Sweet Stamp Shop's January Preview and Release

*Note: If you're looking for Day One of Hero Arts' 2012 Catalog blog hop, please click here


Hello and welcome to the second day of Sweet Stamp Shop's preview and stamp release! I hope you arrived here from Lindsay's fab blog. Today we're all featuring projects using Against the Grain and here's my card.



I clear embossed the woodgrain circles and ink distressed them with various colors of distress inks. I hand cut the circles and attached them to a square notecard.


The sentiment was cut apart to fit. Gotta love that about clear stamps! I rounded one corner of the card and tied a bit of twine and my card was done.

Please visit the rest of the SSS design team to see more ideas using this unique set. Here's the order, and if you ever get lost or if there's a broken link, simply head over to Sweet Stamp Shop.
