Creating a Stamped Background

Hello Stampers ~ ready to see how the Butterfly Gala was used for Creating a Stamped Background?

Yesterday I made it to Hobby Lobby to look for knobs.  They did not have any big enough so I am on the hunt to see what else I can find.  I did not get any sewing done so Bijou’s cover is still not made.  While I did get some cards made, I did not get any videos completed.   I also got my In Color club items ready for delivery.   I also got my Facebook Live Project completed and it is so cute!  Don’t miss my Facebook Live tonight at 7:30 in the Creations in Paper group.  Today I need to go to the recycling center to get rid of all my cardboard boxes.  I will then make my videos as it is critical I get them done.  I have a few ideas so I just need to get them made.  I am also going to make Bijou’s cover.  This is all based on the premise that nothing comes up to change my plans.  Cross your fingers that nothing pops up!

I got some new supplies in yesterday!  I was so excited as I needed some new items to play with.  Be looking for ideas next week as I focus on one of the designer series paper I got.  Today’s creation was inspired by a card I saw online. They had used a background stamp along with a soft gray ink for their card.  I decided to see if I could recreate it using our supplies.  I used the Butterfly Gala stamp set along with second generation stamping with Smoky Slate ink.  I used a post-it note to mask off the small butterfly, inked up the large butterfly, removed the post-it note, stamped the butterfly on a scrap, then stamped it on my background card stock.  I repeated this procedure until the entire piece of card stock was covered.  Then I went back and added all the bodies.  I added a piece of Fun Foam to the back of the panel rather than dimensionals to give it stability.  The panel was added to my Whisper White card base.  Using Pool Party card stock and Well Written dies I cut out the word Friend.  This was added to the card front.  The “hello” came from Beauty Abounds and was also stamped with Pool Party.  In retrospect I think both of these would have been better if I had used black.  The same butterfly was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on scrap paper.  I colored the butterfly using Highland Heather and Pool Party markers.  The butterfly was punched out with the coordinating punch.  The body was added and then the butterfly was attached to the card front using dimensionals.  Here is my completed idea for Creating a Stamped Background.
