Butterfly Gala In Colors
September 17, 2020
Ready for another Create with Connie & Mary Challenge? This week it is a super fun Color Challenge! After looking at my card, can you guess what it is?
Have you figured it out? Yup, the challenge is to use all the 2020-2022 In Colors.
The main In Color I used was Magenta Madness. I know it is not everyone's favorite since it is such a bright and vibrant color. It's funny because I love it for those very reasons. The patterned paper used for the background is one of the designs from the In Color 2020-22 DSP pack. The butterfly from the Butterfly Gala stamp set is stamped on another of the patterns in the In Color DSP pack. The butterfly was punched out using the Butterfly Duet punch.
The sentiment is from the A Little Lace set. The Stamparatus was used to stamp the sentiment in each of the In Colors. This method is called Hinge stamping, which means you move the plate down one step or hinge each time so you have perfectly spaced images. The space between each hinge is about 1" . I stamped the Magenta Madness sentiment and cleaned off the ink (Simply Shammy works great to do this). Moved the plate to the next hinge and inked and stamped the sentiment in Just Jade ink, cleaned the stamp, moved to the next hinge, inked the stamp in Cinnamon Cider, and stamped. To stamp the Bumblebee sentiment I repositioned the stamp on the Stamparatus plate so it would stamp between the Magenta Madness and Just Jade sentiments, inked the stamp in Bumblebee and stamped. The process was repeated by moving the plate to the next hinge and inking the stamp in Misty Moonlight and stamping. Each sentiment was highlighted by placing the corresponding In Color enamel dot next to it. Inside I added a strip of Basic Black cardstock and 2 more butterflies stamped using Butterfly Gala stamp set and punched using the Butterfly Duet punch.
