Your Next Stamp | August Release Blog Hop & Birthday Sale

Hello everyone and welcome to the Your Next Stamp (YNS) August release blog hop! So glad to be guesting this year again! A big thank you to Karen for having me in the line up! Your Next Stamp is turning 9 and there is a special sale to celebrate their birthday! YAY!




Make sure you hop around to all of the blogs featured in the link list at the bottom of this post. You will find lots of inspiration using the new products!


To celebrate this new release, I made a project using the Cupcake Day stamp set. Here is what I came up with: 




I made a top folded card base and used Distress inks and blending tools to create a fun background. I stamped the mouse with the stacked cupcakes in black ink, colored the image and cut it out with scissors. The sentiment is from the Cupcake Day set too. To finish off my card, I added enamel dots. It gives a colorful and happy touch to each project.

Here is the FABULOUS Cupcake Day set I used for my card:
