Your Next Stamp - April New Release Blog Hop




Hello, hello!  Welcome to my stop on the Your Next Stamp New Release Blog Hop!!  I am so excited about this release, aren't you?  I just loved the HummingBird set that I shared yesterday, and the sweet Purrrfectly Cute set I'm sharing today just makes me happy! : )



I had so much fun coloring up this kitty and her basket of flowers!  I stamped her in VersaFine Black Ink since I was going to color with watercolor pencils and a blender pen.  I've been working on my clean and simple card making skills, so, after I got her colored, I used the Curved Scallop Edge Die to cut the top of the panel.  Then I stamped the greeting with Your Next Stamp Black Olive ink onto a strip of yellow cardstock and added that to an orange base along with some twine.  I scattered a few Gumdrops around the image for some extra color and texture.

Be sure that you hop around to all the blogs in the link list below to get lots of inspiration using the new sets and dies (that are all in the YNS Store right now, by the way!!).  And remember to leave comments as you hop to be in the running for a $25.00 gift certificate to the Store!  (By the way, the more blogs you visit and comment on the greater your odds of winning! But you don't have to comment on every blog to be in the drawing.)

Now off you go through the hop.  :)   And remember, as your wish list expands, that Karen is giving 20% off your entire order through April 6th.  Woohoo! I just love that!!


Thanks so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments.  They really make my day!!
