Can You Stamp Sentiments with Distress Oxide Inks?

Simon Says Stamp is celebrating Stamptember! So the challenge for Wednesday is to Stamp It using Simon Says Stamp exclusive products. Conveniently, I had the September Kit Club kit waiting to be used and had wanted to see how well Distress Oxide Inks stamp sentiments.
I used the stamp set that came with the kit to stamp lines of Happy Birthday in a rainbow of Distress Oxide Inks. 
I was shocked to see how clearly the Distress Oxide inks stamped the tiny detail sentiment strip! So the answer to the question is most certainly YES! And I will be using my Distress Inks for lots of stamping (sentiment and otherwise) in the future!
Check it out for yourself in this video:

Queen and Co Tag Shaped Shaker Kit

You must check out the latest Queen and Co Shaped Shaker Kit! It is a tag shaker kit and includes 3 dies and 9 foam shapes to create 9 tag shakers!
I used my shaker cards to make two totally different cards. A rainbow celebratory card that was filled with rainbow Toppings and a rainbow of Dots patterned paper.
I thought the round tags looked like Christmas ornaments. So I created two and hung them from twine and filled them with metallic toppings.
It's never too early to start making Christmas cards!
Check out this video where you can see the entire Tag Shaped Shaker kit AND how I put together these cards!

It is true that Distress Oxide Inks are amazing for blending and techniques, but did you know they are also fabulous for stamping! This card background was stamped with three different Distress Oxide Inks and look at the detail and vibrant colors!

Quick Stamp Layering and Masking

This week's Wednesday challenge on the Simon Says Stamp blog is ANYTHING GOES and a call to use Hero Arts products. Well, I just happen to love Hero Arts inks and stamps so I decided to to get a couple of cards done.
I've created a card with the Layering Flower For You stamp set before and loved how easy it was to layer these flower stamps. And I am NOT great at stamp layering! This set is pretty easy to line up and I love the look that they create.
I decided to use the coordinating dies and post it notes to create masks for the flowers so that I could create a dimensional look on this single layer card. If you would like to see how I created this card, please check out this video.

Fruit Shakers from Summer to Fall

I had so much fun making shaker cards with the Queen and Co Fruit Basket kit!
Combining the patterned papers with some bright cardstock and a lemon shaker made it easy to create a fun, summery card!
 But the kit doesn't stop at summer lovin'! You can easily create an apple shaped card that would be perfect for a teacher thank you!

 I love the sentiment stamp set that comes with the kit too. And the "Awesome to the Core"sentiment will be perfect for my kids' teachers!
Want to see all the supplies I used to create this card? Check them out below! Thanks so much for stopping by!

Distress Oxide Ink Layered Stamping on Kraft Cardstock

The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is to use Ranger products and Splatter It!
I used the Distress Oxide Inks to stamp on the Kraft cardstock and then I used Distress White Picket Fence ink to flick white splatters on top.
I filmed a short video to show how beautifully the Distress Oxide Inks stamp on Kraft and how easy it is to create white splatters with the Picket Fence Distress Ink. Check it out here:
