YNS August 2017 Release Blog Hop


Hi there.  Welcome to the YNS August 2017 Release Blog Hop.  This month YNS celebrates 8 amazing years!  Happy birthday, YNS!!!  A huge milestone like this deserves a huge blog hop prize at a whopping $80!  Make sure you leave comments along the way for your chance to win.  You don’t have to comment on all the stops, but each comment gives you one entry.  And if you’ve been hopping, hope you are enjoying all the fabulous creations as well as counting up all the gumdrops for your chance to win 10 packages of gumdrops.  Full details can be found on the YNS blog.  All the new release products are available right now in the YNS Store and there is even a coupon code. And now onto my card.


YNS Supplies:
Magical and Magnificent stamp and die | Magical Unicorn | Stitched Rectangle |




I am featuring the super sweet Magical and Magnificent stamp set and die in a spinner card.  Since the image faces right and I needed an exact image facing left for the back side, I did some reverse image stamping with my MISTI and Mirror Blocks stamp.  They were stamped with Memento black ink on X-press It paper, coloured with Copics and then die cut out with the coordinating die.  It was a little tricky diecutting the reverse images.



The frame and window opening were created with the Stitched Rectangle die set.  The frame was die cut three times from Bristol paper to give it strength.  The sentiment was stamped in black on the frame.



The inside stripe background was created with Post It label tape, Salty Ocean distress ink and a mini blending tool to give it a carnival look.  A few blue gumdrops finished off the card.  And here it is in action.
