Hello my crafty friends and welcome back to my cardmaking blog. Today I’m excited to share a new video series I have started, Distress Oxides Color Combos and Cards. Each Sunday (hopefully), I will share one or two color combos and then I’ll make a card(s) with them, start to finish. Read on to watch the video and download the FREE PDF file for these quick and easy cards.
I’m also Sharing New products from the Simon Says Stamp “Love You More” release and see the end of this post for a chance at some BLOG Candy
To start us off, it’s pinks and purples with Spun Sugar, Milled Lavender and Seedless Preserves. I love this color combo, it’s warm, springy, reminds me of summer, love, weddings, happy occasions. From this we are going to make two cards.
Here is the video for today’s Distress Oxides Color Combos and Cards you can watch it CLICK HERE on my blog, or in HD over on my Youtube Channel – Don’t forget to subscribe so you get notified every time I load a new video.
As you see in the video, once the blending was finished, I heat embossed the New Simon Says Stamp Heart to Heart Background stamp onto the art piece and then die cut out a heart from the center using the SSS Nested Hearts Dies….that way I could make two cards from one art piece!
I attached the piece to a A2 White card base and put it back into my Misti Stamping Tool to stamp the sentiment in the center of the heart cut out.
Then I added the second sentiment which is cut from the SSS CZ Designs Sentiment Strips included in the SSS Love you More Release. These are all pre-printed, all you do is cut them apart and attach them to your cards. SO MUCH quicker than heat embossing sentiments onto black card stock, LOL
I wanted my embellishments to match perfectly, so I blended more Seedless Preserves onto a scrap of white card stock and used the small hearts in the Nested Hearts set to die cut out a few more.
For the second card in today’s Distress Oxides Combos and Cards, I uses the cut out heart. To add some interest to the background I embossed it with the new Memory Box Pin Point Leaf Plate before matting it in SSS Smoke card stock and then the White A2 card base.
Across the heart I added the word “LOVE”, which is another NEW Memory Box die: Love Airy Script. I die cut it 3 times, stacked it and then brushed it with the Seedless Preserves ink as well so that it matched perfectly.
The addition of the second sentiment in black really grounds the card and the added hearts pulls the colors together.
