Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks

Hi there...  Are you looking forward to spring just as much as I am?  We have had some glimpses recently and some potential warm weather in the next few days.  Can't wait!  These projects will hopefully help you feel the spring bug. 

I have 3 card projects for you that are super easy and feature the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks.  You can see my first posting using this mask HERE.  Be sure to check it out. 

1.)  Layered Butterfly with decorative corners.  The bottom of the butterfly is a light layer of Bermuda Bay and the butterfly detail is heavy, multiple layers of Bermuda Bay.  I applied my ink using Blending Brushes.

2.)  Roses and vines are Melon Mambo and Old Olive inks, again,  applied with Blending Brushes.  Basic White card stock cut 2-1/2 x 4 each.

3.)  This butterfly truly shows off why these masks have the word "Layering" in their name.  You can layer the patterns to get different affects.  Gorgeous Grape ink applied with Blending Brushes with a light base coat and multiple layers for the dark detail.

Making a Quick Decorative Background

Want to make a quick decorative background?  Have you seen the Butterflies & Flowers Layering Decorative Masks (#158142) in the January-June 2022 Mini Catalog.  

These masks are awesome but be sure to sign up for my blog notifications so you can see why they are called "layering" masks.  You won't want to miss that.   (Update:  new post LINK)

For this project,  I dressed up  the background by using my Blending Brushes and rubbing  Crumb Cake Ink over the mask.  Notice the subtle light and dark areas.  You can control how much ink you spread with the brushes.

The best part about this easy card is that you can use any stamp and die bundle. I have put a couple of suggestions below.

Hello Tulips! Step Card

Hello there... 

My card project today was from a product challenge I took part in.  My upline sends a random sampling of product that is being released, in the case,  from the 2022 Jan-June Mini catalog.  For this card I used a piece of the Flowerings Fields 12 x 12" Designer Series Paper and the Brushed Brass Butterflies.  

I am super excited that my card came in 1st place!  Yahoo!  So, let me share with you. 

Stampwithlisabrown hello tulips 1

Card Details:

  • 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Basic Black Card Stock - scored and folded at 4-1/4 to form card base
  • DSP 4 x 5-1/4 
  • Poppy Parade card stock 4 x 5-1/4 and scrap to die cut the letters

You will need five different sizes of the Stitched Rectangle Die.  You will cut the DSP with the largest one, then third and fourth sizes down. 

With the second largest and small rectangle dies, you will cut the Poppy Parade card stock

  • Once all rectangles are cut, adhere the largest DSP piece on top of Poppy Parade that leaves a 1/4" boarder.  Adhere with two (2) layers of Black Dimensionals for extra height. 
  • Do the same thing to the next sizes down except only use one (1) layer of Black Dimensionals. 

Die cut three (3) sets of "HELLO" with the left over small rectangle and scrap Poppy Parade card stock.  Glue letters together and adhere to center of card.  Decorate with a couple of the Brushed Brass Butterflies.

You can find the Flowering Fields DSP and Brushed Brass Butterflies in the Jan-June 2022 Mini Catalog, along with a ton of other great products!

One Sheet Wonder - Delicate Dahlias Sale-a-Bration Set

Our 2nd Sale-a-Bration (SAB) is under way and there are so many great things, especially with the July-August Mini (holiday) catalog releasing as well. 

Here is a One Sheet Wonder I made with the SAB stamp set called "Delicate Dahlias".  It is a 2-Step stamp set meaning, the is an outline and filler stamp.  Of course, I had to make them in my favorite color purple or in this case, Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Fressia.  

So I randomly stamped a full sheet of 8-1/2 x 11 Basic White Card Stock.  Below in my supply list you can see the colors I used or you can watch my video.  (Well, I will tell you I used several colors... Gorgeous Grape, Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam, and Soft Succulent).  

Let's take a look at how the sheet looked before I cut is up. 

Delicate Dahlias Background

Cutting your stamped background:

  • cut at 4-1/4" on the 8-1/2" side ending with two long strips that are 4-1/2 x 11"
  • turn and cut those two long strips at 5-1/2" (that will be the 11" side)
  • you will now have 4 pieces of quarter sheet card stock (or 4 pieces at 4-1/4 x 5-1/2")

Next:

  • trim 2 pieces above to 4 x 5-1/4" (see below cards 5 & 6)
  • cut 1 of the quarter sheets in half on the 5-1/2" side (end up with 2 pieces at 2-3/4 x 4-1/4).  See cards 3 & 4
  • cut last quarter sheet in half at 2-1/8 on the short side (end up with 2 pieces 2-1/8 x 5-1/4).  See cards 1 & 2
  • Using Contour Dies, die cut six labels in Gorgeous Grape an six small ones in Basic Basic
  • All card bases are Gorgeous Grape so you will need 3 sheets of card stock cut in half at 5-1/5 on the 11" side

Cards 1 & 2:

PicsArt_08-08-05.01.07

Background of Fresh Freesia card stock cut 4-1/8 x 5-3/8 and embossed with the New Merry Melody 3D Embossing Folder.  I added some Brushed Metallic Dots to both cards and some Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon and White 3/8 Glittered Organdy Ribbon.  Labels are popped with Dimensionals. 

Cards 3 & 4:

PicsArt_08-08-05.07.48

I put a mat of Fresh Freesia behind stamped dahlias that is 3 x 4-1/2 for each card.  You will need two pieces of the Gold 6x6 Metallic Specialty Paper cut to 4 x 5-1/4".  Add Gorgeous Grape sheer ribbon around Fresh Freesia, tie a knot then add to card with Dimensionals.  Add labels with adhesive on top and Dimensionals on the bottom.  Because it hands off the dahlia piece, you want the label to be flush.  

Cards 5 & 6:

PicsArt_08-08-05.08.02

These are easy peasy!  Adhere your 4 x 5-1/4 stamped pieces to card base.  Add some ribbon if you would like (I used a piece of the new Gold Shimmer Ribbon left over from another project).  Add labels with adhesive or Dimensionals.  Two quick and easy cards.
