Oxide Ink Easter Egg Cards

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! Thanks for stopping by the blog today! With the Easter holiday right around the corner, we’re re-sharing these clever cards by special guest designer Heather Ruwe a few years ago. She did some very cool and clever outside-of-the-box thinking using oxide inks! Be sure to read on to learn how to create this cool concept for yourself and enjoy!

Hello and welcome. I’ve been having so much fun playing with  Distress Oxide Inks.  I’ve been experimenting and creating many backgrounds. The finished look reminded me of  Easter eggs after they have been color dyed, which inspired these cards…

I applied the ink to a craft sheet and then sprayed with water. I swiped a piece of watercolor cardstock through the ink and dried it with my heat gun, spraying with water as it dries.

I wanted to make an egg shaped card but didn’t have a large egg die, so I used the largest balloon of the Simon Says Stamp’s balloon die set. After die-cutting the backgrounds, I trimmed off the end piece off the bottom of the balloon and turned it upside down, creating an egg shape! 

I white heat embossed a sentiment from the Easter Greetings stamp set on to a strip of black cardstock cut with the stitched banner die. I also die-cut some hearts and dry embossed them with an embossing folder. I finished the cards with a sprinkling of clear sequins.

I hope this inspires you to think outside of the box and look at your dies differently. Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome day.
