Fluttering By Butterflies Stamp Set by Honey Bee Stamps

May 11, 2019


Happy Saturday everyone! I love butterfly stamps and  Fluttering By  Stamp Set by Honey Bee Stamps is in my opinion DIVINE!

So for today,  I made a card with a load of dimension and loads of butterflies.  If you want to give it a try this will be an easy and quick make.


STEP 1

Using the Tonic Tim Holtz stamping platform I stamped some of the butterfly images using Memento Black Ink on Dove white Hero Arts cardstock ...Gosh! I'm loving that cardstock.  It feels a bit rough to the touch. I mean it is not silky smooth and it is not white -white BUT  it is stunning to use with hybrid inks and alcohol markers. 

Look at those colours and I didn't do any fancy Copic Colouring. I actually only used the  5 different Colours you see in the picture above and I did some minimum blending.  



Step 2  and 3

I then die cut the images using the Spellbinders Platinium die Cutting machine and I look for coordinating paper. This took me a while but then  I  found that Lavander Fashion by  Fun Stampers Journey coordinates perfectly with the purple colour on the butterflies.

I listed the paper I used in the supplies list below and I'm also sharing similar cardstock colours I have tried and I also love...

Ok so the paper along was looking pretty but it needed something extra so I used Clear Nuvo Ink to stamp one of the Butterflies images all over the paper creating that pretty watermark.


Step 4 and 5

I then heat emboss one of the sentiments in Fluttering By  Stamp Set on black cardstock using Nuvo Clear Ink and Nuvo Glacier White Fine Detail Embossing Powder.

Tip: I used a micro fine tip pen to correct any embossing imperfection and my banner looks utra black - ultra neat. Nice!

The next step was to add dimension to everything.

I used Sticky Thumbs to adhere the butterflies on the front panel and I trimmed the wings that were picking out the edges. I used craft foam behind the front panel to adhere it on a C6 standard American card base using Nuvo Deluxe adhesive.

I embellish with Nuvo Amethyst Gemstones, Nuvo glitter accents and I also applied Nuvo Shimmer Pen all over the images to add sparkle
