Tim Holtz Oxide Inks Review, and project share! Girly, and Masculine!!

Thank you for stopping by!
Today I am sharing some mixed media cards I have recently made with my new collection of
Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks.

The recipe for these cards is:
 Cricut Explore Air 2, Distress Inks, Distress Oxides, Distress Crayons, Sennelier Watercolors, Prismacolor pencils, Santoro London Gorguss Girl stamps: You Brought Me love, and On Top of the World (buttons), Stampers Anonymous Hipster stamps CMS288, Canson Mixed Media 98lb paper, Recollections Washi tape and 110lb card stock, Neenah Creative Collection Premium Extra-heavy A2 Cards, Simplicity cord, sewing machine, Ali Express Dies, Spellbinders dies, rub-ons, patience & love!


For this adorable Gorguss girl, heart, and surrounding scene I used Sennelier watercolors, Prismacolor Pencils, Distress ink and Oxide inks. The sentiment was written on the heart with the Cricut Explore Air 2 after being fussy cut, and I finished it with the buttons and cord.


 I used my Cricut Explore Air2 to cut the intricate lace borders, the sentiment insert, small flowers, and the water-can scene complete with snail and grass!
To make the entire card shabby, I distressed all edges, and used inks on all borders, as well as Distress Crayons.

For this little delicate card, I used Oxide inks in three colors, then splattered water to combine for a soft watercolor-like effect.
I added delicate white borders from Ali Express, a white flower cut with my Cricut Explore Air 2, and finished it with the Thank you sentiment and sequins.



For these cards I began with a black Neenah Card base, added washi tape, rub-ons, and Distress Oxide inks on top of Distress inks, The Hipster CMS collection for Stampers Anonymous is complete with sentiments such as "Yeah", and "Sweet" used here, I masked the images after stamping them onto Recollections cardstock. They were so much fun to make!!

Cricut Explore Air 2 Floral Thank You Card

Please enjoy this video, I apologize in advance for the abrupt editing, and I appreciate your feedback. I also should have mentioned that I used the fast-cut feature for some of the die cutting, and made this card very quickly. Overall, I am very pleased! Be blessed!

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.
