Watercolor Wonder Butterflies …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m excited to share one more way to use the watercolor backgrounds … I’ll show you how to make Watercolor Wonder Butterflies. Who said these beautiful backgrounds can only be used as backgrounds? Today I’m going to pull them up center stage on our card ….

I’m using the Brilliant Wings Dies to create these fun looks … 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.

Funny, but I always think of my Mom when I use or stamp with butterflies … she loved them and had them all over her house ❤

Beautiful Butterfly Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~ Hope you had a great weekend! I spent mine cleaning my stamp room by pulling all retiring stamps, dies, folders … you name it. I love being more organized and knowing that I can’t grab a “retired” set. One of my faves that I was happy to see carry over into the new catalog is the Brilliant Wings and Butterfly Brilliance Stamp Set.

How about inking up those beautiful butterflies in Night of Navy and stamping them onto Balmy Blue cardstock (I like using the Stamparatus here) and then die cutting it with the Rectangle Stitched dies before mounting it onto your card base.

Stamp another set of butterflies with Momento ink onto Basic White … then pick out your favorite butterfly and color it with Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Stampin’ Blends… die cut and mount over vellum. That just draws your eye directly to the beautifully colored butterfly – now that’s a focal point!!

Thank you for dropping by today …

Have a beautiful Monday!
