Birthday Show & Tell

Today I’m sharing a birthday card that I made for my crafty pal, Cheryl. She loves all things purple, so it was an easy choice when pulling ink colors together with myStampBOX stamps.

I started by stamping many images from Funky Circles using three colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks on plain white cardstock. It was…  |  read more »
