Beauty Abounds

March 1, 2019

Lori Gray posted a card onto the Demonstrator only Facebook page to which I susbscribe and I thought it was absolutely gorgeous, so I had to make one of my own.  Lori’s blog is pretty new but I am sure you will find some great ideas there.  Anyway, here is my version of Lori’s card.  I stamped the large flowery image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set across the middle of Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the large bokeh image from the same stamp set over the top using Daffodil Delight ink.  I attached the stamped card to Daffodil Delight card and then scored and folded Smoky Slate card.  I used the smallest stitched circle from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to cut Whisper White card.  The Whisper White circle is attached to a Daffodil Delight scalloped circle cut using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies before attaching to the card front.  I stamped the butterflies from the Butterfly Gala stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I inked the fill images using the Pumpkin Pie/Daffodil Delight of my Spectrum Pad.  (Please visit Patty Bennett’s blog to see how to ink your Spectrum Pad.)  The butterflies were punched out using the Butterfly Duet Punch.   I curled the butterfly wings on the larger butterfly using my bone folder and attached it to the centre of the Whisper White circle using a glue dot in the centre of the body and mini dimensionals under each wing.  Once attached I stamped the antennae image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the flowering image down the left hand side of Whisper White card.  I gave the wings of the small butterfly some dimension using the bone folder and attached the butterfly using a glue dot in the centre of the body.

I love this card, it is just so pretty and so quick and easy to create.   It got me thinking about Simple Stamping and I just had to create a note card to match.  This time I stamped the large flowery image from the Beauty Abounds stamp set onto the left hand side of the front of a Whisper White note card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I stamped the large bokeh image from the same stamp set over the top using Daffodil Delight ink.  I stamped the butterfly from the Beauty Abounds stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped the small bokeh image over the top using Daffodil Delight ink.  To finish off I stamped the greeting from the Beauty Abounds stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Of course I had to decorate the envelope as well.

Thank you Lori for the inspiration.

Bye for now,

Kris
