I’m happy to announce that I have added one more feather to my cap, (don’t worry, I have a huge head capable of many, many feathers). I’m honored to join the design team at Lindy’s Stamp Gang! I’m still a Close to My Heart consultant, and the Lindy’s Stamp Gang products work so well with CTMH, I’m just tickled pink! Well… purple and green right now.
The card above is from my first video using Lindy’s products. I used Starburst Stains from the Haunted Halloween collection, Freaky Frankenlime and Witch’s Potion Purple, plus Moonshadow Mist in Golden Doubloons. I started out sponging and stamping the background of this card in Sky ink, from Close to My Heart, then oversprayed with green and gold.
Let me tell you how cool these sprays and stains are! The Starburst stains are incredibly vibrant. No wimpy watered down colors, these are striking! The entire card shown here is done on Colonial White cardstock, an off-white color (well, the dark brown tree mat is Cocoa cardstock, but everything else is Colonial White). They come with a dauber cap or a spray cap, and you can order extras and swap them out. The lace design above was created so easily. I just set a piece of cheap-o lace over the cardstock and spritzed right over it. Remove the lace and ta-da!
The watercolor effect on the trees above is done with a dauber cap. Just pat the color onto the stamp and plop it down on your cardstock. Instant hand-painted look!
If you like distressing and aging your cardstock, the Moonshadow mist is awesome. It’s based on the old-school Walnut Inks, (blast from the past!) but it has a sparkly addition that glimmers when the light catches it! In fact, ALL the sprays, stains and mists have a glimmery base. This Golden Doubloons color looks dark brown from some angles, I did my best to catch that amazing golden glint. Here’s another angle…
Want to talk prices? The sprays and stains are just $3.95 each, and even less per bottle when you purchase them in coordinated sets of five. Check out the Try Me Kits, perfect little sample packs of a single color in each product.

Feel free to laugh at how wiggly I am in the beginning. I can’t seem to sit still. I’m not just a talking head, I’m a bobble head apparently.
