Beautiful Butterflies.
by Pam Simpson

Hello everyone, Pam here today.. I love Butterflies and they will be disappearing soon, till next spring! so wanted to use this Poppystamp  "Beautiful Butterflies side kick frame and stencil" set.


I started with a white card size 6"x 7".. I put the Beautiful Butterfly frame central on this to die cut in my machine. this left me with a border for my mine card.


I used Tumbled Glass Ink, and the tiny butterfly flourish stamp around my frame.


Next I have shaded these butterflies.


the lighter Tumbled glass ink I swooshed across ..the darker Stormy Sky I ponced with the finger dauber, as I wanted a mottled look.

  You get separate butterfly die in the set, these I have coloured the same way .these will be shaped and arrange onto the the butterfly panel.

 shaped butterflies, I use a foam mat and my scoring tool, just drag from edge to edge and then use the tool along the center press down to make a fold.


I have used from my stash ..Dark navy blue with a silver sparkle.. main card size to larger than 6" x 7"  tent fold (top fold) card I always make my own card bases.


These cute tiny bees and trail  Poppystamps clear stamp set.."Little Kindness" CL445.. stamped in black ink and I used Stickles yellow glitter glue. also along center on my layered up butterflies.

Sentiment.."Autumn Leaves" clear stamp set CL485..Dark green foliage Winter Berries..Red.. Holiday Mistletoe, finished with a bow..

Thank you for stopping by Pam xxx
