Your Next Stamp | November Release Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Your Next Stamp (YNS) November release blog hop! I’m so happy to join Karen and the Design Team to feature the new release. 

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 Happy Holly-Days stamp set. I’m so in love with the YNS wreaths. (Click HERE to see more YNS wreath stamps from past releases). Here is what I came up with:

I stamped the super sweet wreath with the adorable squirrels to kraft cardstock. I colored the image using color pencils. I also added color to the center of the wreath to give more depth and the impression of a window. I die cut the kraft panel using a stitched square die and adhered the piece of cardstock to the front of a bluish top-folded card base. To finish off my card, I added the banner with sentiment (also part of the Happy Holly-Days stamp set), a tiny red heart and I put some Glossy Accents to the berries for more dimension.

Here is the adorable Happy Holly-Days set I used for my card:

Your card is BEAUTIFUL! I love your colouring! I've never tried colouring on Kraft paper before, but you've inspired me to try it. I love these new stamps and your new release.

Love it, Francine. Saw it on IG and that's what brought me to your blog. YNS has really funny sets. The only set I own is the "Rein-Beer" for a my "Brewer" nephew and that's really cute. I may have to take another look at their cute stamps! Thanks!
Very cute card, I love it!
