Butterflies

Watercolour Wings Note Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share my Watercolour Wings note card with you. This is my newest stamp set and I am so excited to share this with you. I am absolutely loving this stamp set and the bonus is, that you can also get the coordinating dies, so no need for hours of fussy cutting!!! Purchase them together as a bundle and you save a further 15%.

I am using the Whisper White Note Cards and Envelopes pack. These packs are awesome for quick cards, and they are slightly smaller than the usual A5 cards that I make. These note cards are pre-scored, thicker card and you get 20 cards and 20 envelopes in a great value pack for only $10.50.

Let’s get started!

My base card I have left white and added a couple of banners which I punched with the new, must have, Triple Banner Punch. You can create three different sized banners, 1″, 1-1/2″ & 2″. The larger banner uses the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack and the smaller banner is the brand new Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack.

Watercolour Wings

I stamped the butterfly onto Whisper White card, starting with Marina Mist as the base, then Pacific Point, then Island Indigo at the last layer. These stamps are photopolymer, so they are completely clear and so easy to stamp one on top of the other in a 3-step process.

I used the coordinating Bold Butterfly framelits to die cut it out, and the smaller framelit with the Gold Glimmer Paper.

Watercolour Wings

I used Tombo Multipurpose glue to join the butterflies together. On the back of the larger butterfly, I added a small strip of Fast Fuse and some gold metallic thread. I just bunched it up into loops and held it to the fast fuse. How cool is that!

I added the butterfly to the card with dimensionals!

What do you think of my card? I was very pleased with the outcome. I would love for you to leave a comment also.

Sneak Peek ~ Blendabilities & In This Together stamp set

Hello Crafters,

Today I share with you some cards using the new Stampin’ Up! alcohol markers, Blendabilities and a new stamp set in the upcoming annual catalogue, In This Together.

I am just loving this stamp set, which has 3 stamps, but so far I have only used one of them!

I have stamped each of the images in Memento Black Ink which is also new to the Stampin’ Up! range, for specific use with the Blendabilities. Stazon will not work with these alcohol marker, as it will bleed.

The colour scheme used on this card is: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight & Black!

I embossed the Old Olive cardstock with the Beautifully Baroque TIEF. I coloured the feminine figure with the Blendabilities; her hair and skin with the skin tones set and her dress with the Old Olive set & Daffodil Delight set.

The Blendabilities come in sets of 3, being a Stampin’ Up! colour and 2 tones of it. So these coordinate with all of our other products, awesome!

Here is another sample using the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities!
