Best of Butterflies with Daydream Medallions

Today I’m sharing a card that I made with the Best of Butterflies and Daydream Medallions stamp sets from Stampin’ Up!  I created this card using the colors from the Pals Paper Arts PPA158 Color Challenge.

Best of Butterflies

I started by adhering a panel of Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP to a panel of Whisper White card stock, then to a Pool Party card base with SNAIL.  Next, I adhered a panel of Patio Party DSP to a panel of Whisper White, then to the card front with SNAIL.  I stamped the Daydream Medallions images in VersaMark ink on Lucky Limeade and Whisper White card stock, sprinkled them with Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder, heat embossed them and cut them out with the Floral Frames Framelits Dies.  I sponged the edges of the Whisper White die cut with Pool Party ink and I adhered the layers together with SNAIL, then to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Then I stamped the Best of Butterflies image and the Lacy & Lovely sentiment in VersaMark ink on Summer Starfruit and Whisper White card stock, sprinkled them with Pool Party Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them.  I punched the butterfly out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and adhered the center of the butterfly to the Floral Frames die cut with SNAIL.  I adhered the sentiment to a strip of Pool Party card stock, cut the flag end with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To finish the inside of the card, I stamped the Best of Butterflies image again in Pool Party, Summer Starfruit and Lucky Limeade ink on a Whisper White panel.  Then I adhered the panel with SNAIL.

  1. Very pretty! I recently got this set of Framelits and have not used them…thank you for providing some inspiration!

  2. Lovely card! The embossing was a great touch on the Medallions and butterfly. The inside is sweet too. Thanks for joining us at the Pals Paper Arts this week!
