Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics Hello Sweet Friend

I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp sets called Butterfly Basics and Six-Sided Sampler to create my card to share today.

Butterfly Basics - Stamp With Amy K

My card design was inspired by Retro Sketches #165.

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 2.26.21 PMThe colors for my card were inspired by The Card Concept #35.  I went with the Clean and Layered look again.

I started by stamping the sentiment from the Six-Sided Sampler stamp set in Blushing Bride ink on a panel of Blushing Bride card stock, then I adhered the panel to a So Saffron card base with SNAIL.

Butterfly Basics 2 - Stamp With Amy K

I sponged So Saffron ink on a Tea Lace Paper Doily, then cut the doily into pieces and adhered it to the card front with SNAIL.  I embossed a panel of Very Vanilla card stock with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder, adhered it to a panel of So Saffron card stock, then to the card front with SNAIL.

Butterfly Basics 3 - Stamp With Amy K

I inked up the butterfly image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and then So Saffron Inks and stamped the images on a panel of Very Vanilla card stock.  For the final butterfly, I inked the image in So Saffron and then used a Sponge Dauber to add Blushing Bride ink to the top half.  I cut the butterflies out with the Butterflies Thinlits Die and adhered them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Butterfly Basics 1 - Stamp With Amy K

I tied little bows with Linen Thread through So Saffron and Blushing Bride buttons from the Subtles Designer Buttons pack, then adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots.

Butterfly Basics 4 - Stamp With Amy K

I stamped the image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set again in Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and So Saffron inks on a Very Vanilla panel inside the card.
