YNS May Release Hop!!



Who's ready for some fun new products from Your Next Stamp? All of the May Release is now available in the shop and we are kicking things off with a fun Blog Hop! 


My first project using a fun new set called From the Heart. I stamped the images onto a piece of White card stock with some Ombre' Neon inks. Then I die cut the panel using the Large Stitched Rectangle die. I die cut a second panel from a piece of Black card stock and adhered them both to a top folding White card base. 


I stamped the sentiment from the same set onto a piece of Black card stock and heat embossed it in White. Then I adhered it with some Foam tape. I added a few Candy Corn and Mermaid fun gumdrops. 

My second card using the adorable new set Cute Gnomies and the coordinating dies. Gnomes are like Unicorns.. you can never have enough sets of these! 


I started by trimming a piece of White card stock down to 3 3/4 by 5 1/2 then I die cut one of the Peek a Boo windows from the panel. I set that piece aside while I stamped the Gnome image onto some White card stock and colored it in with Copics and die cut it using the coordinating dies. Then I die cut the Banner from the new Garden Word Critters set and stamped the sentiment. I adhered the banner behind the Gnome image and adhered them to the front of the window. 


I added some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink to a piece of watercolor paper and then I spritzed it with water and dabbed it off with a paper towel after it dried I adhered it behind the window opening. I created a top folding White Card base and stamped the new Striptastic Diagonal stamp along the edge with some Black ink. I adhered the image panel to the card front with some Foam tape. For an extra pop of color I added some of the Blue Gumdrops from the Love Earth set

Hop along with the DT leaving a comments along the way for a chance to win a $25 GC to the YNS store. A winner will be announced on the YNS blog on May 4th. 

And be sure to head to the store and grab your New Release products! 


Let's get Hopping!!
