Butterfly Frame

Hello everyone.

I am proud to share with you the newest release from Crafter’s Companion – Stamp It Stamps – that you may have seen at CHA last week. These are about the coolest vintagey looking stamps there are and here is the Butterfly Frame on my card.

Pardon the poor photo quality of this card – I didn’t have my lightbox with me when I had to take a photo 1 day before leaving for CHA last week.

Here is how I did the card:

I stamped the image onto kraft cardstock and embossed it with black embossing powder so it would still remain dark after I finish inking it.

This is the part I had the most fun with – I sprayed the image with white color mist and then dribbled brown color mist on top to age it further. The mists were from October Afternoon. The edges were trimmed with my deckling scissors and inked with brown chalk ink. I embellished the focal image further with some Stampendous mica flakes (crushed so it wouldn’t be so heavy). I love how those flakes easily attached with just adhesive and I get instant texture – I’m all for anything easy to use.

The rest of the card was left simple so that the focus would remain on the main image and sentiment – which happens to be from the Fairyopolis winter set.

Check out more card inspiration using this Stamp It collection from my Crafter’s Companion team mates.

Have a fun and inky day!
