Hello there Butterfly Bouquet , its so lovely to meet you 🙂 Ahhh the weather lately has been so dreamy and these newly released butterflies are perfect for a little Springtime crafting.
This is a bumper suite and it offers the ultimate level of flexibility. You have so many great options here.
Let’s check out the Butterfly Bouquet Suite of products :
Let’s start with the stamp set. There are SIX butterflies in the set and they come as one large stamp that can be cut out with the one large matching die. It makes it so easy to stamp a bunch at once, have them cut in on go and as result colour them to your heart content. But that’s not all, the designer paper is also compatible so this means that its even easier for those last minute projects.
Here’s how to make this project :
- Begin by creasing an A5, Standard UK card base in Seaside Spray
- Next cut a panel of Watercolour Card measuring 7.5 cm x 15.3 cm
- Stamp one of the butterflies three times onto the panel, in Memento Black Ink. TIP: As much as I loved the idea of stampin and cutting ALL the flutters out at once, I am a dinosaur and I like what I like. I ended up cutting my big stamp into lots of stamps… I know, absolutely barbaric, but please know this is an option and its ok to do so gilt free !! That or either purchase an extra stamp set, so you have the best of both worlds.
- Once you have them stamped its time to colour !!! I love this bit and I started by scribbling lots of different colours onto the dry paper first, then using the water brush I blended away.
- You can let them dry then come back and add more colour until you are happy with the colour intensity.
- Using some gold foil paper, cut the delicate layering butterflies and stick over the top of the coloured ones.
- Add two bands of tear and tape adhesive to the edges of your watercolour panel then stick down two lengths of the scalloped seaside spray ribbon. This gorgeous ribbon adds such a lovely delicate texture to the whole card, it’s my favourite way to use it. Especially effective when its tone on tone like shown here.
- Layer the panel onto the card base next, then stamp, cut and position the small sentiments. The stamp set I used for the sentiments is the ever so useful, A wish for Everything stamp set. I used mini dimensionals to adhere these onto my card and this was it. Job done 🙂
Thank you so much for your visit today, don’t forget to Pin this card to your inspiration boards and as always if you have any questions or suggestions would love to har from you via th comment section below.
