I’m back with another card for you today – this time I’m featuring the new line of clear stamps (yes, I said clear stamps!) from Spellbinders! I am so in love with these layered butterfly images and there are a bunch more gorgeous sets to choose from, too.
To start my card off, I did some ink blending using Distress Inks in Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn. I started on either end of my cardstock and blended towards the center, getting lighter as I moved in. This left an almost white space in the middle, but it looks like the grass and sky are meeting on the horizon. I love this look!
Next, I stamped out my butterflies using Butter Bar and Just Rust inks from Hero Arts. I did the black detail overlay with Raven Detail Ink from Brutus Monroe. I love how they make me think so vibrantly of Monarchs in the summer. I fussy cut each of my butterflies and set them aside.
I grabbed a piece of vellum and cut it down so it was slightly smaller than my ink blended panel. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment ‘let your dreams take flight’ in the upper right hand corner. I adhered my butterflies to the vellum in the centers and folded up their wings for some neat dimension. I used adhesive behind the butterflies and behind the sentiment to adhere the vellum to the ink blended panel.
I added a few clear droplets around my card and also went back and added some clear sequins to the bodies of my butterflies. I love how this gave an added sparkle and some more interest to my card. I coated my butterflies with Wink of Stella to finish things off!
Be sure to check out the new line of clear stamps from Spellbinders. There’s a certain floral image I’m dying to get my hands on!
Hugs and love to you all,
