Once again…Thank you so much for all the kind emails, phone calls, notes on orders and on social media. I really appreciate all of you and your support. The past 14 years was magical and amazing because of YOU!
I know many products are now sold out (thank you) I’ve done a final inventory count and updated the YNS website with CRAZY LOW final sales. My plan is close down the website on Oct 15 2023.
Be sure to browse the The Outlet section of the online store as all remaining in stock items are in this section of the store. All the products in the YNS Store are retiring and will not be restocked.
FYI – I will be personally hand packaging all the final orders so to fill orders faster and due to the discounted pricing not all YNS products will be packaged with a product card and bag. If you want the packaging please leave me a note on your order and I will provide packaging while quantities last. Also please allow 5-7 business days for your order to ship.

Today, guest Kim Taylor is sharing a colorful thank you card.
For this happy bright project I used the So Many Stars Stencil from YNS for the background and ink blended a rainbow with some dye based inks. The Pick Me Up stamp set is small but mighty and I used it and the coordinating dies as the focal point for this top folding A2 card – the stencil, stamp & dies are still available at the time of posting this. I used the inks as paint and lightly painted in each of the balloons. The letters were stamped in the coordinating colours and cut out with the die. The sentiment is stamped in Versafine and the whole front is matted on a black mat and placed on a white card base.
Crafty Tip: I save my scraps of white card stock and use them for building dimension. The main image has 3 extra layers underneath it for dimension. I like this method as it really adds stability to an image that has fine cut outs like these balloon strings. It also keeps it from bending during mailing.

Do you have an alphabet stamp set in your stash? Alphabet sets are so versatile and can help you create the perfect sentiment. Grab the 3D Letters and Numbers stamp set and start creating your own sentiments!
One of my favorite YNS creations is this card that I created pairing the Fuzzy Monsters stamp set with the 3D Letters and Numbers. I wanted to pull in all the monsters and the 3D letters made it possible to spread out the sentiment along the bottom of the slimline card.
A huge thanks to Karen for making me a part of the YNS family oh so many years ago. I have had a blast stamping away with all the cute stamp sets and getting to know so many people in the stamping community. I wish you all the best Karen!!!
Who doesn’t need a cute baby card now and then right? This card is made with the YNS Baby Blessings set.
I kept it very simple with an ink swiped background aka swinking (iykyk), some fluffy clouds, a sun and the image of the stork and baby. The images are coloured with alcohol markers and some are highlighted with an Aqua Shimmer Pen. This stamp set is still available as of today. One of my favourite things about sets like these is how versatile they are. You can use just one image or build a whole scene with the set.
