Hello Crafty Friends!
It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my teamies and I are showcasing stamps by Becca under her label 'Big Grins By Becca Cruger'.
I decided to work with the Buttercups And Butterflies to create a quick and colourful card using a partial stencil print from a Brusho session I had last week. Here it is ...
It was a pretty quick card to make. I simply turned the partial stencil print to find the orientation I was happy with, stamped my sentiment, stamped some butterflies in Daffodil delight, Pumpkin Pie and Real Red, layered on a piece of Pumpkin Pie card, layered on my kraft base card and finished with a little star on one of the butterflies.
This post was all scheduled and ready to go, when this morning something magical happened. I had been playing with some new dies last night whilst watching television and dropped them on the craft table before going to bed .... the I saw this this morning ...
Without realizing I had placed the butterfly on what was going to be today's project for sharing, of course I had to finish it off especially given the cards sentiment! Bees become butterflies. 😊
I added a vellum die-cut of the solid butterfly shape underneath the filigree one cut from gold mirror card and attached it to my card adding more sequins to finish.
The butterfly is one of the new CUTplorations Layering Dies called 'Flutter Zen 2' due for release very soon, in fact they might even be in their shop later this week.
Here is another close look at my sneak pre-view ...
