Emboss resist butterflies

Good morning and happy Wednesday! 
So, did you have lots of snow last night? We didn't and I am very disappointed! No snow day here!

Anyway, today I am carrying on from yesterday with the spring theme with these beautiful cards, one of which already has a home for Keiran's Grandma's Birthday today!

These are also cards that we made in my Craft Class last Friday, using a technique the ladies hadn't used before.

I have used the stunning Butterfly Basics stamp set and matching Frameits, and the Resist Emboss technique for these cards.

I first stamped the ferns in Versamark onto Naturals White card, then heat embossed using clear Stampin' Emboss. I then gently sponged the card with Sof Sky ink and a sponge, from the edges, up the ferns and outwards, building the colour as I went. I also very gently sponged the Butterfly. I then stamped more ferns in Soft Sky before adding the sentiment in Basci Gray and adding the butterfly, complete with a Basics Rhinestone.

I tried it in a different colourway too...

This one is Pear Pizzazz with a Calypso Coral butterfly. I love both of these, but which one is your favourite??

I will be back with my DT card for CAS-Colours and Sketches tomorrow, and my final class card on Friday. If you would like to join one of my classes, please check out the tab at the top for details. And if you would like to buy any of the products, please click on the links on the right >>>>

  5. If I had to pick, I would say the green, because it looks so real. I have tried this technique with glossy paper, but am going to try it again with the Stampin Up paper. Thank you for sharing. Ps I love the blue one too.
