Celebrating Fall With YNS

Hello! Today I am sharing two cards I created using the adorable YNS stamp set “Sandy Squirrel. I have always enjoyed watching and feeding squirrels. They have so much personality! This stamp set was just too cute to pass up! Here are the cards I made:



I LOVE all of the adorable die cuts that YNS has. That stitched grass, so cute! I colored my squirrel with Copic markers and the background was created using Distress Oxcide ink. 



To create my second card I used the masking technique to create my tower of squirrels. 
Karen at YNS was nice enough to give me an extra Sandy Squirrel stamp set to share with a lucky commentor on today’s post! I’ll draw the name of the winner on Saturday afternoon. Thanks for stopping by!

Your cards are lovely. I love the colours of the papers you chose and your colouring is spot on. There's a squirrel that lives between our guava and coconut trees. While we've never fed him, we do enjoy seeing him scamper around.

Your squirrel cards are adorable. The stacked squirrles made me giggle. We were at my neice's house and her pumpkin was going bad...she said because the squirrels were eating her pumpkins!
