Watercolor Wings and Bold Butterfly Framelits

Watercolor butterfly

I’m sure by now you’ve seen lots and lots of samples using the coordinating products Watercolor Wings stamp set and the Bold Butterfly Framelits by Stampin’ Up!  But really, the possibilities are endless!  And you save by purchasing both in a bundle!

  • I’m totally hooked on the new 2015-17 In Colors.  I just can’t get enough of them!  And in my opinion using Basic Black with them just makes them pop.  I tried using the Tip Top Taupe as the card base and butterfly, and it just wasn’t as pretty.  Check out another card using 2015-17 In Colors and Basic Black HERE.
  • I began by running a strip of Delightful Dijon cardstock through the Big Shot with the brand new Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.  Another great one to use would be Fluttering with the embossed butterflies.
  • Rounding the corners on the Mint Macaron cardstock softens the look and coordinates better with the Watermelon Wonder cardstock circle which was cut with the 2-1/2″ Circle Punch.  The leaf that’s stamped tone on tone comes from World of Dreams stamp set.
  • Now for the fun part – creating our butterfly!  I ran Basic Black cardstock through the Big Shot with the Bold Butterfly Framelit.  Then I used the framelit to trace a butterfly on the Watermelon Wonder Designer Paper.  I cut it out by hand with my Paper Snips and glued on the Basic Black piece over the top with a 2-Way Glue Pen.  After gluing, you can go back and trim more paper off if necessary.  I stamped the antennae on the circle then adhered the butterfly to the circle with one Dimensional in the center.

  • This beautiful sentiment is contained in the Watercolor Wings stamp set.  I love what it says and I love the font!  I stamped in Black Memento Ink – my black ink of choice for most projects.
  • Now for some accessorizing!  The sweet resin flower is from the new In Color Blossom Accents – 4 each of all 5 colors in a package!
  • The four black shiny circle accents are White Perfect Accents colored with a Sharpie.  You can color them any color you choose, and they’re self adhesive.
