Bibi’s Butterflies Collection Cards | Spellbinders


Hello, my friends. Happy Monday and Happy Valentine's Day! Can you feel the Spring in the air yet? Everything has been melting around here, we have had the strangest winter this year. I hope it's a sign that spring is near for us. We always have such long winters.

Today I have three cards to share with you featuring my friend Bibi's Butterflies Collection. I am so happy for Bibi and love the creative collection she designed, perfect for so many occasions as you will see here.

CARD RECIPE


This first card features the gorgeous Delicate Butterflies Etched Dies. To make this pretty card I die cut from white cardstock two of each of the butterflies from the set. To create the I then rainbow layer of the butterfly, I ink blended a whole panel first mixing yellow, pink, and blue ink to create a rainbow blend. I then die cut the base of the wings from the panel and then assembled each butterfly. 



To the top layer of the wings, I add sparkle using Liquid Pixie Dust. Hard to see from the photo but they are so pretty in real life. For the bodies, I added a top layer that I die cut using gold foil paper. Next, I created the gold foiled sentiment using the Everyday Sentiments II with the Hot Foil System. The rest was assembling it all together onto the card panel and adding gold foil pearls.


For this next card, I used the Butterfly Card Creator Etched Dies. Onto an A2 side folding card base I glued half of the body of the butterfly that was scored down the middle of the butterfly and folded back. This card displays beautifully as you can see below. It will fold flat but it does have a bit of bulk to it and you will need to use a larger envelope as half the body of the butterfly hangs over the edge.

I created the rainbow flowers the same as I did with the previous butterflies. I then used green ink to blend out the leaves. I finished the flower centers using gold pearls, and also added them to the tiny antenna tops. Here again, I used the Everyday Sentiment II to add my foiled greeting.


Once you open up the card, you are surprised with the pop-up butterfly surprise. This was done using another one of Bibi's sets, Pop-Up Butterfly Etched Dies. So fun to see it pop from the center when you open up this card!


Here again, I used the same three inks to blend out the wings. I also used the same foiled sentiment set and added the sentiment strip to the tip of the wing to also make it pop off the paper.


For this third and final card, I used Bibi's So Many Butterflies Etched Dies to create this frameless shaker card or edge-to-edge card as some call them. To each wing layer, I blended out a different color on the wings. On the pink layer, I applied some glimmer paste using the dot design from the Geometric Butterfly Stencil. The white detail wing layer comes from the Pop-Up Butterfly Etched Dies, I just cut the center tabs off. I love how this whole collection works so well together!


To the card panel, I gold foiled the frame using the Essential Duo Lines Rectangles Foil Plates. I then created the shaker pocket using clear packaging and filled it with tiny star sequins I had in my stash. Watch this video if you want to see how these pockets are made 👉HERE.


To finish this card, I then added all the elements to the front of the shaker panel using a strong adhesive, and then once again added a sentiment from the same Everyday Sentiment II foil plates.


I hope these beautiful Spring rainbow-inspired cards made you smile. I had so much fun playing with this collection and hopefully, they inspired you. A special thank you to Bibi Cameron and Spellbinders for inviting me to create with her gorgeous collection!


Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!

New Collections Inspiration ft. Destination China | Blog Hop + Giveaway | Spellbinders


Today I am super excited to join Spellbinders for their New Collections Inspiration Blog Hop. My cards feature the Destinations China Collection by Lene Lok

In 2008, my Husband and I visited a few of the cities in China and of course many of their famous tourist spots. We had such an amazing experience and would one day love to go back. This die collection reminded me of the wonderful trip we had and the beauties we saw in China. 

Look at what a beautiful card these intricate dies make! I think this card is perfect for the upcoming 2019 Chinese New Year.

CARD DETAILS
To make this card I began with the background. I die cut Lucky Clouds Etched Die twice, stacked and glued the two layers together and then glued them to an acetate piece trimmed to size. I then cut out a rectangle opening in the card base and glued the clouds in place.

Next, I die cut two of the Etched Lanterns out of a red and gold shimmer cardstock, pieced and glued them together. I then added some gold crystals for detail.

For the sentiment, I used an old Recollections stamp set I had and embossed the letters in white, trimmed it and added it to the bottom of the card.

Before gluing the lanterns onto the clouds, I used a thin wire and strung it through the openings of the clouds and then glued the lanterns in place securing the wire down as well.

For this next card, I wanted to recreate the look of a Chinese screen door. In my head, I was thinking of a missing you card for a friend or family member, or even for a welcome to a new home card.

To make this card, I used the Traditional Fence Etched Dies to create this Square Doorway. 

I began by using the large outline die to die cut the grey background piece. I then used one of the fence dies to die cut two doors from a darker grey piece of cardstock and trimmed them to fit onto each panel of the doorway. To the back of each fence, I glued a piece of vellum trimmed to fit. The Doorway was then glued onto a 5 x 5.25-inch red card base.

To give these screen doors some handles I used the tassels from one of the Lantern dies and die cut a negative and positive from a foiled piece of silver cardstock to create the mirrored opposite of the dies and then added a crystal to the handles.

The sentiment was heat embossed in white and comes from Studio Katia.
