We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes. This month we are featuring projects that are based on “B“ themes such as Birthday, Bride or Baby. We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.
You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below. The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.
I had started a watercolor project for this blog hop, but wasn't happy with my overall results. The front of the card was to have been entirely watercolored. I quickly realized I could just use parts of the watercolored panel and be quite happy. The cards below are what I came up with. Unless noted, all products are Stampin' Up!
I used one of the butterfly dies from Bold Butterfly Framelits to cut the butterfly shape for the above card. The floral image is from the Remarkable You stamp set and was embossed with White Stampin' Emboss powder. The design element behind the butterfly is from Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. The messy threads are actually a piece of cheese cloth and the sequins were some from my stash.
I used the Elegant Butterfly punch to cut this butterfly. Check out the design elements on this one...you won't believe what they are! They are the remnants or extra pieces you have left over when you cut out the long, wavy swirl from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits. Don't you just love it? You can use those pieces to frame central design points on your card or even the sentiment. The possibilities are endless. Frayed cheesecloth and a single sequin on the body of the butterfly finish this card off. Wink of Stella Clear was used liberally on both cards to give a bit of sparkle.
Thanks for visiting. To continue with the hop, please refer to the Blog Hop Line-up below. We hope to see you on next month’s Pals Blog Hop!
