New Mini Distress Sets

Published by at 6:57 am under Uncategorized

Hello! 🙂  I’m so excited because today, Ranger Ink is releasing 3 more mini distress ink kits!  And guess what!  I have a set of them to give away today!  Look how beautiful kits 7, 8, and 9 are! 🙂

I made this simple card using the mini distress inks with a fun technique perfect for mini ink pads.

I loooooove Tim’s Distress Damask Background stamps.  I took the Weathered Wood Mini Distress pad and inked only portions of the stamp.

Next, I took the Tumbled Glass Mini Distress Ink and added it to other portions of the stamp.

Then I took the Stormy Sky Mini Distress Ink pad and covered the rest of the stamp where there was no ink.

I stamped it on some white cardstock.  Look how fun the different blues inks blend together.

I repeated that process and stamped again.

Keep repeating that step until you have the whole cardstock covered.  (but don’t worry about the middle too much since it will be covered by the greeting)

I used the Frayed Burlap from one of the kits and inked up my Mini Ink Blending tool… Did I tell you how much I love this tool?  I reach for this size more often than not! 🙂

I distressed the  edges of the cardstock.

I repeated the same technique onto the greeting stamp, using the same three colors and stamping it on white cardstock.

I applied Perfect Pearls onto the greeting.  I love that distress inks stay wet longer, so the perfect Pearls have time to adhere to the ink.

It’s hard to capture the beautiful shimmer it has.  But, I love that extra little “bling”. 🙂

I then applied frayed burlap distress ink to the edges and used black cardstock to mat my images.

And below is the finished card. 🙂

Please leave a comment and I will select a random winner.  Can’t wait to send these to someone! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!
