Butterfly scene cards (by Anne)

Good morning. For my texture project today I have made 2 variations of a butterfly scene card.

I have used ink spritzing and stamping with texture stamps to create interesting backgrounds. I have used the large gem slice stamp and heat embossing with sparkling pink powder to add a colourful textured foreground for my scene. The butterflies were also stamped and embossed, then coloured and cut out.

Both scenes were created in the same way but I took one of them a step further by mounting on a larger card with a textured embossing powder border (using heat resistant tape to adhere the powder before heating), die cut foliage and floral gems, finishing with another of the lovely stamped butterflies. Of course I just had to add PVA pearls and glitter in there too.

We have all had so much fun creating with this month’s theme of texture.

  • Just Butterflies, Nature Fragments, Abstract Fragments and Tall Trees stamp sets
  • 12 X 15cm and 15 X 17cm white card blanks
  • 11 X 14cm watercolour card
  • Ink spritzers (lime green with mica and bright pink)
  • Watercolour pens for colouring and background stamping (green, teal, blue, pink and purple)
  • Glitter pens (blue and green)
  • Heat embossing powders (cerise with glitter, and textured mix of fine and chunky pink, black and white)
  • Inkpad for stamping trees (dark green)
  • Glitter glue (aqua holographic)
  • Alcohol markers for edging card and colouring die cuts (green and pink)
  • Floral shaped faux gems (pink and blue)
  • PVA pearls (purple)
  • Heat resistant double sided tape (Wonder Tape - for heat embossed border)
  • Foliage Dies


  1. Wow, such beautiful cards with an organic feel about it, like them and reminds me of using those great structure stamps again! xx Miranda

  2. Fabulous both the cards, and love expecially the second one with all the pretty details added

  3. Two fabulous cards Anne and the heat embossed gem slice looks great in the foreground and the two pretty scenes go with it beautifully, and I love the added larger butterfly and die cut foliage which you have added to one of them too. x

  4. Your cards are stunning Anne, wonderful colours and images, some lovely texture too, Kate x
