Happiness Is A Butterfly


 Hello all!  Something springy for today (we can all hope can't we! LOL)  Today's card showcases the French Rose background stamp from Justrite.  It is simply gorgeous, isn't it!  I decided to use part of it as the bold portion.  I stamped it and coloured it with coloured pencils and then edged it with Antique Linen distress inks for an aged look.  I cut the background along the flowers and swirls.  I used the background again, but this time, I very lightly stamped it on milk coloured card, just to get the hint of the text onto the background.  I used the swirl from the Butterfly Dreams and stamped it around  the edge and gold embossed it.  I stamped my sentiment (from the Butterfly Dreams set) and cut it out with the Vintage Labels two die.  I inked through the die with a Antique Linen and just a hint of Tattered Rose.  I mounted the sentiment in the middle on foam.  I used the butterfly from the set and stamped it and embossed it in gold.  I cut it out by hand as it doesn't match any die shape.  I added it to my background above the sentiment.  I added a double mat of soft gold card  and pierced the inner mat to finish it off.  Finished dimensions are 7" x 7" in size.  I posted the winners of the blog candy yesterday afternoon, so don't forget to scroll down and see if your name is listed!  Also, there are still ongoing card auctions on the right hand side of the blog.  As one closes, I post a new one so please be sure to have a look and send in a bid if you would like to be part of the charity auction!  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue, thought the label 29 as a book card was my favourite of late but now not so sure , this card is truly sublime. Thank you for sharing your talent. Lol Lynne M x x

Really like the subtle text stamping in the background, Sue, but not sure about the cut-out shape and brightness of the flowers. Would look great all peachy/creamy??

Heather said...

Morning Sue!

Love the way you have executed this card it is quite unusual and a reminder not to just take stamps and dies 'as is' so to speak.

There is so much going on in the craft world and so many possibilities that it is easy to forget some of the techniques and ways of doing things and a gentle reminder refreshes the way we look at things. Thank you once again
Sue.

morning Sue
Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful - I have not seen these stamps but will be on the hunt for them - they are really gorgeous!! I have today's sentiment in one or two books and use it often for the inside of cards - I really love the way you have cut away and then used the background print again - this I must try - although I don't have these stamps I have others which I am sure I can combine to give a similar finish.

Hi Sue,
I've been away for a few days - able to receive your emails, but unable to comment on the blog. Frustrating! I've loved all the cards, but I think my fave from the last few days was the 'Book for a friend'. Today's card is so pretty - a little bit Victorian maybe? Love the intense colours and the gold swirls. Beautiful.
