All the Good Things Distinktive Stamp


You may remember me posting a while ago about all of the new DistINKtive Stamps in the new catalogue. If you missed it, you can READ IT HERE. I showed pictures of each of the different stamps. You’ll notice that they have a unique name ‘DistINKtive’ – that’s because they are made in a unique, distinctive design. This type of stamp picks up & lays down the ink in different gradations, allowing for a photo-like quality to the image. Today I’m sharing with you the All the Good Things DistINKtive stamp – with the gorgeous Koi fish image.


This is my first try with this stamp, so I only used 1 colour ink for the koi fish. Next time, I’m going to try 2 colours!

Keeping the embellishments to a minimum lets the image take centre stage!


Cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock. Use an Aqua Painter to pick up ink from the lid of the Pool Party ink pad, and add a wash of ink to the cardstock. To add more depth, repeat with the Balmy Blue ink.

Once the cardstock is dry, you’re ready to stamp your image. Mask off the sentiment portion of the large koi image stamp from the All the Good Things stamp set. Ink up the fish with Mango Melody ink, and stamp onto your watercolour wash panel. Stamp the separate sentiment from the same set, with Cajun Craze ink.

This picture below shows the detail of the image.

With the Big Shot, emboss a panel of Pool Party and another panel of Cajun Craze cardstock with the Seaside Embossing Folder. Attach the Pool Party panel to the Mango Melody card base with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Next, attach the Cajun Craze and stamped panels on top, with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Finish off your card front by adding a couple of the Share What You Love Artisan Pearls in the upper left corner of the Cajun Craze panel.

You can see in the picture above that I alternated the embossed panels; the Pool Party shows the debossed side; the Cajun Craze shows the embossed (raised) side.

I've always liked to create things, but I'm not a great artist, or sculptor, or any type of 'traditional' artist - but I love to create! I love the satisfaction of a completed project. Whether a card, painting or other project - as long as it can create a smile, evoke a feeling, or some type of reaction in the recipient. I hope you will enjoy sharing my creations, and occasional ramblings; I'd enjoy having you create with me! :)

    1. It’s a beautiful koi image, isn’t it Susan? Glad you like my card! Next time I’m going to try sponging on a darker orange as well as the lighter one.

    1. Oh, you’ll love this set, Buffy! I can’t wait to play more with the colours and adding different shading.

I love to read what you have to say! Thanks for commenting ;)
