That’s a lot of Distress Ink…

Found this old card while digging through my computer.

And the first thought to my head? “Oh my, that’s a lot of Distress Ink.” Ha.

The background? Covered white cardstock with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and then stamped on it with water. The flower? Inked it with Milled Lavendar Distress Ink and sprayed it with water to blend. The petals? Stamped it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink.

What can I say… I just like Distress Inks. :)

Card Supplies:

I have been finishing up plans for my classes for Absolutely Everything, Buffalo Stamps and Simply Scrapbooks and thought I would show a few more peeks… (For more info on classes, click HERE.)

Can’t wait. Love teaching.


True Scrap
was a huge success this weekend! Wonderful reviews are pouring in… the whole event rocked. You can still buy a recording of all the classes, including my 35-minute technique class HERE. And if you sign up through THIS link, you will receive a link to an additional private stamping how-to video class later this month. Just a fun perk and “thank you.” (Please note: You must buy through THIS link. Private links will be sent out soon. If you already purchased through my link, please send me your receipt so I can add you to the list!)

In my True Scrap stamping class (which is one of 12 classes), I review:

  • Why Stamping (with examples)
  • Stamping + Scrapbooking (with examples)
  • My Three Favorite Techniques along with 3 never-seen scrapbook pages and 6 never-seen cards. New techniques!

Thank you to everyone who signed up! We sure had fun.


By the way… I will be giving some prizes away to random comments this week, thanks to donations from Simon Says Stamp. You never know when I will pick someone! See you soon.
