Butterfly Box Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Y’all I finally made a box card! I shared it on Instagram a while back, but I didn’t get a chance to share it here! I’ve been hoarding this box card die from Lawn Fawn for YEARS!! Finally unclipped the dies and made this card along with some Pretty Pink Posh products.

Making a box card wasn’t too difficult, but it takes a little planning as there are multiple components. I’m going to break it down into steps, in hopes to keep it clear!

  1. Inked up two 6 x 6 sheets of white card stock on both sides. I used the Butterfly Background Stencil along with distress oxides in Picked RaspberryFestive BerriesRipe PersimmonSqueezed LemonadeTwisted CitronSalty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. Then I die cut it using the Scalloped Box Card Pop-Up.
  2. Stamped, colored (with copics) and die cut the smaller butterfly from Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.
  3. Stamped, colored and fussy cut the floral border from the Spring Borders stamp set.
  4. To assemble the box, I started by assembling the box using double sided tape. Next I added the floral border, three times. Lastly I used thin strips of acetate to adhere the butterflies.
  5. Lastly, I added a sentiment. 

I hope this encourages you to create something out of your comfort zone!

DIY Butterfly Background | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Monday! I hope y’all had a crafty weekend, I didn’t do my usual paper crafts, but I tried ceramic painting for the first time! I can’t wait to see what I finished product looks like!

Today’s card is a ‘stretch your supplies’ type of card. I used the Spring Borders Stamp Set from Pretty Pink Posh, stamping the strip of butterflies multiple times and embossed it with white embossing powder to cover the entire A2 piece of heavy weight card stock.

After heat setting the embossing powder, I ink blended over it using distress oxides (in Kitsch FlamingoFestive BerriesDried MarigoldScattered StrawTwisted CitronTumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac). Once I was done with all the colors, I buffed the card stock to make the white show up brighter!

For the sentiment I used Mother’s Day Script Die cut multiple times from white card stock and stacked using liquid glue. Lastly I added jewels to match the background.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, I hope that you are inspired to create something and make sure to check out the Pretty Pink Posh Blog as they are having a Mother’s Day inspiration week!

Spring Tulips Card| Pretty Pink Posh

Happy April! How are we already in the second quarter of 2021?!? I feel like March 2020 was literally yesterday, which is basically when I colored these tulips stamps! It took me a year to make and share a card, any one else have a stash of colored images that you will use, ‘one day’.

I stamped and colored (using zig real brush markers) the images from Pretty Pink Posh‘s Tulip stamp set. Then I die cut it using the Stitched Notes Dies. For the sentiment I used the Thankful For You Script Die, cutting it from golden card stock. I added the colored panel it an ombre ink blended card front, matching the tulips. Lastly, I added some jewels to finish off the card.

Hope y’all have a crafty weekend ahead and spring is starting to pop up where ever you live! If you are inspired by this card, please tag me on Instagram, as I would love to see it!

Butterfly Shaker Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Saturday! I hope y’all are having a great weekend and get to have some crafty time! It’s time again for #ammismakecards! Make sure to head on over to Instagram to see what my fellow Ammi’s have made!

The theme/key word for this month’s challenge was ‘Shaker Cards‘, so of course I had to pull out my Pretty Pink Posh products as she introduced me to shaker cards almost a decade ago when she was just a blogger! So proud to see how far she has come over the years!

I usually have my shaker as the top layer of my card, but I’ve recently been loving how it looks behind diecuts. To create this card I started by inking up the new released Butterfly Background stencil in rainbow order using distress oxides (in Kitsch Flamingo, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron, Tumbled Glass, and Shaded Lilac). Then I die cut the bigger of the two butterflies from Bold Butterflies Dies to create the shaker window. I added acetate and lots of foam tape and filled the shaker window with Unicorn Dreams Clay Confetti.

I die cut the larger butterfly from Bold Butterflies Dies, this time from purple glitter paper, adding it with foam tape on the shaker window. I didn’t adhere it down all the way to ensure that confetti shows through. I finished off the card with a embossed sentiment from the Simple Sentiments on a strip cut from the Quick Stripes die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and I hope you head over to Instagram to see what everyone else created!

Floral Corner Slimline Card | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Friday! So many reasons to be happy, the sun’s out, baby took a long nap and I don’t have to cook dinner. So of course I’m taking the opportunity to type up this blog post. I just got my hands on the Pretty Pink Posh Spring Release from DoodlebugsWA and had to get coloring immediately.

I used the newly released, Floral Corners stamp set. I started by stamping two of the images with brown ink onto Copic friendly white paper. The colors I used the listed below. I had left the stamps in my stamp positioner, and stamped the image again using versamark ink to heat emboss in gold. Then I die cut them using the coordinating dies.

Copic Combos : YG13-01-00, Y15-13-11, YR07-04-Y17, RV13-11-10, V15-12, R08-05, B02

To create the card, I started by die cutting a slim line card base using the Honey Cuts : Slimline Sentiments Stitched from white paper. Next I ink blended a piece of Bristol Stratmore paper with distress oxides in scattered straw, dried marigold and kitsch flamingo. To add dimension I splattered water and gold paint on to the inked panel. Lastly I die cut the letters ‘LOVE’ from the LOVE coordinating die set. Lastly I stamped and embossed ‘happy anniversary’ from Simple Sentiments stamp set on a black strip of paper with gold embossing powder.

I adhered the letters with liquid glue onto the center of the slimline and added the sentiment strip and floral corners with foam tape. I finished off the card using some of the green and yellow jewels from the harvest jewel mix.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope y’all have a fun, relaxing and crafty weekend!

Rainbow Shaker | Not 2 Shabby Stamps

Happy March! Did it crawl up on you too? I haven’t done my monthly planning NOR have I finished by February to do list! Let’s just say today is going to be busy! So let’s get to it!

Remember the cookie background I created using the Sprinkled with Love from Not 2 Shabby Stamp (I used it here and here), well let’s just say I’m pretty obsessed with it! So I decided to try it out in the new mini slimline size! I started by printing it out on heavy weight white cardstock, then ink blending with distress oxides (in Kitsch Flamingo, Festive Berries, Dried Marigold, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron and Tumbled Glass). Then I trimmed it down with the stitched Mini Slimline Stacklets then I die cut the word ‘happy’ to create a shaker, I used alpha dies from CZ Designs ALL CAPS and the birthday is from Pretty Pink Posh scripted Happy Birthday (stacked 3 times). To create the shaker, I backed the diecut sheet using acetate, layered it with foam tape, and filled it with Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix. Lastly I backed the shaker front with a Petite Scallop Mini Slimline Stacklets.

Thanks for stopping by the blog! Hope you have a great week!

Printing on Vellum | Not 2 Shabby Stamps

Happy Friday! It’s been a long week! Super excited for the weekend and fingers crossed it goes better than last weekend!

I recently discovered that you can print digital images on vellum! I haven’t experimented past printing, but I think this is going to open up a lot of possibilities on using digital stamps!

Last month I created a ‘stamped background’ using the Sprinkled with Love from Not 2 Shabby Stamp. I decided to make another ‘5 min card’ as I call them using the same background, but printed on vellum this time. After printing, I trimmed it down, backed it with some pattern paper and added a stacked die cut sentiment. Lastly I added some clay confetti.

Have you tried printing on vellum? Would love to see your cards, be sure to tag me on Instagram (@everydayengineered)!
