Ever find yourself in awe of Butterflies?

Take Flight, is just mesmerizing, it was designed to give your project or card a 3D effect! We were encouraged by Betsy to use the wooden-frame from ISC Fruitful sheet or create our own on the design below.

Isn’t this a beautiful image? I love the tree trunk with all the butterflies and it fits so perfectly inside the frame. After stamping the image, I colored it with a combination of reinkers and markers. I stamped the butterflies again, colored them, cut them out and attached them on top of the originals with foam tape under one wing for a little lift. The frame was done on a separate piece of c/s, colored the same way and cut out. I wanted the picture to be a little recessed so I  made two more card board frames, cut them out and attached my frame on top.

For the teal half layer, I stamped it with the Canvas Background and the calypso ink. For the lt green layer, I used a cuttlebug folder first, then stamped Little Specks background with leaf ink. Since it was already embossed, the image is mostly on the raised portions only. After cutting out the sentiment with an oval die, I attached it to two pieces I cut using one element of the Symbology 1 die. I used markers to edge all the layers.

What are your Favorite Flowers? Daisies, Poppy or Sunflowers?

This line has a lovely Spanish script, which would add a lovely accent as a background on any card, etc. The flowers on this sheet; Favorite Flowers are bold and simply lovely! The words are quite large. This line lends itself for lovely cards for that special person or friend in your life!

For my card,  I stamped the Spanish script with black ink on white card stock. On a piece of water color paper, I stamped the script using resist ink and heat set it. I used a mister to wet the paper and floated in various colors of dye reinkers. I was hoping for more resist with the script, but it absorbed some of the inks and ended up looking more like faint stripes. When it dried, I black embossed the flowers on it and cut them out. I used a large corner rounder on all the layers.

I had a piece of drywall mesh sitting on my work table so I placed it over a small piece of white card stock and sponged on ink from two different Kpads.  After removing the mesh, I black embossed the greeting and cut it out with a Spellbinders oval die.

Are you ready? Do you love realistic nature images? Well, the next 4 days will surely jump start your creativity! The Creative Architects were challenged to create unique card folds with these new lines!

Today we start with 2 card designs using Beautiful Butterflies II & III.

For this first card, we used a 4×4 Pop Out Frame  (original is not available, but I found a Pin of it) template. It looks a little intimidating at first glance, but it’s not hard.  Just follow the directions by starting with an 8×8 piece of card stock. After the scoring, folding and cutting, your card will be doubled in weight so I wouldn’t recommend a heavy card stock. The finished size is 4×4 when it’s closed.

This is the front, closed view. I started with white c/s, stamped the text with sunburst ink then brayered over it with a rainbow ink  pad. I stamped the reverse image flowers on top with black ink. The butterflies and sentiment were stamped on a separate piece of brayered c/s and cut out. I added some white gel pen accents on the butterflies.

The next two are the inside and inside top views in order to show how the inside operates. The inside was brayered like the front and on a separate brayered piece, I stamped the reverse flowers again and used a Spellbinders square to cut out the center. I used the frame it left around the opening and attached the cut out square to the backside of the card. The cut out butterfly is scored in the center and suspended by the green thread down the center and 2 small black threads on either side. I misted the outside and inside with a little gold Shimmer Spritz.

I worked this card a little backwards by starting with a 5.5 x 4.25 white card and cutting the turquoise and white layers to fit it. I did it this way in order to figure out what size to make my top, diagonal cut turquoise mat. After I cut it, I used a border punch along the inside edges and all layers were edged with a black marker before assembling.  I had some backgrounds I made previously (the pinkish one was done with dye reinkers mixed w/ water and spritzed onto c/s;  the turquoise was spritzed w/ bleach) and I stamped two sizes of the butterfly on them and black embossed them.  I cut two full butterflies out and used two sizes of butterfly punches on the rest. The sentiment was cut with an oval Nestie and I made a 1/2 inch faux brad and attached it to a 3/4 inch punched black circle and attached it in the upper right corner.
