YNS April New Releases!


Hi everybody! I have a bunch of Your Next Stamp news to share with you, so I hope you'll settle in and stay with me for the whole post!

First up, we have a bunch of new releases for April! Please head over to the YNS blog to check out all the new release creations and enter the contest (but come back here if you'd like the details of my card)! Enter your name into the Linky there for a chance to win a YNS new release prize pack!

There's also a new release sale going on now - you can get 10% off your order until April 22 at midnight, just use the code YNSAPRIL10.

And speaking of sales... Karen has started something new over at the YNS Store: Weekly Specials! Every Sunday she’ll post a new stamp or stamp set in the weekly special section. This stamp or stamp set will be offered at a special price PLUS she's removed the shipping charges on this stamp or stamp set. The offer will be available all week or while quantities last and all the details are available on the YNS website. The special this week is the Good Morning Fhiona set (formerly known as Bad Hair Day Fhiona).

My final bit of news - you can now get Sampler Packs from YNS! There are sampler packs of paper, buttons, brads as well as a variety pack of gems! This is a great way to get more variety for less money! What a great new addition to the YNS store!!

Whew! Are you still with me? Great! How about I show you my new release card:

I used the pretty new Hummingbird Beauty set, a couple patterned papers from an SEI paper pad and FTL #136 from Clean & Simple Stamping.

I took a clean and simple approach with this delicate set, stamping the sentiment first in black, and then positioning the hummingbird and flower around the sentiment and stamping in Avocado ink. Here's a close shot of the sentiment panel:

I hope you like it and don't forget to swing by the YNS blog so you can drool over all the other fab new release creations! TFL!
