Welcome to the Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop for the Demonstrator Training Program that I am participating in with demonstrators from around the world. Today we have all made cards or projects using the Butterfly Bouquet Bundle. These products will be available March 2- May 3, 2021. There is a beautiful package of papers that will be available while supplies last...you know what that means! Order them ASAP. .After you take a peek at my card, please click on any name in the list below to see the amazing projects made by the demonstrators participating.
Here's the card that I created:
I used the Floating Frame technique to make this card. It's a technique I have been wanting to try for some time. I think the butterflies are perfect for it. You'll find pictures and instructions below to make this card.
I started with a large piece of Basic White Thick card stock. It measured 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". I used Memento black ink and my stamparatus to stamp the large, multiple butterfly stamp on this. I then colored in the butterflies. I did "google" monarch and swallowtail to get an idea for coloring them, but you could color your butterflies however you'd like. I used Stampin' Blends.
The die is one piece and cuts all six butterflies out at once. Then I placed the individual butterflies (face up) on a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of card stock. DO NOT ADHERE THEM. I moved them around until I was satisfied with how they looked. Then I covered them with a piece of Press'n Seal wrap. This holds them in place.
Next I carefully lifted the sheet of Press'nSeal with the butterflies underneath onto a cutting plate and placed a Stitched Rectangle Die on the center of the butterflies. I ran this through my Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine. I removed the center rectangle and set it aside to use on another card.
I placed the butterflies face down on my craft table and placed stamping dimensionals all over the butterflies so they would appear to float on the card front. I removed the backings and then flipped it carefully on the 5 1/4" x 4" piece of white card stock that I arranged them on earlier.
A few of the butterflies may hang over the edge of the mat. Just trim those pieces off with your cutter or scissors. I stamped my sentiment (from Happy Thoughts stamp set) in the center of the butterflies with Memento Ink. That layer was then adhered to a piece of Mango Melody card stock measuring 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" and then adhered to a Balmy Blue card base. (The card base was 4 1/4" x 11" scored at 5 1/4". )
I love the look of the floating butterflies. Here's another shot of the card I made as well as one made by die cutting the butterflies from the Butterfly Bijou DSP.
I hope you will "hop" on to a few of the blogs listed below and check out projects made by fellow demonstrators in the training program. Below the list of names you'll find photos/links for the items I've used to make this card.
