Square Butterfly Birthday

So! I have another square butterfly card to share with you today. I’m excited to share this card with you because I used a brand new stamp set from Happy Little Stampers 1rst stamp release!IMG_9641edited

I like to make my own stencils and then re-purpose the stencil for a second card. This card re-uses the stencil which I used to make this other card.


I masked off the card front and applied VersaMark with my ink pad. Then I added the gold embossing powder. I created some bg paper by sponging SU’s Real Red, Melon Mambo & Rich Razzleberry.  I stamped the butterflies in VersaMark and then heat embossed in gold.

I embellished this card with lots of gold embossing powder and one of the fussy cut butterflies.

  I’m going to play this card at Casology’s Week 158: PreciousTime Out’s Challenge #37: Friendship is Golden and Virginia’s View Challenge #17: Embellishments.

Butterfly Birthday

 I had fun playing with this stamp set this afternoon. I made 3 other cards with it. Here’s one. All of them will be hanging out in the Butterfly Conservatory soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hi Melissa, I’m so jealous that you get to play with these stamps!! Your card is gorgeous and love the berry colour with the gold, they are so rich together. And love the embossed background too. Always happy to see you at TIME OUT. You could pop this into the Addicted to Stamps challenge as well, we have an ‘Anything Goes’ theme.

    • Thanks, Shona! I would play along, but I’ve maxed out the # for LIM. Although, I suppose since I’m on the DT, it wouldn’t really be “playing” along, so I might just share it in the gallery? 🙂
