Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Hues of Highland Heather

Last week’s Card & Cuppa project was all about using one colour, this one was hues of Highland Heather.

Hues of Highland Heather using SAB Botanical Butterfly DSP from Stampin' Up!. Card & Cuppa project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

It uses the Highland Heather piece of fabulous FREE SAB Botanical Butterfly DSP as a background.

Stripes of Sheer Whisper White Ribbon are then coloured using the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Combo Pack to create a light and dark strip. These are attached with Tear & Tape to keep them secure.

With Whisper White Ribbon and Stampin’ Blends, you can create ribbon in lots of different shades for all of your projects.

The butterflies are created using the Stampin’ Blends to colour a strip of Whisper White Cardstock. These are then cut out using the Butterfly Duet Punch from the Spring/Summer Catalogue.

‘A little note’ from the Butterfly Gala Stamp Set is stamped in Highland Heather and I’ve added some sponge daubering to the edge, along with one of the white butterflies.

Wink of Stella is used on all the butterflies to give a shimmery effect, although it doesn’t show very well in the pictures.

Glue Dots are used to attach the butterflies to the project at the end.

As the base card is from Thick Whisper White, it creates a delicate monochrome-esque look. Perfect for any occasion.

I think I may create a similar project using the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack for a floral design.

Sale-A-Bration only runs until the end of this month, so make sure you don’t miss out on getting your hands on some fabulous FREE products.
