Distress Oxide Sprays Background + Die Cuts

Distress Oxide Spray Background + Die Cuts

Hi all! Kristina Werner here. Today I have a fun card made using the new Distress Oxides Sprays from Tim Holtz and Ranger, plus some die cutting using dies from Simon Says Stamp.

I started out by placing a piece of Strathmore cold press watercolor paper inside an open box. I use sprays inside a box to help keep my work area clean. To create a colorful background, I used three Distress Oxide Sprays in Fossilized Amber, Picked Raspberry, and Mermaid Lagoon. I worked in layers and then dried the piece with a heat tool (you could also let it air dry).

To add even more interesting areas to the background, I lightly sprinkled water and sprayed water onto the background. Then I sopped up the water using a paper towel. This left behind “water spots.”

For the main design of the card, I used the Outline Floral Frame die and the You’re Doing Awesome die. I cut both out of white cardstock. The large die cut frame was adhered to the watercolor piece using Gina K Connect Glue.

I also cut out a large vellum heart using the Nested Hearts dies. I adhered the greeting die cut to the vellum heart, and then onto the card using thin foam adhesive that I cut into tiny pieces to fit behind the greeting die cut.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoy the card video. :)

  1. Awesome card Kristina, love the stunning background.
    What a differece it makes if you put the sentiment right on to the background or first on the vellum heart. That was a great tip for me.
