I hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend! I was going to post my Paper Pumpkin alternatives but I’m going to share those with you soon!! Today I’ll be sharing two cards from the Butterfly Brilliance Collection designed at the Stampin’ Up! home office ….
The background was created with the dies included in the bundle … it gives your card some amazing texture! The little dots you see were created by “flicking” Melon Mambo ink over the cardfront… which in Blushing Bride.
Tips/Tricks: Die cut solid butterflies to make stencil. Ink with Blushing Bride ink.
This stunning card created the background the same as the ones that I had just shared with you … one stamp and your done!! What I love about this card is they highlighted one of the beautifully colored butterflies with a simple piece of Vellum! So cool.
Tips/Tricks: Color white twine with Seaside Spray ink and sponge dauber.
I hope you enjoyed these cards as much as I did. Thank you for visiting my blog today.
First let me say “Thank You” to all of you who placed an order yesterday. Glad you took advantage of the FREE Shipping, and for those of you who will be joining me for the Butterfly Class!!
Today I have more butterflies for you … FIVE (5) Butterflies to be exact! I’m using the Butterfly Brilliance bundle using a simple layout and featuring the 2019-2021 In-Colors that will be retiring soon …
In my video that I shared with you, I used the Stamparatus to easily get great ink coverage on your cardstock, and that is what I did with each of these colors … I never removed the stamp, I just cleaned and re-inked.
Let’s begin with my favorite; the Pretty Peacock. This is such a beautifully rich color, like a jewel tone …
The card base is Basic White as is the front that I stamped on … the mat and ink colors are the In Colors. The greeting comes from the “Forever Fern” stamp set from the Forever Fern Bundle! I die cut my greeting using one of the Circle dies from the Stitched Shapes dies.
The next color is the Purple Posy, we had some trouble with the ink pads … mine is a bit juicy but I really like this soft color. I use the cardstock quite often…
I used the Metallic Mesh Ribbon behind my greeting to add some texture and a twinge of sparkle!! The little butterfly comes from the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle die set … it’s cut from the coordinating cardstock and highlighted with my Wink of Stella!!
Let’s take a look at the Terra-Cotta Tile …
Terra-Cotta Tile is such a warm color … well, it reminds me of Autumn and looks so good paired up with our other fall colors.
Now … another one of my favorites is the Seaside Spray …
I’m not sure what it is about this hue of blue but it is so soft and pretty. Look … it even compliments that Wink of Stella so perfectly! Sometimes Stella looks a little silvery, but one the Seaside Spray – it really compliments it. Now last but not least, we have the Rocco Rose …
We anticipate running out of Rococo Rose Cardstock (item 150882) in the next couple days. When this item runs out, it will show as not orderable until we are able to get more inventory. Because the 2019–2021 In Color Cardstock Assortment (item 149701) includes Rococo Rose Cardstock, this item will also be not orderable for a time. We have more inventory of Rococo Rose Cardstock coming in a few weeks; however, as this is a retiring color and the inventory we receive in a few weeks will be our final shipment, both the cardstock and cardstock assortment will only be available while supplies last.
I thought I would share a close up with you as well …
It’s always sad to see product go, but colors … Hmmm. I’m really going to miss the Pretty Peacock and Seaside Spray!! I will be using them as much as I can before they go.
One good thing … we’ll be getting a full set of 5 fabulous NEW Colors! Whoop Whoop .. can’t wait to see what they are. What colors do you think will be coming?
Thank you so much for joining me today. I’d love to hear your ideas for NEW Colors!!
Have yourself a wonderful day ~
