A few weeks ago I had a stamping night with my upline Chris Parker-Barnes. I got to have a play with Chris’ Stampin’ Up! Distressing Essentials kit (p143 IB&C). I used the kit with this card I made using the Kimono Kids stamp set (p42 IB&C)
Here is a close up of the Tea Stained look I created on the outside edges of the designer paper.
The kit comes with the following items:
* 1 x flat stamp
* 4 x distressing ink spots (tea stain, charcoal, mahogany & navy)
* 1 x sanding block
* 1 x emery board
* 3 x precision files
I also made another card on the night using my Butterfly Prints stamp set (p75 IB&C) and Chris’ Curly Cute stamp set (p110 IB&C) for the sentiment.
I used the Big Shot with Chris’ Elegant Lines embossing folder (p151 IB&C) and used the sanding block from the Distressing Essentials kit to sand back the paper so the embossed image would stand out.
I used the new Designer Series Paper: Love Letter (p125 IBC) on both of the cards.
