Pull thru Butterfly- Butterfly Bijou Card 2 of 4

Click the image to see the products used in this card.

I was so incredibly lucky to get a hold of the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper as a part of a creative challenge. Here is the second card I submitted. Did you “miss” the 1st? Find it HERE as a part of the We Bee Stamping Blog Hop.

Isn’t this ombre butterfly designer series paper amazing?! The Just Jade “just” called to me so I trimmed it the have the most of that color range. I cut each layer out with the Stitched rectangle dies then attempted to line up the two smallest Stitched Nestled dies to be able to fit my butterfly thru. I say attempted because eventhough my butterfly went thru I lined up the wrong edge line of the die and the paper is off set. Did you notice? Hopefully not but if you did remember sometimes the beauty is in the imperfection. Well at least that is what I tell myself.

The butterflies were made with gold embossing powder and colored with the Stampin’ Blends markers. For the record, I will never use another marker other than alcohol markers again! Punch out the finished product and adhere. I used the Tombow multipurpose glue on all the layers so I could adjust them as needed.

I forgot how much I like the Well Written dies, thankfully they are a perfect reminder on this card. To make the cardstock shadow trace the outside outline of the die and fussy cut. Add the Butterfly Gems and the outside is done.

The only tricky part of the card was lining up the butterfly. Once you have that done your can add your sentiment and the accent butterfly and the inside is done too.

We BEE Stamping TEAM Blog Hop-Marching into Spring

Thank you for BUZZING IN, I couldn’t be happier to have you visit!

Spring to me is a time of coming out of my winter cocoon and spreading my wings. Nothing could exemplify this more than the butterfly. If you haven’t guessed it butterflies are particularly meaningful for me…I did name my blog “Chasing Paper Butterflies” after all.

Gray Granite is the base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches) followed by a layer of Magenta Madness (4 x 5 1/4 inches) and finally a layer of Peony Garden paper. Doesn’t those peonies provide a perfect back drop!

To make the eye catching butterflies I used the Butterfly Beauty dies and the coordinating foil from the Love You Always Foil Paper then glued the cropped image to a piece of BUTTERFLY BIJOU designer series paper that will be available TOMORROW (I am so excited to share this with you-see below for more details). Fussy cut the image out and adhere to the card. Choose a sentiment to stamp on a scrap of Gray Granite and cut a ribbon end.

I am “Always” Thinking of You

Click the image to view the supplies used in this card

Valentine’s Day may be over but love is still in the (super cold) air. I “always” find my self last second making a card for an anniversary. They come every year at the same time for the same people so I should have this all prepared right? Nope! This year I vowed (see what I did there) to make some extra anniversary cards to have in my stash. Enter the Forever & Always bundle. Check out the video all about this set.

In the card above as opposed to the card below you will notice that the “Always” looks a little different. Well there was a bit of a delay getting the dies in due to COVID (no surprise) so I couldn’t wait and decided to emboss the word and fussy cut it out then adhered it to a Rococo Rose piece and fussy cut it. Fussy cutting is not a favorite activity of mine so check out the card below designed by Leigh Amburgey to see how beautifully these dies make the sentiment. Good news is I have my dies now- disaster averted. I just think Leigh’s card really pops!
