You are Amazing!!!



Have you ever seen a new technique that you just knew would be FABULOUS? That's how I felt when I laid eyes on this glorious gold glitter paper from Cut Card Stock...I thought hey-wouldn't it look amazing with the new Distress Oxide inks? Then when my Distress Oxide ink background was complete...I thought-Stardream metallic Antique gold...it is GORGEOUS!!!! Thanks for stopping by...Lee-Ann :)

**pan down as I have a Tutorial to share so that you can make this card for yourself...I will also add a recipe with all the products that I used...and click HERE to check out my blog Snappy Scraps


I first chose my products...Distress oxide inks, mini blenders, acetate, Distress water color card stock and Gold glitter paper...


I started by applying my chosen Distress Oxide inks with Mini Ink Blenders to the surface of the Water Color Card stock...it doesn't have to be perfectly blended...just get it on there...


Then spray your paper with a Distress Sprayer and use your heat gun to dry it...this causes the oxidation...

Now apply one of your ink colors to your acetate...then add water...then take this acetate and tap the ink over the surface of your background...this is called Smooshing...easy peasy. Spray your background with water droplets alternating drying with a heat gun...keep doing this back and forth until you get a background that you love...




Once you are happy with your background use a Rectangle die to cut your layer out using a Diecutting machine(I used a Sizzix Vagabond 'cause I'm lazy-lol)...after I had my Rectangle cut, I Ink blended the edges with Vintage photo Oxide ink


I chose to use Stardream Antique Gold Metallic Card stock as a card base-and for flower layers later in this tutorial...


I used a Scallop Rectangle die from Jaded Blossom to cut my Gold Glitter paper base layer...



I made another background using more green Oxide inks using the same technique as above minus the ink blended base...I just used the smooshing technique...


I cut leave dies from the green using Jaded Blossom Flower and Fall dies...



I then cut my Flower dies out of Stardream Metallic Antique gold card stock and I cut the Glitter flowers out of the center of my Glitter Scalloped Rectangle(why waste the paper-no one will know!!)


  Now that I have everything ready, I lay out all my stuff to see if it will all work for me...


I then thought all I'm missing is a frame in the center of my Oxide background to pull the eye...so I used my Rectangle dies from Jaded Blossom and cut myself a frame...


Now that I'm happy with the layout...I choose my sentiment...I chose "You are Amazing" from Jaded Blossom's Encouragement stamp set and placed it on my card mock up to choose the placement...


I then grabbed my handy dandy Misti stamping tool...I did this because stamping on Water color card stock can be tricky due to the texture...I used my EK success powder tool first, to avoid sticking and stamped my sentiment in Versamark ink...I then applied my Detail Gold embossing powder from Ranger and then melted it with my Marvy Heat gun...Now I stuck everything down using Cut Cardstock's Glue Tape runner...I did use foam tape to pop up my flowers and and some of my leaves for some dimension...come to think of it...I applied foam tape to my Oxide background too...


I then applied a few Cartwright's Moonshine sequins and lastly some Nuvo Bright Gold Crystal Drops...all done! YAY!!!

Here are a bunch of close ups...
