Your Next Stamp - May Release and Blog Hop

Good evening everyone!  I'm so happy you joined us for the Your Next Stamp May 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 Word Critters Collection - Gardening Birds.  I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it!  The birdies and other images are so cute and I love the sentiments too.  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die to cut my white cardstock and then I used the Peek A Boo Window Die to cut the opening.  I sponged some green and blue inks on my card base inside the window opening.  I colored all the images with copics and cut them out using the coordinating dies.  I used Glossy Accents on the water in the birdbath and then I added a few sparkly Magical Pastel and Hey Baby gumdrops to finish my card.    





My second card features the Little Notes stamp set.  I love this set too!  I absolutely adore the sentiments and you can make some quick and easy cards to send to all those special friends to let me know you're thinking of them!  I used the Stitched Rectangle Die to cut the plaid pattern.  I stamped the notebook paper on Neenah cardstock and used the coordinating dies to cut everything out.  I added some Magical Pastel and Ocean Mist glittered gumdrops.  I even finished the inside of the card with a scrap of the plaid paper and the cute little sun that's included in this stamp set!
 



Karen is offering 20% off your entire purchase from May 1st through May 5th!  Be sure to stop back by the YNS Blog on May 4th 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.  The hop ends May 3rd at 12 midnight EST. 

Hugs, Anita
