Rainbow Glimmer Butterfly Brilliance

Hello! It’s been a while since I last posted. Sometimes I don’t know where the time goes! Today’s card is one of the projects from my May Class to Go featuring the Butterfly Brilliance bundle. It was scheduled before the pretty Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper sold out, so I still went ahead with the class since I had a full package of the DSP that I was able to include in several projects. However, I wanted to show possibilities for using the bundle without the coordinating paper and this is one of the cards I came up with, using the fun Rainbow Glimmer Paper.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Daffodil Delight Card base – cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, score at 5 ½”, fold and crease with bone folder.
  • Cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″. Run through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.  Adhere to card front
  • Cut a 3″ x 12″ strip of the Rainbow Glimmer Paper. Cut the strip into five different color sections.   Cut five pieces of Adhesive Sheet and apply to the backs of the glimmer paper. Run five different sizes of butterflies from the Brilliant Wings dies through the die cutting machine.  To adhere butterflies, pull off the backings from the adhesive sheets and arrange on card front, leaving space for a small greeting. If you don’t have adhesive sheets you can apply small dots of liquid glue on the back of each butterfly.
  • For the greeting, I used the Many Messages stamp. It is in the January-June Mini Catalog and has carried over to the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog, along with the coordinating die. I use the Stamparatus when I work with this stamp. Since all of the greetings are on the one stamp I just inked up the section with the greeting I wanted to use with Versamark, placed a scrap piece of Basic Black cardstock in the Stamparatus and stamped the greeting. After removing the cardstock sprinkle it with White Embossing Powder and set with the heat tool. To die cut greeting, position the Messages Die so that the correct part of the die matches up with the greeting. Adhere to card front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and adhere to inside of card.  Add greeting of your choice.
  • Embellish card front by adding large and small Matte Black Dots to the centers of the butterflies.

Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop! I’m participating with a group of fabulous Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from around the world that are showcasing projects made with products from the Butterfly Brilliance Collection. Please be sure to click on the names in the list at the end of this post to hop around and view the beautiful projects posted by these talented stampers.

Here is how I made this fun Z-fold card.

  • Cut a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″ and fold in half, creasing sharply with a bone folder. For the Z-fold base, cut a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock at 4″ x 10 1/4″. Score at 2 1/2″ and 5″ and fold, creasing sharply. Adhere piece to the Bermuda Bay card base.
  • Cut piece of DSP from the Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper at 3 3/4″ x 5″ and adhere to larger section of the Mint Macaron base. Cut another piece of the paper at 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ for the front fold, but do not adhere this piece yet.
  • To stamp the butterfly images, it is easiest to use the Stamparatus because this is a very large stamp. Cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 5 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ and place on the base of the Stamparatus. Position the butterfly stamp and once it is adhered to the acrylic plate, ink up the entire image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and stamp onto the cardstock. Cut out images with the coordinating Brilliant Wings die.
  • Color the butterflies with Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, Mint Macaron and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends. I used the three smaller butterflies and colored the larger of the three with the darker Blends. Don’t be afraid to mix all of these colors together. For some extra sparkle, brush with Wink of Stella.
  • Stamp the thank you greeting from the Very Versailles stamp set with the Memento ink and cut out with the small circle from the Tasteful Labels dies.
  • For the blades of grass, cut four large and four small grass pieces from Mint Macaron cardstock with the Dandy Wishes dies.
  • To put the card together, first adhere the largest butterfly to the larger front piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Next, arrange the grass along the top edge of the smaller front fold, alternating the heights of each piece. Adhere with multipurpose liquid glue for more flexible positioning. Adhere the smaller piece of DSP. When adhering the rest of the pieces, use Stampin’ Dimensionals on all of them. Adhere one of the butterflies at an angle, partially on the card front and partially on the grass, just using Stampin’ Dimensionals on the side of the wings that are on the flap. Adhere the last butterfly towards the bottom of the smaller card front. Adhere stamped greeting.
  • To embellish the card, add a few Elegant Faceted Gems. I also cut out two small vellum butterflies from the Brilliant Wing dies, curled the wings and adhered them to the grass with Mini Glue Dots. Add an Elegant Faceted Gem to each.

This special collection is only available until May 3rd, and I’m sad to say that the Designer Series Paper has proven to be so popular that is has sold out and is no longer available. The Natural Touch Specialty Paper is still available and the stamp set and dies will carry over to the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.
