Sponged and Embossed Vellum Butterfly

Its finally spring here in southern Wisconsin, no butterflies yet, but my hostas and daffodils are several inches tall already. Everything is just green right now, but in anticipation of some colorful flowers to come I made this butterfly card.

Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Painted Petals and Papillon Potpourri Stamp Sets

It was hard to know what colors to use on this butterfly, there is so much variety in nature. I settled on something that kind of matched the flowers. 

s Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set: heat embossed in white and sponged on the back

Here's how I did the butterfly: The butterfly is stamped on Vellum - which is a translucent parchment paper. I stamped the butterfly in White Craft Ink and then heat embossed it with White Embossing powder.  To get the color I sponged Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay on the back side. Adding the color on the back gives greater contrast for the detail on the front. I really love how this turned out.

Well, if you're a fan of Stampin'UP! products you're probably aware that its catalog transition time. Both the Annual Catalog and the Occasions catalog will expire the end of May. We know there's going to be some amazing, wonderful new stuff coming - but we also want to make sure we have everything from the retiring catalog before its gone for good.  Have you see the catalogs?

Stamps are guaranteed to be available through May 26th.
Everything else is available only while supplies last

In my experience I suggest checking the list sooner rather than later
and if there's something there you want, I'd get it now before its gone
and the good news is - more than half the stuff is also on sale
anywhere from 15% up to 50%
