STAMPlorations Inspiration #93

Hey everyone!  I'm back!  It seems like forever since I last wrote up a post.  :-)  Well, I'm back card making again. We had a wonderful holiday. The Gaspe region of Quebec is really very beautiful.  It was really great to see my family too.

Anyway, it's time for an Inspiration post on the STAMPlorations blog!  We've got some lovely cards to share today.  I decided to play with some of the new CUTplorations dies. Take a look...

I die cut several small butterflies (Buttercups and Butterflies Coordinating Dies set) from watercolour paper and using Distress inks, I watercoloured the following colours on:  Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed,   Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Abandoned Coral, and Seedless Preserves.  The red Butterflies were made by combining Seedless Preserves and Abandoned Coral to make a darker red.  I spritzed them lightly with Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold mist.  I die cut a base for them (Bloom Happy Coordinating Dies set) from white cardstock. I scored in the middle of the butterflies so they would have some dimension and attached to the base.  I stenciled (Flourishes stencil) on my card base with Silver Delicata ink fading it out. I attached my butterfly panel with foam dots and stamped the sentiment (Trendy Feathers set) in black.

Well, I hope you go on over to the main blog and check out the other fab DT projects.  Don't forget to comment there for a chance to win a prize too!

Have an awesome day and thanks for stopping by!
