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.
If you’ve followed my blog for a while it will be no surprise to you that the first image I wanted to stamp with out of the new Blended seasons stamp set was that gorgeous large floral image. Anyone know what flower it is because I don’t recognise it?
I chose a classic colour combination of Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive as I wanted to use the Stampin’ Blends and I haven’t order the new colours yet (they’re on their way).
Adding a layer of Light Pool Party all around the stamped image really helps it to pop off the page. I added a few pearls to the centres of the flowers to add some subtle extra detail.
I decorated the inside of the card with an extra coloured flower but kept it sentiment free so I can write my own message.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this first look at the Blended Seasons stamp set, pop back soon for more ideas with this set.
For today’s project I have another card using the Painted Harvest stamp set, I was inspired by looking at Poinsettia’s and was originally going to make a Christmas card, however when I added the Pear Pizzazz card base I felt it would be better as a birthday card.
