At last week’s BYO Stamps ZOOM session, I designed three cards all with a Soft Sea Foam Base Card and Mint Macaron Layer. Every card had a floral theme and the first one uses the Field of Flowers Stamp Set with Butterflies.
My stamping is in Mint Macaron and Seaside Spray. I don’t think I’ve used this combination before, but I really like the colours combined with Very Vanilla.
Only three stamps from the Fields of Flowers Stamp Set have been used to create this project. The stamps are used in different ways.
With first generation stamping for the largest stem and flower, this is the main focus. Can you see where I’ve stamped the stem twice to extend it? I’ve deliberately left this uncovered so you can see how I’ve created extra height.
As my stamping is slightly wonky, I will probably pop a sentiment over the top of it before sending it. There’s a saying in crafting ‘if you can’t see it, it isn’t there!’ The recipient will be none the wiser, unless they’ve read this of course!
2nd generation stamping is then used for the background flowers by using just the top part of the stamp to create the smaller stems, and the smaller flower head.
For the butterflies, the shapes are pre-punched using the Butterfly Duet Punch. They are then stamped with the flower heads using a combination of second generation and more. This creates a unique pretty pattern on the butterflies where they are all different.
Using Glue Dots, the smaller butterflies are added, with a Dimensional to stick the larger butterfly.
Three small Pearls are placed in a triangle to add a finishing touch.
This will look fabulous in brighter colours and with a sentiment of your choice.
Pop back soon for one of the other projects from the class.
