New Release Time for Your Next Stamp


Well, other than my internet acting up, I think things around here are finally calming down (whispering that and knocking on wood so I don't jinx it).  No more black clouds over our house for the moment, so hopefully I'll get to finally play with my new Silhouette Cameo that I got for Christmas.  I haven't even installed the blade!  I got to go to my bestie, Jen del Muro's house yesterday and we worked on a couple of things for Your Next Stamp.  Why you ask?  Because there's a FABULOUS NEW RELEASE available and ya'll are smack dab in the middle of the YNS Blog Hop!

We are so excited about the hop today because this release is HUGE! We have had a blast playing with all of the cuteness, and we know you will too! We are also introducing another new illustrator to the YNS family~Angie Blom! I think we all fell in love with her new Insta Love Set which totally rocks!


First, here's a closeup of the card I made over at Jen's which uses the new Kindness Ellie set.  It had been a while since I colored one of the sweet Ellies, so she and I had a little bonding time the night before I went to Jen's so I'd have something already colored and ready to play with.  I used the new Polaroid frame die to create a fun backdrop for her and added the hearts from one of my favorite YNS die sets--Whatnot Seasons Set One.


The other day I was looking through a couple of my craft drawers and came across these oversized paper clips that I have had for "centuries".  I thought the new Cute Critters Cat Sign set would make a fun topper for the clip.  Wouldn't these make cute Valentines Day or teacher gifts?

Ok here's a little info you NEED to know about this release:
1.  We have 3 prizes hidden along the hop! Just make sure you leave a comment on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win an amazing new release prize pack!!! Winners will be announced On the Your Next Stamp Blog on January 28th.

 
2.  We are also trying to reach more of ya'll on Facebook and Pinterest, so head on over to the Your Next Stamp Page (Facebook) and ‘Like’ us AND find our Pinterest boards HERE and "follow" us!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  Ok, by the overwhelming response, ya'll like my SUSIE Q-TIPS I include with every blog post, so I guess they shall stay!  Thanks for letting me know...You like me, you really like me!!  So I thought the plant looked a little sad in it's plain blue pot for my card.  Nothing that a white gel pen couldn't remedy.  I just added the pinstriped lines for a criss-cross pattern.
