Welcome back Crafty Friends, today I’m sharing A NEW VIDEO – Distress Oxide Christmas Cards. I did a whopping 5 cards for you today – hope you like them.

This is my third post for the month over at Scrap ‘N Stamp and our Theme for the month has been Distress Oxide Inks so it fit perfectly. With Christmas sneaking up on us, I thought why not make them into some funky and fun Christmas cards – so here you go!.
I was playing with Distress Oxide Inks and Nuvo Shimmer Powders making some fun backgrounds the other day and turned the video camera on so I could share them with you. I won’t go into much details as I do that on the video. For this card I also used the Penny Black Leaf Stitched Frames Die and the snowflakes are from My Favorite things – Layered Snowflakes Dies.
In the video I show you how on some of the backgrounds I did a second layer of Nuvo Shimmer Powders. I also used them to paint the “JOY” sentiments, once I had cut them three times and layered together.
I also stenciled the backgrounds, this one is from Tonic Studios and I used the Life Changing Brushes to add a bit of blue and green ink to create the design. The sentiment on this card is from My Favorite Things – Birdie Brown – Greetings Galore.
I also changed up the colors a bit for a blue/purple and pink one.
and finally a yellow, blue, green and purple one.
As you can see I had a boatload of fun creating these 5 cards and I walk you through all the steps in the video below.
