YNS 5th Birthday Blog Hop!



Hello Your Next Stamp friends! We’re turning FIVE this month and we’re having a big party to celebrate! We’re so happy to have you here to enjoy the festivities with us! Not only is it a birthday party for us, we want to celebrate you – the customers – as well. Thank you so much for all your support the past five years!

The rubber stamp and digital teams have worked so hard to complete some awesome projects for this combined hop! We have a fantastic line up of stamps and dies that are being released. There’s sure to be something for everyone - from adding to our Silly Monster family, to the nostalgic 60s, to savoring the sweet tastes of summer with mason jars. There’s a perfect assortment of images and dies. You can find all of the new goodies HERE at the Your Next Stamp Store.

The hop begins on Bonnie’s blog and if you've been hopping along, you should have come from Laura's blog. 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!

BIG BIRTHDAY PARTY PRIZE ALERT!!! Make sure to leave a comment on all of the blogs and collect the balloon letters. Once you unscramble the balloon letters, email Karen @ yournextstamp[dot]com and you will be entered to win a $20.00 YNS gift certificate.

There are FIVE prizes of a $20 gift certificate up for grabs so make sure you email Karen!

The lucky winners will be announced on the Your Next Stamp Blog August 10th.


And now for my projects ....


For this card, I used the Scripty Word Die Set and a bunch of sparkly gumdrops.  I cut the dies with masking paper and stuck them down to a piece of white cardstock.  Then I sponged a couple different distress inks over them and lifted them off to reveal the white words.


For this card, I used the Mason Jars set, with its included sentiment.  I made a shaker card and filled it with some sequins.  The sentiment was stamped on the smaller of the 3D Banner dies and the topper was colored with Copics and fussy cut out.

Don’t want to wait to go shopping? Here are our big birthday specials:


BONUS: You may receive a FREE Special Birthday Stamp set with all purchases over $40 (before shipping and taxes) but you MUST add the stamp set into your shopping cart before checking out. You’ll be able to add it from the YNS Deals of the Week page. Here’s the special set:


Thank you so much for stopping by today and hopping along with us!

Now it's time to head on over to Julie's blog, but before you go, don't forget to leave a comment and collect your balloon letter.  Happy hopping!

YNS Sneaky Peeky

Hi all! I'm sorry - life got in the way and I don't have a sneak peek project for you today. But I do have something I think is even better - a DT haul video so you can get a closer look at everything I got in my DT package this month! Here it is:

Please go check out the YNS Blog to see all the designers that are sharing peeks today and I hope you'll be back for our 5th Anniversary Blog Hop tomorrow!
