  1. Green butterfly tag card by Caroline Shinnie

    Posted on

    Stamps Used
    Ink Pads used
    To make the background, emboss the Twisted Check Mask through your die cutting machine, using pale green card. Distress the edges with scissors, and then use Mowed Lawn and Black Soot Distress ink to bring out the Embossing. Stamp the flower head (from the Dandelion Dreams set) randomly over the embossed card using Brilliance Pearlescent Thyme . Curl all four corners in slightly, and stick it to a blank 6x6 Kraft card. 
    For the toppers, decorate 3 different sized white tags with flower stamps using Starlite Silver and Pearlescent Thyme for the leaves. Add glam pink stickles to the flower heads. To make the butterfly, stamp a piece of card using the Medieval Background in Starlite Silver. Then stamp the butterfly outline from the Flutterby set with Black Versafine and cut it out. Make a matching paper bead for the butterfly body from a strip of the card, stamped in the Medieval Background. Distress the edges of the Butterfly with Mowed Lawn distress ink and embellish with a few jewels. Finally attach to the card and add ribbon.

     Products used


    A6 Flutterby stamp set


    Brilliance inkpad - Pearlescent Lavender


    Liquid Pearls - White Opal


    MDF Flutterby Shapes


    Acrylic paint, beads, buttons and thread

    How to make

    Firstly paint one large butterfly, two small butterflies and one of the flower shapes from the MDF kit in white acrylic paint.  When dry stamp the butterflies on both sides with the matching stamps from the Flutterby stamp set with the Pearlescent Lavender inkpad. Stamp the small flower using either of the flower shapes that fit.  Leave to dry or heat set if you're impatient, then add liquid pearls to the centres of the flowers.  Once dry string the shapes together with thread or Bakers twine adding buttons and little bows.  Add some beads to the strings on the bottom butterfly.  Beautiful and very easy!
