  1. Wonderful tips for creating your gorgeous cards! I love Distress Oxide ink and Distress inks, mostly use them for ink blending.
    Thanks for sharing…

  2. I LOVE the colors in these projects! And the Paper Rose dies are so beautiful! Would love to see a couple of those designs that aren’t stamps as such! Xo

  3. Wonderful assortment of cards Jessica. I’ve tried the ink blending, the ink smooshing, and the water lifting technique. They are so fun to use. Thanks for showing us these techniques.

  4. Wonderful tips, ideas and card fronts!! I’m a newbie to Distress Inks. I love the look of the blended colors. I may have to try out your fabulous ideas!

  5. Thanks for a great video! I’ve never seen the ink block technique before – cool effect!
    And so good to see an Aussie company!

  6. I love this series, Jess!! I especially loved your idea using the acrylic block. And the rainbow colors have my heart! So creative ❤️

  7. So far about all I’ve done with distress oxide inks is collect them. I have played some, but not very confident yet. When I can blend like these, I’ll start using them on cards. I’m inspired to play and practice by beautiful results like these. TFS!

  8. Loved this video! I recently received my first distress ink colors. I’m excited to give some of these technics a try. Thank you for sharing.

  9. Thank you for the new techniques. I wouldn’t be without my Distress Inks!! I have the mini ones but they get used A LOT!!

  10. Beautiful cards! I usually watercolor with the distress inks. I’d forgotten about the acrylic block technique! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Great selection of cards. I forgot about the inks on acrylic block, I haven’t done that in ages & it’s so much fun to do it. I must try this cardstock as you’re the second person to recommend it. I can’t get any worse.

  12. I use D I’s a lot, mostly for blended backgrounds. I love your awesome array of cards! The wheat grass card is phenomenal! Thanks for sharing your expertise with us!
