Hello! It's Jennifer with the second post of the day of our cross promotion with Joy Clair Stamps! Keep checking back everyday for inspiration from our design team, as well as from the ladies at Joy Clair! Using the Blank Wood Card set, I created a mini album with the Butterfly Kisses Clear Stamps.
I began by lightly painting all sides of my Blank Wood Card set with white acrylic paint. I did add water to my paint to thin it out in order to allow the wood grain to show through.
Once my paint was dry, I used StazOn ink in black to stamp my butterfly cluster to the front of my album. Because its a porous surface you can use a pigment ink, but since I painted it first I used StazOn to prevent any smudging. After my album was assembled, I lightly painted Distress Oxide ink into the bare sections of the butterflies to add some color.
Using vellum, I stamped this "let your dreams fly" sentiment with StazOn. I then used a circle punch to cut the sentiment out and layered it over a neutral print. I secured the two together with a small staple in lieu of using any adhesive. I then attached the circles with pop dots and tied bakers twine around to accent.
Here is a photo of my inside cover; I trimmed down one of the 4x6 journaling cards to fit the Blank Card and added stickers, chipboard, and a mini doily.
I used a 12x12 Acrylic Sheet and trimmed down to 3.5 x 5 inches to create a page insert. Using the 6 Inch Monarch Butterfly Mascil, I applied a layer of modeling paste to the acrylic. Once dry, I lightly applied Distress Oxide Ink to add color.
Here is the end result of the modeling paste + ink! I blended the two colors in some areas to give contrast.
My next pages are cut from smooth white cardstock which I embellished as well as stamped with sentiments from the stamp set. The book can be used for journaling or wallet sized photos can be added as well.
Here, I folded a vellum envelope and filled with the Princess Sequins from Clear Scraps!
For my second acrylic page, I used the Butterfly Flock 4x6 Stencil and Modeler Creme in Champagne. It goes on smooth and dries fairly quick.
After my Modellier Creme was dry, I added patterned paper and a metal charm with bakers twine.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today! Have a great day!
