Guest Designer – Rebecca Yahrling

Happy Birthday June 2017 007Welcome back to Cropstop for another guest designer post! Today we’re featuring the lovely work of Rebecca Yahrling. You’ll want to stop by her Flickr gallery and see all the pretty cards she’s created! I love the texture she included on today’s card with an embossed butterfly and a texture paste stenciled panel!

Here’s what Rebecca says about how she put this sweet card together: “Cut a 4″x9 9/16″ piece of pink cardstock with my Fiskars paper trimmer; folded in half and lightly distressed (Tim Holtz distress tool) all edges.┬áCut a 4 1/2″x4 11/16″ piece of designer paper (Crate Paper) and lightly distress all edges. Using Tim Holtz distress ink spun sugar, I lightly went around all edges so it wasn’t so white from the distressing. I used double sided tape to adhere this piece to the pink card base. Cut a 1 3/4″x4 1/2″ piece of watercolor paper (Strathmore 90 lb). I stenciled the flowers (Americana Classic “Jacobean Floral’) with a mixture of Ranger texture paste and TH distress inks: spun sugar, mowed lawn, gathered twigs & squeezed lemonade (one color at a time) and let it dry overnight. I used foam squares (Scrapbook Adhesives) to attach this piece to the card for dimension. On vellum, I stamped the butterfly (CTMH “Paper Bird”) in white (Colorbox) & embossed in white (Stampendous) then fussy cut. I glued (Aleene’s tacky glue) the butterfly only at the body to the w/c piece so it looks like it’s in flight. I stamped the sentiment (CTMH “Belated Birthday Occasions”) with TH distress ink gathered twigs at the bottom right. I really love how the stenciled panel came out using the tinted paste and will be doing more of that fun technique.

Thanks for sharing your talent with us this month, Rebecca! We’re looking forward to seeing what beautiful things you’ve created for the next two weeks!

      Thanks, Connie, for the sweet comment.
      I think I’m going to add a little bling somewhere…
      in looking at the photo more, it needs something else.
