I have been having fun with new stamps again. You will be able to purchase stamps, supplies, and tools from the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog from Stampin' Up! starting July 1st, and I thought I would see if I could get you excited about what is to come! Here is a Hostess Set from the new catalog called Faith in Nature.
I love these images, and couldn't resist putting all three on one card! I stamped the images with Early Espresso Craft Ink, covered them with Clear Embossing Powder, and then melted it with the Heat Tool. Next, I lightly sponged the images with Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, and Crumb Cake inks.
Here is another version of the paper, using a different stamp set. I wanted to show you an example without anything covering it up so you can get a good view of the Wallpaper. I haven't distressed this piece yet, and think it would work great just as it is. As usual, the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint doesn't show in the photo, so you will have to use your imagination!
I showed you the first card I made with this technique in this post HERE. I promised you a video tutorial, and here it is:
Are you getting excited about the new catalog yet? I hope so. Be sure to check back, as I will be sharing more samples soon.
Now go get your fingers inky. The Distressed Wallpaper Technique will surely help with that!
