YNS After Party!

Hey everyone!  All the release fun is still in full swing over at Your Next Stamp!  Today the whole team is sharing more fun projects with this month’s release on the YNS blog!  Hop on over and check them all out!

I have made another fun card with the Halloween Cuties Set and the large splatter background stamp!  I sponged the yellow ink and then the orange onto the splatter before stamping it. I then stamped the sentiment and the little candy corn is popped up for a little more dimension.
