Butterfly Box…..


Good morning all, how are we all today?

Well I know everyone has been playing with Christmas lately but I have one sample to show you that is not Christmas……

As you know by now I love the Hobby Art Butterflies stamp set and the other week I thought that I would have a play around with a pop up box card as everyone seemed to be doing them.

Butterflies  Script & Grasses Set

So this is what I came up with……

I really enjoyed making this box using this set it was perfect for it. I also used the Script and Grasses stamp set which worked really well with the butterflies……

I stamped the images with Onyx Black Versafine ink and then embossed them with Wow clear sparkle powder. You can see the sparkle on the message…..

I used a wash of Weathered Wood Distress ink to add some colour to the butterflies and used a blending tool to soften the edges of the box……

Well I hope that you have enjoyed my inspiration, next time will be Christmas projects to show you…..

These are just some of the samples that I made using the Gorgeous Butterflies stamp designed by Sharon Bennett……. I love butterflies and here you can see that you can achieve sooo many look using the same stamps and altering the colours and techniques…..


This first one I made as an open picture frame using Distress Inks, I also used the Hobby Art  Silhouette Grasses Stamp……


The second project was a wall hanging and I kept it in sepia tones and again used the Silhouette Grasses Stamp. I also stamped and embossed some butterflies on vellum and 3d’d them…..

A totally different look for the next one…..I stamped with a clear pad and white embossed the images and then used it as a resist and worked my inks over the top.

I also stamped and embossed on the background paper……
