For my card, I used the Rainbows & Butterflies Stencils 360°TM for the background. I blended just ONE color on each of my 60 degree rotations. I used a combination of Distress oxide inks including Shaded Lilac, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick, and Picked Raspberry to create this soft pastel palette.
I used our Never Lose Hope stand-alone die and cut out 3 pieces using Cotton Candy – Heavyweight Premium Cardstock and stacked them together to create some depth. I used the shadow die on the blended background to create a little window to house the sentiment, and used the same color cardstock for my back panel. I really love the tone-on-tone effect.
I really hope you enjoy today’s inspiration! Don’t forget that this month’s challengeruns until May 13th at 11:59 PDT. We’ll select a winner to receive a $25 CAD Gift Certificate to ppstamps.com which will be announced on May 15th at the beginning of our next challenge! What are you waiting for?

Hello crafty friends! Ashley is back today to share a beautiful friendship card featuring the My BFF stamps set and coordinating Penguin Perfect Cuts! Check out her full video tutorial HERE!
I love the pinkish inked background that Ashley had created. She used Distress Oxide inks in Picked Raspberry and Spun Sugar, with a cloudy stencil. For the hillside grassy fields, she used Distress Oxide inks in Lucky Clover and Twisted Citron, together with a grassy stencil. She also used the largest die from the Dots Meets Dashes Large Rectangle Overlays stand-alone die for the boarder detail.
All of the images are from the My BFF stamp set, and were colored with Copic markers. See how some of the images from the set can be used as clouds as well as leaf clusters? I can’t get enough of these cute smiley faces!
I love that she added a wavy slider channel for the kitty in the trolley to glide across the hillside!
She stamped out the sentiment “Thank you for being a great friend” from the set in Versafine Onyx Black ink.
Finally she splattered some sequins to add some extra sparkle to this dreamy scene!
Thank you so much Ashley! This scene is just full of fun and happiness!
She then die cut a smaller panel from the Dots Meet Dashes Small Rectangle Overlays. To decorate this panel, she used the rainbow image from the My BFF stamp set, and stamp it multiple times with VersaMark ink and white heat embossed them – such a cool idea! She also did the same thing using the butterfly stamp from the set.
I love the vibrant colors she used on her images and the light yellow really gives it a refreshing feel!
She added a little black and white trimming to give it a nice detail. And finally adhered this panel to the diamond backdrop with foam tape for some added dimension!
Thank you so much Anja! These cute rainbows sure put smiles on our faces!
With this new backdrop die, she cut out an A2 size panel. She then ink blended a white card base using Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide Inks. This made a beautiful rainbow hue for the background!
She added some cute images from the My BFF stamp set across the middle portion. I love how she left the bottom part of the card base totally white for a bold contrast. Her sentiment “Thank You For Being A Great Friend” was stamped on the green patterned paper.
Thank you so much Anja! I love this neat and simple card!

First we have Noga with this elegant shaker card. She ink blended the background with tattered rose distress oxide ink. I like how she added the silver-embossed sentiment “I LOVE YOU!”, which was from our Hedgehogs In Love stamp set.
Finally we have Lynnea with her two stunning alcohol inked inspirations. She created two alcohol inked backgrounds for us today with yupo paper. This die cuts nicely with yupo paper. She decorated her first card with the little girl image and a sentiment from our Rabbit Cafe stamp set. For her second card, she used a sentiment from our Sending Kisses Your Way stamp set.
I like how she popped-up her butterflies on one card and then completely cut-them out in the other for a different look. Check out her video to find out what techniques she used!
