StainGlass Butterfly

StainGlass Butterfly

This adorable stained glass butterfly was made with all new 2017-2019 Stampin’ Up! new In-Colors.   Love the new colors and they will be available on June 1st for order.   Love the stained glass effect.   I got that idea from my stamping buddy Lori Crowley at a group meeting.  I just love that I can go to these group meetings and get new ideas.     Ask me how you can go to these meeting also to get all kinds of inspiration.

  1. Base Cardstock is Fresh Fig   8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Score at 4 1/4
  2. Next Layer is from our new Fresh Florals Designer Series paper which includes all the new In Colors.   Cut this at 5 1/4 by 4 and used the piece that had Tranquil Tide.
  3. Top layer is Powder Pink which I embossed with the Fluttering Embossing Folder    4 3/4 x 3 1/2
  4. Using the Bold Butterfly Framelets, I cut the butterfly image in Whisper White and then with the Butterflies Thinlits I used the middle size and cut that out using the Tranquil Tide Cardstock.  I adhered those together using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen  (Perfect for adhering small embellishments, glitter and delicate paper cutouts)
  5. Now you just need to color the inside of butterfly.  I used all 5 of the in-colors to color in the white spaces.  I then used my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush to put some shine on those colored places.   On the center of the Butterfly, I used Enamel Shapes.
  6. For the words, I used a new Stampin’UP! stamp set, Tabs for Everything.  This set comes with 53 stamps of words and images.  Great set to have for all kinds of scrapbooking, journaling, cards, etc.    I cut out the smaller oval of the  Stitched Shapes in Whisper White to stamp my image on and then the next size up for the background using the Fresh Fig.
  7. Assembly and you are all done.  A lot of different steps but does not take that long.

Get Well Wishes GDP074

 

get-well-wishes-gdp074

Another Card I created using a Global Design project layout.  I find it so easy to use a design already created then i just put my own colors, papers, stamps, etc and come up with a completely different card.     Here’s the image that I copied.

This card can be any greeting you would like.  That’s what I like about it…any occasion.

Supplies I used are all from our Stampin’ Up! Catalogs

  1. Base Card is a 8 1/2 x 11  piece of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock cut in half to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 folder
  2. Next layer is piece of Sahara Sand Card Stock  5 1/4 x 4
  3. Top layer is our Blooms & Bliss Designer Series paper  5 x 3 3/4
  4. Next is the Scalloped Tag Topper punch.  I cut that piece of Rich Razzleberry Card Stock to 2 x 3.  This size fits perfectly in the Topper Punch.
  5. Layer that with Whisper White Card Stock using Layering Ovals Framelits.  I sponged around the edged with Rich Razzleberry ink to give it some depth. Then attach to Topper Punch piece
  6. Now for that gorgeous Butterfly.  I stamped the butterfly using a stamp from Stampin’ Up!s Papillon Popourri Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry and then immediately covered with Clear Embossing Powder and heated with my heating tool.  Probably does not show too well on Card but this gives the butterfly a nice shiny look.   Punch that out with Stampin’Up!s Elegant Butterfly punch.  To finish the butterfly, I added some Rhinestones colors with a permanent marker.
  7. Finish this off by wrapping some Gold Meallic Thread around fingers, till you get a few strands then using a glue dot attach to your oval white piece.  Then place the butterfly on top with a Stampin’ Up! dimensional.
  8. Now just stamp your greeting on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Rich Razzleberry ink and punch out with the Classic Label Punch.

Now for images of the products I used.  Just clink on the item # and you will go directly to my online store to see images.

Any question, please contact me at eileenfrost@msn.com or just reply to this post

Papillon Potpourri GDP#045

Papillon Potpourri GDP#045

Color Challenge for GDP#045 using Black, Smoky Slate and Melon Mambo.   Great color combination and really simple card to make.

