FINALLY! It's time for Your Next Stamp's first blog hop!

Come and join the YNS Blog Hop!

You should be arriving here from Maureen's blog, if you aren't, make sure you start at Karen's blog! There will be lots of candy given away during this hop so take the time to comment on EVERY BLOG! Anyway, I am so excited for today because I get to show you three of the new releases from Your Next Stamp! The artists have really outdone themselves with these new images and I think you will agree once you see them!

First up: Skating Fun! Fhiona
Oh my word! Isn't she adorable??? I fell in love with this image as soon as I saw it! To start off my card I stamped Fhiona and colored her in with my Copics. I paired her up with some fabulous paper and ribbon to create a very non-traditional Christmas card! I think it's pretty cute myself! :) I also used some fun baubles to embellish up my card!

Next on the list: Snowman
Ack! This little guy is definitely one of the cutest snowman stamps I have ever seen! He's the perfect size AND he's cheap! :) For this card I decided to use Mercy's Tuesday Sketch as my layout. I paired up my image with some old SU! paper and colored my snowman in with more of my Copic markers! I then added some ribbon and snowflakes! After punching out and attaching my snowflakes I also added some fun pearls to the centers!

Last but not least: Scarecrow
Isn't he so fun? This little guy is PERFECT for Thanksgiving! Again I colored him in with my Copic markers and paired him up with some fabulous designer paper. I put the card together and then embellished it with some ribbon, pearls, and a button/flower combination! This is also a sketch from the new blog called Crazy 4 Challenges!
