Stamp Simply Butterfly

FOR YOU!

Today we are matting, or framing, in white for a fresh, clean and springy look. You MAY use multiple mats on a panel if you like, but at least ONE of them MUST be white. That's it -- anything else goes for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge! For my creation, K & Company BW Madeline designer paper is utilized along with Papertreyink Ripe Avocado and Stampers Select white cardstock papers. I cut my white panel first, then ran it through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. The circle frame is first punched with an EK success 1 3/4" circle punch, punched around that opening using a Marvy Uchida (purple) scallop circle punch. The buttons are Papertrey ink, I added adhesive pearls for the centers. Stamped tag image is from Papertreyink's Paper Tray set. 3/4" and 1" circle punches are used to punch the sentiment and designer paper circles. The tag is attached using a fine silver thread from my local fabric store. The scallop frame is lifted using foam pop ups, as is the butterfly. In this pack of Madeline DP, there is one entire page of butterflies. I cut this particular one out to use on my card. Can you see the light pink FLOWER SOFT? Lightly dabbing with a glue pen, and pressing on the flower soft adds more dimension to the butterfly! Flower Soft is not just for flowers! LOL Three adhesive pearls down the center of this butterfly adds the finishing touch!

I hope you get a chance to play along with Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge! There is no time limit. You can play this challenge and upload your project at Splitcoast and/or your Blog, anytime. You can play as many times as you like, just remember to use the keyword, ssnotime78! The point is to keep it simple, quick and have fun! Hope you play along! Check out Sharon's blog for more info.

What a neat technique. I love this wonderful card. I really like the circle frame as it makes the card. And the white background makes that butterfly well, "fly"! Thanks for sharing.
