YNS Holiday Hop

DecHolidayHopBanner

Hello and welcome to a special Your Next Stamp Holiday Hop! We are sharing projects made with YNS Holiday Stamps and Dies to wish our fabulous YNS customers a very happy holiday season! You are sure to find lots of inspiration and some great gift ideas along the way! The hop begins on Laura's Blog, and if you've been hopping along, then you should have arrived from Peggy's blog.

You have from today until Saturday, December 21st at midnight (EST) to hop with us! If you leave a comment on all of the blogs along the hop, you could win a $25 YNS Gift Certificate!!! Karen will announce the winners on the YNS Blog on Sunday, December 22nd.

For my project today I made another Fun Journal spread:

Brandi1

The beautiful image is Brandi and the sentiment is from the Holly set. 

First I painted with white gesso, then stamped Brandi with black StazOn ink and colored her with a combo of Distress reinkers and InkTense Pencils.  The tree was cut out from a piece of Webster’s Pages patterned paper and glued into the book in 2 pieces.  I cut the Insta Love Polaroid die cut out of matching paper, and flipped the inside piece over and stamped the sentiment on the back.  I rubbed a blue pastel over the edges of the book and glued down the Merry Christmas strip from the same paper as the tree.  I added modeling paste with a polka dot stencil and a bit of bling from Prima.  Finally, I painted some chipboard letters with gold paint and glued them onto 1 side.  I just love how this spread came out and hope you like it too!

Karen is having the biggest Your Next Stamp sale of the year with up to 30% off your order! She needs to blow out some inventory to make room for new stamps and dies!
