Time for MFT June Previews!

Hi everyone!  I’m excited today to begin sharing samples using new June releases from My Favorite Things!  My focus today is on Lisa Johnson’s Blissful Butterflies.  Sooo pretty!

For my first card, I used new Blueprints 4 to die-cut the rounded corner panel from X-Press It Blending Card.   I then used Copics and my air brush to color the panel light yellow to deeper orange. The butterflies were stamped in Hot Fudge ink with the sentiment stamped in Black Licorice.

Once the stamping was complete, I decided to splatter on some darker brown ink (using a dark brown Copic and ABS system).  Lastly, I adhered a couple of brown/gold rhinestone flourishes.

I die-cut a Whip Cream panel for the inside and stamped a second sentiment and butterfly from the set.

My next card is a little more on the clean and simple side.  I used a Smooth White card base along with a Grapesicle panel stamped in Grape Jelly ink using another of Lisa’s new sets, Art Expression Text.

The scalloped strip along the bottom was die-cut from Grape Jelly card stock using an element from Blueprints 4 and the clear rhinestones were color-matched using a V28 Copic.

The butterfly was stamped in Grape Jelly ink on Smooth White card stock then die-cut using coordinating Blissful Butterflies Die-namics.

I adhered the butterfly only along the center then slightly bent the wings forward for added dimension.  Before mailing, I’ll likely place a couple pieces of foam tape beneath the wings to keep them elevated.

On the inside, I added another small strip of Art Expression Text and stamped another butterfly.
