A Butterfly and Gelatos Card

Today is a quickie post because I'm at a 3-day crafty crop and totally forgot to schedule my reminder post for the Mixed Media Card Challenge.

I LOVE this challenge!! We're asking you to link up a creation that has butterflies in it and optionally use some gold elements. 

For my card today, I used a sparkly chippy butterfly from Bo Bunny but the gold option isn't anywhere to be seen. 


I have all sorts of lovely process photos for you, but leave it to  me to forget to upload them before I left town. GRRR!!

So here are the steps:


  • I laid down a layer of bright yellow gelatos and then masked it using the ARTplorations Daisy Dance stencil. 
  • Through the stencil I put another layer of shimmery melon gelatos for the background and a shimmery green for the flower stencils. 
  • After I lifted the mask, I used the coordinating STAMPlorations Bloom Sketches set to stamp my daisy.
  • Then I used my finger to mix some of the colors together. I was going for a sort of Pop Art feel.
  • I embossed the Thanks sentiment and added a ribbon and a glittery butterfly chippy. 
And that's how you get this card. :)
I'm going to send this card over to play in the following challenges: 
Addicted to Stamps and More - Make your Mark
Mod Squad - Heat Emboss


As for you - head on over to play along in our Mixed Media Card Challenge! You'll have a great time and see some AWESOME inspirations in our gallery. Check out our POST TODAY to see what Shery and Shirley have cooked up.
