This past weekend I held a Stamp-a-Stack at my house where we created 12 cards, 3 each of 4 designs. This is the second of the cards I’m sharing this week.
I wasn’t a huge fan of some of the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper and this was a great way to use the paper but not overwhelm the card. I’m not sure why the Rhinestones appear yellow on all of the cards but I didn’t color them. I was inspired by this card created by Chiaki Haverstick. The new catalog starts this Friday and it has a beautiful new butterfly die that I need to try this with.
I decided to try the “Impossible Card” that everyone seems to be making. I followed Dawn Griffith’s instructions and I think it turned out really well. The only problem I have is that I was creating it for my son’s birthday this summer…my son turns 11 this summer. *sigh* I could only laugh. Well, it was a really rough first year… 🙂
Notice the Butterfly Basics cameo? I will miss that stamp.
I’ll be honest with you, I thought this stamp set would leave last year with Petite Petals. It really is a nice stamp set and punch combo but I always paired them together. I’m playing along with The Paper Players Challenge today (#PP390). (Notice I also used the Butterfly Basics “Happy Birthday”, I will miss that stamp.) I feel bad that two items on this card are already sold out, the Delightful Daisy DSP and the Pansy Punch are gone!
Here is the sketch I was following:

I will really miss Butterfly Basics, mainly for the Happy Birthday which fits perfectly on a 1″ strip of paper. I’ve used it many times. This card was inspired by a card created by Sandy Allnock that I thought was absolutely beautiful.
Here are some other projects I’ve made using Butterfly Basics:
I still have the Myths & Magic Glimmer paper on my table so I used it on this card too. I’ve got glitter everywhere. 🙂
I stamped the “Happy Birthday” from the Butterfly Basics stamp set on vellum in Basic Black Archival ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I did a double layer of the vellum to help the sentiment stand out over all that glitter.
I think I use the sentiments in the Butterfly Basics stamp set more than I use the images, they just seem to fit what I need whenever I’m looking. And I just can’t resist adding a flourish when the card feels like it just needs something.
I’m playing along with the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (#AHSC246).
