World Kids New Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Your Next Stamp CHA Release BLOG HOP!

We are so excited here at YNS because Karen has taken YNS to CHA for the very first time! That's right, as you're reading this Karen will be at Winter 2011 CHA at booth #4518! WOO-HOO!!

So to celebrate this event, YNS is releasing some fab new YNS stamps just in time for CHA. You may have already caught a sneak peek of some of them last week over at the Scrapbook & Cards Today blog, but today you get to see all 9 World Kids stamps plus a fabulous new Celebrate Collection from HR Designs and 7 new mini stamps.

These new stamps are available to buy right now from the Your Next Stamp store along with all your YNS favorites.

Of course we couldn't let this release pass by without having a fun blog hop! We also have 4 fabulous guests joining us for our hop - the amazing Tori Wild, Cindy Haffner, Carole Burrage and Maylee Pham!

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

The hop starts today (28 January 2011 at 08:00 EST) and ends on 2 February 2011 at midnight EST.

As always here at Your Next Stamp, we have a wonderful prize for you to win! One lucky winner will be drawn at random from the links in the linky list to receive their choice of 3 of the new World Kids stamps!

You will see that every stop along the hop has a linky list - this is the SAME linky list posted on every blog, so that you can enter the prize draw from any stop (although we hope you will visit all the blogs on today's hop!). The linky will update itself on everyone's blog when a link is entered - how cool is that? Please remember to only enter your name ONCE into the linky list during the hop - you do NOT need to enter your name at every stop and multiple entries will be removed. It's not a requirement for you to comment at every stop along the hop to be eligible to be entered into the prize draw, but the DT would sure love to hear what you think of their new release creations!

Karen is also running some special bundle promotions, so be sure to hop on over to the YNS store once you've finished the hop. If you order all 9 World Kids stamps in one bundle, you will save 15% over the cost of buying them individually!

I decided to make an Around the World Thank You Set!! Many Thanks from Around the world!!! I couldn't decide what cutie to use so I decided to use the whole set. You can purchase any of these cuties HERE today!!! I also used the accessories to stamp on all my matching envelopes. Once I completed this project, I made a fun box to store them all in. Hope you enjoy my creations today!!!






PLEASE CLICK ON THE PHOTOS TO SEE A LARGER VERSION



Instead of making my post HUGE I decided to make a couple of collages of the completed project!! My first step to making this box of cards was to figure out a layout to use for each card, then I found papers and charms to work well with each Country. I also made all the tickets to say THANK YOU in their language. Then I stamped all the images in Momento Black Ink and colored with many Copic Colors. I cut all the images out and popped them all up!!!! To create my box, I used a plain brown box, covered it with Designer Paper, used paper to scallop the edges, made a tag, added ribbon and a charm :)

Hope you enjoyed my project today!!!

Here is a complete list of the hop in case you get lost along the way!!


So now it's time for you to hop on over to Jenny's blog as she is the next stop on our hop, but I'd love it if you left me a comment before you go!

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