Hello everyone, it's Lisa here today on our favourite day of the month - Release Day! And I have two things to share with you - a card using lots of gorgeousness from the new release, plus I have a release reveal video up on my channel which shares all the new items for this month with you, along with my sample cards. If you want to catch the video, then scroll to the end of this post.
But first, for my card today, I wanted to use the new Slim Line Scallop Framed Dies set, along with the new Slim Line Details Of A Wing Stencil. For this card, I also used the Monarch Butterfly Insert. So, here is my card!
I began by taking an 8.5" x 3.5" panel of white cardstock and laying the Slim Line Details Of A Wing Stencil on top. I secured the card panel from the back using low tack tape. I then took some Distress Inks and blended rainbow colours through it using Life Changing Blender Brushes. Once I'd removed the stencil, I took the smaller scalloped rectangle die from the new SLDS Scallop Framed Dies system and ran the panel through my die cutting machine.
Next I took one of the circular frames from the Scallop Framed Die set and cut a window into my ink blended panel. And I kept the resulting thin circular frame as I needed that later on. The two butterflies were cut from the Monarch Butterfly Slim Line Die Cutting Insert. This insert die will actually cut a window/insert into a panel and leave the butterfly intact, but I wanted to separate it out, so I just trimmed it out twice. I could then stack them on top of each other for some dimension.
I adhered the ink blended panel to an 8.5" x 3.5" base card and then I glued the tiny circular frame around the window - the one that I had saved from earlier. It finishes off the circular window nicely! The two stacked butterflies were then added in and I decorated them with a few gems from the new Reflections Gem Mix.
To finish the card, I took a sentiment from Dance Mode On and stamped it onto white cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied gold embossing powder, heat set it and then popped it up with foam tape.
All the items I have used are listed below. And for those of you that would like to see the release in full, here is the video. I am sure you are going to love all the new stamp sets, dies and stencils!
