I'm using one of the newest quote stamps from Quietfire Design  

("Sometimes I Just Look Up...")


ID: MC Oct/16 - Butterflies Bendi Card - Easter - Sometimes I Just Look Up card
size: 5"w x 7"h (card flat)

Created: October 23, 2016

I'm submitting this card and the coffee one I did the other day to the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine...Now the waiting...

 I'm using one of the newest card structures and a couple previous files - available on the Silhouette onLine store (click on images to purchase)

It's rare I use anything exactly as is... I love scavenging and taking bits and pieces to create my own take on something...

This is what the images looks like in the file 


I opened the Silhouette file in Studio and resized it to 13.829 wide, giving me a card base that is 5"w. The base is now wider than my 11"w cardstock, so most of the right tab hung off my paper/mat. I ungrouped everything and moved stuff off the mat. I cut the card base from a cream toned cardstock. I then moved the base to the other side edge and cut the tab piece only. I then spliced the two parts together creating my card base.

I cut the various butterflies from the cream toned cardstock, inked, embossed, glittered - then adhered to the various butterflies on the card. The swallowtail I inked with black and embossed with Emerald Creek "Onyx Frost", adhered to base butterfly and applied Quickie Glue pen and then sprinkled with Stickles Dry Glitter "Thistle" & "Eucalyptus". The Monarch butterfly inked the base butterfly with Distress "Scattered Straw" and then some "Wild Honey". Filigree layer inked with "Frayed Burlap" and embossed with Emerald Creek "Charred Gold". The small butterflies were inked and glittered or embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder.

I stamped the grasses on the tabs using Penny Black "Enjoy Life" stamp set using Distress "Forest Moss".

eCut the bunny increasing it's size to 2.011 x 2.851 and cut from the cream cardstock, sponging with the burlap adding a stronger layer in some sections to add depth. Sponged a touch of "Spun Sugar" in the ear area. Added a mini black rhinestone for the eye. Applied glue to the tail and adhered white flocking. Adhered the bunny just to the right, just shy of the slot, on the right had tab.

Sponged a bit of the green on the bottom edge of the right tab.

eCut the "Easter" from the cream cardstock, inked with the straw and honey and clear embossed. Adhered to right tab.

Stamped the quote on a piece of the cream cardstock using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Die cut using Spellbinders oval die set, sponged edges with a dirty blue sponge and adhered to card base.
