Your Next Stamp August Release and Birthday Blog Hop



It has arrived! The new release and 6th birthday celebration for Your Next Stamp! This release has some many fun options of what to do with them that I am sure if you saw the sneaky peeks yesterday, you would concur! :)




For my first card, I created a super fun shaker card using the new set and die collection of Coco Sweet Treats.  The die set gives you a fun option to be able to cut out he center of the gumball machine or jar to make a shaker card. Of course, I did.




 The image was colored with Copics and paired with some paper from AC and finished with some of the new yummy gumdrops called Ocean Mist and Candy Land.  I added some of the gumdrops to the outside of the window for a different element and mixed in with the "gumball" cutouts, some sequins.

For my second card, I used a super duper fun die set called Big Balloon.  It is perfect for decorating a gift or making a fun card with a statement.

When making this, I don't know why tie dye was in my head, but a mix of colors is what I wanted.  I figured it was a perfect time to play with some distress inks and create the swirls of colors on my card. The sentiments were cut out and glued over the balloon and twine also from YNS.



In celebration of YNS 6th birthday, not only is there the hop where Karen is giving away 3 $50 gift certificates (wowzers!), but with your purchase of $40 or more, you get a special FREE birthday stamp set!! But the fun doesn't stop there! With increments of  your spending dollars, you will get an additional percentage off your purchase!! See the banner below for the breakdown.



Happy birthday Your Next Stamp and here's to another 6 years! Thanks for stopping by and leaving me your kind comments.
