For today’s card I’ve used a different sized card base so I could fit five butterflies on and show more of the rainbow effect I created. This card base is from a piece of card measuring 21cm x 14cm, scored at 7cm on the narrow side, giving a tall narrow card similar to the Narrow Notecards that we used to carry.
To create the rainbow effect I used the Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends and coloured a rainbow across some Whisper White cardstock.
I then stamped five butterflies from Butterfly Gala across the rainbow, positioning them so each butterfly had more than one colour on its wings. I then punched them out using the Butterfly Duet Punch and added a black body to each butterfly.
To finish off the card I stamped a greeting at the bottom of the card and then attached each butterfly with a Stampin’ Dimensional. A final florish was to add antenna to each of the butterflies.
Hope you enjoyed this project and if you’ve got your own collection of Stampin’ Blends you can create rainbow butterflies in any colour combination.
Today I’m sharing a quick and simple card made using the Butterfly Gala Bundle which is back in stock, so grab it now. For the background I’ve added in a stamp from Touches of Textures, I’m sad this is leaving as its sucj a versatile set for adding a little something to a card.
I added three different splats for the background using So Saffron, Blushing Bride and Mint Macaron.
I stamped three matching butterflies on seperate cardstock and then punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch. I stamped some antenna for the butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then added the greeting to bottom of the card.
To finish the card I attache the butterflies with Stampin’ Dimensionals so the card has some dimension.
I love how this crad turned out, so simple but so beautiful too.
After I created my trio of cards for the Pootler’s team Spring/Summer blog hop I had this background piece made from the Crackle Paint stamp set in Gorgeous Grape so I decided to create another butterfly card.
I added a layer of vellum to the front of my Gorgeous Grape layer as it was a little over powering in such a bright colour and my butterflies were lost.
I used the Stitched scallop boarder die from the be Mine Stitched Framelits to create a banner across the card for my sentiment.
The three punched butterflies created from the two-step stamps in Butterfly Gala finish the card off and add even more dimension with their wings.
Today I’m taking part in the Pootler’s team blog hop showcasing our favourite products from the new Spring Summer catalogue. There’s a lot to love in this catalogue and it was hard to decide what to share with you today. I decided on my favourite bundle Butterfly Gala, which contains a great stamp set and the best butterfly fly punch I think Stampin’ Up! has come out with, with two gorgeous butterflies. I’ve paired this bundle with the new Crackle Paint background, which has brought back many happy memories of playing with crackle paint as a kid, so I’m glad we now have the same effect but much quicker.
The first card I made was in Highland Heather, a colour I haven’t used much but has created a lovely soft card.
For the next card I brightened it up by using Lovely Lipstick, this was my favourite card for highlighting how good the Crackle Paint background is.
For my final card I used Flirty Flamingo just so I could add some of the lovely new 1/8″ sheer Flirty Flamingo ribbon from the All My Love Ribbon Combo Pack, which I adds a lovely soft feeling to the card.
