Butterfly Summer Sunset


Hi everyone, I hope that you have had a great weekend. 


Mine has been very busy. School has finished here for a few weeks, so we have been at dancing on to different occasions over the weekend and I think that today is just been a little too cold, windy and I would have liked a longer sleep in!


Maybe that is why I have created a warm summer sunset for the latest challenge at Come and Get It.  Our current challenge is Bugs. 


My fellow Design Team members have created some great inspiration, click here and come over and have a look, we would love it if you joined us!


What Bug did I choose ?  A Butterfly.


I have created a summer sunset scene for my butterflies, which I have not done for a while and I wanted to have a play with some colours.


I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched out a Post-It circle with the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and added it to my cardstock before I started.


The colours I decided to use were More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and they have been added with a dauber. 


Once I was happy with the colours, I stamped the grass from the Inspired by Nature stamp set in More Mustard and then in Pumpkin Pie which had been stamped off first.


The butterflies were created using the Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die and have been layered together in a combination of Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight and Whisper White.  I have also added some ‘bling’ to the centre of the last layer of each butterfly.


The Pumpkin Pie 1/8” (3.2 mm) Taffeta Ribbon was a last minute thought.  The sentiment is from the Word Play stamp set.


Here is my card…






Stamp set: Inspired by Nature, Word Play

Card: More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Stazon Black, Daffodil Delight

Accessories:  1-3/8” (3.5 cm) Circle Punch, Pumpkin Pie 1/8” (3.2 mm) Taffeta Ribbon, Beautiful Wings Embosslits Die, Daubers, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive
