Stampin’ Up! Floating and Fluttering for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good Morning and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! I have a sneak peek of the new Stampin’ Up! Floating And Fluttering bundle from the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog. This is a pretty new butterfly bundle that I used to make an easy floating frame type of card, well just the inside part. Take a close look at the pictures and you’ll see that the butterflies are floating above the black patterned DSP with dimensionals. You can find the currently available supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a sketch challenge this week, and here is the pretty sketch we are using for our projects:

I embossed a panel of So Saffron card stock with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the front of a So Saffron card base. I cut a panel of the the new True Love designer series paper (available January 5, 2021) from the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog with the Stitched Rectangles Die.

I stamped two of the butterflies stamp from the Stampin’ Up! Floating And Fluttering photopolymer stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White. I colored them with Stampin’ Blends – Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie, Night of Navy, Balmy Blue, Highland Heather, Poppy Parade, So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Pool Party. I cut them out with the coordinating dies and laid them together and cut out the outline with the same Stitched Rectangle die that I used to cut out the True Love DSP.

I adhered the butterfly die cuts to the DSP with dimensionals – this gives them the appearance of floating above the DSP. I stamped the sentiment from the Floral Essence photopolymer stamp set in Versamark ink on a Basic Black panel and sprinkled it with white embossing powder. I heat set the embossing powder until it was shiny and cut it out with the die from the Tasteful Labels dies. I adhered it to the card with glue dots and finished the card with three pearl gemstones.

I stamped the butterfly and leaf sprig from the Stampin’ Up! Floating And Fluttering stamp set in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Whisper White and colored them with Stampin’ Blends. I cut them out with the individual coordinating dies. I adhered a strip of the True Love DSP to the bottom of a Whisper White panel and adhered the leaf sprig and butterfly on top. I adhered the panel to a Basic Black mat and then to the inside of the card.

The new Stampin’ Up! Floating And Fluttering stamp set is a two step set with the big stamp with the outline images and lots of solid image stamps so you can use different colors on each butterfly and leaf sprig. The Fluttering Dies that come in the bundle has dies to cut out the butterfly grouping and dies to cut out each butterfly and leaf sprig individually (like I did for the inside of this card) – it’s so different! There is also a frame stamp and die and the pretty embossed butterfly die. You can see them all in the picture below and they will be available on January 5, 2021 when the new Jan-Jun 2021 Mini Catalog launches!

  1. Akiko, this is lovely. You colored the butterflies so perfectly that it looks like it is DSP. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
