Hi crafty friends

I have had my eye on these Butterflies by Pinkfresh Studio for soooooo long. I loved them so much I purchased the whole suite-Stamp set, die, stencils and hot foil!

To me, the elegance and beauty of this set sums up everything Pinkfresh Studio.

I decided to make a set of cards as I really wanted to show off some different colour combinations. I began by hot foiling three sets in champagne coloured foil. This is a safe colour for most combinations. 

Then, pulling out my Pinkfresh Studio Dye Inks I blended the foiled images using the coordinating Butterflies Stencils. Part of the wings overlap so, I wanted inks that would blend well and make another colour effectively.

1. Ink Colours: Slumber/Sapphire/Passion Fruit/Berrylicious

2. Ink Colours: Summer Shower/Storm/Sunkissed/Marigold

3. Ink Colours: Ocean Breeze/Mermaid Cove/Limoncello/Bay Leaf

I die cut each large butterfly out then, die cut part of the butterfly from an A2 white cardstock panel. With foam tape, I attached each butterfly over the panel and card base, ensuring the left wing hung over the edge. This really helped it pop and give a suspended look. Like a butterfly in flight so to speak. 

To finish I added a reversed hot foil sentiment from the Wonderful Sentiments Hot Foil set also by Pinkfresh Studio. I added some Metallic Silver Pearls to two cards but Aqua Glitter Drops on my centre card as I couldn't resist how well they matched!

Hope you love these cards as much as I do?!

Of course, I made a reel that you can check out over on Instagram @pinkfreshstudio as its really shows off how these cards came together.

Until next time friends....

Butterfly cards are my favouirte! And these butterflies are such a classic from pink fresh. It doesn’t matter how many releases they do, each time I see cards made from these butterflies I fall a little more in love with this set! I really like the colour choice you used!
