Versamark Resist Technique with Paint Play

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using the Versamark resist technique, also known as ‘Ghosting’. It is really simple but effective. Start with glossy white card and stamp the flowers with Versamark ink. Let it sit for a few minutes, while you score your Night of Navy card and cut a strip of Berry Burst and Powder pink. Glue these together and then stamp the sentiment for the retiring Butterfly Basics stamp set in Night of Navy ink.

Now the glossy card has had a bit of time to rest, it will still be sticky, but you can now go and ink up the sponge brayer and apply across the entire gloss card. Once you have the desired coverage, using a piece of paper towel, rub in circular motions to remove the ink from the versamark images. Cut the glossy card down to size and glue to the base card. Add the sentiment strip.

To finish it off, I added some of the Glitter enamel dots, they are so divine and add that little bit of sparkle. I also added a Berry Burst Bitty Bow.

Both of the stamp sets and the embellishments will be retiring and are only available while stocks last. Be sure to add them to your shopping cart now.

Beautiful Butterfly

Dear Crafters,

Today I share with you a quick and easy card to make for those days when you need a card in a hurry!

I have used the stunning Butterfly die in Soft Sky card, then glued it to some vellum and cut around it.

Butterfly Painted Blooms

The base card is Rose Red with a layer of Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper.

Butterfly Painted Blooms

The sentiment is stamped in Rose Red ink on the Whisper White card stock and I cut the ends with paper snips. This is added to the card with dimenionals.

How gorgeous is this butterfly with the vellum behind it?! It just looks so delicate.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope!

Sheer Perfection

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is a colour challenge JAI#254.

I have to admit when I saw these earthy tones, it wasn’t something that really appealed to me. I prefer the brighter colours, but this is what challenges are all about, challenging ourselves to try new things!

I was in need of a thank you card for one of the prep mums who called yesterday to say that my youngest had left her lunchbox at school. We were already on our way to Kids Club and I wasn’t able to go back to get it, so this lovely mum wanted to drop it to our home. I was so thankful to her for even suggesting to do that for us, so I felt the need to make her this card!

Sheer Perfection Butterfly

I have just received this gorgeous Sheer Perfection Designer Vellum Stack which is one of the four new Sale-a-bration freebies released this month. For every $90 you spend on Stampin’ Up! products you can choose from a range of bonus product and this stack is one of them!

Sheer Perfection Butterfly

The butterfly is die cut in Baked Brown Sugar and Tangelo Twist card together in the one layer.

The vellum is coloured from behind with the Stampin’ Write Markers in all four of the colours and adhered to the card with the coloured side down. I used the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker to to the stitching around the edge.

Sheer Perfection Butterfly

Be sure tho decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope helps tie it all together!

Butterfly Basics Bundle

Hello Crafters,

Today I enter a challenge at Just Add Ink. The challenge this week is an inspiration challenge JAI#253.

My immediate reaction to this image was “Wow, look at that gorgeous hot pink colour”!

I also love butterflies, so this challenge was going to be just that, butterflies, melon mambo and black.

Butterfly Basics

I love this Butterfly Basics bundle of which the stamps are photopolymer, so extremely easy to use and it has the coordinating dies. Awesome!

The base card is Black with a layer of Melon Mambo cardstock and then another layer or black, which is stamped with Craft White ink using the fern stamp. I stamped the ink off before applying to the cardstock, so that it wasn’t too white and stark.

The butterfly is the main focus of this card so it stands out in its Melon Mambo and Coastal Cabana colourings. I added 5 pearls for each antennae.

Butterfly Basics

I didn’t feel this card needed a sentiment, so I left it blank.

Be sure to decorate the inside panel of your card and even the envelope. I never send a “nude” envelope!

All Abloom Butterfly

Dear Crafters,

Today I entered a Creative Sketch Challenge as part of our Art With Heart Team.

I used the All Abloom DSP Stack and the Butterfly Basics & Butterfly Thinlits Bundle, along with Crisp Cantaloupe, Mossy Meadow & Pistachio Pudding card stock!

Butterfly Basics

I love these colours together and who doesn’t love butterflies and flowers?!!!

Butterfly Basics

I embossed the Scalloped circle with the Perfect Polka Dot TIEF and sponged the edges with the coordinating ink and a dauber. The sentiment is stamped with Mossy Meadow ink.

I also decorated the inside of the card with a strip of the same paper I used on the front and die cut another butterfly from the same DSP to adhere to the envelope!

Butterfly Basics

Don’t forget that the Butterfly Bundle is only on sale until the end of Sale-a-bration. By purchasing the bundle you save yourself 15%, and who wouldn’t want to do that?!!!!

Have a wonderful day!
