I’ve made a set of note cards using some of the Butterfly Brilliance Dies. Such a gorgeous set. perfect for showcasing the pretty new In Colours.
Aren’t the new 2021-2023 In Colours beautiful?! Evening Evergreen, Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent and, Polished Pink. They all work beautifully together too.
You can see exactly how they are made in the replay of my Facebook Friday live this week over on YouTube. I hope you enjoy. Do give me a thumbs up and subscribe if you do. It really helps that YouTube algorithm in getting videos suggested to people who might be interested.
Introducing The New 2021 In-Colours!
A simple way to create a pretty card using a detailed die cut, a blending brush and an ink pad. Use a Blending Brush to pick up a little ink from your ink pad and holding the die cut in place blend the ink gently until it leaves a silhouette on the white layer. The Butterfly Brilliance is an absolutely beautiful stamp and die bundle. The dies are perfect for this technique.
You could either leave the silhouette of the butterfly as the front of the card or add the die-cut you have sponged for an extra layer as I have done. Use a couple of the mini dimensional foam pads to raise up the butterfly. The ornate thanks is a great stamp set to have in your stash with a lovely font and useful sentiments. Stamp it on the front of the card in another of the In Colours.
Don’t they make. pretty set! Great to gift. They just needed a box to fit and I had the perfect one. The Stamp Around The UK monthly YouTube Video Hop I am part of also goes live this evening. The theme this month is Anything But A Card. With the brand new gorgeous Pansy Patch bundle in my hand and spring in the air I decided to make a pretty box to gift packets of seeds . With it sat on my desk and the set of In Colour butterfly notecards complete I can see they will fit inside it perfectly! Happy days! Of course, I HAD to make one to match the notecards.
You will be able to see exactly how the box is made when the video goes live here on YouTube this evening.
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the Positive Inkers Design Team have come up with for the New Catalogue challenge. I’m sure we will have a ton of crafty inspiration showcasing brand new products from Stampin’ Up! I’m excited to see.
