You Inspire Me

Good Morning everyone and happy Tuesday! Welcome back from Creativation weekend! I was watching from home and it looked so fun! It was so exciting to see all the sneak peaks of the fabulous new products that I am sure will be hitting the Butterfly Reflections shelves soon! I’m here on the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog today sharing a card that I made for a crafty friend!

I used the Studio Katia Japanese Peony Stamp and coordinating die for my focal point on my card.  This is such a beautiful floral set and the sentiments are perfect! I started by stamping the My Favorite Things Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Background stamp with VersaMark embossing ink.  I heat embossed using Lawn Fawn Gold Embossing Powder and adhered to my card base using foam adhesive.  I stamped the flower using Gina K Jet Black Amalgam ink and colored with various copic markers.  I used Lawn Fawn Chunky Glitter around the leaves and the center of the flower.  I adhered the floral image to my panel using foam adhesive.

For the sentiment I heat embossed using the Lawn Fawn Gold embossing powder and die cut the bow from mirrored card stock.  I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Jewel in the center of the bow for and Aquamarine jewels  around the flower for extra detail.  Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have fabulous rest of your week and I’ll see you next Tuesday!
