I believe in you (Botanical Butterflies DSP / Amazing Life)

by Kylie

Hi everyone, you’ve often heard me talk about how fantastic the catalogue is for providing inspiration.  I think the samples are AMAZING!  Sometimes the sample I love is a 3D project and I rarely do them.  So instead of thinking I can’t (or won’t) make that project, I think about how I might be able to convert it to a card.  Sometimes that is a very easy process – like today’s cards.  Other times, it is a little more complicated.

I was inspired by a project on page 9 of the first Sale-A-Bration catalogue.  It features a clear acetate box filled with Coastal Cabana cards and secured by a belly band of the super cute butterflies which had been cut out from the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  It looks good.

Here’s the Inspiration Piece…

I had to give it a try.  The fiddliest part is cutting out the butterflies but even that doesn’t take too long.  I didn’t worry about saving the antenna either.  I stamped them on later using the Butterfly Gala stamp set.  You could also draw them on with a black marker if you wanted.  I used Wink of Stella to add a bit more sparkle to the butterflies.  It really gave them a lift!

 Here’s the Card…

After making the above card, I had to make another one but this time chose Pool Party as my base.  So pretty.

Here’s the Card…

Seriously, isn’t this the cutest!  I think you could pick out any of the colours in the patterned paper and use that as your base.  Pick up a spool of the Whisper White 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon and you can colour it to match any of the backgrounds you like.  So effective!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope you have a great day!

Happy Stamping, Kylie
