Hello! I am in love with the Stampin’ Up!® Butterfly Brilliance stamp set! It is so easy to make a great card!
This card is a perfect step up for the Beginner Stamper. It is a technique that I first learned from my friend Karen years ago. I don’t actually know the name of the technique, so if you do know, please leave me a comment.
The Stampin” Up!® Butterfly Brilliance stamp is one single stamp with all these butterflies on it. There is a matching die that cuts out all of the butterflies in one go. The Butterfly Brilliance stamp will be available for purchase starting March 2, 2021 through May 3, 2021. I will post more detailed ordering information below.
Measurements: Gorgeous Grape Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches; Basic White CS: two at 4 x 5 1/4 inches, 2 1/2 x 4 inches and a 1/2 x 3 inch strip; Daffodil Delight CS: 2 3/4 x 4 1/4 inches.
To prepare the card pieces for stamping you will need to use a repositionable, non-permanent adhesive to hold the 2 1/2 x 4 inch Basic White CS in the center of one of the 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS. An example is the Herma Dotto Repositionable Tape.
The next step is to apply the Memento ink to the stamp. This is a huge stamp! I find it much easier to get the ink on evenly if I flip it upside down and apply the ink. You will stamp over the 2 pieces of card stock. Hold the stamp in place and apply a firm even pressure so that you will not get too much of an unstamped border around the paper in the center. Don’t worry if there is some unstamped border because it will be covered by the Daffodil Delight CS card piece later on.
Next separate the two card pieces and remove the repositionable adhesive. You can remove it easily just by brushing your fingers over it, or use an adhesive eraser.
Now use the Memento ink to stamp the sentiment “a little hello” which is in the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set onto the 1/2 x 3 inch Basic White CS strip.
To finish up the stamping, re-ink the butterfly stamp and stamp at an angle onto the other 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS.
Now for some coloring fun! I used the Stampin’ Write Markers for this, but you could also use the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers if you wish. The Stampin’ Write Markers used were the following colors: Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Purple Posy, Highland Heather and Gorgeous Grape.
Now some more coloring! Tip: In order to get a smooth color with just one layer, I used the side of the brush tip. Next use the Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the card piece to the inside of the Gorgeous Grape CS card base. How pretty!
Putting It All Together
Continue to assemble the card by adhering the other 4 x 5 1/4 inch Basic White CS card piece to the front of the Gorgeous Grape CS card base.
Next adhere the 2 1/2 x 4 inch butterfly panel to the 2 3/4 x 4 1/4 inch Daffodil Delight CS. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the butterfly panel to the front of the card.
Prepare the sentiment by cutting the end into a banner. Tip: Make a cut in the center of one side. Next cut from one corner to the top of the center cut. Then cut from the other corner to the top of the center cut.
Finish the card by adhering the sentiment banner as shown.
Viola! You have a gorgeous, interesting card to say “Hello” to someone.
