Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - Irresistible Butterflies
Thank you for joining us once again for the Stampers' Dozen Blog Hop! This month we are showcasing Sale-a-Bration (SAB) accessories. My favorite one is the Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper on page 15 of the SAB brochure; item 138635.
I was inspired to make this card by Linda Heller who stamped onto the DSP with a background stamp before sponging it with color. So, on this card I used a butterfly from Papillon Potpourri to stamp onto the Irresistibly Yours DSP with Memento Ink. Then, I rubbed it with a tissue and had a BIG BLACK MESS! So...learn from my mistake. Once you stamp black ink onto this paper, cover it with a tissue and roll your brayer over it. Lift off and repeat again. Finally, rub the leaves clean with a kleenex or used dryer sheet or Swiffer cloth.
It is time for you to hop along to Patty Chenail's blog to see what that talented lady has to share with us. It will be a surprise for me too! Or, if you missed it, you can go to Carol Payne's blog by clicking on the "Previous Blog" button. Or, you can scroll down before you leave for another little tip about what can be done with that butterfly!
The NAME was printed in black onto Daffodil Delight on the computer. Then, I punched 3 black decorative labels and stacked them up with the D. Delight piece on top using Mod Podge. I molded it to form a slight outward curve. The following day, this was added to the front of the butterfly with glue dots. I the photo below, I used our Crystal Effects over the dried original butterfly. It is FABULOUSLY shiney!! Looks like porcelain. The Crystal Effects seemed to take a little longer to dry but was really worth the wait!
Thanks again for stopping by!
