How to create a fairy background with Distress Oxide and So Suzy Stamps

Fairy Background with Distress Oxide and So Suzy Stamps

Yay, I’m up over at the So Suzy Stamps blog again. Have you seen these cute little tea cup fairies over at So Suzy Stamps? They are back and they deserved an appropriate fairy background with Distress Oxide and Distress Ink. I just love the combination of the Distress Inks and Oxides, they always turn out insanely pretty. In addition, I found some Perfect Pearls in one of my drawers and added some fairy sparkle at the end. But see for yourself how easy yet beautiful this technique is: Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my…

Arrrr, you land lovers! It’s inspiration day over at So Suzy Stamps and I grabbed one of the stamps that is back in the store – the pirate 😀 You probably know by now that I love the Distress Oxide, but what I love even more is the combination of Distress Ink and Oxide. It’s the mix of vibrancy and rusty that really gets me 😛 That’s why I created a set of cards for you using both, Distress Inks and Oxides, water and some acetate. Enjoy! I hope you enjoyed my cards and are not mad that I didn’t…

So Suzy Stamps with Jane Davenport water colors

Happy Mother’s Day everyone. I bet we are all mothers of some sort, for example I’m the mother of a little fur bay, the mother of dragons (I have gazillion plush dragons) and mother of my own ideas (yikes, cheesy… LOL). For this special occasion I had to create something with flowers and such. I love watching all these videos were someone is heat embossing a floral background and then water coloring it. If you follow The Ton you have definitely seen it. I don’t have a floral background stamp, so I made my own (and will never do it…

So Suzy Stamps art journal page made with Distress Oxide and a little imagination

Oooooh, I had a little fun with Distress Oxide and So Suzy Stamps this weekend. I was in a play mood and came up with this colorful Spring page. After I picked up the Distress Oxides in my local craft store, I just had to break them open and create some beautiful backgrounds. I smooshed the ink onto my craft mat, spritzed some water on top and then dragged several tags through it. After they were dry, I repeated these steps till I had the texture I wanted. When I was done with the tags, I spotted my art journal…

Video: Snarky Anti-Valentine’s Card with So Suzy Stamps

Anti Valentines Card with So Suzy Stamps, Distress Inks and Distress Oxide

Happy Valentine’s Day! Are you celebrating or do you think that it is one of those unnecessary days? Fair warning upfront: I’m not huge on Valentine’s day, so I decided to create a rather snarky anti-valentine’s card. I found a great sentiment at So Suzy Stamps that fit to my “love” for Valentine’s day, so I grabbed my masking paper and Distress Inks and started blending some ink. A video might be nicer for you to see the process, so I created one vs writing a long love letter 😉 Again, I understand that not everyone shares my humor. I…
