03.12.21…..Happy Friday, everyone! It’s already time for another TGIF Challenge! We love bringing you weekly paper-crafting inspiration, and are so excited to have you join us in using this week’s sketch challenge for your inspiration! It should be a great one to spark wonderful creativity! We hope you have a chance to play along with us today! We would love to see what you create!
For this card, I started with some 2020-2022 In Color 6″ x6″ Designer Series Paper, and added it to a Basic White Thick Cardstock base. I used the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder with some Basic White Thick Cardstock, layered a slightly larger piece of Basic White Cardstock underneath, and used a few Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base. I also added a Basic White scalloped circle (cut out with one of the Layering Circles Dies), and embossed it with the Subtles 3D Embossing Folder.
To create the butterflies, I used Magenta Madness, Calypso Coral, and Crushed Curry (along a couple of Sponge Daubers) to randomly add color to the two of the butterflies from the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle. Before I stamped each image on Basic White Thick Cardstock, I spritzed the images just a bit with my Stampin’ Spritzer. After the stamped images were dry, I also added a bit of speckling with my Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker. (To create the speckling, I “flicked” the thick end of the marker against the inside edge of the marker cap, and “flicked” outwards toward the paper.) After I cut out the butterflies with the coordinating die from the Butterfly Brillance Bundle, I popped them up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The sentiment (from the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Basic Black Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. For some fun texture, I added a bow with some Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color Ribbon, cut apart vertically. For a bit of bling, I added several of the Woven Threads Sequins, and a few of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots.
