Hi there, It’s Maureen here with a guest post that I made just for you! With Spring right around the corner, I’m inspired to make cards featuring flowers and butterflies, birds and nature. I just can’t wait to see buds on the trees and hear birds singing outside my window. Maybe some of you have already seen a touch of Spring depending on where you live.
RainbowButterflies I have been dreaming up a rainbow butterfly card in my head for a while. I reached for my beloved Butterfly Notes stamp set and got busy.

I used nearly every ink color in the Catherine Pooler line. I arranged the ink in rainbow order on my work surface and start stamping mid-rainbow and in the center of my 4 x 5 1/4” white panel.

Each butterfly was first stamp in a lighter shade and then rolled in a darker shade (or even a different, but darker color). This is the Rock & Roll technique.

RainbowButterfliesCU Once all of the larger butterflies were stamped, I went in and added some smaller butterflies and polka dots to fill in the empty space. To get even more variation in color, I stamped off some of the dots.

I really wanted those butterflies to be the focus of my card, so I added just a simple sentiment. I didn’t want my sentiment to look as if it were floating, so I grounded it with three score line. I then added my sentiment which was stamped and heat embossed in white on black card stock, then added it to the stamped panel with foam adhesive. The card was complete by placing it on a white card base.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my project!
