For today's card, I used a sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set the focal image form the Butterfly Wings stamp set. The Butterfly Wings stamp set, is a large 5.5 x 5.5 inch background stamp where the outline butterfly images can be colored with markers or colored pencils. The set also comes with a set of sentiments, perfect for greetings on your card. 

May Challenge Post 4

To make this card, I stamped the background image with my Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto a 6x6 inch piece of white card stock, using my Misti Stamping. Since this image is large, I wanted to ensure I got a crisp solid outline image of the butterflies. Therefore, I had to stamp the image a couple of times to get a clean image. Next I trimmed the background to a 1.75 x 5.5 inch strip. 

Next I colored each of the butterflies with my Distress Markers in Spice Marmalade, Mustard Seed and Rusty Hinge. I used a little bit of shading on each of the butterflies to create depth and dimension. Photo1

Next I took a light blue colored pencil from my stash and colored in the background. 

To assemble the card, I first grabbed a piece of black card stock from my stash and trimmed it to 1.25 x 5.5 inches. I then adhered the black card stock trip to my colored colored butterfly panel with some tape runner adhesive. I then adhered this piece to my card base with some liquid adhesive. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Autumn Leaves stamp set onto the white card base with my Versafine Onyx Black ink.

May Challenge Post 3

Lastly I fussy cut a yellow colored butterfly from the remaining background piece and adhered it to the card with liquid adhesive just below the sentiment. There you have it. A simple almost one layer card made from a background stamp. I hope you enjoyed todays's card share and got a bit of inspiration! 

Until next time, happy crafting!

Springtime Greetings using Rinea foil
by Tina Wilstrup

Watermark1.587661750898E12

Hello everyone! These are troubled times, but I hope you're finding time to enjoy the little things. Like spring, warmer weather, flowers blooming and the abundance of colors in them.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

This month Poppystamps is teaming up with Rinea to show you how great our products work together. Rinea makes beautiful foil for all your craft projects. The foil is really unique because the foil is on BOTH sides of the card stock base. This means that you'll find a different color or textured pattern on either side of the foil sheet. Additionally this gives it the ability to hold it's shape making it perfect for dimensional flowers.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

By now you must know that I'm more of a "go all in"-type rather than cas, so I used dies from the spring release to cut lots of foil in lots of gorgoeus spring colors.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

The base for the Butterfly symphony and barrow-part are white cardstock. Everything else is foil. I used a smooth gold foil to back the base.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

I gave the wheelbarrow a quick coloring with Copics. Of course I stamped the sentiment first, so I had to be careful since I hadn't used a Copic-safe ink. Again I used smooth foil for the wheel and flower clusters. I actually cut the blue one in half because I wanted it spread out more and also to give room for the butterflies. Since I placed the blue ones at the back it doesn't show at all.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

The flowers (as well as hedgehogs and butterflies), however, I cut from textured foil just to spice things up.
Watermark1.587661750898E12

After adhering the wheelbarrow to the base I added the extra flowers and 2 hedgehogs. See how Mrs. hog has a flower behind her ear while Mr. hog is fetching her a butterfly?

You'll notice the hedgehogs are mirrored and I simply just used one front and one back, since the textured foils are textured on both sides. 
Watermark1.587661750898E12

Just look at how well these foils hold themselves up. Love that!
Watermark1.587661750898E12

I was so happy to work with these foils, and I do hope you'll give them a try. You'll love the smooth and textured foils and all the beautiful colors they come in.

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you'll leave me a reply. I love reading them. Stay safe!
