Coloring Fun

Delicate Layered Masks

The Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative masks are one of the WOW items that I played with from the 2022 Mini Catalog! I have a few color combos that I love to put together. This card shows the Night of Navy and Daffodil Delight mixed with Basic White and a card base of Just Jade (retiring the end of this month).

Both the Mini Catalog and the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog have a wonderful array of masks to choose from! Plus, they are a great tool for beginner stampers along with experienced crafters! There are so many uses!!! You can use Sponge Daubers, Blending Brushes, Embossing Pastes, Stampin’ Spritzers, and so much more!

I used the Blending Brushes to color this card. I first placed the Basic White piece on the Stamparatus Plate and held it down with washi tape. I used side of the mask with the bigger flowers to color the Daffodil Delight. Next, I followed up with the other side of the mask that has the thinner flower lines with Crushed Curry. To complete the look, I used Just Jade with the leaf masks.

I wanted a simple sentiment on a small piece of Smoky Slate. Just enough so it stood out but didn’t take away from the main image! The Night of Navy piece is dry embossed with the Gingham Embossing Folder. Pearls are the final touch to make this card a masterpiece! And it was so easy too! Why not give it a try?

There are only a couple weeks left until the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and other items retire for good! Browse through link to get your favorites before they are gone! I love to spoil those who help me and my business! I will send you a thank you gift for choosing me as your demonstrator!

How to Use Blender Brushes

I have gone a little overboard with the new Butterfly Brilliance bundle these past couple of weeks! If you are into butterflies-this bundle is a must have! I promise to share my creations! But this one was super quick to make with the stamp set being ONE big stamp and the dies are welded together. That way they line up perfectly and they all cut out at once!

These Blending Brushes are amazing! So much that they are unavailable for just a bit. I promise they are worth the wait!

  1. They are buttery and velvety soft beyond what I imagined!
  2. There are 3 in a pack for just $12!!! Economical!
  3. They clean soooooo easy! Most of my ink was rinsed out of the bristles with just a little Dawn dish soap and water. I dried them some on a dry towel and let them air dry overnight.
  4. You can actually use the same one for different colors with out it leaving residue from the previous color. (if you haven’t washed them yet)
  5. To make the ink look soft on your surface: apply the ink and with a circular motion, add to your paper.
Butterfly Brilliance

To create this super simple card, I inked up the whole butterfly stamp with Basic Grey and stamped onto a piece of Basic White paper (3 3/4″ x 5″). Be sure you have one full image of a butterfly to adhere the inked one on top of. I stamped it again on another piece of Basic White-and then cut it out with the dies. I then used Misty Midnight, Rococo Rose, and Balmy Blue to shade the loose butterfly. I love the added Wink of Stella on top to add more pop! I also used Seal on the back of the body, Dimensionals, then more Seal on the edges of the wings. That way it stay arched when you lay it on your cardstock.

I used Smoky Slate for the card base (A2: 8 1/2″x 5 1/2″) and a mat of Basic Grey (4″ x 5 1/4″). The finishing touches are a sentiment and a few Basic Rhinestones.
