Butterfly Birthday Wishes | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Tuesday! Yesterday was such a productive day thanks to the little one being back in daycare! I was so excited to be able to get things done with a million snack and potty breaks! Here’s to hoping that today is just as if not more productive! Popping in bright and early today to share a very quick card that’s simple to make but looks so fancy!

To create this card I started with the Layered Butterfly Stencil from Pretty Pink Posh, inking up the first layer using distress oxide inks in kitsch flamingodried marigoldscattered strawtwisted citrontumbled glass and shaded lilac. I inked up the second layer with the same distress oxide inks, going heavy handed this time. Instead of a top to bottom rainbow, this time I went around the card front instead. I finished of the stenciled image using black soot for the last layer.

I finished off the card by adding a word die cut using the Happy Birthday Script Dies and some sequins.

Get Well Soon | Pretty Pink Posh

Happy Monday! I hope that y’all had a great weekend and are ready for the week! I have a pretty busy week coming up and here’s to hoping that I can keep the productivity from last week going! Popping in today to share a card for a cause, Shery Russ, owner of STAMPlorations. I was lucky enough to guest design for her a while back and she’s not only creative, but a great person! Unfortunately she is suffering from cancer now and needs all the support and help that she can get! We hope they hop can get the word out!

I have this “Get well soon” die from Pretty Pink Posh and I’m grateful I don’t have to use it often, but it seemed like a fitting card for this hop. I started by die cutting the Get well soon die from purple glitter card stock, and a second time using black card stock to create a shadow. Using a glue pen I layered the die cuts off set, and placed it under a heavy book to set.

Next I used the Floral Background stencil along with Distress Oxides in Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, and Picked Raspberry to create an inked background.

Lastly, I stamped the wreath from the Spring Wreath Stamp Set with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored it using copic markers. Once I was done coloring I stamped the image again, this time using Versamark Ink and embossed it using Gold Embossing Powder. I die cut it using the coordinating die and added it to my inked background. And finished off by layering the sentiment on the wreath.

Floral Thank You | Newton’s Nook Designs

Happy Tuesday! I know I keep saying I’ll be back to share more crafty inspiration with y’all but life keeps happening and I keep getting tied up with the most random things! But I’m here today, and we’ll see how things go tomorrow, LOL. I have decided to take it day by day in this busy season of life. Except for vacations, and weekends, I have those packed till like August LOL!

Okay, y’all are here for a card so let’s get to that! Seattle (and pretty much most of the NW) has had a super late start to spring, so I’ve just been making a ton of spring-y cards in hopes of manifesting it to come! I also purged some of my crafty supplies, and that revealed some older stamp sets that I figured I would ink up!

I love it when companies make their products coordinate! For this card, I stamped and colored the oval image from the Best Mom Oval Stamp Set, then restamped and embossed it with rose gold embossing powder. I die cut it using a scalloped from the Oval Frames Die Set, and added to a sheet of pattern paper from the Springtime Paper Pad trimmed down to an A2 size.

To add a little dimension to the card, I stamped and embossed (in the same rose gold) some of the butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Stamp Set on to vellum and fussy cut them. I added them to an oval die cut, also cut using the Oval Frames Die Set from a coordinating cardstock and embossed a sentiment from the Best Mom Oval Stamp Set on to it. I added the sentiment piece to the rest of the card using some foam tape. And as always finished off the card with some jewels.

Therm O Web & Newton’s Nook Designs collaboration week

Good morning crafty friends! It’s been a minute since I have been on here! Took a break for Eid, and it ended up being long than expected! Excited to be back this week for the  Newton’s Nook Designs and Therm O Web collaboration week with fabulous inspiration week (check here for day 1 and day 2!)

All week long both design teams will be sharing ways to use Therm O Web products with Newton’s Nook Designs stamps! There are prizes too! Read all the way to the end of this post to find out how you can win!

I combined multiple Therm O Web products, along with some of my favorite Newton’s Nook Designs stamps and stencils to create these cards.

To create this card I started by inking up the first layer of Butterflies Stencil Set using distress oxide ink (I used saltwater taffy, dried marigold, twisted citron and tumbled glass). I used the detailed stencil from the set to add a layer of  Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. Once it dried, I ran it through my Minc Machine with a sheet of Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets (in Tuscan Gold).

I embossed a sentiment in gold embossing powder from the Heartfelt Butterflies stamp set on to a banner die cut from Banner Trio Die Set. I wanted to add a little more dimension to the card, so I embossed two of the butterfly images from the Monarchs on to vellum with gold embossing powder and fussy cut them, and adhered them to my card with a little foam tape. And as always, finished off my card with some jewels.

Popping in today to share a quick-ish card cause sometimes you just don’t have the time or energy for detailed coloring! That’s when the newest coordinating ink blending stencils come in handy! I avoided them for a while, now I am hooked!

Next I inked up the “vase” using Tumbled Glass distress oxide ink.

The I ink blended the leaves using Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks.

To create this card I started by card base with an oval window using the Oval Frames Die Set and the new Springtime Paper Pad. I sandwiched the fishing line between the pattern paper and the card front.

Next I stamped the little butterflies from the Newton’s Blooms Stamp SetGnome Garden Stamp SetDaffodils Stamp Set and Bitty Bunnies Stamp Set twice, and colored them using copic markers and die cut them using the coordinating dies (Newton’s Blooms Die SetGnome Garden Die SetDaffodils Die SetBitty Bunnies Die Set).

After coloring I restamped the image with watermark ink and embossed it with gold embossing powder and added a sentiment, and die cut is using one of the die from the Oval Frames Die Set.

Next I inked up the card base using the Petite Flowers Stencil and some purple and pink ink. I added the die cut piece and finished off with some jewels.

For my second card, I really wanted to use this rain sheet of pattern paper Springtime Paper Pad cause it was raining outside! I die cut it with one of the stitched oval dies from the Oval Frames Die Set and added it to a coordinating sheet of blue card stock. Next I colored in the image from the Newton’s Rainy Day Trio with copic markers and die cut it using the coordinating Newton’s Rainy Day Trio Die Set.

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!

Happy Crafting!
