Felt and decorated vellum

Hi there 🙂

It has been a bit complicated to take good photos these last days because of the horrible weather here near London and the lack of natural light… I managed to make some cards and have fun anyway!

For this one, I wanted to use the new (for me) die I got. It’s one of the retired products from Stampin’Up, but I’m glad I got it, as the butterflies are just gorgeous. I’ve got plenty of ideas to use it!

First I stamped the vellum with a polka dot background stamp with Versamark ink, then I covered it with a pretty Pink embossing powder and heat-set it. I die-cut the biggest butterfly but my vellum (folded in two) moved when I put the plates in the big shot, so instead of having a beautiful butterfly from the side, I ended up having the two wings with a 0.5 cm large bit in between… I didn’t want to discard it so I managed to create a body and antennas for my butterfly. I think it went quite well for what was a mistake at first 🙂

For the other butterflies, I just used felt and plain vellum. I used mini glue dots to hold them together and coloured two pearls with a silver Promarker to tie it together with the string of silver glitter paper below the butterfly.

The sentiment from Dovecraft is one I absolutely adore, I love this font. I cut the fishtail banner and off-set it to match the butterfly.

Just a note to say…

Hello there!

Sorry I’ve been away for so long, time flies…

Today’s card made me happy, because I’ve been able to use unloved and forgotten stamps to make a lovely card!

I first stamped the flowers in SU Melon Mambo, coloured them with Promarkers and then stamped once again the flower on a post-it note, to create a mask. I then used the mask to stamp the leaves in SU Lucky Limeade without stamping on the flowers.
