YNS World Kids CHA New Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp CHA Release BLOG HOP!

We are so excited here at YNS because Karen has taken YNS to CHA for the very first time! That's right, as you're reading this Karen will be at Winter 2011 CHA at booth #4518! WOO-HOO!!

So to celebrate this event, YNS is releasing some fab new YNS stamps just in time for CHA. You may have already caught a sneak peek of some of them last week over at the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog, but today you get to see all 9 World Kids stamps plus a fabulous new Celebrate Collection from HR Designs and 7 new mini stamps.

These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Your Next Stamp store along with all your YNS favourites.

Of course we couldn't let this release pass by without having a fun blog hop! We also have 4 fabulous guests joining us for our hop - the amazing Tori Wild, Cindy Haffner, Carole Burrage and Maylee Pham!

If you would like to participate in the hop and you didn't arrive here from Kerri'ss blog, please CLICK HERE to return to the start of the hop at Kerri's blog, as you don't want to miss these fab new releases!

The hop starts today (28 January 2011 at 08:00 EST) and ends on 2 February 2011 at midnight EST.

As always here at Your Next Stamp, we have a wonderful prize for you to win! One lucky winner will be drawn at random from the links in the linky list to receive their choice of 3 of the new World Kids stamps!

You will see that every stop along the hop has a linky list - this is the SAME linky list posted on every blog, so that you can enter the prize draw from any stop (although we hope you will visit all the blogs on today's hop!). The linky will update itself on everyone's blog when a link is entered - how cool is that? Please remember to only enter your name ONCE into the linky list during the hop - you do NOT need to enter your name at every stop and multiple entries will be removed. It's not a requirement for you to comment at every stop along the hop to be eligible to be entered into the prize draw, but the DT would sure love to hear what you think of their new release creations!

Karen is also running some special bundle promotions, so be sure to hop on over to the YNS store once you've finished the hop. If you order all 9 World Kids stamps in one bundle, you will save 15% over the cost of buying them individually!

So onto my blog hop creation! I have used  Boris from Russia for this card .....  


I found this great picture of St.Basil's Cathedral and  by filtering it on My Adobe Photoshop it looks more like a painting. Don't you love the cute Matryoshkas? When I was a child I always wanted a set of these, I loved they way you'd find another in another and so on. The sentiment says Live To Inspire because cultures and traditions are very inspirational.

I decided to created a dimensional creation for my next project using the Heather Rollins designed   Fancy Cupcakes:


I forgot all about this fun template for a basket until I saw these sweet cupcakes that is! I stamped the cupcake on craft as well as two pieces of scrap dp for the paper piecing. I added a bit of glitter and white accent paint for that extra boost.  My daughter is going to a Birthday party next weekend so we'll slip the gift card in here and there you go.

Here is a complete blog hop list in hopping order:

Cindy Haffner {Guest DT}
Maylee Pham {Guest DT}
Tori Wild {Guest DT}
Carole Burrage {Guest DT}

So now it's time for you to hop on over to Chris Olsen's blog as she is the next stop on our hop, but I'd love it if you left me a comment before you go!

Thanks so much for hopping with us today! I hope you enjoy our new release!
