A Collection of Butterfly Collection Ombré Cards

Too Cool Classes!


Hi Stamping Friends!

Are you ready for a quick card with a big wow factor?!  I didn't know what to blog about today, so I went into my studio to make a quick and simple card.  I ended up making 6 colorful cards in just a little over an hour. 

Check out my rainbow collection of Butterfly Collection cards…

I don't know about you, but for me there is something very satisfying about creating a bunch of cards that are coordinated in some way.  Lining up all of the finished cards together and admiring them makes me happy, happy, happy!  Yippee!

Butterfly ombre - crushed curry 

Inspired by Jenny Peterson at Lakeshore Stamping.

Beautiful Butterfly Backround—I used the Butterfly Collection Jumbo Wheel to create this ombré inspired patterned background.  The wheel image has three rows of butterflies, so as I added more images, I changed the ink colors to go progressively darker.  From top to bottom I used: So Saffron, Daffodil Delight and Crushed Curry.

I stamped on a 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" piece of Whisper White, then added a 3/8" Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon before mounting it onto a Crushed Curry card stock base. 

Perfect Sentiment—I stamped the Perfect Pennants sentiment in Crushed Curry on Whisper White, then die-cut it withe matching Banners Framelits.  It's popped up with Dimensionals over the ribbon.

Butterfly Accent—I punched a Bitty Butterfly from Crushed Curry card stock, then attached that with a Dimensional and added a couple of Pearl Jewels. 

DONE!  Quick & easy!

Butterfly collection wheel stamp 

Wheel Stamp Modification—So, my trick for lining up the images was that I converted my Butterfly Collection Jumbo Wheel stamp into a regular, non-rolling stamp!  I like that it gives me more control than a wheel.

I simply slit the seam of the wheel stamp with a craft knife and carefully pulled the rubber from the roller. The rubber was about the same width as the "I" clear block, but it was a little it longer than the block, so I trimmed off one column of three butterflies to make it fit the block perfectly.  I can use the trio of butterflies as another small stamp now.

Then, I cut off a piece of the Clear Mount Cling Foam a little larger than my rubber and mounted it on the back.  I trimmed the edges so they were flush and voila, it's now a regular stamp!

TIP: If you use wheels on larger projects, like scrapbook pages or gift wrap where you need a long, continuous image, I don't recommend disassembling your wheel.  But, if you are only use them for cards and smaller projects, it's a better alternative, in my opinion.

Lining Up The Images—I like to just eye-ball my stamp positioning, but now that it is a regular stamp, it can be used easily with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for perfect alignment!
