Don’t be so diSTRESSED…

We just put the finishing touches on a fun project at Splitcoast! Our Product Focus review team had an opportunity to work with a new Clearsnap ink product. I had time to create a few fun projects for the gallery, and I thought I’d share them here.

I made the card above a few weeks ago for my Cutting With Detailed Dies tutorial, but also used the new Clearsnap ink in Dark Cashmere. I do love a nice, rich chocolate brown ink. These stamp cleanly and dry quickly. I love the circle deer die element (Beauty Lies Within – Taylored Expressions). So perfect for the many deer hunter’s in my life, and the heart (Hearts-a-Plenty Die-namics – MFT) and label (Label Stacklets 2 – Taylored Expressions)dress it up just enough that this works well for either a male or a couple. The Woodgrain Background is from MFT, and the Proverbs 16:9 verse is from Verve’s Scripture Medley 3.

This is probably how I use distress inks most often… to give different papers on a single project the same tone by distressing the edges… here I used Dark Cashmere. The typewriter is stamped with Antique Moss, both from Clearsnap. This typewriter stamp and die combo is a fave… sadly, discontinued, but from the set Just My Type from MFT Stamps. The little kraft doily is cut with Mini Detailed Doily Dienamics from MFT.

And, lastly for today, a clean and simple nod to yesterday’s Color Challenge at Splitcoast. I used MFT’s Peaceful Wildflower stamps and coordinating die-namic set  for a clean and simple. The Clearsnap colors that I used here are Venetian Lace, Triumphant Red and Dark Cashmere. 

Still many, many fun things going on… hope you are creating time to stay crafty!
