YNS Blog Hop & Challenge #51

Hello everybody! Thanks for joining us for another fun and fabulous Your Next Stamp Blog Hop! YNS just released a whole bunch of new stamps so the DT (and our awesome guest designers!) have whipped up some eye candy using many of the new images. Plus, since it's also a challenge week, we've combined our current challenge of "paper piecing" with some of our Hop projects.

If you came here by way of Jen R.'s blog, then you're on the right track! If not, please go back and start at Kerri's blog because you won't want to miss a stop! This Hop starts on Wednesday, September 14th at 3:00AM (EST), and ends on Saturday, September 17th at midnight (EST).

And of course it just wouldn't be a YNS Hop without some specials and a prize, right?! Well, here's the awesome prize for one lucky winner - some of the brand new release stamps!

For the Specials part, Karen has some stamp bundles plus a free YNS stamp (of her choice) will be included for every $30 spent – so if you spend $30, you’ll get 1 free stamp, $60 you'll get 2 free stamps, etc… What an awesome deal!!

*****And now on to the show!*****

I had hoped to have more than 1 project to share with you today but I've been sick for a very loooong time now and it's been difficult to get too much done. I do hope the one project I made is to your liking though - it's a super fun spinner card using the new set Spooktacular:

You can see that I paper pieced the ghost and I even decorated the inside with the matching sentiment:

But that's not so impressive so I put together a little animated gif to give you an idea of how much fun this card is to play with!!


I hope you liked my project and thanks for hopping along with us! Your next stop is the incredibly talented and super awesome Carole.
