The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 24

Welcome to another Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge.  We have a sketch challenge for you this week.  I’m using the Stampin Up Butterflies Thinlits Die and the new Printed Vellum stack from the extra Sale a Bration Free Product List.

Most who know me, know I don’t really ‘do’ Hearts, Teddy Bears, Doilies and Butterflies!  BUT I have been tempted by these thinlit dies.

Butterfly Thinlits

Here are the instructions if you’d like to make your own card.

  • Fold a piece of Rose Red 105 x 298mm card in half, set aside.
  • Stamp Dictionary Background Stamp onto 80 x 148mm piece of Whisper White Card.
  • Cut a piece of Butterfly Vellum 80 x 148mm, and adhere to Whisper White Card using Glue Dots.
  • Adhere this to the folded Rose Red Card Base.
  • Cut a piece of Crushed Curry Card 30 x 105mm.  Cut a V into each end.
  • Wrap some Whisper White Cotton Twine around the middle of the Crushed Curry Card and tie in a knot.
  • Adhere the Crushed Curry Card to the card front, towards the bottom.
  • Cut out a Butterfly using the thinlits from Rose Red Card.
  • Adhere the butterfly to the Crushed Curry card using Dimensionals.
  • Stamp Celebrate onto a piece of Whisper White Card in Rose Red Ink, cut out.
  • Adhere the sentiment to the middle of the butterfly using Dimensionals.
