Hello crafty friends! Hope you are having a good weekend. Today I have 3 rainbow coloured butterfly cards with some Simon Says Stamp goodies.
To-da! This Butterfly Drift die is my main supply – it’s definitely my most favourite butterfly die ever!!
For my first card, I made a watercoloured rainbow butterflies using the Butterfly Drift and the Shimmer Wreath dies. I die cut rectangle panel from watercolour paper using the A2 sized Basic Rectangle die first. I then die cut the centre of the panel using the Shimmer Wreath die. I watercoloured to a floral circle part of the panel as shown in the picture using Distress reinkers in rainbow order. Next, I die cut the Butterfly Drift from watercolour paper, and then applied Distress inks to some butterflies using blending brushes. For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Handlettered Greetings die set.
I decorated the card with cream coloured pearls.
For my second card, I made a tone-on-tone floral background with the Cosmos Bloom die first. I die cut several Cosmos Bloom from white cardstock, then adhered them on white card base as shown in the picture.
I die cut the Butterfly Drift from thick white cardstock, then coloured each butterfly die cut with Copic markers: Red: R24 / Pink: R22 / Orange: YR14 / Yellow: Y15 Green: YG06 / Blue: BG13 / Purple: R85 & V15. I added the outlined Butterfly Drift die cut on the centre of the card first, then added Copic coloured butterflies in place using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Thinking of You Heart die.
For my last card today, I made a watercoloured leafy background with the Leafy Christmas Tree die set. With Crushed Olive & Mowed Lawn Distress inks, I coloured to the panel & leafy tree die cuts. I die cut the Butterfly Drift from white cardstock, inked them, then added on the card.
I really hope my rainbow butterfly cards make you happy!
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a safe and restful weekend!
Keep smiling and be blessed. God bless you all. Love Love Love RejoicingCrafts
For the centre of the card, I added pinkish hydrangea using Hydrangea Petals die – sadly, it’s retired so if you don’t have, you can use any other flower dies.
I die cut several petals from watercolour paper, blended on each petal with Worn Lipstick Distress ink, then gently brushed them with water as shown in the picture. For the pale yellow leaves, I used the detailed leaf die in the Detailed Rose die set. I added pink jewels on the centre of each petals after assembling flower.
Happy Thursday, crafty friends!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh March 2019 Product Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Joni Nina Andaya’s blog you are on the right track.
Spring has come to the PPP house. There are lots of fresh & beautiful sets in March! I love Spring Frame & Bold Butterflies Dies in particular!
I started by die cutting Spring Frame from white card stock. I then coloured all flowers & leaves with alcohol markers.
I die cut a butterfly from white card stock using the Bold Butterflies Dies, and then inked up the centre of it with Wild Honey Distress ink.
I die cut the Spring Frame from white card stock once more, trimmed off all flowers & leaves. I then inked up the stitched frame with Antique Linen Distress ink, adhered it onto the coloured frame. I stamped the sentiment from the Encouraging Greetings Set on white card base with pigment black ink, and then mounted all elements using foam tape.
The leaves with clear droplets look fresher – it looks like spring raindrops leaves!
