Butterfly Wishes


I was excited to make some butterflies shine, when I saw the challenge at TGIF was to use Glossy cardstock.


First, I chose three colors of ink for my butterflies: Petal Pink, Pineapple Punch, and Grapefruit Grove. I dabbed a Baby Wipe on the ink pads, one at a time, and swirled the three colors around on a piece of Glossy White cardstock. This was so pretty, I contemplated leaving it as a background, but ended up cutting four, glossy, butterflies with the Butterfly Duet Punch.


Now that I was thinking of shine, I thought it would be fun to experiment with the Crackle Paint background stamp and heat embossing. After covering the Crackle Paint stamp with VersaMark, I stamped it on a pre-cut piece of Whisper White cardstock. Then, I sprinkled it with Black Embossing Power, and set the powder with the Heat Tool. Happy with the black shine, I layered the Crackle Paint background on Basic Black cardstock, which I layered on a Petal Pink card base to tie in with the butterflies.


The butterflies flew to their spots on top of Dimensionals, with “wishes” in the middle. “Wishes” was cut with a die from the Well Written die set. I used Basic Black cardstock, covered it with VersaMark, sprinkled it with Black Embossing Powder, and set it with the Heat Tool. I was “wishing” I had black, glossy paper, but it was worth the trouble to make “wishes” shine.
