Distress Marker Tutorial & Sale, Fabulous Asst Samples!

Hi Everyone,

I have a fabulous tutorial link by DT Member Michele Kovack using Tim Holtz Distress Markers!  Michele used our Dahlia Clear Art Stamp Set to create her pretty card for her tutorial and shows step by step photos with tips! 

I just ordered in some of these wonderful markers so I could have a set myself and I have some extra sets to sell!  We have a limited quantity stock so at this time we are only taking phone orders at 1-888 597-8898.  Regular $114.00 - Special $99.95 with FREE S&H and any FREE Small Clear Art Stamp Set!

Tim Holtz Distress Markers Sets include 36 translucent water-based color markers and 1 opaque white marker with handy dual tips which are ideal for many coloring techniques. You can use the brush tip sides for coloring, stamping and shading and use the fine detail tips for journaling, drawing and adding detail to projects.   

What makes them even cooler is these watercolor markers won’t bead up on our Clear Art Stamps, so you can color directly on the stamps using multiple colors – and even stamp on shiny paper!  When you dilute with water they will still maintain their base color and co-ordinate with other Ranger color products like all the Distress Inks, Paints, Powders, etc.  Layer, blend and wash colors easily with a brush and water. The opaque marker is called called 'Picket Fence' and yes – it really works on dark paper.   REGULAR PRICE $114.00 but On Sale for $99.95 with FREE S&H and any Small Clear Art Stamp Set! Phone orders only 1-888 597-8898

How about this adorable birthday card Michele Kovack just created using our Cutie Cat stamps!  You can also see her super cute doggie card she recently created using the Top Dog set.

Look at this cute Hang in There card by Marie-alice also using our Top Dog Stamp Set and you can see an adorable card she created with our Cutie Cat Set

Here's a fun birthday card by Sophie La Fontaine using our Animal Party Stamps and you can see more wonderful cards by Sophie and other creative ladies  here in Our Splitcoast Gallery

Check out this fun card by DT Member Marilyn McIldoon using the same Happy Birthday sentiment as above from our Party Animal Stamps and then added this cute Charlie Chaplin who is featured on our New Mustache Men Stamps - but we are waiting for stock to arrive as we had to do a 2nd round of proofs for a couple of small adjustments. Also, check out Marilyn's purse she made

I am also in love with the way Darlene Pavlick created this scene and sponged on her background colors so it looks like this girl off our Garden Girls Stamps is raking at sunset or maybe sunrise. It's so inviting, hah-hah, read the sentiment!

Also, see this pretty card that BeckyT designed over at Splitcoast Stampers 
with the same concept.  Beautiful job on both!

 Congratulations to Melisa Waldorf who has a stunning card she created using our Garden Girl Stamps with a brown paper bag on page 73 of the Stampers Sampler Catch Up Issue.

 I love Summer but I keep hearing about crazy heat waves everywhere so here is a link to some great cold drinks recipes on and if you scroll down you will see there are both alcohol and non alcohol yummy drinks!  I will be posting a new free printable soon and a great Giveaway - but in the meantime here is the link to the Printable Hammock image and I also posted Hammock Instructions from a 1893 book back in Aug 2010.

Thanks so much for all the nice compliments and feedback on Our Kitchen Re-do!   Hubby Scott had a big proud smile reading them!

Until next time,

Wishing you joy & creativity
Sandy Redburn

Very good approach! but it would be even better if we use them on Plastic Cards it will help it for long-term usage.
