Happy new week to you! Just wanted to stop in and say Howdy-do!

It's a new week over here at thekristiesessions and I wanted to stop in and share a few things.

First, last friday I was over at A Walk Down Memory Lane with a little post with the embossing resist technique using distress inks. I love that technique so much. It's fun and easy! Do you have distress inks? I had some a loooong while back but didn't appreciate them much and got rid of them. (also in hindsight, I didn't have very fun colors!) Now with these {not so} new mini ink pads and circle applicators, I have a whole new love for them all! I love that you can buy a set of 4 colours. Ink can get expensive so it's nice to get to try out different colours for a reasonable price. And I love that you can use them for so many techniques! Anyway, check out the post HERE if you are curious.

And here is a little HELLO card to share with you today.

This little guy was made using some white heat embossing and then colouring in spaces using Copic markers. It's a really simple treatment, but I do love the results!

As soon as I saw this Papertrey Ink set, I knew I wanted it. It took me a long time to actually get it, but I do not regret it! This card would be lovely using multiple colours for the flowers, but I love the blue and white combo too. The sentiment is a few die cuts stacked on each other. The bottom layers being white and the top blue layer off set just a bit to the side.

And that's all for me today! Thanks for taking the time to visit. I hope you have a great great week!
Join me over at A Walk Down Memory Lane blog for my friday post and I'll be back with some CutCardstock.Com love the beginning of next week too!

Kristie!! This looks far from simple... but certainly simply gorgeous! Side note, I only use my distress inks for water-coloring!
