Hashtag Winning

Hi Everyone!

Jenny here with my last post of my official Butterfly Reflections Ink DT term .  To end with a 'boom', I'm using the Butterfly Reflections Ink/Bossy Joscie collaboration stamp sets #Hashtag and #Hashtag Bossy.  These sets are so funny and feature a great array of #hashtags for almost any day of the week :)

To start, I die cut a butterfly from a piece of Inkadinkado Stamping Masking Paper trimmed to 4.25" x 5.5".  This butterfly is an older one from my stash but these by Reverse Confetti would work perfectly.

I then trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock to the same size and overlayed the negative part of the masking paper so the bristol panel was fully covered.  Using Versafine Smokey Grey ink and an acrylic block, I stamped pretty much all of the individual tiny sentiments from both sets, both horizontally and vertically (both directions) all over the butterfly opening, making sure to overlap the edges.

I then used Distress Oxide ink in Picked Raspberry and a mini ink-blending tool and blended ink, starting from the bottom of the butterfly and fading it out towards the top.  (Blending is much easier on Bristol Smooth in my experience).   I then removed the mask.

I stamped the 'dreamer' from the #Hashtag Bossy set in Versafine Onyx Black ink, and heat embossed it with WOW! Clear Multi-Sparkle embossing powder.  I then trimmed down the panel, taking off 1/8th inch off each side, and adhered to a hot pink card base using fun foam and double sided adhesive.

I stamped the #winning sentiment in Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide onto a scrap of Bristol, trimmed it out and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish, I added Sherbert Shimmer Nuvo Glitter Drops.

And that's it! I hope you enjoyed it, and make sure you get these two stampsets for your stash - they're a must have!

I just want to add that I have absolutely LOVED my time at BRI, and hope to pop up again in the future from time to time (if Vanessa will have me :D).  Have a wonderful day!
