Using the Tim Holtz Distress dabber in white,

I dabbed a flower stamp with the Distress paint then

stamped around the bottom of the card.

Using the same stamp, re-stamp the pattern slightly

off the first white pattern with the black stamp pad.

 Use accent stamps for boarders.

The diamonds were dabbed with white, then outlined with a white gel pen.

Grab a blank index card, and spray with ink spray for butterflies.

Then stamp the inked index card with a butterfly stamp a few times. Cut them out,

To add detail, color in your stamped butterfly with markers,

 then glue in place.

Let Dry.

Have fun!!


Dylusions Spray Inks by Dyan Reaveley and Ranger

For Christmas I was lucky enough to receive the full set of 18 Dylusions Ink Sprays, and I have to say I love them!!! Not a day has gone by that I am not covered in colors and happy as a clam about it. These inks have so many possibilities and are so much fun. Thank goodness they are super easy to get off with water if you accidentally *ahem, spray your floor counter and toaster oven, Tee Hee. My boyfriend is very tolerant.

If you have been curious or have never heard of these sprays you should absolutely check them out.


Here is the very first thing I made….


Bad picture but in real life it looks 3D.

Many more pics to come of my adventures in inks.

OH and on a side note, I don’t usually plug companies unless they really deserve it. I have to say Ranger has the best customer service. They are super nice and have a quick response time.

Who else loves Dylusions? What projects have you created?

Have a wonderful Weekend!
