Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Birthday Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge. Happy hopping!

My card starts off with Thick Basic White cardstock.

I then used two patterns from the Butterfly Bijoy Designer Series Paper, matting the one on Bermuda Bay cardstock.

I next used the Brilliant Wings Dies to cut out one of the butterflies from another pattern in the Butterfly Bijou DSP. I adhered this down using a Stampin’ Dimensional.

I lastly stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink, snipping the end in a banner.

NEW Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance Card #2

On Wednesday, I shared a card that I made last week live.
It features the brand new Butterfly Brilliance Collection.

Honestly, I feel this collection should come with a warning. You will open it up, start creating with it, and not want to get up. You will neglect all household duties, replace meals for pieces of chocolate, and form a butt impression in your chair from not getting up….it’s THAT good!

For me the star of the collection is the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper – it is GORGEOUS!!!!

My card today starts off with Bermuda Bay cardstock and then layers over the front one of the patterns in the Butterfly Bijou DSP.

I then took a panel of Basic White cardstock and used the “basket weave” die from the Brilliant Wings Dies to add some texture to it. I then matted this on Basic Black cardstock.

Now, one of the patterns in the Butterfly Bijou DSP fits perfectly with the outline die in the Brilliant Wings Dies to cut out six gorgeous butterflies!!! I adhered three of these to the card front.

Next I stamped the sentiment from the Lovely You Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and cut it out using the Tasteful Labels Dies. Underneath it I wound around a bit of Pool Party ribbon and added a few rhinestones around.

If you buy the Butterfly Brilliance Collection in March through my store, I’ll mail you out a free class to go!!!

This class makes four cards using the collection. Included will be all the makings for the four cards except for the Memento Black Ink. In addition, you will also be emailed the four PDF instructions to make the cards.

If you wish to just purchase the PDF instructions, you can do so here.
