I have two projects to share with you today.  First up is a Halloween themed card using the new Large Ink Splatter stamp.  I have to say I'm in LOVE this this.  It's a nice clean and tidy way to make your card look messy.  For this one I stamped in three different colours of ink for my card base.  Also, along the bottom of this card I used the AMAZING new stitching holes die template.  I hand stitched with two different colours of baker's twine.

Here is a close up so you can see the stitching I did with the new stitching template.
