Purely Butterfly

I made this card for Beate’s weekend sketch. As usual, it was a stunner of a sketch – so simple yet so many possibilities! Her blog is so much fun to drool over!

I knew going in that I wanted to use this Butterfly Scroll stamp that I got from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. I love it! I’m thrilled it happened to work so perfectly with the sketch, lol 🙂

I used my new Brilliance inkpads – Rocket Red Gold, which has the most gorgeous gold sheen to it ever, and Pearlescent Poppy. I am so in love with this whole line of inks! What took me so long??

The dp is from Basic Grey’s Perhaps line. I used two different Inkadinkado stamps – one wood mounted image (the butterfly/scroll/doodle on the Whisper White) and two different images from the clear stamps set Garden Assortment. I used my Martha edge punch to trim the dp.

Stamps: Inkadinkado – Butterfly, Garden Assortment (clear stamps)
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Regal Rose, Basic Grey – Perhaps
Ink: Brillinace – Pearlescent Poppy, Rocket Red Gold
Accessories: polka dot organdy ribbon, Martha Stewart edge punch

Live and Laugh!

Sorry for the lack of updates – it has been just plain crazy busy lately, and it hasn’t left me much time for stamping. Hopefully I can get all caught up this weekend!!!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago. I based it on the Sketch Challenge. I was excited that I remembered to bust out a PapertreyInk set that I never use — the new organizational redo of my craft room is really working for me!!

I used DCWV Far East dp, and my Butterfly Kisses set from Papertrey Ink. The butterfly was done in several steps: 1. Stamped outline in Timber Brown Stazon 2. Inked up the solid middle stamp and kissed it to another one, resulting in a *lined* effect 3. Stamped the small swirls butterfly in another color 4. Colored with my Sakura glitter pen to bring out color an highlighted the *lined* effect. I used my bone folder to curl the wings, and just adhered the middle to the panel.
