Paper Crafting Blog Hop July 2024 - Flowers Galore!

  

Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop for July 2024 - featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom and Australia. We have a wide array of projects and design styles to share with you this month - and every one of them is spotlighting projects made with a Flowers Galore theme!

~*~*~*~*~

For my project I couldn't resist using my very favorite new product bundle - the Layers of Beauty - it's name says it all!

#163519 Layers of Beauty Bundle $56.50*

This bundle not only includes the stamp set and dies - but amazing masks that you can use to color your flowers. So easy - so fun - so beautiful.

I started with the image on the left that was colored using the masks and blender brushes (the one on the right I am coloring with Stampin' Blends).  Using my Deckled Circles dies - I cut out a flower focal point with the 4th from the smallest, and then a circle out of black with the next larger size.  Layering the flower on the black and popping up on dimensionals - this really sets off the focal point.

The sentiment is from the set and cut out using the little tag die from the die set - I then layered that piece on black also, and fussy cut around it to form a black border.  

This stamp is just so elegant looking on it's own - I used it with Tuxedo Black Memento ink on the inside of the card -


and my envelope -


 To get my colored twine - I used the current Baker's Twine Essentials Pack and colored the White twine with the Cherry Cobbler Blends -


Added a sprinkling of Basic Rhinestone gems to finish this beauty!

I hope you like it too. Thank you so much for stopping by and I would love to hear your thoughts and comments!

·       Basic White:  3 ¾” x 5” (card layer)

·       Petunia Pop Shimmer Gems: 3

Instructions:

1.     Fold the Petunia Pop cardstock in half to create the card base.

2.     On the Basic White card layer, stamp the largest butterfly from the Sketched Butterflies set, with Petunia Pop ink. Die cut it out with the coordinating die from the Sketched Butterflies dies.

3.     With a Water Painter, lightly go over the butterfly to blend the ink a bit and fill in the wings with a bit of colour.  When it’s dry, go over the wings with Wink of Stella.

4.     Below where the butterfly was die cut, stamp a sentiment with Basic Gray ink.

5.     Using a Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker, flick the brush tip against the inside of the lid to create a splatter effect all over the white layer.

6.     Glue the white layer to the gray layer and then onto the Petunia Pop card base.

7.     Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to stick the butterfly in the spot where it was die cut from (this will create a shadow effect and you will be able to see the gray layer when you look from the side).

8.     Embellish the card with three Petunia Pop Shimmer Gems. Place 2 to the bottom right of the sentiment and one to the top left of the butterfly.
