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 Beauty-Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

Hello! Today I’m participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The thank you theme is a way for us to show our appreciation to someone that has inspired, helped or supported us in some way. When I saw the Rainbow Glimmer Paper in the new annual catalog I immediately thought that it would work beautifully with the Butterfly Beauty dies and it did not disappoint! I combined it with the Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper, which I knew I had to have the minute I laid eyes on it!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Mango Melody cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″ and fold in half.
  • Cut piece of Artistry Blooms DSP at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card base. I knew I wanted to work with the orange & pink color palette so I cut the strip of DSP at the full 12″ length and then cut the piece down to show the portion of the strip that had the most Mango Melody in the gradation.
  • Cut strip of Rainbow Glimmer Paper at 4 1/2″ x 12″ and again, decide what gradation you want to use and make the final cut at 4 1’2″ x 6″. Run piece through a die cutting machine with one of the two large Butterfly Beauty dies. I chose the one that had the solid outside wings. Adhere to DSP.
  • Stamp hello greeting from the Beauty Abounds stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento black ink on scrap of Daffodil Delight cardstock. Cut out with the small circle die from the Tasteful Touches die set.
  • Cut two pieces of Daffodil Delight Ruched ribbon, trim ends and adhere, criss-cross to butterfly. I found that either the Tear & Tape or Stampin’ Seal+ worked best when adhering to the glimmer paper surface. Adhere stamped greeting over the center of the ribbon.
  • Adhere Champagne Rhinestones on the butterfly for some extra bling.
  • For the inside of the card, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp greeting from Butterfly Gala stamp set with Magenta Madness ink. Stamp butterfly from Beauty Abounds stamp set with Mango Melody ink. Adhere to card.

I had so much fun making this card and it turned out exactly as I had pictured it. I’d be so appreciative if you would vote for my card by clicking on the vote image below.
