Here are my contributions for todays hop. Enjoy! The link list is below. Best of luck and happy hopping!
For the sympathy card background, use the wrinkle-free distress technique. I chose three shades of Ranger Distress ink, all available through the MFP store. Take a sheet of wax paper, swipe the edges of the ink pads on the wax paper. Spritz them with a bit of water until the colors beads up. Take your cardstcok and press it on the paper, then lift up, turn the paper a bit and press again on the ink. Its okay if the ink runs. I learned this I think, from notimetostamp's blog.
Dry your sheet of cardstock with a heat gun, then you can stamp over it with a nice thick craft ink and emboss or just use it as a background.
