Stamping with Distress Oxide Inks

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Tutorials, Videos

Happy Tuesday everyone.. It’s Holly here today with a new video and a card using some of the new released Distress Oxide inks and the Concord & 9th Flower Turnabout stamp set.

I started by stamping the Flower Turnabout stamp onto some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper using Picked Raspberry, Salty Ocean and Cracked Pistachio Distress Oxide Inks. This inks are a Pigment hybrid and can be used to stamp images unlike the regular Distress Inks were you don’t get a clear impression.

After I stamped all the images I added some water with the Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer. I used my heat tool to dry the ink and then I added some water splatter with a paint brush and dabbed the excess off with a paper towel. Once everything was dry I added some leaves, dots and flower centers with some Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink. Then I adhered the panel to a card base. I die cut a stitched circle from the MFT Tag Builders 6 die-maics set. I stamped the sentiment using the Black Soot Distress Ink as well and heat set it. Then I adhered it to the card front with some foam tape.

I stamped and fussy cut two additional flowers and added them along the sentiment circle. For a touch of bling I added some Mixed Cupped Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh. You can find more details on how I created these cards in the video below.


Furr-Ever Friends

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Happy Friday everyone, it’s Holly here today… Have you checked out the July Release from Newton’s Nook Designs? They are celebrating their Four year Anniversary this month with 6 new Stamp sets, a border die set and 4 Stencils. Today I’m using one of the new stencils from the July Release and the Furr-Ever Friends Set from the June Release.

I started with a piece of Bristol cardstock, using the Paw Print stencil form Newton’s Nook. I smooshed some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide onto the back of the stencil. Then I spritzed it with some water and flipped it over and laid it down on the Bristol. I let it sit for a few minutes then I used a paper towel to dab up any excess that may of come through the openings. I heat set the panel with a heat tool. The I die cut the panel using the MFT Blue Prints 15 Die-namics. You can see how I created the background and more ways to use these stencils in the video below.

I stamped the halo image from the Forever Friends set onto the panel with some Gold embossing powder , then I adhered the panel to a White top folding card base. I die cut the stitched cloud from the MFT End of the Rainbow die-namic and stamped the sentiment in the center. I adhered the Cloud with some foam tape leaving enough area to add the cat silhouette. I stamped the cat silhouette in Black ink and I heat embossed the Wings onto some Vellum in Gold. I cut the images out and adhered them to the cloud. For an extra touch of sparkle I added some Mixed Sequins from Neat & Tangled.

Die Cutting a Background

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, hello!  And happy middle of the week!!!  It’s Lisa here with you today and I have a card I’ve created with one of the newer My Favorite Things Die Sets called STAX Color Drop.  I loved this set the minute I saw it, and it was just as fun to play with as I imagined it would be.  Take a peek…

To create this fun background that you see here I started by diecutting the two different sized drops from several Lawn Fawn cardstock colors.  Next, I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers in Surf Blue, Blue Turquoise, and Satsuma to add some coloring and dots to the larger drops.  I used my Xyron Sticker Maker to make the backside of each drop sticky and randomly adhered them to my card front.  Finally, I added a sentiment from the MFT Whimsical Wishes Stamp Set.

I hope this gives you one more idea with how you can create your own backgrounds with a single die set.  We hope to see your projects in our latest challenge too!  Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

The New Distress Oxide inks will be arriving in the MarkerPop store later this week so be sure to order yours now. I also used the Mama Elephant Pizazz Pieces Creative Cuts and Mama Elephant Jingle Greetings Set.

I die cut a piece of watercolor paper using the Dotted die in the Pizazz Pieces creative cuts then I added some Iced Spruce Distress Oxide Ink. I added a few splatters of water to active the ink and then blotted off any excess. Once that was dry I adhered the panel to a A2 size Red card base. I stamped each of the Poinsettia images onto some watercolor paper using Ranger Archival Black ink and colored them in with the Candied Apple and Lucky Clover, Vintage Photo and Fossilized Amber Oxide Inks. I added some splatters of water as well and dabbed off any excess.

I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and adhered them to the front of the card with some foam adhesive. Then I stamped the sentiment in VersaMark ink and heat embossed it in Gold. I added some Gold Wink of Stella to the center of the flowers and some Mixed Gold sequins for a little more sparkle.
