Sharing unique handmade paper craft treasures made with Stampin' Up!®
Author: Theresa's Treasures
Hello, my name is Theresa. I have 4 children and a wonderful husband of 29 years. I am a retired Family Physician who loves creating and crafting, so much so that I became a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I have been a demonstrator for 5 years. Not only do I get to craft, I get to travel and meet new friends from all over the world. Crafting gives me something positive to do and share with others. I love having people over to stamp cards with me. Check out my Zoom classes!
My blog was initially geared toward the beginner stamper. I want to help others get started stamping on their own at home. My more recent posts are a mixture of beginner and avid cards and projects. Come join me!
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)
Hello everyone! I’m so glad that you’re visiting today and hope you are having a wonderful day! Today I am hopping with the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop for the first time! We are sharing inspiration from this lovely Scene & Color Challenge. There are several of us hopping today. You will find the list to follow along at the end of my blog post.
I am inspired by both the scene and the colors. The Mountain Air stamp set is so fun to create with! The flowers are from the Flowering Rain Boots stamp set. The color for the sky and foreground is achieved with the Blending Brushes using the 2022-2024 In Colors.
Creating the card yourself
The first step to creating this card is to use the Stamparatus to stamp the mountain on a 3 7/8 x 5 1/8 inch Basic White card stock. I used a Sponge Dauber to apply the Tahitian Tide & Starry Sky Ink to the mountain stamp. It is much easier to get the desired effect by using the Stamparatus! The clouds are Stamped Off using Starry Sky Ink.
Next I used the new Masking Paper to cover the mountain and clouds. To begin creating the sky, use a Blending Brush to apply a hint of Sweet Sorbet Ink. Then blend in the Tahitian Tide and Starry Sky Ink. Remove the Masking Paper from the clouds but keep the mountain covered.
The grass is colored with the Parakeet Party Ink. I tried to apply more ink just under the mountain to create a shadow. The leaves for the tulips are stamped in Parakeet Party Ink. The shadows on the leaves are enhanced with the Stampin’ Write Marker in Parakeet Party.
The tulips are stamped in Sweet Sorbet Ink on Sweet Sorbet card stock. Enhance the lines with the Sweet Sorbet Stampin’ Write Marker. I applied a small strip of a Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the top of each tulip and then used Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the base of each tulip. This resulted in a 3D effect. The 2022-2024 In Color Matte Decorative Dots to bling up the tulips.
Stamp the sentiment in Starry Sky Ink. Then use the Stylish Shapes Dies to cut it out. Color the edges with a Sponge Dauber and Tahitian Tide Ink. I made the bow using the the Metallic Woven Ribbon in Sweet Sorbet and Parakeet Party.
I hope this card has inspired you and hopefully brightened your day. There are other amazing inspirations for you to see as you hop along this blog hop. Please see the list below. You are at Theresa’s Treasures written by Theresa McEntee. Be sure not to miss anyone!

Welcome to the monthly Across the Waves Blog Hop. This month’s theme is all about Masculine projects. Thanks for joining us. I have the He’s All That Sneak Peek card for you!
I hope you enjoy my project.
The He’s All That Sneak Peek card was inspired by a card I saw from Melva Peters. I changed some of the measurements so I could use fewer different pieces of the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper (DSP).
Very Vanilla Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches with a score line at 4 1/4 inches.
Very Vanilla CS: 2 1/2 x 4 inches for sentiment
Early Espresso CS: 4 x 5 1/4 inches
Cajun Craze CS: 3 7/8 x 5 1/8
He’s The Man DSP (available May 3, 2022): Early Espresso design for ribbon: 2 x 3 inches; a variety of pieces- 2 at 2 x 5 inches, 2 at 3 x 5 inches and 2 at 4 x 5 inches.
Assembling the Card
The trick is to cut several different widths of the DSP and then cut each piece on the diagonal. I used 2 inch, 3 inch and 4 inch wide by 5 inches long for the DSP.
Start to piece the card front together using a base for the DSP that measures 5 1/8 x 3 7/8 inches. I made a mark where I wanted to put the sentiment so that I could point the DSP triangles to that spot. Leave about a 1/8 inch space between the different DSP pieces.
The back side is pictured on the left. Use scissors to trim the excess DSP. When you are done the card front will look like the picture on the right.
Adhere the DSP piece to a 4 x 51/4 inch Early Espresso CS. Adhere this to the front of the Very Vanilla CS card base measuring 4 1/4 x 11 inches with a score line at 5 1/2 inches. Use the ribbon die in the All That Die set to cut 2 ribbons from the Early Espresso DSP pattern. Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Very Vanilla CS in Early Espresso Ink. Use the rectangular die in the All That Dies to cut out the sentiment. Adhere the ribbons to the back of the sentiment piece. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the sentiment to the card front. Add a few of the Rustic Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots.
Viola! You have a really cool masculine card!
