STAMPlorations Things With Wings Blog Hop

Kicking of this Things With Wings Blog Hop… I created a mixed media card with some texture paste, Metallic Gelatos, stamping, and die cutting.

STAMPlorations Things With Wings Blog Hop

First, I added some texture paste on the background with the Delicate Links – ARTplorations Stencil, and then I added some of the Metallic Gelatos on it. I blended the colors with damp baby wipe. Then I run it through my die cutting machine with the largest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

For the butterfly, I die cut both base and top of the Flutter Zen 1 Layering Dies – CUTplorations with 2 shades of pink cardstocks. And I only added glue in the middle of the butterfly and I fluffed the wings a little bit for 3D look.

The sentiment is from the Fond Expressions 2 – Sherry Russ Designs. I stamped it on a white cardstock with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad and then cut it out and added it on the card with strong adhesive becuase it sits on tip of the stenciled texture paste background.

  1. Helen, you’ve created a fabulous background with the stained glass stencil; a lovely shimmery ‘landing spot’ for your beautiful butterfly!

  2. Ah, the stencil background is just so pretty! Love the subtle sheen and the beautiful colors that you’ve used in the background. Using the butterfly with the simple cardstock is just the perfect contrast for the background. Love it!

  3. Love the beautiful colours blended on the embossed background and your butterfly is a perfect addition to finish the card. Thanks for playing along with us at AAA Cards!

  4. Really like what you did with the stenciled background on this card. It creates a lovely setting for the butterfly and sentiment. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. such a pretty card 🙂 love the shiny textured background and that butterfly is stunning !
