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.

What do you think?  Let me know by leaving a comment below.

A Rainbow of “Butterflies”

Second post for today

Hello everyone! I’m back again with another post for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes!

For this card, I wanted to display Stampin’ Up! new In Colors and other products in a fun way.

Take a look:

A little something cute

I used Stampin’ Up!’s Elegant Butterfly Punch to punch out a butterfly from each of the new colors.

The sentiment comes from a new stamp set called Something To Say Wood Mount Stamp Set and I stamped it using the Lost Lagoon Ink.

I layered two different pieces of the new Moonlight DSP Stack on top of the Whisper White cardstock.

For the finishing touches, I added rhinestones to he butterflies.

Very easy to make.

So tell me, what do you think.

WOW! What Color Is That?

Hello everyone!  I’m back again today, this time for the Muse Challenge #73.  The Muse for this week is Beverley Brown!

Take a look at Beverley Brown’s card:

MuseNow take a look at my card:

Sending Happy Thoughts front

 I wasn’t sure which picture I wanted to use so I decided to add both of them.

Sending Happy Thoughts

Beverley created a CAS card that I love. I love the simplicity of her card.

Beverley used multicolor in her butterflies, so I wanted my flowers to have that same multicolor look.  I used the baby wipe technique to create my multicolor flowers.

Then I stamped my sentiment with the same multicolor ink.

I had fun creating this card.  Soooo, what do you think?

In any case , I’m here today playing along with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday’s Challenge. Their theme is Stencil It.
