Distress Oxide Ink Blending + White Embossing

Ever since I first used a Distress Oxide Ink, I was hooked. The blending is amazing, and the finished look is so smooth and suede-like to the touch. Absolutely beautiful!

I heat embossed with GKD White Embossing Powder on all of these cards. The white really pops on the soft ink blending! KEEP IN MIND- Distress Oxide Ink takes a little while to dry. Make sure that it is completely dry before you  heat emboss over it. (Yes, I learned the hard way. My card looked like it had it’s own personal snowfall. )

All of the stamped images are from the stamp sets You Have My Heart and Tropical Blooms from the Gina K. Designs Hearts & Flowers StampTV Kit.


For this card I used Worn Lipstick , Abandoned Coral, and Picked Raspberry. I masked off a frame, keeping the blending on the inside without having to create another layer of card stock. I cut the hearts out of Heavy Base Weight White card stock, and layered a few together for some dimension. I did add some Deco-Foil Foam Adhesive for just a tad more dimension. This product is the BEST. It is really easy to die-cut, and gives subtle dimension on its own, or even more dimension when combined with die-cut layers of card stock.


For this card I used Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, and Abandoned Coral. Instead of masking off a frame like on the last card, I die-cut several large frames and adhered them together for depth. This card uses a greeting from the Scripty Love stamp set by Gina K. Designs.


And finally, my favorite of the bunch. I can’t get over this greeting! It pairs so well with this floral guitar image. The colors I used are Twisted Citron, Cracked Pistachio, and Peacock Feathers. I did spritz a little water onto the ink blending to give the card a little texture and interest. I die-cut the panel with a single stitched rectangle die, and layered several for dimension.


Thanks for stopping by!



  1. I like the tropical blooms in the jar just being white on the orange ombre background, makes it stand out. Those oxide inks are spectacular to work with!

    1. I love these particular cards with the white embossing on the Distress Oxide ink shading. Are the stamps you used still available? If so, what are they? That flower guitar is really nice and so are the flowers in the jar and the three hearts. Thanks

    1. Hi Janice! You could absolutely do a similar look with Distress Oxide! I wanted to try that too, but I ran out of time. For Oxide, try Blueprint Sketch, Picked Raspberry, Seedless Preserves, and a little Black Soot. 🙂
