From Clean & Simple to Vintage

I'm finally starting to get my voice back, so I have a new video tutorial for you today.  I absolutely love the new Stampin' Distress tool and many of my customers ordered it after we made these cards with the Feeling Sentimental stamp set.

I started with the Clean & Simple version of the card shown below:


Then, using the exact same stamps, ink, and paper, we distressed & sponged the card to give it a vintage look.


Check out the video below to see how easy it is to age & distress your paper.
