PinkFresh Studio Miss You Butterflies

Hello Friends and Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great week! Thanks for stopping by to check out my new butterflies card featuring the new Small Butterflies combo from PinkFresh Studio! This is such a beautiful set! I can’t wait to try the butterflies again in different foil and ink combinations! Let’s jump right in, shall we?

To begin the project, I cut a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and foiled the Small Butterflies using Spellbinders Champagne foil. Then I did some light ink blending on them with PinkFresh Studio inks, Sky Blue, Slumber, Blue Jay and Misty Coast, using the coordinating stencil set. Once the ink blending was done, I used the coordinating die to run them through the die cutting machine. I also foiled the Perfect Sentiments plate using the same Champagne foil and ran those through the machine using the coordinating die for those as well.

While die cutting, I went ahead and cut a frame using the Slim Stitched Scalloped Rectangles, and also did a little ink blending on that as well, using the same Sky Blue ink. I cut another panel of Neenah 110lb and pulled out the Diamond Motif stencil and lightly ink blended some Misty Coast ink on that. I put foam tape on the back of the frame and adhered it to the Diamond Motif panel. I also cut a couple pieces of the Leafy Branch to add to the panel as well.

I glued only the base of the stems of the Leafy Branch to the Motif panel and added the butterflies using foam tape for dimension. I adhered this to my card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. To finish up the project, I added my Miss You sentiment from the Perfect Sentiments set using a combination of glue and foam tape. And .. no project is complete without some bling, so I added some PinkFresh Studio Jewels

That does it for this project! I might actually be in love with these butterflies! So much so, that I might have to order the larger ones! I hope you enjoyed this project and I hope you’re inspired to get crafty too! Stay awesome sweet friend!

Simon Says Stamp Miss You Fading Hearts

I’ve seriously had so much fun with the new Fading Hearts Stencil from the newest Rainbows release by Simon Says Stamp! This stencil has sparked a new love for stencils for me! The ink blending! The gels! The pastes! Oh my, so many awesome things to do with them! But .. for today’s project, I tried a little something different! Let’s take a look!

I’m loving this stencil so much, but I wanted to mix it up a bit and use it in an unexpected way! To begin my project, I pulled out a sheet of watercolor paper and taped it to my board using masking tape. My board happens to be a cheap clipboard from Target. But hey, it works like a charm! I also pulled out some rainbow colors from my set of Karin Brushmarkers. I started by saturating my watercolor panel with water and dropping in color using the markers. I moved the color around with my brush to get it just the way that I wanted it.

I set that panel aside to dry while I worked on the hearts. I began this portion of the project by adhering the stencil to a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using masking tape. I then used a palette knife to spread Picket Fence Studios Snowdrop Paper Glaze over the stencil. That also had to be set aside to dry. Don’t forget to wash your stencil and tools right away, so as not to ruin them. Once the watercolor panel was dry, I splattered it with some Royal Talens Amsterdam Titanium White Acrylic Ink. I love this ink because it’s the perfect consistency for splattering and it stays a nice bright white.

Now that the Paper Glaze panel was dry, I placed it in the Misti and proceeded to stamp the SSS Crackle Background over the glazed hearts using VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I did run my heat tool over the stamped crackle just to heat set it so that it wouldn’t smear. Then … I fussy cut all of the hearts! Well, some were too tiny to cut, but I cut all the ones that I could, and put 3M Foam Tape on the back of them.

I used the PinkFresh Studio Stitched Rectangles Die to cut a frame and adhered that to my watercolor panel using foam tape as well. I then placed all of the hearts atop the watercolor panel along with the SSS Reverse Sentiment Strip Miss You So. This was then adhered to my card base, which is Neenah 110lb.

That finishes this project, and I love how it turned out! I love the idea of using your stencils in a different way by cutting the design out. It’s so unexpected! Anyhoo, I hope you enjoyed this project, and I hope it sparks some inspiration in you to look at your stencils in a new way! Don’t forget to check out the entire new Rainbows release from Simon Says Stamp!

Stay awesome friends!
