Please scroll down for the Your Next Stamp new release blog hop!


Hello!  I wanted to share one more card that I made with this months SOTM-Birthday Bash!  This set is so much fun and makes it so simple to whip up a quick and easy birthday card!

For my card today I stamped the two rectangular images in the set and cut them out with the coordinating Party Time Dies.  You can use these shapes as presents or to build a cake like I did today:)  I stamped the candle image onto the oval frame and then popped up the cake over it.  I stamped the sentiment from the set onto a Banner Stacklets 1 Die and added a border using the TE Open Scallop Border Die.  


The dp I used is Simple Stories 24/7.  

I'm off to run some errands!  Thank you for stopping by today and have a wonderfu Wednesday!  I'm looking forward to the women's ice skating competition tonight!

Your Next Stamp February Release Blog Hop!

12:00 AM 22 Comments

Hello!  Welcome to the Your Next Stamp February New Release Blog Hop!  We have some really fun stamps and dies for you this month including some stamp sets with coordinating dies!

The hop begins here on my blog, and will run from today until February 21st at midnight. If you leave comments on all of the blogs along the hop, you will have a chance to win a $15.00 YNS Gift Certificate!


For my first project, I made a bookmark using the new YNS clear set Tea-rific! along with the coordinating die set called Tea-rific! Die Set.  I just love that sentiment!  For me it's some home brewed sweet tea and a good book:)

I cut my bookmark out with the YNS Bookmark/Tag Layered Die Set along with some Doodlebug Design Day to Day dp  I stamped my images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copics.  I cut them out with the Tea-rific! Die Set and cut my sentiment out with a YNS Whatnot Seasons Set One Die.


For my next project, I made a cute little thank you card using the new clear set Thanks a Latte:


I once again stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black and used some more Doodlebug Design Day to Day dp. I cut the image out with the coordinating Thanks a Latte Die Set and layered it over a pretty mat that I cut with the new Heart Doily Die Set-Love it! The sentiment was stamped onto a banner that I cut once again with a YNS Whatnot Seasons Set One Die, and I cut the bottom border with a die from the Journaled Weekly Die Set .


The layout I used MOJO329.


Karen also has a ton of specials going on in the Your Next Stamp Store!  Most stamps and dies are marked 20% off so take advantage of these great deals!

Now it's time to hop on over to Julie's Blog, but don't forget to leave a comment before you go!  Happy hopping and shopping!
