YNS Laughter Feature Day

Today on the YNS blog the design team is sharing creations to make you laugh and giving you a chance to win a stamp set of your choice!   Head on over to the YNS blog and leave a comment for a chance to win.

Get ready for an explosion!

This is an explosion box card that folds flat for mailing and then pops up to form a box.  

 The Butterfly box die set created the base for the box, then the rows of clouds were glued in and the characters were added on strips of acetate.

CAS Bunny Hop

This week the SCS CAS team is asking everyone to do the hop...the bunny hop!

I pulled out a PTI set that I bought last year but never got around to inking up.   

Supplies:   PTI Hippity Hoppity stamp and dies, Your Next Stamp Wild Flowers and Grass Border die, Your Next Stamp Circles with Stitching and Piercing Marks die set
Everything was stamped and die cut out of water color paper and then colored up with Zig Brush markers.  This one came together fast.

Get your week off to a CAS start and join in the fun!

Smiles,
Julie

Head on over to the YNS Blog right now for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice.   All you have to do is leave a comment on the YNS DT Dare post.   This month we were dared to create something around the theme Shades of Spring.

Your Next Stamp March Blog Hop



We are hopping in celebration of all the new stamps, dies, paper, and gumdrops available in the YNS store right now.   

My favorite set from this release is Stacked with Fun.   It is full of animals ready to perch on presents, but these animals can be used in so many different ways.


Up first, are a couple of the animals added to the new Little Ledges dies.


YNS Supplies:  Stacked Animals stamp and die sets, Little Ledges Die set, Enchanted Gumdrops

Next, the animals are topping the new Mini Popcorn Box.
YNS Supplies:  Stacked Animals stamp and die sets, Mini Popcorn Box die, Happy Spring Paper Pad
The animals were added directly to the top of the popcorn boxes.  Each animal is held in place by sandwiching the box between the colored animal and a solid animal die cut.



Now is the time to shop!  Take advantage of the discount code below on your entire purchase.


Be sure to leave a comment and then hop on to the next stop using the full list below.   The more blogs you visit and comment on, the greater the odds of winning a YNS Store gift certificate.

Floral Inspiration

If you are looking for a way to pass the time this weekend then join in Your Next Stamp's 58th challenge.   You may just win a YNS Store gift certificate!

There is a sketch and color combo to choose from.   I went with the sketch and a touch of water coloring.

This is an abstract take on the sketch, using stamps for each of the shapes.  Get creative, so long as we can see the basic elements you will be in the running for the YNS gift certificate.
