Hello friends! I am so excited to be joining in on a fun Instagram Hop today in order to celebrate Vanessa’s (the owner of Butterfly Reflections Ink) Birthday! She is turning 21 (x2) and will be giving out a free stamp or die set for all orders today that are $42 and up.
For my card today, I used all products from My Favorite Things. The adorable images came from one of my favorite birthday stamp sets called Sending Sweet Celebration Wishes by Stacey Yacula.
I stamped all of my images onto a sheet of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with Copic friendly Black Ink. I then colored everything with Copic Markers and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
I then blended some Distress Oxide Inks (Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass) onto another piece of Smooth White Card Stock. I started with my darker color and the bottom and added my lighter color toward the top to get a nice gradient of dark to light between the two colors. Once blended, I splattered this piece generously with water and blotted it dry with a clean paper towel. I then added some more splatters using diluted gold and green Gansai Tambi Watercolor Paints. I then trimmed this piece down to 4.25″ x 5.5″ once dry.
I used the Collage Cover-Up Die-namics to create a beautiful grid from white card stock. I offset my sentiment to allow room for my images and stamped it with black ink onto the stitched white panel. Lastly, I added all of my images with 3D Foam Adhesive Squares for some slight dimension.
Thank you all for stopping by! If you want to join in on this hop and see what other fun creations have been created by the rest of the crew, head on over to my INSTAGRAM feed!
