Stamp Review Crew: Butterfly Gala
Fun fact: a collective group of butterflies can be called more than one thing. A kaleidoscope, a swarm, or a flutter. But we are having a Butterfly Gala! I guess that means they get to wear their finest clothes and jewels, dance around, and eat delicious food. Oh, wait. That is just a normal day for a butterfly. 😊

Isn't this pretty?! I love the fonts and the sentiments too. So much you can do with this set.

New to the Stamp Review Crew? We are a group of Stampin' Up! lovers, either former or current demonstrators, and we get together on the first and third Mondays of every month to feature a different single stamp set.

If you are following along in order, then you have just arrived from my dear friend Jenny Hall's blog! Stunning, right?!

I was inspired by Lynnea Hollendonner's cards here: . I love the clean and graphic style here, but I had to resist the urge to add layers, texture, and dimension. 

The images are black heat embossed on Thick Whisper White. Then I used a watercolor brush with the tiniest bit of water and reinkers to paint the butterflies. They are covered with Clear Wink of Stella, which you can't see in the photos. You will just have to take my word for it. 

I made the sentiment with two stamps, and used Grey Granite for part of it. I wanted there to be some subtle contrast there.

There is a bit of a rainbow theme here too, with the colors of the butterflies.

I finished it off with the largest Stitched Rectangles die. 

Inside, I used the solid small butterfly image to stamp the different colors, then stamped in black ink over the top. If I had been thinking, I could have done that on the front and saved myself some time. 😂

That's it for me! 

Next up is the lovely Lauren Alarid. She always does something amazing!

Beautiful, Tanya! Your coloring is fabulous...and I love how you decorated the inside of your card, too!

So lovely Tanya. I love how they are just fluttering off the card. x

Cindy said...

Oooo, the two tone sentiment is a great idea! Love the bright butterflies, and had to LOL about realizing you could have saved time on the card front by stamping the colors. I’m always smacking my forehead after I realize I could have done something easier. 😉

What a gorgeous card, Tanya! I love how the butterflies travel through the sentiment.
