Guest Designing for Butterfly Reflections Ink!

Hello there!  Happy Sunday!  I am so excited to share that I will be guest designing for my friend Vanessa's shop, Butterfly Reflections Ink, this month!  If you are a stamper and/or cardmaker, I am sure that you have paid a visit or two to Butterfly Reflections, and if not, you are missing out!  The store is full of all kinds of stamping and papercrafting goodies from so many awesome companies!   

Today, I have a card to share with you using some Avery Elle patterned papers and some fabulous stamps and dies from WPlus9!

Sending Sunshine
To create my card, I started off with a piece of blue chevron patterned paper from the Avery Elle Everyday Collection 6x6 paper pad.  I used the scalloped frame from the WPlus9 Sunshine Layers die set to cut a piece of white card stock.  Then I used the rounded rectangle die from the same set to cut a piece of sunburst patterned paper also from the Everyday Collection paper pad. I matted that piece on some dark orange card stock to give nice contrast and a pop of bold color.  I cut the word "sunshine" (also from the Sunshine Layers die set) from both white and dark orange card stock.  Using copic markers, I created an orange ombre effect on the white diecut word, then adhered it slightly offset, onto the dark orange diecut to create a shadow.  I cut the clouds from the die set from white card stock and used copic markers and my colorless blender to add a faint blue shadow to the bottom of the solid clouds.  The sun is also diecut from white card stock and colored with copics.   I stamped a coordinating sentiment from the WPlus9 Sending Sunshine stamp set on the top of the sunburst panel, then adhered the diecut word on a slight angle for some added interest.   The clouds were adhered with a glue pen and the sun was popped up with foam tape.  Before I adhered it down, I threaded some twine through an orange button and glued that in the center of the sun.  The entire scalloped panel is popped up on the card front using foam tape, and to finish things off, I added a scattering of sequins.  I had SO much fun with this card!

That's all from me for now!  I'll be back later this month with another fun project.  In the meantime, be sure to visit the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog for tons more inspiration, and do a little shopping in the store!
