It's Saturday and that means it's time for a new theme at Allsorts challenge. This time our challenge runs for 2 weeks over the Easter holiday. This gives everyone a little extra time to join us! We have a new sponsor this time - The Paper Box - giving away a gift certificate to their shop. Hope you can join us!
We have fun theme for you, chosen by Brenda - Bugs, Butterflies and Blossoms. Choose one, two or combine all three.
All stamps I used on this card are from the Stampin Up set "Butterfly Basics". It's my newest stamp set from Stampin Up, but I placed my last order with them a few years ago so it is now retired as well, but like with most retired Stampin Up products it can be found on ebay.
I created a "smooched" background by using Distress Oxide inks Wilted Violet, Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage. Next I stamped the flower and butterflies with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. The grid lines on my Stamp Platform came in handy to line up the butterflies almost perfectly. The sentiment was stamped with Bundled Sage ink 3 times across the card and I stamped the lace-y butterfly from this set with Tumbled Glass ink. To add a little more interest I used the "honeycomb" stamp (which is also from the set) randomly on the background with Wilted Violet ink. Distressed the edges and framed with colored card stock, then mounted onto a white card base.
Stampin Up Butterfly Basics - Retired but should be available on Ebay or Etsy
