Your Next Stamp January Release Blog Hop
It's here! The time you get to see all the fabulous projects for the January release with Your Next Stamp during our Blog Hop. This is such a fun release full of various sets to include love, funnies, and cuties. Karen has once again knocked it out of the park with this one.
The set I am sharing is once called Cute Foodies. Hee hee... it is perfect for me because I am a foodie and don't discriminate good food of any kind. This will be perfect when giving yummy treats out or for making tags to attach to yummy treats. For this first project, it is a card made keeping younger kids in mind. Something fun and I even used the YNS Mini Balloon trio for some added celebration.
The image was colored in with Copics before cutting it out with the coordinating die. I popped him up over the Scallop Circle and cut some balloons to attach to the hand. I did used some black card stock to layer over the balloons using the same dies for added dimension. It was finished with some YNS GreenTwine and Gumdrops.
For the second project, I am using the new Shopping Bag Treat Bag. This is so fun to use and I keep thinking of all the fun favors or surprise treats I will make with this.
I love how this bag has a window and even the holes for adding ribbon already to go! For this, you will need to cut out 2 treat bags to put together. Very easy to do since the score lines are also already incorporated into the die. I colored the image with Copics and again used the coordinating die to cut him out. He is popped up over the scallop while I used the cut out of the window for the sentiment to be placed at the bottom. The bag was finished with some ribbon and of course filled with yummy candy first.
Before you hop off to check out the fabulous projects, keep in mind this sweet deal Karen is offering for the release. I have to say she always offers up a generous discount or deal for the new release. Not too many companies do that, so snatch up what you like while you can on a deal!
Don't forget to leave a little love on each of the blogs as you hop for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate to the YNS Store! A random winner will be chosen on January 20th.
