Butterflies

Hi there. I have a couple of cards to share today using the same Simon Say Stamp ‘Beautiful Butterflies‘ stamp and die set.

The card on the left is my version of the slim line card. I stamped the butterfly in Distress Oxide ‘Peacock Feathers’ for a solid impression. I was going to colour the white parts in – but decided it looked good as it was.

The layers are using Mama Elephant slim line dies with the white water-colour piece splattered with the same blue Distress Oxide and I think Fossilized Amber – wanting a teal and yellow splattering going on – and a Lawn fawn grey card as a contrast layer.

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, which I chose to give someone some encouragement with a recent promotion.

The second card:

I stamped the images with Lawn Fawn inks – Carrot and Fake Tan – which give fabulous coverage, by the way – then cut them out with the matching die set.

The circle is a piece of a stenciled background I made a week or so ago with Lawn Fawn ‘Starry Sky‘ stencil and white paste, die cut with a stitched circle die.

The sentiment is from a magazine freebie, and stamped onto a spare piece of water-colour card which I splattered the same two Lawn Fawn inks onto, cut into a strip, then that strip cut with the same circle die so it was the correct length, and had some stitching to it.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  1. Both of your cards are so cheery and lovely. The slimline shows off that perfectly stampped butterfly quite nicely. Your second card is so eye catching with those bold yellow flutterbys roaming around that circle. Love the details of the embossing on the circular panel. Thanks so for playing along with us at Twofer Card Challenge.

  3. Both of your cards are CAS and absolutely lovely! The butterfly image you used is so intricate and worked perfectly with the simple backgrounds of the slimline card and also the circle die cut with the lovely addition of the stars!
