Hi! Today I am showcasing the Butterfly Basics stamp set that is retiring at the end of May. This is such a pretty set! For both cards, I stuck with Island Indigo, Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip for my color palette.
For this card, I did stamp off for the Island Indigo stripe on the left as well as the leaves stamped in Soft Sky. I also did generational stamping for the leaves – ie, I stamped the leaves twice before reinking the stamp. Linen thread was wrapped around the hand 3 times, then twisted into a figure 8 before being adhered to the back of the butterfly. I love the layered look of the butterfly. A few rhinestones down the center finishes it off.
The dimensions for the card stock are: Soft Sky base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. Chocolate Chip mat – 4″ x 5 1/4″. Whisper White layer – 3 3/4″ x 5″.
I also made this card using the same color palette and stamp set:
For this card, I used a large post-it note to create a mask for the stamped panel. I sponged Soft Sky along the left hand edge and then inked the leaves in Soft Sky, stamping off once, before stamping over the sponged area. After stamping was complete, I removed the post-it note pad. The butterflies were created in the same manner as in the first card. To add interest to this card, I added two thin strips of Chocolate Chip cardstock behind the main panel in a diagonal fashion.
The dimensions for this card are: Base – Thick Whisper White – 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″. Chocolate Chip mat – 4″ x 5 1/4″. Whisper White mat – 3 13/16″ x 5 1/16. Chocolate Chip strips – 3/16″ x 4 1/4″ (trim off the ends that overhang the panel). Chocolate Chip mat – 3 7/16″ x 4 11/16. Whisper White panel – 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.
