New Release Blog Hop From Your Next Stamp

Well, my blog has been a busy place this last week, huh? (I know, I know, ya'll are saying, "it's about time"! I hear ya! I'm trying to be a better blogger, plus I miss YA'LL too when I don't get to hang out online with you!) I don't see an end in sight just yet--lucky for you!

Today is RELEASE DAY from YOUR NEXT STAMP, and we've got an inspiring Blog Hop lined up for ya'll to peruse. We are so excited about our hop this month, because we are introducing a new artist to the YNS family-Ann Ellis! We just know you are going to love her fun, contemporary style! We also have a few new Ellie stamps and a new Fhiona too! Plus some fabulous new dies that coordinate with some existing YNS stamps – Window Play and a selection of dies that go with the popular Mini Fhiona stamps! WOW, right? All the new stamps and dies are available to purchase today in the YNS Store! To start at the beginning, hop on over to VERONICA'S amazing blog!

Ok, on to my card--I used the new Sunflower stamp set from our new artist, Ann Ellis. I couldn't wait to stamp the flowers, cut them out and layer them all up. The great thing about this new set is that it comes with lots of variations for the leaves, centers and stem. It even includes a cut little watering can! My 11 year old daughter, Lindsie stood over my shoulder while I made this card and directed my "creative flow". I followed all of her suggestions (except she didn't like the brown paper, but I did) so she basically designed this card, and I really like the end result. She's going to be my "partner in crafting crime" when she gets a little older, I just know it!

Here's the 411 on the new release so that ya'll will be IN THE KNOW!:

1. The hop will run from today, July 6th at 6AM until Tuesday, July 10th at 11:59PM EST.

2. We have 4 special prizes hidden amongst the blogs, so make sure you leave comments for your chance to win!!! Each winner will receive one of the new Ann Ellis Stamp Sets!
