Your Next Stamp - DT Dare (Love & Coffee)

It's again time for the January Your Next Stamp Design Team Dare Challenge. Each month the design team is given a special challenge to help show off the new release stamps and dies.

This month our YNS DT Dare challenge is to use only 3 Colours (we were allowed to add neutral, in case you decided to count my colours).

Did you know YNS has paper. The newest paper pad Hugs and Kiss was absolutely perfect for this challenge. The main colours in the pad include pink, yellow and teal. I added white and kraft as my neutral to finish this simple card. The Love and Coffee stamp set is so versatile and great for paper piecing.

Head over to the Your Next Stamp blog and look for the January DT Dare post. Leave a comment on that post for the chance to WIN a stamp set of your choice!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Your Next Stamp January New Release Hop

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp January release hop. This release is filled with fun and fabulous stamps, dies and a beautiful new pad of paper. For anyone that knows me, you will know that my favourite things are Coffee and books. This month's release has both! I am a happy girl!!!!!

We have an amazing blog hop to showcase so many wonderful stamps, and dies! This month we have a number of talented guest joining us for our January release hop, so sit back, grab a beverage (Cinnamon Apple tea perhaps) and maybe a pen and paper to joint down an item or two or three for your wish list. 

Our Silly Monsters are back for this release and you are going to love this darling bookish set. My first project features the SILLY BOOK MONSTERS stamp and die. What is a crafty booking lovin' girl going to make when she has a book monster stamp? A new bookmark of course. This little monster is enjoying a new release for sure! 

It's still early, but this book monster may well become my favourite stamp of 2017.

I have a bookish theme for my projects today. My second project is a card featuring the darling GET YOUR FICTION ON. I just love this bookworm. This could be favourite stamp number two!!

In celebration of this new release, Karen is offering a wonderful deal!

Thank you for joining us for our new release hop! I hope you found a little inspiration and maybe a few stamps or dies that you'd like to add to your YNS collection. As you are hoping along, we would love for you to leave a comment. There will be a $25 YNS gift certificates available to win, so the more blogs you visit, the greater your chances to win the prize!

Remember to also come back to the YNS blog on January 11th to check out the next Design Team Dare challenge.

Have a great day and happy hopping!

Your Next Stamp January Previews (Love & Coffee)

Happy New Year Crafty Friends!

Do you know what time it is?

It's nearly time for the January release at Your Next Stamp!

With the new release just around the corner, I have the pleasure of sharing a little preview of some stamps and dies that you will see in this amazing and special release. I love preview day. All of the stamps and dies will be available really soon, so you may want to check out the previews today and start making your wish list!

If you head over to the Your Next Stamp blog you will see all of the previews available today!

Moving into 2017 I have a busy schedule. My goal is organization and clean and simple projects (as often as possible). Don't get me wrong, I love my layers, but as a very indecisive person, layers means so many choices that I tend to think way too long about.

For my preview card, I used the darling Love and Coffee stamp and die set, along with the amazing new YNS Hugs and Kisses paper pad. I can tell you, I LOVE this paper pad. It has everything I look for in paper, dots, stripes, small repeating images and beautiful colours!

I hope you enjoy the previews for the Your Next Stamp January release. Remember to check out all of the previews from the design team. The complete list of previews is available on the YNS blog.

Stop back later tonight (10:00 pm EST) for the start of the January release blog hop. There will be a lot of amazing projects to see and a great prize to be one. You don't want to miss this amazing release. On January 11th there will be another chance for inspiration and a prize with the next DT dare challenge. You don't want to miss all of these chance to see the January release in action.

Happy Peeking everyone!
