Distress Oxide Ink Blending + White Embossing

Ever since I first used a Distress Oxide Ink, I was hooked. The blending is amazing, and the finished look is so smooth and suede-like to the touch. Absolutely beautiful!

I heat embossed with GKD White Embossing Powder on all of these cards. The white really pops on the soft ink blending! KEEP IN MIND- Distress Oxide Ink takes a little while to dry. Make sure that it is completely dry before you  heat emboss over it. (Yes, I learned the hard way. My card looked like it had it’s own personal snowfall. )

All of the stamped images are from the stamp sets You Have My Heart and Tropical Blooms from the Gina K. Designs Hearts & Flowers StampTV Kit.


For this card I used Worn Lipstick , Abandoned Coral, and Picked Raspberry. I masked off a frame, keeping the blending on the inside without having to create another layer of card stock. I cut the hearts out of Heavy Base Weight White card stock, and layered a few together for some dimension. I did add some Deco-Foil Foam Adhesive for just a tad more dimension. This product is the BEST. It is really easy to die-cut, and gives subtle dimension on its own, or even more dimension when combined with die-cut layers of card stock.


For this card I used Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Abandoned Coral. Instead of masking off a frame like on the last card, I die-cut several large frames and adhered them together for depth. This card uses a greeting from the Scripty Love stamp set by Gina K. Designs.


And finally, my favorite of the bunch. I can’t get over this greeting! It pairs so well with this floral guitar image. The colors I used are Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, and Peacock Feathers. I did spritz a little water onto the ink blending to give the card a little texture and interest. I die-cut the panel with a single stitched rectangle die, and layered several for dimension.


Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I like the tropical blooms in the jar just being white on the orange ombre background, makes it stand out. Those oxide inks are spectacular to work with!
