Distress Oxide Ink on Black Cardstock | Simple Birthday Card

Hello my friends! Today I am sharing a very simple birthday card featuring some Distress Oxide ink blending on black cardstock.

2.jpg

I started with a panel of Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock and masked off a small section on the bottom. I then blended over that section with some Distress Oxide ink.

After that I continued using masking and different colors of Distress Oxide ink to create rays of color which all start in the bottom left hand corner. The colors that I used are Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, Wilted Violet, and Seedless Preserves.

I cut the panel down to 3.75 x 5 and then picked out a sentiment from the Big Birthday Greetings stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I stamped it with Versamark ink and embossed it with Alabaster white embossing powder.

Next I took out the Wish Upon a Star stamp set from Mama Elephant. I used all of the little star stamps from this set to stamp the background with Versamark ink. I then embossed them with Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder.

I added dashed lines around the border of the panel with a white gel pen. I then popped the panel up onto a back card base with foam tape.

Ocean Scene Shaker Card | Distress Oxide Ink Blending

Hey y’all! Today I am making a card featuring another Distress Oxide ink blended ocean sunset! After doing the last one I just had to make another. This time I created a little scene and it is a shaker card! I started with a piece of Bristol Smooth paper and masked off the bottom with some painters tape. I blended the sky using Distress Oxide ink with the colors Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Abandoned Coral, Tumbled Glass, and Salty Ocean. I then masked off the sky and blended the ocean with the same colors excluding the Squeezed Lemonade and adding in Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot.

I then painted in some soft cloud with clean water, dabbing up the ink with a paper towel. I used a Copic Multi-liner to add three little seagulls to the sky. I used the Nested Circle dies from Hero Arts to cut my blended panel into a large circle. I then cut a piece of Neenah Desert Storm, thick plastic, and a scrap piece of paper with the same die. I cut a wavy line across the Neenah Desert Storm circle to create the beach for the scene. I used some Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide ink to add some shading to that piece. I picked out a sentiment from the Beautiful Mermaids stamp set and emossed it on the plastic circle with white embossing powder.

Using the scrap paper circle as a base I started putting the shaker together. I glued the blended circle to it first. I then placed the plastic circle on top so I could line up the beach and glue it to the front of the shaker window. I created a frame using two circle dies out of Gina K Designs In The Navy cardstock. I glued the frame to the plastic circle and then added foam tape around the edge of the back. I added Coast sequins from Lucy’s Cards, large clear glitter, and clear Micro Pearls and closed up my shaker.

I stamped a mermaid from the Little Mermaiden Agenda stamp set from Mama Elephant onto some Neenah cardstock with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink. I colored it with Copics, cut it with the Scan N Cut, and then glued it to my scene. I made a 6x6 card base and glued a piece of patterned paper from the Bee’s Knees pack onto it with my ATG gun. I then adhered the shaker to the center of the card. I took three pieces of think twine and braided them together. I wrapped that around my shaker and glued it down with liquid adhesive.

I had a small amount of warping on the plastic from heat embossing the sentiment which caused a noticeable dip in the shaker frame. To fix that I filled the dip with foam tape and then adhered a second frame on top of the first. Using some gray Copic markers I added a drop shadow for the mermaid and some texture on the beach. I then took a white gel pen and added highlights to the mermaid and some dots to the beach so that it looks like it id glistening.

Distress Oxide Blending An Ocean Sunset Using Masking

Hello my crafty friends! Today I am sharing a sunset ocean card that I created using Distress Oxide ink blending and masking.

2.jpg

I started by taking the Simple Blend Oval stencil mask and taping it over a piece of Bristol Smooth paper. I used painters tape to mask off the bottom half of the oval and then blended a sky on the top half. For the blending I used Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Abandoned Coral, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet, Tumbled Glass, and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks. I painted on some cloud shapes in the sky using clean water on a brush and then dabbing up the water with a paper towel.

4.jpg

I removed the tape covering the bottom half of the oval and then masked off the top half. I blended an ocean on the bottom using the same colors as the sky excluding the Squeezed Lemonade and adding in Black Soot. I removed all of the tape and masking and then placed the oval stencil piece over the top of my blended design. I taped down the Waves stencil from Simon Says Stamp over the top of that and went over it with Fallen Snow Glitter Glaze.

1.jpg

Once the texture paste was dry I added in highlights to the sky and ocean with a white gel pen. I also added some seagulls with a Copic multiliner. I cut the panel down to 3.75 x 5 and popped it up on a card base with foam tape.

3.jpg

For the sentiment I embossed a stamp from the Tiny Words stamp set from Simon Says Stamp on black cardstock with white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment down into a strip and popped it up on the card. To finish the card up I went over the sentiment and some of the ocean with Wink of Stella glitter.

Simple Stamping and Copic Coloring | Birthday Card

Hello all! Today I have a very simple and easy card design using some products from Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp.

1.jpg

I stamped the sentiment from the Stop Drop Party stamp set onto a panel of Neenah cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Next I stamped some of the pandas from the Little Agenda Panda set on the panel with Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink.

2.jpg

I colored the panda images with Copic markers. Next I took out the Little Agenda Trains stamp set and picked out the cloud and stars stamps. I stamped them in the background on the panel with Fog ink from Simon Says Stamp.

I glued a piece of Really Rainbow cardstock to an A2 card base. I glued the stamped panel to a piece of black cardstock and then adhered the whole thing to the base. I used a light gray marker to add some shading to the clouds.

4.jpg

To finish up the card I added Wink of Stella glitter to the clouds and stars. I also used a white gel pen to add highlights and details to the pandas.

Making Summer Cards With Basic Supplies | Jess and Laura's Hooray for 3K Video Hop

Hello my friends! Today’s cards are part of a fun video hop to celebrate a couple of fellow YouTubers hitting 3k subscribers on their channels! We are celebrating with some summer themed card and also a giveaway with lots of sponsors. Check out the video to find out more!

4.jpg

When I thought of summer I thought of watermelon. So I came up with this idea on how to create some watermelons using basic supplies. I pulled out a bunch of different colors of Simon Says Stamp cardstock and cut them with the nested oval dies from Hero Arts. The colors that I used were Green Leaf, Green Apple, White, Cotton Candy, and Lipstick Red.

1.jpg

After cutting the ovals, I cut each of them a second time so that I could in-lay each piece to make a watermelon. I used the larges oval die to cut a piece of scrap paper and then I used that as a base for the pieces. I glued them down with Gina K Designs Connect Glue. I cut the watermelon into two pieces so that I could make two cards. .

3.jpg

I picked out two pieces of cardstock for my backgrounds. For one I used Cotton Candy cardstock and for the other I used Sea Glass. I stamped a sentiment from the One Cool Pineapple stamp set on both of them with Versafine Onyx Black ink I popped up that background on A2 card bases with foam tape and I also popped up the watermelons on the cards.

2.jpg

I added black sequins to the melons to look like seeds. I took out some doodlebug tiny heart stickers and added some of them around each of the sentiments. To finish up the cards I added dashed lines around the border of the backgrounds with a white gel pen.
