I Spy YNS Saturday – A Chameleon

Those chameleons are everywhere – the ones from the One in a Chameleon stamp set that is!

This week we spied Caroline Paton’s chameleon card and knew that we had to share it with everyone – so fresh and colorful!  The neutral card base in the contrasting color really makes the white layer pop.  Then topping it with the chameleon and coordinating colored paint splatters really pulls it all together.


We are always on the lookout for creations featuring YNS products.  Be sure to tag your photos with #yournextstamp.

Happy Stamping!
