Happy Birthday to Your Next Stamp!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!

Hello Your Next Stamp friends! We’re turning FIVE this month and we’re having a big party to celebrate! We’re so happy to have you here to enjoy the festivities with us! Not only is it a birthday party for us, we want to celebrate you – the customers – as well. Thank you so much for all your support the past five years!
The rubber stamp and digital teams have worked so hard to complete some awesome projects for this combined hop! We have a fantastic line up of stamps and dies that are being released. There’s sure to be something for everyone - from adding to our Silly Monster family, to the nostalgic 60s, to savouring the sweet tastes of summer with mason jars. There’s a perfect assortment of images and dies. You can find all of the new goodies HERE at the Your Next Stamp Store. 
The hop begins on Bonnie’s blog and if you've been hopping along, you should have come from Sharla'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 get lost along the way, there is a linky at the bottom of my post.
BIG BIRTHDAY PARTY PRIZE ALERT!!! Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs and collect the balloon letters. Once you unscramble the balloon letters, email Karen @ yournextstamp[dot]com and you will be entered to win a $20.00 YNS gift certificate.
There are FIVE prizes of a $20 gift certificate up for grabs so make sure you email Karen!
The lucky winners will be announced on the Your Next Stamp Blog August 10th.


I have two projects to share with you today.  First up is a card I created with the new  Spread the Love set. I stamped and coloured a bunch of strawberries in my jar and then created the jar wrap by stamping on some up-cycled tissue paper from Bath and Body works.  I cut one of the sentiments from the set in half to stamp on the tag die and blinged up the fruit with some glitter. 


Supplies:
Stamps: Spread the Love set from Your Next Stamp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: Neenah white cardstock, Georgia Pacific white cardstock, tissue paper
Accessories:  Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinder's die, YNS mini tag die, lace trim, Stickles, Maya Road twine, Copic Markers

Next I have a shaped card featuring the new Celebration Bear set. The image is a nice size so I used it as the focal point of the card.  I added a pop of colour with some patterned paper on the kraft and doily background.


Supplies:
Stamps: Celebration Bear set from Your Next Stamp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Papers: Neenah white cardstock, Georgia Pacific white cardstock, Jillibean Soup
Accessories:  Copic Markers, wood button, baker's twine, SRM sentiment sticker, doily, Stickles
