Product Spotlight: Butterfly Brilliance Collection from Stampin' Up!
Hello, hello, hello!! I'm so excited to be sharing a much closer look at the brand new product release for March, 2021 called the Butterfly Brilliance Collection from Stampin' Up! These products are gorgeous and so versatile!! You can watch the VIDEO or keep reading for a closer look at some of the cards I made using these fun, new products...
The Butterfly Brilliance Collection is a group of products that includes a large, multiple butterfly image stamp that is all one piece, a die set that includes one large die to cut out each of the individual butterflies in the stamp set, plus another set of dies that cuts detailed butterflies to use alone or layered on top of the outlines. The collection also includes a 48-sheet pack of 6x6 designer series paper (DSP) in butterfly and neutral patterns, plus a specialty paper in a blonde wood tone. You can get a closer look at everything HERE. These products allow for some incredibly fun stamping techniques and the combinations of product create endless options in card-making!
I have spent the last few weeks playing with these products and have had so much fun!! One of the patterns of DSP in the 6x6 package features large butterflies that coordinate with that large outline die so you can literally cut the butterflies, already colored, out of the paper itself and use them on your projects. I did this for the cards above. I cut the butterflies out of the DSP, paired them with card stock colors that coordinated with the colors in the DSP and paired them with sentiment stamps from the Vine Design stamp set.
After I had some fun making those cards, it got me thinking about some of the fun ways to use the stamped image. I took a sheet of our watercolor paper, the broad brush from our water painter set, and a glass of water and I wet the paper with the brush. I then took a few of our reinkers and added a few drops of basic gray, pool party and so saffron to a plate and added water to each of the drops. I then touched the color to the wet paper one color at a time to create a background piece. Once it dried thoroughly, I layed the watercolored paper into my Stamparatus tool, inked up the big butterfly collection stamp with Memento Black ink and stamped it down on top of the watercolor paper to create those pretty, watercolored butterflies. I then die cut them out, using the outline die, and make the cards you see here... (you can see my technique to create the paper, in the video)
For these cards I used the Pinewood Plank embossing folder to give some texture to the layer panel of card stock and I used the natural linen thread as the ribbon embellishment. I love how these cards came out and can't wait to try this technique again, using different colors and a colored ink for the butterflies, instead of black. I also can't wait to make some cards using the butterfly detail dies!! So many options and fun ways to mix and match the products in this collection. This is an incredible value at $71USD.
This is a photo of the paper I made and shared on the video. I stamped the butterfly image and then lined up the dies to show you how the butterflies were going to look after I cut them out. I'll be making more cards with these beauties, for sure!!
