Stampin' Up! Butterfly Gala - Watercolor Butterfly Cards

Gingham Gala

Hey peaches! I hope you've had a lovely week so far. I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all of the love and kind words you've shared with me. I'm so grateful to have such encouraging people in my life and you should know that you inspire me too! With that being said, I just wanted to let you all know that starting next week I will be doing one post a week instead of the usual two (with the exception of special blog hops), and they will typically be on Fridays. I have chosen to reduce my blogging for a couple reasons. The first and most important is that I would like to spend a little more time with my family and blogging takes up quite a bit of time. Secondly, I am struggling to find time to work in the classroom and volunteer more at my daughter's school, so I,m trying to balance that out more. I hope that you can understand and I will still continue to create whenever I can and share on my social media accounts often (links below). I still LOVE the creative therapy that this craft has offered and I don't plan on cutting that out of my life. Like I said, It's the blogging part that is so time consuming and I need to take a step back from it. Well, with that out of the way, here's my cards for today:



My cards today feature products from the Butterfly Gala Suite. I did want to mention that the Butterfly Duet Punch is currently unavailable, but I found it quite easy to fussy cut the butterflies out. I've added both product links below.

 Additionally, I am pairing these products with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlits Dies, so that adds quite a few more options as you can cut these apart for individual butterflies, layer them, or use the whole piece on your panel. They really are gorgeously versatile.



For both of my cards, I created a watercolor panel using Bermuda Bay and Lemon Lime Twist Ink. Used the Butterfly Dies to cut out quite a few white butterflies to balance out all of the bright happy colors happening on my cards. I stamped my butterflies in the same colors. 



The wood butterfly element in the card above was easy to create as well. I used the free Sale-A-Bration Butterfly Elements and used my Stampin' Blends in coordinating colors to color it. The wood takes the ink very well so you can customize them any way you like.



On my other card you'll notice a strip of striped paper peeking out. That is the amazing Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (DSP)! It's pretty cool. one side has colorful botanical patterns; while the other has bold black and white patterns. I just love it and it's another free Sale-A-Bration item!


Here's a close up of that card:


Well, those are my cards for today! I hope that you have enjoyed them! Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you next post!
