Hello, and welcome to the 4th, and final, week of the Stampin’ Up! Butterfly Gala Showcase. In part 3 we looked at 3D projects (you can find the blog here) and this week I will be CASEing the catalogue and creating three cards, all of which have a wonderful, fresh, spring-like feel.
But first, lets have a quick look at some of the projects we have created using the Butterfly Gala stamp set and Gingham Gala suite so far…
As you can see, this is a really versatile Stamp Set and Suite which allows you to create so many different projects. It lends itself to simple or complex; monochrome or colourful; and has a lovely selection of sentiments suitable for a range of occasions.
Thank You So Very Much
The first project that I selected to CASE from the catalogue was the Lemon Lime Twist card. I cut a piece of Gingham Gala DSP and used a Grapefruit Grove Stampin’ Marker to add extra lines to the pattern. The butterflies were stamped initially in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Whisper White cardstock and then filled in using Highland Heather ink. They were cut out using the Butterfly Duet punch but would not be too difficult to fussy-cut if you don’t have the punch. A piece of Vellum cardstock has been cut out using the Starburst punch and a length of Whisper White Flax Ribbon layered on top. I have then cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock and scribbled with a Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Marker to create a background for the sentiment which was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink once the marker had dried. Once everything was adhered to the card base, I added Grapefruit Grove Gingham Gala sequins.
A Little Note
The second project that I CASEd was the ‘A Little Note’ card. The card base is Whisper White cardstock and then a piece of each of the five colours of Gingham Gala DSP was adhered to this. The sentiment is stamped in Grapefruit Grove ink onto Whisper White cardstock and the banner shaped was created by simply snipping with scissors. I stamped the small butterfly in Daffodil Delight onto coordinating cardstock and added the abdomen in Memento Tuxedo Black and adhered to the sentiment piece. If you look carefully you can see that the antenna are stamped onto the DSP too! A length of Whisper White Baker’s Twine was wrapped a few times around my fingers and adhered to the card with the sentiment piece raised above it using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is added with three Gingham Gala sequins in Daffodil Delight, Grapefruit Grove and Lemon Lime Twist.
The final project was the ‘Welcome’ card which uses Balmy Blue as a base. A number of small butterflies have been cut out of Gingham Gala DSP using the Butterfly Duet punch and adhered to another piece of Balmy Blue cardstock and the a square cut out using Stitched Shapes Framelits. I stamped one of the large butterflies onto Daffodil Delight cardstock in coordinating ink and cut out using the Butterfly Duet punch. This was adhered to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals. The final touch is provided by cutting ‘welcome’ from the Well Written Framelits dies in Whisper White cardstock and adhering to the butterfly. This is a great little card to welcome someone to the family, the company, the street, or even the world!
I hope you have enjoyed part 4 of the Butterfly Gala Showcase. You should now have plenty of ideas to help to get the best out of this great Stamp Set and Suite.
