SparkleNSprinkle - Swallowtail Butterflies #1

Hello friends!


I'm here today to share with you my newest SparkleNSprinkle creation - this gorgeously golden card I made featuring the Swallowtail Butterflies Digi Stamp!


Here is my Supply List:

Alrighty!  Let's get creating!
First, I embossed my card base with a Butterfly Pattern Embossing Folder.  I applied the Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse all over the embossed pattern.   Using the Gold Marker from the Ember Glow Set, I spotlight colored one of the butterflies. You can't really tell too much from the pictures - it's on the bottom right hand side.  Next, I used the Crackle Background Stamp right over top of the embossed background.  I stamped with Versamark Ink and embossed with Magic Speckle Embossing Powder. I just LOVE the effect it made!  So light, but yet so interesting!  I think I'm going to LOVE this stamp!



After printing out my Swallowtail Butterflies Digi Stamp (in colored version), I fussy cut this gorgeous butterfly out and covered the entire image with Versamark Ink, then embossed with Clear Detail Embossing Powder.  This made the colors just pop and gave it a very shiny finish!  I adhered some Sterling Glitter to the butterfly with the new Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive.  Finally to finish off the butterfly, I rubbed a bit of Pink Flambe Embellishment Mousse around the edges very lightly.
I cut out 2 layers of cardstock with the Cockle Shell Tonic Die (I just LOVE these layering dies!) and once again grabbed the Indian Gold Embellishment Mousse to add dimension and shine around the edges. I use the Mini Blender Brushes to apply the mousse. 


All the layers were adhered with 1/4" Tear-ific Tape. I finished off the card with a ring of Indian Gold Crystal Drops around the Cockle Shells.



I hope you enjoy this card and will check out the SNS Store for some of the products I used!  See you next time a

First up, the lace background technique!  I took a piece of Sticker paper and cut it down to 4"x5.25". I removed the protective backing and exposed the adhesive, then carefully laid down my piece of lace. 


I sprinkled on my Daffodil Embossing Powder and burnished it in well, making sure that it covered all the exposed adhesive.

I brushed off all the excess powder, removed the lace CAREFULLY and did the same process with my Silver Pearl Embossing to cover all the remaining exposed adhesive. I carefully pressed it in so as not to disturb the daffodil powder.  After brushing off the excess powder, I heat set and voila!  Beautiful lace background!



Next up, I played with my Lemon Sorbet Embellishment Mousse!  I brushed it on the edges of my background and of my printed Digital image. I love these Mini Blender Brushes 1558e.

 
Next step - FLOCKING!
I used the Canary Flocking to add some dimension to our mama's dress. I used the Medium Nuvo Glue Pen to add adhesive, then sprinkled on the Canary Flocking, carefully pressing in to adhere.  I also added some Peach Belinni Microfine Glitter to her flowers and Sparkling Snow Glitter to the MOM lettering.



I added Limoncello Jewel Drops, Morning Dew Crystal Drops and Dandelion Yellow Crystal drops for some added embellishment.


 

The buttons were from my stash and I dipped them in Versamark Ink, then embossed with the Silver Pearl Embossing Powder.

All my layers were adhered with 1/2" Tear-ific Tape (you gotta have this stuff in your stash!).

 

I hope you enjoyed my project.  I can't wait for you to hop along to Anne's Blog HERE to see what gorgeous creation she has came up with for you!

Until next time,

Jess
