To kick off National Scrapbook Day I came up with a trio of cards using the absolutely stunning May mood board for Butterfly Reflections Ink as inspiration. Ha ha, I know it’s scrapbook day but I’m just not big into scrapbooking…I’m STILL working on my wedding scrapbook and it’s been 6 years since I got married! 😉
So, cards it is! First, here’s the mood board! Aren’t those colors yummy?!?
And here’s what I came up with!
I’ve been experimenting with foiling and had been hoping that the embossing powder/laminator idea would work but I just had no luck with it. I had access to a laser printer a few days ago and I copied a scrap piece of paper to see if it would work better and it was amazing!! So I gave in and picked up a cheap laser printer…it has totally changed my world!! I mean, seriously, look at these results?!
And here’s a close-up of the foiled sentiment from My Favorite by Neat and Tangled!
*Sigh*….I’m in love!
The panels were watercolored with a mix of Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, and Dried Marigold distress inks. They’re framed with a piece of vellum and then adhered to a cardstock base. I finished the cards with a sprinkling of Glass Slippers sequins from The Ton!
I hope you’re inspired by this month’s mood board! Create a layout or project inspired by the board and link it up to the Butterfly Reflections Ink blog before midnight on Sunday, May 3rd for the chance to win a $20 gift certificate to the store! Thanks for visiting and happy shopping!

I shopped at Butterfly Reflections! I bought clear embossing powder, a Uni-ball Signo white pen and an exclusive stamp set ‘In the Clouds.’ Wanted more, but I guess I waited too late today to order — they were out of some of the things I wanted. But I’m happy with what I got anyway!
