I am trying hard not to make all of my cards with items from the upcoming 2015 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog…but there is so much great stuff that I can’t wait to share with you!! 🙂 Today I used the Butterfly Basics stamp set and matching Butterflies Thinlits Dies to create a birthday card.
My card design was inspired by Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 247.
I started by adhering a panel of Painted Blooms DSP (available Jan 6) to a panel of Pacific Point card stock with SNAIL, then to a Soft Sky card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I cut a strip from the Painted Blooms DSP, punched the end with the Hexagon Punch and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL. Then I sponged a panel from the Irresistibly Yours Specialty DSP (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 6) with Pacific Point ink and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.
I stamped the image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set (available Jan 6) in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a Whisper White panel and I colored it with my Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi (available Jan 6) and Soft Sky (available Jan 6) Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. I stamped the sentiment from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Pacific Point ink on the panel, then inked up the line and honeycomb images from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Soft Sky and Soft Suede inks, stamped them off on scrap paper once, then stamped them on the panel.
I adhered the stamped panel to the card front with SNAIL, then stamped the little butterfly image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Soft Sky ink on a scrap of the Painted Blooms DSP, punched it out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and adhered it with SNAIL.
I inked up the larger butterfly image in Soft Sky ink and I used a Sponge Dauber to add a little Pacific Point ink around the edges. I stamped the butterfly on a Whisper White panel, cut it out with the Butterflies Thinlits die (available Jan 6) and adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front. I added Pearl Basic Jewels to both butterflies and above the sentiment to finish the card front.
I inked up the butterfly image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set again in Soft Sky ink and I stamped it on a Whisper White panel inside the card.
Wait until you see the other two butterflies in the Butterflies Thinlits Dies set…they’re beautiful!! I can’t wait to use those too. 🙂

So pretty, Amy! The new butterfly stamp is awesome! I’m looking forward to seeing the new items. The insides of your cards are always finished off nicely and that makes such a difference in the presentation! : )
Thanks so much Roberta! I’m glad that you like peeking at the inside of the cards too. 🙂
This is such a pretty card, Amy. I am eager to see the new items and how to use the new chalk fluid inks.
Thanks Melanie! I just got some of those Chalk inks and plan to play soon! 🙂
