Creativation 2020- Distress Embossing Glaze with Ranger Ink


Happy Friday, crafty friends! Today I am sharing a card project that I made for the 2020 Ranger Ink Creativation booth featuring the new Tim Holtz Distress Embossing Glaze.


If you’re not familiar yet with the Distress Embossing Glaze, they are translucent embossing powders in the Distress line of colors. Because they are translucent, instead of opaque like many powders on the market, these new Glaze powders are perfect for layering and building up texture on your projects. I used two of the twelve colors released for Creativation for this card, Fossilized Amber and Peeled Paint. And those are the adorable new Bunny Hop rabbits from the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 1 release.


I mentioned that the Glaze works wonderfully for building up layers, and you can see some of that here on this card. To begin the background, I started with Distress watercolor cardstock, and stamped a floral image from the Vines & Roses Stamper’s Anonymous set in clear embossing ink, which was then heat set with clear embossing powder. The panel was lightly inked with Distress and then swiped with an embossing ink pad all around the edges, leaving a roughly oval opening in the center. Peeled Paint Distress Embossing Glaze was added and melted. I then went around the the edge again with the embossing ink pad and added a second coat of Peeled Paint Glaze to add that extra darkness you see around the edges. I added water droplets to the center of the panel next using a Distress Sprayer, and then added Fossilized Amber Glaze to that.


I love that even with all those layers, you can still see the patterns and detailing underneath. And I can’t wait to play more with those rabbits!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Any fun weekend plans?
