SUO70- Friendly Butterflies
The SUO70Challenge is Anything Butterflies and we welcome all entries using Stampin’ Up! Only products! So pull out those butterfly stamps, punches, embosslits, dies and as in my case, My Digital Studio to create a project and come share with us!!
I decided to use My Digital Studio along with some of the new 2013-2015 In-Colors to create another card- I love the Swallowtail stamp brush and the fact that you can "re-size" the image!
To create this “hybrid” card:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS), insert the Swallowtail image onto your 8.5 x 11 blank page and re-size into three different sizes. Also insert the sentiment from Friendly Words and print out onto Whisper White cardstock.
Carefully cut out each butterfly by hand and use a Sponge Dauber with the 2013-2015 New In-Colors (Coastal Cabana and Crisp Cantaloupe) along with So Saffron to pounce color onto the butterflies.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Apothecary Accents Framelit™ to create the label detail from Whisper White and Basic Black (cut the Basic Black layer in half vertically to layer behind the frame). Emboss with the Big Shot™ and soon to be retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (I will miss this one so much!).
Using the Big Shot™, position an Oval Framelit™ over the sentiment and a piece of Basic Black cardstock and cut both at the same time. Adhere the sentiment to the Basic Black layer allowing a bit of the black to show as a frame.
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Fancy Fan Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Coastal Cabana cardstock.
Using Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Ink, repeatedly stamp the floral image from Bloomin’ with Kindness onto a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock.
Layer the embossed/stamped pieces onto a piece of Basic Black and layer again onto the Whisper White card base. Add a scrap strip of Basic Black cardstock to hide the seams of the Crisp Cantaloupe and Coastal Cabana layers.
Add the Antique Brads to the focal layer (use the 1/16” Hand Held Punch or Paper Piercer Tool to punch the holes for the brads). Position the sentiment and focal layer onto the card and add the butterflies/pearls to finish off the card.
