Alex Syberia Designs "Sunkissed Memories" June Release Blog Hop and Giveaway

Welcome to the Alex Syberia Designs Blog Hop! If you just happened onto my blog you can start the full hop and see all the details on the ASD Release Blog Hop Post and you can shop all the new supplies at the ASD shop.

I love the layered stamps in the Chrysanthemum Stamp Set and how well it pairs with the Tiny Dots Stencil. The beautiful script "smile" is from the Garden Tweets die set.

For this card I used the Meadow Magic Cover Die for a subtle background and the Sunkissed Memories Stamp Set and the Summer Bliss die set looks amazing in gold mirror cardstock!

Now onto the hop and giveaway!

Alex Syberia Designs is giving away two £15 gift cards to the ASD store and one full release bundle, valued at £400 ($495) in total.

Distress Paint Techniques with Colors from the Vault!

Have you seen that Ranger Ink has opened the vault and re-released some colors of Distress Paint that were discontinued?

Today I am sharing ways to organize, label, swatch and USE Distress Paints in cardmaking.

I recently watched Tim Holtz's live on these re-released colors and he shared a bunch of fun techniques that I wanted to try with my favorite colors!

So today I created a bunch of card backgrounds with different techniques using the ability to react the Distress Paint with water while it is wet and use it as a permanent color when dry.

I also added a few of my own ideas like adding Lunar Paste!

And of course I share some ways to turn those backgrounds into cards!

So check out today's video to see a bunch of Distress Paint techniques and cards!

You can see the re-released paints and everything I used down below! Thanks for stopping by!
