Layered Butterfly

Hello, everyone! Today I'm sharing a butterfly card! I was inspired by Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge, the theme of which is G for Glossy Accents, paired with the optional colour Slate Blue. I used both!  I die-cut the butterfly three times and layered for a 3-D effect.


The bottom layer is die-cut from vellum. The other two layers are heat embossed with three different silver embossing powders.  I sprinkled on the embossing powders radiating outwards from the center. It's quite sparkly in person!  The sentiment is heat-embossed as well. 


Here are some photos showing the layering.  Can you see the Glossy Accents?  I added it randomly in droplets around the card. All products used are listed below.


  • Clear stamps:  Butterfly (Clearly Besotted Flight of Fancy) sentiment (Clearly Besotted Framed Sentiments)
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Embossing powders:  The Artful Stamper Aegean Silver, Wow Metallic Silver Sparkle, Wow Iced Silver
  • Dies;  Gina Marie Designs Scalloped Square Frame, Clearly Besotted Flight of Fancy
  • Other:  Glossy Accents, Silver enamel dots from my stash

I was inspired by the sketch at Great Impressions:

Cute Unicorn

Hello, everyone!  I've been seeing so many sweet unicorns in the crafting world lately that I just had to colour this little cutie!  I was inspired by Pink and Main's Love challenge.  I used a lot of Pink and Main products, listed below.  I stamped the images on Strathmore Bristol and then heat-embossed in clear so I could water-colour them.  I haven't done that in a while.  Sorry for the quick post, still not feeling the best. Hope to get around to visit your blogs soon!


  • Clear stamps:  Pink and Main Magical Unicorns, sentiment from Pink and Main Hummingbirds
  • Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark, Twisted Citron Distress Ink
  • Embossing Powder:  Zing Clear
  • Dies: Pink and Main Magical Unicorns Dies, Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud Borders
  • Colouring medium:  Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers (026 Light Pink, 036 Light Blue, 045 Pale Green, 051 Lemon Yellow, 081 Light Violet, 097 Pale Gray)
  • Stencil:  Simon Says Stamp Falling Hearts


I would like to support these fun challenges:

Dies R Us Think Spring 2/3
The Artistic Stamper Love Hearts 3/3
