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.  


Supplies:
Stamps: Large Ink Splatter stamp from Your Next Stamp, Halloween Cuties set (bat) from Your Next Stamp, Ghostly Greetings (Boo!) from Your Next Stamp
Ink: Ranger Distress Ink (purple, orange and black)
Papers: Georgia Pacific cardstock, American Crafts Cardstock
Accesories: Your Next Stamp Stitching Holes die, baker's twine, Recollections embellishment, YNS GumDrop (Black Glitter), Making Memories tag, Copic Markers

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


Next up I have an Autumn Greetings card with the new Wood grain stamp.  I used a few older fall themed stamps sets on this creation.


Supplies:
Stamps: Woodgrain Stamp from Your Next Stamp, Fall of Colour from Your Next Stamp, Autumn Greetings (sentiment) from Your Next Stamp

Papers: Kraft cardstock, My Mind's Eye
Ink: Brown Distress Ink, Palette Noir black ink

Accessories: Twine, Copic Markers, Darice embossing folder
