Good Vibes Only Inspiration | Butterfly & Floral Cards with Kay
Hello everyone! This is Kay Miller and I am excited to be back again sharing some more fun projects I created with the new Good Vibes Only Collection by Stephanie Low. You can catch my first post here.
Distress inks are a good way to color up your die cuts if you don’t have a large selection of card stock. I have a couple of cards to share with you today showing how you can do that.
For my first card, I used the beautiful Wandering Butterflies dies. I cut the background pieces out of Bristol Board card stock. You can use plain card stock as well, I just like the Bristol Board because the inks blend a little smoother on it. I used some orange and yellow on the top one, pinks and purples on the middle one, and purple and aqua on the bottom one. I sprinkled these with water, blotted them and then let them dry.
After they were good and dry, I cut out the top part to the die, punched out all of the pieces and adhered this over the ink blended ones. For the background of my card, I blended some blue distress ink and sprinkled with water. When this was dry, I adhered the three butterflies with foam tape.
I then stamped the sentiment in black ink, and added some Crystal Clear Nuvo Drops.
Here’s a look at my second card:
For my second card, I used the exact same technique as above, but used the Petal’d Poetry Dies. I blended Distress inks onto the flowers and used green for the leaves.
I also created the background with Distress ink and sprinkled water drops.
I stamped the sentiment in back ink, and again added some Nuvo Crystal Clear Drops

I hope you have enjoyed my cards today! Thank you so much for stopping by!
The colors on both of these sweet cards are so bright and cheerful – they make me happy!!
Love how you used the distress inks. It’s amazing how it can transform a card. The dies are beautiful. These cards are gorgeous,
