Hello crafty friends! Today I have rainbow butterflies card with the Paper Rose Studio Elena Butterfly and Amaya Butterfly dies. These two butterfly die sets are really beautiful!!
I started by die cutting butterflies from watercolour paper. I then adhered butterfly die cuts onto an A2 sized watercolour paper panel using SSS Micro Dot Sheets Adhesive. Next, I ink blended the butterflies panel with some Distress inks in rainbow order – I used (from the top-left corner) Fired Brick, Tattered Rose, Fossilized Amber, Peacock Feathers, Crushed Olive, Faded Jeans and Seedless Preserves. I added opaque white ink splatters all around the panel. I die cut 3 Elena Butterflies from vellum paper, added them as shown in the picture. For a more shiny effect, I decorated the centre of butterflies with Clear Crystal Mix.
I adhered all watercoloured flowers & leaves, wedding ring on the centre of the white butterfly base using foam tape. I decorated the card with small clear droplets.
For the second butterfly card, I die cut flowers & leaves from watercolour paper using the Hero Arts Envelope Accessorise dies, randomly glued all die cuts on white butterfly card base using fine tip glue pen, and then ink blended it with some Distress inks in rainbow order. I added smaller vellum butterfly die cut, pearls and Hero Arts small butterfly on the card.
Here is the last but not least, I decorated the right part of the butterfly with colourful flowers & butterfly. I die cut Hero Arts small flowers & leaves from various colour cardstock, butterfly from white cardstock first. I then lightly added colour each die cut with Copic markers, and then arranged all flowers & leaves onto the right side of the white butterfly card base using foam tape.
Isn’t it so lovely?!! I am so very pleased with the result, haha! :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend!

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday! Welcome to Day 1 of the Simon Says Stamp Yay You Release Blog Hop. I’m so happy to be a part of this awesome blog hop! If you arrived here from super talented Cheiron Brandon’s blog you are on the right track.
I die cut the word “Happily Ever After” from thick white cardstock, shadow from vellum paper, and then glued them together. I mounted the floral panel on white card base using Dot Runner Adhesive, added the sentiment die cut on the centre of the card using foam tape, and then decorated the sentiment with tiny butterflies and wedding ring.
For my second card for the hop, I used the new Arches stencil along with other SSS products.

Finally, I made alcohol ink background! I know, alcohol ink background became trendy a few years ago but at the time, honestly, I didn’t want to add alcohol inks in my stash because I had so many different mediums like watercolours, Distress inks, etc.. HOWEVER, I ended up falling in love with the charm of alcohol ink background. The unexpected result is particularly attractive!! :D
I die cut the Stylized Butterfly from thick white cardstock, small olive leaf from metallic gold cardstock, and then mounted them onto the centre of the card front using foam tape.
I decorated the gold olive leaf with gold crystals.
Here is another card with the Olive Leaves die set. I made another alcohol ink background with blue, yellow and metallic gold alcohol inks. I then die cut the Thinking of You Heart & Olive Leaves from white cardstock. I applied green Distress inks to a part of Olive Leaves die cuts.
