Waffle Flower April Release Blog Hop

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Waffle Flower April Release Blog Hop. I'm so happy and honored to guest design for Waffle Flower for the month of April. Today, I am highlighting a few of the products from this beautiful release. 

For my first card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock and ran it through the die cut machine with the Pop-up Butterflies Panel Die. I then inked through the Duo-tone Butterfly Stencil with Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink in the middle and inked blended the sides with Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Ink. I did this technique for both layers. I heat embossed the sentiments in gold and cut them with the coordinating dies. I love that these come with coordinating die cuts! I cut a few pieces to stack for dimension. Then, I scored the centers of each butterfly and folded the wings towards the center. I wanted a different color in the open spaces of the butterfly wings, so I cut an A2-sized gold glitter cardstock and glued it under the card panel. To add more dimension, I foam mounted the panel onto a card base that measures 4.5" x 5.75". Lastly, I added jewels here and there for interest and shine. 
For my second card, I inked through the Duo-tone Butterfly Stencil. I wanted to have two colors and I chose Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide Ink for the first layer and Milled Lavender for the second layer. I then splattered some gold paint for added interest. Next, I heat embossed the sentiment and cut it with the coordinating die. I then added jewels for some shine. Lastly, I adhered the card panel onto a pink card base that measures 4.5" x 5.75".

Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop and happy  9th birthday, PPP!  Today, I’m sharing a birthday card and a gift card holder that I made using dies and stencils from the new Birthday Release.  For my card, I started with an A2-sized white cardstock that I ink blended with Saltwater Taffy Distress Oxide Ink. I sprayed some water for an oxidized effect and also splattered some white ink on it. I then took a scrap of white cardstock and used finger daubers to ink blend Distress Oxide Inks in rainbow colors. I used Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Lucky Clover, Salty Ocean, and Wilted Violet. I sprayed water, splattered white ink, and cut the rainbow colored panel with the WISH die. I also cut the flame from the Birthday Mug Addition Dies and ink blended it with Mustard Seed Distress Oxide Ink.  Next, I stamped the sentiments with black ink then foam mounted WISH and the flame on the card panel. I also added some pearls for inter

Pretty Pink Posh March 2023 Release Blog Hop

Hello friends! Welcome to the Pretty Pink Posh February 2023 Release Blog Hop! For my card, I started with a 4.5” square white cardstock and I ink blended through the Layered Carrots Stencil with Distress Oxide Inks.  Layer A: Dried Marigold Layer B: Spiced Marmalade Layer C: Twisted Citron I then matted this stenciled panel on a 5” square cardstock that I ink blended with Spiced Marmalade. For added interest, I sprayed this larger panel with water that has a bit of white ink.  Next, I cut the dies from the Winter Mug Dies and the new Easter Mug Additions Dies in white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers and Distress Oxide Inks. The blue bunny mug also got a print from the Mini Grid Stencil . Before foam mounting the mug, I placed a sheet of vellum to soften the carrot background and I also stamped the sentiment onto the vellum with Stazon ink.  Here are the Copic markers I used for the mini eggs: BG70, R00, V000, Y11, YG61, YR000 I embellished the card with Pi
