{YNS} Holiday Lights Release Hop

Hi there! Your Next Stamp has some very exciting news that we are so happy to share with you....YNS is branching out into the wonderful world of dies!


Today we are showing you a really cute new set, Holiday Lights, as well as the matching die!

A bit about this great little die:
YNS Dies are made in the USA of quality steel and are designed to work in all major die cutting machines. These dies cut through all sorts of different materials - paper, acetate, cork, felt and much more!
Karen also has directions posted on the YNS blog on how to use this die.

And here is a complete list of all the participants in today's hop:








Here is my card, using the new die and the stamp set Holiday Lights. This card took hardly any time to make, but with the addition of such an intricate looking string of lights, it really packs a punch! People will think that you slaved over their card with tiny little scissors for hours, and all it took was seconds going through your die cutting machine to achieve these amazing results!


Here is a closer look at the string of lights....don't mind the colouring! I was using a peice of scrap and it obviously wasn't my good copic paper! lol! The colours are kind of just sitting on the paper and didn't even seep through to the other side! Strange! I added a little spica clear glitter pen to the silver parts on both the light string and the sentiment lights.

 
And here is a side view. I added 1/2 dimensionals to each light to give them more 'pop'.


Okay folks, that's it for me! Hope you enjoyed my fun (and easy) Christmas card, featuring the new YNS stamp/ die set!
But wait.....no good hop would be compete without a prize! All you have to do is comment on all of the hop posts today and one lucky person will win this stamp set and die! Whoot Whoot! So get hopping and don't forget to leave some lovely comments on the way:)

Great card. I love how the stamps and die go together so well. I have a love/hate relationship with cutting out stamps - love the look but hate to do it! Great way to get an awesome accessory without much work.

Totally darling die & stamp set, Jenny! I love the way you've used it as a border :) The coloring looks great to me, but that is weird it didn't seep through! And, on the darling vintage card below, you ARE generous to let them write in there **GASP** they did a good job, too ;) Better than my boys' handwriting fo' sho! Have a great weekend! :) **hugs**
