Distress Oxide Winter Sky - Mama Elephant's New Release

For today’s card I used some Distress Oxide ink to blend a winter sky as well as a few different stamp sets from Mama Elephant’s newest release.


I started out by blending a few different colors of Distress Oxide ink onto a piece of Bristol Smooth paper. I used the colors Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Salty Ocean, and Black Soot. Once the blending was done I used my heat tool to make sure the ink was completely dry. I prepped the paper with my powder tool and stamped a sentiment with Versamark ink. I then embossed it with a white embossing powder.


I picked out a circle die that was slightly bigger than the sentiment and cut some masking paper with it. I placed that circle of masking paper over the sentiment and then taped down my paper to a board. Next I used a stencil with a bunch of circles on it and placed it over the panel. I went over the stencil with Nuvo Moonstone Glitter Paste.


While the glitter paste was drying I stamped the cute little kitty snowman from the Mama Elephant stamp set “Yappy Woofmas” on some Neenah Solar White card stock. I colored the snowman in with my Copic markers. Check out the video for all of the coloring details! I cut out the kitty snowmans with my Scan N Cut 2.


Using some scissors I cut a curvy line across an A2 size piece of card stock. This created a nice snowy ground for my card. I took my Distess Oxide panel and adhered it to a card base with my ATG gun. Next I popped up my snow covered ground along the bottom of the card base with foam tape. I glued the kitty snowman onto the ground. I used a light blue Copic marker to add a drop shadow for the snowman. To finish up the card I added a few highlights to the snowman with a white gel pen. I also added some shimmer to him with my Wink of Stella glitter brush.
