New Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and Framelits by Stampin’ Up!

Oh, so happy I finally get to play with some new products: Butterfly Basics stamp set and coordinating thinlits.The cards I’ve made today are bit edgy because I really like a slightly distressed look. Backgrounds for all cards are sponged using different shades of green. For some of those cards, I’ve used colour resist technique. I’ve stamped leaves with Versamark and then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder.

With second card I also stamped leaves with Versamark but this time I didn’t heat-emboss it. As you can see Versamark resist colour even if it’s not embossed, but the effect is more gentle. The only layer in this card is a butterfly 🙂

Some leaves have been also stamped off first to get a lighter shade. Filigree honeycomb-kind-of image and little circle are stamped in Hello Honey.

To add some interest to the cards I’ve stamped some “splatters” from Gorgeous Grunge (Hello Honey again)

I just love this sentiment! So versatile. You can use it for thank you cards, birthdays, scrapbook pages, decorations, frames, shadowboxes, etc

For a final touch, I’ve added some beautiful sequins from In Color Sequin Assortment. Easy yet effective 🙂

 Last two cards are mounted on black base. I just couldn’t decide which one I like the most: white, black or none 🙂 And which one is your favourite?

I hope you like my today’s cards. I surely had lots of fun making them.

Thank you for stopping by, happy crafting
