DIY Custom Blend Distress Oxide Ink Pad (January 2019 Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp)

NOTE: This post is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp.

Hello, all! Today I have a card and video featuring the January 2019 Card Kit! I created my own custom Distress Oxide ink pad and colored a cute snowman from the Snow Much stamp set. :)

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

The first thing I did was add ink to the Distress Oxide Custom Blend (empty) ink pad that’s included in the kit. I choose three colors of Distress Oxide Ink that I already had in my stash (the re-inkers are not included in the kit): Dried Marigold, Seedless Preserves, and Chipped Sapphire. After applying the ink to the pad, I swiped the ink pad over the lid of the pad so that I’ll know in the future what colors I used. NOTE: I don’t show this step in the video, but you can see the lid of the ink pad in the photo above.

I swiped the ink pad across the front of my card base, and then sprinkled some water over the area for added texture. The Distress Oxide ink reacts with the water!

Then I stamped one of the snowman from the Snow Much stamp set in Intense Black ink and colored him with coordinating colors of Copic markers. I cut out the snowman and left a slight margin around the shape.

Using a MISTI, I stamped the greeting and snowflakes in VersaMark ink and applied white heat embossing powder. I then adhered the snowman using foam squares.

I hope you enjoy the video! Thanks for stopping by! You can get the January 2019 Card Kit on it’s own, or you can subscribe to receive this kit and future kits.
