Distress® Never Too Much Happy Card Beauty

Hi there crafty friends, it’s Cheiron Brandon and today I have a fun card tutorial using Distress Embossing Glazes. If you haven’t tried the glazes out yet, they are a translucent embossing powder that you can use in many ways. On my card today, I will show you how I used them to create a fun background (with Distress Crackle Texture Paste) and direct to paper with an Embossing Dabber for a happy card.

Distress® Never Too Much Happy Card Supplies

Gather your supplies. You will need Distress Mixed Media Heavy Stock, Distress Crackle Texture Paste, a Distress Embossing Dabbler, Bubble Stencil, a palette knife and Sizzix Happy Hour dies. 

Distress® Never Too Much Happy Card Step 1

Step 1: Create a background by adding Frayed Burlap ink to your Craft Sheet. Spray with water and swipe your paper through. Use a Heat Tool to dry, add a few more layers if desired by tapping your paper into the remaining ink. Let dry.

Step 2: Place the bubbles stencil on top of your panel and use a palette knife to apply Distress Crackle Texture Paste. Lift the stencil and wash immediately or place into water until you can wash.
