Watercolor Wings and Cottage Garden sentiments


I love this simple layout.  You could use it with just about any stamp set, but with the Watercolor Wings butterfly by Stampin’ Up!, the Daffodil Delight scalloped circle looks a bit like the sun.  Here are some details on my easy birthday card.

  • Colors are Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Sweet Sugarplum – so fun and cheery!
  • The butterfly is first offstamped in Sweet Sugarplum Ink, meaning that I inked up that bold background image, then stamped onto a scrap piece of paper, then onto my cardstock.  The overlay is full-strength Sweet Sugarplum Ink.  I added the butterfly body with Black Memento Ink.  While we do carry a framelit to cut out the butterfly, I chose to paper snip around the image so that I could include the body.
  • A good investment for your crafting supplies is the new Stampin’ Up! Layering Circles Framelits.  Not only can you create regular circles, but you can also create scallops – and both come in 8 different sizes, for a total of 16 dies!
  • Another great investment is the In Color Designer Series Paper Stack.  With 40 sheets, 4 of each of 2 double-sided designs in all of the new In Colors, you’ll be able to create lots and lots of cards and scrapbook pages with all of the colors on hand.
  • I love the little accents in the top right corner – they’re the White Perfect Accents, Sweet Sugarplum Enamel Circle and a small Rhinestone Jewel.
  • My sentiment again is from Cottage Greetings (I use this one all the time!).  If you don’t have this stamp set yet, please pick it up.   You won’t be sorry!  Lots of fun greetings for all of the occasions you love best.  In fact, here’s the same card using the “congrats” stamp.



  • When adhering the butterfly, I used a strip of Dimensionals down the center so the wings were loose and look like they’re fluttering.
