Doodling with Debby: Quick & Easy Distress Oxide Background

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Thanks for stopping by! I’m so happy to share the latest Doodling with Debby Feature! Please read on and enjoy!

Debby's DoodlesHi It’s Debby here and I’m delighted to be joining you with this month’s Doodle With Debby feature. Today I have a video playing with a couple of new products to me – the Distress Oxide inks from Tim Holtz and the Nuvo Jewel Drops. I’m pairing them with one of my favorite stamps, the Leaves Background, and the Big U dies and matching Big U words stamp set.

Doodling with Debby: Quick & Easy Distress Oxide BackgroundI started this card with a piece of Neenah Solar White card and stamped the Leaves Background in clear embossing ink before sprinkling with clear embossing powder and heat setting. I then blended Cracked Pistachio, Broken China, and Fossilzed Amber Distress Oxide inks over the card, letting the heat embossed leaves resist the ink. I must say how gorgeously these Distress Oxide inks blend! So smooth and create lovely new colors where the areas of each ink overlapped.

Doodling with Debby: Quick & Easy Distress Oxide BackgroundI spritz and splattered the background with water and lifted some of the wet ink with a paper towel to give variation and interest. In addition, I can’t leave an inky background as done until I splattered with a shimmery solution of Perfect Pearls. With the background now complete I cut the panel with a Stitched Rectangle and put it to one side while I worked on the sentiment.

I wanted to keep the rest of the card clean and simple so as not to cover up or compete with the pretty background. I cut one of the YOU dies from the Big U die set from white card and paired it with a sentiment from the Big U Words stamp set. I stamped the sentiment in clear embossing ink and then embossed with white embossing powder before trimming to a skinny strip. I mounted all the elements on the panel foam adhesive and then accented around the sentiment area with toning colors of Nuvo Jewel Drops; Limoncello, Sea Breeze and Key Lime. Finally I mounted the panel on a side folding Audrey Blue card base.

Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you for next month’s Doodle With Debby feature.

Serenity: Color Coordinates with Shari Carroll

color-coordinates-2017

Ocean breeze… walks on the beach.. day in the spa… this is Serenity! I’d like my house painted in all of these colors, they are so peaceful!! I’ve picked out colors that are all muted in nature, some slightly darker, some lighter. I’ve included three NEW colors Seafoam, Dusty Sage and Winter Sky. Aren’t they amazing?

Color Coordinates, Serenity, Shari Carroll

Even though there are blue and greens, this combination is gender neutral. I’ve created my card using the Dina Wakeley Circle Patterns stamps because they went so well with my beachy theme and show off the ink colors. The die cut Wildflowers are what make this a feminine card. I would make a card like this in batches and add messages later for events or occasions.

I’ve filmed a video with the process to create this card. You can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
