YNS May New Release Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to our May Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop! We have several new stamps sets as well as several new dies! If you love fun and whimsical, you are going to LOVE this new release! You can find all of the new goodies HERE at the Your Next Stamp Store.

The hop begins on Laura's blog and if you've been hopping along, you should have come from there. Make sure you hop around to all of the blogs featured in the link list located at the bottom of this post for lots of inspiration using the new products! If you leave a comment on all of the blogs, you will be entered to win a $20.00 YNS gift certificate. The lucky winner will be announced on the Your Next Stamp Blog May 31st.

And now for my projects – I have 3 for you today, one that has a video!

First up, is a pop-up box card.  I’ve seen these all over the internet and my fellow YNS DT member, Wendy, has made some awesome ones and inspired me to give it a try!  Here’s my first go at one:


I got some help from this post and used the ideas to make my own cut file in Make-The-Cut.  It was easier than I thought it would be!  For the animals, I used the Quirky Animals Set Two - stamping, coloring, and fussy cutting out each one.  I then used sentiments from Smiley Happy Critter Crew Set Four (from all of us), Birthday Animals (Let’s Celebrate and SURPRISE!) and Silly Monsters (Happy Birthday!).

Next up is a vellum box made with the new Gift Card Pillow Box dies and Flourishes stamp set.  I cut the box from vellum and stamped and embossed one image from Flourishes all over the box.  Then I cut a tag from Stitched Fishtail Tags One, stamped an embossed with another image from Flourishes and a sentiment from Silly Thank You Message (cut in half so they would stack).


Finally, I have another pillow box project.  This one has a puzzle inside for your recipient to piece together – fun! 


I used the Gift Card Pillow Box Die Set, the Puzzle Die and Smiley Happy Critter Crew Set Four.   Here’s the video where I show the project start to finish:
