Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Your Next Stamp 'Fall into Halloween' BLOG HOP! I'm sure you've guessed from the title that we're showcasing some fabulous new YNS Fall and Halloween stamps today! These new stamps are available to buy RIGHT NOW from the Your Next Stamp store along with all your YNS favorites!




Not only do we have a fantastic blog hop for you, but today is also the official start of the new YNS DT term! Today is also a YNS Challenge day too, so we've combining our hop creations with our YNS Challenge #24 creations! [YNSC24 will run for 2 weeks as per usual (September 1-14) and although the DT have used Fall and Halloween stamps, the theme for this challenge is 'Anything Goes'.]


If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Heather's blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the start of the hop at the YNS Challenge blog, as you don't want to miss these fab new releases!


The hop starts today (Wednesday September 1st at 03:00 EST) and ends on Monday September 6th at midnight EST.


As always, here at Your Next Stamp, we have some wonderful prizes for you to win! Two lucky winners will be drawn at random to each receive a new release stamp package, but please make sure you comment at every stop along the hop to be eligible to be entered into the draw. We'd love you to join us over at our new Paper Craft Planet (PCP) Group, and so as an added incentive, anyone that becomes a member of our YNS PCP Group will automatically receive a second entry into the blog hop grand prize draw! How great is that? (It's free and easy to join PCP by the way!)


Not only is Karen offering two amazing prizes, she's also going to include a free surprise gift with every order placed at http://www.yournextstamp.com during the hop! And that's not all ... if you join our YNS Group over at PCP, you'll also be personally emailed an exclusive PCP-YNS-Group-only YNS store discount code!


So onto my blog hop creation! I have used the adorable new image Joyful Apple Basket:) 


Have you ever seen cuter apples???  I thought it would be perfect to make a little tag for a YUMMY chocolate covered caramel apple!  I also used a sentiment from the YNS set Elegant Greetings which you know I LOVE :)

Notice the little stand it's on?  This is one of the new templates from Perfect Presentation called Mini Cake Stand
I decorated it with some fab Lime Stripe Grosgrain ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon and tied the tag on with some Orange Baker's Twine.

So now it's time for you to hop on over to Linda's fabulous blog as she is the next stop on our hop, but don't forget to leave me a comment before you go!

Thanks so much for hopping with us today! I hope you enjoy our new release!

Kerri
