A Butterfly's Delicate Flight

MemoryBoxDelicateFlight-PoppystampsHopeAndThanksStamps-OpenStudioStitchedRectangleLayers-JeanOkimoto-PeerlessWatercolors-ImagineCrafts-RadiantNeonsButterflies and flowers are great together and the new Delicate Flight design is the perfect combination for any occasion.   Create a stash of these - and some stamped greetings - and save yourself a trip to the cardshoppe.  A set of ten would be a lovely gift for a special teacher too.  Jean Okimoto here, let's get started...

Poppystamps Hope and Thanks Clear Stamp Set CL405

Imagine Crafts Products

  • Radiant Neons Inkpads - Electric Blue, Electric Green, Electric Purple
  • VersaFine Onyx Black Inkpad    
  • Daubers

Create a soft background by daubing light layers of Electric Blue, Purple and Green Radiant Neons onto the smoother side of watercolor paper.  Heat-set it with a dry iron on the cotton setting - and you're ready to stamp and watercolor.  

Use the two largest Stitched Rectangle Layer dies to custom-cut a narrow rectangle.  Cut it with the 3.4" x 4.4" die first, then cut one long edge with the  largest die to create a rectangle to showcase your stamped design.  

Add a greeting - from the Poppystamps Hope and Thanks set - and some sequins.  It's as easy as that - so make a few extra cards while you're at it.  You'll be glad you did.

Please visit our Ideas Gallery for detailed directions, supply lists, and more spring card designs.
