Give 'em something to squawk about


Hi Everyone, and welcome to the Your Next Stamp January Release Blog Hop!!   Hopefully, you've arrived from the amazing Lisette's blog - if not and you'd like to participate today, the hop starts at Thanh's Blog.  

We are so excited about our hop today because this release is HUGE!!   The entire DT had a blast playing with all of the new cuteness and we know you will too!!  We have a brand new illustrator - Angie Blom and we think you are going to SMILE when you see her new Insta Love stamp set.  :)  T

Would you like to win one of THREE New Release Prize Packages hidden within the hop?  Here is what you need to do - visit all of the YNS Designer's blogs that are participating in today's hop and comment on their creations as you go for your chance to win!

The Blog Hop starts today and runs though midnight, January 27th.  Prize Package winners will be announced on the YNS Blog on January 28th.

Are you ready for some YNS cuteness ?!?!


I'm crazy excited about Your Next Stamps newest Insta-Love die.  Vintage instant camera's and photos are SO trendy right now and this die is in my opinion the BEST instant photo on the market!!  It's the correct dimensions and it fits so beautifully on an A2 card size.  Trust me....you need this!!  ;)  I created a fun little scene for my "photo" using the chicken from  our newest Smiley Critter Crew Set Two collection also being released today.  The sun was created using elements in last month's YNS Whatnot Season Die set as well as the YNS Flower Fun Spring Grass and Puffy Cloud dies.  My designer papers are from Sugar Hill's Farm House collection.  I used a chicken wire embossing plate to create the background and then used a Clear Spica pen in the indentations to bring the detail out more.  A few buttons and a frayed piece of canvas trim gives texture and country charm.  The sentiment is computer generated using free fonts...Lane Humouresque and Little Pot.

And as always, Karen is also offering some amazing Hop Specials!  All on-line orders will receive 20% off!!  Just use code YNSJAN2013 to take advantage of these great deals!!     

Tanya is your next stop on the hop...before you leave don't forget to leave me a comment for your chance to win!!

Hi Wendy, this is such an adorable card! I love the colors you have used to color this little up with. So so fun and I think your papers really rock it all the more. I don't have this die, but I am thinking I just might need to check it out. It looks like it cuts so perfectly and I have to admit that I am very addicted to the Poloraid photo trend myself. I love the chicken wire background along with the torn cloth and your buttons. Truly a very fun and make you smile kind of card. Hugs, Lisa G
