{Spotlight Project} Maria Emboss Resists with Distress Oxides

Hello STAMPlorations friends! I'm playing around with Distress Oxide inks, today in combination with the emboss resist technique. The result is so tactile - I wish you could reach out and touch it!

The suede feel of the Distress Oxides. The clear embossing. The sentiment of various thicknesses. Wunnerful, wunnerful. Let's see how I created it.

{Happy 5th Birthday, CASology!}

{Inspiration Project Post #145}

Hello STAMPlorations Friends! Welcome to one last helping of projects from the Inspiration team before we take a little Summer Break. Don't worry we'll be back again in October with weekly inspiration and there is a full program of Summer treats awaiting you in the meantime.

This last week in July, the Inspiration girls are showcasing stamps designed by STAMPlorations owner Shery under her label Shery Russ Designs.

All of Shery's stamp sets will be on sale for the week - no coupon needed; the discount is automatically applied. And if you happen to have a coupon code, such as a personal discount code for being a stamp club subscriber, you can use the code to get an even better deal.

All of Shery's stamp sets will be reduced by 10% except for Faith Expressions which will be 20% off until July 31st.

We'll still randomly draw a winner from all the comments left on our Inspiration Posts, so have a look and leave a comment for your entry to win a $10 gift certificate to the store.
