Magnolia Butterfly (by Julie )

Hello, today I have two cards featured around the lovely Magnolia from Happy Flower's Day

My first card is a simple stamp and colour. I started by stamping the Magnolia to the bottom left of the card along with the Butterfly sentiment next to it. I coloured the Magnolia with polychromus pencils and the background with Distress inks. The black splats are from a black ink spray bottle that I carefully dripped over rather than spraying as I wanted a more controlled look. The butterfly was stamped onto spare card-stock, coloured with Distress inks before being cut out and mounted onto the design with 3d foam pads.

For my second card I started by stamping the heart from Artist Trading Heart onto the card blank and I also made a mask by stamping onto a piece of copier paper. Carefully cut out the heart from the copier paper and place the negative part onto your card design and stamp the Magnolia into the blank heart so that it appears in the heart. Swap your mask for the positive bit so your magnolia heart is now covered, before stamping the geometric heart from Geometric Trading Heart, to the right of your design. Remove your mask and you should have two hearts.  Stamp the sentiment, colour the stamped images with polychromus pencils and the background with Distress ink. The splodges are from a cerise pink, spray ink bottle which have been dripped over the background rather than sprayed.

Thanks for stopping by and please call back soon for more Design Team inspiration.

  1. Perfect. Beautiful cards.

  2. Two gorgeous cards Julie with the lovely geometric heart paired with the magnolia image in the other and the bit of spattering and super inking in the background, and the other with a wonderful butterfly to go with it. Both have a soft and pretty look and the magnolia flowers and butterfly are beautifully coloured. x
