Black Brick Butterfly….try saying that really fast! There isnt even any black bricks on this card as they’re pink but I liked the title. Again I’ve been playing with the Brilliant Wings Dies, my new favourite product for sure. Today I’ve used the brick effect die (hence the title) to create part of my background. Ilove how you can see the mix of watercolour pinks through the bricks from the designer paper behind.
Here’s a close up of how much detail the large butterfly has, so beautiful! I’ve sat the butterfly on a Stitched Circle die in Blushing Bride and added the Happy Birthday greeting from Speacial Someone in Magenta Madness.
A few Magenta Madness Enamel Dots finish the card off, I seem to be putting these on every card I make at the moment.
Today’s cards are made with the Brilliant Wings and the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Paper Pack. I love when Stampin’ Up! bring out designer paper which has coordinating dies as it makes creating so easy. Whats great about these products is the outline die in the set cuts out six complete butterflies from one sheet of paper in one cut, or if you’re using the stamp set you can simply stamp and cut, meaning you can very quickly end up with a desk full of butterflies like me!
Both background papers also come from the Butterfly Bijou paper pack, I love all the pastel shades and watercolour effects on these sheets so much I’ve ordered a couple more of these paper packs.
The greeting for both cards comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set and the die comes from the Painted Labels die set.
A little Misty Moonlight Twill Ribbon and a few Enamel Dots and the cards are done. I’m really loving how great Misty Moonlight and Just Jade look together on these cards.
Today I’m sharing two cards made with the Brilliant Wings Dies. I love the intricate detail of these dies, you really don’t need much else to make a great card.
I’ve added some designer paper from the Fine Art Floral collection to add a subtle background. I stamped my greeting on a label cut from the Tasteful Labels dies. A little ribbon from the Playing With Pattern Combo Pack finishes off the card.
I’ve used Purple Posy on this card as I’m trying to use it up before it retires next month. If you love this colour then now is the time to be placing that order and stocking up. I can’t wait to find out what our new in-colours will be!
