Happiness is stamping with friends!


Hello … you make me smile!


Hi again!

When I collected my new Distress Oxide Inks at Mel’s Camp Papercraft in July … I couldn’t wait to try them out! This was my first attempt at blending! I think I overdid the colour a bit … but … boy … these babies blend like butter!! 😀


HINT: The Inks dry quickly and as they do … the overlap “softens” and seems to blend even more as it dries. So … you don’t actually have to work it too much. And … the blended section creates a new colour – a mix of the 2 that are blended giving a very satisfying result.

  • My Favorite Things – BG Whimsical Waves background
  • Word die & sentiment ??? — I think I may have borrowed one of Mel’s

Hope your day is special!

I finally caved and got some of the new Distress Oxide inks. The colours in the 2nd release were more to my taste … plus i got 4  from the 1st release! I am TOTALLY SOLD on these new inks! Yes! …. they blend “like butter” and are very forgiving. They react beautifully with water … they are great for stamping on dark card … and work well for heat embossing. I won’t be getting rid of my dye inks … but am LOVING using these new ones!

I had a lovely, lovely day at Camp Papercraft … and am eager to go again. I just hope it warms up a little … the weather in Robertson at this time of the year is a little chilly!
