Anything Goes for Retro Rubber, Just a few Butterflies!

We have everyone's favorite challenge for the next two weeks at Retro Rubber, Anything Goes!  So have a little fun and share your projects with us.  We have a few simple rules 1) Use at least one stamp that is more than a year old 2) Tell us how old your stamp might be 3) Enter no more than 10 challenges including ours.

I decided to play around with some of my supplies and create a butterfly themed card.

  • I placed the Mini Flutterby stencil by Crafter's Workshop over a piece of white cardstock and spritzed it with Fireworks! in Lilac Posies and Lulu Lavender and let it dry.
  • The edges are inked with Elderberry Memento Luxe and heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.
  • To create the butterflies I stamped the Layering Butterflies by Hero Arts from 2015 in several Memento colors:  Elderberry, Sweet Plum, Lilac Posies, Angel Pink, Lulu Lavender, Grape Jelly, Bamboo Leaves, and Pear Tart.
  • The images are die cut with the matching Frame Cuts.
  • The outer edges of the butterflies are inked with the corresponding color to the butterfly body.
  • I pounced Versa Mark ink over the images and heat embossed them with Iridescent Embossing Powder.to give the lots of shimmer and shine.
  • The butterflies are adhered to the card front with glue dots under the body and dimensional foam adhesive under the wings.
  • The sentiment from the same set is stamped in Elderberry Memento Luxe and heat embossed with Iridescent Embossing Powder.
  • The card front is adhered to the card base with dimensional foam adhesive.
