This Birthday Piggy in Tahitian Tide
Stampers Dozen Blog Hop...Color Challenge

Brilliant Wings in a Fabulous Frame

It is Thursday and time for the Create with Connie & Mary Challenge.  This week it is a color challenge.  


I have had this idea in my head and thought it just might work for this color challenge.


Here's how I made this card.

  • Use Blending Brushes to apply Orchid Oasis, So Saffron, and Pear Pizzazz ink to a piece of Basic White CS.
  • Cut butterflies in Basic White using the Brilliant Wings die set.
  • Cut the largest frame from the Fabulous Frame dies in Basic White.
  • Arrange and attach butterflies to the frame using glue dots or Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Apply Stampin' Dimensionals, Foam Adhesive Sheets, or Foam Adhesive Strips to the frame.  
  • Attach small piece of Stampin' Dimensionals, Foam Adhesive Sheets or Foam Adhesive Strips to the butterflies.  The next time I make this card I will cut the butterflies with a piece of Foam Adhesive Sheets behind the Basic White CS.  This would be easier than trying to hide the small pieces of foam adhesive behind the butterflies.
  • Remove the protective backings and attach the frame to the So Saffron CS.
  • Use adhesive and attach the So Saffron to the Orchid Oasis card base.
  • Stamp the sentiment from the Potted Geraniums stamp set in Versamark on Orchid Oasis CS.  Sprinkle with White Embossing powder and heat emboss.
  • Die cut the sentiment using a Stylish Shapes banner die.  Attach to the card front using Mini Glue Dots.
  • Color a few Iridescent Rhinestones with the Dark Orchid Oasis Stampin' Blend and attach them to the card.
  • Adhere  Basic White CS to the inside of the card.  Add a strip of Orchid Oasis CS and a stamped and die cut butterfly.

Hi Sharon. I've been thinkning of you and wanted to stop in to say hello. Your card is so gorgeous, as always. I love this color combination and design. I love that you used white for the butterflies - makes them stand out so beautifully. I always love the way you treat the inside of your cards. Crafty hugs. Stephanie
