Butterfly Bouquet

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

Butterfly Bouquet uses products from the Butterfly Brilliance Collection released in March. I love the crispness of the White on White with just some colour with the leaves and Butterfly.

This card was created along with a Tutorial for my March Newsleter.

The beautiful Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper is only available until 3rd May ( 2 more days) but you could easily swap the DSP Butterfly out for a Stamped and coloured or die cut Butterfly from the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle that is now available in the Annual Catalogue.

The frame was created with the Ornate Frame Dies and the Stitched Rectangles Dies by placing the Stitched Rectangle inside the Frame die and cutting together.

The frame looks like its floating above the mat and this can be achieved by using the Foam Adhesive Strips.

This tutorial was given to those that follow me through my Newsletter. If you would like to receive my Newsletter plus the monthly Free Tutorial Click on the link below.

Sailing Home by Stampin' Up! Coloured using Blending Brushes and masking

For this card I used the Sailing Home Stamp set and coordinating dies Smooth Sailing. The ocean was created by masking with a torn piece of paper and using the Blending Brushes to create waves. To create the sun I made a mask by cutting a circle using the Layering Circle Dies and brushing the colour on.

After creating the background I stamped on the sailing boat image using Memento Black Ink and coloured it in with Blends- Soft Suede and Poppy Parade

Butterfly Brilliance – Watercolour

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

My card today I have used the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle by Stampin’ Up! ® to create my card. Each of the butterflies carefully coloured using Stampin’ Up! Classic Stampin’ ink Refill with Gold splater highlighting the central butterfly.

Butterfly Brilliance Bundle by Stampin' Up!. Watercoloured on Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper

How to make this card…

Products Used (products link to On-Line store at the end of blog post)-

  • Butterfly Brilliance Bundle
  • Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper
  • Basic White Cardstock
  • Basic Black Cardstock
  • Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder
  • Gilded Leafing
  • Reinkers – Pacific Point, Night of Navy, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso.
  • WaterPainters
  • Stamparatus
  • Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine
  • Multi-pupose Glue
  • Dimensionals

Card Measurements

  • Card Base Basic White – 10.5 x 29.9cm, score at 14.9cm
  • Card Mat Basic Black – 10 x 14.4cm
  • Card Front Basic White – 9.7 x 14.1cm
  • Card Insert Basic White – 10 x 14.4cm

Instructions –

  • Cut all required cardstock, score and fold card base
  • Run Basic White card front through Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine using the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder.
  • Adhere the Basic White card front to the Basic Black card mat using Multi-purpose Glue or Stampin’ Seal.
  • Adhere matted card front to the Basic White card base using Multi-purpose Glue or Stampin’ Seal.
  • Stamp the Butterfly images onto Fluid 100 Watercolour Paper using Stazon Black ink Pad. Stazon is a Acid Free, permanent ink for stamping images to watercolour. Stazon can also be used for non-porus surfaces like Window sheets. To make the stamping of the butterflies easy and to make sure to get a clear image I used the Stamparatus, reinking and stamping a couple of times. I added the silicon sheet under the watercolour paper to get a little extra height and help get a good ink coverage.
  • Once the Stazon ink has dried you can start water colouring using the Water Painter and reinkers.
  • Water colour the butterflies
    • Work on one butterfly at a time
    • give the butterfly a light wash of water over the top before adding colour.
    • Add light layers of colour building up to the colour you want.
    • Start with the lightest colour and add darker colour as highlights.
    • Let each colour dry slightly before adding more or another colour
    • Let butterflies dry completely.
  • On a plate mix a small amount of multi-purpose glue and water to get a slightly runny consistency. Using a old paint brush lightly splatter the watered down glue onto the large butterfly. Let the glue dry until tacky. Add Gilded Leaf to the tacky glue and rub away the excess with a soft brush.
  • Die cut the butterflies using the coordinating die from the bundle.
  • Add dimensionals to the back of the butterflies down the length of body and attach to the card front
  • Add insert to the inside of the card.

Hand-Penned Suite

Hi and welcome today to my Blog.

On Friday on my Facebook Live I focused on the Hand-Penned Petals Suite by Stampin’ Up! which will be released when the NEW Annual Catalogue is launched in May.

The products in the Hand-Penned Suite 155503 are-

  • Hand-Petal Petals Bundle 155492, Hand-Penned Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set and Penned Flower Dies
  • Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper 155499
  • Genial Gems 155500
Haned-Penned by Stampin' Up! Products from Pre-order 2021-22 Catalogue

The Hand-Penned Petals Stamps are a Photopolymer Stamp, it is made up of a outline stamp and a filler stamp. The filler stamp is a Distinktive Stamp which creates different opacities in a single stamped image. Below is a great tip on using this type of stamp.

Taken from a previous Catalogue.

When stamping the filler stamp you will notice the stamp is not exact in size to the outline…that’s OK, it’s the way it is supposed to be.
