JUST US GIRLS #388 Trend Week

Hello and welcome crafty friends!
It's Trend Week at JUST US GIRLS, and Sue has picked the popular trend -
Multi-Step Stamping!

Here's my take on the challenge:

and the inside:

When I first saw this multi layering peacock stamp set that Hero Arts released earlier this year, 
I knew that it would be coming home to live with me. I just love this stamp! They do
have a 4 pack ink cube set to go along with this set, but of course I don't have it. (not for
lack of trying. It seems to be out of stock everywhere I checked.) So 
I just used inks I already had, and I don't think it turned out too bad. ☺
On the card base, I used one of the feather stamps from the set and stamped it randomly, then heat embossed it using some holographic embossing powder that 
Lindsey gifted me. (thanks again!)

So, have you caved and bought one of the many new layering stamps that 
seem to have exploded onto the craft scene? Now's your chance to ink them
up and make something pretty! Just link up at Just Us Girls so we can
admire it. Need more inspiration? Well then, please go and visit the blogs of 
my teammies, and our guest designer Laurie Unger to see what they created.

Remember, if you are picked as Chic of the Week for any of our April challenges,
you'll be in the running to be our Guest Designer for the month of June!
Have fun and thanks for visiting!
