Welcome to the monthly Inspirations in Ink Blog Hop. This month the theme is the new Stampin’ Up! 2022-2024 In Colors – Sweet Sorbet, Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky and Parakeet Party! I will be using all of the colors except the Sweet Sorbet.
This “FABULOUS” butterfly card is a lot of fun to make! Here’s how.
- Thick Basic White card stock card base: 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches
- Parakeet Party card stock: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inches
- Starry Sky card stock: 2 1/4 x 5 inches
- 2022-2024 In Color 6×6 inch Designer Series Paper in Orchid Oasis: 2 1/8 x 4 7/8 inches
- Basic White card stock: 7/8 x 2 inches (sentiment)
- Starry Sky card stock: 1 x 2 1/8 inches (sentiment border)
- Basic White card stock: 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches for stamping the butterflies
- Stamp the Butterfly Brilliance stamp using the Stamparatus and the 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 inch Basic White card stock and Memento Ink.
- Stamp the sentiment “You are really FABULOUS” (from the Slim Sayings stamp set) in Starry Sky Ink onto the 7/8 x 2 inch Basic White card stock.
- Use the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Ink in Tahitian Tide, Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky and Parakeet Party to color the butterflies (see photo following the instructions).
- Use the Brilliant Wings Dies to cut the butterflies out with the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.
- Curl the butterfly wings using your Bone Folder.
- Adhere the Orchid Oasis Designer Series Paper to the 2 1/4 x 5 inch Starry Sky card stock.
- Adhere the sentiment to the 1 x 2 1/8 inch Starry Sky card stock.
Embossing with Brilliant Wings Dies
Use the hatched pattern die in the Brilliant Wings Dies to emboss onto the 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 inch Parakeet Party card stock. You will need to do this 3 times to create the pattern I made.
Assembling the Card
- As shown in the photo above, adhere the embossed Parakeet Party card stock to the front of the Thick Basic White card stock card base.
- Adhere the Orchid Oasis Designer Series Paper/Starry Sky card stock card piece to the left side of the Parakeet Party card stock
- Position the butterflies and the sentiment on the card front. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere them.
- Tie a bow with the Starry Sky and Parakeet Party 1/8 inch Metallic Woven Ribbon. Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the bow under the sentiment piece.
- Embellish with the 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots as desired.
