Distress Oxide Inks


Distress Oxide inked background with Penny Black’s beautiful Pure Iris stamped on top. Quietfire’s simply elegant Thinking of You stamps finishes off this sympathy card



I heat embossed Stampin Up’s hydrangea Stamp from their best thoughts set in white on watercolour paper. I just received the new colors of Distress Oxide Inks today. So I used Shaded lilac, mermaid lagoon, blueprint sketch and put some  of each Color directly on acrylic block and used a water brush to pick up Color and paint the flowers. Sentiment from a recollection set heat embossed in silver. I cut the panel and added a strip of silver in between the two pieces and replaced them


I am using up some card starts that I have in a drawer that I started and didn’t know what to do with. The background is a script heat embossed watercolour piece that I swiped through Distress Inks on a craft mat. Happy birthday from Quietfire and Elizabeth Crafts cut on an alcohol inked piece that was done in teals. Butterfly is from Martha Stewart


What is a day in the studio without at least one northern lights card?! Alcohol inks on Yupo, swiped. Greeting by Penny Black. Marvy’s snow marker used on the black panel and puffed up with the heat gun

After doing a dirty pour on an 8×8 canvas,(left), I  swiped a piece of Yupo through the leftovers and created a lovely peacock colored panel. Added a peacock stamp and a sentiment stamp from Heartfelt Creations and created the card on the right

Hibiscus stencil

5435EB9A-28C5-470E-AAB5-8A14A1F9E92CI used deep pink, purple and stream colors of Alcohol Inks on Yupo then put the hibiscus stencil (designs by Ryn) on top and using a felt topped applicator with more stream Alcohol ink and some blending solution, tapped it through the stencil creating the bleached design. Birthday greeting by Phill Martin heat embossed with silver on vellum cut on a curve. Placed on soft grey cardstock

3D butterfly drift

Simon Says Stamp Butterfly Drift die cut once on a vibrant alcohol inked Yupo and once on black card stock. I put the colored outline down first and inserted the black butterflies but did not like the look so I added foam squares and popped up the matching colored butterflies on top of the black ones. Quietfire’s Happy Birthday in elegant script in black and score lines finishes the card
