Your Next Stamp December (Mini Release) Hop

 Well, in keeping with the spirit of taking it slow this holiday season, I've managed to not post to my blog in about a week!  Sorry about that!  I'm kind of on a little design team vacation and have been busy with shopping, decorating the house (it's finally done) and replacing a GFCI switch in the garage (well, helping Eric replace it) after blowing it out with our Griswold family Christmas lights outside.  Anyway, in between all that I received my new super cute new stamp set and die set for this little Mini Release Blog Hop from Your Next Stamp.


I used the fantastic frog prin(cess) stamp and girlied it up with glitter, pink and purple and topped it all off with a rhinestone on the heart (new die from the new die set--more about it below).  There are four little critters in this stamp set called Smiley Happy Critters and the frog's name is Spike, but for my purposes with this card, SHE will be named Sparkle.  Teehee.


The new die collection is called YNS Whatnots. YNS Whatnots Seasons Set One is jam packed full of small seasonal dies (heart, snowflake, sun, lucky clover, dot border, etc.) which are awesome for dressing up your cards and tags! Both of these products are available NOW in the Your Next Stamp Store! Warning…both of these collections are highly addictive so be sure to start your collection now as we have lots more coming in 2013!

As always, we have a few things to point out about this release and how YOU can WIN some YNS goodness:
--Get 15% off your order with our Hop Special CODE:   YNSDEC2012
--The hop runs from today until Saturday, December 15th at midnight EST. We have 3 prize packs hidden amongst the DT Blogs, and you must comment on all of the blogs to win! The winners will be posted on the Your Next Stamp Blog Sunday, December 16th.

Now it’s time to hop on over to Maureen’s amazing blog, but don’t forget to leave a comment before you go! Thank you so much for stopping by and happy hopping!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Just because a card sketch calls for a rectangular main panel (by the way, this is an older Sweet Sunday Sketch from Karen), doesn't mean you can't add circle layers to the top of it as your main focal point.  Think outside the box if you want to create more layers.
