Jamaican Butterfly…..

Hello everyone!!  I’m here with Muse Challenge #84.  This week Muse was Therese Calvird and I have to say her card is ABSOLUTELY Beautiful!

Take a look at Therese’s card:

Butterfly Triangles

When I say it I was taken back.  Her butterfly was so pretty and I love how she broke it up.

I still can’t figure how she did it.  It looks like embossing paste but how did she stamp on that.  Then I thought she stamped the image and then use her die cut to cut the panel.  That made more sense but still I was intrigued.

So I decided to to give this card a try.

On August 8th, 2014 I posted a picture of a Jamaican butterfly that I fell in love with on Instragram, wishing all Jamaican’s Happy Independence Day.  I also mentioned that that butterfly would be my next butterfly card inspiration.

Here is the picture of the butterfly:

So how did I create this card?  Here you go:

1. I stamped Papertrey Ink Life is Beautiful large butterfly in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on my Neenah Solar White card panel.

2. I colored the butterfly with Copic markers G28 and Y13.

3.  I used Papertrey Ink Stripes Horizontal Cover Plate and cut the card panel.

4. I used Papertrey Ink Wet Paint to stamp my sentiment on one of the horizontal die cuts.

5. I carefully placed the strip back in place but lifting some of them with foam adhesive.

6. I had a couple of Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello die cut already so I adhered two together for thickness.  I use glue and added it to the front of my card.

7. I added Clear Wink of Stella to the butterfly and the hello.

8. I added Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins and Stampin’ Up! Rhinestones to the card to spice it up.

So what do you think?  Did my card pass this Muse test?

Please let me know!

Huh..Black Butterfly?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #170: Masking with Die Cuts.

How cool is this effect! What you have to do is cut masks out of dies that have matching stamps. You create an easy one-layer card that will be striking.

Have you ever seen a black butterfly?  They are just as pretty as the colorful ones.

So for those of you who know me, knows that I’m going to draw for my beautiful butterfly stamp and die set.  I have to say this is my favorite set.  It works with everything.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Butterfly

Here are the steps to creating this beautiful one layer card.

1. I cut my butterfly out using my Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful die and some Inkadinkado masking paper.

2. I place the masked butterfly down on my cardstock where I wanted it to be.

3. I sponged Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight, Mellon Mambo, and Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin’ Pad with sponge daubers.

4. I removed the masking to reveal the colorless butterfly surrounded by the beautiful background.

5. I stamp the butterfly detail in Versafine Onyx Black Ink using Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful stamp set.

6. Then I stamped the sentiment using Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint stamp set using the Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I decided to use the black ink for my butterfly and sentiment so that they will really pop out of the colorful background.

Forever Elegant…

Hello everyone!  It’s been 4 days since my last post.  I’ve been so busy that I haven’t been able to sit and talk to all of you.

I’m here today with CAS(E) this Sketch #81.  They have done pairing up with Fusion this week for an amazing joint challenge that is very pretty and elegant to me.

I decided that I wanted my card to be elegant and very clean and simple.  I’m so glad to see a butterfly in this sketch because PTI Life is Beautiful die is my favorite die to work with.  The butterfly is very elegant to me.

Take a look at my interpretation of the sketch:

So what do you think?  I just love how my card came out.  The gold is and white looks great to me.
