Video: Distress Oxide Lilac Background

Hello all! I'm baaaack with a new video!  It's been awhile, I'm so sorry!  Been broadsided with a few things last few weeks that were making it so so hard for me to create and turn the camera back on! I really missed it though and am looking forward to the ones to come!  Today I have a card I made when my set Stately Flowers 12 set first came, using a couple Distress Oxide ink pads to create this glowing distressed floral background in no time! Greeting and  hearts are from the current Incentive set You Get Me.  Also a peek of a new product coming this week to Gina K. Designs, the Tidy Towel! Please enjoy!

Pardon me for getting a little flustered at the end: I usually ask you to tell me *which* card you like better, but I looked down at my cards and noticed they were the same lol!  I guess because, no coffee this morning, it wasn't until I turned off the a camera that I realized I forgot to turn the layout sideways and change it up for another option! Doh!  That ever happen to you? (You can totally picture it though, right?  Just turn the card and greeting!)  I'll be back on my game next week, I promise! (Or try harder, at least!)

So like I said, coming this Thursday to Gina K. Designs: The Tidy Towel is a lint free towel that measures approximately 6" X 8". The color is called slate and when wet, it turns black. It can be used with just water or you can add a little stamp cleaner when necessary. The Tidy Towel is packaged damp and can be stored damp however, if it is left out and gets completely hard, it will reactivate by soaking it in water for a few minutes. 



  1. Pretty cards, Mel! Love the colors! You inspired me to make that butterfly lace on my envie! Thanks for the shout out! xo~

  2. I always like your cards and look forward to your videos. This new wreath set is wonderful. The ideas are already starting to flood in.

  3. Love your stamps but the States are irrelevant to Australia..your flowers are so beautiful.

  4. I love your cards and always learning something new!!!

  5. I'm such a fan of the Distress Oxide inks. Pretty backgrounds!

  6. I've finally started playing with this set, and am having trouble getting the calendar rows straight, even with the grid on my misti. Takes me FOREVER! LOL If you could do a video with tips on how to do it quickly and well I'd sure appreciate it! Makes it hard to want to do more cards later...should I decide to. LOVE it...but maybe I'm to picky about it being straight...I don't know. LOL


Your generous feedback helps make my work and this blog better! Thanks for inspiring and motivating me! :)
