Your Next Stamp: New Release Blog Hop!

Hello inky friends!

There's a brand new release happening over at Your Next Stamp and,  to celebrate,  YNS are having a January New Release Blog Hop. There's lots of inspiration from the design team and there's the chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate, simply by making comments.  Remember, the more comments you leave, the better the chance of winning!







I used the latest sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches for the card above. It features a couple of sweet birds from the brand new Love Birds set which I coloured with Copics. For the striped borders on the left I used the Thick Stripe-tastic Diagonal Edge.  I'm loving this border - it's big and bold but for a more subtle look you can do what I've done and white emboss it on to white card stock. The splashes of ink behind the birds are from Cool Backgrounds,  released in December.






To celebrate the new release there's also a special discount on all new purchases made between January 7th from 10pm and January 11th at midnight - by using the online code Jan2017 when placing your order,  you can get 20% off your entire purchase!
Next on the hop is Sue so pop on over, get inspired and leave a comment for the chance of winning that gift certificate!

Thanks for calling by,
Claire x
