Bugs & Kisses

Hello everyone!

I'm here with a colourful card for the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog and don't know about you but I am getting a little bit tired of seeing white snow everywhere around me!  So I thought I would do a card with lots of bright colours.

This is a 4bar size card base and I used distress inks for the background.  I took the edge of a scrap piece of card stock and pushed the ink off the card stock on to the base overlapping the colours.  I stamped the sentiment and lady bugs with black ink and watercolored them with distress ink as well.

Be sure to pop over to the the Butterfly Reflections Ink shop as there are awesome goodies Vanessa adds every day!  Also stay tuned for a couple more spring releases that are on the way!!!

Hello...Happy Birthday!

Hello everyone!  Coralynn here with a shaker card for you today.

I am in love with the WPlus9 release and I have to say that the Sunshine layers dies have to be my all-time FAVOURITE!   I've been using it like crazy!

Now, let's get to the card.  I used the Sunshine Layers scalloped edge die to cut out the panel as well as a circle die to make the opening for the shaker.  I stamped the heart shaped talk bubble and the Hello sentiment from the Bubble Talk stamp set with Memento black ink on the back panel.

I used foam tape to close in the sequins and glued some of the sequins to the card base along with some white enamel dots just to add interest.  For the elephant, I coloured him in with my copics and I did some partial die cutting so that it would be all one layer.

 I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment at the bottom corner from the Unforgettable stamp set in Memento black ink.  For the sweet little elephant, I coloured him in with my copics and I partially die cut him and the circle so that it would be all one layer.


Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon!

100th Lawnscaping Challenge Birthday Celebration

Hello everyone!

I'm participating in the Lawnscaping Challenge #100!  

I used the Year Four stamp and die set and I coloured them in with copic markers.  I used a white gel pen to add some detail on the critters.  The butterflies are from the Critters in the Dog Park set and the bow on the Ellie's head is from the Monster Mash stamps and dies. 

I used the Wink of Stella on the balloon and bow and finished it off with Glossy Accents.  For the sentiment I wanted something that was more subtle so I stamped it in a grey ink as well as the butterflies.  I coloured in two clouds behind the sentiment with a very light blue BG70 and used the colourless blender to soften them even more.

I love you!

Hello everyone,

I'm here is a card that I made as a "just because I love you" card.

I use the ever so sweet Unforgettable and Bubble Talk stamp sets and Sunshine layers dies from WPlus9.  The images and sentiments are stamped with memento ink.  I coloured in the adorable elephant with coloured pencils and blended it with mineral spirits.

For the background panel I used the WPlus9 Sunshine layers dies to cut out some kraft and white card stock and popped that up on the card base.  To add a bit of interest to the card base I used the bubbles from the Avery Elle Story Book stamp set and stamped them with Versamark ink.  To finish off the card I added a couple of enamel hearts.

You Drive Me Wild!

Hello everyone!

I'm here today am here with a non-traditional, shaped Valentine's day card.

When I was going through my stamps to see what I was going to for the week's post I wanted to do a Valentine's day card but something a bit different.  So when I saw the Happy Trials stamps and dies I thought this was the one.  

I used the sun from the Spring showers dies and the stamps and dies as well from the Lawn Fawn Happy Trails set.  I coloured in the images with my copics and stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you again soon!

Wish Big

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card that can be used for a number of different occasions.  I am going to use it for a birthday card.  

I used the sweet Avery Elle Story Book stamp set and More Stories Elle-ments dies,  Lawn Fawn's Sky's the Limit and dies, Lawn Fawn's Teeny Tiny backdrops, Grassy Borders die and the LF Stitched rectangles for the panel. I stamped the images with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured in them with copics.  I used distress inks to colour the sky and grass and Hero Arts Pale Tomato for the tiny hearts background.  I stamped the clouds with Versamark on vellum and heat embossed with white embossing powder.  For the sentiment and the butterflies on the panel I used Hero Arts black ink.

Thanks for stopping by.  See you again soon!
