Your Next Stamp April 2017 New Release Blog Hop!

Hey, folks!

Welcome to my stop on the Your Next Stamp blog hop for the April release!



For today's hop, we're all sharing more projects from the new release that's in their store now!  There's a $25 gift certificate up for grabs for people who are hopping along, so be sure to check out the other crafters' blogs!

Here's what I made to share with you using the ADORABLE new Scratch Pad stamp set [I squealed over this set!!], as well as the super-fun Aquarium Antics stamp set, which I used in my earlier post from today...



Humble totally inspired this card, and I tried to colour the kitty to look kind of like him!  His left hind leg looks different from this kitty's, though. :o)  I coloured the images with coloured pencils and die-cut them with the Scratch Pad die set and Aquarium Antics die set!

Here's a look at the super-cute stamp sets I used -- I just love these!! :D



Here's a video I made showing some of the April goodies!  I also recorded my 'brainstorming session' when I sketched out some project ideas, so hopefully you'll see an idea or two that you might like! :D



As always, Your Next Stamp is offering a GREAT discount to celebrate the new release.  You can use this discount on your entire order, including previously released items!



Here are the other crafters who are participating in the blog hop today!  The more blogs you comment on, the more chances you'll have of winning the $25 gift certificate, but you don't have to comment on all of them in order to be eligible to win.  You'll want to visit all of them, though, because they all have fun projects to share with you! :o)



Thanks for visiting me today!  I hope you got a smile here! :D
