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. Very lovely card, beautiful soft colorful background. The vellum heart behind the sentiment was the perfect touch.
    Thanks for the video, Kristina.

  2. Oooh, wonderful! This is the first time I’ve seen the sprays in action – another product to add to my list!

  3. Gorgeous background created with the Oxide Ink Sprays. Love how the colors blended to create a rainbow! The heart vellum behind the sentiment is perfect!

  4. I love your card! The background is beautiful- the vellum and the white card stock and sentiment really pop!

  5. These are such beautiful dies and the Oxide sprays are so pretty. A beautiful card Kristina, very nice indeed.

  6. When you started to add the sentiment, I knew it needed something. I doubt I would have thought of vellum, but it was the perfect addition. Thanks for sharing and teaching me new things!

  7. Love the color combination you’ve used to create the background…perfect for your white die cuts. Like how using the vellum for the heart lets more of the color show through. tfs

  8. WONDERFUL card and tutorial!
    LOVE your inky rainbow background … I REALLY REALLY REALLY need to try these distress oxide inks!
