Flower Fancy with Vellum Butterflies

Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Vellum; Ink: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Real Red Marker, Riding Hood Red Marker, Old Olive Marker, Certainly Celery Marker; Stamps: Flower Fancy, Messages for Mom; Tools & Accessories: Scallop Trim Border Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Crystal Effects, Rhinestones, 3/8″ Twill Tape.

I stamped the flowers from Flower Fancy with Chocolate Chip ink and colored them in with Real Red and Certainly Celery Marker. Then, taking a slightly darker color (Riding Hood Red and Old Olive), outlined the images and accented them with Crystal Effects.

The butterflies were made using Vellum card stock and the Beautiful Wings Embosslit in the Big Shot. I colored the rhinestones with red permanent marker (any kind will do). They are adhered to the card with mini glue dots.

Across the bottom, I added a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. Then, I stamped onto the Twill Tape with Real Red ink and a sentiment from Messages for Mom.

Elements of Style Card Samples

Here are several cards made with Elements of Style. It’s a popular stamp but it’s not the style I normally gravitate toward. My upline (hi Cindy!) asked me to help her come up with some ideas for swaps using this set and these are the results:

Version 1

Stamps: Elements of Style; Card stock: Regal Rose, Shades of Spring DSP, Old Olive, Whisper White, Apricot Appeal; Ink: Old Olive Marker, Regal Rose Marker, Old Olive Classic Ink, Pretty in Pink Classic Ink; Accessories: Modern Label Punch, Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Big Shot, Sponge Dauber, Circle Rhinestone Brad, Dimensionals, Cropadile, Glue Dots.

Version 5: I think I hate the green butterfly. I may try a different color, maybe white with sponging, or black, or razzleberry?

Beautiful Spring Butterflies {Congratulations Card}

I love how this turned out so cheery and bright. The base is Chocolate Chip card stock, layered with Barely Banana.

The focal point of the card is the row of little butterflies mounted on color coordinated circles. I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit and the Big Shot to make them in 4 colors: Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Barely Banana, and Kiwi Kiss. Whenever I use the Beautiful Wings Embosslit, I save all the extra butterflies in a little ziploc baggie and when I need them, they’re ready to go.

I mounted each tiny butterfly on Whisper White punched out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. Then, I layered each white circle on the corresponding color, punched out with the 3/4″ Circle Punch. Those are adhered to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

As for the sentiment, I stamped “congratulations” from Well Scripted in Chocolate Chip ink below the butterflies. I added a strip of Chocolate Chip card stock that I punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and adhered it behind the Whisper White layer.  Around the edges of the Whisper White, I paper pierced to give it definition. Finally, the Regal Rose 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon was tied around the White layer and adhered to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.
