Playing with my new Oxide inks!

Har bursdag om ei uke og som vanlig er enhver anledning (Jul og Tilbake-på-skatten osv.) en kjempefin unnskyldning til å unne meg en masse nytt scrappestæsj ;) Bare se på mine flotte kosteligste skatter! Alle de nye Distress Oxide blekkputene fra Tim Holtz, andre blekkputer, embossingpulver, masse dies og stempler, blader med freebies og annet snop ♥ Elsker å gå gjennom nye ting og putte dem der du hører hjemme, organisere og lage etiketter, fargeprøver og putte ez-mount på de nye gummistemplene. *Lykkelig*

Congratulations & Mothers day

My birthday is next week and as usual I just have to take the chance to justify going wild with the visa and shop new goodies for myself ;) Up top is a photo of some of the stuff I got ♥ My preciouss! I have the best of times organizing, labeling, making color swatches, and ez-mounting n cutting the new rubbers!
And Oh, I LOVE the new Distress Oxide inkpads from Tim Holtz ~ so creamy and great to work with ♥ ♥ ♥

All my backgrounds has been made using the Oxides, with a smooshing and splatter technique. Below I have attempted to explain how you Dry emboss with diecuts, as it really helped me in coloring in the 'holes' in the butterfly diecut. But if you go to youtube and watch any of theese fab tutorials by Jennifer McGuire (goddess of scrapping!). You'll see how much you can be able to get out of the dies you have.
* Embossing With Dies 
* Embossed Impressions
* Faux Detailed Letterpress
* Dry Embossing With Die Cuts
and also Yana Smakula has this here video that I love on this technique,
* Embossing with dies. Stylish Happy Holidays Card

Such a cool way of using your dies! It's been years since I last did this, so I had to re-educate myself to make sure I didn't accidentally ruin any dies or the Big Shot. Now, there is a cheat sheet on the platform, but I like watching a technique before trying it, just in case ;)
