Vintage Best of Butterflies


Welcome to the RemARKable Blog Hop!  I’m stop #3 today, which means you just hopped on over from my friend Linda’s blog Ink Stamp and Scrap.  Linda and I have been friends over 10 years now through Stampin’ Up! and I’ve always thought that her stamping has always been beautiful, don’t you agree?  Well today I have a vintage look for you using a few of my favorite colors from over the past 11 years – More Mustard, Garden Green and Perfect Plum.

Creative Tips –

  • I stamped the romantic looking butterfly in Elegant Eggplant on Very Vanilla so that the design would pop. 
  • I then popped it up using dimensionals onto a flower that I stamped and cut with Daydream Medallions and the matching Framelits. Best of Butterflies 003 CU1
  • I used the Paper Piercing Essentials Pack  to add some piercing in the colors of the More Mustard Square – I’m down to my last few sheets – used my last package tonight for a stamp a stack (sniff…sniff…so tough to see the colors retire!)
  • I distressed the edges of the Garden Green strip with the distressing tool and added a little filler to my Very Vanilla with an Elegant Eggplant Marker and the Color Spritzer Tool.  Best of Butterflies 003 Side
  • I tied a knot in a piece of the Crochet Trim to go along with my vintage look.
  • I made a little tag out of some more of the mustard and added a beautiful saying using the Lacy & Lovely set.  Of course I pinned it to my trim using the Vintage Trinkets – love those!  Best of Butterflies 003 CU2
  • For a finishing touch, I added three of the smallest Pearls to my tag in a triangle – law of three!Best of Butterflies 003 Height I love the finished look.  If you want to see a few more projects that I made this past week with this set, just click on the photos below.

  1. What a beautiful card! I’m going to miss the color spritzer tool!

    • Thank you Susan. I so agree – I remember when they retired it the first time in June 2003. I was devastated, then they came out with this better version, but now it’s gone. Makes me sad! It’s an awesome tool. Have a great Sunday – thanks for stopping by! 🙂

  2. Lovely, vintage card, Ingrid.
