Published, and Prize Winner(s)


It’s a thrill to have several pieces published in Stampington’s new publication 400 More Ideas (formerly called the Catch Up Issue).   These are cards made with Ranger’s Distress and Archival Inks, and Dylusions Ink Sprays.  I’ve also used some of Tim Holtz’s Sizzix dies (hearts, tag, and ticket) as well as stamps, punches, and fibers.

And now for the winner of the 3 Ranger products from this post:

congrats..the pictures are so beautiful full of wonderment for you and beautiful friendships.I am so happy for you.
