SUO96 Bees, Birds and Butterflies!!
Time for the new SUO96 SUO-Only Challenge is “Birds, Bees andButterflies” and I decided to incorporate the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC301Sketch Challenge.
I hope you will have the time to visit and check out the rest of the fantastic Design Team projects at both sites and if you have a chance, using your Stampin’ Up! Only products, come join in on the fun!
To create this project:
Using My Digital Studio (MDS), position the flower stamp brush set from Springtime Hello along with the bee (of course, if you have the stamp set you can stamp as well with Basic Black Classic Ink- I decided to enlarge the images so I used MDS).
Print out onto Whisper White cardstock, color using Stampin’ Write markers- Island Indigo for the flower petals, So Saffron for the flower centers and bee, Pear Pizzazz for the stems and Sahara Sand for the shadows. Use a Chalk Marker to create highlights on the flowers and bee wings.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Ovals Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image and cut another oval the same size from Basic Black cardstock, cutting the black oval in half for the frame. Position the black frame behind the focal image oval, use a Sponge Dauber to apply Crumb Cake Classic Ink and the Color Spritzer Tool along with a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to distress a bit more.
Ink the En Francais background stamp using Crumb Cake Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and stamp again onto a piece of Soft Sky cardstock (without re-inking). Use the Big Shot™ with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss both pieces.
Use the Distressing Tool to distress the edges and sponge Crumb Cake Classic Ink over the edges. Adhere to the Basic Black card base per the sketch, add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon strip and mount the focal image oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the sentiment from Express Yourself using Basic Black Classic Ink and cut out using the Big Shot™ with the Bitty Banner Framelits™ cutting another banner from Basic Black cardstock as well.
Cut the Basic Black banner in half and adhere behind the sentiment on both ends. Use the Color Spritzer Tool with the Stampin’ Write Basic Black marker to add distressing and with the Sponge Dauber apply Crumb Cake Classic Ink. Add to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Stamp the butterfly from Papillon Potpourri using Basic Black Classic Ink onto Island Indigo cardstock. Punch out using the Elegant Butterfly Punch and mount onto another butterfly punched from Basic Black cardstock.
Mount to the card front and add Pearls to finish off the card.
