Good morning and welcome to our Your Next Stamp October release After Party!!!  The team is back today to share even more inspiration with these fabulous new stamps and dies.

For today's card I used the sweet Waddles - Snow Fun! clear stamp set.  I colored these cuties with copics and then added some glitter to the wings and little hat.  I cut the image out using the coordinating Waddles - Snow Fun! Die Set.  I also added some Green Apple and Pink Lemonade Glittered Gumdrops.  

Here's a photo of the entire set.  Lots of cuteness here, right?  Be sure to visit the YNS Blog to see everyone's amazing projects!

Thanks for stopping by.

Girl's Night Out!

Good morning everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Today I'm sharing a card using one of the adorable Art Impression Halloween stamps.

This little witch is Girl's Night Out!  After I stamped the image, I masked her and then stenciled some purple clouds.  I colored her with copics and colored pencils.  The fun papers are by Doodlebug Designs - I always love their bright Halloween dp.  I added a diecut star, seam binding bow, and some silver sequins to give it some sparkle.  This was a quick & easy Halloween card!  Art Impressions has lots of cute Halloween stamps and you can find them here.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a fabulous day!

Hugs, Anita

Hello and welcome to our October New Release Blog Hop!

We have a fun lineup of stamps and dies for you this month.  We've got fabulous stamp sets and coordinating dies that will be perfect for your Christmas cards this year.  We've also got a new set of sentiments that I know you're going to love!  The entire release is available now in the YNS Store.

We've got lots of amazing guests joining our DT today!  You should have arrived here from Kelli's blog.  Make sure you hop around to all of the blogs featured in the link list located at the bottom of this post for lots of inspiration using the new products.  Be sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win one of FIVE $20.00 YNS gift certificates!  Karen will announce the five random winners on the YNS Blog on October 22.  

For my first card I used the adorable Darling Deer clear stamp.  I love this image and think it's a gorgeous stamp for holiday cards!  I added some glitter to the snow and then used the Jingle Bell Border Die to cut the jingle bells from some gold glitter paper. 

The second card uses the fun, playful Waddles - Snow Fun!  Another perfect set for your holiday cards!  This set includes four penguin images and perfect sentiments to go along with the penguins!  I think this may be my favorite set from the new release.  You just can't get much cuter than these little guys!  I also used the coordinating Waddles - Snow Fun!
