Beautiful Butterflies

Do you remember the card I made a couple of weeks ago with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits? I kept all the ones that were cut off and created this gem!  And I have enough for one more!  The one item that made these butterflies a breeze to put together was the Multi Purpose Adhesive Sheet!  Just place a piece on the cardstock color you will use for your detailed die, then run it through the Big Shot! You now have a sticker-peel off the back and place on top of the bottom color! Crazy, I didn’t even use a stamp or ink on this card!

I LOVE the FREE Botanical Butterfly Paper!  The back side of each colorful piece of DSP has a black and white pattern!  I love this gingham with the Calypso Coral and Black! I was going to add a sentiment, but I felt it would have been too much!  Clean and Simple!

March Hostess Code is PBXJZGXM and I will also send you a FREE pack of Frosted Flower Embellishments just for ordering from me!  Click on Laura’s Stampin’ Up! website to order now!

Simple butterflies

Oh my,  the Butterfly Gala bundle is my favorite out of the Occasions Catalog! The punch pops out both butterfly images at the same time! And the photopolymer stamps make the placement a snap! The stamps have two butterflies that line up perfect with the punch! You can make tons of them!

I used Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove among with sponge daubers to color the butterflies! Just gorgeous!

To make the Ombre look, I stamped the small solid butterfly full strength and then two more times before re-inking the stamp.  I love the Gingham Gala DSP pack and how easy it makes such gorgeous cards!  This card was made for my Sweet & Simple class.  Now I need to make a Valentine’s Day card for the 2nd card!

Beautiful Stained Glass

final

I am so happy that we have the new Stampin’ Blends markers!  They are alcohol based markers that make shading a snap!  The collection can be sold as a whole set, in pairs, or per marker.  There are also color lifters, Ivory, and Bronze colors to make your skin tones easy too!

I wanted to focus on a fun technique this month at club, and used them with the Stained Glass technique.  It’s super simple and yields gorgeous results!

  1. USE the Embossing Buddy!! I usually forget using it, but for this technique, it’s a must.  Rub some on the surface of the vellum.
  2. Next, use Versa Mark and stamp your image on the vellum.
  3. Use a dark or metallic embossing powder to sprinkle on top.
  4. Heat the powder using the heat tool.
  5. Choose your markers that you want to use and color on the BACK side of the vellum.
  6. Adhere your vellum to a light colored card stock.  I used Glue Dots under the wings to keep them hidden.

I also used Washi Tape to keep the sides down and a Glue Dot on top covered by the Fresh Fig bow. I am so ready for warmer weather and pretty flowers! So, you may see a lot of bright colors and flowers coming!  After this cold/flu/sick season….I am done!
