Your Next Stamp October Release Hop


Welcome to the Your Next Stamp October Release Hop!

I’m so happy that you’re here! Karen has been working so hard on the new website and the team has been creating up a storm all for this BIG day.

We’ve got an all star line up of special guests that are joining us today and so much goodness to show you! The focus of this release is winter and Christmas and I’m seeing so many possibilities with the images and dies!

Make sure you comment on everyone’s blog for the most chances to win a prize! You can see the entire linky list below. There will be five prizes of $20 gift cards so you have a great chance of being one of our lucky winners. You have until October 21 11:59 EST to comment to enter so plenty of time to get hopping.

Here are my cards that I’m showcasing today:

YNS October 2014 Darling Deer 1 YNS October 2014 Darling Deer 2

For my first card, I used Darling Deer and the tree die from Christmas Tree and Wreath die and plenty of gumdrops to embellish the tree!

YNS October 2014 Waddles Bday 1

For my second card, I used birthday Waddles from Waddles Snow Fun, sentiment from Whatnot Sentiments Three and plenty more gumdrops. I owe a birthday card to a dear friend and when I saw this little guy, I knew he was perfect. I also used sketch challenge No. 158 of the week at Freshly Made Sketches for this layout:

Karen always offers up special sales and this sale is no less than fabulous!


Here’s the visual of all the images and dies I used:
