I had a lot of fun with this stamp set.  I created a Valentine's Day card with this stamp set.  I was inspired by our Wishes book and our newest Constant Campaign: Hearts for Haiti.

The technique for distressing the textured cardstock was the same as on page 100 in Wishes.  I used my stipple brush from my distressing kit and cocoa reinker.  I dipped my brush into the reinker and brushed off the excess reinker.  I then wiped my stipple brush towards the edges of my textured cardstock, creating the distressed look on the edges of my cardstock.

Supplies used (all Close to My Heart):
 (p. 100) Pattern: Top Band
 (the lighter brown is the backside of the Cocoa Textured CS)

I hope you enjoyed what I have done with this wonderful stamp set.  Make sure you stop at our next stop on the Blog Hop, Dawn's Blog, to see her wonderful creations.
