Inspiration is all around us and, in this case, it’s at the tip of our hands. Open your Stampin’ Up! catalog to page 62. Check out the card in the upper left hand corner. My card was inspired by the beautiful card that Stampin’ Up! so kindly shared.
Frame and Masking
The frame was stamped on Whisper White using a Crushed Curry stamp pad. I then used my Stampin’ Up! trimmer to cut the edges. I used my envelope punch board corner round to round my corners.
I used a post-it note to mask off my frame so I could stamp coastal cabana flowers. I really didn’t want the stem to show around the base of the frame. After I stamped the flowers in the frame, I stamped the cut circle portion in Early Espresso.
I stamped my butterfly on Crisp Cantaloupe card stock using Crisp Cantaloupe ink. Then, I cut it out as a whole. I didn’t cut the wing apart. I left a small section in the middle so that it was easier to work with.
To add interest and design my own background, I used a Coastal Cabana ink pad and stamped the small rose from the Papaya Collage stamp set all over my Pool Party base.
