Welcome to our fabulous YNS Winter New Release Blog Hop! I’m excited to finally release all these super fun holiday stamps!!! We’ve got an amazing hop line up with some very talented guests so be sure to hop along to see all the incredible new images from our fabulous illustrators Fhiona, Franfou and Heather.
I’d like to thank my illustrators, my amazing DT and guests for all their hard work and amazing eye candy!!! A special thanks to Simonne for helping put together this awesome hop! She always keeps us organized and I so appreciate all her hard work. Big hugs to all!
I know the hop line up is fairly long so as a little incentive to keep hopping there are mini prizes along the way as well as a grand prize located at the end so why not start at the beginning…
Your first stop on the hop is the super talented Crystal!!! You will love what she has for you!!!
Hopefully you’ve been hopping along and ended up here via the amazing and talented Tori Wild.
If you came from Tori’s blog then you are on the right track and I’d like to say…
Congrats to making it to last hop stop! Grand Prize information is at the end of my post.
Here is my hop card…
I’ve stamped the super cute Skating Fun Fhiona (yes, she has returned to YNS now as a single stamp – YAY!) with Brilliance black ink onto Copic X-press it blending card and colored her in with Copics. The DP is from the Winter Song paper pack. I added some stickles to the ice and had so much fun adding all the glitter brads and red metal embellies to this super fun new nestie…and yes I used my new fav tool the Embellie Gellie!
Just in case you get lost along the way, here is our hop line up…

—- Welcome to YNS Sneak Peek Day 1!!! I’m so excited about all the amazing Holiday stamps that are being releases on October 7th!!! There are over 25 new images all from the amazing and talented Fhiona Galloway, Franfou and our newest Illustrator Heather!
Today’s peeks are dedicated to our new Illustrator Heather Rolin! I’m so excited to bring Heather’s amazing designs to Your Next Stamp! We’ve been working together on some new collections for YNS and this Thursday I finally get to release her first collection – YAY! The Happy Holidays Collection is absolutely amazing and I just love the versatility of these images!!!
For my sneak peek I stamped one of the Holiday Stockings from this collection and made it into a holiday gift tag. I love making my own gift tags and these stockings are perfect!!!
I stamped the image with Brilliance black ink onto the new Copic X-press it blending card and colored it in with Copics and then tied it onto the bag with divine twine. Just in case you are wondering…the To: and From: sentiments are from Dale’s Garden Greetings set.
Please be sure to visit the super talented Simonne, Wendy and Beth for more peeks at Heather’s new Holiday Collection!
I’ll be back tomorrow with another peek so until then…

— I think it’s so COOL that there’s a day dedicated to Card Making!!! I’ve been so busy with getting the new winter releases ready for our Oct 7th blog hop – YIPPEE along with preparing for ScrapFest Oshawa – another YIPPEE that I don’t actually have a card for you today but I do have a really simple gift bag that I made for my Mom. We are actually celebrating an early Thanksgiving this weekend and I thought my Mom would like a little gift bag filled with some yummy goodies. I just loved the card Maureen made with this Yummy Pie stamp set so I decided to use her layout and make it into a bag.
I hope you have a happy stamping world card making wonderful day!

It’s Friday! YAY! It’s also October already! Where did September go? It seemed to just fly by!
I’d like to give a warm welcome to our super amazing and talented guest designer – Tori Wild! I instantly fell in love with Tori’s creative style and couldn’t wait to see what she would create with YNS stamps! Thank so you much for joining us this month Tori!
Here is a wonderful her bio in her own words…
I’m a “work-from-home” mom who left the rush of the corporate world a year ago to start an in-home daycare. I love being home every day for my kids and as an added bonus, it gives me so much more stamping time! I look forward to my afternoon “recess” each day during nap-time. My “Wild” kids are Parker – 7, Kaiden – 5, and Gabrielle – 3 and I can’t forget my amazing husband, Jeremy — we just celebrated our 15 year wedding anniversary and are coming up on 20 years as a couple. He puts up with my chaos and supports me in everything! I love to stay busy and challenge my mind, so working with some of the most amazing stamp companies in the industry has been a huge honor and has led to so many amazing friendships. I’m excited to play along with the YNS team this month!
I can totally relate with her and wish my son would nap so I could have ‘recess’ too!

—- Happy Wednesday! It’s time for YNS Challenge #26! YIPPEE! Our hostess with the mostess is the super talented Wendy and she has challenged us to make our own flowers for our card/creation! How super FUN!
I’ve never attempted to make my own flower so this was a challenge for me but I’m always up for trying new things so I got to work and well…all I can say is ‘go BIG or go home!’ LOL My flower turned out a little bit, ok I mean, a lot bigger than planned…hmmm so I’ll add to Wendy’s challenge and if you can make a bigger flower than mine I’ll give you $5 in YNS bucks…how’s that for a fun challenge? Just be sure to comment below with a link to your blog so I can go and check out your HUGE flower. If you don’t have a blog just email me a photo of your creation. Also be sure to link your creation to the YNS Challenge #26.
Ok so here is my HUGE homemade flower creation…
(click photo to enlarge)
I stamped the lady from the You’re Fabulous set onto Copic X-press It paper and then paper pieced her skirt to match my flower and colored the rest in with Copics.
I hope you join the fun over at the challenge blog for your chance to win! Plus you can instantly win $5 in YNS bucks if you make a bigger flower than me! Have FUN!
Also I’d like to remind everyone that the Limited Edition sets will no longer be available after September 30th so grab the sets you want at this amazing price while you still can!
