Butterflies On Parade…Part 1

Hello All!

I had every intention to work on some Challenges…but…the beautiful

DSP by Elizabeth Beveridge, called Butterflies and Blooms,

that I received, free, in my Cardmaker & Papercraft Magazine…well…

…it was sitting on my Craft Table, calling out to me, to be used!

I started pairing this DSP to my  Stampin’Up! Cardstock…

…taking a good look at the DSP, and off I went!

Below are the 4 Cards I made!

Remember, I make 2 of each, so I made 8 Cards!



Card #1


The Card base is Purple Posy, one of the new In Colors! from Stampin’Up!

I used Blackberry Bliss for the Butterfly cut out and the greeting label and mat.

Butterfly cut out with Springtime Impressions Dies.

Labels cut out using the Stitched Labels Dies.

Basic Jewels Rhinestones on the butterfly and scattered around the card front.


Here is the inside of Card #1


Blackberry Bliss Ink to stamp and I used the

Light Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends Pen

to color is the 2 butterflies!


Card #2


Highland Heather is the Card base and the cut out! I also used Basic Black

to shadow the ‘Happy Birthday’ for the greeting!

They were cut out using the Happy Birthday Die.

I stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink, 2 butterflies and

colored them in with the Light Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends!

and then punched them out with the Butterfly Duet Punch!


Here is the inside of Card #2


The sentiment and butterflies were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

The Butterflies were colored in with the

Light  Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Pen.


Card #3


Garden Green is the Card base and the scallop oval around the greeting.

Granny Apple Green is the larger scallop around the greeting.

Scallop ovals cut out with the Layering Ovals Dies.

The 2 butterflies are stamped in Blueberry Bushel Ink.

the butterflies are colored in with the

Light Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends Pen

and punched out with the Butterfly Duet Punch!

The Stitched Labels Dies were used to cut out the label from

the Vellum Sheet, that is under the greeting.

The green vellum leaves are leftovers, from an older Paper Pumpkin Kit!


Here is the inside of Card #3


Blueberry Bushel Ink used for the sentiment, and one butterfly,

Granny Apple Green for the other butterfly, and

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink for the bodies and antennae!


Cards #4


Showing both of these, I placed the butterflies differently!

Purple Posy for the base, Blackberry Bliss for the butterflies, labels, and DSP mat.

Butterflies Dies (retired)- Butterflies,

Stitched Labels Dies– label

Stitched Rectangles Dies- for greeting

Good use of Rhinestones Basic Jewels for that great Bling!


Here is the inside of Card #4


Both Cards have the same inside!

Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight Inks for the butterflies

The sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss Ink.


I have a few more Cards in this paper to make! I will Post when I finish them!

Until the Next Post…Blessings and Butterfly Wishes to you ALL!
