Stamping with Distress Stains at the CLASSroom + Giveaway!

Hello, there!

One product I get a lot of questions about is Distress Stains. The most common question is: “Do I really NEED them?” The answer?



To find out why I think they are fabulous, head on over to the CLASSroom with Ellen Hutson. I am a guest on this fabulous education blog today. And there is a giveaway. Yay! Here is a peek at one of the three cards I share…

And I share step photos on stamping with Distress Stains...

… and coloring flowers with them…

Fun fun fun. Be sure to go HERE to the CLASSroom to see all the finished cards and step photos.

And since Ellen and her team are so wonderful, they put together a great prize! Just leave a comment here  for a chance to win these goodies. Yay!
