Hello there crafty friend! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie
with a few more cards using the wonderful A Farmhouse Spring card kit
from Scrapping for Less! I really wanted to play with the beautiful Butterfly Stencil that’s included in the Banana Split subscription
… have you seen the lovely cards being created by the Design Team with this stencil?! So inspiring!! Mine was slightly delayed in arriving but now I have it and I couldn’t wait to play!!
What do you think?! Pretty cute cards if I do say so myself! I started by blending Picket Fence Distress ink over the stencil onto a card front of Spearmint, Cotton Candy, and Grapesicle card stock. I then die cut the card fronts with a few different rectangle dies in my stash… just to change things up so they weren’t all the same. I adhered those to white card bases from my stash.
And then I blended some Spun Sugar Distress Oxide ink
over a scrap of white card stock and die cut it with a circle die. I die cut three scalloped circles from the vellum paper… one for each card and then die cut three more scalloped circles from the Spearmint, Cotton Candy, and Grapesicle card stock.
I set all of those pieces aside and blended some Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink over the Butterfly Stencil. It wasn’t quite the right shade of purple but I tried to keep it light and I think it works pretty well.
I then blended a few different green oxide inks and decided that Cracked Pistachio was the closest to coordinating with the Spearmint green. I die cut the purple butterflies and the green butterflies and then stamped the Hello Spring sentiment on each of the circles with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I then adhered all of my circle layers.
Now at this point, I had decided on my design for the card but it needed something. I decided to add a banner strip of black card stock from my stash to make the sentiment pop just a bit more on the cards.
Here’s another look at the three cards together… I really love how they turned out! I hope you do too!
I have one more bonus card to share. When I was finishing up the trio of cards above, I had an idea for this card. It’s a pretty simple design. Just some ink blending with the same three colors I used on the first three cards, but I did mask some of the stencil so that the butterflies looked like they’d be flying out of the sentiment. The sentiment is from the Hello Spring stamp set and I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I had an extra piece of Cotton Candy card stock in my stash so I mat the main panel with that. I then adhered the panel to a white card base. And to finish it off, I added a few of the sequins that were also included in the Banana Split subscription.
I hope that I’ve inspired you to get inky with your card kit!! And if you don’t have this lovely card kit to play with, I believe that there are a few more left in the shop so go get one before they are all gone!! You will love it!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
See ya next time.
