Layered Stamping

Just sharing a simple card that I made with the layered stamping technique by using two similar stamps--G5311 Silhouette Spray and G4917 Dandelion. First, I embossed the image with white embossing powder and then stamped with two distress inks (Spiced Marmalade and Vintage photos). Super easy, but oh..so .. rewarding.

Last weekend I was prompted by the CREATE blog (see here) to make another Easter card. This time I decide to used up as many SRM Stickers Express Yourself (Easter) as possible. I added some stamped images from the Hero Arts Easter stamp set.
Happy Easter
Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow for some BIG announcement--no, I'm not pregnant!
