Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics for the Totally Techniques Blog Hop

totally-techniques

I used the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Basics stamp set to create my card for the Totally Techniques blog hop.  This month we’re focusing on the watercolor spritzing technique.  Here is what I created:

I started by stamping the fern images from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Tranquil Tide (available May 1) and Lemon Lime Twist (available June 1) inks on a panel of Shimmery White card stock.  I spritzed the panel with water and a Stampin’ Spritzer and then set the panel aside to dry completely.

I inked the butterfly image from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Powder Pink ink (available June 1) and then used a Sponge Dauber to add a little Berry Burst ink (available June 1) around the edges.  I stamped the butterfly on a panel of Shimmery White card stock and then punched it out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch (retiring May 31).

I stamped the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons photopolymer stamp set (available June 1) in Tranquil Tide ink on the Shimmery White card stock panel, then adhered the panel to a panel of Tranquil Tide card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive and then to a Berry Burst card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I adhered the butterfly punch next to the sentiment with a Stampin’ Dimensional and then added a silver enamel dot from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the fern and butterfly images from the Butterfly Basics stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide, Powder Pink and Berry Bust inks on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

Stampin’ Up! Remarkable You For Fab Friday

I used the Stampin’ Up! Remarkable You stamp set and the Watercolor Pencils to create my card for the Fab Friday sketch challenge this week.

Here is the sketch for for Fab Friday 111.  Hope that you’ll stop by the Fab Friday Challenge Blog and play along too!

I started by stamping the flower image from the Remarkable You stamp set in Basic Black Archival ink on a panel of Crumb Cake card stock.  I used a Post It Note mask to cover the top the stamped image and I stamped the stems again so that they appear to be longer than they actually are.  Then I colored the stems with the Old Olive Watercolor Pencil and the flowers with the Whisper White and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils.  I adhered the stamped panel to a Crumb Cake card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I covered the “and” in the sentiment from the Remarkable You stamp set with a Post It Note and then inked the sentiment with Old Olive ink.  I removed the Post It Note mask and then stamped the sentiment on a strip of Whisper White card stock.  I punched the end of the sentiment strip with the Banner Triple Punch.

I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the sentiment strip several times and then tied a small knot.  I adhered the sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then added a Daffodil Delight enamel dot from the Brights Enamel Shapes pack to finish the card front.

I stamped the flower image from the Remarkable You stamp set in Crumb Cake ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.

You can see a list of supplies, including card stock cuts, for this project at the very bottom of this post.

Head on over to the Fab Friday challenge blog to see what the other design team members have created.  Hope that you’ll play along too!
