Birthday Butterfly

There was some leftover scraps of a waterproof label paper on my work space. I use the paper to make return labels for my homemade envelopes. It was an idea to die cut the label paper with the sticky side up, stamp on the sticky side with ink, then color with Copics and then cover the surface with glitter. The butterfly is the result of this experiment. Used leftovers of pp for layering and the sentiment was cut on the Silhouette on white cs with a design I made up. Scallop edge is copy paper cut with punch. All was mounted on white card base.

Valentine Foil

Winner Top 3 

For Mod Squad: Foil 

It was my last Valentine card and I had the heart in my head but was not sure how to proceed. Then Mod Squad challenge suggested to use foil. So printed the wreath on laser printer and then stamped again in black (found that if I do the stamping before heat transfer, it smeared less). Heat set the Bubblegum Foil then added splatter in watercolors of hot pink and black. Cut the sentiment on Silhouette that I had printed a black box on the laser printer where the Sending would cut out. Heat set that and layered on a black Sending then mounted with Gina K connect glue. Added the hugs and kisses tag then mounted all on Bubblegum cs that had been sent through embossing folder.

Two Stamps

For Mod Squad: Use multi stamps

Had this set of stamps for a while and just never used much. Thought the layout would lend itself to using two in the set. Stamped in black on white layering cs with Misti. Then sponged on some colors. Added bling of Vintage Glass Glitter in Krystallos. Tag was cut on silhouette then sentiment stamped in black and layered on with bakers twine.

Butterfly Stencil

Started with stamping wreath on white then scan so I could print it on my toner printer. Then used laminator to foil the design in Wild Dandelion. Next stamped wreath again in black over the foil. Added the butterflies with stencil that was sponged in Bubblegum and Red Hot ink. Added band in pp with a tag that has sentiment in black stamp. It is to be a winter theme. There are butterflies in winter somewhere, isn’t there?

For Mod Squad: Winter Theme with a Stencil

Two Step Stencil

For Mod Squad: Winter using Stencil

Made the stencil with stencil material on Silhouette from a Silhouette file called Leaves & Berries. Placed the stencil on pp then spread foil transfer gel. Once the gel dried I used laminator to heat transfer Lovely Lavender Foil in the leaves and berries pattern. Then cut that sheet into the panels on this step card. The snow flakes and sentiments were cut on Silhouette on white layering weight paper.
