Distress Oxide Blended Star Slimline Card | Altenew Halftone Stars

Updated: Sep 14


Hello everyone, Thank you so much for stopping by for this week's card!! I am so excited to share this Distress Oxide ink blended card with you, so let's jump right in!!


To start I always cut down my panels, in this case of a slimline card I end up eyeballing the size a bit and tried for a 1/4 inch smaller than my card base which is 7 by 8.5 inches, 3.5 inches when scored and folded. I cut the panel out of some 80 lb Neenah solar white cardstock and the base out of some 100lb black cardstock.


I then took my panel and blended on Distress oxides in the colours Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, Peacock Feathers, Cracked Pistachio, and squeezed lemonade in random sections on my panel, a perfect blend doesn't matter because we are going to cover the whole panel in Black Soot later.


Once my Oxide inks were dry, I used a stamping platform and stamped out all the Stars in the Halftone Stars stamp set by Altwnew and clear heat embossed them with Icicle Embossing Powder by Brutus Monroe. Once everything was smooth and melted I let the panel cool down for a minute then took my Black Soot Distress ink pad and smeared it all over the coloured panel. Once I was happy with the coverage on my panel I used a microfiber cloth to buff off the ink on top of my embossed areas.


I wish I had embossed more stars on to the background but at this point, I couldn't add any more so I chose to flick on some white Gouache and Liquid pixie dust splatter filling in some of the bare areas.

I also cut a white panel for the inside of the card and using the same Oxide inks stamped the Halftone Stars on that panel. I then glued the white panel into the black card base and the embossed panel to the front of the card.


When it came to the sentiment I really struggled but in the end, I added some gold Thickers as they matched the gold spatter from the Liquid Pixie Dust and were bold enough to hold their own on the card front.


Thank you so much for checking out my card!! I have a step by step video below this post and a full supplies list below that. I will see you again soon!!!
