Hello crafty friends and welcome!! I am up on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today showing you a fun card featuring My Favorite Things Up In the Air stamp set and coordinating die set. This set is so cute and versatile, it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day!!
I wanted to try my hand at a “long” card instead of the usual A2 standard size. I started off ink blending using Distress Ink Oxide Tumbled Glass and My Favorite Things Mini Cloud Edges Stencil. This stencil is so easy to use and you can create endless clouds that come out perfect every time! I stamped all my images using Gina K Amalgam Black Ink Pad. This ink is amazing, it stamps bold, crisp lines every time and can be used with various coloring mediums. Once stamped, I colored each image with various copic markers. I then used the coordinating dies and ran through my die cutting machine. For the bottom grass part of my card I used Lawnfawn Stitched Hillside Backdrop and just trimmed off the top. I adhered to my cloud panel using Mono Permanent Tape Adhesive. Now the fun part starts, where I “play” on placement for all my images.
Once laid out and I am happy with the placements, I adhered to my panel, some flat and some elements I used foam adhesive tape. I added Lawnfawn Prisma Glitter to the front doors of my houses, and LawnFawn Chunky Glitter to my clouds. It’s hard to capture the sparkle but it adds the perfect touch. I also used Spectrum Noir Clear Sparkle Pen to add sparkles to my hearts on the balloon. This glitter pen is great because it’s clear and won’t change the color of your image but just adds a little shimmer! For my sentiment I stamped one of the many sayings that is included in this set with Versamark embossing pad and heat embossed with LawnFawn white embossing powder.
I hope you enjoyed this card!! And make sure to stop by the shop to pick up this amazing set and any other supplies you need! I’ll see you next Tuesday, have a fabulous day!!
