Your Next Stamp - April Release and Blog Hop

Good evening everyone!  I'm so happy you joined us for the Your Next Stamp April release blog hop!  We have lots of fun stamps and dies for you this month and I know you're going to love them!  The entire release is available now in the YNS Store.

Make sure you hop around to all of the blogs featured in the link list located at the bottom of this post for inspiration using the new products!  Also remember to leave a comment on all of the blogs for a chance to win a YNS Gift Certificate! 





For my first card I used Gardening Phoebe.  Isn't she a cutie?  The Phoebe stamps are some of my favorite Your Next Stamp images and I was so happy to see Karen add this little sweetie to the shop! I sponged some distress inks onto some cardstock that I cut using the Stitched Rectangle Die.  I cut the grassy hills with the Spring/Summer Scene Die Set  I colored all the images with copics and then cut them out using the coordinating dies.  I popped everything up on foam dots for some dimension.  I added some white dots to the sunflowers and used a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen on the bee's wings.




My second card features the Spectacular Teacher stamp set.  With the end of the school year just around the corner, this set is perfect for making cards and appreciation gifts for both teachers and students.   I used the Stitched Rectangle Die to cut the crayon paper and the new Circles with Stitching and Piercing Marks to cut the white circle of cardstock.  I colored the images with copics and cut them out using the coordinating dies



Karen is offering 20% off your entire purchase from April 3rd through April 10th!  Be sure to stop back by the YNS Blog on April 6th for even more inspiration with the new release stamps and dies!








Thank you for hopping along with us!  Don't forget to leave a comment at each stop. 

Hugs, Anita
