Beautiful Butterflies …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m excited to share two fun technique cards that are highlighting the “retiring” Brilliant wings dies. These dies come in handy so many times for a quick card … and if you join me tonight on my Facebook LIVE, I’ll show you another 2 ways (or more) to use these!!

The first card show a fun way to use watercolor backgrounds … On the small butterfly, I just cut it out of the watercolor background created in the video. The larger butterfly was die cut, and the background was trimmed to accent the butterfly and give it a 3-D look. I popped up the butterfly by cutting a small piece out of the Stampin’ Dimensonals.

My greeting comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and is stamped with the Rock -n- Roll technique. I inked up the stamp with Parakeet Party first, and then rolled the stamp in the Bermuda Bay. I choose that color because the Parakeet Party and Bermuda Bay used in the watercolor background change color a little when blended together.

The greeting has a Basic Black mat as do the butterflies and were mounted onto my Coastal Cabana front that I embossed with the 3-D Fern embossing folder. I added Wink of Stella to my butterflies before mounting onto the black mat. To complete my card I added the Mat Black Dots to create additional depth and texture and to draw your eye around the entire card.

My second card I used the “Masking Paper” to create the card front. I cut out butterflies from Brilliant Wings out of the Masking paper and then adhered it directly onto the Linen paper (retiring).

Then with alcohol in my Spritzer and about 5 drops of Bermuda Bay ink … I spritzed the color onto the Linen paper. The alcohol helps to dry the ink faster, and what it leaves behind when you remove the “butterfly masks” is a soft beautiful “dyed” Linen paper.

I invited you to join me tonight on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page and watch me LIVE at 6:30 pm to see how I use these amazing butterfly dies, and I’ll also be highlighting some amazing designer paper!!

Thank You for hanging out with me today! Enjoy your day ~
