Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala For The Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala and Rooted In Nature stamp sets to create my card for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.  We’ve got a color challenge this week and this is what I made for it.

Here are the colors that we’re using this week:

My card design also works for Global Design Project #GDP243.

I started by adhering a panel from the Ornate Garden Speciality DSP to a panel of Early Espresso card stock with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Then I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted In Nature stamp set in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Bumble Bee DSP from the 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP pack with my Stamparatus (to ensure solid coverage).  I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Early Espresso card stock and then to the card front with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.

I stamped the butterfly images from the Butterfly Gala photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso and Crushed Curry inks (stamped twice to darken it) on a panel of Whisper White card stock.  I punched the butterfly out with the coordinating Butterfly Duet Punch and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card front.

I colored three Rhinestone Basic Jewels with the Dark Old Olive Stampin’ Blends Marker and then adhered the rhinestones around the sentiment and butterfly.  I adhered the layered panel to the front of an Early Espresso card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals to finish the card front.

I stamped another butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set in Early Espresso and Crushed Curry inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock, punched it out with the Butterfly Duet Punch and adhered it to a panel of Whisper White card stock to finish the inside of the card.

  1. Just came across your card on the GDP challenge and it jumped right off the page at me! I love it! The large strip of woodgrain is perfect for this and you’ve set the card up beautifully.
