October Blog Hop From Your Next Stamp


Well, today the design team at Your Next Stamp is bringing you our October Release Hop, showcasing all the SWEET new images including some stamps from TWO new artists--woOHOooOO!!!  We are so excited to welcome Cory Designs and Mabel Designs to the YNS family.  We are all just LOVING the new images, and we know you will too!  We also have some new stamps from artist Heather Rolin and two awesome new dies!

Of course we have some amazing prizes up for grabs!  Just leave comments on all of the DT blogs for you chance to win one of THREE new release prize packs!!!  You have until Sunday, October 14th at midnight (EST) to comment.  Karen will post the winners on the YNS Blog on October 15th. 

I have to admit, I like birds.  I know, I know some of ya'll are probably ooged out by them, but I think they are cute!  Not in a "The Birds" movie sort of way--that was the scariest movie I ever saw when I was little!  I grew up mostly in the country (Katy, TX when it WAS country) and we had all sorts of them on our seven acres of land.  It was a big deal to see cardinals, bluejays and woodpeckers, so I was always scrambling to the window to see if I could watch them for a minute before they flew off.  I still like to do that.  We actually have a hawk that visits our backyard!  EEK!  Anyway, this little birdie is of the sweetest kind and is simply here to wish everyone some early holiday cheer!  It's from the new stamp set called The Christmas Robin from one of our new lines, Mabel Designs.  Hmmm...don't tell anyone, but today she's a cardinal! 

By the way, a little birdie told me that all of the new stamps and dies (like that FABULOUS MUST HAVE FENCE DIE) are available NOW in the YNS Store PLUS Karen is offering a new release special – 15% off your order using code YNSOCTNR!
Now it's time to fly on over to our Guest Designer, sweet Stephanie Hargis' blog, but don’t forget to leave me a comment before you go to possibly win a new release prize pack!  Tweet Tweet!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Use washi tape to give pattern and texture to punched out shapes.  Just cover a section of paper big enough for your shape and punch it out.  I did this on the little circles behind my buttons on this card.  Try it.
