Hello crafty friends! This is my first blog post of the year with Butterfly Reflections Ink, and of course I am using the gorgeous January BRI Moodboard. If you haven’t already drooled all over these elegant and glam colors, they are Icy Mint, Powder Pink, Rose Gold , and Deep Space Blue.
I have so many different card ideas I want to create, but I still hadn’t used some of my Winter Lawn Fawn haul, as well as most of the brand new Lawn Fawn too. So I thought I’d better get to it! I used the new Special Delivery stamps and dies, along with the Add On set with the boxes and labels. I love that owl and his little mail man hat so much. I combined these images, with some bears from the winter release Den Sweet Den, set to create a lovely snowy book delivery.
I stamped all of my images using the brown Crunchy Leaf in from Lawn Fawn, and copic colored my images using colors that fit the Moodboard. After die cutting the images using the coordinating dies, I added white dot highlights. I cut some paper panels using Lawn Fawn cross stitched layers, then inkblended a powder pink sky onto some Bristol smooth cardstock using Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink. I splattered it with white ink and metallic Rose Gold Shimmer Spray. I layered some glittery cardstock to create a snowy hillside
Before attaching my images I cut a wavy sliding channel for my owl to fly across the scene. I used the Slide on Over Waves channel dies, but I shortened the channel by partially die cutting the length to fit the smaller area. Then I adhered my remaining images across the snowy bottom. I decided to add some glittery snowflakes and discovered that the small assortment of snowflakes in the Magic Iris Snow Globe Add On has the most perfect assortment of snowflakes using only one die and pass through the machine.
I mounted my image panel onto some mint and navy cardstock layers using adhesive foam tape, making sure to dust the areas around the slider with my powder tool, for easy movement. Once my card was all assembled I felt like my owl was spinning all over the place, so I weighted the bottom of the image with a small metal washer and now my mail man stays upright, and slides easily across the scene.
