Welcome to the June 2015 New Release Blog Hop at Your Next Stamp!!!
We have LOTS of new goodies to share today... some super cute new stamp sets, and must-have dies that you will be reaching for again and again!!
I am so excited about all of the products I used today... with young kiddos, these stamp sets are going to gets lots of use in my house!
First up, I have a sweet new addition to Macy's Little Darlings collection, this is Belle. The original image includes an adorable clock and tea set in the background, but I've cropped it to fit a smaller card. I cut her out with the Circles Dies, and added stitching with the Stitching Marks Circle Dies. My patterned paper is cut using the new Stitched Squares Dies... I actually squealed when I saw these! I love all of my YNS stitched dies, and this is another set I can see myself using all the time!!
Not only do you get this sweet girl in the set, but you get everything you'll need to create customized party invitations!!
Up next, I've combined the new Kid's Party Invite with the Party Confetti background to create another cute invitation. I stamped the Party Confetti in three different colors of Memento Ink (Dandelion, Pear Tart, and Bahama Blue), and also stamped the sentiment in Bahama Blue Ink. I colored up one of the Silly Monsters, and created a little balloon bundle for him to hold with the Mini Balloon Trio Die.
Instead of a tradtional folded card, I created a little pocket card, and the invitation part just slides out...
Aren't these sets SO FUN?!
If you *need* these for your crafty collection, now is a great time to shop, because Karen has a very generous discount for you in the store...
AND... we also have a PRIZE up for grabs!!!

It's SNEAK PEEK time!!!
Tomorrow is the New Release Blog Hop at Your Next Stamp, but TODAY, we are giving you a little preview of all the goodies coming your way!!
I am sharing an adorable new set called Happy Meal... this one is so much fun!!!
It includes kid's meal favorites, lots of fun sentiments, and even some cute faces!! It also coordinates perfectly with the Fast Food Fun Sentiments (which is where my sentiment came from), AND the Fun Faces set, which I used instead of the faces that were included with Happy Meal. I cut each of my layers with the Stitched Rectangle Dies for a pretty quick and simple card!
How cute would it be to tuck a gift card inside for a fast food lover??

I've colored up the lovely Catherine for this week's challenge inspiration at Your Next Stamp. She is cut out with the Stitched Rectangles Dies, and I also used the *new* Stitched Strips Dies that we will be debuting this weekend with our New Release Blog Hop! The flames on the candles are covered in glitter from my Wink of Stella Pen, and you can actually kinda see it in the picture!!
I've used the color palette for my inspiration this week...
... but we also have this fabby sketch if you prefer...
... or you can combine the two for the ultimate challenge... it is up to you! But you only have one more week to play along, so get busy!! One very lucky winner will receive a YNS Gift Certificate!! Check out the YNS Blog for all the details, and more inspiration from the team!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Alrighty friends... it's time for a new challenge at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!
We have a great theme this time around...
That means you need to feature stitching of some sort somewhere on your challenge entry.
Stitched dies have been a growing trend for a while now, and it's one trend I LOVE! I also love the look of machine or hand stitching, but the ease of just running the paper through the die cutter and having a perfect little border... I'm all for it!!
I used a few different stitching dies on my card with Maurice Say Cheese... the camera print paper (from the Simple Stories Daily Grind 6x6) was cut out with my YNS Stitched Rectangle Dies. I added stitching to the orange layer with the YNS Tiny Stitches Stitched Line Die, and layered vellum under the Lil' Inker Designs Instant Camera Die - also stitched! :)
As for Maurice... he is colored with Copics, his shirt paper pieced to match the card, and a bit of Glossy Accents was added to his glasses.
