Jumbo Curiosity: Butterfly

My daughter visited with her family and we had lots of time to craft together. This is my first card with the Jumbo Curiosity: Butterfly die by The Greetery.

After playing with the butterfly I figured out it works best to die cut and then ink blend using the stencil. I couldn't get it lined up the other way around.  I recently learned about Foundry Wax and thought it would look cool on the butterfly wings. I used the the end of a paint brush to apply the dots. I also splattered some of the gold onto the background but it is hard to see.

For the wood slice, I inked up the center part of the die with Early Espresso before die cutting so that the lines would show up better. After cutting I inked blended the outer ring with Vintage Photo DOX.

Supplies used:

Stamps: Sketched Wildflower Frame, Sentiment Suite: Birthday (The Greetery)

Paper: White, Kraft

Ink: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, DOX (Carved Pumpkin, Crackling Campfire, Festive Berries, Barn Door, Vintage Photo)

Dies: Jumbo Curiosity: Butterfly, Wood Slices, Sentiment Suite Basics (The Greetery)

Other: Foundry Wax-Gilded (Tim Holtz/Ranger)

Topsy Turvy Cake

 I have a thing about cake stamps & dies. I love them. So when I saw this funky die set it went right on my wishlist. When it came back in stock I immediately ordered it. This card is for a couple at church celebrating their anniversary next week.

The cake has 5 layers to choose from and I went with 3 of them.  I ink blended each layer with distress oxide. From top to bottom I used: Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo & Picked Raspberry. To add some bling I cut the frosting out of a Pop-Up Die Cutting Glitter Foam Sheet in white  by Spellbinders. The sentiment is hot foiled.

Supplies used:

Paper: Melon Mambo (SU), gold foil

Ink: DOX (Picked Raspberry, Kitsch Flamingo, Spun Sugar)

Die: Crimped Frames (The Greetery)

Other: Big Dots embossing folder-ret (SU), Pop-Up Die Cutting Glitter Foam Sheets-white (Spellbinders) 

Hot Foil Plate: More Sentiments (Spellbinders)

Hot foil: Shiny gold (Spellbinders)
