Hello everyone and welcome to Day 2 of the Your Next Stamp Winter New Release Sneak Peeks!!  YNS is releasing some AMAZING winter and Christmas stamps on Thursday, October 7 and we're having a blog hop to celebrate - Woohoo!!! In the 3 days leading up to the release the DT are sneak peeking some of the stamps!

Today Kerri, Maureen, Linda and  I are sneak peeking some of these fun stamps! The image I am sneak peaking is Winter Warm Up a stamp set of 3 mugs.  illustrated by  Heather Rolin of Heather's Designs. Heather has recently joined the team of YNS illustrators and has designed a gorgeous set of Christmas themed stamps for our new release!

 I used some of my new goodies from Stampin Up!!  My Candy cane Christmas paper.  It has so many fun designs and such soft colors.  I love it for making a Christmas project with non-traditional colors!!  I colored the mugs softly with copics.  The Candy cane sentiment is also a sneak peak of what is to come.
