Your Next Stamp’s December New Release Hop!

Hi, everybody! I’m so glad you stopped by today! Since I’m a guest designer this month at Your Next Stamp, I’m joining in the blog hop to celebrate their December release! 

You’ll find the full list of blogs in today’s hop at the bottom of my post, and make sure to visit each blog (and leave a comment) for your chance to WIN a $20 gift certificate to the YNS Store!

I’ve made a couple of cards to share with you today! The new stamps are adorable and are super-fun to color…they are perfect for creating cards, tags and other projects for the holidays!

My first card features “January” and her little penguin pal. I also used some of the Sparkly Teal Gumdrops to embellish my card. 

My second card features “Aspen“. I used some of YNS’s Carribean Punch Glittered Gumdrops to accent a few of the snowflakes on the patterned paper.

You’ll have until December 9 at midnight (EST) to visit all of the blogs in the hop and leave your comments for your chance to win the gift certificate! Winners will be posted on the YNS blog before the DT Dare challenge on December 11!

Your Next Stamp – New Release Preview

Hi, everybody! It’s getting close to new release time at Your Next Stamp, so I have a sneak peek of “Aspen“, one of the new clear stamp sets being released at YNS in December:
I created a little scene on my card. To make the water, I used Glossy Accents over the patterned paper. I cut an arch of white card stock and added glitter glue to create the snow.
Here’s another look at the card front, so you can see that she’s attached her to the card with some foam tape for dimension. The snowflakes are accented with Sparkly Teal Gumdrops.
Be sure to come back tomorrow, when we kick off the December release with a blog hop! You could be one of the lucky winners of a gift certificate to the YNS Store! And, I’ll have a special sale code for your next purchase at Your Next Stamp
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have some crafty time coming up this weekend!
