Butterfly Brilliance Card 1

     Hello friends! Spring is on it's way and I'm celebrating with the beautiful new Butterfly Brilliance bundle from Stampin' Up! I find it fascinating that the gorgeous butterfly stamp images in this set are sketched from actual exotic butterflies from around the globe. Did I mention I love butterflies. :)

All product used is from Stampin' Up!. 
I started with a A2 card base made from Just Jade CS that I inked around the edge with Just Jade. 

Next I cut the small rainbow butterfly paper from the Butterfly Bijou DSP to 5-1/4 x 4 and inked around the edge with Just Jade before adhering to the base. 

For the next layer I took a piece of  White CS cut to 3-1/2 x 2-1/2 and added a thin bead of Tombow liquid glue around the edge and waited for it to dry before adding Gold Leafing. I then adhered this to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I made a DIY stamp from a scrap of craft foam torn to size to give it a more organic shape and a die from the Butterfly Wings dies. 

I then used it to stamp with Just Jade on the small mandala paper from the Butterfly Bijou DSP giving another layer of visual dimension to the 3-1/4 x 2-1/4 tag. I completed the tag by adding Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and adhering with Stampin' Dimenionals.

For embellishment I cut the butterfly out of  the Butterfly Bijou DSP with the coordinating Butterfly Wings die. Gave it some shaping and added Wink of Stella glitter pen to the wings. I adhered the body only of the butterfly leaving the wings free. 

I used a sweet sentiment from the Garden Wishes stamped in Just Jade on White CS to match and also adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. To complete I added a few Pearl Basic Jewels.

If you have any questions about my process please feel free to ask. Also if you live in Canada and would like to purchase any of the above Stampin' Up! products you can find them on my website here.

I leave you today with a photo of some Snow Drops, the first flowers of the year in my garden.

I wish you all a creative week with thanks for stopping by.

Hello and welcome, I'm having a lot of fun mono printing with my gel plate these days. One of the things I enjoy is the unpredictability...
