Stamping With Friends June Blog Hop Retiring January-June 2021 Mini Catalog

Welcome to the Stamping With Friends June Blog Hop as we showcase retiring products from the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. You will be visiting with talented Stampin' Up! Demonstrators as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you and spark your creativity. 
I love butterflies. For me, they are a sign of hope and I love creating cards using them to help brighten up someone's day. The Floating & Fluttering Bundle has wonderful images and coordinating dies and I love all the amazing possibilities this bundle has to offer. For today's card design, I paired this retiring bundle with the new Bark 3D Embossing Folder and the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. I love the texture of the embossed background and the pretty scallops on the sentiment label. This soft and pretty card design works well for a variety of occasions and I used just one of the beautiful sentiments from the Happy Thoughts stamp set, which is also retiring, to complete this lovely card.

This clean and simple card features heat embossing to help step up the design. For the sentiment, I heat embossed the image with Gold Embossing Powder for an elegant look. I heat embossed the stamped butterfly collage image with Black Embossing Powder to give the images a glossy look that helps make the colors pop. I colored the butterflies with Highland Heather, Balmy Blue and Flirty Flamingo Stampin' Blends Markers and I colored the leaves with Just Jade Stampin' Blends Markers. I snipped the images apart after die cutting so that each image was separate. The background was embossed with the new Bark 3D Embossing Folder and I love the wonderful texture it gives to the card design. To assemble the card, I added the card front to the card base with Stampin' Dimensionals and added the sentiment label to the center of the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals to provide depth. I arranged the butterflies and leaves around the edges of the sentiment label, attaching the leaves underneath the label and the butterflies to the top of the label. To finish off the design, I added Basic Rhinestones for a touch of bling. This card design would work well for a birthday card or even a Sympathy card. By changing the colors, you can create a card with a whole new look and feel. I love how these products combine together to help provide so many wonderful options.
