The Best is Yet to Come, Stampin’ Up

Great card today using Botanical Blooms clear mount stamp set.

Soft Sky/Smoky Slate butterfly



Card base: 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.Choose either Mossy Meadow or Lost Lagoon.

Next layer: Whisper White panel 5 1/4″ by 4″. I used Lost Lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow, Calypso Coral & Wild Wasabi to stamp the various flowers and leaves.  You’ll notice some images are darker, some lighter, so I either stamped full ink or stamped off once for a variation in depth of color.

Top layer: First use a piece of Calypso Coral measuring 3 3/4″ by 3″ and then Whisper White at  3 1/2″ by 2 3/4″. I  used the Project Life Corner round on the edges on both pieces. The sentiment is stamped in Archival Black ink, and I colored  the butterfly with Soft Sky  and Smoky Slate Markers on one and Perfect Plum and Smoky Slate Markers on the other.I used the Blender Pens to smooth out the two colors. Then I added a few little White pops with the Uni-ball White Gel Pen. I added dimensionals to the bottom of the Calypso Coral piece to give it some height. Finally a little Wink of Stella on the wings and along a tiny flight trail makes it sparkle!

Really versatile card even with the sentiment already on…Lots of possibilities too if you  choose to switch it out…..

Until next time, Happy Stampin’   🙂
