Layered Butterfly Flutter

Hi there and a good Saturday to you! Yesterday turned out to be a nice day for the most part. We had nice bright sun all day and then around 6:00 it started to rain. I did get some top down time so it’s all good. I went over to Heather and we went to Monty’s for lunch while we were there I saw Danielle’s boyfriend Derek and said hi. After lunch I came home and worked on a few projects and then stopped by my Parent’s to see Daniel for a bit. He was vacuuming with the Dust Buster and wouldn’t give it back! Around 7:00 Anthony and Bill came by and picked me up and we headed to Friday’s to meet up with Marissa for a better late than never birthday dinner for me! It was a great time and by the time I got home I was ready for bed! Today I’m off to Manhattan with my friend Sandy for the Mama Elephant Release Party downtown. That should be lot’s of fun! We are going to head in a little early and walk the High Line for a bit and have some lunch! What are you up to today?!

Today I have a simple card using a stamp set that has been sitting on my desk for a while! The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock with the front covered in a piece of Neenah Desert Storm. My background is a piece of Solar White 80lb. All of the Butterflies are from the Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped them in Simon Says Stamp Rosie Cheeks, Teeny Bikini and Hot Mama Ink, two of the large ones directly on the background and then one large and two small on a separate piece of card stock. The other three are cut out with the matching Hero Arts Color Layering Butterfly Frame Cuts along with the bodies and antennae that are stamped in Simon Says Stamp Black Ink. The background is adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL. I adhered all of the bodiesΒ with some Multi-Matte Medium and then adhered the three cut out butterflies to the card with Foam Tape. My greeting is from the same set and is also stamped in Black. To finish the card, a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh Gold, Ballerina and Orchid Sequins are adhered with more Multi-Matte Medium around the butterflies. The layered colors in the butterflies are so neat and I do love that they have matching dies! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! Thank you, as always, for coming by! I’ll have some pictures from the Mama Elephant Event tomorrow! Have a super Saturday! πŸ™‚

  1. Justin, this is a very pretty card. I love how you stamped some butterflies but added the cut out bodies and antennae on them. That is such a great idea. Who doesn’t love butterflies? Enjoy your weekend.

    1. Thank you HJ! It’s a cool stamp set and has been patiently waiting to be used! I hope that you are having a nice weekend! πŸ™‚

  2. Good Morning Justin! I love cards with dimension and when I saw this one my thought was “with a different saying this card is so absolutely perfect for Breast Cancer Awareness month!”
    Having the body and antennae with their own stamp and die is something I’ve never seen before but really like. Usually you just stamp the body and then add the wings cut with a die. This is fabulous.

    I hope you have a wonderful day in Manhattan. How could you not when you are going to a Mama Elephant release! Can’t wait to see all the new goodies and hear about this sojourn into “the big city”. LOL See you next Saturday…………..oh, I love saying that!

    1. Hello Grace!
      Thanks! Yes, the card would work great for breast cancer awareness month! I love the stamp set and the separate bodies are a neat touch!
      I did have a fantastic day in Manhattan! Got to meet the Mama Elephant crew and talk to Kathy from The Daily Marker, she is so nice! Can’t wait to see you next Saturday! XOXO πŸ™‚

  4. What a lovely card Justin! I love the pinks and purples of the butterflies, the ink is so crisp and the colors distinct. Sometimes my layered colors look muddy, you’ve layered them beautifully here.
