YNS November Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp November Release Blog Hop!!  

The design team along with 2 guests have some fabulous new YNS Stamps to showcase today!  These new stamps (along with your other favorites) are available today to purchase from the Your Next Stamp store.

If you've arrive from BETH'S blog then you're on the right track.  If not, please CLICK HERE to go to the start of the hop.  

One lucky blog hopper (drawn at random) from the comments at Karen's Blog will win a new release stamp package.  You're not required to leave me a comment, but I would really appreciate it if you would....PLEASE...with sugar on top!!! :)

I also want to mention that Karen is holding a 20% off your order sale which starts today and is good through November 25, Midnight EST.  Be sure to enter the code YNSNOV when checking out to receive your discount. I'm excited to show you my blog hop creations!!

This is Ellie Building A Snowman and I just think she's super cute and was sooo much fun to color.   I love her earmuffs and that adorable smile on the snowman.  Since there was so much sparkle on the DP I decided to not go overboard on the image.  I've used Flowersoft (Polar White) for the snow and Star Dust Stickles as snowflakes.  And even a little Glossy Accents on the snowman's eyes and mouth to give it some shine.  The image panel and the sentiment are both popped up with foam tape for dimension.

This card is for the following Challenges:
Creative Cottage = #27 Someone Special at Christmas
Meljens Designs = #34 Sparkle & Shine
Lollipop Crafts = #16 Very Girlie
The Crafty Pad = #97 Christmas Sparkle
Sentimental Sundays' = #29 Childhood
ABC Challenge = H is for Holiday

Now with my next card I also had so much fun making.  This was one of those cards that almost put itself together.  (That doesn't happen for me very often so I REALLY enjoyed it)    

This image is So Sorry and I thought that made the PERFECT sentiment too!!  :)    Doesn't he look so pitiful?!?!  How can you be mad at him?!?!  This will be great for belated birthdays too!!  I popped the image panel up with foam tape for dimension.  And then I played around and did a dotted background; which I regreted almost immediately.  But after leaving it alone for a few hours and seeing it again I decided it wasn't so bad after all and that I kind of liked it.  I had so much fun playing with my new scalloped die and cork from My Favorite Things.  That cork is soo YUMMY!!! 

This card is for the following Challenges:
Cards for Men = #23 Animals

Well, that's all from me!  Now it's time for you to hop over to the next stop which is CHRIS' blog for more inspiration.

I had to smile at your regretful dots - have just done the same embossing a saying over a background! Love the carrot with the snowman & all the detail with the black gems & that ribbon with the snowflake echoes the pattern in the paper so well - perfect. As for the little donkey - I fell for this one - love the layering & those colours & his wide-eyed "what ME?" look.
Much love
