September Guest Designer and a New Design Team Member!

Hey everyone!  I am thrilled that I have the pleasure of introducing this month’s guest designer along with a new addition to the YNS team!

First up please help me give a warm welcome to this month’s guest designer, Tonya!

Hello. My name is Tonya Hopkins. I am a 39 year old college student, Mom to 2 beautiful girls & the wife to my high school sweetheart. We reside on the coast of North Carolina.
I have been crafting in one form or another for over 18 years, with decorative painting at the forefront. Several years ago, a friend introduced me to stamping, but I did not get serious about it until October of 2008. In October 2008, I stumbled upon a stamping forum and it really peaked my interest. As they say, the rest is history. Stamping is now my passion. Cards are my favorite to create, but I also enjoy making 3D projects and recycling things as well.
I am honored and excited to be a guest designer for YNS!

Isn’t her card using Rosa from Mexico just adorable?!

And last, but certainly not least I am thrilled to announce that Tracy Valure has agreed to join the Your Next Stamp design team!  I’m sure you all remember her, she was one of our amazing guests last month!

Here is her fabulous card using Geek but Unique!  This is one of my favorite YNS stamps, I just love those big glasses!

We are thrilled to have you with us and can not wait to see all of your amazing creations!

I love the world of paper crafting and I’m looking forward to sharing my work with you!

Football Fun

Just sharing a super fun football card Jodi, our November guest, created using the YNS stamp Football Dude. I love this stamp because not only is it super cool and on sale for a crazy good deal but it can be colored any team color to match the recipients favorite team!!!
When Jodi shared this card with me I emailed her and said it’s PERFECT! How did you know my husbands favorite team is Miami (green, orange and white)? She emailed me back and said “those are actual football team colors?! I just colored it to match the designer paper” LOL she had no idea she had designed the perfect Miami Dolphins football card! She totally cracks me up!
I’d like to send a special thank you to Jodi for joining us for the month of November! We hope to have you join us again sometime soon!
Also just a reminder about out current YNS challenge…Die Cuts! We would love  to have more YNS fans joining in all the challenge fun! You can check out all the details HERE.
