A fun card to make using different stamps from your collection to make a neat background.
Here are the stamps that I used to make the back ground
The script sentiments stamp is a 2001 Stampin Up! I thought it would make a good background and I used it for the inside of the card too.
"May this birthday bring life's true gifts, good health, friendship and love"
The stamp second stamp, there is no manufacturing mark on the wood block.
The butterfly is from Hero Arts clear set called "antique engraving". I did the masking technique for the butterflies and used the two stamps above to create the background using Hero Arts Shadow Ink called "soft granite". Using a lighter ink color the butterflies would pop on the card.
The "happy birthday to you" is a Hero Arts wood block stamp. I stamped that on a separates piece of paper.
A gold leaf pen to edge around the papers.
I used some left over decorative paper from the "Mariposa" paper pad for a layered look.
I stamp one more butterfly and cut it out and glue the center of the body only to give it a 3D look.
I like making cards that have no extra bulk and no extra postage required.
For the past few weeks, I have been playing around with my papers, dies, inks and stamps.
So, I thought this week, I would show you one project for the next six days.
I'm real happy how this card turned out.
I used a cream colored 5" x 7" card base
This pretty butterfly paper came from the paper pad by DCWV called "mariposa"
I wanted to bring out the colors of the butterflies.
The flowers and leaves are from Papertrey Inks stamp and die set called "Rosie Posie". The darker shading in the flowers and leaves is the other set called "Rosie Posie, step 2".
The inks I used on the roses are Hero Arts Shadow Ink in dark quarts, just rust.
For the smaller rose buds I used Hero Arts Showdow Ink in "pool" and Memento ink "teal zeal".
One the leaves I used Hero Arts "soft olive and Memento ink in Olive grove.
I used some pop foam squares to pop the flowers up.
I used a beautiful copper colored card stock by Cordinations to cut out "lacy circle" die by Spellbinders.
A Spellbinder large circle die (layered onto of the lacy die). I used a sheet from DCWV's "rustic" paper pad. I used a script stamp that I purchased at Hobby Lobby called, faded text background. A very pretty stamp.The Ink I used was a Hero Arts Shadow Ink called, Butter bar. It was the perfect shade and if gave the paper some extra texture.
The birthday stamp is a Papertrey Ink set called, Inside and Out: Birthday.
Martha Stewart butterfly punches
On Fridays post I will show you another card using the Rosie Posie set.
Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day.
