These beautiful flowers are from the Blossoms In Spring stamp set and are easily cut out with the coordinating dies. I added some dimensional fun with these beautiful Copic colored butterflies from the Brush Butterflies set. My steps for creating this pretty card are going to be brief, and I hope you will continue reading to learn the easy ways for how to use clear stamps and dies in my tips.
Create the card base:
- Ink the edges of a 4-¼” x 5-½” white card stock piece with Odyssey ink from Set #7. I used an ink blending brush to get a smooth blending of the blue ink.
- Die cut another piece of white card stock with the largest die from the Nested Rectangle Scallop w/Holes die set. Adhere it to the inked panel.
- Adhere the layered piece to a top-folding A2 card base.
Flowers, leaves, and butterflies:
- Ink the flower layers using the included layering guide. I used Sky, Odyssey and Azure from Set #7. I always use my MISTI when stamping so I can repeat if necessary. I used Custard from Set #1 for the flower centers.
- Stamp the leaves with ink from Set #11. I used Fern and Juniper.
- Die cut with the coordinating dies.
- Stamp the butterflies with Copic-safe ink and color with alcohol markers.
- Die cut the butterflies with the coordinating dies.
- Adhere the flowers. The top one with liquid glue, and the bottom flower with foam tape.
- Add a small dot of glue to the base of the leaves and tuck under the flowers.
- Add a thin line of glue to the center of the butterflies and adhere.
- When the glue on the butterflies is dry, bend up the wings slightly for some dimension.
- Add sparkle to the butterflies wings with a clear sparkle pen.
- Add small drops of Dandelion Yellow Nuvo drops to the flower centers for some fun dimension.
