Beautiful Day from Stampin Up

You may think what on earth is unusual about this card but the wings sit proud of the card front and the card opens in the centre so that when its opened it reveals the greeting inside.

Beautiful Day Butterfly Card Stampin Up

I used the gorgeous Bundle of Love Speciality Paper which has an embossed gold effect on one side and pink or blue on the other side.

I coloured the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set with my Stampin’ Blends and the Always Thinking of You sentiment is also included in the same stamp set.  There is a gorgeous flower to colour too so lots of colouring fun to be had and a great value set as well.

Butterfly Card made using Beautiful Day

I stamped a butterfly and was colouring it for another card I was making using the Beautiful Day stamp set and I had this scrap which I was able to cut out with the layering squares framelits.

Butterfly Card using Stampin Up

I embossed a whisper white card base using the Layered Leaves Embossing folder and mounted a scallop square in Basic Gray and layered a smaller smoky slate square and then the stamped square.

It was a very happy accident that the die cut word ‘hugs’ from the Lovely Words Thinlits reached perfectly from side to side of the square frame (once I had snipped it out of its original frame).

The Butterfly was coloured with Stampin’ Blends in Pink Pirouette Light and Dark and Calypso Coral Light.  I edged the wings with crumb cake light to add a little shadow.

Simple but effective and a great way to use up your scraps and who does not love butterflies?

Beautiful Day from Stampin’ Up!

Who doesn’t love a butterfly?  I have used the Beautiful Day stamp set to create this Birthday card and focused on the butterfly image from the Beautiful Day stamp set.
Beautiful Day from Stampin' Up!

I chose a muted colour palette and although it is hard to see I heat embossed the birthday greeting in silver embossing powder.

How I made the Beautiful Day card

  • The Smoky Slate card front size measures 16.5cm x 9.8cm
  • The Whisper White Layer on the front meaures 15.5cm x 8.5cm
  • I stamped the butterfly from the Beautiful Day stamp set in Grey Memento Ink
  • The butterflies were coloured with Pink Pirouette Light and Dark Blends with a touch of Calypso Light Blends
  • The three circles are in the Beautiful Day set and I stamped them randomly in Smoky Slate Ink
  • The edge of the Whisper White card has been sponged in smoky slate ink
  • The Whisper White panel is raised up with dimensionals and I added some bling with rhinestones

I love how soft and muted it turned out.  All the supplies I used to make this card are shared below.  If you would like to order Stampin’ Up! products you can click my order online button on the top right of this blog and go direct to my Stampin’ Up! shop.  If you spend £20+ please use the monthly hostess code to receive a free thank you gift (please do not add the code if your order is £150+).

There is a promotion on at the moment called Sale-a-bration.  For every £45 you spend you can choose a free item from the saleabration items on offer (see the leaflet pdf shared on the right).  There are some lovely things to choose from.  More items are being added on 16th February too!
