Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge #10 – Butterfly Birthday

Anna’ Stampin’ Cave – Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge #10 – Butterfly Birthday

SSSC Header

Thank you for joining us for another Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge!  We’re a so excited to be sharing this hop with you. The products used are all available in the current Annual, or seasonal, Stampin’ Up!®  Catalogues*. Simply use the buttons at the bottom of the post to keep hopping!

And today’s sketch was designed by lovely Kathleen from Lilypopcrafts.


This is such a great sketch, with lots of layers, which I truly love. But I challenged myself to create CAS (clean and simple) card. And I think I did well 🙂

The base of my card is top folded A6 Mint Macaron, with layers of Whisper White and Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP which is retiring, but you can still get hold of it at fraction of price here.

I decided to use beautiful (and retiring) stamp set Floral Wings. I stamped the butterfly in Mint Macaron, roses in Watermelon Wonder and leaves in Cucumber Crush. Next, I die cut the butterfly using Bold Butterflies Framelits and another one in vellum using a middle of Butterflies Thinlits and layered them together. I cut 1/4 of a Tea Lace Paper Doily and attached it underneath my butterfly and adhere it to the card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment comes from Number Of Years. I stamped it in Basic Black Archival Ink on a strip of Whisper White and punched both ends into banners using Banner Punch (also retiring).  I took Gold Metallic thread, created some messy loops and add it underneath the banner. Few gold sequins finished off the card.

As sad as it is to see these products go, there’s still time for you to get them before they’re gone. Retiring products will only be available until 31 May, or while supplies last. So if there’s something from retiring products on your wishlist, don’t wait until last day – once they’re gone, they’re gone. And they are selling fast! Check the retiring products HERE

    Love how you used vellum to soften the colors of the butterfly. I like this set but thought the butterfly was a bit loud. The vellum is perfect.
