Mother’s Day Card – Distress Oxide Blending

So this card is one of my favorite cards. I love the colours, the design and the layout. I know, Mother’s day is long gone, but hey, you can use this design for anything.

The main products used are the Altenew Stencil and Sketchy Floral Stamp. I utilize vibrant colours with my distress oxide inks for blending giving me a beautiful scape.

Products Used

  • Altenew Stencil
  • Altenew Sketchy Floral Stamp
  • Simon Says Stamp Window Frames (sentiments only)
  • Simon Says Stamp Trio Window Die
  • Distress Oxide Ink – Tattered Rose – Shaded Lilac – Worn Lipstick – Old Paper – Squeezed Lemon – Stormy Sky
  • Heffy Doodle – Classic Sentiments
  • Versafine Onyx Black Ink

The Card

First, I lined up my floral stamp where I wanted it on my panel. Then I put my stencil on top and lined it up to the stamp and marked where the stencil lines up on the card. This is so I can remove and reposition the stencil after I take away the stamp. I placed the stencil back onto the panel where I had made my marks, and took my oxide inks and blended them anywhere and everywhere within my stencil.

I take the stamp, line it up over my blended area, and stamp the Sketchy Floral in Versafine Onyx Black. I love this ink, as I get a nice crisp impression. Then I leave my stamp on my positioner and stamp another panel in tattered rose. Tattered Rose, distress oxide ink is one of my faves. It’s so soft and beautiful – I was looking at buying a re-inker a week after I got his ink pad.

Now, I’ll take my Simon Says Stamp Trio Window Die and place it where I want it on the panel with the stamp in tattered rose.

I’ll skip over talking about cutting up my sentiment stamps – you can watch it in my youtube video.

I add my sentiment squares to my main panel, lining the stamp on the stamp on the squares to the stamp on my ink-blended panel. I used 2 sentiments from Simon Says Stamp Window Frames stamp set and the “mother’s day” sentiment from Heffy Doodle – Classic Sentiments.

And that’s it! It’s a beautiful card with a lot of, as Jennifer Mcguire likes to say, interest! 😁
