Guest Desiging at The Damsel of Distressed Cards!!

Happy Friday!! I hope you have fun plans for the weekend!! I am super-excited to be guest designing for my sweet friend Becca, THE Damsel of Distressed Cards :) If you haven't visited Becca's blog, yet, you are so missing out!! She is an amazingly talented crafter with a style that ranges from vintage to distressed to grungy to CAS to humorous!! She does it all!! And she often adds tutorials, too, which are fabulous!! And her posts always make me laugh!! I encourage you to visit her right away - you will not be sorry!!


For my guest design spot, Becca asked me a few questions that you can read on her blog. She also decided that we would both CASE one of my old cards and she chose this one from July of last year. So on a fresh take of the card, I came up with these:


Lots of Distress Ink, distressed edges and glittery birds.


Both cards are pretty much the same...I stamped the trees once and then restamped without reinking for a ghosting effect.


You will definitely want to head to Becca's blog to see her take on the card. You will also get to know me a little better with a Q&A session as well. Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great weekend :)

  43. All 3 card are stunning. I think they would make fabulous picture frames with pics in the areas that you stamped the sentiments. I may have to scrap lift the concept if you don;t mind.
    Have a creative day.
