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 ❤

Watercolor Background & Silhouettes

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another card highlighting the multicolored watercolor background I shared with you, but that’s not the best part … I’m going to pair it with a brand new bundle!! It’s also a great way to show you another use for those beautiful watercolor backgrounds you’ll be creating … because once you get started, you are going to create a lot of them because it’s so much fun.

Let’s take a good look at the new Scary Cute bundle and how it allows me to use my background in a new way ….

First, this cute bundle has this fun frame … I chose to “pop it up” with dimensionals. It is an open frame so you can put your scardy cat in it, the cute little house or stamp any one of the kids to fit inside (so many options!). I also have enough of my watercolor background left to die cut a moon and a greeting! Three different ways to use your creation … sweet!

You may also see a bit of tomorrows watercolor paper behind the windows of the house ….

All of these dies (except the moon) come in the bundle … I haven’t even played too much with the stamp set yet, just used it to stamp my greeting today. I hope that you liked the different ways to use your “watercolor background” and the first peek into the Scary Cute bundle. I have more Scary Cute to share with you in future posts.

Thanks so much for joining me today.

Have a great day ~
