Are you longing for springtime...dreaming of sunny hours spent in a lavish flower garden where butterflies flit lazily from blossom to blossom? Heartfelt Creations invites you to revel in the beauty of springtime with the release of the Butterfly Medley Collection of stamps, dies, and papers. This uplifting collection is bursting with bountiful botanical roses and a kaleidoscope of fanciful butterflies. Soft shades of pastel peach, lilac, sage, lemon, teal and pink are the perfect counterpoint for the bleak, grey days of mid-winter. Beautifully landscaped backgrounds include pastel plaids, cheery polka-dots, flowing script, classic stripes, elegant flourishes, seed packets, garden themed sentiments and images. Six hand drawn stamp sets featuring botanical roses and butterflies can be paired with two sets of dies, allowing you to stamp and die cut a host of embellishments with a single pass through your die cutting machine. You'll dream in beauty, plant seeds of encouragement and reap a harvest of creativity when you design with the Butterfly Medley Collection from Heartfelt Creations.
My design for the week is a gate fold card using just some of the beautiful stamps, dies and paper from the latest release.
Project Instructions: Cut a piece of white card stock to 6” x 12”, score the long side at 3” and 9”, fold to create a gate fold card base. Cut a piece of dark purple card stock to 5 3/4” x 5 3/4” and cut in half. Cut a piece of paper from the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection to 5 3/8” x 5 3/8”, stamp corners with Memento Grape Jelly ink using the corner stamp from Rye Grass Flourish Cling Stamp Set. Cut the stamped piece in half and wrap ribbon around center on both pieces; adhere on back. Adhere stamped piece onto the dark purple card stock keeping center edges aligned. Adhere this to the card base keeping center edges aligned. From dark purple card stock cut the center label using Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty-Five; lightly sponge with silver ink and attach to right side of card opening using foam pop ups. Stamp Botanical Rose flowers with Memento Grape Jelly, cut out using Botanical Wings die set, color with Memento Lulu Lavender and shape using McGill Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and Paper Blossoms Molding Mat. Apply glue to center of flowers and sprinkle with Silver Gala Glitz; set aside to dry. Cut dark purple card stock with Arianna Lace Die and attach to label with glue. Make a four loop bow with the silver twine, knot ends and attach to card with glue dots. Stamp the large butterfly from Botanical Wings stamp set with VersaMark ink onto matte silver paper, heat emboss with Ranger Silver embossing powder. Cut out using Botanical Wings die, add rhinestones to center of butterfly and add to label with glue.
Cut sentiment from Butterfly Medley Paper Collection using coordinating die from the Luggage and Tags die set. Add flowers to card along with sentiment. Use coordinating papers and panels, from the Butterfly Medley Paper Collection for the inside of your card.
