Your Next Stamp 'Fall into Halloween' Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Your Next Stamp 'Fall into Halloween' BLOG HOP! I'm sure you've guessed from the title that we're showcasing some fabulous new YNS Fall and Halloween stamps today! These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Your Next Stamp store along with all your YNS favourites.


Not only do we have a fantastic blog hop for you, but today is also the official start of the new YNS DT term! Today is also a YNS Challenge day too, so we've combining our hop creations with our YNS Challenge #24 creations! [YNSC24 will run for 2 weeks as per usual (September 1-14) and although the DT have used Fall and Halloween stamps, the theme for this challenge is 'Anything Goes'.]


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


The hop starts today (Wednesday September 1st at 03:00 EST) and ends on Monday September 6th at midnight EST.


As always, here at Your Next Stamp, we have some wonderful prizes for you to win! Two lucky winners will be drawn at random to each receive a new release stamp package, but please make sure you comment at every stop along the hop to be eligible to be entered into the draw. We'd love you to join us over at our new Paper Craft Planet (PCP) Group, and so as an added incentive, anyone that becomes a member of our YNS PCP Group will automatically receive a second entry into the blog hop grand prize draw! How great is that? (It's free and easy to join PCP by the way!)


Not only is Karen offering two amazing prizes, she's also going to include a free surprise gift with every order placed at http://www.yournextstamp.com during the hop! And that's not all ... if you join our YNS Group over at PCP, you'll also be personally emailed an exclusive PCP-YNS-Group-only YNS store discount code!


So onto my blog hop creation! I have used Fall Fun Flower stamp ...



Isn't this the sweetest Sunflower image? What says fall like Sunflowers!! And sunflowers are one of my favorite flowers. My fiance gets them for me all the time, and one place here dyes them so they are fire red and they are so pretty!

My bonus project for you today is using Acorn Fall Fun stamp ...


Isn't this squirrel so fun?! My daughter is NUTS for squirrels, you should see her room. She LOVES them! She went 'nuts' when I got this stamp. Shes gonna make a card too!! I cant wait to share it with you. I paired this card with a sentiment from Fall Fun Flower.


So now it's time for you to hop on over to the super sweet Heather's blog as she is the next stop on our hop, but don't forget to leave me a comment before you go!


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