VIDEO TUTORIAL: Inspired by Nature and the Distressing Kit

2012-02-inspired-by-nature-tami-whiteToday’s video focuses on the Stampin’ Up! Distressing Essentials kit #118762, or as I like to call it the “de-stress” kit hehehe.  It creates gorgeous vintage effects like this one with it’s vintage “flavor” (color) ink spots and stamp. Along with this distressing technique, we will be doing a little “emboss resist” technique to add to this beautiful card. The stamp set is Inspired By Nature #111656.

More video highlights: Share “silly” excitement as I use my brand new Big Shot die cut machine #113439 for the first time…ahhhh the small treasures in life;) It’s not the first time I’ve used my Big Shot (obviously I love my Big Shot from my videos), I just got a new one for my bigger classes and this was it’s first time “out of the package”.


Card and technique inspired by Linda Cullen.
