas in the Spotlight

 Your Next Stamp's Holiday release is available right now in the YNS Store!

The team is sharing projects featuring all the stamps, dies and stencils in the new release from 11/15 - 11/20/21.  Check out the projects each day on IG and the designer's blogs, then comment by 11/21/21 at midnight EST to be entered to win one of 2 $25.00 YNS e-gift cards.  Head on over to the YNS blog for a full list of designers with projects each day.


Although this is a holiday release, many of the sets are designed to work year round.  My card features the new set La La Llama and it has sentiments for Christmas and many other occasions.


The sweet llama is colored up with shades of purple to celebrate a birthday.  The Holiday Stripes stencil was used to create the stripes behind the llama.


The gift tag was created by die cutting an extra llama, then sandwiching a string loop between the 2 llamas.  This makes the tag sturdier too.

Just imagine switching up the colors and adding some of the gifts to create a Christmas card.   What about tons of llama tags for all your Christmas presents?!

Your Next Stamp September 2021 Birthday New Release

 Happy 12th Birthday Your Next Stamp!

Today is the day!  The new YNS store opens AND the September new release arrives!

Join us as we hop on IG to celebrate.  The hop starts on YNS' IG and continues on...  You do not want to miss out on the chance to win YNS gift certificates!





Plus, on IG, you will get to see the project I created featuring the Star Circle Frames die set AND the Birthday Greetings sentiment set.  I am always drawn to lots of white on my cards.  CAS all the way, most of the time.  I LOVE the Star Circle Frames Die set because it pairs perfectly with the YNS Circle die set.   It makes it so easy to layer away.

Now head on over to IG and get hopping.  Then stop by the YNS store and get shopping.

YNS September Preview Day 1

 Your Next Stamp is back from vacation!

To kick off the fun, there is a new release on the way.  Today, I get to share a preview of some of the fun stamps and dies on the way.

Of course with a new release, there are also prizes.  You could win one of the stamp sets being previewed today by leaving comments on the designer's posts.  Head on over to the YNS blog to see all the designers sharing a preview today.

One of my favorite occasions to create a card for is Birthdays!   This fits, because YNS is celebrating it's 12th Birthday!  And, I get to preview the stamp set Balloon Bouquet.



I did a little masking with Balloon Bouquet to make the bouquet of balloons even bigger.  The coordinating die set was used to die cut out the bow and Birthday banner.  The balloons are colored with water color markers.   Easy, peasy, and fun!

Be sure to keep an eye on the YNS blog for more previews.  The new release arrives in the YNS store on Thursday and there is an IG hop planned with more chances to win YNS prizes.

Smiles,

Julie

YNS March 2021 New Release Preview Day One

It's time for the previews to begin! Your Next Stamp's March 2021 release arrives in the YNS Store this Thursday at 11 am. Today, however, I get to share a preview of 2 fun sets and a new die!

If you love the YNS monsters, then you will love the new additions to the family!  It's the Fuzzy Monsters and they are soft, round and yes, FUZZY!

There are 6 new monsters to choose from and this slimline card is able to fit 5 of the cuties!
Each monster was colored up and then die cut out with the coordinating die set.
 

The sentiment across the bottom was created with the new 3D Letters and Numbers stamp set.  The exclamation point is the "i" upside down and the dash is the dot on the "i"!
The monsters and sentiment are layered on the new Slim Stitched Die set.

We are previewing another stamp set as well today, Cloud Fun.  Stop on by the YNS blog for a chance to see the list of all the designers with previews.  Plus, you don't want to miss out on the chance to win one of these sets.  There is a comment to win giveaway going on!

I will be back tomorrow with another preview!

Fly By Hi

 Are you looking for a quick and easy card?   I have it for you!

A cat, clouds, and a huge HI!  This is my CAS start (or end?) to the week. 

In my mind, this card started out with a rectangle window with the sentiment and clouds inside.  Then I planned on layering the cat outside the window. Once I was ready to start layering though,  I did the debate and the window lost. 

 

Supplies:  VersaFine Claire ink, The Cat's Pajamas stamp set, PTI Soft Stone cardstock, foam dots, Zig Clean Color real brush watercolor markers

This card is for a couple challenges going on right now, the Splitcoaststampers CAS cloud challenge and The Paper Players cat challenge.  Clouds and a cat, a great combo!

Smiles,

Julie
