Your Next Stamp August DT Dare: Colour Me Happy (Party Pets)

I am excited to be joining in for this month's Your Next Stamp Design Team Dare Challenge for August.

Each month the design team is given a special challenge to help show off the new release stamps and dies. The challenge may be seasonal or technique bases, but whatever it may be, you will see a lot of fun projects.

This month our challenge theme is called COLOUR ME HAPPYThe team was left to interpret this how they wanted.

One of my favourite stamps for this month's release is the Party Pets. For me this challenge was all about showcasing the fun colours in the amazing Birthday Girl paper pad and the new Pretty Peacock Matte Gumdrops.

YNS Supplies Used: Party Pets, Circle Die, Stitched Circle Die, Stitched Rectangle die, Birthday Girl paper pad, Pretty Peacock Matte Gumdrops, Black Olive Ink   

Head over to the Your Next Stamp blog and look for the August 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 - August (BIRTHDAY) Release!

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to Your Next Stamp, happy birthday to you!!!!

This month is a great month for birthday celebrations! I celebrated my birthday earlier this week and now we are celebrating the 8th birthday for Your Next Stamp! It's also time to share the new August released stamps and dies, so there are a lot of reason to be happy and celebrating right now.

Today we have an amazing blog hop to showcase so many fabulous stamps, dies, gumdrops and paper! This month I am re-joining the YNS team as one of the guests for birthday hop celebration. I know, I haven't been away from the team too long, but I couldn't miss out on a great party! Sit back, grab a beverage; an iced caramel macchiato perhaps, and maybe a pen and paper to joint down an item or two or three for your wish list.

Here is a look at my birthday project featuring the Party Pets stamp! I am pretty sure I looked excited eating my birthday cake on Wednesday!

In celebration of this amazing birthday release, Karen is offer some wonderful deals!

Now a party, just wouldn't be a party without PRIZES and party GAMES!

This month there is an $80 YNS gift certificate up for grabs. Remember to comment on the blogs along this hop! The more blogs you visit and leave a comment for, the greater your chance is to WIN!

Party Game: This month there is a fun game and if you win you could end up with 10 packages of gumdrops! As you are hopping along our blog posts today, remember to count the gumdrops as you go! There will be a link at the end of this hop for you to enter your answer. I used a few of the new Nautical Matte gumdrops on my card above!

Thank you for joining us for our new release  BIRTHDAY hop! I hope you found a little inspiration and maybe a few stamps, dies, paper, ink.......that you'd like to add to your YNS collection. 

Remember to also come back to the YNS blog on August 9th to check out the next Design Team Dare challenge. I will have another guest card to share there.

Have a great day and happy hopping!
