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.
