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.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my cards today and I’d love it if you would visit some of my fellow teammates and see their wonderful creations with the new products. Simply click the blue button below and follow the links to each blog.
