Gerda Steiner Designs Lucky Duck & Distress Ink Background

Happy Hello and welcome to Friday! I have a card to share today that I created for 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store and a process video.

Have you SEEN there are new Distress Ink Oxides coming out!? Twelve new gorgeous, bright colors and I can’t wait! Best part  — you can PREORDER them from the store now so don’t wait! I love the Oxide inks! They blend so well together and give such cool effects.

I’m using some colors from the original batch for my background today. I blended Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Faded Denim onto Neenah White Solar Cardstock and spritzed some water on it for the splotchy effect. Then, I cut my frames from it using my Single Stitched Rounded Rectangle die from MFT. 

For the little duck, I stamped two but actually only ended up using one. This is from the Lucky Duck set from Gerda Steiner Designs which can also be purchased through 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store. I stamped it with my Misti tool onto Neenah White Solar Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink which is a copic friendly ink.

I colored my duck up with my copic markers and cut it out my Scan N Cut Machine.  Using my Misti tool again, I lined up my sentiment and stamp in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto my middle layer. I adhered my card together with my Scotch Advanced Tap Glider and Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive. 

To finish off  the card I added some sequins from Neat & Tangled Mermaid Tail Collection and Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops.

Happy Hello and welcome to another Wonderful Wednesday Challenge!! As always … it’s ANYTHING goes so break out your Kraftin Kimmie Stamps and get krafty! Be sure to check out the Kraftin Kimmie blog for your chance to win some free stamps! 

These critters are just the cutest!! I used the Beach Blanket Bingo set for my card along with some stenciling for the background.

To start off with, I colored up this fun kitty with my copics and cut it out with my Scan n Cut machine. For my background, I stenciled the flower print onto some cardstock and trimmed it down so it was just a strip. I added that to my cardbase, stamped my sentiment and added my kitty with some foam squares. To finish it up, I added some of the gorgeous Nuvo Crystal Morning Dew drops.
