YNS Blog Hop and Exciting News for Your Next Stamp


Hello everyone. Thank you for your visiting. Welcome to the YNS BLOG HOP today. If you are hopping here from the lovely and talented Kerri's blog, you are in the right track, otherwise, please go back to Dana's blog to start this hop. First of all, I am so honored to be the Guest Designer for the month of May for Your Next Stamp. It is a very familiar to me as it was the very first Design Team I belonged when I first started to blog. Not only it's a special day for me to join in for this month on their blog hope, but also it is a very special day at Your Next Stamp.

We are so excited to announce that YNS is the newest Splitcoaststampers Member Company!!! Woohoo!!!

To celebrate, we have put together a special blog hop filled with all of our favorite things from Your Next Stamp.
We have 3 hidden prizes along the way, so make sure you comment on all of the DT blogs for your chance to win!
Here’s the hop list:
Cabio – guest

The hop will run from today, May 1st at 8:00 am (EST) until Sunday, May 6th at midnight (EST). Winners will be announced Monday, May 7th on the Your Next Stamp Blog and the YNS Splitcoaststampers forum.

Ok, here are the projects I have to share with you on this blog hop! I've prepared a card and altered a mini box with these cute YNS stamps. The stamp I used for the card is Miyuki From Japan. On this card, I colored her using Copics and shaded it after with Prismacolor Pencils. The other project is an altered mini box. I think Kichiro From Japan is a great combo with Miyuki, so I picked Kichiro to use for this altered box. Please scroll down for additional pictures on these project.


Karen (YNS owner) is also in the process of moving, so she is having a MOVING SALE. Quantities are limited, so shop early to grab the stamps and dies you want at a fantastic deal!
There is also a Retired Stamp Bin (70% OFF!!!) and a Bargain Bin, so make sure you check out all of the awesome deals at the Your Next Stamp Store!
Now it’s time to hop on over to (enter name) amazing blog! Thank you for celebrating with us and happy hopping!
