Hello, and welcome to the Your Next Stamp October Release and Website Launch Blog Hop!!! Phew... that's a mouthfull! :)
I don't know about you, but I've been looking forward to this day for a while!!
Not only do we have some awesome new stamps and dies to share with you this month, but Karen has been busy working behind the scenes to bring us a new and improved Your Next Stamp web store!!! EEEEK! It is so fresh and fun, and you are going to LOVE it!!!
    
This release is crammed full of holiday goodness... if you weren't prepared for your holiday card making needs, don't worry! YNS has you covered!
    
I gave you a sneak peek of the new Waddles - Snow Fun set last week, and I have another cute card to share today! I love the versatility of this set... it is perfect for Christmas projects, but this little guy with the present can be used for any occasion! My hubby's birthday is in December, so I'm thinking this card might work for him! :)

My next card is something out of the norm for me... NO COLORING!!!
Can you believe it?
Cards with a sentiment for the focal point always make me nervous... I usually feel like something is missing, but I LOVE how this one turned out! I found some purple glitter cardstock in my stash, and I thought the snowflakes from the new Winter Fun Tag Die Set would look so pretty cut from it! Of course, everything on my desk is covered in purple glitter now, but it was worth it! I topped each of the snowflakes with a Crystal Clear Gumdrop, and the beautiful sentiment is from the new Whatnot Sentiments Set Three. I stamped it onto vellum, and just wrapped it around the main panel on the card. I think I'm thinking I might make a bunch of these... wouldn't it make a nice thank you card??

Both of these cards are fabulous! Your coloring is wonderful on the first one and I really like the colors you chose to use on the card design. I also really like the detail you added with the twine in the button. A look I love, but have a difficult time achieving for my cards. Kudos! I adore the second card, too. Lots of fun glitter and sparkle. Definitely worth the desk/room/house full of glitter. The sentiment is wonderful. Excellent work! :)

So pretty. I really like the no colouring card as I also find them hard to do. And the purple snowflakes for sure.

EEK! Laura both cards are so fab! I love how you can use the first Waddles card for either a male or female. I'm all about gender neutral cards and the second is so beautiful with all that purple!
