DivaSC168 Nature Walk

Almost Christmas... just one more day. Don't freak! Play with paper instead!!

Today's sketch challenge has a little something extra thrown in. It needs to be completed on a card base that is not a square or rectangle. Really, it was just an excuse to play with some of the new dies coming out.... I knew you would want to see them and this was a great way to show you ;)

This small card was created using our new Framelits (Labels Collection). One of the great features of this product is that you receive it with multiple sizes of the same shape. You can see 3 here: card base, Designer Series Paper layer and stamped layer. And, since you can see where you are cutting, you can do your stamping first then cut out the area you need. Very user friendly!

Project Details:
  • The butterfly, from our Nature Walk stamp set, was inked using Chocolate Chip and Peach Parfait markers. To get the speckles on the wings, ink the image with the main color (P. Parfait) then gently tap the marker end of the darker ink (C. Chip) in a few places. Huff moist air onto your image as if you were fogging up a mirror and stamp.
  • The small flower adorning the sentiment was punched out using the flower in the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. Using Paper Snips, snip into the recessed area between petals to separate them a bit then use your fingers or a stylus to gently curl the petals up. A tiny Jewels Basic Pearl adds a special touch to the center.
  • A small strip of Espresso Baker's Twine is tied onto the Old Olive Satin ribbon, holding the ends in place. The satin ribbon is wrapped around card front and is also secured by adhesive behind the layers on the front of the card.
