Stencilled Butterfly Accents and Washi Tape Forals … quick & easy!

Hello everyone! Beautiful cards that are quick and easy? Yes, please! It just doesn't get any better than combining Pinkfresh Studio's Small Butterflies and Anenome Magic! Stencilling and washi tape take card making to the next level if you want to make cards that take a fraction of the time to make compared to their 'stamp and colour' counterparts. I made all five cards, start to finish, in just under 3 hours! Now divide that by five and it was just over half an hour per card! Now how about that! AND the washi tape roll goes on forever! I can't even imagine how many images could be die cut! These cards are a great time saver, are suitable for many occasions and are good value for your money! The perfect combo!

The repeating images on the Anenome Magic Washi Tape consist of one large floral and a grouping of five smaller ones. I rolled the tape out on Neenah Classic Crest card stock and used the coordinating die to cut them. For the five cards, I used 3 large florals and 2 groupings of the smaller ones. The die was used to cut sheet foam and the florals were stacked. The butterflies were stamped in a stamping platform with Simon Says Stamp's Intense Black ink. The stamp was left in place so the butterflies could be embossed after the stencilling. The butterflies were stencilled and die cut. with Simon Says Stamp's Pawsitively Saturated Inks. One set was coloured with Trio 1 and the other with Trio 3. After the ink was dry, they were embossed in gold All the butterflies were hand shaped and adhered with adhesive just along the body for added dimension and foam squares placed under the wings. All the cards were embellished with gold confetti finished off with Nuvo Crystal Drops Morning Dew. The spots on the butterflies were highlighted with black Nuvo Drops and White Blizzard was used on the berries found on the large floral image die cuts.

For this slimline, a floral back ground was created by piecing different foam backed die cuts on a black card stock panel. The outer frame from Slim Stitched Scallop Rectangle was adhered to the panel and mounted on a black card base measuring 8 3/4" 3 3/4". The sentiment, stacked on foam, was cut from matte gold and black card stock using Simon Says Stamp's Big Script Hugs.


The background for this card was created with two banners from the Slim Ornate Banner die set. The smaller one run through the die cutter again with Stitched Plaid to add some textural detail. The banner panel was mounted on a card base measuring 8 3/4" by 3 3/4". The sentiment, stacked on foam, was cut from matte gold and black card stock using Simon Says Stamp's Happy Birthday Brush Script.


The frames from Slim Stitched Scallop Rectangle were adhered to the panel and mounted on a black card base measuring 8 3/4" 3 3/4". The inside scalloped frame was stacked with two additional die cuts to add some dimension and finished off with a big, foam stacked sentiment by by Simon Says Stamp, Let's Connect.


The backgrounds for the two A2 sized cards were completed with Fancy Oval Frame on the card on the left (just the frame was stacked on a foam die cut) and Braided Oval on the right. The card bases were matted with black card stock measuring 4 1/8" by 5 3/8". The floral images for the card on the left were the only ones not foam mounted. Simon Says Stamp's Script Hello was cut from matte gold card stock and stacked on a foam die cut. The sentiment for the other card is from the Anemone Magic stamp set and was stamped with Simon's Black Intense ink.
