Bold and Beautiful Butterfly with Stampin’ Blends

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Bold and Beautiful Butterfly with Stampin’ Blends

Sparkle sparkle, flutter flutter!

I had a bit of a session crafting with Stampin’ Blends recently (can you tell….?) and I wanted to see what they’d look like behind our amazing Bold Buttefly and Beautiful Butterflies framelits.

I think pretty special….

I had to work in a rhythm here to get the cut out pieces in the right order, because it does require both sets…. so bear with me.

Bold Butterfly Framelit – Shimmery White Cardstock

this gave me a matching pair.

Bold Butterfly Thinlits Black Cardstock

Beautiful Butterflies Framelit – Shimmery White

Again, that gave me another matching pair.

Once I had those 4 pieces, I just had fun!

First the black pieces were all covered in Wink of Stella to get the gorgeous shimmery effect, as was the Hope from the Sunshine Wishes thinlits set.

I set them off to dry, I’d really covered them over, and while doing that started to play with my blends.

My smaller butterfly is Rich Razzleberry dark on the outer edges and blends with the light into Pink Pirouette dark then finishes with Light right in the center.

The larger starts with Bermuda Bay on the outside and finished with Pool Party on the centre.

I didn’t worry overly much about blending the 2 distinct colours together, it happened fairly naturally, but equally, the black shapes of the Butterflies wings covered the joins.

I really love the finish of these and will definitely have a go again!
