Summer Distress Inks + Giveaway!

Hello.

I am happy girl whenever I get new Distress Inks. Very happy. I immediately put the Summer Distress Inks to good use, but then got busy with the baby and didn’t get a chance to post it. But better late then never…

Welcome to the new Summer Distress Inks. Bright. Cheery. Happy. Perfect for those of us who like non-distress-like colors but like the Distress Ink properties. The three new colors are Mowed Lawn (the perfect grass green), Picked Raspberry (the perfect hot-ish pink) and Salty Ocean (the perfect true blue). These colors are “true” colors – the perfect green, pink and blue. Definitely filled a missing spot in the Distress Ink palette!

So I put them to good use the same way I did the Spring Distress Inks a couple months back (HERE). I white heat embossed my favorite background stamp on watercolor paper and rubbed the inks directly over it in three big stripes. I then sprayed it verrrrry generously with a Perfect Pearls + water mix and let it blend and dry on it’s own. Love how the pink and blue blended to make a gorgeous purple, too…

Lovin’ THIS new Studio Calico greeting. (The whole set rocks.) And I punched cardstock hearts with my favorite heart border punch and covered them with Black Enamel for dimension and shine…

Fun. Simple. Ready for the mail. Ready to brighten someone’s day.

By the way, THIS is the stamp set I used. In love.

I will be back soon with another bold card I made with these great new inks. See you then.


 I was able to get my hands on an extra set of these Summer Distress Inks to give to a lucky winner. Leave a comment here by Friday night at 11:59pmEST for your chance.

(And the winner of the Simon Says Stamp die was Tania – I emailed you.)

    I love this card, Jennifer. The colors blend so beautifully…that’s one of the things I like about distress inks. I do want to try the black enamel because I love the shine it gave to those hearts.

    Those summer ink colors look like a lot of fun!

    Thanks for the inspiration, and congratulations on your beautiful baby girl!
