Butterfly Birthday and Anniversary


These cards were all done with Stampin' Up! Swallowtail butterfly stamp. Someone had it at our Group Gathering and I made these cards with it. For all of them, I stamped the image with Versamark and used different colors of embossing powder.

On the first one, I brayered on the color using a Kaleidacolor pad. I stamped the sentiment after the brayering and embossed with white. I matted with white and used a colored card base.

For the second one, I embossed with gold powder and sponged the color on. The sentiment is from Inky Antics and is also embossed with gold.


The third one was sponged with one color - So Saffron. The sentiment was stamped with So Saffron, also. I matted with Crushed Curry and used a white card base.

This fourth one was sponged with Distress inks - Weathered Wood and Dusty Concord, matted with black and the sentiment stamped in black. 


Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Another gorgous card, Lynette! The butterfly stamp is fantastic. I've got quite a few butterfly stamps, but not one like that. So delicate and lacey. Great backgrounds too.
