Hi everyone it’s Holly from the Your Next Stamp Design Team. STAMPtember is in full swing and Your Next Stamp is excited to be joining in the Fun. I don’t send a lot of Halloween cards but sometimes the sets are just too adorable and you have to add them to your collection. And it’s even better when the Sentiments work for other occasions. The FANG- TASTIC set from Your Next Stamp is perfect for any occasion. I used the Bat image and the fun Sentiment along with the New Batty Background Stamp for a “Love” card.
I created a Black top folding card base and then I cut two front panels from some Neenah Solar White 80b card stock. I used the YNS Circle Dies and Stitching Marks Dies to create Three windows in the front of one of the panels. Then I traced the opening lightly with a pencil onto the other panel. Using some Post it I masked off the openings and created an Ombre’ look with some Wilted Violet Distress Ink and a Mini ink Blending tool. Once the background was dry I stamped the Batty Background using some VersaFine Black Onyx ink. I adhered the front panel with the windows over the background using some Tombow Multi Liquid Glue and attached the panel to the front of the Black card base using some Advanced Tape Glider.
I stamped the Bat image onto some Neenah Solar White card stock with SSS Intense Black ink and colored it in with Copics. Using the coordinating FANG-TASTIC dies cut the image out with the Big Shot and adhered it to the card with some Foam Tape. I stamped the sentiment onto a some Neenah Solar White and die cut it using the YNS Cool Tag 3 Die set and adhered it just under the Bat image. For an additional pop of the Purple color I added some Comic Crush Gumdrops from YNS.
