Some exciting news for Your Next Stamp! And a little hop to celebrate.

Hello! Today is a very special day at Your Next Stamp. We are so excited to announce that YNS is the newest Splitcoaststampers Member Company!!! Woohoo!!! To celebrate, we have put together a special blog hop filled with all of our favorite things from Your Next Stamp! We have 3 hidden prizes along the way, so make sure you comment on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win (There is a full list of today's blog participants at the bottom of my post incase you get lost around the way).   If you arrived from Jen's blog, then you're right on track.

The hop will run from today, May 1st at 11:00 am (EST) until Sunday, May 6th at midnight (EST). Winners will be announced Monday, May 7th on the Your Next Stamp Blog and the YNS Splitcoaststampers forum.

Now onto my projects.  First up is a super quick and easy vintage inspired wedding card using the Fancy Frame stamp and die set.   The set comes with a bunch of fabulous sentiments making it easy to whip up cards for any occasion in a few minutes!


I heat embossed the frame with some WOW! Embossing Powder (Primary Bark) and then inked and popped out the sentiment panel with some dimensional adhesive. The embossing adds a nice shine and glimmer to an otherwise simple design.  The centers of the flowers were accented with some Viva Decor pearl paint.


For my next project, I started off creating a tag with one of my favourite recent releases (World Love set).    While colouring the globe image I was thinking along the lines of Earth Day and went with a kraft and rustic theme.  I stamped the people image in kraft ink onto my tag and coloured the hearts with a kraft toned marker.  I added some wood buttons and garden twine.

After completing my tag I stamped a coordinating kraft gift bag.  I simply took the globe image and stamped it repeatedly with kraft ink.  (My apologies for the differences in colour between the tag and bag images but they were both shot with different lighting conditions).


Karen (YNS owner) is also in the process of moving, so she is having a MOVING SALE! Quantities are limited, so shop early to grab the stamps and dies you want at a fantastic deal!
