Do you STRESS over DISTRESS, I DO!  Let's overcome it!




Do you stress over distressing? Love the look of mixed media  backgrounds  but hate the mess??? Today Maymay walked us through how to use some of our favorite stamp sets to get an amazing background!  So gather up those supplies and let's create!! 



We are using a black A2 card base that measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" 

Mat is 4" x 5  1/4" , we used a pattern paper 

You will need 8 pieces of white cardstock cut to 3/4" x 1" to create the postage stamps

Cut one sentiment strip at  2 1/2" x 1"  from white cardstock
