STAMPtember: Distress Inks Two Ways Feat. Tim Holtz STAMPtember Holiday Exclusive

Hi friends! I’m super excited to share a couple of new cards with you today that feature the brand new STAMPtember Holiday exclusive stamp and stencil set created for Simon Says Stamp by Tim Holtz!


This gorgeous set has some fabulous products; from the intricate stamps, to the two-designs-in-one stencil, this is a must have! I’ll be featuring both the stamp set and the stencil in today’s video with a couple of fun Distress Ink techniques. As with all STAMPtember exclusive collaboration sets, this is available for a limited time only… so once it’s gone, it won’t be coming back! You can get your own copy of this set at the Simon Says Stamp shop HERE.

So now let’s take a look at the two cards I’m sharing today!

My first card features an ink blended background, with lots of layers, splatters and even a bit of metallic shimmer…

And my second card uses a fun watercoloring technique by using Distress Inks on vellum…
