OOOh – Stampin’ Up! has a preorder available to demonstrators of a stamp collection called Butterfly Brilliance Collection – and of course it features butterflies… yeah, who would guess that! :O) My set arrived and I dug right in… here’s what I created.
Two of the butterflies on this card were die cut from one of the papers, as I mentioned earlier could be done. The third butterfly is much more detailed and is cut from Vellum – so delicate and lovely. And please notice the little splotches of holes in the background DSP – that is another of the dies in the set.
One of the neat things about this collection is the Designer Series Papers – and one of them fits the die perfectly! Another cool thing is the outline of the butterflies is all one die but cuts several individual butterflies – similar to the Many Messages dies. Here’s the stamp set and the dies also.
Isn’t this bundle fabulous? If you join my team NOW – you can get this as part of your starter kit :O) Just sayin’… you may do that here. Back to putting this card together…
- Bermuda Bay card stock is the card base
- Die cut at least three ‘splotches’ using a die from the Brilliant Wings dies from the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP. Add this layer of DSP to cover entire front of card, adhering with liquid glue
- Layer another panel of the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 to a slightly larger panel of Bermuda Bay card stock – adhering with liquid glue. put on dimensionals and add to card front.
- Die cut butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP that matches the line-up of the dies. This will give you six cut butterflies!
- Put dimensionals on one of the butterflies and adhere to front. Add other butterfly with liquid glue.
- Die cut the detail butterfly out of Vellum and adhere either with liquid glue or a glue dot. HINT: If using liquid glue, cover the entire center body with the glue, smoothing it. With the entire center body covered, the glue does not seem to show.
- Stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink on a strip of Bermuda Bay, cover with White Embossing powder and heat to set. Attach with liquid glue and a dimensional at the far right end (for balance)
- Add three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins and the card front is done!
For the inside…
- Stamp the butterfly in Smoky Slate ink on a panel of Basic White card stock.
- Adhere to the inside panel and the card is complete…
For the envelope…
- Cover the envelope flap with Butterfly Bijou 6×6 DSP using liquid glue, trim to fit
- Stamp the design from Posted For You stamp set in Smoky Slate ink and color with Blends: Magenta Madness, So Saffron & Just Jade. HINT: when coloring on an envelope with Blends, be certain there is a large scrap in the envelope so it does not bleed through. VOILA! Card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post.
