Thinking of You… All of You.

How are you all doing with things going on on the other side of the world? Hope this card will make you feel better. Remember, I am thinking of you always…

Hello friends, Marj here of MarjBanzalesDesigns. I think this project really resonates on what is going on right now.

For my project today, I used the Build a Butterfly Stamp Set. I am so in love with this stamp set. So easy to make a project using this one and can make a bunch. I stamped a few butterflies and will color them using different mediums later on.

For this project, I wanted to emboss the butterfly. So I stamped it onto white thick cardstock using Color Hive Clear Water Based Ink Pad. Next, added the Crystal Clear Embossing Powder and then set it with my heat gun. I love how the embossing powder looks right after it melted. There’s a shine that pops in and out.

Next, I used the Color Hive Hyde Park Ink Pad as Watercolor to color the stamped image. This Ink Pad is really cool! Therefore, you don’t really need to dip it too much unless you want a darker shade for your project. In addition, it is So light and easy to manage. Once done, I set it aside to dry then added a few double sided tape at the back. To highlight my image, I made a background by die cutting a designer paper. Using a CLoud Stencil from my stash Distress Oxide Fossilized Amber.

To further illustrate, I used the A2 Top Fold Card Base then adhered the designer paper on top. After that, I added the cloud background then the frame. I remove the backing of the double-sided tape and added the image in the front. Finally, once everything is set, I stamped the sentiment directly to the card using the Color Hive Eclipse Black. To finish it off, added some rhinestones to the butterfly and to the sentiment for added shine.
