All About You Dies & Distress Oxide Backgrounds!



Hi!

I am back with another post sharing some fun cards I created using distress oxide inks.



I made several backgrounds while playing with distress oxides today! However, just 2 of them turned into final cards for now! I will share the remaining as they turn into cards here or on Instagram Channel. These inks are so much fun to play with!

For my first card, I used a strip of wide Post-It tape to mask horizontal stripes and blend different colors of Distress Oxide ink. [Credits: I saw Kristina Werner doing something like this in a recent video]. I die cut the words Thank You from All About You Die Cut twice, stacked them together and heat-emboss with Gold Embossing Powder and adhered those to the background.



For my next card, the background was were created by putting Distress Oxide Ink & water on a craft sheet and press White Watercolor cardstock by Ranger into it. Then, heat set, spritz with water, heat set.. repeat. Then, die cut the words celebrate You from All About You Dies by Concord & 9th. I colored the die cut hearts with Red Altenew Ink, Wink of Stella Clear Shimmer and Ranger Glossy Accents and adhere them to center of letter 'O'.



Isn’t this All About You Die Set by Concord & 9th classic? Love! Here's link to another card I created last week using these dies if you're interested in more.

Hope you like these. Thank you for stopping by!

My FIRST Layering Flower Bouquet Card!

Hello Everyone!   I hope you had a great week and looking to another crafty weekend?

Now, I made these sweet Note cards to ‘Just Saying Hello’, for those times you just need to say Hello.

These cards were a bit of a challenge for me, since these are my First Layering Cards and speaking of Challenges I entered my card into the Altenew Inspiration Challenge and you can, too.

June 2017 Inspiration Challenge – White On White Focal Point

My Card:



I choose to create a one layer card using Garden Treasure Stamp set by Altenew.



 

I made masks for the large flower, leaves and the small flower by cutting them out with my Scan n cut2, but you can stamp the impressions on masking paper and cut them out by hand.





After stamping my images, using Altenew inks, I used my bone folder to crease the upper and lower sides, to make the ‘band’ .  This makes the image appear as if it’s raised up on the card.

Then, I  stamped and embossed  ‘Just Saying Hello’ sentiment, from the Painted Butterfly Stamp set by Altenew.

All my supplies were purchased at Kraftgali store.

Thank you, for visiting and please let me know if  you have any questions or would like to see a process video?…I’m here to help. 🙂

Hugs and Blessings,

Father’s Day Cards with Embossed Acetate!

Another post by Our VERY Talented KimberlyRae from Kreations by KimberlyRae!

Hello Everyone and Welcome!

Father’s day is coming up and I want to share some cards I made for the men in my life.

I used products from  Concord & 9th,  Avery Elle and Altenew and Distress Oxide inks.  Plus, some Heat Resistant Acetate!

Now, you must know,  it’s a zoo around this place.  When I start a card I have an idea in my head and as I go along BAMMM another flies in and BAMM another and another!  You know what I’m talking about, right? 😉



I started out with Concord & 9th’s Triangle Turnabout stamp and inked up with my lightest color first and up to my darkest color, turning one click for each color.  I then set it aside and inked up another in a different color scheme.

The inks I used for the BLUE card:  Broken China OXIDE, Faded Jeans OXIDE, Altenew Industrial Diamond and Altenew Jet Black.
PURPLE card:  Wilted Violet OXIDE, Altenew Midnight Violet , Altenew Industrial Diamond and Altenew Jet Black.
GREEN card:  Altenew Volcano Lake, Altenew Lagoon , Altenew Industrial Diamond and Altenew Jet Black.



Then, after the pieces were all dry, I placed one-by-one  in  my ‘sparkle box’ and spritzed it with Glitzy Spritzy shimmer spray from Lindy’s Stamp Gang [any glitzy spray you have on hand will do].  That completes the turnabout stamping.

Now, onto the embossing-  I Cut  ‘Hot off the Press’ Heat Resistant Acetate.  In this case, for my A2 sized cards.  Make sure you leave enough at the top for a flap to fold over.

I put the acetate into my Stamp positioning tool and centered the large ‘Dad’ stamp.



*VERY IMPORTANT*  Use an anti-static tool all over the acetate!  You can wipe it clean with a tissue later.

Ink up your stamp with VersaMark and emboss with white embossing powder.  I used  Ranger, but any white embossing powder you have on hand will do.  I put my piece down flat on  my craftmat and heat embossed it.





I made multiple cards so I just left the stamp in there, until I was done with all of them.

Then, I heat embossed the three Avery Elle VELLUM envelopes in the same way.  These envelopes are heavy duty and do not wrap…they are a breeze to work with!  I’m totally going to mail these in the envelopes.



I’m real happy with my cards…I hope my guys are, too

Thank you, for visiting…please, let me know if  you have any questions…see ya soon

Hugs and Blessings,

Quick Thank You Card..



I made this simple card using  #dottyturnabout background stamps and All About you Dies by Concord & 9th. It was no effort to finish the card in less than 30 minutes! Happy with the results.
