YNS Challenge #51 & Blog Hop!

Hi, and welcome to the YNS (Your Next Stamp) Challenge #51 and Blog Hop to celebrate our September stamp release! You may have hopped here from my good buddy, Carole's blog. She's a tough act to follow, but I'll do my best here, but I'm not even going to attempt to match her wit, so let's talk about the challenge and the hop! The September Release stamps are all about Halloween and Fall (well, most of them!) and the challenge is to paper piece.


I decided to do some ghosty paper piecing using the uber cute ghost from Spooktacular! The ghost and sentiment are from the same stinkin' cute set, and I paper pieced Pink Paislee Phantom paper over my vellum ghosts, punching out the eyes with my Cropadile tool for added ghosty fun.


I have to say they look pretty spooky in real life...cute spooky that is!  I took some liberties with my fence die, cutting each of the posts apart to achieve that Halloween Night-spooky fence look. After piecing it just so, I added brads here and there, and then tied it up with linen thread.

Now the FUN part...blog hop details (and good ones they are!):
Blog Hop Starts: Wednesday, September 14th at 3:00AM (EST)
Blog Hop Ends:Saturday, September 17th at midnight
Prize: Selection of new release stamps (see picture below)
Store Promotion: Special stamp bundles plus a free YNS stamp (YNS choice) included for every $30 spent – spend $30 get 1 free stamp, $60 get 2 free stamps, $90 get 3 free stamps etc…

Here's the prize package!

Now it's time for you to hop along to your final stop on the hop, Karen's blog!
