Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop



Welcome to the Your Next Stamp March New Release BLOG HOP!

First off, I just want to wish Simonne (our WONDERFUL DT coordinator) a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!  You know how much we love and appreciate you, girl!!!

We have some amazing new YNS stamps to show you today! These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Your Next Stamp store along with all your YNS favourites.


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


The hop starts today (8 March 2011 at 08:00 EST) and ends on 11 March 2011 at midnight EST.


As always here at Your Next Stamp, we have a wonderful prize for you to win! One lucky winner will be drawn at random from the links in the linky list to receive a surprise package of new release stamps!


You will see that every stop along the hop has a linky list - this is the SAME linky list posted on every blog, so that you can enter the prize draw from any stop along the hop (although we hope you will visit every blog!). The linky will update itself on everyone's blog when a link is entered - how cool is that? Please remember to only enter your name ONCE into the linky list during the hop - you do NOT need to enter your name at every stop and multiple entries will be removed. It's not a requirement for you to comment at every stop along the hop to be eligible to be entered into the prize draw, but the DT would sure love to hear what you think of our new release creations!


Karen is also running a special 10% off promotion from today until 14 March 2011. Just enter the code YNSMARCH when checking out to apply your 10% discount. There are also some FANTASTIC special offers and promotions running over at the YNS store at the moment, so once you've finished the hop be sure to hop on over and check out the clearance sections: 35% off selected stamps - 50% off selected stamps - 60% off selected bare rubber stamps - 35% off selected embellishments - 35% off selected DP sampler packs. WOW! What a great time to grab a bargain!


For my first blog hop creation I have used this super adorable image called Ellie's Kitty:


Oh my goodness, so CUTE, Right?!  The dp is Echo Park Paper Co. Be Mine (so glad I finally broke down and bought some:) and the layout is the February Jen's Sketch For You To Try which I just had to use again.  I also used some FAB Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon~ 1.5 inch Black Gingham, Black with White Stitches, and Black Licorice Baker's Twine.  Here's a peek at the inside:



I computer generated the sentiment and cut it out with a Labels Four Nestie.  For my next project I used the new Dale Designs Sheep:



I paired this cutie with some Echo Park Paper Co. Little Girl dp and the Viva La Verve March 2011 Week 2 Sketch.  I used some Sheer Ruffle Edge White Ribbon by May Arts from Really Reasonable Ribbon and the PTI Cloud Die to complete my project.


Here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:




So now it's time for you to hop on over to Dana's Blog as she is the next stop on our hop, but I'd love it if you left me a comment before you go!


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

Hugs,
Kerri

Aw, thank you for the birthday wishes hun! You are the sweetest! :o) Loving your blog hop creations - WOW!! Ha ha, I see you broke down and bought the EP Be Mine paper, LOL! I just LOVE the colour combo of this DP, and it's on special in one of my fave UK craft stores ... so I might have to finally break down too and spend some of my birthday money!!!

I love her in pink & grey and your sentiment is purr-fect (sorry, couldn't resist, LOL!). Adore your sweet Dale's sheep card too - such pretty spring colours, yum! Hope you're having a great day!
