Good Morning and Welcome March! Hopefully the worst of Winter is over because I am so ready for Spring, but sadly Sale A Bration is over too. But the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog is just around the corner and tomorrow we get an early release of a new bundle from the catalog – the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance bundle! So I made this card during my Facebook Live yesterday afternoon to give you another sneak peek of this beautiful bundle. You can find the currently available supplies I used at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.
Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the card:
I used my Stamparatus to stamp the butterfly from the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Brilliance cling stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on Basic White. I cut it out with the coordinating die and colored it with Misty Moonlight and Pool Party Stampin’ Blends. I embossed the Pool Party Panel with the Meadow Moments embossing folder and adhered it to a Misty Moonlight Mat.
I adhered a panel of the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper to the front of a Misty Moonlight card base. I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Thoughts stamp set in Misty Moonlight on a Pool Party panel and cut it out with the Tasteful Labels die. I wrapped a length of Misty Moonlight ribbon around the embossed panel and tied it and made a bow. I positioned the butterfly, ribbon and label on the panel and made adjustments until I was happy with the arrangement. I adhered the label with dimensionals and the butterfly with glue dots and secured the ribbon with a glue dot behind the bow.
I adhered the panel to the front of the card with dimensionals and finished it with three large holiday rhinestones on the butterfly and three small ones on the label.
For the inside, I stamped the butterflies on Basic White using Misty Moonlight ink after stamping off. I carefully positioned the panel on the Stamparatus to get the portion of the butterfly that I wanted for each one, and had to move the hinge to the opposite side so the panel would not be crumpled by the side hinge. After stamping the butterflies, I adhered a strip of Butterfly Bijou DSP to the bottom and adhered the panel to the inside of the card.
The Stampin’ Up Butterfly Brilliance bundle will be available tomorrow as an early release of the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog as part of the Butterfly Bouquet promotion. This will also include the Butterfly Bijou designer series paper and the Natural Touch specialty paper.
