Time for the Your Next Stamp release blog hop!

Hello and welcome to our May Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop! We have several new stamp sets as well as several new dies! If you love fun and whimsical, you are going to LOVE this new release! You can find all of the new goodies HERE at the Your Next Stamp Store.
The hop begins on Laura's blog and if you've been hopping along, you should have come from Kerri's blog. Make sure you hop around to all of the blogs featured in the link list located at the bottom of this post for lots of inspiration using the new products! If you leave a comment on all of the blogs, you will be entered to win a $20.00 YNS gift certificate. The lucky winner will be announced on the Your Next Stamp Blog June 2nd.
And now for my projects.  First up, I got a little inky with my Distress Stains and the new Flourishes clear set.  I stamped a bunch of the flourish images onto some glossy cardstock and heat embossed in clear powder.  Then I used my Distress stains to wet the paper randomly (using two tones of red/pink) and wiped off when dry.  I wanted the background to be the focal point of my card so I just added a few embellishments (well a lot LOL!) and a tag for my sentiment.


Supplies:
Stamps: Flourishes set from Your Next Stamp, Overdue Library Card set (sentiment) from Your Next Stamp
YNS Dies: Stitched Fishtail Tags One Die Set, Tag Charms set
Ink: Ranger Distress Stains, Palette Noir, Versamark ink
Papers: Ranger Glossy Cardstock, Georgia Pacific cardstock, DCWV cardstock base
Accessories: Prima flowers, Prima Pearls, clear embossing powder, Offray ribbon, lace


Next up is a birthday card I created using the new Birthday Animals set.  The set comes with a whole bunch of cute sentiments that fit exactly in the little sign they are holding.

Supplies:
Stamps: Birthday Animals from Your Next Stamp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: Cosmo Cricket, Neenah cardstock
Accessories: Copic Markers, YNS Insta-Love Die, The Twinery Twine, wood button
