Butterfly Bouquet Cards and Hop

Welcome to Corner of Plaid and Paisley.  I am showing off some Butterfly Bouquet Cards made with the new bundle from Stampin' Up!  This is the perfect beginning to the spring season!

I am Ann Krucek, from Malvern, Ohio. If you are joining us from the hop - Welcome!!  There will be lots of inspiration for the Butterfly Bouquet Cards through this hop - all the links will be at the bottom of my post!

 This bundle will be in the new upcoming catalog but is an early release and is now available for all to purchase now.  The stamp is Butterfly Brilliance and the Die set is Brilliant Wings Dies, however as always,  if you purchase them together as a bundle you save 10%.  But what is exciting about this set is the fabulous coordinating 6X6 designer series paper being offered.  The die fits right over one of the designs and cuts out 6 beautiful butterflies at once.

This first card I am showing uses one of the bright sheets of DSP.

I stamped the butterfly on Vellum paper with Momento Ink then let it sit overnight - otherwise the ink will smear.  I know some would say stamp it with Stazon - but both of my Stazon ink pads were dried up!!  So I don't know how that does work - but my Momento worked just fine when I let it sit and dry.  I colored this with my Stampin' Blends -HOWEVER- I turned it over and colored the backside of the butterfly, otherwise the ink would smear a bit from the blends.  Coloring these vellum butterflies is fun, I just kept layering different colors until I got the desired look.  

I used the Pretty Perennials stamp for the sentiment, Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon (love this ribbon - it ties a nice bow) and the Pastel Pearls for embellishments.


 I also wanted to show something a bit different using this set and went a bit vintage and paired the Butterfly Bouquet up with the Very Versailles stamp set.
I stamped the butterflies on Crumb Cake Cardstock with Soft Suede Ink.  The next layer is Very Vanilla Cardstock stamped with Crumb Cake Ink then run through the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and I  ripped the edges. The mat layer is Crumb Cake Cardstock stamped with the wood look of the Gallery Grunge stamp with Crumb Cake ink.I used the Scalloped Lace Trim and the Antiqued Corners & Slides as embellishments.
Many of these items maybe retiring soon - we will be receiving the list of retiring merchandise on March 24th.

I hope you enjoyed my creations with the Butterfly Bouquet.

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.
