Wednesday’s Card: Tri-Color Butterflies

Tricolor Butterflies

Tricolor Butterflies

Hi All!

I was inspired by a card on the Penny Black blog HERE. Aren’t those leaves so pretty? I used the same technique for these butterflies, then sprayed it with some pearl mist for shimmer. I like how this butterfly has a bunch of lines, which shows the ink under the white embossing.

In the video, I address a concern so many people email me about – Stampin’ Up! stamps falling off the block!! It happens to me in the video. 🙂

Believe it or not, I’m starting my Christmas cards! It’s my big project every year. I decided on this stamp set. I just need to get it ordered and hopefully it fits into the design I created. Of course, I will be posting it – probably next month sometime. I also started working on my Faber-Castell guest design posts… my first will be on October 1st!

Enjoy and have a great week!

    Very pretty. Saw the Penny Black leaves too and thought I’d try it. But I love this pink and black combo with the butterfly.

    Love it, Darlene, so very soft, simple and elegant. I think it will be great for a shower or a birthday. Every time I see you do those free hand lines I’m amazed at your steady hand. I’ve tried but maybe I’m trying to hard, I should just relax and do it.
    Thank you for another great video.
