Fluttering butterflies with circles

Fluttering butterflies with circles

08 Apr 2024 4 Comments

Hello Pinkfresh friends!

Raquel here with four designs using the recently released Fluttering Butterflies Stamp set and several circle dies. I've you have checked Pinkfresh Studio April Challenge, it's all about circles, so I decided to create several designs using circles.

I started this circle card cutting out the front circle frame using the Nested Circles dies. Then I cut out two more circle dies with the biggest circle die with cream cardstock and scored one of them at 1/4 inch so I could adhered both circles and create my cardbase. 

Next up I adhered several strips of colored cardstock onto a white cardstock and stamped the Sending Love stamp set and clear heat embossed it just to add a little extra detail to the background. Finally I added  one of the leaves of the Fluttering Butterflies stamp set  heat embossed on vellum and added my sentiment from the Artsy Floral Stamp set


 For my next project, I used the same Fluttering Butterflies Stamp set. This time I just used the leaves of this set. I white heat embossed this stamp and added color to the leaves using the Coordinating stencils. The colors I used are: Cherry Blossom, Peony, Begonia, Peach Fuzz, Sweet Mustard, Marigold, Waterfall, Turquoise, Key Lime and Olive.

 I decided to use the Stitched mini slimline die from the Mini Slimline Essentials dies and to add some extra volume I applied some white texture paste onto this stitched panel with the Slim Leafy Squares Stencil.

Next up I cut out several circles using two circle dies from the Mini Slimline Essentials dies and lightly applied some ink onto these circles: Cherry Blossoms, Peach Fuzz Sweet Mustard, Key Lime and Waterfall.


 I cut these circles in half and foam mounted this circles on both sided of the front stitched panel. Next up I arranged all the leaves creating a continuous leaf and foam mounted it onto the slimline circle panel. Lastly gold heat embossed my sentiment from the set from the Artsy Floral Stamp set.

For my next project I made another mini slimline card using again the Mini Slimline Essentials dies and the braided circles dies that also come in this die set. I used these circles on the right hand side to create some interest.

Then I white heat embossed the Fluttering Butterflies Stamp set and colored these images with the coordinating stencils using blue, teal and purple inks: Waterfall, Turquoise, Paradise, Slumber, Saphire, Soft Lilac and Candy Violet



Once I die cut the butterflies and leaves with the coordinating die  I foam mounted from the bottom left to the upper right and tucked some of the leaves from the same set white heat embossed in vellum.

The sentiment is also from the Artsy Floral Stamp set.

For my last project I decided to make a shaker card with the new gems Clear with gold Dust.

I started by cutting and A2 note card with the Essential Stiched Scallop circle dies. Then I dry emboss this piece using the Quadrant Backdrop hot foil, adhered some acetate on the back and added some double sided foam adhesive. Then I added some gems and closed the back of this panel with another A2 note card partially inked with Waterfall ink.

To decorate the front panel, I arranged the leaves from the Fluttering Butterflies Stamp set around the front circle. I had colored these leaves using the same colors I used in my previous card.

 Lastly I gold heat emboss the sentiment from the Artsy Floral Stamp set.

I hope these ideas inspire you and have some fun creating!

Thank you so much for stopping by and happy crafting!
