Your Next Stamp September New Release Blog Hop!

YNS September 2013 Hop Badge

Hello and welcome to the September Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop!  We have some spooktacular new stamps and dies for you this month and they are available NOW at the YNS Store!  We would love for you to hop along with us for your chance to win one of these adorable new sets:

YNS September 2013 Hop Prize

The hop begins on Jen’s Blog, and if you’ve been hopping along, then you should have arrived from Laura’s blog.  You have until Tuesday, September 25th at 12am (EST) to leave comments on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win!  Karen will announce the winners on the YNS Blog Wednesday, September 26th.

And now, onto the show!

For my first 2 projects, I used the new scene sets: Autumn Scene and Halloween Scene.AutumnScene1


Both scenes were stamped right onto patterned paper and I added a little color with InkTense pencils for interest.  I wanted to make sure you don’t forget that these line images don’t have to just go on plain cardstock – patterned paper is a fun background!!

For my last project, I used the new Kup Topper stamp set (which I helped design – yay!!) not to top K-Cups as I first intended the set to be used, but to top a cupcake!


I used an older version of this Cupcake Shaped Box and digital Hello, Again papers to make the cupcake for my topper.  Here’s a closer look at just the topper:


I used the paper pad version of Hello, Again for the topper.  I cut out the base circle and the scalloped circle using the Kup Topper die set and then stamped with the Kup Topper stamp set in Amuse inks.  Finally, I cut the button with the same die set and glued it in the middle of the topper (it could be tied on if you prefer).

[For the after hop party, I’ll have another way to use the Kup Toppers sets that’s not on K-Cups so I hope to see you back then!]

As always, Karen is offering some amazing hop specials!  You will receive 15% off your entire order through September 27th!  Online code is YNSSEPT22NR
