4th Birthday Blog Hop for Your Next Stamp


Well, Happy 4th Birthday to YOUR NEXT STAMP!  Four years ago, the virtual doors to the online YOUR NEXT STAMP store opened its doors and we are super excited to be sharing in our birthday bash with ya'll!  We are celebrating this great news with a special YNS BIRTHDAY HOP, and at the same time, introducing our newest illustrator and her images, Omnia Designs, "In Vogue"--by Penny Johnson.  This girl is so talented and ya'll are going to LOVE the stamps!

I'm the first one on this Birthday Hop, so ya'll came to the right place!  I hope you'll take a little time to enjoy the creative projects the YNS team has put together.


I chose to use ISABEL, who happens to be donning her mid-driff top and daisy dukes while shopping for extra healthy and organic fruits and veggies.  My Copic markers got a real workout, but it was totally relaxing to sit and color her for a while!  The sentiment is from the CUTE CRITTER SENTIMENTS set and it's embellished with the flower from the SPRING GARDEN die set and the LEAFY ACCENT dies.

Ok, it's time to hop on over to LAURA'S BLOG and see her Penny Johnson creation.

Before you go, be sure and leave a comment (and on everyone else's blog along the way, too) for your chance to WIN 1 of 4 prizes!  The winner will be announced on August 11th over on the YNS blog HERE.   Happy hopping, happy shopping (see above for specials), and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR NEXT STAMP!

SUSIE Q-TIP:  These images are fairly large, hence I made a 5x5" square card.  There's really not a whole lot of room for designing/embellishing--I didn't even use a sketch.  Use a patchwork of different coordinating papers for the main panel for a quick and easy background to a large and detailed image and cover the horizontal seam with another strip of paper, or ribbon.

Stamps:  Isabel, In Vogue, Cute Critter Sentiments (Your Next Stamp)
Paper:  White, Kraft (PTI), Sour Apple (MFT), Various Patterned Paper Scraps
Ink:  Birlliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
Accessories:  Spring Garden and Leafy Accent Dies (Your Next Stamp), Circle Punches, Heart Punch, Corner Rounder, Copic Markers, Adhesive Rhinestones, Button, Divine Twine (TCP), Hot Glue, Jody Boosters
Finished Size:  A2
