After a one-day reprise to play with my Flowering Cactus Product Medley, I’m playing with some of the products from Stampin’ Up!’s Butterfly Bouquet Product Release again. There are two papers on this simple card from the new product release (and both of these are exclusive to this promotion). I couldn’t love the focal panel of paper more than I love this one. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Butterfly Bijou and Natural Touch. Stampin’ Up! rolled out the Butterfly Bouquet Product Release on Tuesday – and it’s incredible. There is more information on the product release at the end of my post – for now, I’m focusing on the two papers featured in this release. While both of these papers are included in the new release and coordinate beautifully with the new Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, these papers will not carry over into the upcoming catalog and are only offered as a part of this release through May 3. Here’s a look at the colors and patterns in the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper:Behind the Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper on my card is a panel of the Natural Touch Specialty Paper. This 12″ x 12″ paper features two pages of a thin, pale woodgrain paper with a lightly embossed texture. Here’s a look at the Natural Touch Specialty Paper:The Butterfly Bijou panel on my card measures 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″, and the Natural Touch Specialty panel measures 3-1/2″ x 5-1/4″.
- Enjoy the Moment. There’s something to Springy and peaceful about the sky-filled butterflies in this page of Butterfly Bijou 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper – it’s almost like we just witnessed a kaleidoscope of butterflies heading home after a cold winter. I wanted the perfect sentiment to go with this beautiful moment – and there’s none better than “ENJOY THE MOMENT” from the stamp set of the same name. Here’s a closer look: I heat embossed each of the words with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Basic Black cardstock one-senitment-at-a-time by isolating each word with tape before dipping the stamp into Versamark. I punched each word with the Classic Label Punch and lined them up along the left side of each word. Here’s a look at the Enjoy the Moment stamp set: Along the right side of each word, I added a single Matte Black Dot, giving me a perfect accent to each important word. Here’s a look at these wonderful embellishments:
- Color Combination. There are two colors on the panel of Butterfly Bijou I showcase on my card – So Saffron and Bermuda Bay. There’s even a touch of Mango Melody in the butterfly wings. The soft colors on the watercolor-patterned paper are emboldened by the Basic Black borders on the butterfly wings. Black makes soft colors softer and bright colors brighter – love it. If you like this mix of So Saffron, Bermuda Bay and Basic Black as much as I do, I hope you’ll save this for future reference:
