Stamp-Along Card Tutorial - Beautiful Butterflies

Stamp-Along Card Tutorial - Beautiful Butterflies

Hello Crafters,

Do you want to stamp along with Chloe? Of course you do! And that is why we're back with a brand-new Stamp-Along, this time using the glorious new Beautiful Butterflies collection. In this pretty creation, that's been designed for a birthday but could be equally as fabulous with a slight tweak for many other celebrations, you will be stamping, die-cutting, heat-embossing, colouring, and glittering to your heart's content

You can join Chloe on Wednesday, 8th March at 2pm where she will guide you every step of the way!

Here's a close-up image of the main floral butterfly topper - it's breath-takingly beautiful, isn't it?!

There are lots of techniques used here, so it's a great one to learn new skills and give you ideas for future projects! 
During the Stamp-Along, you'll be able to craft along with Chloe while watching the video; it'll be like having a live workshop in the comfort of your own home! You will, quite literally, be stamping along with Chloe! You will be able to ask questions and comment as you're watching, and as Chloe will be monitoring the comments and questions coming through, she'll be able to answer there and then - how great is that? 
We realise that not everyone can join in live as it happens, so don't worry if you're one of these as we'll be posting the video on our Facebook Page and Youtube channel, so that you can catch up and revisit any time you want. 
Chloe has also created full step-by-step instructions and material listing for you to follow along, but to make it even easier for you, we've also created a downloadable, printable version that you'll be able to go back to time and time again. This digital PDF even has all the products linked to our website, so if there's anything you need to buy ahead of the live, you can simply click on the product and it will take you through to the relevant product page on our website. Please note, items that aren't available on our website will have no links. You can also substitute certain items if you don't have them in your craft stash. If you would like to make a card for an occasion other than for a birthday, then you can also substitute the central sentiment.  



To help save a bit of time, there's also a handy list of elements at the bottom of this page that you need to prep prior to the live video. Doing this will mean that we can all finish the project at the same time!

Materials:

Instructions:

Trim a sheet of Rose Quartz mirror card to 7¾”-square, then affix to the base card. Trim Crystal White pearl card to 7⅝”-square, edge using a chisel-tip glue pen, cover with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter, and affix to the base card. Trim Rose Quartz matt mirror card to 7½”-square and affix to the base card using foam pads. Trim a sheet of flower-patterned paper to 7¼”-square, edge using a chisel-tip glue pen, cover with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter, then affix to the base card. Trim Crystal White pearl card to 6¾”-square, then affix to the base card on an angle, as shown.

2 Trim a sheet of Rose Quartz pearl card to 6½”-square, dust with an anti-static bag, and stamp the flower border image across the bottom using a clear embossing inkpad. Cover with WOW! Opaque Bright White Superfine embossing powder and heat set.

3 Colour in the flower heads on the stamped image using pink alcohol markers, then infill the leaves using dries-clear PVA glue and cover with Lime Zing Sparkelicious glitter. Edge the panel using a chisel-tip glue pen and cover with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Affix to the base card using foam pads. Embellish the centres of the flowers using self-adhesive sparkles and add sparkling butterflies to the background.

4 Stamp two Grande Floral Butterfly images onto Rose Quartz pearl card using a clear embossing inkpad, cover with Opaque Bright White Superfine embossing powder and heat set. Cut out the butterflies with the coordinating dies. Infill the background using dries-clear PVA glue and cover with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Allow to dry then adhere the butterflies together using glue gel.

5 Stamp two Grande Floral Butterflies onto white vellum using a clear embossing inkpad, cover with Opaque Bright White Superfine embossing powder and heat set. Cut out the flowers and leaves from one butterfly and just the flowers from the other. Flip over and, working on the back, colour the leaves in green and the centres of the flowers in pink. Shape the flowers by folding down the centre of the petals. Add pink self-adhesive sparkles to the centres of the flowers and layer up onto the butterfly using Pinflair glue gel. Adhere the butterfly to the base card using a double layer of foam pads.

6 Stamp four medium and four small Country Flower images onto Rose Quartz pearl paper using a clear embossing inkpad. Cover with Opaque Bright White Superfine embossing powder and heat set. Cut out the flowers using the coordinating dies. Infill the petals with dries-clear PVA glue and cover with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Allow the glue to dry, then shape the petals, pinching down the centre between your finger and thumb.

7 Stamp two medium and two small Country Flower images onto white vellum using a clear embossing inkpad. Cover with Opaque Bright White Superfine embossing powder, then heat to set. Flip the flowers over so you are working on the back and colour the centres of the petals using a pink pencil. Die-cut the flowers, then shape by pinching the petals between your finger and thumb. Layer two paper and one vellum flowers together. Add self-adhesive sparkles to the centre and affix to base card, as shown.

8 Die-cut the Floral Diamond from Crystal White pearl card and the inner plain diamond from Rose Quartz pearl card. Edge the floral diamond panel using a chisel-tip glue pen and cover with Crystallina Sparkelicious glitter. Layer the two diamonds together and affix to the base card using foam pads.

9 Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment onto Crystal White card using a clear embossing inkpad, cover with Pretty in Pink WOW! embossing glitter and heat set. Cut out the sentiment with the coordinating die and affix to base card using foam pads. Complete card by adding jewels to the corners, as shown.

     

    If you want to get ahead, here's what you can have prepped ready before the Stamp-Along:

    • Any die-cutting.
    • Cut the following matts and layers to size:
            Rose Quartz mirror card: 7¾x7¾”
            Rose Quartz matt mirror card: 7½x7½”
            Rose Quartz pearl card: 6½x6½”
            Rose Quartz pearl card: 7⅝x7⅝”
            Patterned paper: 2¼x6¼”
    • If you'd like to get a little further ahead, you could stamp and emboss the elements ahead of time too.
