What a great afternoon we had! We looked at sneak peaks and chatted about the new catalogue and all the great stamps and products that will be coming out on June 1st with the release of the 2012-2013 Idea Book and Catalogue (IBC).
For our group card we chose Wisteria Wonder for the card base, markers and ruffled ribbon. The front of the card base is embossed with the Framed Tulips embossing folder.
To create the beautiful floral image we used a Wisteria Wonder marker to colour in the flowers and a Basic Black marker for the stems. Before stamping we huffed on the stamp image to make sure it was moist enough to transfer the ink to the card stock.
The butterfly was first wetted in Versa Mark then in Basic Black ink before stamping the image on Whisper White cardstock. Once stamped, Clear embossing powder was applied and then heat set. The image was then coloured with Wisteria Wonder and Basic Gray markers.
Three basic rhinestones were used for the butterfly's body and the finished butterfly was mounted with dimensionals to the card front.
The sentiment "Just for You" from the Tea Shoppe stamp set was also stamped in Basic Black ink and heat embossed to add some dimension.
Three butterflies were stamped on the Whisper White card insert on the inside of the card and coloured as above.
