Distressed Postage Due

It is my turn to host the Free 4 All challenge at Splitcoast Stampers this week.   I have been thinking about the new/unused stamps that I have that have never seen ink so I have challenged everyone to use one of their new/unused stamps.  If there be one who does not have a new/unused stamp, they will use a stamp they have not used in a very long time.  

I used two new/unused stamp sets on this card.  They are Stampin' Up Postage Due and Gorgeous Grunge.   I white embossed the image and then  I used Tim Holtz distress inks.  I really like the colors. 

If you have any of those new/unused stamps, be sure to come over and join us for the challenge.  I hope to see you there.


  1. Wow, Shirley -this is gorgeous! I love the images you used and the inks/colors are perfect. Beautiful work - I will have to try and play in the challenge this weekend. Many hugz - miss you!

  2. Oh my word, Shirley!!! I absolutely love this gorgeous grungy creation! White embossing is such a neat effect and your ink colors are fantastic! Just gorgeous!

  3. Wow, did you do a fantastic job with this stamp set - I love the color mix over the white embossing and using the Gorgeous Grunge, distressing the edges and adding the metal charms REALLY added to the awesomeness of your card!! Way to go!

    This is one challenge I should hop on, since I know I have stamps that have never seen ink - tons of them!

  4. What a fun and interesting card. SO much to check out! Thanks for sharing!
