I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets Hello Life and Papillon Potpourri stamp sets to create my card for the Stamping and Blogging sketch challenge this week. Be sure to stop by the other Design Team Member’s Blogs to see what they’ve created with this sketch!
Here is this weeks Stamping and Blogging SB99 sketch:
The theme for my card was inspired by Just Us Girls #287.
I started by stamping the sentiment from the Hello Life photopolymer stamp set in VersaMark Ink on a panel of Chalkboard Paper. I sprinkled the sentiment with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it.
I stamped the butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set in Aquamarine, Rose Coral and Yellow Citrus ColorBox Chalk Inks across the panel and I dried them with my Heat Tool to quickly set them.
I cut the panel into three parts, then sponged the edges with Whisper White Craft Stampin’ Ink. I adhered the panels to a panel of Whisper White card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive, then adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I pulled a strand of Linen Thread through the heart button from the Sweet Dreams Designer Buttons pack, tied it around a looped strand of Coastal Cabana Thick Baker’s Twine to create a faux bow and adhered the button to the card front with a Glue Dot. I added three Rhinestone Basic Jewels to finish the card front.
I stamped the butterfly image from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set across a Whisper White panel with Aquamarine, Rose Coral and Yellow Citrus ColorBox Chalk Inks on the inside of the card.

The jewels are such a perfect ending to this happy card, Amy! Butterflies always make me happy! Beautiful card today~ Do you know what a butterfly bush is? We had 2 at our last home located on either side of the entranceway. They smell amazing, and I would sniff them each time I entered or exited my home. They attract moths, butterflies and even those cute Hummingbird Moths! https://www.google.com/search?q=hummingbird+moth&biw=1600&bih=688&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=OyglVfPfHJTasAS644GQDw&sqi=2&ved=0CH4QiR4 Not sure if this will show up, if not, google them; so fascinating to watch!
Thanks Roberta! I can’t wait to go check out the link! 🙂
My sister-in-law has a huge butterfly bush and it attracts the largest butterflies I have ever seen. The most unique are black Swallowtails.
Oh, I bet that they’re beautiful to see in real life! 🙂
I have all this chalkboard stuff and haven’t used it…..why? It looks great here!
Thanks so much Linda! I haven’t used the chalkboard stuff much either…I need to get at it. 🙂
It has taken me a while to come around to the chalkboard style. Your card is a lovely example and the colors are so pretty!
Thanks Melanie! I think that the soft colors make a big difference with the chalkboard style. 🙂
I love your card Amy. I have not played with these products yet but they look absolutely stunning on this card
Thanks Sandi! 🙂
Love your blackboard card and how you’ve worked the spring colors into it!
Thanks for joining us this week at Just Us Girls!
Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment! 🙂
Wow Amy, this card is awesome! I haven’t used the new chalkboard stuff either and hmm, now I’ve got this great card to case 😉 Love the way you worked the bright embossing and the subtle chalkboard butterflies together. Glad you tipped me too drying it, I get impatient and probably would have smeared my first attempt, lol 😀
Thanks Jill…most definitely dry them with your Heat Tool, I think that you’d be waiting for a LONG time for them to dry by themselves. And I’m way to impatient for that! 😉
I have not bought these products and I wonder why ! 🙂 It’s really beautiful Amy !
Thanks Marine! I haven’t used them much either, I think that I need to play a little more soon. 🙂
LOVE the chalkboard!!! You did a great job. And the butterflies are beautiful. Thanks Amy!! Hugs from Shelagh.
Thanks Shelagh! 🙂
I’m chuckling because I was wearing a shirt yesterday that said that exact same sentiment on it! What a gorgeous card! Thanks for joining us at Just Us Girls!
Love it! Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment! 🙂
I really like your cards & the inside of the card with the butterflies!
