Beautiful Butterflies

Don't these Beautiful Butterflies just jump off the page!

We made this beautiful card back in a March class. It was the first time I had worked with Stampin'Up's heat and stick. First we cut out the butterflies using Stampin'Up!'s exclusive Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die, stamped the butterflies and the Tempting Turquoise card stock card front in VersaMark and the Bella Toile background stamp, poured on Heat and Stick powder on the butterflies, heated them up with our heat gun, poured on Dazzling Diamonds and reheated them again. And voila!

The butterflies were attached with pop up glue dots to give a 3D effect.

Stampin'Up!'s beautiful designer paper and card stock coordinate perfectly. Once I open a pack of designer paper I write all the coordinating card stock colors right on the back of the pack. Perfect match every time!

Material used:

Stamps: Bella Toile background stamp, warm words

Ink: VersaMark, Tempting Turquoise

CS: So Saffron, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Flock Together DP

Accessories: Bigz Beautiful Butterflies die, dazzling diamonds glitter,Heat & Stick powder, eyelet border punch, small & large oval punch

Thanks for the visit and have a super day!

Mel and I were just talking about the heat and stick and the powders. I have them sealed in a bag and never have used them.
Thanks for the inspiration.
