I was so excited to see this month’s mood board for February because I just adored the soft colors.  I wanted to create a Valentine’s Day card for a friend in non traditional Valentine’s Day colors.  I started off ink blending my panel using Distress Oxides in Scattered Straw, Milled Lavender, and Weathered Wood. Once I was done ink blending, I used the My Favorite Things Lots of Hearts Stencil and applied Nuvo Moonstone Glimmer Paste over the stencil onto my ink blended panel.  To say that I am obsessed with this glimmer paste is an understatement! It creates such beautiful shimmer over any color it is applied to! It is a must have!!  Once dried, I used the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Heart Trio Shaker Window die and ran it through my die cutting machine twice to make 2 rows.  Make sure the glimmer paste is completely dry before you do this!  I then laid my die cute panel over a piece of white cardstock and lightly traced the hearts.  This was so I was able to perfectly stamp my My Favorite Things Heart Art Stamps in the correct position.  I alternated each stamped image using Altenew premium dye inks in Blush, Limestone, and Butter Cream.

I then added the My Favorite Things Heart Trio Shaker Pouches using double sided tape.  I added some Pretty Pink Posh Jewels in Buttercream, Ivory and Pink Blush.   Once all my shaker elements were added, I adhered directly to my stamped heart card stock using double side tape. I adhered my complete shaker panel to my card base using foam adhesive.  For my sentiment, I used My Favorite Things Sassy Pants Love Stamp set.  This is such a fun sentiment stamp set for all your friends!  I heat embossed using Versamark embossing pad and LawnFawn White embossing powder. I adhered in the center of my panel using foam adhesive.

Up In The Air – MFT – Butterfly Reflections Ink

Upintheair mft bri 1

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.
