YNS April Release Blog Hop!!



It's time for the April Release Blog Hop from Your Next Stamp!! Leave comments along the way for a Chance to Win a $25 Gift Certificate to the store. You can find the complete list of blogs at the bottom of this post.... 


My first project features the new Smiley Happy Alphabet set and coordinating dies. I used a piece of the Fairytale Magic 6x6 Paper for my background and I die cut a start from some Yellow paper using the Strip-tastic Star Die set. I colored each letter in with Copic Markers and added some Sunset Sparkle Gumdrops for a pop of Glitter. 


My second project features my second Favorite set in this release...One in a Melon and the new Watermelon Party 6x6 Paper Pad. 


I die cut a piece of the Watermelon Party 6x6 paper with the Stitched Rectangle die set and adhered it to a Green card base. I added a vellum circle and some strips of coordinating papers for a sentiment banner. Then I stamped each of the images onto some Copic X-Press it blending cardstock and colored them in with Copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered them with some foam tape. I wanted an extra pop of color so I added some Strawberry Gumdrops (retired). I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the images for some sparkle. 


Are you ready to hop along for a chance to Win? Don't forget to stop by the store for a great sale as well...
