I was having a lazy Sunday afternoon so decided to have another little play with the gorgeous Clearly Besotted Stamps and also the Butterfly Wishes dies I bought to co-ordinate with the stamps.
This is my first attempt with co-ordinating stamps and dies so I want to send massive thanks to Michelle at the Card Grotto for her brilliant video explaining how best to align them, and so what I thought was going to be a difficult task was actually easy peasy! So thanks Michelle, you're a star! You can find the video here.
I am entering this card into the latest challenge at Less is More, to produce a card based on this sketch:
And here is my card...
I started by masking off a panel and then used a tinted embossing stamp pad to stamp the butterflies and leaves and then heat embossed using a sparkly embossing powder. I wanted the background panel to be subtle but as usual, my photography isn't great, so hopefully the next photo shows the embossed panel a little better...
I then stamped three more butterflies with coloured ink and heat embossed with the same powder, die cut these with the matching die and popped them up on 3D foam. I finished off by stamping the sentiment in the bottom corner.
- Stamps: Clearly Besotted Stamps - Butterfly Wishes and Leafy Accents sets; Sentiment: Personal Impressions - Mix & Match set
