[Technique] Distress Oxides with DIY Stamp by Channin

Hello everyone! It’s Channin here with a new technique video to share with you all! This week I’m playing with a rainbow of Distress Oxides and combining them with a DIY stamp I created using the absolutely gorgeous Pretty Butterflies Dies. Check out the video below to get all the details.

[Technique] Distress Oxides with DIY Stamp by Channin

Watch below or on our YouTube channel.

First, I created my stamp by diecutting the largest butterfly from the Pretty Butterfly Die set from a scrap of craft foam. I then mounted the foam butterfly on a acrylic block using tape adhesive. Next I inked up the stamp with 6 different colors of Distress Oxides (Wilted Violet, Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Crack Pistachio, & Broken China) to create a rainbow on the stamp. I then spritzed the stamp with a fine mist of water then stamped it down on an A2 panel (4.25 x 5.5) of 110lb kraft paper and then immediately after on an A2 panel of 110lb white cardstock.

I then repeated the process several more times, however sometimes I did not stop at just 2nd generation stamping but continued on and did 3rd or 4th generation stamping. Once my panels were well covered I misted the entire kraft panel with a fine mist of water and set both panels to dry. Next, I created a dimensional butterfly embellishments using the same butterfly die from the Pretty Butterflies Die set.

I die cut 4 white butterflies and 3 kraft butterflies. I then adhered one white butterfly and one kraft butterfly onto a scrap of vellum. I then cut around the butterflies so that they had a vellum mat. I then glued two more white butterflies diecuts together and two kraft butterflies together and then adhered the stacked white ones under the vellum mat of the white butterfly embellishment and the stacked kraft ones on top of the vellum of the kraft butterfly embellishment.

Then to finish off the embellishments, I adhered the final white butterfly on the top of the white butterfly stack. With my butterfly embellishments finished, I stamped a sentiment from the Congrats Stamp Set on a strip of mint cardstock in Worn Lipstick and then stamped it again on a strip of kraft cardstock in embossing ink and then heat embossed it in white. Lastly, I adhered the stamped panels onto their corresponding A2 card bases (4.25 x 11), then adhered the dimensional butterfly accents, and then added the sentiments with foam tape. I hope you enjoyed!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