  1. Cut Stampin’ UP! Black Cardstock  8 1/2 x 11 in half and then fold….this is your black card base. Cut a piece of Stampin’ UP! Melon Mambo 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to your Base using Mono Adhesive. Cut a piece of Stampin’ UP! Smoky Slate 3 3/4 x 5 and this is the piece we will stamp on.
  2. Using the swirly image from Stampin’ UP! Tin of Cards, stamp the sides and top of the Smoky Slate Card Stock.
  3. Hard to see but I clear embossed the Words Thank You from the Stamp Set Tin of Cards.  To do this, I stamped using Black Staz On Ink, then added Clear Embossing Powder and used my Heat Tool until the Black dried and gave it the shinny image.
  4. Next on a piece of Whisper White Scrap Cardstock, I did the same process, clear embossing, only using Stampin’ UP! Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set.
  5. Then colored these using a Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker.    (I used the same technique in the Petite Pedals Card Posted on 07/17/16.
  6. I then stamped the image on my Smoky Slate Cardstock and put the finished butterflies on with dimensional

Bold Butterfly with Thoughtful Banners FMS243

bold butterflies with thoughtful banners fms243

This card I just created is for the “Freshly Made sketches.blogspot.ca” challenge.  Love the layout and what gorgeous Designer Paper.  Ladies are coming for Club Saturday so I’m sure they will love this also

Directions for the Bold Butterfly Thinlet with the Thoughtful Banners from Stampin’ UP!

  1. Cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum (8 1/2 x 11) in half and then fold in half for your base card.  Cut a piece of Blushing Bride, 5 1/4 x 4 and then cut a piece of the Designer Series Paper – Blooms & Bliss 5 x 3 3/4
  2. With a sizable piece of Whisper White Cardstock and Mint Macaron scrap paper, cut out your Butterfly’s using the Bold Butterfly Framelits with White and the Butterflies Thinlits with the Mint Macaron.     Note:  even tho I didn’t use for this card, there is a great stamp set ‘Watercolor Wings’ that goes perfectly with both the Butterfly Thinlets and Frames.    See link to image below
  3. Stamp a greeting from the Thoughtful Banners Stamp Set,  I used Missing You, on a scrap piece of Mint Macaron using Mint Macaron Ink Pad.  Punch out using Stampin’ UP!s new Classic Label Punch
  4. Assemble by laying your Blushing Bride on the Sweet Sugarplum, then layer the Designer Paper, Blooms & Bliss on Blushing Bride.
  5. I used glue dots to adhere the butterflies but first I used a dabber with Mint Macaron Ink to highlight around the edges of both pieces.  Layer the decorative Mint Macaron on top of the White Butterfly and use those glue dots.  I used Stampin’ UP! dimensional to adhere the ‘Missing You’  I also used our Basic Pearls on the Butterfly…nice touch!
  6. Don’t forget to do something on the inside, I’d use white or Blushing Bride cardstock.

You’ve Got This Embossing Technique

color challange with sandi.png

Hi Stampers,

This card was created for a color challenge that Sandi MacIver of http://www.stampinwithsandi.com posted on March 24th.    The color combination was Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo and Wisteria Wonder.  Great color combination and I’ve incorporated all three in the card above.  I also used a embossing technique so we could get double the fun.  Directions for card as follows:

  1. Using Stampin’ Up!s stamp set, ‘You’ve Got This’, I stamped the image in the background in Wisteria Wonder Classic Stampin’ Pad on a piece of Whisper White Card Stock cut to  5 x 3 3/4
  2. Then with Stampin’ Write Markers, Melon Mambo and Old Olive, I colored the flower and leaf image and stamped over the image we just stamped.
  3. Immediately, I poured Clear Embossing Powder over the flower and leaf image and then used my heat tool until my images were dry and shiny.
  4. Stamp a saying from the ‘You’ve Got this’ using a  Melon Mambo Ink Pad.
  5. On a scrap piece of Whisper White Card Stock, stamp a butterfly from ‘Popillon Potpourri’ stamp set using  Bermuda Bay Ink Pad.  Punch out with Bitty Butterfly Punch and set aside.
  6. Now to assembly.   I first cut a piece of Melon Mambo Card Stock 8 1/2 x 11 in half which gives us a 5 1/5 x 4 1/4.  This is your base
  7. I then cut a piece of Bermuda Bay, 5 1/4 x 4 and layered on the Melon Mambo using Snail Adhesive.
  8. Now we can finish assembly.  Using Snail Adhesive attach the Whisper White stamped card stock to the Bermuda Bay Card Stock.   Using a mini Glue Dot, adhere the Butterfly to side of Flower.

Supplies:

Hope you liked the card.   I will post another one next week.  Still working on getting this blog setup so will be working on getting it ‘dressed up’ some more.  Please stop by and let me know what you think about the additions as they come along.  I have added a link for you to sign up for my posting and if you like my blog, please share.

Thank You  Have a great day
