Happy Birthday – Butterfly Negatives

Hi there!

I’ve got a card for you today. I wanted to use the beautiful Butterfly thinlit again, but this card came by accident :)

I was planning to color the butterflies with my sponge dauber, and the “shadow” left on my scrap paper turned out so nice, I finally decided to make a card using the negatives!

Shimmer and Shine - Happy Birthday - Butterfly negatives - #StampinUp, #Butterfly, #Framelits

First of all, you obviously have to die-cut your butterfly. Then, being careful not to move your butterfly, you have to gently tap your sponge dauber over it, like a stencil, to make the silhouette appear on your card. I went from dark to light in order to make the body of the butterfly the focal point, and insist on its delicate wings.

I didn’t want the sentiment to hide the butterflies, so I stamped it with Versamark ink on vellum, and then heat embossed it with sparkling gold embossing powder to match the strip of glitter paper I added on the side.

I’m pretty pleased with the result :) and even better, with this technique you have the die-cut butterflies left to play with, so I’ll show you the card I’ll make with them in a few days… stay tuned!

Hello!

I seem to have an addition with pink tones at the moment (see my last card!)… I’m longing for Spring 🙂

Here is a quick but very effective card I made with two of my favourite products of the Spring Catalogue : the Butterfly Thinlit Die and the Something Lacy background stamp.

I stamped the Something Lacy stamp with Versamark on vellum, then added white embossing powder and heat-set it. The card base and the butterfly are both cut from a Pink Pirouette cardstock. The sentiment is from Grandes Nouvelles, it has been stamped with silver ink on Whisper White cardstock and hand-cut to make a fishtail banner. I added a pearl for an elegant finishing touch.

Here is a close-up to this wonderful butterfly… isn’t it pretty?
