YNS February New Release Hop

Feb 19 Hop Badge
 
Hello!  Welcome to the Your Next Stamp February New Release Blog Hop!  We have some really fun stamps and dies for you this month including some stamp sets with coordinating dies!
 
The hop begins on Kerri's Blog and if you've been hopping along, you should have arrived from Jenee's blog.  The hop will run from today until February 21st at midnight. 
Make sure you leave comments on all of the blogs along the hop for your chance to win a $15.00 YNS Gift Certificate!
And now for my cards.  For the first one, I took inspiration from Laura Bassen, who I believe is the Queen of plaid stamping!
 
StripesAndStitching2
 
I used one of the new stamps from the Stripes and Stitching set with a rainbow of Amuse Studio inks.  I added a sentiment from Dance Fhiona on a banner cut using the Fishtail/Banner die set.  Up next, more Stripes and Stitching fun:

For this card, I used 4 different stamps from the set, each using a different ink color (all from Stampin’ Up!).  I added a to go cup and lid as well as a sentiment from the Thanks a Latte stamp set and matching die set.
 
Karen also has a ton of specials going on in the Your Next Stamp Store!  Most stamps and dies are marked 20% off so take advantage of these great deals!

Now it's time to hop on over to Peggy's blog, but don't forget to leave a comment before you go!  Happy hopping and shopping!
