Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop – May 2022

We are a group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world and our goal is to inspire you to make and send cards to family and friends. We’re trying something new, and we hope you’ll enjoy the variety. Designers can use the image or the color challenge or both as our inspiration for creating our cards or projects. Here is May’s image and color challenge

When I saw the image, I knew I wanted to use the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle to create my card. I thought it would be fun to use the Stitched Greenery Die to emboss the Pear Pizzazz cardstock to make a background of leaves, similar to the background of rocks in the original image.

I selected three different butterfly dies from the Brillian Wings Dies and used the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut them out using Rich Razzelberry, Cajun Craze, and Daffodil Delight cardstock. I also used the butterfly background dies and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to cut out three different butterfly backgrounds using Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, and Pacific Point cardstock.

I stamped “The Best is Yet to Come” sentiment from the Celebrating You Stamp Set onto the card front using Evening Evergreen ink. I added a few Basic Rhinestones to each butterfly for a little bling on the card. Then I attached everything to the Evening Evergreen card base. In creating my card, I was able to use all the colors from the challenge except Soft Succulent.

To decorate the inside of the card, I used the Pear Pizzazz cardstock and the largest die from the Scalloped Contour Dies to cut out the scalloped background. I added a Basic White cardstock rectangle using the second largest rectangle die and the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Then I added a few small butterflies using Highland Heather and Cajun Craze cardstock.
