Hello there! I hope you had a great weekend. Scotland is freezing cold now and we only got a few hours of daylight 🙁 . I even got flu that sent me to ER last week but as I’m 7 months pregnant now I only can take paracetamol but I’m doing fine and I keep myself warm in a busy craft room and enjoying my time with Emma my precious little daughter.
Today, I want to start this week sharing another Global Design Project challenge: sketch challenge and I made 2 different cards, the one in the pictures below using Watercolor Wings Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! and Bold Butterflies framelits dies that coordinates with this stamp and a second one you can see byclicking here.
I hand cut a square out of whisper white card stock and using a circle punch I cut out its edges to create a label then I embossed it using Decorative Dots embossing folder and added colour using daubers and Perfect Plum ink and I passed on top a second generation of Gold Encore ink so the embossed dots got gold.
I stamped a butterfly in Perfect Plum ink and Blackberry Bliss ink using 2 stamps in Watercolor Wings stamp set and I hand cut it. I used the smallest die in Bold butterflies dies pack to cut a butterfly out of a Window Sheet. I pasted them together with a staple,and at the back of the butterfly I pasted with a glue dot some golden fibres I got from the Gold 1/8 ribbon applying the Ribbon thread technique by Krista Frattin. Krista is a very talented Canadian SU Demo and I adore her ideas watch Krista video tutorial hereor down below to create designer thread accents from Stampin’ Up! ribbon & bakers twine.
To finish I made a card base (6″x4″inches) using Crumb Cake card stock and I added a layer of Whisper White card stock, and to complete the sketch I stamped some dots in the superior edge using Versamark ink, Gold Stampin Emboss Powder and the dotty stamp of Watercolor Wings stamp set and I embellished using Gold 1/8 ribbon. I also stamped with Gold Emboss Powder the sentiment.
