Butterfly Effect Stamp | Pixie Powders

Hello and Happy Saturday! Ali is here on the blog today with a stunning card created with the grunge circles, big butterfly stamp and sentiments from our BUTTERFLY EFFECT set with pixie powders…

I used the gorgeous new Butterfly Effect stamp set on this 10″ x 7″ card along with plenty of heat embossing and the bling is provided by Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders.

Cut a piece of 300gsm white card 9″ x 6″, spritz a little water on the back to help keep it flat and then spritz the front on the card.

Tap Midnight Blue, Peacock Green and Golden Mint Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders on the card in different sections. Spritz more water to activate the powder. Use a paper towel to soak up the water run off and dry your card with a heat tool (or if you are patient, leave to dry overnight).

Wipe over your dry card with an anti static pad then stamp the grunge circle stamp diagonally across your card with versamark ink and heat emboss with white detail embossing powder.

Stamp the circles over the two remaining corners and white heat emboss as before.

Stamp the small butterfly using black versafine ink up the sides of the card and heat emboss with black detail embossing powder.

Change the direction as you stamp so that the butterflies look like they are following a waggly trail.

Stamp the large butterfly 3 times onto white card using black Versafine ink then heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Cut out the butterflies leaving a thin white outline around them. If you cut into the embossed area it may flake off.

Stamp the sentiments onto white card with black versafine ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder as before.

Cut out your sentiments and matt them onto black card leaving about 1/8″ border.

Use a blending tool and black soot  distress ink around the edges of your card to add a vignette.

Matt this onto white card leaving approx 1/16″ border, then onto a black card matt with approx 3/16″ border. Attach to your white 10″ x 7″ white card blank using pva glue or double sided tape.

Position your butterflies and text on your card without sticking them down and move them about until you are happy with the layout.

I started with 3 butterflies but decided 2 looked better.

Take a photo of your layout.

Tip a little of the Green Mint and Peacock Green Pixie Powders onto separate areas of your craft mat and add a drop of water to each. Paint your butterflies and use your heat gun on the back to dry them.

Shape the wings of the butterflies using your fingers to make them lift.

Checking your layout you decided on earlier, fix your sentiments using 3d foam tape. Apply pva glue to the body of your butterflies and a big blob of 3d glue gel to the inner parts of the wings, then fix the butterflies to your card.

Leave the glue gel to set for about 20 minutes.

Colour the circles on the sentiments with your left over pixie powder paint and add glossy accents.

Your finished card will look a bit like mine 😎

    Butterfly Canvas | Rainbow Distress Inks

    Hi there! We are back with more fabulous new stamps inspiration today! Jane has made an incredible butterfly canvas with the gorgeous butterflies, grunge elements and sentiment stamps from our BUTTERFLY EFFECT set with a wonderful dripped rainbow of inks…

    Hello, I am super excited today as I reveal my first make with one of the brand new A5 stamp sets!

    For my first sample I used the gorgeous ‘Butterfly Effect’ set.

    To showcase it I made a canvas and, as I could not decide which colours to use, I went for them all….a rainbow of butterflies!

    This is what I got up to;

    I took my distress spray stains and sprayed across an A4 sheet of watercolour paper, adding water and allowing plenty of drippage.

    I then stamped around the edges with the “collage” element stamps which are really gorgeous in this set. There is a butterfly flourish (seen in the final photos) and these lovely circles.

    I stamped the large butterfly, coloured it with zig markers and cut it out minus the antenna.

    I stamped out 9 small butterflies and cut them out in the same way. I coloured them in a shades of 1 or 2 colours.

    I also stamped the sentiments and matted them on black card, adding my signature glossy accents to the circles/bubbles. Finally I adhered it to mount board. It is A4 size and destined for my little granddaughter who adores all things butterflies and spotted this!

    This set will be going onto my all time favourite stamps set list (yes I know this list constantly grows  but this really is a real stunner of a set).

    There will be lots more makes shared in the coming weeks using this fab new release so do check out the Visible Image social media. I do not blog everything I make, so if you would like to follow me on instagram you won’t miss anything!  You can find me here: @jane.tyrrell

    Thanks so much for stopping by.

    Bye for now,

    Jane x

    Amazing canvas! All the stamped elements look brilliant and the butterflies look beautiful! Lots of fussy cutting but so worth it! We are loving those rainbow drips too! Thank you Jane ♡
